* Cash or Cheque



* Can I stay with my dog?

Sorry, no. Dogs act differently around their owners. More anxious, more fearful, more happy, more hyper, etc. They are not their normal selves. I work very patiently to earn your dog's trust and calm them so the grooming goes smoothly. I want to earn their friendship and I can't do that when they are constantly distracted by your presence. It is also more dangerous working with scissors and clippers on a dog that simply wants to reach its' owner.

* Do you cage the dogs?

I manually dry all the dogs so have no need for a cage dryer. If I need to separate a dog(s), for whatever reason, I simply use a gate in a doorway. Besides that, they have the run of the house.

* Do you muzzle aggressive dogs?

As a rule, no. I've used a muzzle on one dog only, simply because it was too dangerous not to. If a dog has a history of serious aggression I may use an E-collar while I groom. It restricts the dog from biting me while at the same time not confining his/her face. I feel it retains a dog's dignity and freedom of movement which is very important when earning a dog's trust. If your dog is simply a 'nipper' (nips when nervous) I don't constrain them. I just use patience and affection.

* Do you sedate dogs?

No. That's cheating.

* Are there breeds you won't groom?

I no longer groom Chows. Washing and drying Chow hair is a nightmare that I have decided to avoid. My apologies to the Chow owners that are looking for a groomer.

* What do you charge?

The price depends on the breed, coat condition, and style you want.

Small dogs (i.e. Shih Tzu, Maltese, Yorkies, Lhasa Apso) start at $45 for a full groom. If you want a style that involves more work such as a Puppy cut or Teddy Bear cut, the price would start at $55.

Medium sized dogs (i.e. Welsh Terrier, Wheaten, Large Cocker Spaniel) start at $55.

Large breed dogs (i.e. Golden Retriever, Giant Schnauzer) start at $80.

The really big breeds (i.e. Leonberger, Newfoundlander) start at $130.

* What payment type do you accept?

Cash or Cheque only.

* Do you take students?

I don't have the space to teach. I do give lessons on how to maintain your dog's coat between groomings and how to clip their nails. Any of my clients may request a session, free of charge.

* Do you board dogs?

No. I don't have a kennel license.

* Can I meet with you and view your facilities?

No. I do not give interviews so that people can decide if I am capable or worthy. It is a big waste of my precious time. This is not a facility, it is my HOME. The only characters allowed to inspect my home are the dogs. Trust me, your baby is my baby too!
