How to Find the Right Dog Groomer

Your pet is an important part of the family. So, just like any family member, you want them to stay healthy, happy and clean.

Many pet owners rely on the services of a professional breeder to help maintain their pet’s hygiene, look, and health. Whether you’re bringing a new puppy home, or looking to find a new groomer in your area, our staff has put together some tried and tested tips for finding the right dog groomer for you and your pet.

Find a groomer – ask friends who they might recommend. Talk to your vet, your neighbors, or your coworkers. They should be able to point you in the right direction. A quick Google search for groomers in your area can also help you find the name of a groomer near you.

Stop by – Once you’ve found a groomer you like with a solid reputation online, pay them a visit in person. You can ask questions about their background, credentials and if they might be right fit for your pet. An in-person visit also gives you the chance to tour their facilities.

Get the full picture – make sure you understand what the service will cost and what it will include. Also, be sure to understand the procedure for setting up an appointment, cancellation policies. These important details matter when you’re choosing a groomer who you’ll want to work with for multiple grooming visits.

Finally, prepare for your pet’s first visit – make sure your pet is up to date on his or her vaccinations prior to scheduling your first appointment.
