Proper grooming is essential for the long-term health of your pet. When selecting a groomer, take a few simple but critical steps to ensure that you trust your pet with an experienced, qualified groomer.
Ask if the groomer is licensed and belongs to professional state or local organizations such as the National Dog Groomers Association. How long has the groomer been in business? Look for a groomer with at least four or five years of experience.
Does the groomer appear confident and relaxed or tense and frustrated? Observe the groomer with your pet. Although the grooming experience causes some pets to be nervous or anxious, be wary if your pet seems more apprehensive than usual.
Are the grooming facilities clean, well lit, and well maintained? The facilities don’t need to be posh or high-tech, but they should be tidy and safe. Don’t leave your animal if the facility has a strong smell of urine or feces.
Request a list of referrals. A reputable groomer will be happy to provide positive referrals and testimonials from satisfied customers.
