Mobile dog grooming has gained popularity in recent years, but if you’ve never used a mobile service before, you may be wondering: How does mobile dog grooming even work? And what’s the upside of using this type of service over a traditional pet salon?
While some benefits like convenience are obvious, there are other advantages to consider.
Here are four reasons you should give mobile dog grooming a try:
- Stress-Free Environment. Let’s face it, the grooming process can be stressful for any pet, whether they’re young, old, or just a little anxious. Traveling to the salon, waiting in a crate or cage, being surrounded by loud noises and unfamiliar people — all of these things can induce fear and lead to an unpleasant experience for your pup. When you choose mobile grooming, your pet is groomed just steps from the comfort of their home in a cage-free, quiet environment. This one-on-one setup means the groomer can get his or her work done faster and your dog will feel safer in the process.
- Special Attention for Older Pets. Elderly dogs often need a little extra care during the grooming process. Maybe they have a hard time standing for long periods of time or they’ve developed a chronic health condition over the years. Whatever their unique needs may be, mobile dog grooming allows for a higher level of individual attention. Plus, over time, you’ll form a relationship with your groomer, so you can talk to them about your aging pet and request specific accommodations.
- No Exposure to Other Pets — or People. As we all work to limit our exposure to those around us, mobile grooming is a safe option for you and your dog.. Instead of visiting a salon where you’ll most likely have to interact with other people and pets, your mobile groomer can pick your dog up from your home with zero face-to-face interaction. Plus, all payment is taken using our contact-less billing system. Another advantage: Your dog won’t be exposed to other unvaccinated pets, fleas, ticks, and possible contagious conditions — all risks of a traditional pet salon.
- Time Savings & Easy Transitions. Mobile dog grooming requires no time commitment on your part. With curbside service, you don’t have to stop your day to get your dog into the car (a difficult task for some pups) and shuttle them to and from the groomer. With a traditional pet salon, you’re typically given a 4–5 hour appointment time. With a mobile service, there’s no sitting around while another dog is being groomed. Each dog is immediately washed, conditioned, brushed, and blow-dried, so they can be in and out within 1-2 hours.
Once you’ve established a trusting relationship with your mobile groomer, most services won’t even require that you be there for pick-up and drop-off. You can coordinate access to your home, so your dog can be groomed while you’re at work, out running errands, and enjoying your day.
