There are so many questions peoplein Tucson have about mobile dog grooming, so here are some common ones with the answers.
Will the mobile dog groomer need to use my home's electricity or water hose?
Not at all, our grooming van has its own electric generator and a fresh water reservoir, and we have a another tank that holds our gray water that we empty back at our office. On rare occasions we may have to borrow your garden hose to refill the fresh water tank, but this does not happen very often.
Is the water you use to bath the dogs warm or cold?
We always use heated water. Could you imagine being bathed with cold water?
Am I allowed to watch my pet being groomed?
This is a very common question, and we understand why, we're all protective of our pets. Unfortunately the insurance policy we work under won't allow it.
Does frequent bathing dry out my dog's skin?
No it does not. We use a very mild and hypoallergenic shampoo and conditioner. The brands we use are safe for weekly use. In fact, many veterinarians recommend that dogs be bathed at least once a week with a medicated shampoo if they have skin or coat conditions.
Can I provde the shampoo to use during the grooming?
Absolutely. As long as your product is rated pet-safe or prescribed by a veterinarian we can definitely use it.
Why does mobile pet grooming cost more than a regular salon?
The reason is because the value you receive goes far beyond that of a regular salon. The most obvious benefit is that we come to you, which saves you time, money and aggivation. There is also a lot of value in receiving a one-on-one service. Your dog will have its groomer's undivided attention during the appointment. There's no worrying stress from being caged or cage drying. Using a mobile pet groomer also means you don't have to make 2 trips to the salon or plan your whole day around getting your dog groomed. Using a mobile dog groomer means your pet gets hand dried and groomed right on time, with no waiting. Of course the entire van runs on gas, and propane is used to keep the water warm, and those items cost money for us just like everyone else. It's for these good reasons and a few others that the cost of mobile grooming may be a little more, but the treatment, attention and convenience you and your pet will receive give the experience a value you'll want to repeat again and again.
