Our base price begins at $50 and goes up depending on the size, condition of the coat, lenght of time between grooming and the style of cut that you want.
Small breeds average between $50 - $70 for monthly grooming. For example, a bichon groomed every four weeks that is also brushed out at home on a daily basis would require less attention to coat condition than a bichon which is groomed every four weeks but, because of busy schedules, can't be brushed every day. Another example would be a poodle groomed in a typical lamb cut (legs left a little longer than the body and hand scissored) would take less time than a more fancy, stylized trim that would take more time and cost a little more.
We recommend a monthly grooming schedule in order to keep the coat in good condition and also to keep the ears clean, nails trimmed and glands expressed.
For those clients who need care in between their monthly grooms we also offer a maintenance program which includes a bath, brush, nails clipped, glands expressed and ears cleaned for $25 - $35. This program is reserved for monthly clients only.
Larger breeds very on types of coat and grooming required.

Karen Cooley- Packer, aka Miss Congeniality, has also been grooming for 25 years. She graduated from grooming school in 1987 when she was just six years old. Well, OK maybe she was a little bit older, but to this day she still has the enthusiasm of a rookie, with the skill of a veteran. The fact that most of Karen's clients have never been groomed by anyone else is testament to her love of animals and dedication to her craft.
Julie Smieska is the youngest of the group, but there's no shortage of knowledge in this stylist's bag. She started her career as a kennel tech at Wag'n Tails Pet Resort while still in High School. She went on to graduate from grooming school in 2004 and has been keeping Lansing area pets stylin' ever since.
