Our mission is to offer quality dog grooming to the residents of Bainbridge Island, in a safe and compassionate environment.
Every pet is a unique individual that deserves to look his or her best.
For some, this is targeted to be as close to the AKC breed profile as possible.
For others, the pattern may need to be modified for the comfort of the dog, or owner preferences.
Handstripping is a service we offer and recommend especially for the wire-coated terriers and some sporting breeds.
Dematting is offered on a case-by-case basis. Time and behavior permitting, we will do one “Miracle Makeover Groom.” We will try to educate and equip you so that it needn’t happen again. (Your dog will thank you!) If it looks like shorter clipping will be required, we will make every attempt to notify you and get permission before proceeding.
ShedLess Treatments are also available, and will do the most good on a regular 3-4 week schedule.
Nails are normally filed using a dremel tool, for the dog’s safety and comfort.
