Bath, Brush, Nails

Service includes a bath with gentle shampoo. After drying your poochie gets a thorough brushing and combing to remove excess fur and minor mat removal if needed. Nails are trimmed and ears are cleaned. Any long hair on the feet, eye area, sanitaries, or ear openings is trimmed. A light all over trim can be added to this service for breeds like Golden Retrievers, Shelties, Australian Shepherds, and Pomeranians. We finish up with a scented cologne and bandana or bow. Anal glands can be externally expressed by request only.

Full Grooming (hair cut)

Service includes everything in a Bath, Brush, Nail service with the addition of a nose to tail hair cut customized for your poochies needs and your style preference. While we are skilled in mat removal we will take the dogs comfort into account. We prefer to put humanity over vanity. If you desire a long, fluffy look we recommend frequent visits, coat type can vary this as some dogs need every other week brushing visits while others can go 6 weeks. Mat removal is an additional charge based on time.

Senior Pets

We have experience working with seniors who may have the onset of doggy dementia, loss of hearing or sight, or pets that have difficulty standing and require two people to make the groom more comfortable. These precious poochies will be worked straight through and made comfortable throughout their visit.

Special Needs

When we talk about these we are referring to dogs that may have sound sensitivity, say other dogs barking make them nervous, or they are timid rescue dogs. We have experience working with rescue dogs, dogs with disabilities like paralysis or seizures, For these dogs we set aside a more private time with less interruptions and noise. Tuesdays are THE BEST days for them, with Saturday being THE WORST.


What is a De-Shed or a Shed out treatment?

These are terms used by various dog groomers to describe the removal of excess undercoat in your double coated breeds like Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, German Shepherds, Huskies, and Corgis. This is a long and detailed process that here at Pristine Poochies is done in the tub with fingers, water, and conditioner.

There are many metal tools used to remove the undercoat but excessive use can irritate skin and damage the guard hair. We still use these tools in moderation once your poochie is dry. This is, unfortunately, not a one and done magical treatment. There will still be loose hair but the amount will be drastically reduced. Shedding dogs are recommended to come at least every 4 weeks to keep the shedding to a minimum. Your vacuum with thank you! This is not a requested service at Pristine Poochies, all double coated breeds receive this as we strive to only do the best work we can do.

Hand stripping

Hand stripping is a technique used on wire haired terriers and can be done on terrier mixes. Prices depend on dog size and frequency of sessions. Hand stripping is a method that is supposed to be done frequently but for pets it is okay to go as long as two months between sessions.
