Grooming FAQs

We always say “beauty isn’t rushed!” At Wag ‘N’ Tails we are always in dog training mode. Education comes first for us in every department.

So this could mean:

  • Stopping the grooming process to train with food treats
  • Slowing down to take a break from the sounds of the clippers or the dryers
  • Recognizing and identifying fear or anxiety

 

We don’t like to take over 4 hours to groom your dog so we will call you if we see that it could be any longer than that. If visits do take that long, than your groomer may have recommendations such as:

  • How to reduce severe matting
  • How to build confidence at home to make the appointment times more smooth
  • It may be suggested that you have a Behavior Modification visit along side of the groom appointment if your dog is bouncy on the table or showing signs of fear or aggression.

The sooner the better! Your pup will be visiting their groomer at least every 6 weeks or so for their lifetime! It’s important that the bonding and confidence building process starts YOUNG. With our EXCLUSIVE 3 visit puppy package, we will introduce your pup to the world of grooming using our motivational training techniques. All of our groomers are required to have basic knowledge on prevention of fear and confidence building techniques to ensure your pup is off to a good start!

Pro grooming is much MUCH more than just making your dog look good and smell pretty! The skin is the largest organ on your dogs body. There is so much happening on each visit to ensure that your dog is in good health. 

  • Pro groom visits are proven to lower dogs blood pressure and reduce stress
  • Groomers are trained to recognize skin irritations (under all that hair) and recommend veterinary visits when identified.
  • Grooming promotes the health of your dogs skin, coat and teeth.

Every dog is different! It really just depends on the breed of your dog, their temperament and their coat. Typically every 6-8 weeks. Note: Any type of DOODLE Dog is considered a high maintenance grooming dog. This breed mixture is notorious for severe matting.

Bathing – Bathing too frequently will dry out your pet’s skin and strip the natural oils from their coat. Also, bathing at home and washing your pets hair similar to how you wash your own hair, can cause extreme matting of the fur. Your best bet is too brush and comb, opposed to bathing at home in between pro visits.

Nails – If your dogs nails get too long, it hurts! Keep those cute paw pads feeling great with every step and be sure to have the nails clipped every 4-6 weeks.

Cut and Style – To keep up with your dogs standard look that you desire, it’s important to schedule regular visits.

Yes. We understand things happen last minute that may prevent you from making it to your appointment. Please feel free to call or use the portal to re-schedule or cancel any appointment. Appointments canceled less than 24 hours before the scheduled time will incur a cancellation fee of $25.
