6 Mobile Pet Groomers in Salt Lake City

For most dogs nowadays, grooming is part of their regular routine. But sometimes regular old life gets in the way of us seeking groomer services as much as we’d like. For other pups, visiting the groomer is their worst nightmare- a loud, stressful environment away from their home and their person.

Lucky for everyone, Salt Lake City and the surrounding areas offer a myriad of DIY self-serve dog washes that you can visit to get your pup spruced up and ready for that dog photo shoot you have planned. 

And if a DIY wash or standard grooming appointment isn’t the right fit, Salt Lake City has several mobile pet groomers for you to check out and hire for your next groom. 

Why Hire A Mobile Pet Groomer? 

Hiring a mobile pet groomer can have many benefits. If your pup doesn’t do well at the groomer or has a hard time with certain parts of grooming, then they may do better in a lower stress environment being given one on one attention. Grooming salons can be loud, busy, and full of unfamiliar sights and smells. Your dog will also likely need to be dropped off and picked up several hours later, likely leading to some additional kennel time.

While traditional groomers are a great option for most, mobile dog groomers typically offer services within a mobile grooming salon that can be parked right in front of your house. Not only does this save you time, but your dog is likely to feel more comfortable with home (and pawrents) in sight.

Unless you have multiple dogs, you can expect that a mobile groomer will be 100% dedicated to your dog only and can provide extra reassurance and attention for nervous pups. If your dog needs a little something extra to take the edge off, we love the hemp options from Salt Lake based Healthy Hemp Pet!


Finding The Best Groomer For Your Dog 

In order to choose the best mobile groomer for your pup, you need to determine what is most important to you. 

Are you looking for a convenient option that makes it so you can still work from home, uninterrupted, while your pup gets a wash? Are you looking for the best price? Maybe you’re looking for a groomer who uses a specific kind of shampoo for dogs with coats similar to yours. 

Whatever you’re seeking, you’ll want to do your due diligence and do thorough research to ensure you know everything you can about the groomers in your area. Don’t be afraid to ask for a referral from friends, family, neighbors, your breeder, and your vet. 

You can also always explore groomer reviews on Google and note any significant positive or negative experiences people have given feedback on. Be sure to scan or search for things that are important to you. When you choose a groomer you’re putting a lot of trust in them to ensure your dog is well taken care of and can achieve the look you’re going for.

Most groomers are on social media these days also, so you’ll likely be able to find photos of their work on Facebook or Instagram. You can easily find out if they have experience with your specific breed, get questions answered, and see before and after pictures.

Lastly, you’ll need to ensure that the groomer travels to your area so check their website for their full coverage map.

What To Expect From A Mobile Groomer Experience

There’s no doubt that a mobile grooming experience is more convenient than taking your pup to an in-shop groomer. Your pup will love the ease of the process and so will you. Here are a few things you should expect: 

  • Services: Most mobile groomers offer the same service you’ll find in a traditional pet spa. In addition to baths, trims, and full grooms, add on services usually include nail trims, eye and ear cleaning, and anal gland expression.

  • Cost: You should expect to pay a premium for the convenience of a mobile grooming experience. The groomer is traveling to you and bringing all their tools with them to provide your pup with a great groom. In the Salt Lake City area you should prepare to pay around $85-$150 per groom, excluding tip.

  • Cage Free: Your dog will (hopefully) appreciate the attention a mobile groomer can provide to them. Plus, your dog won’t have to be kenneled for any part of the grooming process. You’ll have a calmer pup who bounds out back to you after the final spritz of dog cologne. 

  • Speed: Mobile grooms can take just as long as an in-store groom. Keep in mind that most mobile groomers work on their own in a van and want to give your pup a high-quality bath and haircut.  You will, however, save time on driving and your pup will not have to have a lengthy stay on site.

  • Tipping: While not expected but definitely appreciated, consider tipping your groomer like you would when getting your own hair done. When tipping a mobile groomer, tips usually range from 10-20% when using a card or in the range of $10+ if paying with cash. Whatever you decide to tip your groomer, they’ll appreciate the token of a job well done.
