Services

Spa Bath

Our warm Spa Bath begins with a mild scented foaming face wash that is safe to use around the eyes to loosen eye debris. Followed by a carefully selected shampoo and conditioner based off your dog’s skin and coat needs. All dogs are hand dried to their tolerance level, ears are cleaned, a quick dental check is performed (teeth brushing available upon request), and nails manicured. A de-shed brush out is provided with all bathing services and a Stylist will recommend frequency of appointments for optimal shedding control. All Spa Baths are finished with any necessary coat sprays.

MEDICATED BATH: Includes a Spa Bath with a hypoallergenic shampoo to help eliminate any dirt/debris followed by a 10 minute soak in our antibacterial/antifungal shampoo. This bath is great for dogs with skin issues and/or excessive odor. (An additional $20)
(**Weekly bathing is often required for a temporary period in order to see effective results.)

ODOR ELIMINATOR: Did your dog get sprayed by a skunk or rolled around in something smelly? Then this bath is for you. This shampoo is specifically designed to eliminate tough odors and naturally neutralizes the smell. (An additional $20)

FLEA & TICK SPA BATH: This all natural shampoo assists in eliminating adult fleas. (An additional $20)

 

Tidy-Up Groom

Our Tidy-Up Groom includes a Spa Bath and light trimming. The trimming includes a face trim/shape-up, feet and sanitary trim. This service is great for those Golden Retriever grinch feet or for your fluffy Doodle that’s not quite ready for a full body groom but needs just a spiff up.

 

Full Body Groom

Our Full Body Groom includes a Spa Bath and full body haircut with a scissor finish. During your pre-appointment consultation, our professional Stylists will help you determine the perfect haircut and style for your dog. Handstripping is available upon request.

ADD ON SERVICES: Dematting – $1 per minute.
(Please let us know at the time of booking if you suspect your dog is matted so we can guarantee we have sufficient time to provide this service.)

**We do NOT offer anal gland expressing. We have spoken with many veterinarians and they agree that anal glands generally should not be expressed. It’s not a routine necessity and some dogs never need and should never have them done. For that reason we do not offer this service but recommend going to your veterinarian if you feel that your dog needs this service.
 

Please note that there is no flat fee for grooming. Price varies for each dog and is determined by breed, size, and condition of your pet. Additional charges apply for de-matting, de-shedding, severe behavioral problems, excessive coat and flea treatments due to the additional time needed.
