Dogs should either be carried, leashed, or responsive
to voice command upon entering the grooming shop.


All prices are based upon dogs in good to fair condition. Base prices are subject to increase when a coat is matted and requires extra brushing or clipping or when extra time is taken to handle older dogs, puppies, or dogs that are aggressive. Because of the use of the best in shampoos and conditioners and the time it takes, luxury spa or skin and flea treatments reflect a higher cost. If you are concerned about the prices, please get a quote before grooming.

The following prices include a bath, nails, and haircut. They are also dependent on coat conditions and the amount of hand scissoring involved. If your dog is small or light coated for the breed, we'll of course charge less, but the opposite is also true.

We want your puppy's first few visits to be as pleasant as possible and will make every effort to do so by starting with the most simple haircuts. Your puppy should enjoy grooming and, to encourage this, a puppy's first haircut is not guaranteed. If you teach your puppy some basic discipline and to be still for brushing, professional grooming will be much easier for both pet and groomer. Tearless shampoo will be used for your puppy's safety.

Aggressive Dogs

We will not groom or bathe dogs that are aggressive or require muzzling for salon treatment.

Older Pets

We will use extra care and patience for older pets; however, we will not be held responsible for any reaction due to the mental or physical stress of grooming the geriatric pet. If, in our judgment, brushing or clipping is determined to cause too much stress to the pet, we will modify or terminate the haircut. Please be sure to notify us of any health conditions that might make your pet uncomfortable during the bathing, drying, or clipping phases.

Late Policy

If unforseen circumstances cause us to be late, we will call and make arrangements for a later discharge. Under our policy: Dogs are expected to be picked up as scheduled. If you cannot make the agreed upon time, please call and allow us to alter our schedule accordingly. Dogs not picked up after several phone-call attempts will be walked, fed, watered, and housed overnight at our salon or at the Pet Motel on 5th St. (434-295-3679) for a boarding fee; minimum $20.00.
