Life just wouldn’t be the same without our dogs. They’re our best friends, part of the family and give great comfort in any situation. They also love to run around, play and get dirty – really, really dirty. Just like us, our furry friends need grooming – especially those with fur that gets matted or those that just need a wash and a trim to look extra beautiful!
According to Dr. Max Spicer, who originally hails from England and is now the managing partner and senior veterinary surgeon at The Veterinary Hospital in Dubai, there are major health benefits to dog grooming for your sweet pooch whom you simply adore! These health benefits include:
A professional groomer is experienced enough to know if your dog has parasites or fleas (that you may be unaware of) immediately. Fleas don’t survive the tub and ticks are removed while your dog is drying.
If your dog defecates normally with hard stools, the anal glands will become empty. Though, when your dog’s stools are too soft and runny, they may not give enough pressure when defecating. This often results in glands failing to empty. This is not a healthy situation for your dog. Your dog groomer can help empty the glands.
Think about this – how great do you feel if your hair is unkept and frizzy with knots that could pass for a bird’s nest or nails that are too long, split and unshapely? You wouldn’t step out of the house without first washing yourself and most of the time you even spray on a good perfume.
Now, imagine your sweet family dog in the same situation. A dog’s sense of smell is much greater than our own, so if our dogs smell bad to us, imagine how bad they smell to themselves! They can become depressed or even irritable. That’s where pet grooming comes in to save the day!
Time and Stress
When you take your dog to a salon, you often have to wait extra hours before he or she is even washed as the salon might be so busy. That means it takes a big chunk out of your day and, more importantly, your dog has to wait in an unfamiliar environment for hours. This can cause major stress for your dog.
An Unfamiliar Groomer
When your dog is being groomed at a salon, they may not get the same groomer. There is no trust between your dog and the groomer – there is no familiarity. The groomer may also not treat your dog with the same gentle and loving care you do – especially if you are not there to watch them being groomed.
Once your dog is groomed at a salon, they are usually put into a cage – a cage that is not cleaned out every hour. So, your dog will not only be unhappy that he is in a cage and feel trapped but will also not come out as clean as you would have liked.
Although your dog will leave a salon groomed, the whole experience is very traumatic for him or her.
Your dog loves and trusts you with all his heart. When you let someone onto your property, your dog usually assumes that the person you let in is trustworthy and safe to be around. You will be there, so he knows he is safe, and nobody wants to take him away, put him in a cage or be rough with him.
Once your dog experiences his first dog grooming with a mobile dog groomer, he realizes that a lot of love, gentle care and attention was given by that person. When grooming takes place regularly by that same person, your dog will psychologically know that person equals love and care. They know that afterwards they will look and feel fresh and beautiful and smell great because of that particular person! Your mobile dog groomer will become your dog’s friend.
Ease & Comfort
You are so busy with your day. Perhaps you run a very successful business and are always on the go or possibly have a family with kids that always need your attention. Isn’t it an absolute pleasure knowing your mobile groomer will come to your house, in a time that suits you, bringing all his own equipment? That way you can get on with your day while your mobile groomer takes care of your beloved dog. It is pet grooming at its best!
