It is important to us and to your dog that you are able to be on time for your appointment and pick up promptly. This allows us to provide undivided attention to your dog and the next appointment as well.
If you have time constraints, please let us know ahead of time. Each canine stylist services one dog at a time, so being on time is very important to us. If you are going to be late please give us a call.
We usually scheduled between 3-6 weeks ahead of time for appointments. Summer months and holidays are typically scheduled two weeks in advance. Same day appointments are rare and we will try to accommodate and to keep a wait list during busy times.
All prices are based on THE BREED, AVERAGE STANDARD SIZE, LENGTH DESIRED, AND CONDITION OF THE COAT. This is the toughest part of the grooming business.
Please note: From visit to visit your price may vary depending on the length desired and condition of the coat. If you have any questions regarding your price, we are always happy to discuss it with you.
Dog Grooming is an art. We do not get the same luxuries of your hairdresser for absolute stillness and pointing our heads in one direction. We are basically working with sharp equipment on a moving target and are very careful. Please share with us any concerns you may have about your dog's behavior so we know ahead of time.
Severely Matted Dogs: If it is going to be painful for the pet, we do not do it. Occasionally we can set aside time to work on certain hair types but for the most part, prevention is key. If your pet arrives with matted hair that will take more than a few minutes to safely brush out - you will be charged a minimum of $10 per 15 minutes of brush out time. Only IF WE HAVE ALREADY AGREED TO BRUSH IT OUT. We require a matted release form to be signed prior to grooming a matted dog. Severe matt's may uncover many skin issues and this release will detail some things we may uncover.
Special Needs (Behavior or Medical): We are willing to work with dogs that have a difficult time at the groomers. We find that the way we groom, start to finish, is a positive way to groom these types of dogs. If you let us know that your dog has biting or other nervous issues, we will take every precaution we can.
We always try to detect fleas and ticks on a dog prior to beginning the bathing/grooming process. Sometimes we do not notice the fleas or ticks until after the bath. In these situations the orignal service fee will be charged, however the service will not be completed, to decontaminate the shop afterwards.
De-Skunking: $12-$18. We offer a bath with a natural citrus based de-skunking shampoo. We are successful in removing about 95-100% of the skunk odor, depending on how much and where your dog was sprayed. Skunk spray is very oily and the smell will linger for days, everywhere your dog touched!
Overgrown / Packed Undercoat - Minimum charge of $10-$30 depending on size of the dog and type of coat. A dog is considered overgrown if they have not been groomed with-in 8/12 weeks of their last appointment. Packed undercoat is when a dog is blowing their coat and has not been brushed out. The dead hair is usually packed in certain areas requiring additional time to blow and/or brush out. De Matting $12 per 15min.
DOG SITTING FEE:
-$15 per hour late pick-up without notification, per dog. We ask that you are able to pick your dog up with-in 30 minutes of completion of the groom.
NO SHOW FEE:
Any appointments canceled or no-shows, with less than 48 hours notice, will be charged a fee equal to original service fee. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, you are consider a no-show. You will be asked to reschedule and will be charged the full amount for the service that was scheduled. If time allows us to fit you in you will be assessed a $15 late fee in addition to the full amount of the original service.
Any check that is unable to be deposited or returned for any reason, will incure a $25 charge and or for late payment, plus a $5.00 service charge for each collection notice.
