(Pro Tip - The vaccine takes 10 days to be fully activated in your pups blood system after administration!)
 

Matting Charges

  • Matting is not only painful for the pup and creates a negative connection to getting groomed but is also emotionally taxing for the groomer. As with all other grooming facilities, we charge when we find matting. This additional charge is on the severity of the matting. We rate matting as follows:


Light            $25

Medium      $50
Heavy          $85
Severe        $110
 

  • For pups not properly socialized or wound up, we charge an additional $20 for the other groomer's time to help with your dog's groom. You always have the option to take daycare breaks if you choose the play-and-groom option. 

Appointment Length

Please give us 3-4 hours to ensure consistent personal care for your pup. (Box Fan/Hand Dry Only ) This time ensures we will achieve consistent personal care before you receive your pups pick up test. (Please do not come to the Salon until) Needing your pup in a shorter amount of time, let us know at drop-off and we will try our best to accommodate your needs. When your pet it ready for pick-up, please come get them promptly.

Leash Policey
