We Provide Grooming Packages

Luxury Grooming Packing

This package is perfect for pets who suffer from itchy, dry, flaky skin:

  • First, we massage your pet with Soothing Specialty Shampoo especially formulate for dry, itchy skin.
  • Then your pet's coat is drenched in remoisturizing conditioner and wrapped in a warm towel to help the moisturizers penetrate and replenish the coat's natural beauty and manageability.
  • We brush your pet's teeth with specially formulated pet toothpaste to improve the breath and increase circulation in the gums.
  • The coat is then thoroughly rinsed with warm water and finished with an aromatherapy finishing rinse in your choice of lavender, sweet orange, rose or tea tree oil.
  • Your pet is then fluff dried with a massaging flow of warm air, and thoroughly brushed to remove dead hair and tangles.
  • Our groomer will then complete a custom designed cut for your special friend, suited to the breed, coat and length which works best for your lifestyle.
  • The package will finish with bows or a bandanna and a treat.

Pampered Puppy Package

This package is only offered to puppies aged 6-20 weeks. It is just right for the first few grooms and includes lots of love, individual attention, and training.

You can expect the following when you schedule this package:

  • Your pet will be bathed with gentle, tearless shampoo specially formulated for your pets and their sensitive skin.
  • A warm water rinse will remove shampoo and dead skin and debris from the coat.
  • Your pet's coat will be fluff dried with a massaging flow of high-velocity air and thoroughly brushed to remove dead hair and small tangles.
