Pros and Cons of Mobile Dog Grooming
As with all things in life, no one solution can satisfy every needs and wants. Mobile dog grooming can have its advantage and disadvantage depending on you and your dog’s need and situation. If you’re looking for a professional groomer for your pet dog, here are the pros and cons of getting your pet groomed at home.
Pros of Mobile Dog Grooming
One of the major benefits of mobile grooming is convenience to you and your pet. By having the groomer coming over to you and bringing the services over, you can avoid getting your pet(s) to a grooming facility away from the comfort of your home.
If you are like majority of the population where applying for time off work could prove impossible at time, you will appreciate the flexibility that mobile dog groomers offers in terms of timing. Check with them and you will likely to able to schedule for your dog groomer to come over early in the morning, late night or even for weekend appointments which most traditional pet salons don’t.
Animals, like humans, can experience separation anxiety when you leave them at a groomer or become anxious or car sick on the way there. With mobile grooming services, a groomer arriving at your door step can provide a less stressful experience for your pet dog as he / she will be in a familiar and safe location, home.
No other pets
Pets can become agitated or anxious when they are in close proximity with other animals. With mobile grooming, your pet can enjoy his / her exclusive grooming done without the added distraction from having to deal with other animals at the salon and getting undivided attention from his / her groomer.
With a mobile dog groomer coming over, you can rest assure that your pet is the only animal in the salon and worry less about possible contamination from other animals, disease spreading, insects and parasites.
Faster grooming time
It is no longer necessary for you to spend 8 hours in a grooming shop, waiting while other dogs are being groomed. Your dog is the mobile groomer’s only customer for that time slot and receive exclusive attention during his / her entire grooming appointment.
Dogs with special needs (older dogs, car sickness, mobility disabilities or dogs that are already ill) could use the help of a mobile dog groomer as they may not handle the stress of a trip to the groomer or pet salon well.
