Another client shares her recent experience with our modified COVID-19 procedures. #weareinthistogether
We closed at the beginning of this pandemic because the safety of our team & our clients is top of mind in all that we do. When we were preparing to reopen, we took all of the social distancing recommendations into serious consideration and have made significant changes to our operating procedures as a result. We are all THRILLED to be back serving you in a SAFE way. #weloveourclients #weareinthistogether
Raffle Thank Yous!!
Bagel had his first bath with us today 😍 He is 3 months old and we couldn’t get enough of his puppy kisses. #rottiepuppy
This is one of the two organizations we are supporting with our May Raffle. And this is why . . . They help local pet parents afford the treatment their pets need to fight cancer. We are cheering you on Sweet Leo - Kick Cancers A$$!!
This big love bug is Leo, a five-year-old lab mix battling osteosarcoma. His back leg was amputated at the beginning of April after Leo's family noticed a limp and received the bone cancer diagnosis. Now he's receiving chemotherapy treatments under the excellent care of the team at The Oncology Service in Leesburg, VA. Through our Companions in Crisis program, FETCH is helping relieve the financial burden of Leo's lifesaving treatments by funding a portion of the costs.
"If he were a human child, there would be no question about treating him. He is like a child to me, so there you go..." Let's wish Leo and his family all the best as they continue on their journey against this awful disease. We know you can beat this, bud!
Tanner had quarantine hair. We did a magical makeover on him and look how happy he is now 😍 #doggiemakeover #wemissedyou
Every year we donate a portion of the proceeds from every sale of cookies from our biscuit bar to a canine cancer awareness/research organization and this year we have decided the donations will go to two deserving organizations: Canines-N-Kids Foundation and FETCH a Cure. Both organizations are losing critical fundraising opportunities this spring due to social distancing restrictions currently in place. So to help them out we have collected over $1700 worth of prizes that we are raffling off in the month of May. You could win a FULL YEAR OF FREE GROOMING at our salon valued at over $650, A FREE PRIVATE PHOTO SESSION with pet photographer Carina of Hounds and Hearth valued at over $299, a gift card and gift set valued at $150 from our friends over at Rain Salon of Ashburn, a gift basket and gift card valued at over $100 from our friends at Dog Krazy, a personalized digital drawing of your pet by local artist Caroline Chatfield, a gift basket and certificate for a free doggie birthday/gotcha day cake from our friends over at P&C Pawtisserie PLUS gift cards to many of our favorite LOCAL RESTAURANTS like Blue Ridge Grill, Parallel Wine Bistro & Whiskey Bar, Fords Fish Shack, Clydes at Willow Creek and Subway. We have been adding additional prizes every day!! You can buy your raffle tickets during your next visit to the salon or mail us a check to (if you mail us a check, send us a quick email to let us know so we can get your raffle tickets ready): Belly Rubs, Attn Raffle; 43330 Junction Plaza, Suite 178; Ashburn, VA 20147. We are working on a Venmo account for purchasing as well, check back in a day or two for that update. On behalf of myself, our team and these two fabulous organizations, thank you for your support!!

Give Us A Call To Get Scheduled
Dear Belly Rubs Family,
We want to begin by saying that we are so grateful for the outpouring of support and love from the clients who have reached out over the past month!! Never in our wildest dreams did we foresee having to weather a storm like the one we have all been facing as a community and nation. Our management team collectively made the difficult decision to temporarily close our salon on March 21st out of an abundance of precaution because our team members were growing more and more concerned about the safety of our clients and themselves.
We are excited to announce that the management team met this week and, again collectively, decided on our firm reopening date!! We will begin grooming again on Monday, April 27th. Any appointments scheduled before our reopening date of April 27th have been automatically cancelled. For the time being, until we are all able to return to a “normal” routine, we will be limiting the number of groomers working each day to only three (which is half of what we would normally have on any given day) and ask for your continued patience in scheduling as we try to be of service to each of you in the safest and most timely manner. All appointments schedule from April 27th on are still standing; however, we may be calling you to adjust dates/times as a result of our temporary changes to staffing levels and individual groomer’s altered schedules.
We do need a few days to get our scheduling calendar updated to reflect our temporary hours & staffing levels, so please wait until Monday, April 13th to reach out to us for scheduling needs. We are prioritizing the month of May to those who had existing appointments that were cancelled as a result of our closure and will do our best to accommodate your scheduling requests. If you had an appointment that was affected during this time, please call us beginning Monday, April 13th to get your appointment rescheduled.
Temporary Operational Changes Due To COVID-19
•Temporary Hours: Monday - Saturday 8am to 4pm
•Masks: Staff will be wearing face masks and we encourage our clients to do so as well.
•One Client In Salon At A Time: We ask that clients please wait at the door for us to greet you and let you inside (the door will be locked so we can manage who is entering/exiting our reception area).
•Personal Belongings: We will be asking you to remove your collar/harness/leash/etc and we will use our slip leads while caring for your dog. Please remember to bring your collar & leash back with you when you come for pickup.
•Credit Card Payments: We will be sanitizing our credit card machine after each use. If you prefer to pay via credit card over the phone when we call you to inform you that your dog’s appointment is complete, we are happy to do that for you.
•Gratuities: While gratuities are never expected, they are greatly appreciated by your groomer for a job well done. Each groomer will have an individualized tip box as we continue to only be able to accept tips in the form of cash or checks.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at [email protected]. We will also be posting any future updates and announcements on our page, so please follow us there at www.facebook.com/bellyrubsnsuds. Again, we appreciate your patience and support through this experience!

Our team has been separated for 13 days now. So today we played a “Virtual Scavenger Hunt” to have some fun together. Here are some of the pics that came in of funny selfies, books, big spoons and something yummy (there were also front doors, left shoes and the all important toilet paper photos). If your work group is working from home you should plan a virtual scavenger hunt to have some fun together even if you are forced to be apart (fun for families, book clubs and any group not able to gather right now - give it a try . . . I promise it will make you laugh).
This is not an easy decision for us to make. But we fully believe it is the socially responsible thing to do right now. Thank you to each and every client that I have spoken to over the last two weeks sharing your love & support!! It is what is helping this small business hold on to the hope that we will come back stronger from this mess. Miss you all!!!
We miss all of our wonderful clients while we do the socially responsible thing and close for a couple of weeks to help slow the spread of the devastating COVID-19. Have a great weekend and we look forward to seeing your smiling faces & wagging tails soon!!
Effective immediately we are closed in order to stop the spread of COVID-19. This was not an easy decision for us to make and it was a team decision. It is more important to us right now that we do what we can do to keep our team, our clients and community safe. We are all looking forward to seeing your smiling faces and wagging tails when we as a community and country get past this fight. See first comment for full letter that was emailed to clients this morning.
ANNOUNCEMENT FOR SELF WASH AND NAIL TRIM SERVICES: We have decided to temporarily close our self-serve dog wash stations and require nail trims to schedule an appointment in an effort to follow the 6 feet of social distancing and limiting the number to less than 10 people in our reception area at any given time. We hope this will be short term and we will update our clients when we are set to open our self-serve dog wash stations and walk-in nail trims to the public again.
Do you have a special fur baby celebrating a big day? 🥳 We have the treats to make that day even more special!! These beautiful cookies are crafted right here in #loudouncounty by our fellow small business P&C’s Pawtisserie
