How does House Call Master Grooming Service work?
The groomer brings all equipment required to groom your dog or cat, all you need to provide is somewhere for bathing that has hot and cold water available.
Where does the grooming get done in my home?
This is pretty flexible as to the location in your home, if you are unsure the best place, this can be assessed at the first visit, a place will be chosen that works best for your dog, for you and the groomer. Most times grooming is done in the bathroom or kitchen where lighting is best and cleanup is easier.
Who supplies the grooming equipment?
- Table - The groomer will bring a table if needed, most senior dogs or dogs with high anxiety will be groomed on the floor where they are the least stressed.
- Dryer - The groomer will bring this.
- Shampoos, towels and other equipment - The groomer will bring this too.
Who cleans up the hair?
The groomer will clean the are that was used once the grooming session is complete. This includes a wipe down with a vinegar solution to catch any little hairs left behind. No harsh cleaners are used as these can trigger allergy and other skin reactions for both you and your pet.
I have a pet with special needs how are they handled for grooming?
Pets with special needs such as anxiety, mobility or heart conditions are usually done on the floor and may even require a familiar blanket for smell to keep them calm during their session. The grooming style will chosen that is usually simpler in nature to keep time down so stress is lowered and will allow for easier maintenance as well.
I have a cat that just can't be groomed without biting or scratching, can you help with this?
Cats can have special needs based on their life experiences, personality and training. We do offer several solutions for this including doing grooming under vet supervision ask us about it.
What about Anal Glands?
The anal glands on your dog can be checked during grooming and we can advise if they appear to be needing medical attention, if in any doubt we will recommend seeing a veterinarian. We however can not diagnose or treat anal glands including anal gland expression, as this is a medical procedure under the Veterinary Act, and must be done by a veterinarian in Saskatchewan. Be aware that any groomer who performs anal glad expression is doing so against the law and can be held accountable for any anal gland problems down the road.
How often should my dog be groomed?
This is very dependent on the breed of dog, coat length, texture of coat, as well as health issues. As a general guide toenails should be done every two weeks with slower growing nails being done every four weeks. The rule of thumb on this is if you can hear clicking on the floor as they walk, they are too long and need to be done. Bathing and a hair trim is best done every four weeks for optimum hair and skin health, this however does vary based on coat length and texture in combination with health issues if any. We do not recommend going more than eight weeks between grooming regardless of coat length and texture.
