Dog Grooming FAQs

We require that dogs are up-to-date on the following vaccines before their grooming appointment:

  • Rabies
  • Bordatella (kennel cough)
  • Distemper

We must see proof of vaccination BEFORE we can schedule a grooming appointment. The first thing you should do is send us your vaccination records by emailing a copy to (or requesting your vet to email them). Once we have confirmation that your dog is up-to-date on required vaccinations, contact us to schedule your appointment! 

We do not accept titers in lieu of vaccinations. 

The price of a grooming service is primarily determined by the size and breed of the dog. Additional fees may be charged if the time it takes to groom your dog is significantly increased due to the condition of their coat (extreme matting or debris) or their temperament. 

Dogs should be dropped off as close to their scheduled appointment time as possible and picked up within an hour of when you receive a phone call that their groom is complete. 

A Kennel Resource Fee of $10.00 will be added if you drop your dog off more than an hour before their scheduled appointment time or pick them up more than an hour after you receive a phone call that they are finished. 

If you would like to leave your dog at the facility for an extended period of time (eg. dropping them off before work and picking them up after), we recommend adding daycare service ($22) for the same day they are receiving their groom. This way they will be able to go outside and play multiple times throughout the day in addition to being groomed.

Grooms generally take between 1.5 hours and 3 hours depending on the dog. Ask your groomer for a time estimate at check-in. 

Appointment slots for grooming are available Monday – Friday starting at 8:00am, with the last appointment available at 1:00pm.

Occasional weekend appointments are accepted on a case-by-case basis.

If possible, it is best to schedule an appointment for a nail trim, but we do accept walk-in nail trims on Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 2:00pm. 

Of course, the groomer goes on vacation or occasionally leaves early if there were appointment cancellations, so it is recommended that you call ahead to confirm that the groomer is on site before coming in for a walk-in nail trim. 

If you need to cancel your grooming appointment, please let us know at least 24 hours prior by calling 218-829-1902.

If you do not show up for your scheduled grooming appointment without calling to cancel, you will be required to pay a deposit at booking moving forward.
