As a dog dog I hear all the time. "Why do I cost my dog so much?" I do not pay so much for my own hair cut. Maybe I'll just get by myself! "People never seem to understand what exactly a groomer does that costs that much. Well, I decided to write this article to set the record straight.
We as groomers are not trying to tear you off. We know that your haircut can cost less than your dogs, but there are many reasons why we charge for what we do. First of you you only have hair on the head. If your whole body was covered with hair that needed trimming then your stylist would surely raise his prices. There is really no comparison between your own haircut and what a groomer does for your dog. And when we consider some of the services that your dog's groomer must perform, it is good that there is no comparison between the dog's grooming and our own hair clippings. I seriously doubt that you want someone who expresses your anal glands as I don't think people even have. Even your stylist does not need to give you a sanitary cut and if they do, I will say that it costs more than having your dog prepared.
So now that I have made it clear that your typical groomer is performing certain services far beyond the average man, the scrub can look for some other reason that dog tension can be expensive. Your average dog groomer can charge from $ 35 to $ 100 dollars for a regular grooming depending on the size of your pet and skin condition problems.
So every morning you wake up and at some point you brush or comb your hair. I would be willing to bet that most of you would not leave your house without first doing this. How often do you brush your dog? Matted coats are a common scene on the grooming salon. Some of them may be so bad that they can also be considered negligence or cruelty. In many cases, matting was the problem that the mantle cannot be saved and may have to be shaved completely. This is a time-consuming process that most groomers will charge extra for. If you want to avoid the extra cost of grooming take care of your dog's fur at home by regularly brushing it out. This is not only good for your dog's skin and fur. It's a great way to tie with your pet.
Grooming can be a tough company. I guess you never asked your hairdresser. At least I hope you don't. I also guess you usually sit very still while your stylist cuts your hair. Well, your dog may not always be equally considerate of groomer. Being a groomer takes good patients and the opportunity to guess what your new client can do next. Although this may seem trivial, it is a reason that dog clothing may seem expensive. We never know what a new client will be until we finish their care. We take a chance every day to get bitten., Scratched, urinated on and much more.
So the next time you take your dog to groomer, don't be so quick to complain about the price of your dogs haircut. Groomers work very hard and most or underpaid for what they do. We take good care of your pets and treat them with the same love as we treat our own. If the price is still too steep you may want to start grooming your dog yourself at home. Although I would not be surprised if you drive back to groomer after the first self-drive. I think sometimes until you try yourself you never understand how much work is about making your dog absolutely beautiful.
