We all love a good pampering session that leaves us looking and feeling our best, so shouldn't our pets deserve the same? Whether you have a canine or feline friend, or both, pet grooming should not only be for spoiling or for special occasions. In fact, grooming your pet is vital in their health and well-being which can also improve their lifespan. For certain dog breeds, regular washes, trimmed fur and clipped toe nails are essential. Whether your pet loves to roll around in mud or has fur that's completely unmanageable, knowing the cost of each service you may have to face ahead of time can certainly bring relief.

How to hire a Pet Groomer


Unlike other professions such as electricians or builders, pet groomers don't have to possess any licences to undertake work on your furry friend. Instead, there are certificates that one can obtain in pet grooming or companion animal services.

Check for reviews

Whilst a licence is not required for the groomer to carry out the work, you can check for positive reviews from past customers or even photos of past work. This will determine whether you think they will be the right fit for your pooch's needs.

Where to groom

Determine whether you will need to take your pet to the groomer or whether they have a mobile grooming business that can come to you. This will have an impact on the total cost of the groom.

Include relevant information

Always provide as much information as possible about your job to get the most accurate quote. Relevant information should include the size of the pets, how many pets, the type of services you require and how often you'd like for the grooming to take place.


While it's not essential they possess these, having them, shows the pet groomer has the relevant education and background knowledge.
