Let me get started with this post by letting you know why it is so important to ask questions when you select a groomer for your pet styling services…Not all salons use Pet PH Balanced Shampoo!
In the nineties, when I was a new groomer, and bought my little salon, I bought it lock, stock and barrel. The previous groomer, while an EXCELLENT stylist (her grooming was amazing, really!!) was a little old school with her choices of styling products. True Story, I counted several large Costco-sized containers of Ivory Dish soap (shampoo) and several large Costco-sized containers of Fleecy Fabric Softener (conditioner). I took it all home and re-purposed it for it’s original intent and didn’t need to purchase either product for the better part of a year.
Fast Forward, oh, almost twenty years (twenty years October 2016) and the ivory dish soap and fleecy are a long gone, distant memory. Now Shampoo and Conditioners are a science. With the increase of dogs with allergies, sensitivities and skin conditions, I wouldn’t DREAM of using a product like dish soap on your dog with all of the beautiful, Pet PH Balanced shampoos available to professional pet stylists and pet owners alike.
Degreasers. HypoAllergenic. Tar. Oatmeal. Organic. Color Enhancing. Conditioners. Deep Conditioners. Facials. Scrubs. Tearless. Puppy. Cat. Hot Oil. Foot bombs. Medicated. Aloe Vera. Shedding Shampoos. Wire Coat enhancers. Leave in conditioners. Paw Butter. Odor Control. Scented. Non-Scented. Wheat free.
With all of these options on the market, why use dish soap?
As a business owner I budget $450.00/month for shampoo, conditioners and styling products.
Over the last nineteen and a half years I have spent approximately $105,000.00 on shampoo.
Over one hundred thousand dollars.
If I had stuck with Ivory and Fleecy, I would probably have a good chuck of change in my wallet 😉
But I don’t, and I can sleep at night knowing I am making safe, ethical, biodegradable choices for our beloved clientele at A Royal Touch Pooch Parlour.
And remember, when you are choosing a Pet Grooming Salon for your Pet Styling Services, please consider more than just the $. Quality matters. Your Pet’s safety matters. Having confidence in your Pet Stylist using the best quality products for your pet matters.
And quality, safety, and confidence are priceless.
