Proper pet hygiene is important for your family pet. New client consultations are always free. Upon check-in, we thoroughly review what we can or cannot do for your pet on that day. We'll discuss trim options that will fit your pet's lifestyle and in-between professional appointment care and we will discuss frequency of professional grooming needs. If you want, we will even teach you how to brush between appointments!
A Clean Pet is a Happy Pet
Routine grooming every 2 to 6 weeks for most pets keeps their skin and coat in peak condition. We have a variety of services at very competitive prices to help you keep your pet looking and smelling wonderful.
Discounted Grooming Rates
When you allow one of our students to groom your dog, your rate will be discounted to reflect this. Usually this discount is 50%.
Weekly & Bi-Weekly Discount Program
This program is designed for those pets that really share your life and sometimes even your bed! With today's gentle products, dogs and cats can easily be bathed weekly or bi-weekly without risk of drying out the skin or coat. Some pets have coats that require a bit more maintenance between grooms to keep them in an advantageous condition. If you don't want to brush between grooms or your pet has "too much fun" outside, this program is for you. It is steeply discounted and is custom created weekly or bi-weekly based on the needs of you and your pet. Please request a personal quote from our staff based on your desires to keep your pet looking and feeling it's best.
Our normal hours are 7:30 AM to 5:30 PM. If you encounter a situation where you will be unable to pick up your pet by normal closing time, please give us a call to let us know.
