Full Groom


Includes, Breed specific styling, bath, nails, ear cleaning oatmeal, whitening or darkening shampoo and conditioner as well as a bandana and lots of love!

Nail Trimming


As the nail grows, so does the quick (this is the soft part in the nail that bleeds when you cut it). The quick dictates how short you are able to take the nail. Nails should be trimmed every 4-6 weeks in order to maintain a healthy length.


Handstripping


Is the process of “plucking” out the coarse top coat of certain terrier breeds and leaving the undercoat. If your Terrier has not been stripped all of its life and/or been Clipped previously, you will not get the same results in the process and in some cases it is not possible and can be painful for your dog.

Anal Glands


Expressing the Anal Glands on a dog is not necessary nor advised if your dog is not having a problem with them. Indications of an issue might be, “scooting” across the floor or biting or chewing in the vicinity. Groomers express glands externally. In most cases this can fix a minor problem. In some cases your dog may need to see a vet due to impaction or infection. Your groomer will advise if this is the case. In general when it comes to glands, “if its not broken, don't fix it!”
