Please contact us any time if you cannot find an answer to your question. We love sharing information and helping pet parents feel secure, confident, and educated about their pets grooming needs and what to be expected at the groomers, whether it be at Classy Kuts or another salon.
Classy Kuts Dog Salon is able to accommodate the grooming needs of any breed of dog that is 30lbs and under. We are knowledgeable in all breed standard haircuts and can also execute doodle breed specific haircuts as well. Not all dogs are tolerable of the grooming process. To ensure the safety of your dog and our groomers, we can only preform services on dogs that are used to being handled and groomed on a regular basis. The average dog starts getting acquainted with grooming at 14 weeks of age, or right after all their puppy shots are completed. The average time between grooming appointments is 4-8 weeks to ensure proper coat care and maintenance of nails, ears, and skin health.
Dog grooming is a very physical, hands on job. Classy Kuts has a weight limit for our dog clients to ensure that our groomers will stay healthy for their entire career as a dog groomer. Within the course of any giving day, a groomer will lifting an average 150-300 pounds.
There can be a lot of variables to this question.
The grooming process is not as relaxing for your pet as you might think. Some dogs love the attention, the bath, the brushing, while some dogs despise getting washed and combed out. Some dogs see grooming as a part of life and some dogs see grooming as a sort of punishment.
For grooming, dogs are working just like the groomer is.
Standing in the bath tub, standing for the drying process, and standing for the a big portion of the groom can be taxing on your pet especially if they are over weight. When the groomer has to do their nails, shave their paws, trim around their feet, your pet has to be able to balance a large part of that time on three legs. Now their other leg muscles are staying engaged in doing so, so that they do not fall over. Your pet is mentally focused on the groomer just as much as the groomer is focused on your pet. It can be beneficial to your pet that they get adequate breaks in between the grooming process to allow some downtime or time to mentally relax through the stimulation in the grooming salon.
Salons are noisy with the equipment that is needed to be able to execute the job at hand. High velocity dryers, vacuum cleaners, clippers, dogs barking, telephone ringing, ect. can be overly stimulating to your pet. Especially if they are used to living alone with just you and maybe only a TV playing at home.
Dogs also can have separation anxiety when you are leaving them. Sometimes the only time the pet is away from you is when they do go to the groomers and that might only be once every 6-12 weeks for a handful of hours.
The best way to handle a nervous pet is to be confident yourself in leaving your pet in your groomers care. Your dog can feel your energy levels and if you are nervous and upset, your pet will pick that emotion up and in turn will be nervous and scared. The pet looks to their owners for guidance and confidence.
These are just a couple of examples on why your pet may shake at the groomers.
