Salon:

Salon's can be both high volume and low volume. And while I'm not necessarily speaking of noise level, it does often correlate that way. A high volume salon will see a lot of traffic during their work hours. A low volume salon will see significantly less. A high volume salon is ideal for people who need to get onto the schedule quick. A higher traffic salon will often have multiple groomers and you are less likely to have a grooming appointment canceled due to a groomers personal emergencies. Drop off and pick up times will be aligned with the business's practices, but generally drop off in the morning and either a call when ready or a pick up at the end of the day. Convenience for you as the human is often the prioritized goal here, along with accomplishing the groom. Due to higher volume this allows the price to be reduced for pet owners and efficient for groomers to get done in a timely manner. 

A low volume salon is quite the opposite, it almost always is limited to one or just a few groomers on staff that dedicate grooming appointments straight through as express grooming. This means that they often only accommodate one or a pair of siblings at the same time. Schedules can be booked out very far if they are a popular groomer and advanced planning will be necessary to work with a salon like this. Conveniences is not the goal here, at least not for the human, it is for the cat though. Typically these salons are prioritizing fast and efficient one on one style express grooming environments. Lower traffic does often mean lower noise volume and we know some of our kitty friends just need that extra calming space to be ok. Due to lower volumes this does tend to be a higher cost per groom transaction.

What education and or certifications does this groomer have? or are pursing currently?
While grooming isn't necessarily a regulated field requiring a degree to get into... it is a field that allows you to see a wide variety of talents and skills. Since there are no licensing requirements it is imperative that owners take it in their own hands to research who they are trusting their kitty with!
