We’re proud to offer a low-stress grooming environment for our canine clients so they can be serviced without the noise and agitation level present in crowded, high-volume pet salons. Our unique grooming service is possible because we groom only one dog at a time, and we enlist everyone’s cooperation in keeping an on-time schedule. This allows our groomers to focus on your pet’s needs and complete the grooming tasks at a pace that works for your pooch. We love being able to give dogs this type of TLC so they can get through a session comfortably and without distress.

Benefits of Regular Dog Grooming
Owning a dog has many rewards, but with the joys come responsibilities, especially with grooming tasks. These are the 10 most tangible benefits of combing, clipping and cleaning furbearing pets. These should be performed on a regular basis, usually every 6-8 weeks for your dog’s comfort, health, and well-being:
- Health. Regular brushing not only promotes a healthy coat, it also reveals problems with the skin. The skin is a major indicator of a pet’s overall health. Finding ticks, scratches or bite wounds helps owners seek appropriate treatment before the problems become more severe. Dry or flaking skin may indicate allergies or medical problems.
- Comfort. Fur mats are uncomfortable for dogs. Routine brushing minimizes the possibility of the fur clumping, especially for long-haired breeds. Brushing your dog more frequently when the seasons change helps prepare the dog’s coat naturally for the upcoming season.
- Pest control. Regular grooming reveals problems with fleas, which breed quickly indoors and infest other pets or people. Fleas can transmit diseases.
- Home maintenance. A pet that’s brushed weekly sheds less fur. During the winter or summer, the hair and dander gets picked up by the HVAC system and can clog the filters. Dirty filters lower HVAC efficiency and can eventually cause system failure.
- Floor protection. When a dog’s nails become too long, they can snag carpeting and furniture or scratch wood floors, and potentially cause foot injuries to the dog. A pet with trimmed claws is also more comfortable to hold, since sharp nails can scratch skin.
- Dental health. Keeping a pet’s teeth clean with a brush or plaque removers increases the pet’s comfort and long-term dental health. A healthy mouth promotes good overall health and is an essential part of regular pet care.
- Vision improvement. Some breeds of dogs have long hair that hangs over their eyes. Clipping the hair that might impede their vision helps them navigate their surroundings better.
