Although many dog owners prefer to groom their dogs on their own, having your dog professionally groomed will save you time and energy. It takes a lot of care and patience to groom a dog, especially a fluffy one, a puppy, or one with behavioral issues. A professional grooming session typically consists of the dog being brushed, bathed and dried, as well as trimmed or clipped. The groomer brushes or combs out mats before the bath, making it easier to lather the dog with shampoo.
They clean the dog’s ears to remove buildup and to check for signs of infection. When the dog’s coat has dried, he will be trimmed, clipped, or shaved, if needed or requested. Be sure to clearly communicate your requests or concerns to your groomer, and your precious pooch will look great by the time he’s done. Groomers trim most dogs over the eyes, at the tips of the ears, and on the bottoms of the feet. They cut the dog’s nails to a comfortable length, as long nails can become painful for a dog, especially when he’s walking. Groomers will also brush your dog’s teeth with a dog-specific toothpaste.
They Have the Right Tools
You certainly don’t want to use your own scissors and electric razors to groom your dog. Professional groomers have all the right tools to get your dog looking his best, from different kinds of clippers to great techniques to handle your furry friend. They are equipped with shampoos for dogs with skin allergies, irritations, fleas and ticks, and so on. Groomers also know how to groom breed show cuts as well, which definitely requires very precise attention to detail.

Dog-grooming has become a lifestyle as dogs have become a part of the Indian family. In India, it is so easy to groom a dog at home and with great convenience. It is as easy as booking an Uber or ordering a pizza from Dominos. You just need to book an appointment for grooming using your GoPetting Android App, choose the type of bath, haircut with which you want to pamper your pet.

The best part is, you don’t have to take your pet down to the grooming van, you can just be home, do your own work, watch the TV, teach your child, finish your office work, get ready for a movie and your pet will arrive completely groomed in about an hour and walk out from your washroom kiss ready.
Dogs that are older or become anxious or aggressive when you try to groom them may need to be sedated while being groomed–something that can’t be done at home, but a veterinarian and/or groomer can do. Sedation is the last option you have to rely on as it is very harmful for your pet’s health. When handling your dog, your groomer may also notice a concerning injury or lump that you may not have noticed. If you yourself have a condition such as back pain or arthritis, rest assured professional grooming will prevent you from having to do excessive lifting and handling of your dog.
They Take Care of the Yucky Stuff
Cleaning anal glands, shampooing a muddy or skunked dog, and removing fleas and ticks are not the most pleasant things to take care of, but come with the price of owning a dog. A professional groomer knows how to take care of and clean all of these seemingly yucky things, and more.
How Often Should I Have My Dog Groomed?
Although it depends mostly on the breed, hair length, and type of coat, regular grooming should be done about once a month. For young puppies and dogs who have never been groomed, more frequent grooming or brushing at home should be done to get the dog used to being handled and to avoid grooming issues into adulthood. This is called desensitization, and can be done for several other reasons.
What Should I Do in Between Grooming(s)?
Brushing your dog once a week or so will help with shedding and prevent any mats from forming in your dog’s coat. A buildup of mats can become painful for your dog. If your groomer can’t get them out, your dog might have to be completely shaved down.
