What you can expect ?
Firstly staff will meet you at reception and will gather and share information about your dog and the pending groom.
It is important at this stage to share as much information with the groomer about what you would like so we can both be sure of what to expect later.
At this point if your request is not in the best interest of the dog due to matting, temperament and weather conditions staff will discuss and recommend other options. Please keep in mind every dogs physique and coat is different so what you may see on another dog may look completely different on yours.
From reception we will ask you to leave and will give you a time to return. Even though your dog may seem unsure at this point once you leave the building most likely your dog will settle almost instantly and be happy comply with our requests.
We like to keep the salon in a quiet and calm state, to do so the dogs have their own crates and are not free to run about.
The other difference with Pets by Design is we usually have the dog free on the table while working on them instead of using grooming loops. This takes good management techniques to keep the dog controlled.
For nervous dogs we use Bach Flower remedies which are totally natural and very effective. Our other calming tool is a simple ‘ neck sock’ which gives calming reassurance to the dog.
Grooming can involve some or all of the following.
Coat prep, deshed, Brushouts, blowouts, handstriping, bathing, special shampoos, flea washes, external anal gland expression, drying (3 stages) Coat Styling , nail trimming, sanitary clips, ear clean and or plucking.
We ask that you allow 3 hours for each groom, if it is estimated to take less time a pickup time will be given to you before you leave.
The 3 hours is so the dog is not stressed with having to be hurried and gives us as groomers the chance to do the best groom we can.
If you come back before your given time this will generally unsettle your dog and will then take us longer to complete.
We do try to keep to our scheduled times however the art of dog grooming is highly unpredictable and patience is required by both groomers and owners.
Once complete your dog will enjoy quiet time in a crate until pickup time
