We love being able to offer your pet a private, low-stress appointment where he is groomed start to finish using high quality, premium products and equipment. Unfortunately, due to rising costs and inflation and being unable to absorb these costs any longer, we will be increasing our grooming prices effective October 1, 2021. Thank you for your understanding.

2022 Suspension of Annual Pre-booking
With addition to staff, changes in how we schedule appointments (staggering versus back to back), difficulties in refilling appointments and COVID, we will suspend yearly appointments for 2022. We strongly recommend that those pets on a maintenance schedule make their next appointment upon checkout. Thank you.
[12/07/21] 2021 Pre-Booking is complete!
The 2021 annual pre-booking is complete and you can pick up your schedule any time. Calls have been placed advising of your first 2021 appointment. Please be sure to read the letter on the reverse side of the schedule for important updates.
We offer this program to clients who want to keep their pet on a maintenance schedule. This allows the client to have their preferred day/time and a guaranteed holiday appointment. It also helps in that there shouldn't be additional fees for mat removal or behavior as a regularly groomed pet on a maintenance schedule will have little to no matting and they become accustomed to grooming.
Please understand that this is a monumental task and takes a minimum of 40 hours to complete. With the addition of an employee and how we book appointments, it is very important to not be moving appointments around. Clients who need a more fluid schedule are recommended to make appointments as needed or pre-booking one appointment at a time.
Knowing your schedule in advance should eliminate short notice cancellations. With the difficulty in being able to re-schedule or refill an appointment, we ask for notification as soon as you are aware of the conflict. Please do not wait until the third business day. If you need to review our policies, they can be found here [Grooming Policies] or you can review the actual contract here [Client Forms].
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call us. Thank you!
[11/11/20] 2021 Pre-Booking is now closed!
I just wanted to take a
moment to go over the 2021 pre-booking schedule which is now closed. Our new
hours next year will be Tuesday through Friday from 8:00 to 4:30 (with the
grooming salon closing at 4:00).
Saturday hours will remain the same.
There are three changes to the schedule
* Appointments will be
staggered, so while we will do our best to book you by your preference, please
note that the actual appointment can be within a half hour or more either side
of your preference.
* We are only scheduling
those that keep a schedule of eight weeks or less.
* Anyone who had
multiple cancellations has been removed from our set schedule for the year. (We
shouldn't have any difficulties getting you scheduled. Please call to schedule your appointment with
an approximate two-week lead time.)
If you have any questions, please don't
hesitate to reach out and thank you for your understanding!
CAT EXCLUSIVE SPAW DAYS! While appointments for cats can
be flexible throughout the week, we have designated select days to be
CAT ONLY spa days. The following
dates are designated for cat spaw days (please note they are all
Wednesdays): Unfortunately, we have not scheduled any cat
exclusive spaw days this year. Once we get back to normal, we hope to
continue this in the future.
These days are in high demand, so book early!
Due to rising expenses (including State mandated changes), we are having a price adjustment effective January
Our salon necessitates a higher cost for grooms as For K-9s & Felines, LLC offers your pet a private

regularly. We belong to eight national and international grooming associations
and attend educational seminars throughout the year which allows us to keep up

certified groomer and has a certification for Pet First Aid/CPR.
We had written a couple of articles on our Facebook page when we had prior pricing adjustments and posted them as Notes. There are two Notes actually, one for the 2017 restructure and one for the 2018 increase. You can easily access them by clicking on the hyperlinked year.
We hope you will agree that our services are
invaluable to you and your pet! And we thank you so very much for all of your
