About this pro
How does your service stand out?
Well for one, I became a pet groomer to help animals and their owners to feel better. I love animals, all animals. Ever since I was born, I have had what alot of people who know me consider it a gift from god. Animals and I relate on a level that most people can't or won't understand. Grooming is a fun way to interact with animals and make them happy and comfortable again. I wouldn't have it any other way. Its nice to see the owner pleased as well.
What do you enjoy about the work you do?
I love to spend time with other people animals, as well as my own. I feel such love from them. And an animal loves you unconditionally, no matter what. They depend on you as a child would. They are actually furry children, who need our love and friendship to be happy and content. I love that I can give them a small piece of paradise, by making them feel and look better. And in turn everyone is happy.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Yes I watch alot of videos, read books with illustrations. Watch alot of animal planet and dog 101. I pet sit alot, so I am constant with different breeds and personalities of dogs.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
Its not complicated at all. I go by size of the animal and the condition of their coat.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always knew I wanted to work with animals, but never thought this would be the direction I would take. But I like to set my own hours and my own pace. And most of all deal with animals in a stress-environment. Where I could be myself and play with the animals and make them feel comfortable with me.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I worked as a pet nurse(vet tech). I ran tests, drew blood, gave vaccines, restrained for examinations. I helped out in emergency situations and took care of alot of animals 7 days a week.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I am more than a pet groomer. I am a pet nurse, animal caretaker and I am man's best friend. To earn an animals trust is a very special thing. If you are looking for someone like me, you need someone who is well rounded. And has experience working with animals and most of all is patient.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Well their is alot that my clients don't realize goes into pet grooming. For one, you have to know how to read an animals behavior and mannerism. This can help avoid some dangerous conflicts, especially if they are frightened. Secondly, I have had training as a veterinary receptionist, technician and worked in kennels, throughout my life. So not only do I know animals behavior and what comes next, but also how to restrain them and treat them if theirs a problem of any sort.
