We strive to have your dog groomed in a timely manner. Most dogs are completed within 2-4 hour time frame so they aren't waiting around to be pampered. Please note after 10 minutes you will be billed a $7 late fee. After another 10 minutes you will be charged an additional $7 ($14 total). By 25 minutes your appointment may be canceled.
Late pick ups put us behind schedule and conflicts with other clients who arrive on time for their appointment. You will get a 10-15 minute heads up before your pet is ready. You then receive an additional 15 minutes to pick up your pet giving you a total of 30 minutes. Please note after your 30 minute time frame window you will be charged an additional $5 to your bill every additional 5 minutes you are late.
We are a stress free one on one grooming salon. In order to keep a stress free, safe environment for your furry family member, we groom by appointment only and each pet is given a specific time slot based on their breed, weight, and service they’ll receive. Your spa appointment is a reservation for the individualized attention we provide each pet. We can only take a limited number of appointments each day. A missed appointment is a loss of income to a small business and our groomers. If an appointment is missed with no notification or canceled day of you will be billed 50% of your grooming service for that day. Please cancel your appointment 24-48 hours before. We have a waitlist of clients that will be willing to take your slot.
Repeated No Show
Due to the popularity and the demand for Posh Paws Grooming Service, if an appointment is missed without notice three times not only do we miss the opportunity to fill your appointment time but an opportunity for another client on our wait list to receive a service. You will no longer be able to use our online booking system to create future appointments. Instead, you will have to call for same day availability if there is a cancelation and you will be put on the cancellation list. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Mats form when the coat is not properly maintained by not brushing and combing on a regular basis. Consistent wearing of a collar and/or harness or clothing can contribute to matting in areas around the neck and front legs. Some mats can be safely removed with brushing and combing and time for removal will be reflected in the total groom service fee. If the mats cannot be removed due to tightness on the skin, we will not be able to service your pet and we will recommend a local vet to remove the matting. Please let us know if your pet is severely matted before making a grooming appointment. We reserve the right to charge a cancelation fee if you fail to communicate your dog is matted. Please call the salon for a free consultation with a stylist to evaluate matting before booking appointment.
Please let us know if your pet has any aggression towards other animals or grooming services. For the safety of our pets and employees we reserve the right to stop performing services. Also, we may arrange end of day appointment if your pet does not do well with other pets. If your pet is difficult to groom or has been rejected in other salons we do charge a special handling fee of $15-$30 as we block off half of day to better accommodate pet and reduce any stress. Please let us know ahead of time and call a team member to book if your pet is difficult as we do schedule accordingly.
Flea & Ticks
We are a flea and tick free salon. We understand you may not be aware your pet has any. If they are found during your pets service, for the safety of other pets we are obligated to apply our de-flea bath treatment at an additional cost of $10. If your pet is infested with fleas and ticks we will have to stop their service and continue when your pet is flea free.
First time grooming experience can be quite scary. This is why we require first time puppies to get a puppy trim and not a full haircut. This will help your puppy develop good grooming manners along with a relaxing first experience.
Due to the popularly and demand of Posh Paws Grooming services, we require all clients to reschedule their following appointment after their pets visit. Booking for the year is highly recommended but not required. This is because our current clients are all on a 2,4,6 or 8 week schedule. If you do not rebook we can not guarantee your pet a spot at your desired time. If you have a long hair pet, you are required to keep a 4,6 or 8 week appointment to maintain the length you desire. If your pet is not rescheduled at appointment date unfortunately we can not accommodate your pet as it will effect our high quality of work we strive for.
