Grooming Services Menu
FULL GROOM includes:
BATH - shampooing once (or twice) as needed to get "Squeeky Clean", using High Quality Shampoos made from natural ingredients meant to be gentle and to nourish skin and coats. Our Bathing System thoroughtly cleanses skin and coat while your dog enjoys a soothing massage!
Conditioner – the right product is selected to optimize your dog's coat condition. Helps restore normal moisture balance to skin/coat, aids manageability for the fluff dry/brush out processes.
Fluff Dry - by hand, using a High Velocity Dryer (Mmmm..Think massage!). This removes loose coat comfortably and gives a close exam of skin condition. If your dog is uncomfortable with HV drying, I use slower dryers and/or some crate drying, whatever works best for your dog. I use no-heat dryers (only room temperature air) for your dog's safety and comfort. Your dog is always safely in my view when drying.
Anal Glands Expressed- if requested
Pads Shaved and Feet trimmed
Breed Specific or Requested Haircut
PRICING Pricing will vary according to Breed, the condition of your dog at that particular visit, and your Personal Requests.

Please call for my best estimate. I'll give an exact Price once I examine your dog to assess what's needed for a great groom !

We’ll get this nasty job over with and plan a Healthy Dog Grooming Schedule for your dog that will ensure he “never has to be uncomfortable in his own clothes” ever again! You Both will feel Better!
DIFFICULT TO HANDLE DOGS – Please understand that quality grooming can be difficult to achieve and can take more time to complete on dogs that are difficult to handle. However, if your dog cannot be groomed safely it may be best to take him to a Veterinary Hospital that provides grooming. They will use a mild sedative for his safety and that of the groomer. Fortunately this is a rare occurrence and most dogs will improve over time with patient, gentle grooming techniques and positive grooming experiences. This is always my Ultimate Goal!
