Got a question? Maybe we have the answer ready for you!
Yes! We will only have your pup(s) in the Salon with us during your scheduled appointment. We do accept multiple pups from the same household. You won't find 3 pups on our grooming tables at the same time. We do have a crate on site in case an owner is running late, but we rather not use it.
We use high absorbency towels as well as 2 types of dryers. A regular hand held dryer for those pups that are a little more skittish and a high velocity dryer for a quick blow out. We DO NOT use box dries at our salon.
This is a very individual situation. Each pup is unique and has different requirements, but a good guideline is to have your pup in for a clean up every 4-6 weeks to prevent matting, and pad hair regrowth and a good nail trim.
It can be done at home if you have a breed with a short coat. However, if your pup has a longer coat or if you are not confident about grooming them yourself, visit a professional.
Grooming a pet often involves more time and effort than a typical human haircut, as pets may require bathing, nail trimming, ear cleaning, and other services. We have to ensure the safety and comfort of the pup in our care, which adds to the overall cost.
We work with lots of dogs all day long and each client wants slightly different things. So please be as specific as possible. If you just want the nails trimmed and fur trimmed a little then please say so. The more detail the better!
The average pup should have their nails clipped every 3 to 4 weeks, but should be done as often as needed to keep the nail from touching the ground when your dog is standing.
Smooth, short-coated dogs can generally be brushed once every few weeks to remove loose hair. While short, dense-furred dogs should usually be brushed once a week. Long-coated or double-coated dogs must be brushed weekly to prevent mats and to remove tangles.
During a grooming appointment, your dog will typically receive a bath, have their nails trimmed, pads shaved and have their coat brushed and trimmed. It's a good idea to discuss your grooming preferences and any specific concerns with us beforehand.
YES! We have our animal first aid.
