For bathing and grooming, we operate on a drop off system. Pets are dropped off at their appointment time, and we call once your babies are clean and ready to go! Our turn around time is generally between 4 and 6 hours, although we do offer an Express Service (see below for more information).
Our drop off times are between 8:00 to 2:00, generally on the hour. Our schedules are not set in stone, so please let us know of any scheduling issues - we will do our best to accommodate! When you book an appointment, let us know if any of your babies will be getting any kind of haircut (even if it's just a little bit!) so we can schedule them with the right people for the job. You are also more than welcome to request a specific groomer. Everyone has their own style, so let us know if you have a preferred groomer.
We offer a few walk-in services for those pups who just need a quick spa treatment!
Our bath service starts with our all-natural, pesticide-free shampoos and conditioners, including a soothing oatmeal, hypoallergenic, and deep cleansing. Feel free to request a shampoo that fits your dog's skin and coat needs. Our bathers are also happy to use any products you bring, such as vet prescribed medicated shampoos. If soaking is needed, we will follow any instructions on the label. Once they are clean, your babies are brushed and dried using professional force dryers. We do not use heated cage dryers, although we do use fan dryers on our kennels. This helps with those dogs who do not tolerate the noise of the dryers.
Our baths are full service packages. They include nail clipping (filing on request), ear cleaning, and anal gland expression at no extra charge.
Finishing touches include cologne and a spiffy bandana!
Haircuts are in addition to the bath package. All the services provided with a bath are included in the haircut price! Prices will vary based on extent of grooming required. When you come in for your appointment, we will assess your dog's coat and help you pick the perfect groom. NOTE: Sometimes, issues such as matting will necessitate shorter lengths or spot shaving. We want to do what's best for your baby!
This add on package is perfect for your heavy shedders! It includes a special shampoo and conditioner that is worked into the fur to help loosen undercoat. They will then get extra drying and extended brushing to remove as much loose hair as possible. We can't stop them from shedding but we can reduce it! The more hair we get out, the less that will be on your couch. Removing dense undercoat also keeps the skin and coat healthy and helps prevent matting.
Our services have a time estimate of 4 to 6 hours. However, sometimes that might not work for your dog or your schedule. If your dog gets stressed easily or has health issues, or you need to have your dog sooner to fit your schedule, we can accommodate you! With our Express Service, your dog will be started right away and will have a guaranteed turn around of 1 to 2 hours.
All grooms include some brushing and dematting. However, for heavily matted or undercoated dogs that require more than what is part of a normal groom, fees will be applied to cover the extra work needed to get your pup looking its best. Fees will be determined based on the severity and volume of matting/undercoat.
That's right - we groom cats!
Don't need a haircut or bath for your kitty cat? Here's what we can do on a walk-in basis:
Your cat will be bathed and dried as much as they will tolerate. Some cats just aren't into being groomed! As long as they stay relatively calm, we will get them clean and brushed out and trim those claws. If needed, cat baths include a sanitary trim and/or spot shaving.
If your cat has gotten matted or you want them to be shaved down, we will take care of that! Haircut options are more limited with cats due to the nature of their skin and coat, but they will feel soft and velvety! Most kitties will get what's called a lion cut. There are some variations on the mane, legs, and tail that you can decide on. Haircuts include a bath if desired.
If your baby is picked up more than 30 minutes after we close at 5:30, there is a fee of $5 per 15 minutes. This is per owner, not per animal, so the fee is the same no matter how many pets you have. If you are going to be late picking up your pets, please let us know as soon as possible.
