How long will my pets grooming take?
Our small dogs are here usually 2-3 hours and larger are 3-4 hours. We like to take our time with each pup to ensure their visit at our salon is as stress free and enjoyable as possible!
Should I shave my dog to help shedding?
No. Dogs that have double coats such as Golden Retrievers, Siberian Huskies and Labradors need their extra coat for insulation. Not only from the cold but from the heat. If shaved the coat will most likely not grow back the same and will cause your pup discomfort with anything other than mild weather. We highly recommend not shaving unless pet has health issues, is a senior and cant handle brushing or if your vet recommends it. Ask about our de-shed service.
How often should I get my pet groomed?
We usually say its great to have your pet groomed every 6-8 weeks. Not only for your pets health and hygiene but to keep them on a good schedule and routine as pets adapt very well to structure and routine.
After each pet is finished being groomed, dried, or had their nail trim done each table will be vacuumed, and then cleaned and disinfected with veterinary grade "256 Disinfectant". Areas around grooming tables will be vacuumed after each pet to ensure proper footing in the grooming areas and wiped down to ensure a sanitary environment.
What vaccines do you require?
We do recommend when ever your pet is around other pets having his parvo/distemper shots as well as kennel cough vaccination. Owners will need to verify that their dogs are in good health and have not been ill within the last 30 days.
Can I bring my own shampoo?
Absolutely! If your veterinarian has prescribed or suggested an alternate shampoo rather than our product line, we will gladly use it. Although our top rated Nature's Specialty product line is designed to promote a healthy coat and skin. We have many different shampoos and conditioners to sooth many different types of skin and coat. We have everything from hypo allergenic, Oatmeal shampoo, medicated with tea tree oil to our favorite the "Plum Silky" enriched with silk proteins and aloe! All of our special shampoos are included and no charge to upgrade or change!
When should I bring my new puppy in?
We recommend bringing your puppy in right after his/her last set of puppy shots. Usually around 16 weeks of age.
We offer a "puppy package" for puppies 8 months and under to encourage an early foundation of grooming and handling. During the "puppy package" we introduce them to the bath, brushing/combing, nail trimmers and blow dryer, and trimming of their face, feet, and sanitary area. Since they will be groomed for life we like to make it a happy and positive experience.
