Just a little recap on your brushes! I know this is kind of a long read but it’s super informative!

Just a little recap on your brushes! I know this is kind of a long read but it’s super informative!

Brushing is super beneficial for all kinds of dogs no matter what breed they are! Regular brushing not only keeps mats and tangles away but also helps remove dead hair, dirt, dandruff and brings out the natural oils in the dogs fur giving the coat a healthy shine! Another grooming benefit is being able to check your dog for abnormalities; ticks, fleas, hot spots, open sores, and any other issues. Brushing also equals bonding time with your pet so don’t delay and start grooming your pup at and early stage. Normally we suggest brushing 2 or 3 times a week for about 10-15 minute periods. You don’t want to stress them out or make this a long lasting punishment. So make it short and give them lovins and treats during the brush out! Any questions, you know who to ask! Good luck!

Need help choosing a brush? Scroll through the photos below to see which one works best for your dogs coat.

*Please be aware of brush burn while brushing out your pet. Use gentle strokes for not longer than about 15 minutes. To check for brush burn, brush the hair back to see the skin. If it is red or turning bright pink, move on to another area of the dog, give him/her a break, or stop completely for the day. ☺️

I just had my Papillon groomed there, and I am not happy! He looks like someone just went crazy chopping with the scissors! Also, after I paid from the car, I had to wait well over 10 minutes still to get him. I only finally got him because I stopped someone to ask what was going on, considering someone pulled up after me, paid, and his dogs were brought right out! Peppie has gone there before and looked good, but this time was absolutely awful! I won’t be back. Very disappointing.
Great job with my dog Ava she will be back thank you Dale Helms
I had my dog Ava over there this morning for a bath they did a great job with her I just found a great place for grooming Thank you all very much Dale Helms
Thank you Miss Gabby for taking my “look” from homeless to handsome again! 💜, Oliver 🐾
No dog should come home looking like this. I was lied to and told my dogs were “doing great!” My dogs were kept in wet concrete kennels that were sprayed w chemicals resulting in severe BURNS. There is a long list of things that went wrong with their stay and NO ONE called me to tell me that my babies needed help nor were they rendered treatment or comforted. Dozens of other horror stories continue to come out and the sad part is, we all PAID good money to basically have our pets neglected to the point of injury. No refund. No explanation. NOTHING. I was also threatened by a mom of one of the employees publicly. Thankfully it was all documented & reported before she deleted it, after being called out on it. This will probably be deleted too. But I am not stopping until shown the video footage from their cameras. I want to know what happened here and who was ultimately responsible.
DO NOT BRING YOUR ANIMALS HERE. THE STAFF ENJOYS ABUSING THEM AND THEN LYING ABOUT IT.
We stand with you all. Milo loves “his girls”. We will be bringing him in for his bath soon.
Love Aboard the Ark! We have taken all five of our big boy dogs, 4 Golden retrievers and one Great Bernese, there for many years. We take them there about once a month to board . Always the best of care! The grooming is exceptional there also! Our boys actually run to the door to see the girls at the Ark! Thank you for your care!
How dare you treat animals in your care as horribly as I have seen!
They need 2 stand up 2 what they offer!!! Dogs getting rashes that are out of control.
Happy third birthday Kramer.
Thank you for loving my Kramer and taking care of him.
