your pet or make noises at him. Please

need to speak to you! Can I just come in?
Please text us instead of knocking. We use sharp tools near eyes and other
delicate areas and if the dog gets startled it could result in injury.
How often should my dog be groomed?
For most healthy dogs, grooming should be done every 3-8 weeks. If your pet has a skin condition, it may need
to be washed much more frequently (1-2 times/week) until the condition heals.
veterinarian prescribed a shampoo for my dog, now what?
We are veterinarian referred for skin conditions. We have years of
experience with many conditions and have a great success rate of clearing them
up and maintaining a healthy skin regimen.
But doesn't frequent bathing dry out the skin and coat? What about allergies
or skin infections?
If done incorrectly, yes! Fortunately we know what we are doing. We specialize in frequent bathing weather the dog has a skin condition
or not. We use premium grade
shampoos and conditioners that will NOT dry out the skin or coat.
Some pets have a fungal or bacterial
infection that requires frequent bathing the reduce the growth of the infection
until it heals. Other pets with
allergies to grass or other external irritants also need frequent bathing to
reduce an allergic flare up. We always follow up with a humectant conditioner for these special cases to draw in moisture.
I have my pet washed in my own shampoo?
If it is prescribed by a Veterinarian, yes of course! Otherwise, we prefer to use our own shampoos
that we have used for years with excellent results. Some store bought shampoos aren’t
professional grade and can cause itchy, dry skin.
How soon can I get an appointment?
can usually schedule your appointment within 1-6 weeks. Holiday appointments will need to be scheduled 2-8 weeks in advance.
Why does mobile dog grooming cost more than a regular grooming salon?
The simple and honest answer is volume vs. quality. In a grooming shop, one groomer can groom
approximately 3 dogs per hour. The dogs
are washed, crated, dried, crated, brushed, crated, groomed, and then crated
again. It is an assembly line to groom
as many dogs in a day as one can possibly groom. In a mobile grooming salon, your pet gets one
on one quality time and a groom with no waiting periods. Another factor is the cost of gas, hefty insurance costs, vehicle and generator maintenance, the cost
of our premium shampoos, and our drive time.
Why are your prices only
answer is simple. We do not want to mislead
our customers by giving a low price, only to significantly raise it once we see
your pet. We can give you a better idea
with a reasonable estimate once we meet your pet.
How long will it take?
on the size, temperament, and service, the mobile grooming process usually ranges
between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours per dog.
What is the need for an
booking your appointment, you will be given a 2-4 hour window of arrival
time. This allows us plenty of time to
account for difficult grooms and traffic. If you absolutely need a smaller window, you will need to be our first
appointment of the day. We can also call
you when we are on our way, upon request.
Do you groom sedated pets?
with your veterinarians permission. We
do not sedate pets, nor can we administer the prescription given by your
My dog recently had
surgery/stitches, can I still have him groomed?
your pet has stitches, we are unable to groom him. If your pet has an open wound, we are unable
to groom him. The reason for this may
seem unfair, but let us explain. When
bathing a dog, the shampoo loosens all of the dirt and bacteria found all over
the dog. Even though the dog is rinsed
and clean, that dirty water can and will seep into the wound or the stitch site
and can infect the area. Unless you have
written permission from your vet, we can not groom any dogs with open wounds, scabbing, or
Please, what on earth are anal
one of the most unpleasant topics, it is the most frequently asked question. Anal glands act as a scent sac for marking
territory. When a pets stool is too
soft, or he doesn’t squeeze hard enough, these glands will fill up with extra
fluid and can become infected or impacted and require veterinary attention and
even surgical removal. With every groom,
we will check and express as needed.
Should I be tipping my groomer?
are always welcomed and greatly appreciated, but not mandatory. Most customers like to tip us like they tip
their hair dressers.
What about my elderly/special
love elderly pets! They deserve to be
treated with kindness and respect. Elderly pets tend to have sore joints and tender spots all over their
body. Special needs pets are all on a case by case basis and we always
recommend a custom program for them. Because elderly and special needs pets can get easily overwhelmed with
the grooming process, your pets safety and comfort will take precedence over
any cosmetic desires.
My dog’s hair has some mats…is
that a problem?
all depends on the condition of the coat and the temperament of your pet. Very few pets can handle dematting for more
than 15 minutes. Because your pets
safety and sanity is our first priority, we only allow 15-20 minutes of
dematting time at $1/minute. We
are glad to come back for several visits to demat your pet over time, but this
can get extremely expensive and is frustrating for your dog. If the mats are beyond brushing, we will clip
your dogs hair and start the coat over. Severe mats can cause skin irritations and many skin problems including
hot spots, sores, redness, etc. Clipping
your pet can expose these conditions and you will be immediately notified of
what we find. Some pets may require a
complete shave down and a re moisturizing treatment.
My matted dog had a shavedown,
why does he need a skin reconditioning treatment?
a dogs hair is matted for a long period of time, the skin can lose elasticity and
become hyper sensitive. The best way to
describe this feeling is if you have had your hair in a tight ponytail all day
long, at the end of the day it hurts when you loosen your hair. Men, same goes for leg hair when wearing
socks all day with the hair held in the wrong direction. The pain your dog can feel is much
worse. With our skin reconditioning
treatment, the skin gains elasticity and soothes the tenderness caused by the
tight mats. This is mandatory because your dog can and will scratch and bite himself to try and fix the pain
on his own. That will cause immediate
irritation and skin sores. Hematomas can and do occur with tight mats, especially around ears and can cause some bleeding once circulation has been restored from removing matted hair.
Do you muzzle dogs?
always do what we can to avoid using a muzzle. Unfortunately some dogs can not be groomed without one. If your dog does require a muzzle, we always
try to ease the dogs aggressive or nervous behavior over time. Many of our aggressive/nervous clients come
around over time and a muzzle is no longer needed. However, if your pet thrashes or continues aggressive behavior we would end the groom for the safety of the dog and groomer.
Can my dog have his toys/treats
course! Please feel free to
provide us with your cookies. If your
dog needs a toy to hold for comfort, we always welcome them!
What if I need to cancel my
require a 24 hour notice for cancellation of a scheduled appointment. Our fee is $20 for any appointments not
canceled within 24 hours. Grace shall
apply under certain circumstances and will be removed from your chart if
paperwork is supplied from your vet, etc.
Can you give my dog a haircut
without a bath?
your pet is elderly or special needs and cannot be bathed, your dog needs a
wash. In order to provide a good clip
and maintain healthy skin and coat all dogs are washed and conditioned.
