The Groom Room offers highly individualized grooming based on your dog's coat, temperament, comfort with grooming and realistic length/style options. Our groomers are carefully hand selected and intensively trained. They all have many years of professional experience, coupled with exceptional handling skills to support your pet to feel safe in our care and throughout the grooming process. Our goal is to bring out the best in your dog's appearance in a way that keeps grooming safe and comfortable.

COST: 70% OF FULL BODY GROOM FEES (see above)
***RECOMMENDED FOR ALL YOUNG PUPPIES BEING INTRODUCED TO GROOMING!!!
PUPPY PRACTICE VISITS
Young pups require desensitization to grooming that is hard to accomplish at home and outside of a safe and experienced professional environment. Learning windows for dogs, specifically to comfort exposure, start to close as early as 14 weeks. We strongly recommend our youngest visitors have frequent visits for training/handling/practice after their first tidy.
Includes: 2-4 hour social play to learn how to relate to dogs (age dependent), brushing/combing, table practice, blow drier desensitization and that's it! Ideally, weekly visits for a short period of time is a wonderful investment to future comfort and safety for grooming! Unvaccinated pups have a shorter stay and are not directly exposed to other dogs.
COST: $60 plus hst
Includes: bath, blow-dry, de-shed treatment, brushing and comb, ear cleaning, nail trimming, varying amounts of trimming (depending on breed and requirements) *Exceptions will always apply and prices assume a well maintained coat, but this offers a general guideline:
Small breeds (eg: Jack Russell, French Bulldog etc.): approximately $65
Medium breeds (eg: Corgi, English Bulldog etc.): approximately $85 (hand scissoring additional, if applicable)
Large breeds smooth coats (eg: Labrador Retriever etc.): $110+
Large breeds longer coats (eg: Golden Retriever): $180+
XLarge Double Coated coats (eg: Samoyed): $250+
*PLEASE NOTE!!!! Every dog has individual needs; some have thicker or thinner coats, matted or tight coats and some dogs require specialized handling support to ensure the experience is safe if grooming isn't comfortable for them. These needs can impact listed prices.
ADD ON SERVICES

SPECIALTY SHAMPOO: $5 for small-medium sized dogs, $10 for medium-larger sized dogs
MEDICATED BATH FROM VET: $10-$20 depending on duration need of the bath
