It depends on how aggressive your dog is and whether or not he/she will accept a muzzle. Every dog is different and we will do our best to get the job done but we will not put ourselves or your pet at risk. Please see “Things to tell your groomer” resource document on our website.
We will bath your dog using our specialty flea shampoo. This is left on your dog for 10 minutes and will kill any adult fleas on your dog. This service is to protect other dogs in the salon as well. We will charge you extra for this service due to the cost of our products and the extra time and care taken. Please see “Help, my dog has fleas” resource document on our website for more information.

This depends on what is being done but generally, a typical groom (not a bath only) will take approximately 3 hours depending on your dog’s coat length/condition, behavior and size. It is always better to take a little longer than to rush through a groom! Please see “A Day at the grooming salon” for additional information on our website.
