Frequently Asked Questions
As a pet owner, there are many questions that come up when it comes to dog grooming. Here are some commonly asked grooming related questions. If we haven't answered your question, please feel free to contact us by phone or email located on the contacts page.
When should I start grooming my puppy?
We recommend introducing your puppy as soon as he/she receives their second set of shots. They're usually 10-12 weeks at this time. It is important to start them young so that they're familiar with the grooming process.
How often should my dog(s) be groomed?
We recommend maintaining your dog on a 6-8 week schedule. This will allow us to develop a strong bond with your dog. Bringing them every 6-8 weeks will also help preventing them from matting which will allow us more versatility with their coat. It will also keep them looking their best!
How long will my dog's grooming service be?
There is never a time guarantee. We pride ourselves in quality over quantity and in order to achieve quality, we need the necessary time. Upon arrival, we can give you an approximate time but will generally call you when your dog is ready.
Are vaccinations required in order to get my dog groomed?
Yes. For the protection of your dog and all other dogs at Pawlish, all dogs must be up to date with their vaccines.
If my dog is matted, but I don't want them shaved, can you brush them out?
Depending on the severity of the matting, yes they can be brushed out. Dematting is an extra $15.00 per half our. However, if your dog is severely matted, then the only option is to give them a shorter trim.
Do you express anal glands?
No we do not. We believe anal gland expression should be performed by a veterinarian. Problems can arise from expressing anal glans, therefore, it is important that they're done correctly.
