Our pet groomers first priority is the comfort and safety of your pet.
We are well trained in how to handle nervous, young, old and first-time-in-a-grooming-shop clients as well as the seasoned clients.
We offer a full range of grooming services at our Hanover location.
During Grooming each Pet receives a bath, blow dry, ears cleaned, Nails trimmed and a brush-out.
Scissor Trims: Each pet is bathed then fluffed dried and scissored into the desired trim.
Puppy Cuts: This is an all over trim that brings back the youth in your pet. Short but not shaved. The length can be adjusted for the seasons
Deshedding: Love your pet but not the shedding? That's why we use FURminator® deShedding Tools. Shedding is natural and there's no way to eliminate it. But, there is a better way than constantly vacuuming and scrubbing hair off your floor, furniture, clothing and car seats.
Nail Trimmings: We use the Diamagroove Pinnacle file, it keeps nails cool, vibrations are tremendously reduced. Its safe on hands/skin/dog pads. Leaves a great finish on the toenail...safe! It is important to remember that untrimmed nails can cause a variety of problems from scratched up floors for you to deformed feet and back problems for your pet. In some cases, they will actually grow back into the dog's feet. A good indication that nails are too long is a telltale "click-click-click" when walking on un-carpeted areas.
Oral Cleansing: Have your pets teeth cleaned to help get rid of bad breath, plaque, and tartar build up.The pet oral cleansing system designed for dogs and cats of all ages. PlaqClnz Spray and Gel are the only alcohol free pet oral care products that reduce plaque and tartar without brushing. They contain scientifically proven, natural ingredients including Zinc complex, which stops odor formation, interferes with tartar growth and may aid in healing soft tissue. As authorized PlaqClnz Groomers we will use PlaqClnz Spray along with the Oral Irrigator to quickly clean and freshen your pets’ mouth.You'll be encouraged to continue using the at-home PlaqClnz Gel product. You’ll find PlaqClnz Gel or Spray affordable $15.99 easy and comfortable to use thanks to it’s neutral PH and taste-free formula. Even the most finicky dogs and cats will accept PlaqClnz.
Hand stripping: As opposed to clipper and scissor styling is a specialized skill. Do not expect all professional groomers to be skilled hand strippers. We encourage the pet owner desiring the hand strip technique to inquire about the groomer's skill level and experience with hand stripping. Our Hourly Rate for Hand Stripping is $90.00 per hour with a one hour minimum. (We only take Handstrip clients after a consult first)
Dematting: Matted dogs present a special challenge. If the coat can be brushed out with minimal discomfort to the dog, we will do so. (There is an extra charge, however) If we discover the mats are too tight to the skin, or too extensive, the most humane course of action is to shave off the hair and start over. Hair does grow back! Then, we would be happy to show you ways to prevent this from happening again. "Humanity before Vanity".
Express Service: We offer special Thursday evening appointments for pets that need a little extra one on one, with no kennel time. Perfect for senior, special needs or nervous pets.
Please let us know when scheduling.
There is an additional $20.00 fee added to your regular grooming charge.
