Prices vary based on the size of the pet, breed, temperament, and condition of the pets coat.

We have the right to reject any pet at our sole discretion if we believe that grooming the pet will be hazardous to the pet and/or our employees.
If your dog does not respond to the groomer and don’t remain still during the grooming procedure accidents can happen and Doggie V.I.P will not be held responsible for such as clipper burn and/or minor nicks resulting from grooming of matted, neglected coats or for irritation caused by removing coat from pets possessing mild to severe skin allergy or skin conditions, nor will we be held responsible for stressful effects grooming may have upon an elderly pet. Shave downs or custom cuts that are outside normal specific breed haircuts will be discussed and the groomer will perform the cuts to the best of his/her understanding of client’s directions and his/her ability but no other guarantee is made.
Allergies and Sensitivities: Your dog's safety and comfort is our primary concern. Please advise us of any allergies, sensitivities, or pre-existing medical conditions. Please let us know of any prior grooming history you or your dog may not have found satisfactory. We want to avoid the repetition of poor or unpleasant experiences or situations.
If fleas are found on your pet, Doggie V.I.P will administer a flea bath to eradicate the fleas in order to maintain salon sanitation. This is at the groomer’s discretion and at the client’s expense.
Doggie V.I.P./the groomer will be held harmless from damage, loss or claims arising from any known or unknown pre-existing condition of the pet(s). The terms, special services or handling shall include but are not limited to veterinary emergency services in the event that the client is not available. Client authorizes Doggie V.I.P to act as his/her agent in the event emergency veterinarian services, boarding, care-taking, and/or transportation is necessary and agrees to pay all costs. Any/all damages or claims shall include but not be limited to advanced age, extreme nervousness, neurosis, illness, previous injury, skin or coat conditions or any other medical conditions.
Allowing a pets coat to get matted is not only very UNCOMFORTABLE, but DANGEROUS for your pet’s health. Excessive matting can be avoided with regular brushing and grooming and the groomer will be happy to show you some brushing techniques for mat prevention.
The groomer will de-mat the pet (if possible) at $1 per minute (minimum $15) in addition to the regular grooming fee OR the pet will receive a “shave down” to remove the mats. Under this circumstance, a shave down is the only way to allow the skin to receive necessary oxygen and for new, healthy hair to grow. Charges for the shave down or shaving ears and tail if they are matted are determined on a per pet basis. If the client requests the mats be combed out, the groomer will not do so if it causes pet undue stress or pain. Excessive de-matting is a painful, time-consuming and costly procedure that causes extreme discomfort and can aggravate (or cause) skin problems.
