The internet has taken a turn for the worse after a dog groomer shared a video of an eager customer who wasn’t ready to end their pampering session.
Shared on Wednesday on TikTok, user sabrenahnitterville posted the now viral clip of her and the Siberian Husky named Akita. The video now has over 20 million views and can be seen here.
The video shows Sabrenahnitterville holding the dog’s leash and trying to get her out of the bathing station. But when she pulls on the leash, the determined pup stays put and makes a hilarious screaming sound.
In stitches, the poster smiles at the camera and tries to convince the dog to move. With over 49,000 comments, TikTok users were thrilled with the hilarious video.
The dog grooming market in the US is big business. According to research by Arizton, the total revenue share of the pet industry was $99 billion, with 42 percent of the U.S. pet grooming services market being made up of companies providing pet grooming services.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), the Siberian Husky is the 14th most popular dog in the US. The Husky’s coat is thickly coated and is known for great stamina. The Husky’s coat needs some maintenance. The AKC recommends weekly brushing to keep the coat and skin in good condition. The breed has a double coat – an undercoat and guard hair, the undercoat is shed twice a year and it is important to “rake out” the old coat which is often done by a professional.
“I swear huskies are so dramatic,” wrote one commenter, while another TikToker said, “A dog that wants a bath. Nice.”
Another viewer joked, “This is me when my husband tries to get me out of bed in the morning,” and another wrote, “Typical husky, screaming constantly!”
One viewer joked: “Am I the drama?!”
The Sabrenahnetterville poster has been sharing clips of her dog grooming since January and now has over 95,000 followers who love to see the adorable dogs getting a little pampered.
In a later video, the poster updated viewers of Akita with a second video of her — this time on the grooming table. The caption read: “Here’s another video of Akita because she’s your favorite! No Huskies were hurt in the making of this video! She’s not happy with the grooming process and isn’t afraid to tell you.”
The video shows the dog screaming and crying as the groomer tries to shave her paws.
