Choosing the Right Dog Groomer

Friday, October 30, 2015

DOGGROOMIf your dog has long hair and if you don’t have time to give him regular baths, you may want to take him to a groomer on a regular basis. When choosing a groomer, first ask about their experience.

How long have they been in the dog grooming business?
What kind of training did they receive? Are they certified by NDGAA or another organization?
Do they specialize in any breed size or particular breed of dog? Are there any restrictions on the types of dogs they work with?
Ask about their level of service like cleaning your dog’s ears, checking his anal glands etc. Find out whether or not their fees are within your budget.
Safety is very important. I would ask the following questions.
Do they use a hand held dryer or a cage dryer? (I would prefer a hand held). If they do use a cage dryer, find out if someone always stays with the dogs. If they don’t, I would go elsewhere.
Do they sedate the dogs for grooming? If so, who does it and what type of training do they have?
Where do they keep the dogs when they’re not being groomed or waiting to be groomed?
What happens in an emergency or if your dog is injured? Is there a veterinarian on call or does someone have first aid training?
How is their record keeping? Do they keep complete records like medical, vaccinations and grooming history?
All of these things are important to consider when choosing a groomer.
After his first grooming session, give your dog a dog treat and lots of love! Remember, your pets count.
