Are you tired of your pet groomer’s hefty charges?
Does your pet’s groomer ask for a lot of money just for a bit of haircut and maintenance? Well, then you’ve come to the right place. No, we’re not giving out discount coupons, but we are going to expose the pet grooming industry for what it truly is— A place where the groomer has to do quadruple of what your hairdresser does.
You see, a friendly neighbourhood groomer was so irritated of people questioning their rates, they put up a sign listing the top ten reasons why they are not overcharging; contrary to what their customers think. The most annoying part is when their customers compare their services to that of a hairdresser for humans. As if that’s logical reasoning! Here are the ten reasons, briefly explained, so that you never have to be the reason why your pet comes back with a lousy fur-style from an angry groomer.
#10 Your hairdresser doesn’t wash and clean your rear end.
We really hope they don’t. But pet groomers have to take care of the whole package and clean every speck off your pooch.
#9 You don’t go eight weeks without washing or brushing your hair.
Again, we really hope you don’t. However, you probably don’t clean your pet thoroughly every day. The amount of fun your dog has requires special cleaning services that only a groomer provides and your barber never has to worry about it.
#8 Your hairdresser doesn’t give you a sanitary trim.
If you ask your hairdresser to trim the area down below, they’d either chase you off or ask for a much higher price. So, why shouldn’t the pet groomer charge more?
#7 Your hairdresser doesn’t clean your ears.
Your ears are your problem, and you probably take good care of it. Have you tried cleaning your pet’s ear? The biggest challenge is to keep them still and then to remain patient while cleaning. Your groomer is promising a good job at a bit steeper price, so does that make sense?
#6 Your hairdresser doesn’t remove the boogers from your eyes.
Dogs with leaky tear ducts often end up with eye boogers that look nasty and even if you try to remove them by yourself, it’s a risky job. Let the pros do it and don’t complain about paying higher!
#5 You sit still for your hairdresser.
Unless you’re a two-year-old, your hairdresser must love servicing you and having a good time with your hair. A pet groomer has to service someone who has the mental capacity similar to that of a two-year-old baby. More effort for more pay, right?
#4 Your haircut doesn’t include a manicure or pedicure.
If you go to your hairdresser, you won’t get anything more than a haircut at the price of a haircut. Maybe if they’re nice they would give you a free head massage. For more grooming, however, you have to pay higher. Now, your pet groomer does everything at the price they ask for. There’s no questioning that.
#3 Your hairdresser only washes and cuts the hair on your head.
The armpits, chest, arms, legs, and in between, are not the places concerning your hairdresser. Your pet’s groomer is concerned with all of that.
#2 You don’t bite or scratch your hairdresser.
Not anymore, we hope. As we grew up, we realised that getting a haircut is necessary to maintain a good look. Your dogs don’t give a heck about good looks. So when the groomer starts snipping, they get scared and may also scratch or bite them. With such dangers involved in the job, it’s only logical to charge more than your hairdresser.
#1 The likelihood of you pooping on your hairdresser is pretty slim.
The chances are very slim, but not impossible. However, with your doggo, the chances are much higher. Keep in mind that your pet groomer does not complain when that happens as they know it’s a part of what they do. You’ll feel like paying them even more.
Behold! The list that pet groomers everywhere would like you to see.
This list managed to get a lot of reactions from the mass.
A Very Good Reason
The next time you feel like your pet’s groomer is ripping you off, remember that their job can’t be compared to your hairdresser’s.
