Good, Clean Fun at Petco Grooming #PetcoGrooming #MM

This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and #PetcoGrooming blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.


Even though she's a girl, my boxer, Adrian, is quite gross. I chalk it up to her curious nature, but there are many times I wrinkle up my nose in disgust over some of the things she does. She likes scented things, and it doesn't matter if the scent is pleasant or not to humans. Once she hones in on an interesting scent, she wants it all over her body. She'll rub and roll on the offending object until she's good and covered. Or, see a stink bug? Why not eat it? Ewwww! You can imagine how that leaves her breath. The outdoors is her happy place because it offers an abundance of dirty places she can explore.


I don't know how many times I've said, "Adrian, get out of there!" or "Adrian, stop digging!" By the time we get indoors, she's a very happy, but very stinky and dirty girl. One who is definitely in need of a good washing! Even though she likes dirt and grime, Adrian is a girly girl at heart and loves a good bath. A little pampering is just what this girl needs after a day of roaming and digging in the yard, and when she needs a good scrubbing, we head to Petco Grooming for some TLC.


Adrian is always excited to visit Petco because she knows she's about to be pampered to the fullest. While the in-store grooming does take walk-ins for their wide range of รก la cart services, such as nail trimming, ear-cleaning, and teeth brushing, I do call ahead to schedule a full-service grooming package when it’s time for her to get the works. 


Adrian loves the one-on-one attention she receives from the certified stylist, and I like that the grooming area is clean, well-maintained, and safe for my pet. Each grooming service begins with a 7-Point Pet Care Check: a visual and physical screening that checks for abnormalities in the pet's eyes, ears, teeth, nose, under-side, skin, coat, nails, and pads. Then, the grooming begins.



Our full-service grooming started off with a hair brushing. Since boxers shed a lot, our groomer took extra care to brush out those loose strands.




Up next was a much needed ear cleaning. Rubbing her head in the grass causes a lot of dirt to get caked in those ears! After they were good and clean, the groomer took her to the back for her bath and blow dry. While Adrian was getting her bath, I was able to walk around the store to keep myself occupied. The groomer came to find me in the store once the bath was complete so I could come back and watch the rest of the grooming procedure through the observation windows.



The full-service grooming package includes a haircut, but since boxers are a short haired breed, we skipped over any trims. In light of the 4th of July holiday, we splurged and added on some nail coloring. Red, white, and blue for extra patriotic flare!



We finished off the styling with some watermelon scented fur spritzer, then came home to show off to the rest of the family how Petco Grooming got Adrian all gussied up, fresh as a daisy and thinking twice before digging in the dirt and ruining that sweet manicure. Or so I like to think. Maybe she was plotting to get dirty again so she can head back to Petco Grooming for another round of pampering.

Think your pet would like a little TLC from certified Petco Stylists too? Petco Grooming is conveniently located in more than 1,200 locations, which offer a variety of bathing, hair-cutting, and spa service packages. Adrian gives Petco Grooming 2 paws up!

  8. Dogs will always love being dirty! Good to know you found the perfect place to have your dog groomed. Their facilities are really clean which is awesome and it's good to know that they don't mishandle the dogs like in other groomers! Love those nails too. I'm sure Adrian had a great time as well.

  13. Now this is really something my Oscar could use. He needs a good pampering and even though he is a boy I would still get the red, white, and blue on his nails. It really looks cute. She is indeed gorgeous. Thanks for sharing this giveaway.

  14. Wooow.. That's uber cool! I envy her :). My kids have been wanting to have pets but I guess we have to wait until we're back home :)

  15. Why is it dogs like to roll in something stinky?? So gross... but she sure does clean up nice.

    ReplyDelete
  16. The picture of her in front of the PetCo sign outside is awesome, lolol!! We have a cat, a one-eyed cat we should have named Pirate, lol. He looks pretty old, though I have no idea how old he is...we took him in so he doesn't have a history we know about. He catches the baby lizards that get in the house (poor lizards) and leaves them for me to sweep up. Thanks kitty. That's about as messy as he gets, thank goodness, knock on wood. But he does love a good Petco shopping trip (what animal doesn't?). :)

    Loved your write-up and the red, white and blue nails!

  18. Just so you know the tweet goes 1 or 2 characters over the limit. I shorted it just a bit. I wouldn't mind winning to get a turtle, or snake. Something non furry.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am totally against dressing up our furry family members. Big no to nail polish as well.

  20. Looks like Petco does a great grooming job. I would love to take my dog Max there as there is a Petco about 5 minutes from where I live. I've never had him groomed there before.

  27. Our cat eats and eats then throws up

  28. My cat loves to eat carpet and other strange things of course later get super sick because of it so we obviously have resigned ourselves to never have carpet. We have taken him to the vet because of it but there is nothing wrong with him. just far too curious for his own good.

  29. My cats are like small children I have to follow around moving things from them. Food left on the table by humans is a big no-no.

  45. The stitching of our couch came undone at the top. The cat loves to take the stuffing out and put it all over the house.

    ReplyDelete
  46. In our previous home, the land bordered on a small stream which was definitely polluted because of an old coal mine that had been filled in but was still leaching into that water. It had been cleared of being a 'health' risk, but was very smelly, and formed a small pond during its travels through the land. Rascal, our Black Lab, loved to go out there and circle from a small promontory, into the pond, and back to the promontory, over and over, finally coming home DEFINITELY requiring a thorough bath! Rascal is gone now--he was hit by a car/truck and we think that whoever did it swerved deliberately into the land edge to do it, since he was very good about staying away from the road itself. There is no way to prove it, but there were some suspicious vehicle tracks.
