Mobile Dog Grooming FAQs

Features and processes

Mobile grooming refers to a pet grooming service that operates out of a specially equipped vehicle, such as a van or trailer, rather than a fixed location like a grooming salon. In mobile grooming, the groomer travels to the client’s location, typically their home, to provide grooming services for their pets. This setup offers convenience for pet owners who may have busy schedules or pets that are anxious or uncomfortable with traveling to a grooming salon. Mobile grooming services often include bathing, hair trimming, nail clipping, ear cleaning, and other grooming tasks. The groomer brings all necessary equipment and supplies with them in their mobile unit, allowing for a self-contained and efficient grooming experience.

Kontota offers a wide variety of grooming services including full-service baths, nail trimming, nail filing, ear cleaning, ear hair removal, teeth brushing, anal gland expression, shampoo and conditioner, doggie fragrance or cologne, deshedding and brushing, feet, fanny, and face trims, outline trims, shave downs, breed-specific haircuts, and custom style haircuts tailored to the owner’s preference.

Customers report pets playing and jumping after our mobile pet grooming services. Rather than feeling sad and down, pets are energized and optimistic.
