Availability

We are currently available by appointment only for full-service grooming and nail trims for both cats and dogs.  Please note we are closed on holiday weekends and between Christmas and the New Year.  In addition to offering cat grooming throughout the week, we also offer quiet cat times for those felines that need a little bit calmer environment.  Please let us know if your kitty needs this and we will schedule accordingly.

Due to the fact that the grooming industry is being absolutely overwhelmed with demand for services and the fact that certified groomers are few and far between make sure you plan ahead to ensure your pet is able to get the care and attention they need.  Many people are choosing to book the whole year in advance and we encourage you to think ahead!  Especially when it comes to planning for busy seasonal times for grooming spring, summer and Christmas.

How Often Should My Pet Be Professionally Groomed?

The truth is it can be different for each pet.  It also varies on the amount of grooming and care you are able to provide at home.  Ideally, your pet should be groomed regularly to help prevent the build-up of danders, oils, saliva, debris, dirt, dead hair and matting.  As pets age, they move less and compact the coat from laying down more this causes the coat to form matting much more quickly, and hence increases the grooming frequency.

Here are the ideal groom intervals that minimize the grooming you need to do at home or for those pets that don't tolerate grooming at home.

  • Long Haired pets or nail trims 2-4 weeks

  • Fluffy Lengths or elderly pets 4-6 weeks

  • Shedding Breeds 4-8 weeks

  • Short lengths 6-8 weeks

  • Cats 4-8 weeks

Payment Options

Additional charges may apply if

We LOVE spending good quality grooming time with your pet, but sometimes extra effort and or extra time spend means extra expenses for the groomer.

  • You want to maintain a longer length of coat

  • Your pet has fleas or other pests that require us to do a special wash and treat our facility

  • Your pet has matting or excessive dead hair requiring extra time to remove

  • Your pet needs a specialized, more time-consuming service, like hand stripping or hand scissoring

  • Your pet needs an extra helper

  • Your pet is extremely dirty and requires extra time and supplies to get clean

  • Your pet is a large or giant breed or a heavy-coated breed, requiring extra time and effort

  • Your pet is not groomed regularly, requiring some "magic grooming" touch and time!

Last Minute Cancellation or No Show

Sometimes life changes at the last moment and you are unable to make your appointment.

Since we are specifically holding a time slot with a dedicated groomer for your pet, please note that cancellations with less than 24 hours notice will have a $25 missed appointment fee payable before or at your next visit. Multiple missed appointments may increase the fee.

Pets arriving more than 15 minutes late for their grooming appointment without timely notice, will possibly have a late fee added since the groomer was waiting and is now running behind schedule. If we are not able to accommodate the delayed arrival, the "missed appointment" fee may apply.

Thank you for your understanding!

Shaving Double-Coated Breeds (dogs only)

A double-coated breed is a dog that has short hair on its snout and a longer texture on its body. (Bernese, Golden, Husky, Newfie, St. Bernard, Shepherds, Pyrenese, Malamute, Australian Shepherd, Labrador, Sheltie, Pomeranian etc)

Has your double-coated dog been shaved before? The more often you clip or shave a double-coated breed the more likely it will NOT grow back properly. Although for some dogs even the first clip can change the coat for life. 

When we say not grow back properly, the most common problem we find is that the coat texture changes and mats together extremely quickly.  The maintenance becomes much more difficult and grooming frequency will need to increase.  Shaving can also cause the coat to not shed out properly and clump/felt together making grooming and regular maintenance much more difficult. Thus making grooming visits more frequent and potentially be more expensive.

Clipping a double-coated breed removes the protection the coat provides. The best ways to cool a dog are to clip the belly, not the sides and back. Paws and underbelly are how they cool down. Laying on a cool floor, or standing in a doggy pool etc.  You can also trim the feathering (long hair on the legs, tail, etc).  Though the texture on this area may change it is generally not as drastic as the change to the main body coat.

If you are aware of the potential problems and would still like to proceed with clipping down your double-coated breed please consult with our groomer.
