Gentle Pet Grooming for Dogs and Cats
Grooming is available Monday through Friday. Please drop your pet off between 8-9 am. We will try our best to accommodate pick up times or we will call you as soon as your dog or cat is ready. We exclusively use Nature's Specialty shampoos and conditioners. They are gentle, work great and have a long lasting scent.
BATH & BRUSH: Includes a bath in Nature's Specialties shampoo, toe nail trim, ear cleaning, glands express and brush out. There is no scissor or clipper work in a Bath & Brush. We will remove any mats and this will include a small trim charge.
GROOM: Includes a Bath & Brush as well as trimming of feet, feathers and ears. Plus a sanitary cut unless other request made.
SUMMER SHAVE: Includes a Bath & Brush as well as #7 shave on the body (this leaves about 1/8 of an inch of hair and a nice, smooth look) with tail and ears trimmed unless other request made.
RATE: Prices are based on breed, coat length & condition, size of dog & amount of clipper work versus scissor work (scissor work is more time consuming & costs a little more than clipper work). Please call for an estimate for your dog, but remember these are only estimates. Additional charges are also made if it is necessary to dip a dog for fleas or ticks. ABOUT OUR GROOMERS:
Colleen has been with us since March of 2012. She has over 30 years of grooming experience. She specializes in hand scissoring but has experience in all breeds and clipper work as well.

What do I bring from home?
Feel free to bring anything from home to make your pet's stay more comfortable. We've seen it all so don't worry whether you should bring it or not! Please label everything you bring. One note, please don't bring anything you'd be sad if your dog decided this would be a good time to tear it up! We have plenty of bowls so there's no need to bring those along. Forgot something? We've got chews, treats, toys and food in the Camp Store.
You are more than welcome to bring your food from home or use ours, Nature's Variety. It's helpful if you pre-portion your food into zip locks but it's not a requirement.
We take medication administration very seriously. Help us by sorting, pre-portioning and making notes for us, as it applies.
