Professional Grooming Services!

Our experienced groomers love to work with all breeds of dogs. We do it all - show trims, pet clips, 'puppy
cuts', and handstripping. Our goal is to provide your pet with a safe grooming experience. We are very
skilled in providing your puppy with his first grooming experience and making it a positive one. We strive to
provide all dogs a relaxed experience, much like your own visit to your favorite salon. Vaccinations are
verified at the time your appointment is booked. New clients will fill out a grooming release form and have a
consultation with the groomer to discuss specific requests and haircut details.

We have two options for grooming, premium and standard appointments. Premium grooms are booked at
$70.00/hour and your dog is started immediately upon arrival and worked on until the grooming is complete.
We will contact you 20-30 minutes before your dog is finished so they can be picked up immediately. Most
premium groom appointments take between 1 - 1.5 hours.

Standard grooms are also available, and are priced based on breed & coat condition. Although less expensive
than a premium groom, standard grooms receive the same services. Dogs booked for a standard groom will
be worked on at the same time as a few other dogs, so the appointment time is longer (generally 3-5 hours.)
Dogs booked for a standard groom need to be comfortable being crated.

Our grooming room is small and cozy, and your dog will not be away from his groomer at any time. Dogs are
dried by a hand dryer on the table rather than in a drying crate; however we do have a cool-air crate dryer
for dogs who are not comfortable being dried by hand. Your dog's safety is our priority and no dog is ever
left unattended in a drying crate, on the table, or in the tub.

To keep your dog comfortable, please park behind the building in our parking lot (free parking) and enter
through our rear entrance - this is the door directly to our grooming room and all dogs must be dropped off
and picked-up here. Our front door entrance is reserved for daycare drop-off and pick-ups only. You're
welcome to visit the front of our store and shop before picking up your dog - you receive 10% off all products
on the day of your dog's grooming appointment!

Handstripping is the art of pulling out coat rather than clipping it. Many breeds will keep the intended
vibrancy, texture, and thickness of their coat when handstripped rather than clipped.
