We cannot quote you a price over the phone, we can only estimate.
Cost involves the condition of the dog's coat and behaviour and temperament of the dog.
Dogs that have fleas will be charged extra to cover the cost of eradicating the fleas.
The groomer determines what style your dog may recieve in cases of severely matted dogs.
The comfort and safety of your dog is our first concern over a stylsh clip. Excessive dematting can cause a brush burn and pain to your dog. Severely matted dogs may have underlying skin conditions not evident before the grooming. We will act always in your dog's best interests in this case and give the most humane grooming possible for your dag's comfort and safety.
I have been teaching obediences classes since 1978.
It is one of the most rewarding parts of owning Hair Of the Dog! there is nothing better than seeing a dog with no direction turn into a well-behaved member of the family. Classes are held outdoors by the shop, so that dogs learn to work thru distractions of people passing by, kids & bicycles, sounds of horns, sirens, and even the train whistle. Classes are taught with an emphasis on positive reinforcement and treats.Classes are 8 weeks, one hour per week, with first and last class being 1+1/2 hour long.
Dogs are taught to Heel on lead
the Leave It! command, Watch (to focus on owner), Automatic sits, Sit, Stand, and Down commands, Greeting a Stranger with a dog, Stand for Examination, One minute Sit-Stay, Three minute Down-Stay, Wait, and Come/Recall & Finish command. We will go over breaking bad habits, learning to speak DOG, and socialization. A graduation occurs on the final night of class.
Classes are held Spring thru Fall outdoors.
Call HAIR OF THE DOG at 570-379-3049 for details and costs. A deposit to reserve your place in class is required and the remaining cost is to be paid at first class. The deposit is non-refundable, should you decide to drop out, as you are reserving a place in a class that someone else may desire. You will need a training collar, a six-foot leash(no flexi retractables), treats, and comfortable clothes. Please bring your own water and dish to hydrate your dog.
Classes are fun and taught with laughter.
Relax and enjoy! You will make new friends and find you have a well-behaved best friend that you can take anywhere with pride!
Thank you for visiting Hair Of The Dog!My name is Melody Fuller, and my world revolves around my dogs. That includes my clients dogs and my own dogs. When your dog is groomed here, we treat your pet with love and respect for his/her comfort and safety.Dogs have owned me my whole life. I began showing and breeding Doberman Pinschers in 1976 and then Mastiffs in 1984. My kennel name is FANTASY MASTIFFS. I have been showing in obedience and conformation since 1976 and training dogs professionally in obedience since 1978. In 1992, I graduated from the New York School of Dog Grooming and opened HAIR OF THE DOG in 1993. I am very proud to be a certified groomer and continue my education in all courses dog-related, to give you the best service possible. We groom with LOVE & positive reinforcement and a gentle hand. We choose the highest quality shampoos and conditioners designed for your pet's safety. Dogs are dried on the table for 80% of their drying time, then we use "passive-drying" for the final grooming process. We do NOT use heated cage dryers. Your dog can expect to have a 2 to 3 hour spa treatment while in our care.
Our Dog Bakery
In 1995, I introduced Jagger's Doggy Deli into my shop. After grooming,all dogs leave with a rawhide lollypop and we had run out of them. Since it was October, I baked my first dog cookie in a Pumpkin Spice flavor and the dogs loved it! When clients told me that even the finickiest dogs were loving these cookies, I began creating more flavors and we now have a gourmet dog bakery with over 20 flavors for our clients to choose from. We are certified by the PA. Dept. of Agriculture and we are a PA Preferred company. In the summer months, from July to Nov, Jagger's vends at the Wilkes Barre Farmers Market on the Square, so the salon is closed on Thursday.
