San Diego Mobile Pet Grooming Blog
One of the most common reasons people call Awesome Doggies Mobile Grooming salon is to help make the grooming process as stress-free as possible. No stressful car ride, no unfamiliar animals, and no leaving the safety of home. But there is so much more to reducing the stressful elements of being groomed. When it comes to making the grooming experience as pleasant and calming as possible, we pay attention to the smallest details, even down to having lavender and chamomile scented towels.
Aromatherapy Applied to Mobile Dog Grooming
Aromatherapy takes oils derived from botanical substances and uses the scent to stimulate parts of the brain and achieve a particular result. A dog’s sense of smell is 1000 times more sensitive than a human’s and they find the scents soothing in the same way humans do. Rescue Remedy is an aromatherapy product we have seen used to good effect. If you are interested in natural methods of calming pets (and people!), Rescue Remedy is definitely worth checking out.
We at Awesome Doggies don’t claim to be practicing aromatherapy, and we don’t give your pets anything other than a good bath and haircut (and flea treatments upon request). But we do incorporate the benefits of calming aromas into our grooming sessions. Lavender and chamomile are well recognized as beneficial for soothing anxiety. Scenting our bath towels with these mild, soothing fragrances is just one more way we signal your pet that everything is going to be okay.
Until they meet us, many pet parents report that their dog or cat is so fearful of grooming that they need to use tranquilizers. Tranquilizers can be effective, but they can also leave the dog feeling drugged or listless for hours, and older pets have a harder time recovering. We feel that you should only tranquilize your pet as a very last resort. Our lavender and chamomile towels, together with mobile service, a private one-on-one session, and other calming techniques that our professional dog groomers employ, make tranquilizers, and their side-effects, unnecessary in most situations.
A Calm Experience is Important
We love pampering your pet, but our spa-like experience is not just about pampering. Helping your pet stay calm is beneficial to their physical and mental well being. Fragile or elderly pets benefit from a calm atmosphere and confident groomers. An atmosphere catered to your pet’s needs develops a strong bond between the groomer and your pet and means more time spent lavishing your dog with love and attention.
We know how much you love your pets and we choose to demonstrate your love by paying attention to the smallest details. Scented towels may seem insignificant, but they are a small touch in a much bigger plan to assure the happiness of your beloved friend.
