Frequently asked questions

Do I need to schedule an appointment in advance?

Making a pet grooming appointment ahead of time ensures that you can book the preferred day and time best suited for you. We’re happy to try to accommodate a last minute booking if you wish to give us a call, but to avoid disappointment it is recommended to book in advance.

What vaccinations do you require?

In order to maintain a safe environment for all our customers, we do require all pets to have their vaccinations up to date. You should wait at least 7 days after shots before having your dog groomed. The waiting period helps to ensure your pet has not suffered any side effects and isn’t sore at the injection site, which can cause irritability or lethargy

What health issues should I bring to your attention?

All pets must be in good health prior to receiving any of the K9 Club Dog Grooming services. Our staff should be notified by the owners of any on going long term issues such as sensitive skin, previous operations, or particular ‘no-go’ areas for your dog at the beginning of every appointment. The more info we have on your dog’s well being, the better quality of service we can deliver!

How long will it take to groom my dog?

The amount of time it takes for pet grooming varies by breed and type of service, but you can usually plan on it taking from 90 min’s – 2.5 hours.  

What do I do if my dog is matted?

Call and book your dog in as soon as possible. Please remember the severity of the matting will affect the grooming time.

Do you use kennel/box dryers?


Do you groom cats?

No, we do not currently groom cats.

How often should my dog be groomed?

Nails and ears should be checked at least once a month by a groomer. Time between grooming can vary from 6 - 12 weeks, depending on coat type and the breed of your dog.
