What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
Its not complicated at all. I go by size of the animal and the condition of their coat.
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.
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.
