Being both the owner and operator, I am and will be the only one grooming your dog - bathing too! You are guaranteed consistent quality with each and every visit.
Every dog visiting Lakeside Grooming will enjoy:
Having been working with animals my entire adult life, I know how to handle them. I provide a stress-free, safe environment. I know how to put them at ease, calm them, and make sure they are comfortable. There is simple behavior I display to make them feel safe and to establish a bond with mutual trust. No matter how sweet, nervous, high-strung, or gentle your pet may be, they are in good hands at Lakeside Grooming.
I am well versed in medical knowledge after being in this industry for so long. I'll happily discuss any worries or concerns you may have regarding your precious fur babies. To ensure all dogs safety and protection, they are never allowed to do any jumping, and they are never left alone. Each dog is handled with tender loving care. I happily accommodate any of their special needs to ensure they are comfortable .
There are so many, I don't know where to begin. (and I wont bore or disgust you) But I can assure you I have a solution to help alleviate and ease any skin concerns you and your pup may have. Ensuring your pet leaves feeling less irritated, healthy and happy.
I am meticulous in everything I do. And the most important piece to grooming all pets is the brushing and caring of their coat. No clip or bath will come out right if the fur is not properly groomed. I will always completely remove all undercoat and mats. I will never wash-in your dog's mats because it is easier. (which is something I have seen done all too often!) Leaving knots or undercoat in your dog's coat can result in many health problems, from serious skin conditions and scratching to overheating!
Like any profession, time and experience perfect your skill. I have had the opportunity to groom each individual breed several hundred times over the past 40 years. I know each specific clip intimately. Your dog will leave Lakeside Grooming looking exactly as it is supposed to. But should you prefer a different clip than your breed's standard clip, I am flexible enough to happily fulfill your request.
Having been in the industry so long I have seen what products work well and which ones don't! I only invest in the best products on the market - from cages, to driers, scissors, clippers, de-matt rakes, brushes, etc... By taking your dog to Lakeside Grooming you are treating them to the best!
As with any industry, I get solicited to buy and try everything and anything. And having been at this for so long, we have tried them all. I only use quality shampoos and conditioners that I truly trust. I do not deviate from these products to ensure there are no surprises (or irritation) for you and your pet. I am not promising your dog won't have a reaction (though chances are very slim) to something I might use, but I do ensure we can quickly correct it.
I think this is very important for the safety and health of your pet to keep a clean environment. It is difficult to remove doggie smells completely... But I guarantee I put extreme effort in to cleaning up and sanitizing my space.
