Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do before the first visit?
Make sure your pet is up-to-date on veterinary treatment, including vaccines. Spayed and neutered pets are generally calmer and are less likely to bite. A pet that is particularly nervous or difficult to handle makes the grooming process stressful for both your pet and the groomer. Please bring proof of current Rabies vaccine.
How much does grooming cost?
Grooming costs vary depending on your pets breed, coat condition, (behavior) and the level of difficulty of the haircut. Smaller breeds range from $25-$50 for a full grooming. Larger breeds range from $30-$75. There could be additional charges for poor coat condition (tangles and matting, excessively dirty), behavior that makes the pet difficult to groom and the removal of parasites and insects.
