I figured I’d throw in a little doodle for you today! That is,Newnan the doodle! Oh Newnan, how I love thee. Considering all the dogs I’ve ever had, you definitely cut the cake with the best personally of all. You’re silly, and sometimes a few fries short of a Happy Meal but you make my life so enjoyable. You’re loving and kind and I swear you smile at me all the time. You love belly stretches and long doodle naps. You are perfect in every way. I think since you’re living your best life ever, you should have the best treatments when it comes to vet visits and grooming sessions. This is why I’m bringing you tips on how to choose the right groomer for yourself and your furry bundles of love today!
1. May I see your facility? How does it look? Most importantly, how does it SMELL?! Is it a clean environment for your pets stay? Does the stay seem friendly? Are you comfortable leaving your precious pet there for the day? Can you see how open the facility is? Do they bring your pets behind closed doors?! If so that could be a red flag for mistreatment!
2. How does your dog react when he gets home for the groomer? Is he shaking? Does he get sick with an upset stomach or diarrhea? Are they shaking their heads a lot? This could be a sign of loss hair in the ears caused by poor grooming, which untimely could lead to ear infections. And most importantly when you bring your pet home does he have any cuts or nicks from his visit. Understandably accidents happen, but deep cuts and sores are unacceptable.
3. Are there any hidden fees when it comes to the prices? You should know exactly what you’re getting before you leave. I love how I can exchange text messages with my groomer. She tells me exactly what she is doing and if she wants to do something extra to my precious Newnan she will warn me in advance.
4. What kind of products do you use? This really doesn’t matter much to me as long as a groomer isn’t dipping Newie in oil or something silly! J However, I DO want my pet to smell extra nice if I’m sending the money to have him looking his best.
5. Do you have experience with my breed? This should probably be close to the number one question after cost and facility. There are many, many different dog breeds that come and go into the door a groomer, but some breeds have special needs and particular style cuts. For Newnan I love less maintenance as possible. I know he is a Labradoodle and is meant to look fluffy! However, I like more of the clean polished poodle look.
6. What kind of training do you have? Does your groomer have years in experience? Have they taken classes? Do they have dogs of their own? Get to know your groomer and their background in their professions.
7.How are the other pets separated while waiting to be groomed?!
I hope you can take these tips into consideration when choosing the right groomer for your lovable guys
