Terminology Used by Pet Groomers

Grooming your canine or feline is often time consuming and can be stressful for both the owner and the pet. Animals hate being held in place or having their movements restricted. Hire a professional service to handle the difficult task. These experts brush out tangled fur, trim hair and wash the animal using environmentally-friendly shampoos. This helps reduce the amount of shedding and leaves your dog or cat smelling and looking great. Learn the terminology used in this field so that you know exactly what to ask when you arrive at the salon.

  • Dewclaw – Dogs have a claw on the side of their foot that often snags on blankets. While it's important to keep all nails trimmed, many people overlook the dewclaw and it curls into the side of the foot. Groomers trim this claw too.
  • Mobile Service – Busy canine or feline owners struggle to find time to take their animal to the kennel or clinic during normal business hours on a weekday. They know the care services are important but work schedules cause conflicts. Mobile services offer care in a convenient site or your home throughout the week and often on weekends.
  • Show Animals – Animals that take part in competitions must look their best. Owners use products that keep a coat shiny and clean. The surface of the coat, ears and tail must be trimmed or clipped to the AKC or Westminster standards or disqualification may occur.
  • Undercoat – Many animals have lower layers of fur or hair called the undercoat. If brushes do not target this area, the undercoat tangles causing mats. Mats create clumps that are uncomfortable to the animal and trap dirt.
