Doggy 'Doos Mobile Grooming & Healthy Pet Food Delivery's goal is to develop a life-long relationship with each dog in my care: to earn their trust, help them to enjoy their grooming sessions (:doggy spa days:) and of course make them look and feel their very best!
I allot myself, on average, 2 to 3 hours per full groom. This allows me the time to truly pamper each pet. I can take an extra 10 minutes to give an arthritic dog a salted warm water hydro-massage, apply moisturizing paw balm to “Sampson’s” cracked pads, or discuss the causes and remedies for “Nelly’s” tear stains… If “Bella” needs extra help moving past a grooming phobia, we are able to take our time and slowly work through it.
I know that dogs can feel our energy. I also know that I could push myself and groom 1 or maybe 2 more dogs a day. But I would be rushed, and each pet would feel my tension. The slower approach is very rewarding for me personally, but most importantly my pups are happy.
Doggy 'doos only uses the highest quality grooming shampoos, conditioners and coat sprays on the market. (Les Pooches, Chris Christensen and Iv San Bernards). Each different shampoo and conditioner is customized for each dog’s specific coat type or skin condition. They contain luxurious ingredients such as Royal Jelly, Dead Sea Salts and Evening Primrose oil. Medicated, hypoallergenic, whitening, etc… shampoos and conditioners are always used at no extra charge, because if your dog needs it, he or she should have it!
I also think that -if the dog allows it- bows, scarves and general foo-foo should also be part of any groom. The dogs are usually very excited to wear their doggy-foo... I think it's because they know it will earn them extra cute-points, which means extra attention! ( If you have any special requests for your doggy-foo, just give me a call a day or two before our groom and I’ll accommodate as best I can).
In closing, I think that grooming should be about a lot more than just washing or shaving a dog. It should be about improving the dog's life AND giving him or her style... Groomers should continually educate themselves by regularly attending grooming seminars and conferences. They should understand different coat types and breed standards. They should be able to identify and safely treat different parasites and skin disorders, as well as point out changes in your dog’s body that you may not notice on a day to day basis. They should know exactly what ingredients are in each product they use and what they do. Finally, they should know how to safely handle and respond if, God-forbid, a medical emergency arises.
Your dog will need to be groomed routinely for its entire life… As their groomer, it’s my responsibility to give him or her the most relaxing and enjoyable experience possible!
