OUR PROCESS

On average we like to have the dogs around four hours. This allows drop off before work and pick up at lunch time or 8-12, 1-5. This ensures that your pet does not have to stand the entire time, great for seniors and puppies. For thick double coated breeds they don’t have to stand for hours of drying; especially nice for dogs that are afraid of dryers. For curly coats that need to strait and fluffy to ensure an even hair cut, can rest before finish grooming.

We also strongly suggest that the owner does not stay with the their pet. We need to have the dog trust us and if they become afraid they will want mom/ dad/owner save them. We also need them to pay attention to the groomer at times to scissor the head it makes it difficult if they try to look at owner. If you want to watch us groom someone’s pet you are more than welcome to hang out for awhile at the shop.

Rare cases: Start to Finish

For an extra charge we will allow an owner to stay, this must be discussed when appointment is made.

OUR TEAM

High school worked for a groomer helping D.I.Y clients, eventually a brusher bather.
E.R. Vet Assistant, mostly kennel attendant, but did learn some very important things from E.R. cases.
Aug-Oct ’07 Loveland, CO grooming school. It was great to already have experience handling dogs. I was able to learn more about clipper work and how to make things look finished with an eye for details. Oct’07-Aug’11 I was able to work with an experienced groomer who helped me develop my grooming skills. Tricks to help a dog be more comfortable and make it faster. To understand how to apply the owner’s directions to the grooming process to ensure a happy client. Much more priceless information.
