Groomer | Owner

My biggest passion in life is dogs and their care. After working with dogs for over 10 years I have seen a lot and I continue to learn something every day. I love sharing the knowledge I gained through the experiences I have working as a house call dog groomer.
What is House Call Grooming?

What is House Call Grooming?

House call grooming is a form of mobile pet grooming as the groomer is mobile and they come to you. It is a luxury service that provides pet grooming performed by a professional groomer. The groomer brings their tools and equipment to your house to groom your dog in your home. Typically they bring everything needed to complete a professional-quality groom including a table. They just set up the table in a convenient spot and bathe your dog in a bathtub or sink. Some people are concerned by the mess of the fur in their home but in most cases, there is a minimal amount of mess. The fur is easily contained and will simply get vacuumed up. 

What are the benefits of House Call Grooming?

House call grooming provides a comfortable and low-stress environment for your dog during one of the most stressful things that they endure throughout their life. That is to say when you have your dog groomed in their own domain you are giving them the comfort and sense of being that everything is ok and that no one is leaving them behind. Even if a dog gets groomed on a regular basis it sometimes doesn’t get easier on them. This depends greatly on everything that happens to them.

Who is House Call Grooming Best Suited For?

House call grooming is pretty much the best option for most dogs.

Some dogs that will benefit the most are:

  • Small dogs
  • Senior dogs
  • New puppies
  • Dogs that don’t do well at a salon
  • Owners who can’t or prefer not to leave the house
  • Dogs with separation anxiety
  • Special needs dogs that cannot be accommodated at a salon

House call grooming is also great for those who want to be present while their pup is being groomed. This alternative provides transparency that no other method of pet grooming can offer. Above all this is comforting especially for families who may have had a negative experience taking their dog somewhere away from their home. 

Who is House Call Grooming Not For?

House call grooming is great for any dog however, it will be a little more difficult and messier for the bigger shedding dogs. It is also harder for the groomer to groom the larger dogs in this setting. Carrying a table around suited for the larger-sized breeds is just not practical moreover is just not safe. Talk with your house call groomer to see if this is a good option for you and your dog.

  • It is also not ideal for owners who do not have a large enough sink or a bathtub.
  • Owners who do not have a large enough space or adequate lighting in their home for the groomer to safely be able to complete the service.
  • Households with a lot of commotion as well as too many distractions thus making conditions too dangerous.
