Grooming

Our trained staff will be glad to take care of your pet’s grooming needs - whether that involves giving a bath, clipping nails, or providing a full body groom. If you’re booking these services in conjunction with daycare or boarding, please make the grooming reservation in advance as well to ensure your spot on the schedule. Grooming services are available by appointment only.

Popular Styles

  • Summer Cut: Takes the coat short all over, leaving the fur 1/8 inch or less on the body.
  • Winter Cut: Trims the coat while still leaving plenty of fur for the colder winter months.
  • Puppy Cut: Evens up the coat all over and leaves the fur the same length. Typically, the fur is clipped to 2 inches or less in length.
  • Teddy Bear Cut: The fur on the body is taken to the owner’s desired short length. The legs and face are left full and rounded.
  • Lion Cut: The body is shaved leaving the fur around the face, head, part of the chest, and a small portion of the shoulders. The feet, ankles, and tip of the tail are left.
  • Neaten Up: For dogs with feathering on the legs and tail, or even if you’re looking to keep the dog’s current length, this trims stray hair on the face, skirt, legs, feet, and tail.

Cut Lengths

Short

  • Leave 1/16 inch on: Takes the fur down nearly to the skin. Great for summer cuts and sanitary shaves.
  • Leave 1/8 inch on: Great for slightly longer summer cuts and for removing heavy matting from the coat.

Medium

  • Leave 1/4 inch on: Useful length for removing light matting from the dog’s coat.

Long

  • Leave 3/8 inch on: Great for neatening up the fur on the body and for winter cuts.
