Groomers who wear blouses and blue jeans may tend to be comfortable but do not really look very professional. Some groomers wear scrubs to make them more professional, but a much better look should wear scrub pants and a nice blouse that reflects the personality of the groomer, and what they think of pets. Like a blouse that says "I love dogs", or "cats are my favorite animals", or it could have comb prints and brushes.

A nice leather apron will also help when handling pets of any kind. When working with pets, there is always a chance of catching an infection or getting covered with leaks, or even lice, so the best way to protect yourself is to wear the right kind of clothes.
Another very important element of the pet uniform to consider is the type of shoes that the groomer must wear. They should be comfortable enough to be able to wear all day, because most of the time, the groomer will spend more time on their feet than sitting. The shoes must be durable and non-slip. There are shoes that are sold that are specially designed for this type of work, I mean, for people who do a lot of things standing up. They should not be made of leather or canvas because some animals may not be able to control themselves and have an accident on your shoes that may stain them. The best type of shoes to adapt to this type of work are called "Crocs", they are made with rubber, instead of canvas or leather. The shoes may not be washable, but must be disinfected daily before and after working hours to ensure that no unwanted little insect will come home and possibly infect your own animals.
Part of the pet groomer uniforms that should not be purchased are a pair of gloves. Some groomers only use regular latex gloves and change them very often depending on what they do. However, a good pair of Livingtex Gloves Living Gloves would be more satisfying for all the work that a groomer will perform during a day, and they can be disinfected after grooming an animal and before you go home.

Remember that your uniform reflects a person's personality towards his work and makes a good impression for his clients.
