Finding the Right Pet Groomer

Love to ensure your fur baby is neat and smelling divine? Absolutely! But how do you navigate the huge array of services out there to avoid your pooch’s chop being a flop?

The right pet groomer possesses certain personal qualities. They like working with animals and are comfortable around them. They have compassion for and patience with their four-legged clients.

However, they must also deal with pet owners, so they must show the same traits when dealing with humans. Pet groomers must have physical stamina. Not only might they need to lift heavy animals onto the worktable, some grooming sessions can last for two hours or more.

Groomers must be detail-oriented, especially when preparing animals for a show as each breed must be carefully groomed to meet established standards.

Consider these points when searching for the right groomer for your pet.

Although most grooming tasks do not require extensive training, the more experience a groomer has, the better. You want a groomer who is reputable, the same way you want a beautician or any personal care professional to have the necessary skills and training when you need services yourself.

You have to find the person who fits your pet and your individual needs. You want someone who knows what they are doing in general with any pet and for your particular pet as well. Take the time to check them out to find a groomer who is qualified.

Some groomers may require proof of immunisations for your pet, so remember if they are requiring this, they are thinking about the health and welfare of all of their clients, including your pet, so this is a good thing, not an annoyance.

Many groomers prefer that the owners are out of sight so there are no distractions for them or the pet. The presence of an owner may be more detrimental than helpful if your pet is trying to get away from the groomer and get to you. Your pet could get cut or hurt the groomer if they are too agitated and distracted to sit still. If you’ve found a good groomer you are comfortable leaving your pet with and returning when the grooming is finished, that may work better for you, the pet and the groomer. However, some pets are more comfortable if their human companion is nearby. Find out what the groomer’s preference is and work with them.

Not all pets like being groomed, or they may resist going to the groomers. Some are more aggressive than others, particularly when put in what they see as an uncomfortable, stressful or threatening situation. Know your pet’s temperament and relay that to the groomer. They may or may not be able or willing to work with your pet.

Basic grooming may include bathing, cutting nails or cutting hair. There are groomers who also offer over the top pampering for your pet. Whether or not that is necessary is up to you. If cost is an issue, compare groomers and see what services are included or offered for what fees. Big and fancy is not necessarily better than simple and straightforward service. Know what you are getting for your money.

In summary

Going to the groomers should not be a horrible experience for your pet or for you. Some pets love & anticipate it so much they get excited when it’s time to go see their groomer. The right groomer can make all the difference in the experience your pet has. Since pet grooming is a service you will need on a continuing basis, finding the perfect fit for you and your pet is important.
