Clifton Park & Saratoga
Professional, Creative & Patient
We are a full-service professional dog grooming salon staffed by experienced and caring stylists. We eschew the assembly line method of grooming dogs in favor of individually scheduled appointments so that each client has our undivided attention and the salon environment is as stress-free as possible.
Here are just a few of the great attributes that set us apart from some other dog groomers:
We use only quality products with special attention paid to the safety of all ingredients.
Every dog is worked on from start to finish during their set appointment time.
We dry all dogs by hand using a towel and high-velocity dryer to properly monitor the condition of a dog’s skin and coat while achieving the best finished groom results.
Clifton Park: Monday - Sunday
Saratoga: Tuesday - Saturday
By appointment only
In order to hold your dog’s spot we require them to be registered in our scheduling system and have a credit card on file or a 50% deposit. Pet owners will receive an email reminder of their scheduled appointment, as well as a call the day prior. We request notification of cancellation 24 hours prior to an appointment in order to avoid being charged our late-cancellation fee. Exceptions do apply at our discretion.
All prices are based on service requested and time required to complete it. Breed of dog, size of dog, condition of coat and behavior during the groom factor into this cost. Price ranges listed below are estimates only.
Please Note: to ensure the safety and comfort of our dogs we do NOT provide anal expression or ear plucking services. We do not want to risk injuring a dog with impacted glands or cause trauma to the inner ear canal so we feel these methods are best left to veterinarians.

Puppy’s 1st Groom - $30
An hour-long introduction to the grooming process for puppies up to 5 months. We take our time through the bath and drying process to make the experience positive and fun. Each puppy is introduced to the feel of the clippers and at least minimal trimming with scissors.

Extras that can be added to any Bath, Mini Groom or Full Groom

Nail grind & conditioner
De-Matting - $15/30 minutes
At times, knots and tangles in a dog’s coat become matted and require additional brushing to remove.
Flea Elimination - $5 to $25
Due to the fact that we offer daycare and boarding we do not knowingly accept dogs with fleas. However, sometimes we will unexpectedly find them hitchhiking on dogs and when this happens we will take extra steps to rid them of the parasites and charge according to size and degree of infestation.
Size Differential - $5 to $10
Each standard breed has a typical weight and size range; if your dog happens to exceed the range we will charge accordingly to cover the additional time and product required.
Extra Handler - $10
Some dogs can be a smidge naughty for their groom or may have physical limitations that require an extra hand during the grooming process.
Late cancellation/no-show - 50% of groom
Groomers are paid commission and we are often booked out a week or two so it is important for clients to give ample notice of cancellation so that we can offer their time slot to another client. If you fail to give us notice the day prior, or any notification at all, you will be charged 50% of the base price for the expected groom.
