We are almost set to announce a soft open! The salon is up and running, you'll just notice a few of our finishing touches are still being worked on.  Please be extra aware at this time that there are NO gates and NO fencing around the building.

Location, Parking and Client Entry

The physical address of the Salon is 1876 Coldwater Avenue. The Salon building is accessed through the rear lane located off River Street. There is a drop-off parking spot next to the Salon building. 

Please Also Note

The salon was built with your pet as the primary focus. It is approximately 150 sq ft divided into two separate rooms.  This means that I have no interior designated waiting area and limited space for additional bodies. Avoiding distractions, such as other pets or people, allows the salon to be as safe and low stress as possible.  Please refrain from knocking or trying the doorknob unless explicitly told your pet is finished and ready for pick-up!  An outdoor porch area with seating will be available in the near future. Please speak softly and gently close gates to avoid tipping your pet off to your arrival! 

About Us

Pet and Show Grooming


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. 

CPPS Certified and WDGS Graduate


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. 

One on One Appointments


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 phone/text/email or pre-groom hands on assessment, but due to the many variables involved in grooming, no price can be finalised until completion of the service

Looking for Prices?

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!

A list of set price services is currently being made.
