Dog Grooming Trends of Recent Years
Dog Grooming Trends of Recent Years

These days, taking your dog to the groomer is about so much more than a quick bath or nail trim. Today, pet owners are looking for a dog groomer they can trust with their pet’s skin, coat, nails and other care needs. And when you’re looking to truly spoil your fur baby, there are all kinds of great dog grooming trends worth considering.

Please keep in mind that this blog is for entertainment only, and that our team here at Wags & Whiskers prioritizes the health and safety of your pet above all else while they’re in our care.

Creative Grooming Cuts and Styles

Rather than sticking to your “standard” trim or buzz, why not consider something a little more fun and stylish? In recent years, dog owners have been getting creative with their pup’s cuts and opting for bold styles including mohawks and even mullets. If you have a dog with longer hair (such as a bichon, terrier, or poodle), you’ll have plenty of cut and style options from which to choose that will have your pet turning heads everywhere you go.

A Pet With a Fun Pop of Color

Even if you have a short-haired dog breed and don’t have as many fun options when it comes to cuts and styles, you can always add a pop of color to your pet’s fur for a unique look. Many of today’s modern pet groomers offer both chalk and spray-on color options that will easily wash off and don’t damage your pet’s fur. Some groomers have even taken things up a notch by offering glitter color and even stencil options, which are great for short-haired dogs.

Of course, if this trend seems a little extreme to you, there’s nothing wrong with sticking to your trendy pet standard of decorative bows and bandannas. Adorable!

Indulging “Spa-Like” Pet Treatments

When you really want to treat your dog to a special grooming experience, consider a “spa-like” indulgence, such as a mud face mask, which can help improve the health and shine of your dog’s coat. If you have a dog breed that is notorious for getting those unsightly tear stains, there are even special masks and other products designed to remove them. Just ask the team here at Wags & Whiskers Pet Salon or your local groomer for more information!

Use Natural Grooming Products

Perhaps above all else, dog owners are now more serious than ever about wanting grooming products that are made of natural ingredients. Many dog owners will go out of their way to find a dog groomer who uses natural grooming products with ingredients you can actually recognize and pronounce. After all, don’t we all just want what’s best for our fur babies? These natural products are less likely to cause skin irritation or other adverse reactions, and they’re gentler on the skin and fur overall.

These are just a few of the top dog grooming trends of recent years. If you’ve been looking for dog grooming in Tucson, Sahuarita, Green Valley, or Nogales for your beloved pet, our team at Wags & Whiskers is here to serve you.
