It's Just A Bath
Have you ever wondered why Pet stylists charge so much for "JUST A BATH"? Many clients do not understand
what is involved in giving their dog a bath and we are often asked why we charge what we do for a "bath dog"
(labs, boxers, hounds, etc.)
There are many things that go into giving a dog "just a bath"…
- You're probably reading this because you figured out most dogs don't want to get in the tub at home
- Some dogs are just too much to handle in the owner's home during bath time
- There are special considerations such as lifting and/or struggling
with a big dog that resists getting into and staying in the tub
- Special shampoos (most "short haired" dogs have skin issues) and/or brushing and de-shedding
- Please keep in mind that all dogs take up cage space and drying time, whether that dog is getting a haircut or not
- Nails and ears take time to groom too!
Does you dog typically get a haircut with his/her bath?
Sometimes yur pet needs a bath in between haircuts (also known as "full grooms"), especially if your pet is groomed less than every
4-6 weeks. Your pet's coat length and condition may be good, but it may be dirty from playing outside, snow, mud, rain, etc... We are
happy to schedule an appointment to bathe your dog in between haircuts, but please be aware that a great deal of work goes into the bath, including
trimming nails, cleaning ears, tidying up the sanitary area, feet/face, and brushing out the coat.
