  • No weight limit for bath only dogs, 25 lb. weight limit for full haircuts. (Dogs over 40 lbs. must be able to stand and walk on their own.)

 

  • At least 48 hrs notice is required to change or cancel an appointment. No-shows or cancellations that occur with less than a 24 hour notice will be noted. Appointments scheduled thereafter will require the groom to be paid in advance and is refundable with 24 hours notice. Any add-on services needed on the day of the appointment will be charged at that time.

 

  • 50 ft. (about 3 car lengths) of legal curb space is required for us to be able to park the truck and mobile salon.

 

  • In the event of weather conditions such as snow or ice that prohibit safe driving, we will contact you to reschedule your pet’s grooming appointment.

 

  • If you rebook on the same day as your appointment, we give $5 off the following grooming appointment. *(8 week max)

 

  • Blooming Dog Mobile Grooming does not accept aggressive or sedated animals. If we are unable to groom your pet on the day of your appointment due to aggression, a $35 trip fee will be charged.

 

  • A $35 trip fee will be charged in the event that we show up for your appointment and your pet cannot be groomed because:
  1. your pet is too aggressive to be safely handled by the groomer
  2. we don’t have access to your pet or the owner cannot catch their pet in a timely manner
  3. your dog is over our weight limit
  4. your pet has stitches or an open wound that could become infected (shallow artificial wounds such as hot spots are Ok)
  5. your pet has been sedated
  6. your pet has recently had ANY contagious ailments
  • If you are unhappy with your services for any reason please notify us within 48 hours of service and Blooming Dog Mobile Grooming will do our best to correct your complaint.

 

  • Latch-key service is available if you would like to schedule an appointment while you are away from home. You may provide a key or garage code. The owner must be home for the first appointment.

 

  • Payment is due at the time services are rendered. Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted. There is a $35 fee for bounced checks/insufficient funds.

 

  • Becky will return messages as soon as possible when she is not working on a pet or driving, or as soon as possible at the end of the business day. For quickest response, please text us or fill out an online appointment request.

 

  • Any animal found with fleas is required to have a fleabath in order to keep the mobile salon bug free. ($10 charge)

 

  • We are not able to groom a recently skunked pet.

 

  • Dogs with matting too severe to remove humanely will be required to be shaved down. Severely matted dogs that are felted together and must be shaved before and after the bath will have $20 added to the groom fee.

 

  • Cat haircuts are 1/2″ or longer. We do NOT offer shave downs on cats. If your cat is too severely matted/pelted for us to humanely comb out, we will do a nail trim ($25) and recommend a veterinary hospital where your cat can be shaved.

 

  • Our insurance prohibits allowing any person aside from the groomer to be in the trailer, however, we would be happy to let you take a peek from the doorway to check out the inside of the mobile salon prior to your pet’s grooming.

 

  • We do NOT offer ear hair plucking. The process is painful for dogs and because it often leads to ear inflammation or hematomas that are best treated by your veterinarian, we recommend it be done at a pet hospital if it is necessary.
