Day Play

As long as we have your pet’s vaccination records and your dog has had a temperament test with us they can play with the other dogs their size in our daycare while they wait to be groomed. This relieves the stress that they would experience while waiting in a cage and helps with their socialization. There is no extra charge for this.

Frequency of Grooming

Although it depends mostly on the breed, hair length, and type of coat, regular grooming should be done about once a month. For young puppies and dogs who have never been groomed, more frequent grooming or brushing at home should be done to get the dog used to being handled and to avoid grooming issues into adulthood.

Brushing

Regular brushing is good for both the dog and the owner. Shedding is one of the biggest complaints we hear and this problem can be significantly reduced by brushing your pet once or twice a week.

Painful matts are another very common problem. If you encounter a matt you should use a dematting rake to carefully loosen the matt. Never attempt to cut the matt with a scissors, as you can severely injure your dog. If your dog is matted, do not bathe it, this only makes the matts tighter, and matts left unattended will get tighter and tighter until the hair is pulled right out of the skin.

Ear Cleaning

Many dogs have ears that are very susceptible to infection, excessive wax buildup, and odor. In an effort to control this we clean the ears thoroughly, as well as pluck out any excessive hair that has grown in the ear canal on most pets. We can also help guide you as to when a visit to a vet is in order.
