Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to groom my dog?
Most dogs take 1 and 1/2 to 2 hours to groom. A larger dog like a standard poodle may take up to 3 hours to groom.
How long does it take to just give my dog a bath?
Just a bath means a nail trim and ear cleaning too. We would also trim up the face, pads and feet. It should take an hour, but may be longer depending on the size and the coat of the dog.
Can I stay with my dog while he's being groomed?
Most dogs are less fidgety when mommy or daddy isn't around. However, if you feel better staying with your dog, you are welcome to do so. Just remember you may get full of fur and wet! You will not be able to touch the dog while he is being groomed and you will need to stay out of the way.
My dog doesn't like other dogs. Can he be groomed alone?
We try not to have dogs mingle with each other. Most dogs are not bothered by other dogs in our salon. If you wish to have a very quiet grooming appointment, we can schedule an early morning appointment before we schedule other dogs.
My dog bites and has been turned away by other groomers. Will you be able to groom him?
If your dog has ever bitten anyone, please let us know. If we feel your dog is likely to bite, we may put a muzzle on him. Sometimes this even calms the dog down. With our tender loving care approach we have made peace with dogs that started out tough and afraid of grooming!
Does my dog get a fresh towel when he's dried?
Of course! We have a washer and dryer on site and we use fresh towels on each dog or cat.
Do I need to book an appointment in advance?
Booking an appointment for a grooming service ahead of time ensures that you are not kept waiting any longer than necessary.
