House Call Dog Grooming FAQs
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 VIP service that provides pet grooming performed by a professional groomer who 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 set up in a convenient spot and bathing 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 that is easily contained and can simply be 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. Being groomed in their own domain gives them the comfort that everything is ok and that no one is leaving them behind. Even though a dog may be groomed on a regular basis it sometimes doesn’t get easier on them depending on everything that happens around them. When you drop your dogs are off at a grooming salon they get put through a lot and experience quite a bit of commotion & agitation leaving some anxious until days after their groom. Another benefit of this approach to grooming is that more than likely you will always get the same groomer at every appointment. Your dog and his groomer can then have the ability to build a strong bond of trust, relieving a lot of anxiety that you and your dog may experience when it is that time of the month for grooming.
Who is House Call Grooming Best Suited For?
House call grooming is pretty much the best option for smaller dogs especially senior dogs, new puppies, dogs that don’t do well at a salon, dogs with owners who can’t or prefer not to leave the house, dogs with separation anxiety and/or dogs with special needs that cannot be accommodated at a grooming salon. House call grooming is also great for pet parents who would like to be present while their pup is getting their groom. This alternative provides transparency that no other method of pet grooming can offer. This is particularly 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 but can get 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 because carrying a table around suited for the larger sized breeds is just not practical. Talk with your house call groomer and see if your dog will do well being groomed at home. 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 or households with a lot of commotion creating too many distractions making conditions too dangerous.
What Services Are Provided With House Call Grooming?
House call groomers can provide quality full grooming services right in your home. Any service provided by in-salon groomers can also be provided by house call groomers. These services include teeth cleaning, nail cutting/grinding, brushing, bathing, expression of anal glands, trimming, and a full haircut.
In conclusion house call grooming is a wonderful lesser-known service that is full of benefits with basically no downside for you or your dog. Call us today to try house call services to see how dog grooming should be done!
