Shag & Wag Grooming LLC
I rescue/foster shelter dogs and I called Shag and Wag about my newest little rescue dog. This dog was dirty and in desperate need of grooming. He already has one strike since one of his ears stays up and the other down. We thought a good "makeover" would help him in getting adopted. The owners couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. They even gave me a discount since he is a shelter pet. When I walked in, there were numerous flyers for rescue shelters and dogs who need homes. They also told me I could put a flyer in there for this dog. They really do care about your animals. When I picked him up, he looked like a new dog and smelled great. They even put a snowman scarf on him. Now, because of Shag and Wag, little Snowy will have a better chance at being adopted and finding his forever home. Thank you so much! A+++++++!!!!
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
