How to Choose the Best Groomer for Your Pet

How to Choose the Best Groomer for Your Pet

This year, make sure your pet is the cutest on the block by taking him to a local groomer. Not only can a groomer keep your pet looking its best, he can also help keep dander to a minimum and provide services like nail trimming and teeth cleaning. If you want your dog or cat to look and feel incredible, follow these tips to choose the best groomer!

This one is easy — ask the neighborhood pets who they recommend! Just kidding. Start by asking your veterinarian for his or her top picks. They may even offer grooming services! You can be sure your pet is in good hands with someone who already knows him well. You could also ask friends and neighbors for their top choices. If you see a pet with an attractive cut, ask the owner where it was done.

Since you’re looking for someone who will care for your dog as well as you would, be sure to use a certified groomer. Visit the American Kennel Club or National Dog Groomers Association website and look up your potential groomers’ names to ensure they are properly certified.

Check out websites and social media for photos of your potential groomer’s work. You may even be able to find similar breeds to yours to get a good idea of what your pet would look like. You may also want to schedule a phone call or in-person meeting with your potential groomer to ask questions. A few things to inquire about are safety procedures, pet vaccination requirements, experience with your pet’s breed, and where pets are kept when not being groomed.

Once you think that you’ve chosen the right groomer, take your pet in for a test grooming session. Look at your pet closely after the session to see if he seems anxious or stressed. If you’re not satisfied with the grooming techniques or have any doubts about the way your pet was handled, it’s okay to find a different groomer. Pets are family members and deserve the best possible care. Good luck — I hope it’s your pet’s best year yet!
