We have been voted the 1st Place for “Favorite Groomer” in the Rural Virginian’s Reader’s Choice multiple times.
Our philosophy is to provide a good groom in a kind, positive atmosphere for your dog while maintaining professional and safe grooming practices. We know most dogs will have to be groomed for their entire lives, and we want them to have the most pleasant experience possible.
As we are a small shop with just 3 groomers we get to know your dog and what you want for a finished look. We do not rush through grooming the dogs. Unlike big grooming businesses or mobile groomers we aren’t limited by having to complete the entire groom within a limited block of time to be able to move on to the next dog. For this reason, we can take time for the extra care needed for puppies, nervous or senior dogs. Puppies with short attention spans and senior dogs with mobility issues commonly experience difficulty standing for extended periods of time, and benefit from the opportunity to take periodic breaks throughout the grooming process.
Most dogs enjoy their stay with us as a “Spa Day”. They get outside for potty walks, sleep or enjoy watching the “goings-on” of the activity in their grooming room.
We are a full service grooming shop. Our hair-cuts and baths include nail trimming, ear cleaning and 15 minutes of brushing. We will use a Furminator at no extra charge. Nail Trimming is available on a “walk in” basis, Monday – Saturday, 10:00 – 4:00, after 4:00, call ahead. We also trim cat nails, but recommend you call ahead for the best time.
Why We Can’t Quote Exact Prices
There are so many variables when it comes to grooming a dog that cannot be gauged over the phone, including the dog’s personality, anxiety level, age, or excitability, or condition of coat. We will give a price for the size and type of cut you want for your dog, but prices given are just a starting point. Pricing will be more accurately determined with the groomer at the time of the appointment.
For the health and safety of our groomers and the other dogs, we require proof current Rabies vaccine which shows the expiration date. Puppies are required to have completed the series of 3 DHLPP (Distemper) shots. We highly recommend all dogs have the DHLPP (Distemper) shot, and Bordetella vaccine.
Grooming is available by appointment, Monday – Saturday.
To maintain the most efficient scheduling for you and your dog’s needs, our groomers book their own appointments. Discuss any questions, concerns or time constraints with the groomer when booking your appointment.
