It’s very important to note that the grooming industry is currently unregulated by a federal government agency. (state and local governments require very basic safety practices to be licensed and monitor compliance by an unannounced annual inspection) Virtually anyone can purchase equipment and call themselves a Pet Groomer! Each individual grooming business must decide how they will operate and become successful. Most shops maximize profits by using an assembly line model which includes the use of unsafe Cage Dryers. We took a stance against the use of these enclosed automatic dryers and tried our best to educate pet parents about the risk associated with their use. Since day one, we have dried each dog BY HAND w/high-velocity unheated dryers which eliminates any possibility of accidental overheating and burns to the skin. Without the typical assembly-line model where dogs are caged all day awaiting the next step in their grooming process, our appointments are completed one-on-one in under 2 hours (avg time) and your baby is on his way back home! Individual 6’x6′ pet suites are provided short-term until pick-up.
