Our Groomer

We’re proud to have a patient and loving groomer like Kathy here at our facility who is experienced in all breeds and sizes of dogs.  She takes an incredible amount of pride in her work as is evidenced by the beautiful grooms she’s able to do for our clients.  Yet, what makes her most special is her patience and love for the pets in her care.  It’s rare to find a groomer like her that blends such precision with an endless patience and love for the pets in her care.

Call 910-613-6348 now to book an appointment with Kathy!

Nail Trim

 We use a grooming dremel to file your pup’s nails.  This accomplishes two things – 1) your dog is less likely to have his/her quick cut and 2) your pup leaves with a rounded edge that is less likely to scratch you when he/she jumps up on you.
No appointment is needed for the nail trim if you come in on weekdays between 11:00am and 3:00pm.  At other times, just give us a call before you drop by for the nail trim to make sure we have someone on staff who can take care of your pup’s nails in a timely manner.  Most nail trims cost $10.

 
 

Geriatric Pets

We adore our old/disabled pups and promise to work patiently to meet their needs.  However, we also realize our limitations and will notify you if your dog reaches that threshold where we can no longer safely groom your dog.  In those instances, we’ll recommend your pet’s fur is trimmed at your veterinarian’s office.

Cancellations

Please understand that last-minute cancellations and no-shows impact our groomers’ ability to earn a living.  For this reason, we must insist that cancellations be made 24 hours prior to the time of the appointment so we can fill your empty time slot with another grooming appointment.  In the event you fail to cancel in a timely manner, a $25 late charge will be added to your next grooming appointment. Clients who arrive more than 15 minutes past their appointment time will be rescheduled and charged the $25 late charge.

Distemper and Rabies

Yes, on your dog's second grooming and beyond!  🙂  Present a valid military ID and you get 10% off your groom.  We love our military!

Grooming will be a routine part of your puppy’s entire life and we strive to make it a pleasurable experience. We recommend starting simple with a bath, nail clipping, ear cleaning, blow dry, and trimming of the face, feet, and sanitary areas for a couple of visits to get your puppy accustomed to grooming.  Our groomer can also give you some tips to work with your pet at home between grooming visits.
You can start your puppy with grooming appointments as early as you and your veterinarian feel is right as your pup will have to get a couple of rounds of puppy vaccines.

No, our groomer puts your pets’ safety first. Your pet will be hand dried nose to tail if your pet is happy with this, however some pets don’t prefer to have some delicate areas blow dried such as the face or ears. Only then will we use a fan on your pet that has no heating element. 

Of course! We want you to feel comfortable leaving your pet with us. Just ask and you can come on in!
