When Calling for an appointment

If you are calling me from groupon...YAY!  I'm excited about that!  When you call me, you are calling my personal cell phone!  As I am not that busy yet, I am not going to get a separate business line just yet.  So I may not always answer.  It could be I am taking care of my family, I could be grooming another doggie, or I could be out taking care of things.  Don't worry though, your call is important to me, and I will return you call ASAP!  PLEASE leave a voicemail when calling to inquire of my grooming services or to schedule an appointment.  I only return calls to those who leave me a message!  Feel free to text as well!  Also please keep calls and texts for grooming between the hours of 9am and 6pm!  I appreciate the consideration!

Clarification on Groupon Deal

There has been some confusion about the deal I have on groupon!  I had put details on for the deal, but Groupon, decided not to put all the information it required for me to put in there.  I have different prices based on breed of dog and what services your wanting for your dog.  I recommend on giving me a call to get an estimate on what you need done for your dog before purchasing the groupon deal! 

The groupon says $12 for $22 worth of Pet Grooming.  That means, what if you pay the $12 for $22 worth of grooming, you'll get $22 taken off the total of your bill.  So, let's say you have a Shih, Tzu, and your groom came to $36.  I'll subtract $22 for the groupon, and you'll owe $14.  If you get anything additional, it'll add on to what the remainder of the bill is.  This was just an example to help clarify any confusion you may have.  If you have any questions any or want to book, my contact information is located on the page of my groupon deal.  Please keep the phone calls between the hours or 9am and 6pm.  I appreciate that!

Sunday

Happy Sunday everyone!  Yesterday was a busy day for me!  I am excited about that!  I had two grooms and several phone calls about grooming!  Please be sure to like my facebook page to stay up to day on the happenings with my business!  Pampered Pups & Pals

Occasionally I will post a "Pet of the Month"  That pet will get a FREE upgrade on their next visit!  Right now, with every First visit, you doggie will 2 get treats to take home and you'll get a business card!  Don't lose this card, because on the back is a way for you to earn FREE toothbrushing! 

All grooms MUST have an appointment, this includes those just wanting a nail trim.  I'm usually here, but I would hate for you to come by and I'm not here.  This is a business that is run out of a home!  It is located in a subdivision, not a shopping plaza!  The phone number for my business is my cell number, please understand that I may not always answer, BUT I will get back to you ASAP!  If it is past 6pm, I will wait till the next day unless you let me know otherwise.  Please call between the hours of 9am and 6pm to schedule your grooming needs! 

I do accept cat grooms, but as bath appointments only.  I will spot shave, but currently not accepting shave downs for cats.

Flea & Tick preventatives

Be sure to treat your furry family members for fleas & ticks! Research the products out there! The cheaper the product is, the less effective it is going to be and the more likely it will wash off your furry friend!

I know this can get expensive, I have a Bichon. I presonally use and love the product Revolution. It is available for cats and dogs! It is a flea preventative and heartworm preventative in one. It does not protect against ticks though! So if you aren't worried about ticks, this is a good product. I've been using it four years now and don't think I'll ever switch! If you need a product that protects against fleas & ticks, I recommend Advantix. You would still need a heartworm preventative.

Like I said, make sure to do your research and even possibly talk to your Vet on preventatives. Happy Friday all! Grooming appointments available through the weekend. The last appointment for Sunday will be 12! Have a great weekend!
