While it might seem more accessible and affordable to groom your dogs at home, there are a number of benefits to seeing a professional groomer that you just won’t see at home. Professional groomers’ knowledge and experience across every aspect of the grooming process, from equipment and products to dog behaviour, is definitely worth it.
Visiting a groomer and grooming your dog at home aren’t mutually exclusive - while there are some things you can do at home to aid the grooming process, frequently visiting a groomer is a great way to ensure your dog’s coat and skin stays healthy.
Here are our top three reasons we think you should bring your dogs to a professional groomer -
1. Experience & Education
Just like how we see experienced hairdressers to cut our hair, you should take your dogs to properly trained groomers. By taking your dog to a professional groomer, you’re leaving them in the hands of a knowledgeable, experienced and trained groomer who knows exactly what they’re doing.
2. Correct Equipment
Odds are, you probably won’t have the same equipment at home as a dog grooming salon has. There are different clippers and scissors for different coat types, as well as shampoos, conditioners and a range of other products. On top of this, they’ve also got the proper basins that make washing your dog much easier, less time consuming and less messy than doing so at home.
3. Controlling your dogs behaviour & Keeping Them Calm
A lot of dogs don’t like the grooming experience - whether it’s one step or the whole process, many dogs might feel anxious or stressed. Professional groomers know exactly how to handle these emotions in dogs, and how to help them feel more relaxed.
