4 Tips To Adjust Your Pet To A New Groomer

Not only will grooming trips help keep your furry friend look dandy, regular grooming sessions will ensure the general well-being of your pet. While these grooming should be an enjoyable process, unfamiliar or a change in environments may cause your pet some discomfort. If you’re looking to switch to a new groomer, here are some tips to help your pet adjust to its new environment.

Make pre-visits

Dogs are likely to be anxious during their first visit to a vet or a groomer’s. Therefore, it is advisable to embark on several pre-visits with your pet, to familiarise it with the new environment. You can also take the opportunity to meet your pet’s groomers and let them know of your pet’s needs. On the other hand, rewarding your furry friends for good behaviour during grooming sessions can also help to mitigate potential feelings of anxiety.

Exercise your pets

Most pets, or rather dogs, have an undying passion for walks. In addition to a happy pet, walks will help minimise the nervousness in your pet before their visit to the groomer’s. A slightly worn out pet will also reduce the risk of them scratching/biting the groomer.

Invest in a professional pet groomer

Regardless of the situation, an experienced and trained groomer will be able to calm and make your furry friend comfortable. So, when embarking on a search for a new groomer, to engage a professional such that he/she will be better able to cater to your pet’s needs.

Make use of natural tonics and aromatherapy

Tonics provide a quick and safe way of calming your canine friend during a visit to the grooming shop. Most retail stores and online pet shops in Singapore offer a wide range of non-toxic tonics that can help lower your dog’s anxiety levels during grooming sessions. Due to their inedible nature, do avoid having your pet lick where the tonics are applied.

While it is natural for dogs to feel nervous during their visit to a groomer’s, a professional pet groomer will be capable of mitigating these sentiments. So whether you’ve decided on a pet grooming establishment, pet boarding services or mobile pet grooming in Singapore, a trained professional is highly recommended. On the other hand, home grooming sessions may also be carried out, but only if you and your pet are completely comfortable.
