So many people come thinking this profession is easy and simple, not knowing what awaits them !!! It might surprise someone if they ask you a question of ” what is it that you do for a living?” “Dog Groomer”, I would say, and in many cases you will either be shamed and thumbs down.
A lot of people compare this profession to a trash collector for some reason, the lowest of the low. A profession for losers? Absolutely not, but many people think so. In fact the first thing that comes to mind for many of them is something like this: ” how in hell did he or she ended up doing his? Drugs? Alcohol? Prison? May be a tough and lengthy divorce? ” Nope…..
The answer will surprise you, at least with regards to our great company: Mobile Pet Spa. Some of us could hold B.A. degrees in some of the most prestigious professions in the world, but, somehow ended up grooming dogs and cats. Even some wanna b’s think that grooming deals with many diseases, skin issues, or even blood ( Hell no) . I am a dog groomer, that is it. not a veterinarian, not a magician , or a waste collector. No surgeries or vaccine shots performed in our profession. It requires special training, which we do not possess ( if someone tells you otherwise, ask them for a Certificate, not a copy, the original, or fire them on the spot).
The groomer is the person who provides great care for animals, some of them rescue,( actually a lot of them are) upon request. Mobile Pet Spa (D.B.A.) as you guess correctly provides mobile pet service right to your door. We bath your pet ( or a cat, can you believe it?), do sanitary trims, flea dips non-invasive ear treatments gland expression ( ask Mobile Pet Spa in person about that one, I am telling ya).
“Hello, is this a Local Dog Groomer?” “Yes, how can I help you?” “See I have a doggie full of fleas, and he likes to sleep with my kids, it has been a month already, may be he needs a grooming bath and a flea dip, can you come today?” …….. What? The pet has fleas, sleeps in the same bed with your kids, and you waited two weeks to tell me that ma’am…? Holly Jesus. And it hits me, nope, it’s not a joke, it’s a reality. Fleas, dog, kids, same bed….And we are talking quite wealthy and sometimes well know people, in affluent neighborhoods ( we do serve some specific areas, and we don’t really go to the bunnies anyway). But these things do happen. I have to admit : rare, but it does happen.
Pet groomer is a real profession, where it’s possible to make a good living by doing something you love to do. And it is a pure enjoinment really. We always make sure your pet dealt with the utmost care and respect ( dog’s love socializing and that is Mobile Pet Spa ( a.k.a. your local groomer) does every time, for the last 15 years. ( yep we are the one who survived the essence of time and California mass exodus). So your pet wash near me is still here.
