Coming to a Driveway Near You


All services provided will be evaluated and personalized for each customer.  In my high-tech, climate controlled professional grooming van, your dog will not be exposed to any other pets while he or she is being groomed.  Hygiene, gentle TLC and customer convenience are my top priorities!

Service will include sanitary trim, feet (between pads and foot shaping), nail trimming, ear canal cleaning, shampoo/conditioning and full blow dry by hand (vs all day "cage drying"), followed by clipping/scissoring patterns as needed.  If you have a short haired dog, a full body de-shedding process is included.

Though I groom all breeds, I specialize in shetland sheepdogs and blowing out dead undercoats to reduce shedding and promote a healthy shiny coat.

Pricing varies by breed, time provided, travel distance and service requested.  Minimum fee for my van to show up at your residence is $85.  Prices then range up through $180 per appointment.  Weight, style and  pet's disposition all play a part in the fee that will be determined and discussed at your first appointment.

*ONE TIME ONLY* appointments are discouraged.  I have developed a very special bond and lifelong relationship with all of my clients and see everyone on a routine basis.  For your convenience, your next appointment will always be scheduled before I leave your driveway.
