Full Grooming Services
Available by appointment only Tuesday - Saturday, 9:00 - 4:00. Our groomers are skilled in the most popular breeds of family pets. We also offer hand-stripping for terrier breeds, which is a highly skilled craft.
Please note that during the pandemic, the increase in dog ownership combined with the high number of groomers who left their profession entirely, have made for longer wait times than we desire. We are very happy to put new clients on our waiting list and your patience during this time is appreciated. We will do all we can to accommodate your grooming requests in a timely manner.
