Hygiene requirements for dogs vary between breeds and lifestyles. In general, different dogs have different needs. Some dogs require frequent brushing and grooming, while others need only minimal grooming services. You may be wondering whether you can provide grooming for your dog or whether professional grooming is a better choice. Consider the following factors to help you make your decision.
Time and Money
It can take up a lot of your time to groom your dog, and if you have more than one dog, this time commitment multiplies with each one â€“ not to mention cleaning up the bathroom afterwards. Professional groomers are convenient and will save you a significant amount of time in the long run. Instead of spending your precious time bathing, drying, brushing, and grooming your dog, just drop them off at the groomer’s and pick them up later clean, soft, shiny, and trimmed. A grooming service can free up more time in your schedule to do the fun stuff, like playing with your dog or getting other things done.
Some pet owners feel that the expense of professional grooming is unnecessary, but in fact, professional dog grooming in Morayfield is quite affordable. Being able to trust a professional who knows what your dog needs based on their breed, size, and type of coat is well worth it. Grooming is not an expense that reoccurs frequently; many dogs can go two months or more (depending on their breed) before needing to return to the groomer.
Experience and Education
Keep in mind that professional groomers possess the training and skills required to groom different types of dogs. Many dogs dislike grooming, and this stress can cause them to behave in unpredictable ways. They might resist getting into the bathtub or constantly try to jump out. Some will not stand still for drying. If your dog hates bathing, especially if they are a large, strong dog, it may be challenging for you to handle this at home.
Trimming nails can also be a disagreeable activity for many dogs. Some dogs won’t let their owners anywhere near their nails, fearful of what might happen. One bad experience with nail clipping can turn your dog off to it for life, so this is best handled by a professional. Well-meaning pet owners often make other mistakes related to grooming as well, such as getting a dog’s bathwater too hot or cold, using a high-pressure shower sprayer (which can be scary), using a harsh shampoo, getting soap into their eyes or ears, or brushing incorrectly.
