Grooming Services

Our grooming procedures:

Roughing: All dogs that come into our salon are "roughed". This procedure includes clipping of nails, cleaning ears, pre-clipping (depends on breed), brushing/dematting (depends on breed), assessment of personality and searching of lumps, bumps, aches and pains the customer is unaware of.

Bathing: Bathing is performed right after the roughing procedure. To bathe the dogs, we use several different shampoos. Regular shampoos included with all our baths as well as regular conditioners. We also use facial shampoo on all our client’s dogs as a tearless option to ensure no irritation occurs in the pet’s eyes. We also offer hypoallergenic shampoo for our sensitive skin pets, as well as deodorizing shampoo for the extra smelling dogs.

For our problem skin dogs we offer a Nagayu treatment. Nagayu hydrotherapy is the most powerful spa treatment that stimulates the dog’s circulatory system. It is achieved from the use of carbonic acid and activates cellular metabolism and accelerates the process of cell regeneration. With a couple of sessions of CO2 shower, various skin problems may be improved.

The CO2 treatment has the ability to remove mineral waste in clogged pores which causes odor while preserving the natural moisture levels in your dog’s skin. A dog’s skin has a 3rd of the thickness of human skin.

Customers are always welcome to bring in their own shampoo’s.

Forced air drying: Forced air blow drying cuts the drying time in half; therefore reducing kennel drying time drastically. By using the forced air blow dryer, all the loose undercoat is removed in the tub as well as fluffing up the coat to get that extra special look.

Kennel drying: Kennel drying is great for dogs that don't like the forced air dryer or drying areas of the dog's body that can not be dried with the forced air dryer.

Towel drying: Towel drying is perfect for small or toy breeds that love to be cuddled and held. Toweling off these dogs works very well and is the least stressful on the small dogs.

Clipping the dog's coat: After the drying procedures, depending on the breed, we will clip the coat according to the client's wishes, whether it is a regular breed clip, or a modified clip requested by the customer. Clipping can be various lengths from surgical to 5/8 of an inch. Anything longer than that is considered a hand scissored procedure.
