Why Mobile Dog Grooming Is Growing In Popularity?
For your dog to remain healthy and happy, it has to be groomed. This is of greater importance if your dog has a lot of hair. Owners of breeds such as Shih-tzus and Poodles need to ensure that they are regularly groomed.
Irregular grooming could make the dog lose its cuteness and fluff. Constant grooming can take quite some time. It is however of great essence. Mobile grooming has thus been introduced to help many busy dog owners save time.
What Is Mobile Grooming?
Mobile grooming involves a professional pet groomer coming to the dog owner rather than the dog owner bringing their pet to an established salon. This saves the time of many dog owners as they don’t have to drive all the way to a salon, deal with their pet in the car or deal with the stress in grooming salons.
Mobile grooming exists in two different forms. These include: “In-Home,” or “Housecall” grooming and Mobile Van Grooming. These two forms are at the dog owner’s convenience either at home or in the office.
For the “In-Home” Grooming is more like a home service as the professional dog groomer comes along with all the supplies and equipment to the client’s home and performs the groom inside the home. Many dogs in fact enjoy being groomed in a familiar environment as there are no new smells or scary van equipment which may scare the dog. This of course makes grooming easier for both the dog and the groomer.
A bath tub is most times used to bath the dog. The dog owner can however choose to bathe the dog before the professional arrives. This is because most dog owners enjoy being with their dog while grooming takes place.
Mobile Van Grooming
This method of grooming is quite popular. Mobile van grooming simply refers to a “pet salon on wheels” as these vans are equipped with a tub, dryer, grooming table, and all the other equipment that is required to groomed pets. Owners of the vans move from one place to another and are willing to travel to the pet owner’s home or office.
Trailers towed by a truck or van are also used by some groomers. This is because these trailers can stand alone when parked.
Pet groomers who want to be mobile have a variety of van models at their disposal. One of the advantages that mobile van groomers have is that everything they need to groom a pet is right there in their vehicle.
This method is a valuable option for pet owners who want grooming done at their home but performed inside the pet groomer’s van.
Mobile Dog Grooming is indeed beneficial to the dog as well as the pet owner.
