When it comes to grooming your dog, you might think giving them a good scrub before heading to the groomer would be a smart move. After all, cleaner pup equals less work for the groomer and saves you money, right? Well, not exactly. There are a few good reasons why your groomer might prefer to handle the bath themselves.

Uniformity: Groomers often have specific methods and products they prefer to use during the grooming process to achieve the best results. By bathing the dog themselves, they can ensure that the shampoo and conditioner used are appropriate for the dog’s coat type and condition, and they can follow their usual grooming routine consistently.

Assessment: It is very important for groomers to assess the condition of the dog’s coat, skin, and overall health before starting the grooming process. Bathing the dog also allows them to closely examine these factors and tailor the grooming session accordingly. They may also need to identify any specific areas that require extra attention, such as mats or skin issues.

Equipment: Pet groomers have access to specialised grooming equipment, such as high-velocity dryers for fluffing out and straightening a curly coat, which may not be available at home. These tools help to achieve a thorough and efficient grooming experience, and the groomer may prefer to use them from start to finish.

Consistency: Groomers have a specific routine they follow to ensure a consistent and high-quality grooming experience for every dog. Allowing the groomer to handle the entire grooming process from start to finish helps maintain this consistency and ensures that the dog receives the best possible care.

Overall, while it’s understandable that owners may want to wash their dogs before grooming to save time or money, it’s important to trust the expertise of the professional groomer and follow their recommendations for the best grooming outcome.
