One of our goals is to make your life easier, and we know how hard & messy it can be to bathe your dog at home. So we offer you several options: put on one of our grooming aprons and wash your best friend in our spacious, accessible tubs with temperature-controlled water or let us do it for you.
Check out this fun video clip about how to give your dog a bath courtesy of our friends at metroPUP!
Whether you do it or leave it to us, your dog will be bathed in our Simply Clean and Simply Shiny grooming products and then gently dried off with eco-friendly towels and eyes and ears gently wiped the softest cotton and natural cleansers like witch hazel & tea tree oil. (If your dog needs more than a Basic Bath, you can schedule an appointment with our professional groomer.)
We care deeply about the health of your pets and our environment and have carefully selected grooming products that are gentle, effective, and completely safe for people and dogs (above 6 weeks of age). Everything that touches your dog (and your hands) is as eco-friendly as we can make it. Our bath towels are 100% cotton or bamboo, harvested from sustainable resources. And, to assure your dog smells fresh, we partnered with AmAroma LLC, to infuse Simply Clean and Simply Shiny, our all-natural shampoo and conditioner, with essential oils like bergamot and cedar wood. (If you prefer to bring your own grooming products, you may do so, of course. We have an unscented shampoo available upon request.)
SELF-WASH: $14 for dogs under 30 lbs -- $18 for dogs over 30 lbs
BASIC BATH: $25 - add $5 for oversized dogs (all dogs add $5 daycare if your pup is here for more than 1 hr.)
GROOMING: Variable - please speak with our groomer for details
Self-Wash and Basic Baths available 7 days a week with the last use 1 hour before close. Grooming services, including nails and anal expression, are available by appointment only but not on Sundays.
Dogs who are here for grooming or those with us for more than an hour for a Basic Bath must have current vaccinations, be spayed/neutered, and be on a flea treatment program. We'll work with you to get records from your vet; we also partner with 1st Care Vets who routinely offer high quality, affordable mobile veterinary services.
Having the option to leave your dog in a safe place for an hour or the day (or overnight) can be a real relief when you need to do some shopping or catch up with friends. We offer separate cage-free areas for little and big dogs so they have plenty of space to run and play as well as quiet spots to nap in the sun. Both spaces are well lit by big windows and in full view of our staff; we are never more than steps away from both areas to keep them clean, give out pats and small, healthy treats and head rubs.
We don't discriminate against breed but do need to be certain that there are no bullies and that everyone is up-to-date on their vaccination (rabies, DHPP, bordatella), is on flea treatments and is spayed/neutered. Proof of Rabies vaccination must be on file with us. We can help you work with your vet to get all necessary docs. And, of course, we need medical and contact information. We can provide your dog with any medicines that you provide and can also assure they get special foods as required.
Our ability to assure that your best friend is Safe & Sound while they are with us depends on a free evaluation of their social skills and temperament. Please arrange for an interview so that you can feel good about leaving them with us and we can assure their stay will be a good time for all. Please review our Safe & Sound contract for more information about our policies and standards.
We can set up a schedule for daycare or be ready for those times you need us. We don't have a huge warehouse of space - and prefer it that way - but it does mean that we'd appreciate at least 24 hours notice of your plans. Late pick-up fees will apply after a grace period.
We offer a 20% discount for multiple dogs in daycare with us.
We'd prefer that your pup have stayed with us in daycare prior to boarding.
