Your First Grooming Appointment What to Expect.

Once you contact us via the "Schedule Grooming" tab on our homepage, one of us will email you to discuss your grooming needs and set an appointment. We'll answer your questions and give you an estimate. Clue us in to any special needs or concerns. Please leave a number where you can be reached between 9am - 6pm, Monday through Friday just in case we cant reach you by email.

We spoil pets during 9 appointment slots available each day, starting at 7:30am. Our last session starts at 4:45pm. But special arrangements can be made for later appointments. We knock ourselves out to be on time. But, when you're dealing with traffic and pampered pooches, things can get a little unpredictable. We really appreciate a little flexibility on your part, so a 60-minute window around our scheduled arrival time is a really good idea. You can count on us arriving as close to your scheduled time as possible. We will keep you updated if there is any delay.

 

When your groomer arrives for that all-important first appointment, she'll meet with you and your four-legged friend. Pups like to get to know a new person before jumping in. If you're okay with Mom, you're okay with me... that's the way they think. 

We'll confirm your services, and give your pup a once-over to make sure that the price we quoted over the phone is accurate. Now is the time to remind the groomer about any special needs, unusual behavior to expect or past issues. Does your baby have a favorite toy or something familiar that can provide comfort? Be sure and let us know so we can take that special red ball or much-loved teddy bear with us. 

Once Fluffy's grooming is done, we'll report on how the session went, and provide recommendations for future care. You'll be asked to spend a few moments looking over your pet carefully with us. We want to be sure you are totally happy with every detail of their grooming. Any needed fine-tuning will be made on the spot.

We ask that you stay at home during the first appointment, usually 60 to 90 minutes for most breeds. Future grooming appointments will take less of your time, now that we know how your pet will behave and the look you like. Once you are comfortable with us, many of our clients book grooming sessions to occur while they are away from the house - completely freeing up your time.

Mobile dog grooming brings the dog groomer to your home.  Here are some of the advantages of mobile pet grooming:

  • Convenience. You are free to handle other chores or activities around your house while your dog is groomed.

  • One-on-one-attention.  With mobile dog grooming, the focus of the groomer is solely on your dog.

  • Less stress for your dog.  Mobile dog grooming eliminates any discomfort or anxiety on the part of your dog leaving his home.

  • More comfortable for your dog.  No cages with us!

  • No more kennel cough. The spread of disease is minimized with mobile pet grooming.

  • Calmer experience.  Being groomed at home can show your dog the grooming experience is nothing to be scared of.

  • Great for older animals. No need to transport senior dogs with limited mobility or sore joints. And mobile dog grooming can keep an older dog’s coat in top condition, which is an important part of staying healthy.
