"I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that dogs think humans are nuts." – John Steinbeck


A CLEAN DOG IS A HAPPY DOG


Love and bath are both 4-letter words, and though many dogs cringe at the sound of the letters ‘B-A-T-H,’ keeping a dog clean has its health merits. Aside from the obvious, a clean dog means the skin is in good shape, the nails are properly trimmed, and any grooming is in order.


You can learn to do it yourself.. I tried, but DramaQueen Grigri screamed like a little girl when I only touched the brush!! But he behaves as the angel he isn't at the groomer, so it was decided very quickly.. by Grigri.. the droomer it is :)



Luckily I have found an amazing one.


The importance of grooming goes way beyond just keeping your pet clean. Regular brushing and baths not only remove dirt and keep your pet smelling fresh, but it also helps to reduce shedding, remove

dead skin cells, stimulate blood circulation, and distribute natural oils evenly throughout the coat. In other words, grooming is an essential part of pet ownership!


But with so many different groomers out there, maybe you need some tips how to find the perfect one for your dog


Ask for Recommendations

One way to find a good pet groomer is to ask for references. Friends, family, and other pet owners can be excellent sources of information on finding a qualified pet groomer in your area. You can also check online review sites to see what other pet owners say about local pet groomers.

Questions to Ask

Once you’ve gathered some references, the next step is to schedule a meet-and-greet with the groomer.

It is an excellent opportunity to ask questions and get to know the groomer. Here are a few questions to ask when you’re looking for a pet groomer:


* What are the groomer’s qualifications?

* Do they have experience grooming the type of pet you have?

* What is their grooming process?

* Do they use any harsh chemicals or dyes?

* How much do they charge?


What Should You Look for in Grooming Facility?


First, the facility should be clean and well-maintained. The floor should be cleaned regularly, and all surfaces should be sanitized. The grooming area should be free of debris, and all equipment should be in good working order.


Second, the staff should be professional and courteous. The groomer should be able to answer all of your questions, and they should make you and your pet feel comfortable.


Third, the groomers should be experienced and skilled. They should know how to handle all types of pets, and they should be able to cut and style the hair of any breed.


Finally, the prices should be fair and reasonable.


What to Tell Your Pet Groomer?

Here are a few things to keep in mind to tell your pet groomer to make sure your pet gets the best possible care:


Let the groomer know what kind of pet you have or any behavioral concerns your pet has. It is essential because different groomers have different levels of experience with different types of animals.

Ensure to tell the groomer about any medical conditions your pet has or any allergies they might have. It will help the groomer ensure your pet is comfortable during the session and avoid potential

complications.


What is the Perfect Mobile Pet Groomer near Me?


As a pet owner, you want to do everything you can to ensure your furry friend is healthy and happy.

Many pet parents ask; what is the best dog/cat grooming near me? Or what is the best pet groomer near me?

Part of that is finding a qualified pet groomer to care for your pet’s grooming needs. But with so many groomers, how can you be sure you’re choosing the right one?

You can ask your friends who have dogs, or even het vet as they have many contacts and clients that maybe use a groomer


Final Thoughts

There are many things to consider when looking for a pet groomer. Location, cost, and reviews are all crucial factors.


When choosing a pet grooming service, it's important to follow your instinct,.. does if feel safe to you to leave your dog behind with the groomer of your choice or do you have concerns, ..if you have concerns, look for another one.. dogs can't talk and rely on you to keep them save.

And speaking as someone who did just that, I can ensure you don't hesitate, your dog's safety is on the line.



Do you use a groomer or are you the perfect dogmom and my hero and trim your dog yourself ?
