Frequently Asked Questions
We don’t like to rush our grooming sessions since quality work does take time, plus we enjoy spending time with the dogs and want to make each grooming session as enjoyable as possible for your dog. That being said, a grooming session typically will take between two to four hours. We do schedule puppies and older dogs in the morning for an express service since they have special needs.
How often your dog should be groomed depends on the breed but on average, 4-6 weeks is typical. Dogs with longer coats will require more frequent grooming and should be groomed every 3-4 weeks.
The grooming cost really depends on size, breed, temperament and condition of the dog. The best way to give you the most accurate cost estimate is to bring your dog in so we can see it in person so we can discuss.
Usually, we book our appointments 3-4 days out depending on how busy we are. However, sometimes we can accommodate same day requests so we always recommend that you call us.
Each grooming session includes a thorough inspection of your pet for matting and obvious health concerns, a brush out to remove matted or shedding hair, the trimming of nails, an inspection of foot pads for excess hair and debris, cleaning and plucking of ears and bathing.
If time allows, we are happy to do that.
