The Grooming Process
When you call to make an appointment, we'll work with you to find the best day and time to come by. After you make an appointment, we'll give you a call on the morning of your appointment to confirm the time and place. When we arrive we'll spend a few minutes setting up our equipment and introduce your pet to the van.
We'll spend a little time with you to make sure we completely understand what you expect. From there we'll need to plug our extension cord into an outlet at your house so we have power for our equipment. If you live in a condo or an apartment, please check with your management for any rules and regulations that might be in effect. We carry everything we need with us. You are more than welcome to be a part of the grooming process, or you can go about your day. When your pet is finished, we'll deliver him to your front door all clean and groomed. We accept cash or check as payment.
Our Services Include
- Cleaning the ears
- Cleaning the eyes
- Clipping the nails
- Brushing the dog out
- Brushing their teeth
- Applying artificial tears to protect the eyes from irritation
We use different types of shampoos some of which contain natural pyrethrins to kill fleas on contact. Others are for sensitive, itchy and dry skin while others enhance the natural color of your pet's coat. All shampoos provide odor control and leave a long-lasting scent. If your pet has a medical condition, you can always provide your own shampoo if you like. We would be happy to apply it on your pet.
- Anal Glands
During the bathing process we check and empty the anal glands, which many times is a contributor to a pet's foul smell.
After bathing your pet we towel him dry and bring him to the grooming table. There we continue by using a special blower that not only dries your pet but also gives them a massage.
- Trimming, Clipping & Scissoring
Once your pet is dry we can trim you're their hair the way you like it. Specific breeds usually have a specific style of grooming. We will discuss your desires before any clipping is done to make sure we understand you. We have worked with many breeds including Cocker Spaniel, Terrier, Yorkshire, Maltese, and many more. We're sure you'll be impressed with the results.
Finally, we apply a specially formulated and fresh smelling cologne so that your pet comes home smelling sweet.
