Pet Grooming FAQs

Why is pet grooming important?

Obviously, a well groomed pet is a cute pet but grooming is much more than just pet bathing, a haircut, and a bow. Proper pet grooming is important for many reasons, including:

  • Combats shedding 
  • Helps discover and get rid of fleas and ticks
  • Promotes healthy skin, nails, and teeth
  • Prevents dirt and bacteria from being spread around the house
  • Can help identify rashes, lumps, inflammation, dental issues, ear problems 
  • Helps keep them cool and comfortable

What if my pet has anxiety or is scared of being groomed?

If your pet has anxiety, it's a good idea to call to talk to the groomer before the appointment. Our groomers are well trained on how to help a scared pet. They may suggest a non-grooming visit to help get your pet used to them. Treats and happy scratches may be involved to make it a positive experience during pet bathing. You can also schedule a less busy time for “dog grooming near me.”

What does grooming include?

Grooming can be as simple as a pet bath, or as involved as a full day at the spa. Grooming can include:

  • pet bath (shampoo and conditioning
  • hair cut
  • nail trimming
  • blow dry
  • brushing/comb out
  • dental/breath treatment
  • medicated flea bath
  • ear cleaning

How often should my pet be groomed?

While it depends on the breed, generally a pet should go about every 6 weeks.

Professional groomers have the proper tools. From special shampoo and skin treatments to special bathtubs and tables made just for pets. Our professional groomers can make the process less stressful for pets and their owners.
