What is the difference between mobile grooming and taking
my pet to a groom shop?
There is big difference, convenience for you, less stress for your pet. You don't have to make two trips to the grooming shop. We do everything a groom shop can do and your pet isn't stuck in a cage all day. They receive specialized one on one attention, something a groom shop cannot offer your pet.
How long does it take to groom my pet?
This depends on the condition and size of your pet: about one to two hours. It can be longer if your pet's coat is in bad shape. Far less time than your pet would spend in the typical groom shop.
Do you use warm water?
Yes, we use warm water and climate control. Your pet will never be too cold or hot no matter what the weather is like.
How often should I have my pet groomed?
That depends on what breed you own but generally speaking, every 4 to 12 weeks is recommended depending on the type of coat. The nails should be trimmed at least every four weeks, and ears cleaned once a week for overall health and comfort.
Do I need to schedule an appointment?
Yes, and we recommend setting your appointments regularly so you don't have any problems getting an appointment or a certain day or time you may prefer. We are first come, first serve. Once you become familiar with us you don’t even have to be home, just your pet does.
Why is it more expensive to shave my pet's coat?
It is time consuming. We use a much finer clipper blade, and usually if a pet has to be shaved it’s because it is matted.
Do you express anal glands?
No. If done incorrectly, it can lead to irritation and / or infection. The anal glands express naturally when your pet has a bowel movement. If you believe there is a problem with your pet's anal glands, you should see a veterinarian. As always, if we notice anything unusual, we will bring it to your attention.
What areas do you service?
We service Wayne County, Oakland County, and Macomb County. If you have any questions whether or not we cover your area, give us a call.
Professional pet grooming is a demanding career and it takes years to become skilled.
If you are interested in grooming your own pet, please take some things into consideration. It is very easy to injure your pet without meaning to.
Dogs have a very high pain tolerance that is 4 times greater than ours, and cats have very thin and sensitive skin.
For example, imagine trimming that mat behind your pet's ear when you realize you actually cut part of the ear. It happens all the time.
Our longtime pet groomer recently moved out
of state & recommended Pampered Pet Mobile
to our family. We couldn't be more pleased
with our pet's experience and the quality of service provided by Jamie and company.
Our dogs are more relaxed and comfortable with the grooming process as a result of them being at their home and it is one less stop that I have to make. Jamie is always professional and on time and the dogs always looks great!
I would definitely recommend Pampered Pet Mobile to any of my family or friends.
We have had many of our dogs groomed by Pampered Pet Mobile. From an unruley beagle who needed her nails cut, to a very hairy keeshond, two poodles and a Bichon.
They ALL looked beautiful!! They were very professional and put up with all the different personalities of our dogs. We have used Pampered Pet Mobile for over two years and I have never been happier! The convienence of having the van pull up to your door is worth it! Not having to take a precious dog to a groomer, have them wait in a cage and get nervous is another plus!! They work around your schedule, are on time, and finish their grooming in a very appropriate time frame!!
I am very happy with the service I've received and will continue to use them from now on!! Thank you Pampered Pet Mobile for making my pets feel comfortable, clean and beautiful!!
