Pricing
There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Therefore, there is no set pricing for fine grooming. Our groomers set individual prices for each pet, largely based on the time required to complete the chosen service. Factors which determine the price of a service include:

  • Amount of scissor work
  • Brushing
  • Clipping
  • Degree of matting
  • Difficulty of the cut
  • Disposition of the animal
  • Drying time
  • Length of hair
  • Size of pet

However, you will find our prices quite reasonable. We will be happy to quote you a price range over the phone, and we invite your inquiries.

**Additional charges will apply for home visits, pick-up and/or delivery**
