Pamper Your Pet

Pet Grooming

Our groomer offers full service, all-breed dog grooming and also some cat grooming. All dogs are groomed to breed standard and/or owner’s specifications. Our groomer can help an owner decide which type of trim will suit their pet’s body style and coat texture.

Each Dog Will Receive…

  • Blow out/brush out/prep prior to bathing
  • Two baths (to ensure a squeaky clean pet!)
  • Blow drying by hand & occasional crate drying
  • Standardized trimming (certain breeds only)
  • Paw pads shaved and feet trimmed (certain breeds only)
  • Breeds not needing trimming or shaving will be heavily de-shedded!
  • Nail trimming or nail grinding (grinding done only when requested)
  • Ear cleaning and ear hair removal (if necessary)
  • Anal gland expression (if necessary)

Our groomer does NOT do hand-stripping.

Our Feline Friends…

Cats that need to be shaved are usually sedated (under a veterinarian’s or veterinary technician’s supervision) to avoid undue stress. Sedated cats do not generally get bathed; a waterless shampoo is used, as bathing is only safe when the pet is awake. Cats that are not matted and are not fractious can be bathed and blown dry without sedation. All cats will receive nail trimming upon request.

Recommended Upkeep

Our groomer prefers to see most of her clients on a 6-8 week basis. This ensures the pet is maintained properly in the desired trim. Waiting too long between grooms for most breeds can result in matting and possibly the need to be shaved. If minor matting occurs, our groomer may be able to de-matt as long as the stress and well-being of the pet is not at risk… AND if the pet can tolerate the process without being a hazard to itself or the groomer.

Pricing

Please contact our groomer for prices as these are set on an individual basis, dependent upon the work involved with grooming a particular pet.
