Posh Paws Grooming

Sarah Moon NCMG

     I provide four different services to address the grooming needs of every dog. I specialize in hand scissoring, hand stripping, and show grooming.

~ Blue Ribbon Bath~
This package includes a bath with the proper shampoo and conditioner for your dog's skin and coat needs, ear cleaning and plucking, anal gland expression, nail trimming and filing, 15 minutes of massage and brushing time, and a bandanna or bows. Prices start at $25.

~ Top Notch Tidy Up~
This package is great for a spruce up between grooms. Included is everything in the Blue Ribbon Bath and a trim on the face, feet, tail, and sanitary areas. Prices start at $30.

~ Deluxe Do's~
This package is our most popular selection. Included is a Blue Ribbon Bath and a custom all over hair style. This covers anything from a summer shave down to the full scissored trims. Prices start at $55.

~ Fancy Furminator~
This package is a great alternative to shaving your heavy shedding breeds or having hair all over your house. Included is the Blue Ribbon Bath and an additional 30 minutes of brushing with a variety of brushes including the Furminator. Several clients also add a Top Notch Tidy Up to this package to give their dog that neat but natural look. Prices start at $30.

~ Hand Stripping & Show Grooming~
These two services are more advanced techniques of grooming that can be time consuming based on the condition of the dogs coat. Hand Stripping is a process of removing dogs dead outer and undercoat in order to reveal and preserve the live coats proper texture and color. This keeps your dog looking well groomed but natural with out the damaging effects of clippers.  It is used on many terriers, sporting dogs and other breeds with similar coat types. I do offer show grooming on most breeds with or without ringside preparations. These services are charged on an hourly basis at $60 an hour.

~Additional Fees~
Woolly Worm Fee- If your pup is overgrown and or matted this fee will apply. When it takes more than 15 minutes to brush out any tangles I have to charge for the additional time spent. If your pet is extremely matted and a "smoothie" or shave is needed this also requires additional time. The mats pull on the skin and create an uneven clipper surface. Extra care is necessary to avoid injury to the dog. Overgrown dogs who are scissored also require additional time to bathe, blow dry, and scissor the coat to the ideal length. If you wish to avoid these fees a 4 week schedule is recommended for most clients. Prices start at $10.00

Naughty Not Nice Fee- If your pup is extra naughty about the grooming process to the point where I need additional assistance to complete the groom this fee may apply. After a Naughty Not Nice fee has been added I always offer advice and training tips on ways to improve the grooming experience for both groomer and dog. Often we can work past the behavioral issues to the point where no additional fees are needed. Safety for your dog and groomer is my highest priority. This will not be compromised at any cost. Prices start at $5.00.

     All prices are based on breed, size, coat length, texture, and condition. Prices quoted over phone or email are estimates. I will be able to tell you more accurate charges when I see and feel the dogs condition. Price may also vary due to behavior (see Naughty not Nice Fee).
