Choosing a Dog Groomer
Asking the right questions allows you to select the right Groomer!
- How many years have you been grooming dogs? More experienced Groomers tend to offer better services and a safer environment. Select a Groomer with at least five years’ experience.
- Where will my dog be kept before and after grooming? Ensure your dog will be kept in a comfortable, safe, and secure area while not on the grooming table. Don’t be afraid to ask to see the holding area to make sure your dog will not be in a crate too small or a stack of crates in the corner of the storage room.
- Will you use my dog’s medicated shampoo? Your Groomer should be happy to use your dog’s prescription shampoos, conditioners, and sprays.
- Do you use heated cage dryers? Injuries and deaths have been recorded with heated cage dryers; Groomers who still use heated cage dryers should be avoided.
- Will my dog be taken out to potty? If your dog is expected to be with the Groomer for more than three hours, a potty break should be provided. If your dog tinkles a river when you pick him/her up, you may want to choose another Groomer.
- Will my dog be given water while he/she is here? If your dog is expected to be with the Groomer for more than three hours, a water break should be provided. If your dog seems to be dying from thirst when you pick him/her up, you may want to choose another Groomer.
