We value experience and continuing education. Our team of certified stylists are hand-picked for their dedication to their craft as well as compassionate handling skills. They provide unbeatable individualized service to not only meet your needs, but also exceed your expectations of what a dependable Dog Groomer can be.
Because we focus on private, individualized service for each client we must ensure each pet receives the attention it deserves. Each time slot is reserved specifically for your pet and we appreciate your understanding and cooperation. Making an appointment with us will mean that you acknowledge and accept the following policies.
DROP OFF AND PICK UP
Please arrive at your scheduled appointment time. Late arrival may result in having to reschedule your appointment. If your appointment is canceled or rescheduled due to your late arrival, you may be responsible for the fee. Pick up time may vary depending on services requested, behavior, and condition of pet. An estimated pick up time is given at drop off, and then a message will be sent 30 minutes before finishing to confirm. In order to keep our environment stress-free for everyone and continue the 1-on-1 services, we cannot hold dogs beyond their scheduled time slot. Please be ready for pick up during the estimated pick up time window.
We are an appointment-based business and canceling or rescheduling without 48-hour notice can negatively impact our practice. We ask that you reschedule or cancel at least 2 days before the beginning of your appointment. Cancelling or rescheduling without 48-hour notice will be recorded as a no-show and a $50 fee will be assessed. If a second or subsequent appointment is missed without 48-hour notice the client is responsible for the entire cost of service. Please note that multiple-pet appointments will count as one individual appointment each per pet.
Prices may vary depending on services and condition of pet. Please see our services page for more information on pricing.
