Safety comes first for everyone during the grooming process for both our groomers and your pet. Please inform us prior to grooming if your pet has bitten someone or has past aggression issues. We are able to handle difficult pets, but only if we are aware and prepared. We will set up a schedule and work with them and their behavior to the best of our ability but we will not push any animals. If a dog is so traumatized or stressed about the grooming process, we will stop the service and recommend you speak with your veterinarian about medication to help calm your pet so he can be groomed safely. You will only be charged for the amount of work accomplished to that point.
Grooming procedures sometimes can be stressful, especially for a senior pet or a pet with health problems. As they have a greater chance of injury, these pets will be groomed for cleanliness and comfort, in styles that will not add to their stress.To reduce the risk of any injury, our groomers will not groom dogs who are older than 12 years old. For senior dogs under 12 years old,we reserve the right to stop the grooming process at any time if we feel it is in the best interest of the dog. We will use extra care and patience for older pets; however, we will not be held responsible for any reaction due to the mental or physical stress of grooming the geriatric pet.
Removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts, or abrasions due to warts, moles, or skin folds trapped in the mats. Heavy matting can also trap moisture near the pet’s skin allowing mold, fungus, or bacteria to grow, revealing skin irritations that exist prior to the grooming process. After effects of mat removal procedures can include itchiness, skin redness, self-inflicted irritations or abrasions and failure of hair to re-grow. Shaved pets are also prone to sunburn should either have sunscreen applied daily or should be kept out of the sun until the hair grows sufficiently to protect the skin. In some cases pets may also exhibit brief behavioral changes.
It is our policy to de-mat a dog's coat only once in order to make the pet comfortable and to start re-building the coat. De-matting can be painful for your dog and is unpleasant for both dog and groomer alike. After the de-matting process you should be able to maintain the dog’s coat between grooming appointments. The Bark Shoppe reserves the right to refuse grooming if your dog becomes heavily matted again after the initial de-matting. De-matting carries an additional charge that might not be found until the beginning of grooming, but we will notify the owner of the need to dematte and the charge immediately before commencing the service. Those pets with such heavy matting will have to then be shaved. We will not attempt to save the coat after this initial de-matting.
