We have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of all the animals in our care,
and so we require that every guest be vaccinated against certain serious, contagious

or two in advance of your visit to ensure maximum protection for
your own pet as well as others. Please read the

factors. Generally, we will need your pet a minimum of two to four
HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN TO PICK UP MY PET?
We can usually give you an estimated time, but we would gladly call
to inform you, as we do not wish your pet to stay any longer than
necessary. Please arrive in a timely manner and avoid arriving
early, as this may excite your pet and make finishing difficult.
WHAT IF NATURE CALLS?
Please, allow your pet to go potty during a brief walk before
arrival. If your pet is here longer than four hours the staff will
take them to go potty.
DO I NEED TO BRING MY PET'S KENNEL FROM HOME?
No, but all dogs must be leashed when coming in to the shop this is
for safety reasons.
CAN I TOUR THE GROOMING SHOP?
Yes, indeed! We recommend a tour before using any pet care facility.
You should always visit to make sure you are comfortable leaving
your pet there. When taking a tour, you should be shown all areas of
the facility and be given a tour without having to make an
appointment. This also gives you the opportunity to ask lots of
questions to make sure their services can meet your pet's needs.
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A FULL GROOM?
Initial hair cut
Bow or Bandanna
WHAT IS INCLUDED WITH A BATH?
CAN I BRING A PICTURE?
Sure. The groomer will discuss your options and try to achieve the same result.
WHAT ARE ANAL GLANDS?
The real answer is “something you
don’t want to deal with at home!” They are the scent sacs right
under a dog’s tail. Some dogs empty them naturally, some do not.
Your groomer can check if they need to be emptied (expressed).
Please let us know if your veterinarian does this or if you do not
want us to express the glands.
WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE THE GROOM WHEN IT IS FINISHED?
Please tell us. We aim to
satisfy. On the occasion where a haircut is not to your
satisfaction, and it is a matter of a little more trimming here or
there, the groomer can do it right away. In some instances, we may
ask you to come again on another day in which case we can start
again. If there are two or more people responsible for the grooming
result, it is important that they first agree on a style before
giving the groomer instructions.
WHY DO YOU CHARGE AN ADDITIONAL FEE FOR BEHAVIORAL ISSUES OR DIFFICULT DOGS?
Only gentle grooming practices
are used. This means that if a dog is being difficult or trying to
bite while being groomed, that a second person is called in to talk
to him and offer reassurance. If it is necessary for the extra
employee to be present for the length of the groom, then there will
be extra fees involved. We are always very honest with our clients
regarding their dog's behavior. We have heard very sad stories about
how difficult dogs are treated at some grooming shops and want to
make sure that does not happen to any of our clients!
DO YOU OFFER SPECIAL CARE FOR OLDER DOGS?
In the bathing process, your dog will receive a massage to ease any pain. During the drying process
we use a gentle air force dryer to not cause any damage to the more
The grooming process for an older
dog will also take slightly longer due to extra needed rest to keep
the grooming process less stressful for your older dog. Also, two
groomers may need to be used to support your dog while they are
being groomed. This process is done to lessen the stress and not
exaggerate any health issues related to having an older dog
DO YOU HAVE PICK-UP AND DELIVERY SERVICES?
