Due to the mobile aspect of my services, I follow the public school closures as they pertain to inclement weather. I will try to work as long as conditions are not dangerous. If you are unsure, please call me to confirm.

  • Given circumstances where I can't make an appointment, every effort will be made to reschedule at a time convenient to you.  

2. Missed appointments 

It is considered a missed appointment when the pet is not made available at the scheduled appointment time and there was a in lack communication to cancel or reschedule.

What is your experience?

What I need from you and your pet?

I have been running my mobile pet grooming business since 2011. Before starting my business, I worked at Petsmart for 2 years, after completing the Petsmart Salon Academy training program.

 

I am certified by the National Dog Groomers Association of America in both sporting and non-sporting groups.

I regularly attend classes for continued education and to stay current with industry standards.

For the groom, I just need a place where I can park my van for the duration of the groom. My van is completely self contained so I don't need access to any resources from you. 

For your first appointment with me you are required to be there in person but any appointment after that, I only need your dog!

Safety is a priority to me so I require proof of vaccinations for dogs prior to grooming. Dogs must be current on Rabies, DHPPv/DA2PPv (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, parvovirus) and Bordetella. 

*On a special needs basis, with a veterinary note, some exclusion will be permitted.
