Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How long does a grooming session take? With a haircut, about an hour-and-a-half to two hours. Without a haircut, about an hour.
  2. How do you bathe the dogs? Small dogs get bathed in the kitchen sink. I take larger dogs to a self-serve pet bathing station.
  3. What products do you use? I use all natural shampoos and conditioner.
  4. What requirements do you have? I need to have proof of an up-to-date rabies vaccination for each pet.
  5. Have you ever had to turn an animal away? Yes, sadly. Once there was a miniature poodle too nervous for me to touch. And then there was an aggressive border collie mix. Other than these two, I’ve never turned a pet away since starting as a groomer in 2007.
  6. Do you walk dogs? I’m not currently doing dog walking but am open to the possibility.
  7. Can you make a deal to groom two or more pets during the same visit? Certainly. Grooming parties are fun for all.
  8. Which do you prefer, dogs or cats? I was more accustom to being around dogs in the past, but since I’ve gotten to know cats, I love them too. In fact, I just love all animals.
