Quality By Design
Our philosophy in The Groom Room is to focus on quality as our top priority. One Dog - One Groomer is our objective. In order to achieve superior quality results, our groomers concentrate solely on your dog during their scheduled appointment. There are no double bookings or assembly line grooming. Your dog has the groomers undivided attention!
By keeping your dog on a regular maintenace schedule, our groomers will develop a strong bond with your dog. This relationship is important to calming nervous dogs or resloving fear issues a dog may have associated with the grooming process. Positive reinforcement and a patient, expert groomer is all it takes for us to provide you and your dog a healthy happy grooming experience.

De-Shedding with ShedLESS
Most people love their dogs and hate the fact that they shed. Some breeds swhed year round, some "blow" their coat twice a year. Every dog can benefit from a good thorough bath, brush and blow dry. However, our double coated friends usually need a little more then the basics. A double coated dog has a top coat and an under coat. The top coat will shed year round. The under coat under normal circumstances will be released on average twice a year for most breeds. The hair you see on your floors and carpets that is in dense clumps is undercoat. The hair that creates dust balls and ends up on your clothes is usually top coat. Top coat shedding can be minimized with regular bathing, brushing and a healthy diet rich in healthy fat and oils- Omega-3 and Omega-6. Undercoat needs to be removed to prevent it from its inevitable journey to your vacuums.
Prices vary depending upon the amount of time needed to de-shed. The average starting price for most double coated northern breeds is $40. The prices are less for regularly scheduled maintenance de-shedding. the average de-shedding session takes about 4 to 5 hours!
ShedLESS can remove 80% of undercoat shedding. The process starts with a bath using special shampoo and conditioner that is designed to loosen the under coat and help detangle it from the top coat for easier removal. After the bath, we use a high velocity dryer to remove and further loosen the coat. Once the dog is dry it's time to brush, brush, and brush some more! We use a process called carding which most people today know as a Furminator brand brush. Carding is the process of using a short bladed brush (like the Furminator) to systematically and safely remove the undercoat without damaging the top coat. The end result is a garbage bag full of hair or more and a dog that is allowed back on the couch!Previous Page
Bath & Brush
ABath and Brush includes a thorough double wash in premium shampoo and conditioner that will revitalize your pets coat. They will be fluff dried to soften the coat and add volume. The top coat is then brushed entirely to complete the look. Their nails will be trimmed and ears cleaned with invigorating canine ear wash.
An exit bath is only available while your pet is boarding with us. It is just a simple wash with regular shampoo to refresh your pet before they return home. They will be dried according to their coat requirements.
All prices listed are estimated starting prices. All prices are subject to change and will be determined upon completion of grooming. The price will vary according to health, temperament, coat type, and coat condition.
