Heavily matted coats can be very difficult to near impossible to comb out. Attempting to do so can  cause discomfort and irritation to your pet

Our grooming staff will carefully examine your pet to determine the extent of matting. At that time we will recommend either a dematting procedure or we will recommend that the matting is too extensive and that the dog be shaved. We reserve the right not to attempt dematting if in our professional judgement the process would be too painful and potentially harmful to your pet 

Our grooming staff will perform de-matting at a flat rate of $ 10.00 per ten minutes for animals that we determine can be safely de-matted. Quotes cannot be given over the phone as the condition of your animal's coat must be seen by a groomer prior to making an estimate.

The de-shedding process thins and partially strips away your dog's undercoat as well as the top coat. This process helps to reduce or eliminate a dog's shedding for up to six weeks. Unlike shaving, the dog's coat is only thinned out therefore the length of the coat is not reduced.

Yes we have both on-board heating and air conditioning to keep the van at a comfortable temperature for our groomers and your pet. We also have multiple ceiling vents to provide fresh air circulation. The bath water is heated to a comfortable level for your pet. All bath water is fresh. Used water is sent to a seperate container and stored there until emptied.

Generally a typical grooming lasts from 60 to 90 minutes. Of course this is a function of the pets condition and the size of the pet. The groomers will be able to estimate the duration of the time it will take to provide the services you requested.

We no longer groom cats

Not at this time. We were considering grooming Hippos but there is a low demand and we would need a much larger van. (just kidding)

No we do not. For nervous or figety pets we take the extra time to make your pet feel comfortable and safe.Usually a little treat and a little petting will get your pet to relax and feel safe. We do not perform any services that are painful to your pet and therefore no anesthesia is needed.
