Since students are new to grooming, we only book well behaved dogs who are well socialized and good on the grooming table. All dogs that enter the school are required to be on a regular, monthly flea/tick treatment. Frontline and/or Advantix are recommended.

Mon-Fri drop off 10:30am, pick up 2:30pm. Students will begin working on their dogs promptly at 10:30am. Please drop off promptly so the student is not in class without a model dog. Your dog will not be ready early. If you cannot pick-up at 2:30pm, Mon-Fri and you need your dog earlier or later, please choose another day. Please pick up your dog promptly at 2:30pm. Any pet not retrieved at 2:30pm will be subjected to a waiting fee, which is $25 for every fifteen minutes past 2:30pm and $50 for every fifteen minutes past closing time, which is 3pm. We do not have boarding facilities.
Cancellations and No-Shows
Because we are a school, cancellations and no-shows leave a student without a dog to work on during class. Most students commute several hours each day to attend class and work on their assigned dogs, while others are paying to stay in local hotels. We assign each student a dog every day. Once you make an appointment, we respectfully request that you keep the appointment, However; in case of emergency, please be considerate and call in any cancellations at least 24 business hours in advance or a cancellation fee of $35 per dog scheduled will be billed. Business hours are defined as Monday-Friday 9am-3pm during Mon-Fri sessions and 9am-3pm during Tues-Sat session. We will not rebook any clients that are a no-shows or who cancel the same day of the their appointment.
