Our Grooming Process

professional groomers assess dog health and discuss options with pet owners
1. Consultation & Hands-on Assessment of Your Pet

Our highly trained pet stylist assesses your pet’s health, skin and coat condition and makes recommendations based on your pet’s needs. They may discuss specialized services such as skin care regimens to best suit your pet, so we encourage you to ask questions and bring forward any concerns you may have regarding your pet’s health and hygiene during the consultation.

Bath and massage with shampoos and conditioners specially formulated for dogs
2. Bath & Massage (& Additional Services If Requested)

Your pet stylist starts with a relaxing bath for your pampered pooch. The bath is the best time for us to love on your pet! Your pet receives a relaxing massage while they’re shampooed using some of the best, most nourishing products on the market! Each pet receives shampoo and conditioner that is mixed specially for them.

Many of our additional services such as tooth brushing, anal gland expression and deshed treatments are performed during this stage as well.

3. Drying

Drying your pet is the lengthiest part of the grooming process. While many pets are fully accustomed to the grooming process, some require a little extra attention. All of our dryers have variable intensities, allowing us to decrease the noise level and speed of air for pets less accustomed to grooming or those who suffer from anxiety. We strive to give each pet the best care possible while relieving any stress they may have.

brush-out, nail trimming and ear cleaning are all part of regular grooming
4. Brushing, Nails and Ears

Every pet will receive a brush-out consistent with its needs. Depending on coat type and condition, time can vary greatly is this area. All dogs will get a nail trim and Dremel filing during their spa treatment, as tolerated by the dog. 

Dremeling is a more natural way of trimming your pet’s nails and allows us to ensure they are as short as possible and without cracking or splitting the nail. Your pet’s ears are cleaned during this stage as well, and ear hair can be plucked or shaved out by request.

finishing touches - haircut or trim, color, shave, cologne and other additional services
5. Finishing Touches

Whether your pet needs just a few hairs trimmed, or an overall haircut, our professional pet stylists will make sure your pet leaves looking, feeling and smelling great! After their trim, pets will be freshened with cologne and may be given a bow or bandana to wear home. If you wish to skip the cologne, just let us know.

Select locations also offer additional services like adding color and nail polish. Contact a pet grooming salon near you to learn if these services are available in your area.

How often should I get my dog groomed?

  • Every 4-6 weeks for dogs with long hair or double coats.
  • Every 6-8 weeks for dogs with short hair or smooth coats.
  • Every 2-3 weeks for puppies, as this allows us to take extra time to train your puppy and get them used to the process. 

 Why do dogs need to be groomed often?

Consistent grooming helps prevent matting and knots. With a proper grooming schedule and consistent brushing, you can prevent matting, saving you from dematting fees and excess hair accumulating on your floors. Dematting can also be painful for your pet, and could require a full shave to rectify if their coat isn’t properly maintained.

Regular grooming also makes the process go more smoothly. Pets become more accustomed to the groomers, salon and grooming process and have less anxiety than pets who come infrequently. It’s best for your pet to see grooming as a regular routine, not a punishment, and it’s much more difficult to accomplish if you only bring your pet when there are issues to resolve.

Dog grooming at Smoochie Pooch - how frequently to take your dog to a professional dog groomer

The time required to groom a pet largely depends upon their coat condition which is affected by their grooming frequency and how well they’re cared for between visits. The more time required to groom a pet, the more expensive your grooming session may be. Scheduling your pet at regular intervals allows us to efficiently treat your pet and keep costs low

Frequent visits also provide an opportunity for your groomer to discover and resolve skin and coat issues more quickly, making treatments easier, quicker and more affordable, not to mention the most important part – keeping your pet happy and healthy.
