A thorough examination
of your dog’s coat and skin is performed. Checking for any
fleas, ticks, or skin problems. This also includes a thorough
hands on check for any pre-existing conditions that might not be
apparent to the owners. For example, lumps, bumps, ear infections,
broken or cracked toenails, and anything that is visible to the
naked eye, which the owner should be made aware of. *
We will then check the
dog’s coat to see the condition and the amount if any of matted
coat. Whether or not your dog requires or you ask for any special
shampoos or conditioners, and an estimated time it will take to
complete your dog’s grooming for the day.
This will then determine the estimated price we will give
you at check in.
We thoroughly pluck the hair out of
the ear canal and clean the ears. Carefully cut toenails, and file
them with an electric nail file, to prevent them from not only
snagging their owners clothes, but from doing any damage to their
skin by scratching themselves with rough edged nails. Next we
completely de-mat your dogs coat in an effort to make the
dematting process as comfortable as possible. This is the
time that any “pre-clipping” is done providing your dog
requires it for his/her trim. Then
off to the tub we go!
