Our winters can be quite rough on dogs. It’s hard to get out and enjoy the beauty of the Shoreview, MN area when it’s so cold outside. And when you do venture out with your dog, there’s a good chance your dog looks like the abominable snowman after running through the snow and ice. Provide your dog with the opportunity to get out of the house and feel (and look) better with our grooming services.

Grooming is an excellent way to nourish your dog’s skin and coat. Winters are rough on dogs’ skin and coats. The dry air can cause itching, irritation, cracks, and chapped noses. When we bathe your dog, we use high-quality shampoo to rinse away any dead skin while our nourishing conditioner will hydrate and replenish your dog’s coat and skin with oils for better protection against the cold.
Brushing gets rid of dead hair and prevents mats. As your dog’s winter coat comes in, their summer coat leaves remnants of dead and unhealthy hair behind. Thorough brushing will remove this hair and allow your dog’s coat to be better ventilated and healthy.
Angel, our professional groomer, will check the condition of your dog’s skin. An often overlooked aspect of dog grooming is the opportunity to check your pup for skin conditions and underlying conditions. Angel will let you know if your dog has any abnormalities or issues you may want us to have a closer look at.
Your dog’s teeth will be sparkling clean. Dog kisses make winter more manageable… having your dog’s teeth brushed makes those kisses the best they can be. Furthermore, a healthy mouth can extend your dog’s life and reduce chronic dental pain.
Your dog’s nails need a winter trim, too. During other seasons, your dog’s nails get filed down on walks. There’s a good chance you and your pup are going on fewer walks, leaving your dog’s nails longer than they should be. Our grooming services include nail trims. This simple procedure will ensure your dog is ready for spring fun.
