My client list is officially closed. This is hopefully a temporary measure to allow me to catch up on creating custom schedules for my existing client list, and to find room for those awaiting their first booking. Client applications remain open, however all applications received from Dec 2020 onward are waitlist applications. They will be pulled in the order they are received, and you will be contacted once there is an appropriate appointment slot available within a reasonable timeframe for your pet/s. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you incur any issues with submitting your application. Wait times will depend on duration of appointment required for your pet/s as well as your availability for appointment scheduling. Current availability for those on the waitlist is between 6 and 12 weeks.
We are located on Coldwater Avenue, across from Home Hardware. You can access the salon from either River Street or Chapman Street through the rear lane. Our sign is visible from both directions. I recommend entering from Chapman with larger SUV's and trucks, as well as in wet or snowy conditions. This allows you to exit your vehicle onto our cleared parking area, instead of the middle of the lane, which can get muddy/icy. It also provides me drivers side access to retrieve your pets from the vehicle for you.
The salon was built with your pet as the primary focus. It is approximately 150 sq ft divided into two separate rooms. I do not have a waiting area, or holding area for pets. A 15-30 minute pick-up window is provided with all appointments. Adhering to drop-off and pick-up times as closely as possible helps keep the salon running smoothly, and ideally eliminates the possibility of coming into contact with another customer. Avoiding distractions, such as other pets or people, also allows the salon to be as safe and low stress as possible.
We offer a full range of professional grooming services. Complete show grooming, easy maintenance trims, custom requests and a-la-carte services such as nail clips and foot trims.
Rest easy knowing that your dog is in the capable hands of a fully certified professional with over a decade of hands on experience in the animal services industry.
Your pet deserves our full, undivided attention! That's why we only book single pets/households at a time. This is particularly beneficial for senior pets and reactive/anxious pets.

*Pricing for grooming services can be roughly estimated via text/email or pre-groom hands on assessment, but due to the many variables involved in grooming, no price can be finalized until completion of the service
Approximate bath/grooming quotes are available by request.
To ensure a more accurate price quote, please provide as much information about your pet's appearance, personality and your desired grooming style preferences as possible. Photos of your pet or of previous grooms are both helpful and welcome!
