Grooming Overview

As certified groomers, our team's training included classroom instruction, hands-on grooming according to AKC standards, scissoring techniques, and first aid. It is our #1 priority to provide a safe, healthy, and clean environment for your furry family member.

 

DGG utilizes all natural shampoos and conditioners. Our vast selection of specialty shampoos and conditioners, allows us to customize to your dogs specific needs. Only professional-grade ear cleaner that is PH balanced and safe for your dog's ears. Lastly, the fresh-smelling, long-lasting body spray that your dog comes home wearing is safe for all puppies and adults.

Shampooing:
Each dog is bathed in a specialty shampoo to maximize the health and appearance of the dogs coat and skin.  Shampoo selection includes but not limited to:

  • Deep Cleaning shampoo

  • Scent of the Month shampoos: mild, fresh scents that restores moisture, shine and softness.  Includes matching cologne spray.

  • Brightening shampoo: brightens and enhances the coats of white and black dogs

  • Medicated and Anti-Itch shampoos: Help relieve itching from dandruff, seborrhea and hot spots.

* Use of each shampoo is based on your dog's needs and is included in the price of grooming.

* We offer (additional charge) colloidal oatmeal shampoo and conditioners for dogs with skin problems as well as a flea/tick shampoo that is gentle and effective in eliminating those pesky pests.

Conditioning:
Each dog receives a coat conditioner. This leave-on spray conditioner is applied after towel drying to reduce static and frizz.  It helps restore moisture and cuts drying and brushing time in half as well as provide extra conditioning, detangling, manageability, softness and shine!

The equipment used is high-quality and sharpened on a regular basis by a professional sharpener which improves the quality of each haircut and reduces the chance of injury and discomfort to your dogs due to dullness. Professional combs, brushes and de-matt tools make the entire process more effective and pleasant. A professional high-force dryer is used to hand dry each dog, so therefore your dog will never get too hot or be left alone while drying. This process also allows for a smooth overall finish. While this is more labor intensive and time consuming, the safety of your dog is our ultimate concern.

Anal Gland Expression:

This is an important part of grooming and one for which many groomers charge extra or omit. Expression of the anal glands helps reduce pressure on the anal opening, thus eliminating scooting due to the discomfort of full glands. Additionally, expression helps reduce the chance of the glands' becoming infected or abscessing.

Mini "Health Screening":

We aren't qualified to diagnose or treat any canine injury or illness, to the extent that our education and experience allows, each dog groomed is examined for any health-related abnormalities. Each dog's eyes, ears, teeth, toenails, pads, anal glands, skin, and genitals are checked. If something is concerning, you will be notified via the "Pet Checklist" when picking up and recommended to seek veterinary evaluation and treatment.
