It was under the Second Empire that the first groomers or more precisely the first "shearers" appeared. The fashion of the Poodle in the bourgeoisie at that time has a lot to do with it. This is where the "lion" mowing, still known today, dates. Then, the shearers settled in the street on wooden boxes to carry out a more than superficial grooming which corresponded mainly to a general maintenance of the dog.

Now, it is professionals with specialized equipment who take care of grooming. Indeed, the latter is no longer considered a luxury, but becomes essential for certain breeds.

The first thing you see about a dog is its coat. The animals health is reflected on its coat. It is therefore important to take care of it. However, we must not confuse the toilet, falling under cleanliness and therefore provided daily by the owner, and grooming which refers to aesthetics. The latter makes it possible to highlight the morphology and the character of a breed, but also to erase the flaws so as to give a perfect silhouette. For professionals, good grooming is grooming that cannot be seen, that respects the animal.

In fact, companion dogs rarely need to be groomed (except some breeds like Poodles for example) if not for the personal pleasure of the owner. On the other hand, it turns out to be necessary for competition dogs, examined by the informed eye and trained by a professional. In this circumstance, the animal represents its race and must be perfect.

It is obvious that, to be groomed, the dog must be in good health: no contagious diseases, no dermatoses and up-to-date vaccines (especially the one against rabies, in case of bites).
