If required, a muzzle is the responsibility of the pet owner to purchase.
A $30 assessment fee will apply if the grooming service was unable to be conducted to the dog’s high fear, anxiety, stress level or signs of serious neglect. Groomers discretion.
Payment is due immediately following your appointment. Credit Card is our preferred form of payment (exceptions considered). Gratuities can be added to the total or in cash.
If bathing, we require the use of your bathtub, shower or sink and it should be equipped with a detachable head. If you do not currently have a detachable head, we cannot always guarantee results.
