Safety Precautions and Guidelines
Safety, Procedures & Pricing
Full Groom or Bath Appointments
Bath & Grooming appointments are usually 2 to 3 and half hours for small dogs. For large dogs, longer coats, special styling cuts, breed clips or very matted fur, it can be 4 hours or more.
Bath & Brush
Bathing and brushing appointments can take from 1.5 hours up to 3 hours depending on the size of your pet and the length of their coat.
De-matting requires extensive brushing time for de-matting and extra brushing prices start at $30.00 per hour charge. Prices vary depending on breed, size, length and condition of coat.
No walk-ins at this time. No exceptions. Nail trims will only be done during bath appointments or grooming appointments.
A Priority Groom is only offered on designated days at 8:30am. Your pet will be groomed first and will be first out the door. Long and thick coated dogs will take slightly longer to dry. Pet’s needing brush outs and shave downs are not eligible for priority groom. The groomer has full discretion to reschedule your appointment for any reason up to post groom inspection or without notice.
The safety of our clients and employees are our top priority during the current pandemic. Please understand that grooming will be longer now than compared to before. I will be taking every precaution to ensure my elderly and at-risk customers can feel safe and confident having their pet groomed at Deirdre’s Pride & Groom.
Extended Wait Times
The length of time it takes to groom your pet will be slightly longer than before due to the COVID-19 safety protocols. If you would like your pet groomed first please choose Priority Groom when making an appointment.
For the health and safety of our staff we will be using face masks when we approach your vehicle. To protect everyone’s safety we ask all our clients to wear face mask when dropping off your pet as well. If you are not feeling well or have someone who is not feeling well in your family, please call us to reschedule your appointment.
Cancellation & No-show
Cancellations must be made 12 to 24 hours prior to your appointment date and time. If you cannot make your appointment, call and let us know so we can book a different client for your slot. I am taking a limited number of pets per day due to COVID-19 precautions and I need to fill every appointment slot. Emergencies happen and we understand. That being said, any late cancellations and/or no-shows will be charged a $40 fee and/or may be barred from services at Pride & Groom for habitual offenders.
