The following tips will help you and your dog relax a little more:
1. Keep your dog on her regular diet. Stress can cause gastro-intestinal issues, no need to exacerbate that by switching up her food!
2. Set a good example by remaining calm and collected! Your dog is super sensitive to your feelings and emotions. Allow plenty of time when you drop your pet off so that you aren’t rushed. Say a quick goodbye and leave knowing you have chosen a great grooming salon and the staff will take good care of your pet.
3. Keep in mind that regardless of the pet grooming salon you choose, and how well adjusted and outgoing your pet is, your pet may experience a certain level of stress. Remind yourself that you’ve done a great job choosing the perfect groomer. Then try to relax a little yourself. Just think how beautiful he/she is going to look after a day of pampering!
