Choosing the right groomer for your pet really can make or break your pet’s experience with any kind of pet services, so it really is important your pet feels comfortable and safe with the groomer you choose.
Here are the 5 best questions you can ask potential groomers when deciding which one is best for your pet.

1. What services do you provide?
Make sure to ask what other services they offer, as you may want to include a nail trimming, ear cleaning, etc. that you can get done all in one visit.
2. May I see your facility?
How does it look? Smell? Is this a place you feel comfortable leaving your dog? And if you can’t visit prior, make sure you read reviews of customers and see if there are any available pictures of the facility.
3. Do you have experience with my dog’s breed?
Certain dog breeds require specific grooming needs so make sure they’ve worked with your dog’s breed. Also ask what the breed standard is for your dog and if they can do the correct cut.
4. How will my dog be housed?
Your dog’s safety is paramount. Make sure you feel comfortable with them staying there, whether it’s a crate or play area.
5. How much will my visit cost?
Beware of hidden fees! Ask upfront what the total cost should amount to and research what the average amount should be to avoid getting over charged.
