Some Questions for Pet Grooming Services

In this day and age, many dog and cat owners acquire the services of pet grooming businesses. This type of service can especially be helpful to animal owners that have little free time to wash or trim the fur of their pets. It is important to choose a pet spa or mobile grooming service for animals that meets your qualifications and price range. Therefore you should consider asking the questions below.

  • What pets or animals do you groom?
    While some animal cleaning and grooming specialists may only assist with dogs, others may provide services for cats and other animals as well. Consider the pet you have, and be sure to inquire about this up front.

  • What are your rates for pet grooming?
    Different local and mobile animal grooming businesses will charge different rates. Inquire about specific fees for nail trimming, fur washing, and hair cutting. Each professional can likely give you a price quote on your cat or dog. Compare the prices to other pet grooming services in your area.

  • What shampoo do you use to clean the animal?
    It is common for many pet owners to be concerned about the products used on their cats and dogs. For instance, if you want your pet to be washed with an environmentally friendly or all-natural shampoo, you should specify this. Some pet grooming services may not offer this option.

  • What other animals are present when my pet is being washed or groomed?
    If you are concerned about the safety of your cat or puppy, you should find out how the grooming service is set up, and what other animals are nearby or in the same room. This way you can better choose a service that meets your specifications.

    If you have a passion for animals, consider becoming a pet groomer. You could open you own animal spa and resort, or even a mobile shop.

    As a groomer, one of your main responsibilities will be washing cats and dogs. You will check to make sure that their ears are clean and their nails are trimmed and clipped. You will also have to give them hair cuts in the style that their owner wants. Think of it as a pet salon, where you get to pamper and care for your guests.

    If you want to extend your services, you could even offer pet boarding and training. This would entail watching people’s cats and dogs when they travel and teaching them obedience skills. However, you would still be responsible for washing and cleaning the pets, but they would stay with you for extended amounts of time.

    If you live in a big city, you might also open a mobile parlor. You could offer all the same services as at the salon, but you would travel with all your products and supplies to your clients. You will still need to be able to offer baths with shampoo and claw clipping services, so make sure you have everything you need on your truck. From a simple brushing to getting someone’s pet ready for a show, your van needs to be as well equipped like a grooming shop would be.

    To open a pet grooming business you should love animals, and probably have some technical or certificate training. You might also want an advanced degree in business.

    Opening your own pet grooming business will allow you to do what you love and live a happy and rewarding life.
