5 Tips to Help Your Dog Stay Calm at the Groomer

No one likes going to the groomer. It's a scary place with loud noises, unfamiliar people, and strange smells. It's no wonder our dogs get so anxious! If you're looking to calm your dog before their next grooming appointment, here are a few tips.

Timing your visits

Visit the groomer during off-peak hours. This way, there won't be as many dogs around and your dog won't feel so overwhelmed. Your groomers should be able to explain their down time and sympathize. However, if your dog is too nuts, they may not want to work with you. Any way, the groomer will appreciate not disrupting their business. Many of our retail partners offer grooming.

After you have found your ideal groomer, schedule a regular grooming appointment: Most dogs need to be groomed every 6-8 weeks, so scheduling regular appointments will help your dog get used to the process and make it less stressful for you both.

Visit the groomer's before the appointment

The best way to ensure that your dog has a positive experience at the groomer's is to visit beforehand. This way, your dog can get used to the sights and smells of the groomer's before their appointment.

It is imperative to make sure you choose a groomer that your dog is comfortable with. If they've been to the groomer before and had a bad experience, it's going to be harder to calm them down the next visit.

Bring a favorite toy or treat

Bringing a favorite toy or treat can help your dog feel more comfortable at the groomer's. This can be a great way to keep them calm during the grooming process.

Set up a grooming routine at home

If you want your dog to stay calm at the groomer, it's important to set up a grooming routine at home. This means making sure that your dog is used to being brushed and trimmed on a regular basis. You should also get your dog used to the sound of clippers and scissors. You can do this by grooming your dog in a room where there is background noise such as the TV or radio. Get your dog used to being handled.

Choose the right groomer

Choosing the right groomer can make all the difference in your dog's anxiety levels at the groomer. If you have a nervous or anxious dog, look for a groomer who has experience with handling anxious dogs and make sure to ask lots of questions about their methods. A good groomer will be happy to answer any of your questions and should make you feel comfortable leaving your dog in their care.

Ask for reviews from family and friends or get a recommendation from your favorite pet supply retailer. They may already offer grooming services.
