   Can't take your 4 legged family member with you?
No matter what the reason, we will provide a safe, fun and loving environment so your dog is busy and happy, until you return.

Covid 19 updates - Starting May 4 the following rules will apply:

  • All food and treats must be in a disposable container or baggies.  NO LARGE BINS will be accepted and you will be required to transfer food to provided baggies. Excess food may or may not be returned so it is best to leave only the amount needed for your pets stay plus one extra day in case of emergency.

  • Medications can be brought in their original bottles or pre-measured in a pill container.

  • Curbside pick up and drop off only. When you come we will come out and collect your dog and belongings. You will be asked to remove your dogs collar and we will bring them in with our slip leads to prevent any danger of slipping out of their collars. If you call ahead before picking up we can give you your total so you can have your payment ready.

There are many benefits for both you and your dog by having a regular grooming appointment.  Why? 

  • Having someone looking over your dog from head to toe, (skin, toenails, hair, ears, eyes, teeth, glands) can help catch potential issues early.

  • Being handled by a professional groomer helps your dog to be at ease around new people and places.   This is why starting your dog with a professional groomer when they are a puppy is so important!

  • Regular trimming, brushing and dematting are a must for dogs that have growing or longer hair! For dogs that shed, grooming helps to remove dead coat and reduces dander, which also helps you keep a cleaner house & car.


Have your dog professionally groomed during your pets stay with us!
