Class Act Grooming

My goal is simple: to give your dog the individual look you want with the loving care he or she deserves.
Grooming Services

Well-groomed pets are happier, better behaved, healthier, and more outgoing. Just like all of us, they feel good when they look good.

Class Act Grooming offers a complete line of fine grooming services to bring out the best of appearance and personality in any breed. I work carefully, never rush, and book appointments with that in mind. I always take the time to do it right. My grooming services and rates follow.
 
1) Full-Service Grooming
This is a complete service, "the works", to optimize the overall appearance and hygiene of your pet. Class Act Full-Service Grooming includes:
  • Full brush-out, comb-out
  • De-mat coat as needed*
  • Specialized shampoo and conditioner selected for your dog's specific needs
  • Blow dry
  • Nail trim
  • Ear cleaning / plucking
  • Expression of anal glands
  • Shave pads of feet when necessary
  • Trim hair around sanitary area and rear when necessary
  • Breed haircut or custom haircut to your specs
  • Class Act seasonal doggie scarf
Your dog will look better, feel better and be healthier. He or she will feel younger and smell terrific!
 
2) Bath-Only
This abbreviated service is good for short-haired breeds.  It is also often chosen as a "refresher" between full-service appointments:
  • Full brush-out, comb-out
  • De-mat coat as needed*
  • Specialized shampoo and conditioner selected for your dog's specific needs
  • Blow dry
  • Nail trim
  • Ear cleaning / plucking
  • Expression of anal glands
  • Class Act seasonal doggie scarf
*Note about de-matting:
Additional charges will apply for de-matting cases requiring more than 15 minutes time to complete. Sometimes coats are matted to the point of no return. Dogs in this condition can be very uncomfortable and even in pain. The most humane thing to do in these cases is to carefully shave this type of matting off.


          We love Class Act Grooming ... You will too!
Grooming Rates
  • Full-Service: $65 & up
  • Bath-Only: $35 & up

A La Carte Options
  • Nail trimming: $15
  • Anal gland express: $15
  • Ear clean & pluck: $20

I set individual grooming prices for each dog based on the time required to complete the chosen service rather than on the breed or size. Factors which determine the price of a service include:
  • Amount of scissor work
  • Brushing
  • Clipping
  • Degree of matting
  • Difficulty of the cut
  • Disposition of the dog
  • Drying time
  • Length of hair
  • Size of dog
I think you will find my prices quite reasonable and I'll be happy to quote you an estimate over the phone. Of course, I can give you the actual price once I see your dog and discuss your specific needs.



Delivery Service
  • One way: $10
  • Both ways: $15

I am pleased to offer door-to-door pickup and return within a 10-mile radius of shop location for qualified dogs. Do you have a hard time getting your dog to his appointment on time? Don't know if you can make it back on time for pick up? Then my pickup and delivery of your precious pooch will make your life easier!
