Time to See the Groomer?

You and your love-bug are cuddling when suddenly, you notice an odor. Someone needs a bath and it isn’t you! If you’re short on time, don’t have the right tools or lack patience and dog grooming experience, it’s time to call in a professional. Dog groomers provide many services for your dog including bathing, brushing, clipping, nail care and ear care. Reasons to see a professional groomer include:

• Convenience. There’s nothing like dropping off the furry one and picking up a soft, clean, sweet-smelling dog.

• Comfort for your dog. Professional dog groomers know how to make your dog cooperate for nail trimmings or ear cleanings without hurting him.

•  Professional products. The right tools and products get the job done easily.

•  Detection of injuries or parasites. Your dog will be given a thorough inspection for cuts or open wounds which will be treated prior to any service.  A groomer can also alert you to external parasites and treat your dog accordingly.

• Information on keeping your dog looking good. A professional groomer will give you tips, not only on your dog’s grooming, but also on how to care for him on a daily basis.

How to Choose a Groomer

Where you take your dog for his grooming can make a big difference in how he’s treated. Ask vets, trainers and pet supply store owners for recommendations. Before booking an appointment, go to the facility and look for the following:


• Friendly and knowledgeable staff

• Gentle and kind treatment of dogs

• Area where dogs are kept before and after grooming

• Atmosphere, not too loud, hot, cold or uncomfortable
