Grooming 101

We understand that our clients aren’t groomers. Here’s a few common grooming terms we may use from time to time, so you always know exactly what to expect!
Haircut

A specified haircut, up to an inch long depending on the condition of the coat and breed. May also be referred to as a “puppy” or “teddy bear” cut. Maintenance can range from 4-8 weeks, depending on the level of upkeep done at home.

Scissor Cut

More time-consuming than a standard cut, due to the skill level required to achieve a clean, precise finished look. This cut can only be achieved with a non-matted coat between 1-1.5 inches in length. Maintenance between appointments is recommended every 2-4 weeks to keep your pet’s coat from matting.

Shed-less Bath

Helps to reduce the amount of dead hair, undercoat, and dander on your pet for a healthier, shinier coat.

Tidy Trim

Includes a bath, sani trim, trimmed or shaved paws, and trimmed face. Great as an interim grooming service between regular haircuts.

Outline Trim

Maintaining your pet’s coat with a neat appearance. Includes trimming of the front feathers, feet, underline, britches (pants or bottom hair), and chest.

Sanitary Trim

Trimming or shaving of the belly and private sanitary areas.
