All You Need to Know About Mobile Grooming Services
Mobile grooming services are the new wave of pet care. Gone are the days where people would have to leave their pets at home for hours on end, or take them to a veterinarian’s office, just to get a trim. Now there is an entire industry catering specifically to those who find it difficult or inconvenient to go anywhere with their pets.
Grooming services can be very expensive, especially if one is paying for a higher level of care for a dog or cat. There are many cheap grooming services out there, but some of them may not be the best option. New customers should do some research into local companies and groomers to make sure they are getting their money’s worth.
What is included in mobile grooming services?
Mobile grooming will usually consist of a few things: washing the pet, vacuuming any loose hair from the coat, trimming the hair around the pads and in between toes (this is called “docking”), and sometimes ear cleaning. All these services can be included in one visit or spread out over multiple appointments.
How much does mobile grooming cost?
The cost of mobile grooming services can vary from place to place. The average that one might pay for a full groom is around $65-$125 for a medium sized dog, and around $25-$65 for a small cat or small dog. Having a very large dog or a very small dog can affect the price as well. Large dogs will require more time and energy during the bathing process, while small dogs might need more trimming than an average sized canine. Sometimes, these prices may be discounted if customers are paying up front for multiple appointments.
What are the benefits of mobile grooming?
The reasons people tend to select mobile grooming over other options include: convenience, flexibility in appointment scheduling, and low cost. If you live in a rural area, it can be difficult to find a groomer who is willing to travel far distances. And if you don’t have a car, it may also be difficult to bring your pet into town. Mobile grooming services solve these problems by coming directly to the customer’s door.
Many groomers are open on weekends and in the evenings, so finding an appointment is never hard. Also, there are many companies that offer “one-time” or “once monthly” appointments for customers that need different days or times for each visit. The customer can still have a fixed time for each appointment and have a list of services they want their pet groomed or bathed on. Grooming services also offer flexible appointment times, so if the client has a dog that is very active in the morning, they can schedule their grooming session during the evening to save time. Customers may also prefer mobile grooming services because they do not have to leave home to take their pet in for appointments.
How often should my pet be groomed?
Depending on individual dogs and cats, it is best to have your pet checked at least once every six months for all types of animals. A vet may call this “annual exams. Some vets may recommend grooming more often than this, but it is recommended that people consult with their vet to see if their dog or cat needs additional grooming. Generally, once a year is enough for most dogs and cats.
