Vaccinations are required for your pet’s protection and ours.
Puppies must have at least the second round of puppy shots.
Rabies must be current within 72 hours of the grooming appointment.
**If you are opposed to vaccinating your pet, please call to discuss
your pet's general health and any concerns you may have.
If you know your pet has fleas or ticks, please tell us when you make the appointment. If we discover the fleas or ticks after you leave, we will attempt to contact you, but will proceed with the flea & tick bath even if we can't reach you. If fleas are present on your pet, we will require a flea bath. This ensures other pets do not get fleas and it keeps the salon clean. The cost will vary depending on the severity of fleas. The fee is $5-$20.
Please be honest and tell us if your pet has an issue with biting or aggression towards humans or other dogs. If your pet is very aggressive, unruly, or requires the assistance of another person, Smooches-4-Pooches may decline to groom your pet. If we are able to accommodate whatever issue your pet has, there will be an additional “handling fee”. The fee will be $10-$30 in addition to the normal grooming fee; the price will depend on how your pet behaves. If we believe your pet poses a danger to themselves, other pets or to the groomer this will result in dismissal from services until the dog receives obedience training and the aggression issue is resolved.
In case of emergencies
In case of an emergency or accident, you will be notified immediately. If you are unable to take your pet to their regular vet at that time, we will take your pet to the nearest veterinarian. Veterinary bills from matting, old-age, or preexisting conditions will be the responsibility of the owner.
