are booked based on breed and type of service. On your first visit, expect to leave your dog for about 1½ to 3 hours, depending on breed and coat condition. We work one on one with your dog and your first visit is very important to us. We would like to get to know your dog so we can build a relationship with him or her We take extensive notes about coat, haircut desired, and demeanor, so that for future visit’s we know ahead of time. At Green Dog Wash we work as a team. What does this mean? This means that your dog is usually assigned to the same Canine Stylist when possible, but on occasion your dog may be groomed by someone else. If you have a favorite Canine Stylist, be sure to request them when scheduling appointments. We are also 100% cage free. That means that at no point will your dog be in a cage. This means that we do not take in multiple dogs at one time and get to them when we can and we NEVER dry them in a cage. We have found that this helps reduce some of the anxiety that the grooming experience may cause some dogs.Dog Grooming is an art. We do not get the same luxuries of your hairdresser for absolute stillness and pointing our heads in one direction. We are basically working with sharp equipment on a moving target and are very careful. Please share with us any concerns you may have about your dog’s behavior so we know ahead of time. What are our prices based on? All prices are based on THE BREED, AVERAGE STANDARD SIZE, LENGTH DESIRED, AND CONDITION OF THE COAT. This is the toughest part of the grooming business. We have a general price list base for each breed which you are always welcome to see. Please note: From visit to visit your price may vary depending on the length desired and condition of the coat. If you have any questions regarding your price, we are always happy to discuss it with you. You will always know the price before you leave your dog with us.Severely Matted Dogs: If it is going to be painful for the pet, we do not do it. De-matting certain coats is just cruel. Occasionally we can set aside time to work on certain hair types but for the most part, prevention is key. If your pet arrives with matted hair that will take more than a few minutes to safely brush out – you will be charged a minimum of $10 per 15 minutes of brush out time. Only IF WE HAVE ALREADY AGREED TO BRUSH IT OUT. You are always welcome to come in between grooms for a Full Service or Self-Service Wash. Everything is still included, for a lesser amount except for the actual body hair cut/style. We require a matted release form to be signed prior to grooming a matted dog. Severe matt’s may uncover many skin issues and this release will detail some things we may uncover.
