DOG GROOMING SERVICES
Each full service groom includes: bath, blow dry, brush out/de-shed, nails trimmed, ears cleaned, haircut and trimming, bows or bandana and cologne.
Each dog is bathed in all natural shampoo. A variety of shampoos are available for unique skin and coat needs. If your dog has a prescribed veterinary shampoo, please bring it with you. We take care to wash each dog with warm water, and they are thoroughly lathered by hand or with the aid of our Prima Bathing System which uses a massage jet to distribute the shampoo close to the skin to remove dirt and excess oils. Conditioner is applied when needed and the coat is rinsed twice to ensure all product is removed.
A high speed dryer is used to remove most of the water from the coat. Then the dog may be allowed to air dry for a short time with a clean towel. For some pets air drying reduced the length of time they need to spend on the table, and is less stressful for those who may be fearful of the dryer. No heated cage dryers are used at Bonsai Pet, the safety of each pet is top priority. The dogs are then fluff dried which allows us to straighten, and detangle the hair as well as remove shedding undercoat and prepare for trimming
All dogs receive a full brush out, and will have mats and tangles removed. Thick double coated breeds like Collies, Golden Retrievers, and Pomeranians get loose undercoat thoroughly brushed out. Brushing reduces shedding and prevents matting. We will also use a Furminator to de-shed smooth coats as needed. Frequent grooming will dramatically reduce the amount of shedding in any breed.
If your pet requires a deeper cleaning of the ear canal or an ear flush please see your vet. If possible infection or irritation is seen owners will be informed, and referred to a vet for further instruction. We will not proceed with ear cleaning if it appears to be painful to the dog, or the health of the ear canal is questionable.
We encourage owners to give input on what type of trimming they want done. We are always happy to make changes if something isn’t quite right, or if something new is desired.
BOWS, BANDANAS & COLOGNE
Dogs receive bows or a bandana for a special touch. Finally, a spritz of cologne is applied, a variety of scents are available.We also offer a touch of color, temporary tattoos, earing bling, and nail polish for an extra charge.
