- Word of Mouth
- Other well-groomed dogs, say, if you’re in the park some day and see a well-groomed dog, don’t be afraid to ask the owner
- Ask your vet, as they work locally to you and will then know local groomers from their other clients (similar to word of mouth). Also, a caring and responsible dog groomer should be known to your vet.
