Things to Ask Your Dog or Cat Groomer

Pet grooming services simplify an owner's schedule by handling routine cleaning tasks for them. These specialists keep nails and claws trimmed, wash the fur or hair, and give the animal a thorough brushing. This is an important aspect of care that shouldn't be overlooked. Matted, tangled fur leads to trapped dirt and, in some cases, traps moisture causing painful, itchy hot spots in dogs. Below are questions you should ask your animal's veterinarian, kennel or other professional before signing on for these care services.

  • Do you offer weekend appointments or mobile services?
    Many private grooming clinics are open only during the standard weekday. If your work schedule makes it difficult to drop off your animal during normal hours, a mobile service offers you more flexibility. Clinics within chain pet stores often offer weekend and evening hours for your convenience.

  • What kinds of shampoos and cleaning products do you use?
    Animals have delicate skin and many have allergies to chemical ingredients. Find out if the salon uses organic shampoos and conditioning products that are gentle on the skin and eyes.

  • How do you handle fearful or aggressive animals?
    Some clinics will not accept animals that show aggression with strangers. Others will put on protective gloves and muzzle the animal during the bath. This can be stressful so make sure you're comfortable with their methods before leaving your cat or dog for services.

  • What does your service entail?
    A solid grooming service should wash, dry and brush your animal's entire coat. For some breeds, hair around the eyes and ears must be clipped. Nails and dewclaws need trimming. Finally, some services even offer a quick tooth brushing followed by a safe mouthwash that freshens the animal's breath.

    A number of professionals work as cat and dog grooming experts. While some of these pet care workers are employed with kennels, others work for mobile grooming businesses and day spas for pets. It is amazing how many services and products are offered for dogs and cats at this point. When you get involved with this field, you can expect to handle all kinds of fur cleaning, hair washing, and nail clipping. After all, animals like cats and dogs require baths, hair cuts, and even teeth cleaning at times. A lot just depends on the breed of the animal, and the individual who owns the pet.

    You typically need some training when you work as a pet groomer. This way you understand how to properly wash cats and dogs, as well as trim their nails, and brush their fur coats. Most people like to keep their pet’s nails trimmed so they are not too sharp, and their hair brushed so it does not shed a great deal. You can expect to use a variety of combs, pet shampoos, brushes, gloves, and nail clippers in this business. This type of equipment is simply part of the trade. You may also offer pet treats and collar products for cats and dogs. Keep in mind that many pet owners are grooming their animals for pet shows and competitions. Therefore they may need some grooming tips, and well as some vet advice.

    When you work as a dog and cat groomer or at a pet care facility, you may often deal with animal owners, as well as pet care product supply distributors at times.
