There are so many questions people in Scottsdale have about mobile dog grooming, so here are some common ones with the answers.
Will the mobile groomer need to use my electricity or water?
No, our grooming van has its own generator and a large fresh water reservoir. On rare occasions we may ask to borrow your garden hose to refill the fresh water tank, but this does not happen very often.
Is the water you use warm or cold?
Goodness, we always use heated water. Could you imagine being bathed with cold water?
Am I allowed to watch while my pet is being groomed?
This is probably one of the most common questions we are asked, and as much as we'd love the company in the van, the insurance policy we work under won't allow it.
Is it true that you can dry out your dog's skin with frequent bathing?
This is not true. 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. Many of our pets are bathed with the shampoo of their pet parent's choosing. 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?
It's not so much that mobile dog grooming costs more, it's the value you receive that makes the service worth more than a trip to a regular salon. Probably the most obvious benefit is that we come to you, saving 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.
