PLEASE NOTE--Proof of your pet's rabies vaccination should be provided on your first visit. They will then be kept on file. VA requires all dogs to be vaccinated. A copy of your rabies certificate, or a vet invoice with the due date of your pet's next rabies vaccination will work. We cannot accept your dog's rabies tag as the expiration date is not listed.
All of our grooming services are handled by one of our certified groomer. We have over the 40 years grooming experience in our salon and have a great deal of experience handling different breeds. With our experience comes a vast knowledge of handling issues such as fear, aggression, and special needs such as dogs with physical handicaps as well as elderly dogs who just need to have someone take their time and treat them with compassion.
This includes use of the tubs, use of the shampoos/conditioners, use of the combs/brushes, use of face/ear wipes, use of towels, use of force drier, use of after spritz, and we provide the clean-up.
All of our first time groom clients, or long-term clients looking to try something different, will have a chance to consult with their groomer at the time of their scheduled appointment. Please let us know if you would like a consultation at the time you make your appointment. In this consultation your groomer will spend time with you one-on-one to get to know the needs of both you and your pet. She will explain to you what is offered in our full service grooming packages, and make recommendations appropriate to your pet. Together you will decide on the perfect cut, the best shampoo, as well as picking out some little touches to keep your pet feeling comfortable and at home.
During this consultation feel free to ask all the questions you may have. Your groomer can also show you the equipment she will be using, take you to where your dog will be staying, and walk you through the grooming process step-by-step
These services are available on a walk-in basis, provided our Groomer is available. This can be included with the Self Service Bath or purchased solo. These prices apply to walk-ins. Additional charges may apply if a grooming appointment is made for these services.
Nail Trim: $10
Your pet's nails are taken as short as comfortable with a pair of specialized nail clippers.
Nail Grind: $12
Your pet's nails are rounded and smoothed over with a specialized grinding tool. This can often get them shorter than regular nail trimming. Nail trimming might be done before the grinding itself at no additional charge.
Face, Feet & Fanny Trim: $25 *please call ahead for the FFF to ensure the groomers are available - this is a walk in service and you need to remain in the vicinity as it only takes about 20 - 30 minutes.
Your pet gets a light trimming in some key areas in between grooms. All four paws and pads, the sanitary area and the face--between the eyes and around the mouth only.
Again, $25 is for a walk in Face, Feet, and Fanny ONLY and does not include a bath. Appointments for a Face, Feet, and Fanny trim including bath START at $70 and go up depending on the breed of the dog.
Nails & Ears: $15
Your pet's nails are taken as short as comfortable with a pair of specialized nail clippers. Your pet's ears are cleaned, plucked if needed and trimmed up if needed.
Smooth Nails & Ears: $17
Your pet's nails are rounded and smoothed over with a specialized grinding tool. Your pet's ears are cleaned, plucked if needed and trimmed up if needed. Nail trimming might be done before the grinding itself at no additional charge.
Anal Glands: $10
Your pet's anal glands are expressed externally, then the area is cleaned with a wipe and your pet receives a light spritzing of a scent of your choice.
Your pet will have their teeth brushed with a personal tooth brush and minty fresh gel. This helps keep tartar under control, freshens breath, and might help put off those costly dental bills!
All of our full service grooms include--full bath, fluff dry, brush-out, full haircut, nail trimming or grinding, and ear cleaning & plucking. Upon request, anal glands may be expressed and teeth brushed for no additional charge with a full groom. Additional charges may apply to full service grooming in certain cases.
Our grooming prices are based upon your pet's breed. Because breed mixes are quite popular--and we understand why!- your pet will be classified based upon it's dominant fur type. If you are unsure what breed type your pup will be categorized as, we ask that you contact us for an estimate. We may give you a base price that can change once we meet your pup in person. We try our best to get it right over the phone. Sending pictures can help with the estimate.
Express Groom: $15 - $25
If your pup has a medical issue and you prefer to stay and wait for our groomers to give him/her their spa treatment straight through, we can schedule that appointment at an additional cost above the groom price. Your pet is completed with no stops during it's visit. This service can only be completed on pets who are tolerant of the full force drier. If your pet does not tolerate our driers, we may be able to work something else out. Please contact us in person to discuss further. Express grooms require a note from your veterinarian stating it is detrimental to your dogs health and well being to be groomed in this manner.
De-Shed: $5 - $15
A special combination of steps designed to drastically cut-down on the amount of shedding your pet does. This includes extra brushing with specialized brushes made specifically for the purpose of de-shedding and specialized de-shedding treatment.
Remember our prices include many services. We do not up-charge or add on to the groom price with the exception of the Express Groom and de-shed process (not all dogs require this process). When picking up your pup from their appointment please make at least your next appointment as we are booking out pretty far into the future.
