If an appointment is missed or rescheduled without 24 hour notification, a $35.00 "no show"/"late cancellation fee" will be charged and a deposit of 1/2 the grooming cost may be required to schedule in the future. We understand that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances happen, please contact us as soon as possible in these cases.

At the time of check-in we will give you an approximate time of when your dog will be ready to go home. We will contact you as soon as your dog is finished. Since we are cage-free and our salon is not set up to accommodate grooming guests for long stretches of time, we ask that you pick up your pet within 2 hours. If you are late, a fee will be added to accommodate the time spent caring for and keeping your pet comfortable until you arrive.

Late Pick-Up Fees:
2 - 4 hours late - $22
4+ hours late - $35
