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.

All grooming appointments are booked to ensure your dog is groomed from start-to-finish - his appointment
should take between one to three hours. We strive to provide your dog with 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 specifics.

Once your dog arrives, he is started promptly and worked on until he is finished. 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 - it's a bright purple door. 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.
