A bath and tidy consist of; A bath, blow dry, nail Trim, cleaning of the ears, clear hair from Sanitary areas such as groin and bum, trimming the feet and featherings; as well as cleaning up eyes and face.
A kennel cut leaves the entire body one length all over leaving the head, face and tail to scissor. Depending on your preference there are different lengths of kennel cuts.
Starting at about a 1/4" and ranging to as short as 1/16″ there are even shorter but normally aren’t recommended to be used unless the dog has extreme matting and has no other alternative.
A lamb clip leaves the back, neck and belly a shorter length (about 3/8″ or 1/4”) and the head, tail and legs are hand scissored and left neatly formed and fluffy. Again, this hair style can be left longer or shorter depending on personal preference
A teddy bear clip is normally leaves the “Long and fluffy” look. The length is normally a 1/2 inch or longer and completely scissored. Keep in mind that under certain circumstances a teddy bear can be adjusted in length to suit the owner’s preference and can be shortened but maintain the “long and fluffy” look.
A breed clip is basically the specific hairstyle your specific purebred dog would have. Each breed would have their own style and would be either a scissored or a clipped pattern.

A clip that is not a standardized breed clip. This clip is really more of an extension of you and your groomer's creative side and can entail just about anything your mind can think up.

All Full Grooming Services Include:
Scared, Stressed or Shy?
Our goal is to make the grooming experience as enjoyable as possible for your pet, NOT to push them beyond their limits
If you pet exhibits signs of distress during a grooming session, your pet maybe sent home unfinished. Your pet will only receive services that he/she can handle until we gain their trust.
Did you know that half of dogs over the age of 8 show one or more signs of cognitive dysfunction–a diagnosis very similar to to Alzheimer’s disease in people?
We will not make an older or infirm pet do what I need to do without helping the pet out. This may mean needing the assistance of another professional to help in supporting the animal or giving the pet a more practical hairstyle. You may be asked to bring your pet more often – an hour of grooming is sometimes as much as an older pet can handle.
We will groom unaltered dogs/cats except for females in heat. However, daycare option is not available for unaltered dogs.
