Just like humans, pets need to be groomed regularly to maintain health and hygiene. You might think your dog’s fur doesn’t look as bad as it could, so you don’t feel compelled to take him in for grooming. However, there are many benefits associated with professional grooming that can not only make your pup more comfortable during the process, but also help them stay healthier.
What are some reasons every pet parent should have their dog professionally groomed? Read on below and find out!
Grooming is an essential part of owning a dog, no matter what breed you have. Sure, you might bathe your dog at home, but you may forget or avoid trimming their nails and expressing their anal glands. Professional grooming includes everything from bathing with professional quality shampoos, and conditioners, nail trimming, ear cleaning, to giving them a proper haircut. These treatments are necessary to keep your dog healthy and comfortable.
Leave It To The Experts
While it might tempt you to save some money and time by cutting your dog’s hair yourself, you may not know the dangers of grooming at home. Groomers are the experts in cutting and styling your dog’s hair. They know what will work best for any breed, face shape, fur type or skin condition that may affect a trim job. Plus, groomers go through schooling with safety in mind, which is not something you can say about yourself!
Think about it, dog grooming requires using sharp objects and other tools or equipment around a constantly moving dog. One wrong move and your dog may end up in the emergency room. Dog groomers are trained to work with moving animals and are also trained to clean them properly. It requires professional training to shave sanitary areas, underarms, and around their face.
Saving Money And Time
For most experienced dog groomers, it takes 2-3 hours to groom a single dog from start to finish. For inexperienced groomers, it can take twice the time, which can lead to frustration for both you and your dog. Why cause your pet unnecessary stress and anxiety at home, when you can have a professional dog groomer take care of them in a safe and efficient way? Also, you’ll get to pick up a dog who will be overjoyed to see you!
Not to mention, you can save thousands of dollars on professional-grade equipment, tools, and products. Even if you tried grooming with the tools, you already have at home, we guarantee you will not achieve the same results as grooming by a professional.
Grooming can intimidate dogs who are unaccustomed to the process. Dogs that have never been groomed during puppyhood may become anxious when they are separated from their owners, and this fear might manifest in different ways than it would at home - think of a trip to the vet! It’s crucial not only for your pup’s comfort but also for safety reasons that you find someone qualified to groom them.
Groomers use high-velocity dryers to remove loose hair from your dog’s coat and prevent matting as clippers to cut the hair evenly. These noises may sound intense to some dogs who are not used to them, making their stay at the groomer one full of anxiety—leading many pups into an offensive situation where they might bite anything in sight, including the groomer! In such cases, your veterinarian may suggest a tranquilizer or grooming under anesthesia. This is more common than you might think.
You can avoid this completely by bringing them in for grooming, starting from when they’re a puppy. That way, they will grow to understand that grooming is a lifestyle and not torture!
