K-9 HQ Grooming Salon
Our Grooming Salon is an extension of our core mission to support partnership between you and your dog. With our knowledge and expertise just a phone call away, we can help you keep your pup clean, comfortable, and looking great. Our staff works with you to understand your individual dog’s skin and coat needs, your lifestyle and your maintenance preferences. We are always happy to answer your questions and to determine an ideal schedule for achieving your grooming goals for your dog.
We have two groomers, each with 12+ years of experience and a grooming assistant. We are proud to offer grooming for dogs of every shape and size from the tiniest teacups to the massive mastiffs. Our salon is equipped with multiple tubs and tables, including low options for dogs with sore joints or disabilities. We also have several types of dryers available and an extensive collection of shampoos and conditioners for many coat types including, but not limited to, hypoallergenic, oatmeal for dry skin, whitening shampoo, colour pigment enhancement shampoos, medicated, de-shedding shampoo and conditioner, etc. A combination may be used to achieve the best results.
Grooming Salon appointments are available Monday through Saturday 8:30 – 6:00 PM and can also be added to any Daycare stay.
For grooming, core vaccinations are encouraged but the rabies vaccination is required as per Ontario law. Proof of vaccination will be required upon your first appointment with us.
FEAR FREE CERTIFIED
Sometimes we see dogs that are fearful of grooming. Perhaps they had a bad experience in the past, or maybe they don’t have a lot of experience in the salon. Do you have a dog that tries to bite the nail clippers? Or does your dog howl in the bathtub? Many animals don’t necessarily enjoy having their feet handled, getting a haircut, or taking a bath but there are a lot that groomers can do to make those things more comfortable (and even fun!) for them.
Our groomer Kat has completed the Fear Free Groomer Certification Program which teaches Fear Free concepts to ensure that the grooming experience is as enjoyable as possible for every pet, every time. Whether it is your dog’s very first visit to the salon or they have already developed a fear, we can help them. All this translates into decreased stress on you and the animals!
