Every visit begins with a one-on-one consultation with your groomer. That groomer will assess the condition of your dog’s coat and make recommendations for appropriate haircuts and/or skin treatments. New clients are encouraged to stop by and visit with our groomers any time.
About Our Services
Since grooming is a matter of personal taste, we ask you to spend a few minutes with the groomer to discuss your style choices and your pet’s vaccination and grooming history. Kindly allow at least four hours for a full groom. We start each grooming appointment by discussing the groom that you want your dog to have.
All of our prices are estimates until we can assess what your individual needs are. However, we have general breed prices, which can be quoted to you over the phone. The actual price quotes can vary based on the breed, condition of the dog, and individual temperament. The cost is always dependent upon the time spent. Age, past surgeries, and current injuries could be a factor in the cost.
Several options are available to obtain the desired look for your pet. Do you want a short summer cut or maybe a fluffy puppy cut? We offer all types of haircuts, including breed-specific styles with full scissored finishes.
Shampoo & Bath
A warm, sudsy bath is a great way to start your pet’s visit. We offer a variety of professional shampoos and treatments to treat common and not-so-common issues.
Included in every service we provide, whether just a bath or a full-service groom. We can also keep nails trimmed on a walk-in basis between grooming. There are more than just aesthetic reasons to trim your dog’s nails, as untrimmed nails can cause a variety of problems, including broken nails (which are painful) and the development of arthritis.
This is also a part of every service. Keeping the ears clean can help keep the ears healthy. If not kept clean, your dog’s ears can be a haven for bacteria and yeast. Some dogs can go their whole lives without ear problems; the only routine ear cleaning needed is during the monthly bath. Other dogs have chronic ear disease and require multiple cleanings a day.
Dry or Oily Skin/Coat Treatment
Like the skin and hair of many people, dogs can face problems with their coats being too dry or oily. Dry coats are often very itchy and uncomfortable, while too-oily coats can have an unpleasant odor. Our special shampoos will help your pet find a happy and healthy balance.
Conditioning Treatments may include re-moisturizers or specialty products from our Ive San Bernard spa line-up. Some dogs have chronic issues with their fur tangling and becoming matted. If treated early with deep conditioning, their coat can be combed out without discomfort.
Once your puppy is vaccinated, getting them into the salon for the first time is never too soon. We will help your puppy get accustomed to the bath and grooming experience.
