Before Your Visit Tips:

  1. Make sure your pet has had ample time to relieve themselves before leaving home and before check-in. Pick up your pets waste.

  2. Brush your dog to remove mats or tangles, this will save on your grooming bill. ;)

  3. Exercise your dog before coming. A brisk walk or a game of fetch will release built up energy and make grooming easier.

  4. All pets must be on leash or in a carrier at all times on the property.
