Finding The Right Groomer For Your Pet

We take our pets to the groomer for any number of reasons: To keep their coats shiny and healthy; to remove dirt and debris; to shave or trim fur in hot weather; to acquire a special look; to get nails trimmed, and more. So how do you find the right groomer for your pet’s needs?

We can help!

We’ve put together a list of some things to consider when looking for a groomer.

  1. Is the groomer conveniently located?
  2. What hours and days is it open? Do those hours fit with my schedule?
  3. How much are the services? Do the fees fit into my family budget?
  4. Can I leave my pet for the day?
  5. Am I required to leave my pet for the day?
  6. What special services are available? For example, what is the cost for detangling matted hair, burrs in fur, etc.?
  7. What do you do to calm pets down? (Some groomers might sedate pets with drugs before grooming.)
  8. Does the facility feel safe and inviting?
  9. Are dogs and cats kenneled separately in the facility?
  10. Do the other animals and owners seem to be relaxed and happy with the services?
