Can you groom my dog to the breed standard?
Yes, we are familiar with most of the breed standards and are very experienced with the more popular breeds. Many clients do not groom to the breed standard because of the level of maintenance required. If you would like to get your dog groomed to the breed standard, it is helpful to review with the groomer the home maintenance involved between salon visits.
Each dog is different and each person’s needs vary. So a consultation can help you know your options, to decide accordingly.
Can I bring in a picture?
Yes. We’ll talk it through with you to discuss the grooming options and, if possible, we’ll try to get to the same result for your dog.
What are anal glands?
The real answer is something you don’t want to deal with at home. They are the scent sacs right under a dog’s tail. Some dogs empty them naturally, some do not. Your groomer can check if they need to be emptied (expressed).
Please let us know if you prefer that your veterinarian does this or if you do not want us to express the glands.
