WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO GROOM YOUR PETS ON A REGULAR BASIS?

Grooming your dog or cat on a regular basis has many benefits. It keeps your dog or cat healthy and happy.

WE PROUDLY OFFER BLUEBERRY FACIALS

What is a Blueberry Facial and do I need one?

Contrary to what some may believe, a Blueberrry Facial for your pet is not of the same kind you would experience at your local “human” spa. Although a proper grooming facial will employ the same rotating technique of circular movements it does not imply your pet will receive a “scrubbing” like humans do since the main focus is on the hair strands and not the skin.

A Blueberry Facial is an excellent way of getting rid of some tear stains and enhancing the coat’s color naturally while providing a calming, aromatherapeutic experience for your pet. Even though most pet parents think its only appropriate for white hair the truth is that this process is great for all colors and coats.

Simple Yet Powerful

We have found that is always better to apply the blueberry solution after a good deep-coat wash and brush since the calming natural scents will allow your pet to relax and enjoy the rest of the session. Our staff will then get down to the nitty-gritty by providing an enjoyable head and face massage using circular motion throughout the whole face area to allow the solution to penentrate. It is then left undisturbed a couple of minutes to let nature do it’s thing by activating all the powerful antioxidents and allowing then to get down to work, After a good rinse the result is not only brighter, cleaner hair but also strengthened strands that are now better equipped naturally to fight off dirt and stains.

Through regular use you will start to notice that your pet’s face becomes fluffier and able to stay cleaner longer thanks to rich levels of vitamins A, D and E


Holistic Grooming

WHAT IS HOLISTIC GROOMING?

Grooming dogs and cats in a holistic manner merely means giving consideration to the well being of the pet in its entirety. It is more than giving a good bath , dry, and haircut, it is thinking of the pet nas a complex, sensitive, living creature and treating it with a level of respect and kindness that will support it’s mental, psychological and physical well being. A good groom is expected from all professional stylists, but a great groom leaves the pet feeling as good as it looks. How can one accomplish this?

In part, steps would involve working in such a way that the groomer (and grooming staff, where applicable) work together to ensure the well-being of the animals mind, body and spirit. Grooming holistically goes beyond the basic physical work of washing, drying, brushing and trimming an animal’s coat. This discipline of grooming takes the pet’s psychological and emotional needs into consideration, promoting a feeling of comfort and security for the pet during grooming and a feeling of contentment when the process is complete.
