Important Information

We strive to remain as cage-free as possible with a low-stress and calm grooming environment. In order for this to remain possible, accurate scheduling is a must. For this reason, we request that you read the following time requirements for your grooming appointment. 

Late for your Reservation
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your grooming appointment, your reservation will be cancelled so that another client on the waiting list can be contacted to fill your time slot. If you are more than 15 minutes late and we are still able to accommodate you, a walk-in fee of $15 will be applied.

Early Drop-Off
Early drop offs are not permitted unless doggie day care services are booked starting at an additional $15. 

Late Pick-up
Grooming appointment typically take between 2-3 hours. Once the grooming is complete, you will need to pick up within 45 mins or arrange for doggie day care services starting at an additional $15.

Certain dogs may require a special handling fee:
  • In Heat: If your female dog is in heat, a special handling fee of $20 will be required in addition to your regular grooming charges.
