It takes lots of careful handling to properly groom a dog.
Every time a dog leaves a grooming salon, it is a walking advertisement. If you see a dog on the street with a style you like, stop the owner and ask where the dog was groomed.
Call the groomer you are interested in using.
Ask questions, especially if something concerns you.
Did you go to grooming school or apprentice with a professional groomer?
How long have you been grooming?
Do you have much experience with different breeds?
Ask for proper certification.
Check that a groomer is properly educated and certified.
Keep in mind that groomers are usually on an extremely tight schedule. Ask if they would be able to call you back to answer these questions when they have time to talk.
Trust your intuition.
Just by asking around you will be able find answers to most of your questions. Using a groomer for the first time can be a disconcerting experience. If you’ve done some research by asking around and then place your trust in your groomer and then see a good result … then you can pamper yourself, too, like “Fluffy” was pampered.
