Those focused on your pet
will ask about your pet's temperment, likes and dislikes, allergies, grooming
frequency, and the type of groom you are looking for.

bathed, he or she will typically sit in a crate for hours waiting to dry.
Knowing your pet is right outside your house is comforting for most people.
