Grooming is available by appointment only, please give us a call to schedule your furry friend's appointment!

If your pet doesn’t require a full groom, you can book a bath with our kennel staff. Our kind staff members will bathe your pet in a gentle, soap-free oatmeal shampoo (or a medicated bath if necessary), clean your pet’s ears and trim their nails. These visits can also be made by appointment through the front desk.Appointments are scheduled to help minimize cage time during your grooming session.
