How-To: Finding the Perfect Pet Groomer

Grooming is an unavoidable aspect of a pet and pawrent’s life. While you can bathe and brush your furry friend in the comfort of your home, there are certain grooming aspects, such as inspecting your pet for potential signs of health hazards, which require the expertise of a professional.

However, finding a trusted professional groomer can be a challenging task. It’s crucial that the groomer is one both your pet and you can trust, especially as his/her expertise will affect your pet’s sentiments towards grooming sessions. Listed below are 4 tips on searching for the perfect pet groomer.

Local Pet Stores How-To: Finding the Perfect Pet Groomer

There’s a chance that your favourite Singapore pet shop offers grooming services. If there’s a particular pet shop that you frequent, you may always check with them on the availability of pet grooming services.

Otherwise, you can also ask them for recommendations of groomers that they know of or work with. Apart from approaching your local pet store, vets in Singapore and fellow pawrents are also reliable sources for recommendations.

Take the Search Online

One of the more common ways of searching for pet groomers is to go online. Make a list of the groomers near and/or around your neighbourhood. This allows you to discover new groomers and narrow down your options without physically visiting the stores.

You may want to take some time going through the reviews from their existing clients as this will give you a sense of what you can expect for your pets as well and allows you to discover and be aware of the groomer’s credentials.

Do Your Research

Once you’ve narrowed down your list, don’t be afraid to give them a quick call and inquire about their prices, services and guidelines if any. It’s also important to ask them how they manage pets who have never been professionally groomed or pets with special needs. This allows you to make a proper and well-informed decision, especially if your pet requires extra attention.

Tour the Facility

Additionally, take the time to drop by the facility before signing up with the groomer. This is important as it allows you to have a first-hand observation of how the groomers operate, the the amenities and space available for your pet. By making the trip in person, it also allows you to observe the way they work as well as take stock of their workspace.

Dropping by the pet store or grooming facility with your pet will also allow it to recognise and accustom itself to the new environment, which may smoothen the path when the time comes to preparing your pet for its first grooming session.

Ultimately, it’s important to find a groomer whom you and your furry friend can trust.
