Have you ever found your pet gets stressed on car rides? How do they like their nails being done? Most animals are homebodies, and in the wild, that would be called territorial. What does this mean for your domesticated canine or feline friend? That if you take them out of their territory they get stressed. Now don’t get me wrong, lots of dogs love to go on car rides with their person, but that doesn’t mean that they’ll happily let you leave when you drop them off.
When I was grooming in a salon, this meant that a lot of dogs in for their first visit would spend their time whining, or looking for their person. They loved the attention, but you could tell they weren’t completely at ease. Even the most seasoned dogs who were very good for their grooming session, would light up when they saw their person.
Kat’s Grooming specializes in house call grooming services provided in your own home so that your canine or feline friend doesn’t need to come out of their comfort zone. If they are elderly and more fragile, young and not yet fully vaccinated, or have anxiety when they leave the house, my services completely alleviate that concern.
What to Expect
When I arrive at your home, I will bring in my gear. This is different depending on what services your pet requires, but may include my grooming kit, grooming table, dryer, vacuum, and shampoo bag. I’ll set up in an area you feel most comfortable with, but request that it be in a quiet part of the house such as a bathroom to easily wash and dry your pet. We will discuss what length and style of haircut you would like for your furry friend, if there are any health concerns, and services will begin.
Once the services are complete, I will take a quick photo of you pet’s completed groom, release the pet for you to look over, and then clean up the area. Once clean, we will conclude business, and rebook for your next appointment.
