Questions to Ask a Dog Groomer!

Questions to Ask a Dog Groomer!

Do you get your dog groomed professionally by a groomer or do you do it at home?

Dog grooming usually includes brushing, trimming nails, cleaning ears, and bathing them regularly.

It also helps prevent mats, control shedding, and detect health issues.

The Dog Stop says β€œNot only does getting your dog groomed make them look and smell amazing, but it can also help with their overall wellbeing and health”.

Like dog boarding, there are questions you’ll need to ask a new groomer before scheduling an appointment.

Groomer Questions!

Here are some questions to ask if you’re searching for a groomer!

πŸ› How long have you been grooming dogs?
πŸ• Do you have special areas of expertise?
πŸ› Do you have experience with these types of breeds?
πŸ• Do you like working on any age dog, or prefer only younger dogs?
πŸ› How long will my dog wait before grooming is ready to start?
πŸ• How long will the appointment take?
πŸ› How do you handle frightened dogs?
πŸ• Are the dogs secure and supervised on the table at all times?
πŸ› How do you prevent shampoo in the eyes?
πŸ• Is a crate in a cool room, with airflow, provided before and afterwards?
πŸ› Do you use cage dryers? If so, do you use the heated ones or the ones that circulate air flow?
πŸ• Do you protect the ears from sound when using the dryer?
πŸ› Are you able to thoroughly remove mats without shaving? If it’s a must to shave, will it be minimal?
πŸ• What kind of products do you use, and are you able to provide unscented shampoo and conditioner?
πŸ› Do you provide fresh cold water after grooming?
πŸ• Do you provide potty breaks?
πŸ› Do you require proof of vaccination? If so, how does that work? Do you ask for proof before each appointment?
πŸ• How much do you charge?

Asking the right questions can help you navigate the grooming process easier.
