In our grooming area, we use all natural shampoo's, conditioners, and products on the dogs. Our grooming area is meant to be a low-stress environment, where dogs can hang out or go in kennels, depending on what they prefer. We do our best to keep it that way throughout the day, although the pups do get pretty excited for visitors! We use essential oils in a diffuser to help keep humans and dogs feeling nice and chilled and we give dogs breaks when needed!
We will estimate a time for pick up, but may waiver on it due to taking our time and keeping everyone happy! Our goal is to help dogs enjoy the grooming experience, beyond just getting through it every 6-8 weeks!
Price quotes are given when you inquire because every dog is different and haircuts vary quite a lot too!
If you are more than 15 minutes late for your grooming appointment you will be charged a $10 late fee, and there is no guarantee that we will be able to take you for the appointment. As with all our grooming appointments we schedule them for certain times to be able to fit them all in during our open hours. Therefore if you cannot make it on time we might not be able to fit the groom in our day. If you are going to be late, give us a call and let us know at 403-454-7342 and we can wave the late fee or reschedule you if it will be too late in the day.
We quote grooms to take 3-4 hours on a regular sized dog. Giant breeds and some large breeds may take longer, we can give time quote upon arrival.
If you would like an Expressed groom (2 hours or under) you may pay a $21 express fee.
Grooming can be very scary as well as overwhelming for a puppy who has never experienced it or an adult dog who has never had a good association to it.
Which can make it extremely difficult when you need to have your dog groomed so they don't become matted. When a dog becomes matted it pulls the hair which then pulls the skin and causes your dog pain. In extreme cases, it can even cut circulation off to certain parts of a dogs body.
This is why we have started the train to groom package! Any age of dog can use this service, but its best fit is for puppies under 5 months old or any dog who has a bad association to grooming and have been turned away from other groomers.
Train to groom is a training package that is catered to grooming, it is a little different for each dog because each dog is so unique in their needs, for example, if your dog is more nervous of the dryer then the clippers we will spend more time building a positive association to the dryer. Our goal is to help Fido learn that grooming doesn't need to be scary and to help them get used to a regular schedule.
Once you purchase this package you will receive 5 full days of daycare while with our certified trainer. During those days we will introduce your puppy to many different grooming tools that might normally frighten a puppy while pairing them with super high-value treats and building positive associations so that future grooms for your puppy won't seem so scary.
At the end of 5 days of daycare spread out over 5 weeks your puppy will receive its first groom that is included in the cost of this package. You will also receive 10% OFF grooming for the life of your puppy!
Once you purchase this package you will receive 5 full days of daycare while with our certified trainer. It is a little bit different for adult dogs who don't enjoy grooming. We will first build a positive association with us and being here at BBF so the first day is just a fun hangout day while they learn that being here equals good things. The next 4 days while they are with us we will work on what they really don't enjoy (having nails done, being blow dried) and pair it will super yummy treats. We will be going at your dog's pace and listen to them when they are saying its too much.
