What to expect when you bring your pet to see us

The Bath – Each pet is checked prior to bathing to determine the type of shampoo to be used. We use only high quality shampoo’s and conditioners. The Basic shampoo is Life’s Abundance Revitalizing Shampoo. We also use Groomer’s Edge, Furminator deShedding Shampoo & Conditioner and Davis products. There will be an extra charge for flea treatment and medicated skin care treatments.

We use The Bathing Beauty Dog Washing System that gives a nice deep down massaging bath that gets pets their cleanest. An added bonus is the Hydro-massage. Dogs love the therapeutic hydro-massage and will be more relaxed for their entire visit; it’s great for relaxing all dogs and especially good for older dogs with arthritis. A coat conditioner finishes the bath. Anal glands are expelled only if warranted & requested by you. An extra charge of $ 4.00 will be added to the grooming price.

The inside of the ears are cleaned with Life’s Abundance Herbal Ear Care Formula that eliminates odor, dissolves ear wax and removes dirt and debris by bringing it to the surface. NO alcohol. It also soothes the ear during application and long after. If pet has hair that needs to be removed from the ear canal that is also done. I will Not pull every strand of hair because I believe hair is here for a reason. I recommend having a bottle for home use.

All pets are fluff-dried by hand to give the coat a nice fluffy look, this makes for a better finished appearance.

Nail trims are included with the bath. *A nail puff and polish can be added.

The Trim & Style – Your dog will be trimmed to your request (only If the coat is in very good condition and can be brushed out) or if you prefer, I will select the most popular and fitting style for your dog. An additional charge will apply to special conditions requiring unusual time and effort. These include: duration time between grooming, age, difficulty and temperament and severely matted and knotted coats. As a grooming professional, I may refuse to de-mat a coat for the sake of comfort and safety to your dog.

All dogs will receive either one of my homemade bandannas, bows, collar scrunchy or one of my unique holiday accessories and finished with a spritz of wonderful smelling cologne of Bath Fresh Mist from Life’s Abundance. Bath Fresh Mist is a great product to have at home for that Fresh spa smell.

De-matting of Dogs

Very old dogs and very young dogs cannot be de-matted if they can not tolerate the time it would take. Extremely matted coats on dogs will require shaving very close to the skin. NO Exceptions. Some dogs have hard to remove mats in certain areas on their bodies that can be brushed out, however shaving is them out may be necessary. Often, in the process of grooming, your dogs’ skin may become irritated due to the tremendous amount of brushing required on a coat which has been improperly cared for over a period of time. Regular grooming visits will prevent the need for this type of grooming service. Also, please note there is an additional charge for this service and we will try to provide a price quote within range depending on the time required. If for some reason I am unable to stay within this price quote range, I will attempt to contact you for your authorization. If I can not reach you, I will do what is best for your dogs’ skin and coat health.
Spotts Grooming WILL NOT and CAN NOT be held responsible for an injury due to lack of home grooming care. Please make sure I have a phone number where you can be reached during the day. De-Matting Charges $1 per min (dogs that are used to grooming) $2 per min for Elderly or puppies. We care for safety of your dog.
