Dematting and Coat Length:
We pride ourselves on grooming with the pet's best interest in mind. Sometimes this means we have to go shorter than the pet's caregiver wants if matting is involved. Dematting can be a painful, stressful & time consuming process which can make dogs dislike grooming. This is something we will always discuss with clients before starting the grooming process. We do expect our clients to choose a length & haircut they can maintain at home between grooming appointments.
If a dog is matted, the severity determines what length we can keep the hair. We will NOT shave double coated dogs. That includes goldens, newfoundlands, huskys, shepherds, labs, collies, etc. Their undercoat is their thermostat. It keeps them warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
Crating and Drying:
We do not use cage dryers. We blow dry each dog by hand. This does not mean we are a cage free facility. Dogs must be able to wait in a crate until the groomer is ready and when they are finished and waiting to be picked up.
Many people ask for a price quote over the phone. Each pet is unique, even within the same breed. If someone calls and asks, "How much for a Goldendoodle?" we cannot give a specific quote. One flat price can't be set for any breed. Coat type, size of dog, home care, living environment, and frequency of professional grooming creates too many variables. We are happy to give a price range and a more definitive price once we see them in person.
