Benefits of Dog Grooming
Bathing: Keeps coat healthy and free from dirt, dead skin, fleas and ticks.
Remove dead hair and skin: Grooming allows you to remove dead hair and skin from your dog’s coat.
This will not only improve the look of the coat, but will also improve air circulation to the skin. This is
especially important during the hot months when it is hot and humid.
Nail trimming: Keeps nails from becoming overgrown and keeps dew claw healthy.
Ear cleaning: Discourages growth of parasites and bacteria.
Shaving paw pads: Keeps pad clean so ice, burs, etc. do not become embedded.
Dog socializing: Dogs get to socialize with one another becoming more "dog friendly"
Locate parasites: Fleas and other parasites can cause dog allergies. While grooming your dog keep an eye out for fleas and ticks and remove them right away. These parasites can cause other problems for your dog as well. Benefits to good dog grooming.

Shave Down and Mat Policy Dogs that are moderately/severely matted will be clipped short to start re-growth of new, undamaged coat. The de-matting process is not only dangerous and inhumane, but nearly pointless after this level of grooming neglect. De-matted hair is damaged and brittle and will only become matted again. Dematting can be a long and painful process. If we do not believe we can remove the mats in a timely manner or we feel your pet is in pain, we will not continue and will clip short/shave. We firmly believe grooming should be an enjoyable experience and will not put your pet through the discomfort of unnecessary de-matting.
Excessive de-matting can also cause irreversible skin damage. Such mats must be shaved. We do not leave mats on animals as it can lead to sores on the skin Paws and Pamper is not responsible for conditions revealed under matted fur or caused as a result of matted fur. Matted fur may cause irritated skin, sores, and other adverse conditions. Matted fur causes the skin to be more sensitive to grooming blades and, because the skin has not been able to "breathe", may result in a rash, sores, or cuts once uncovered. Matted fur increases the risk of cuts and nicks and cuts as it prevents blades from moving smoothly through the fur. Our strict de-matting policy puts all animals' health and comfort above cosmetics and aesthetics, when necessary. It is our effort to promote the ongoing health and comfort of all pets at our shop. We understand that many owners do not know that their pet is matted because the "top coat" seems touchably soft. Our groomers are trained professionals who can identify mats that are too tight to be combed. We offer a "back on track" program for matted animals so that we can help you maintain your pet's longer coat once it grows back

We will accept a typed receipt/record from your Veterinarian at the time of your 1st visit with the name and phone number of your Veterinarian.
Re-do policy: Your satisfaction is important to us. If you are unhappy for any reason, and would like something adjusted, I will be happy to make any adjustments when you pick-up your pet from his/her appointment. Once, however, you take your pet home from the appointment, any return visits will be treated as a new appointment and client will be charged a grooming fee of some kind.

If your dog is matted and you would like your dog shaved Down, if the groomer has to brush for 15 min on the dog it’s $15.00 for 15 min and I won’t do it longer than 30 min Ever. If your Pet cannot be de-mat humanly with brushing first. I will tell you it is “time to start over “and will ask permission to shave your dog down. Shaving a Dog may be Necessary due to matting or it may be a personal choice. Shaving Means “to Clip the Coat very close to skin, which gives it a “smooth” look.
