  • Is your staff trained and experienced?

  • Yes, they are. See our About Us page for more information about our staff members.



  • Are you open after hours?

  • This is a trick question. Generally no. However, we do our best to make accomodations for our customers and may make exceptions now and then.



  • Why do you have to see my pet
    to determine the cost of grooming?

  • Sometimes difficult for customers to describe the length and condition of their pet's hair.
    * What some think is short, is medium to others.
    * What some think is just a brush out, is actually matted and will take longer (a full grown malamute can take up to 6 hours to de-shed).
    * For these reasons, final determinations are always made upon arrival.

  • Does my pet have to be up to date on their shots?

  • Our goal is to protect our other customer's pets. For this reason, we request that all customers keep their pets up to date on vaccinations.




  • Do you have experience with toy sized dogs?

  • Yes we do. A good portion of our customers have toy sized dogs.



  • Will you groom my large dog
    (more than 90 pounds)?

  • What if my pet gets hurt?

  • In the unlikely event that your pet is somehow injured, we will immediately contact you to inform you of the injury.



  • Do you groom aggressive dogs?

  • This depends on the dog. Again, this is about interpetation and we will make a determination when you arrive with your pet.



  • What if I don't like what you did?

  • Due to our years in the industry, and always ensuring that we understand what you would like done, we will do our best to prevent such an occurance.



  • Will you shave my pet?

  • Yes. In fact, if your pet comes in with an extremely matted under coat and we may have no choice but to shave him or her.
    Shaving an animal sounds simple, yet comes with precautions.
    >> Shaving dogs is not recommended when the under coat can be combed out.
    This is because a dog's fur not only keeps it warm on cold nights (under coat) and rainy days (top coat), but also protects it from sunburn during the summer months (this is done by shedding (or de-shedding) the under coat and leaving the top coat).

    >> The final appearance is something to consider as well. We will do our best to advise you how the end result will appear before we perform a shave.
    Once started, there is no undoing it.
