HUMANITY BEFORE VANITY
Humanity before vanity. What does that mean? It is taking the entire pet into consideration when we groom it. From choosing the best possible products and providing a safe and comfortable environment, to making sure that the not only the physical but also the psychological and emotional needs of the animal are supported during the grooming process. We do not crate animals and make them wait all day. Each appointment is scheduled for your pet (commonly called express grooming).
We use all natural shampoo and conditioning products to nurture your pet's spa experience! They will not only look and smell their best, but their skin will be healthier, too!
How often should you groom your pet? Grooming your dog on a regular basis has many advantages. Not only does it keeps your dog healthy (and happy), it can help detect early warning signs of rashes, skin lesions, and lumps that you may not have noticed on your own. We suggest you start the process as soon as you get a new pet. If a puppy learns early that grooming is fun, you will have a less stressful experience for you, your pet and your groomer!
For medium to long hair dogs, we suggest you come in every 4-6 weeks. Some dogs can go a little longer for a haircut if they come in between for a bath and blowout. Too long an interval between grooming appointments increases the probability of matting which adds the risk of injury and discomfort for your best friend.
Make sure you brush your dog's fur with a slicker brush and comb. For long hair and any doodles, you need to do this everyday for at least ten minutes. Brush all parts of the dog (ears, legs, tail and armpits.) Using the comb helps you find any knots or matts. If the comb can't touch the skin you need to come see us! Then, once a week, commit to about 30 minutes of brushing. You can use a detangle spray to help get out any knots before they become matts. It's recommended to have them bathed once a month. If you choose to do it yourself, be sure to dry them completely and brush them out.
Puppy's first bath can be a bit stressful, come in and let us help your puppy get acclimated to the water and the blow dryer!
Once they have had a bath or two, we suggest to acclimate your new pup to the grooming experience! We highly recommend the puppy bath before a puppy groom experience.
(Puppies up to six months old).
Come in and use our tubs, towels and products and then leave the mess for us!
Easy access tubs make it a breeze to give your furry friend a much needed bath.
We also have a drying table for those who allow the blow dryer!
