Benefits of mobile pet grooming

Every pet owner knows that grooming plays an important role in the health and happiness of our furry “children.” Some pets need grooming more often than others, requiring us to travel to and from the groomer as often as every four to six weeks. Having a mobile groomer come to your home or office is beneficial in so many ways.
Here are some examples:
• Some pets do not do well in cars. Mobile grooming is performed in a trailer or van that is parked in your driveway within view of your home. No traveling required.
• We live busy lives! A day at the dog spa can last from four to eight hours. Mobile groomers groom one pet at a time. Most grooms are complete in an hour to an hour-and-a-half.
• Washington can be wet, so mobile salons save your car muddy paw prints and hairy seats!
• Health and safety is so important. I mean, we are talking about our furry “children” here. Being groomed in a small environment with no kennels cuts out the risk of such things as kennel cough, fleas and ticks as well as unwanted interaction with other pets.

Jillian Hollingsworth is the owner of the new Dig Mobile Pet Grooming, a mobile pet salon serving the greater Seattle and Eastside. For information, visit diggrooming.com or call 425-444-6619.
