Expert Haircuts

Let our professional groomers style your dog any way you want!

Our premium grooming service incorporates a soothing Spa Bath, which includes a nail trim & filing, anal gland expression, a gentle ear cleaning, and of course the haircut and style of your choice. Please note that final pricing is based on coat length, thickness, and prior maintenance.

Poodles and Doodles are priced differently from other breeds due to the increased length of time our groomers spend working on their intricate coats. We want to ensure every poodle and doodle is returned to mom and dad looking ready to walk the red carpet.

Haircuts generally take 2.5 to 3 hours to complete from drop off time.

Additional Fees & Terms

  • While we try to give every dog the best, most relaxing grooming experience possible, in the event of an uncooperative and/or aggressive dog we will do all we can to ease them through our process, though a special handling fee of up to $50 may be added, after consulting with the owner.
  • Up to 30 minutes of brushing is included in our pricing. Should your dog require longer than 30 minutes to be brushed out, $1 per each additional minute will be charged.
  • Note on Matting: Mats are often a problem with some dog coats; many mats can be eliminated with special tools and patience, while others will need clippers. However, if your dog is heavily matted, we may not be able to provide a bath, and may give you the option to have your dog shaved prior to bathing.
  • Multi-dog discounts are not applied for grooming services.

Cancellations

  • We require credit cards to be on file for all grooming clients.
  • Cancellations are accepted up to 24 hours prior to an appointment. Cancellations within 24 hours of reservations must be done via email or phone.
  • Cancellations within 24 hours on the day prior to the scheduled service will result in a $25 fee that will be automatically charged to your credit card.
  • Same day cancellations and no shows will result in a charge of the entire fee for the reserved service.
  • Please remember that our groomers work on commission; last minute cancellations do not allow them time to rebook with another client.
