A Day at the Spa for your Dog

Step 1 - All dogs are ready for their bath. Initial clipping is done by removing excess body hair. The remaining hair is detangled using a gentle brushing followed by a fine-toothed comb. This aids in obtaining a thorough cleansing in the bath as well as giving the shampoo nowhere to hide during the final rinse. The nails are clipped and ears are cleaned at this time.
30-45 minutes

Step 2 - The bath consists of a thorough shampooing with a mild, tearless shampoo and complete rinse. Flea treatment and other preparations such as cream rinses and medicated shampoos are used at the owners' request or as needed.
15-30 minutes

Step 3 - After the bath all dogs are dried and thoroughly brushed so that the hair is left tangle-free. Keeping your pet brushed and combed between grooming results in a more enjoyable and less stressful visit for your pet.
20-60 minutes.

A restful break

In between steps pets are returned to their kennels for a rest and drink of water.

We feel the dogs respond better to being groomed when they are not rushed and can relax between steps.This also establishes desirable grooming habits.

The Final Critical Step

Step 4 - Now that the time-consuming steps are over we can relax and enjoy the finish clipping or scissoring.Most body work is done with clippers. Legs, head and tail are usually scissored.

This take about an hour depending the size of the dog, style of the cut and the cooperation of the dog.

Special consideration and attention are needed in the final step. Dogs must be relaxed because a sudden jerk can change a style dramatiCall:y.
While dogs are on the table, arrivals, departures, phone Call:s or any unexpected commotion can cause the dog to lose attention and become excited. Consequently.
We have to stop to calm the dog or cat to get them quiet enough to resume grooming.
This is the reason we try to control the time of pickups.

A Day at the Spa for your Cat

A day at the Spa does not have to be traumatic experience for your cat.
Each one is given plenty of attention and T.L.C. We are professionals and work with many cats of different breeds and temperament

All cats require two of our professional groomers to do the job safely and properly.
Cat bites have a high tendency to become infected, so it is crucial that there are two groomers to
do your cat. One groomer will hold the cat steady while the other does the clipping, bath and brushout.
This is why the cost of cat grooms is a little more expensive.

We offer a full range of cat styles from Lion Mane Cuts to complete shave-downs for your cat. We also will
dematt some cats, depending on the level of matting and cats cooperation. Simple bath and brushouts are also available.

A restful break

In between steps of the cat groom, they are returned to their crate or kennel to rest.
We feel the cats respond better to being groomed when they are not rushed and can relax between steps.
This also establishes desirable grooming habits.

While cats are being groomed, arrivals, departures, phone Call:s or any unexpected commotion can cause the cat to become stressed and/or excited. Consequently. We have to stop to calm the cat to get them quiet enough to resume grooming. A cranky, stressed cat is difficult to groom and
and does not leave the cat with a positive Spa experience. This is the reason we try to control the time of pickups.

ALL Cats MUST Be in their own carrier or crate. It is more stressful for your cat to be in the kennel room surrounded by our canine guests. Also, it is dangerous to transport your cat without a carrier.
