Our purpose is to be of service to you and your pets in the best way possible, however, there are some points which are best laid out first for the benefit of mutual understanding. By engaging in our pet grooming service, you agree to the following terms and conditions:
Thank you for reading and we hope to have your understanding and cooperation. 😇
Of course! Please bring your dog back within 7 days and we will touch it up for free.
When your dog has infection in the ears, the discharge/debris cannot be cleared with grooming. A visit to the vet to find out the cause of the infection is necessary (mites / bacterial / yeast etc.).
During grooming, we will flush the ear canal. However, due to the shape of the ear canal, there can still be debris is the base of the ear canal. When the dog continues to shake, some of the loosened debris can continue to emerge after grooming.
Some dogs excitable or strong dogs can use a lot of force in their hind legs, especially when they’re pulling on the leash. After grooming please refrain from letting your dog pull on the leash on tarmac or other rough surfaces as it will further file down the nails, causing them to bleed.
We will always try to cut your dogs nails as short as possible, but the blood veins call the “quick” determine how long the nails will be. If nails are being left to overgrow, the quick may grow longer in some dogs.
One important point is to check the nails before leaving the salon. However, in most instances, it’s because your pets just don’t realize how strong they are, and when they jump on you, even with blunt nails, they might unintentionally scratch you.
If jumping is a problem, seeking behavioral trainer’s help is important, not only that, it will also help solve a lot of stress, anxiety related issues along with it. I highly recommend every dog owner to give behavioral training a try.
A dog’s coat gives them a sense of security and after a complete shave down, they may feel insecure and out of place.
Especially when your dog had to be shaved down because of severe tangling of the coat, before shaving, the tangles will have put tension on your dog’s skin, like someone grabbing your hair. After shaving all that tension gets released, creating an unfamiliar sensation to your pet, which may cause your dogs to lick and chew on themselves.
It’s good to give your dogs something to wear, a lot of play-time also helps to distract them from any insecurity they might be feeling. You may also want to use an Elizabethan Collar if necessary, to prevent them from biting or licking themselves excessively. So please make sure your dog’s coat is properly maintained, and shave only for health considerations – e.g. requested by the vet, flea and tick infestation etc.
*If excessive licking and scratching is not prevented, serious wounds may form.
Some pets are sensitive to having their butts shaved. If you observe that scooting is a common occurrence after grooming, please notify your groomer to not shave this area. Anal gland expression in some instances can also cause them to feel uncomfortable.
Some dogs will get uncomfortable after their ear hair is been pluck out, they feel compelled to shake their head. Prolonged and excessive shaking of their heads can cause blood to fill the tip of their ears causing Ear Hematoma – an accumulation of blood under the skin of the ear flap. On mild cases, it will show up as bruising, on more severe cases, it may cause swelling.
It’s important to not let your dog shake its head excessively after grooming. Taking your dog for a walk before going home is a good way to allow your dog to release any emotional tension that has built up from the grooming. You can also cut off the closed section of an old sock or cut off a sleeve of an old shirt and use it as a sleeve over your dog’s ears to prevent the ears from bruising from excessive head shaking.

After the tangles have been removed, your dog may sense that his ears feel different. Their reaction is to shake their head to see if that the sensation goes away. However, the shaking usually causes a vicious cycle as more blood will accumulate at the tip of the ears causing more irritation. Ear Hematoma may occur as a result and in very rare cases, swelling may occur which will require the Hematoma to be drained by the vet. It is critical to stop any compulsive behaviour after grooming like scratching or shaking their head to prevent your pets from injuring themselves.
Tear staining is akin to hair being dyed and cannot be removed by grooming. It’s important to find out the cause of your dog’s tearing. It can be because of an obstruction of the tear ducts, allergies, hair going into the eyes etc. When the tearing stops so will the stains.
