Services Provided


One Fine Canine now specializes only in wire, double coated and broken coated shedding breeds that benefit from having their coats "Carded,"  "Pet Stripped" and "Blown Out." Please see descriptions below to learn more:


#1-"Full Groom Services:"

This service is for breeds which require some full body trimming and clipper work as well as having their coats carded or stripped. Breeds such as: Spaniels, Setters, Long and Wire Coated Dachshunds, Terriers, and the like.

Includes: A warm bath with spa quality shampoos and conditioners that are tailored to your pet’s skin and coat needs. Hand drying on the table. Nails trimmed and filed.  Ears are checked and cleaned/plucked as recommended by your Veterinarian.  Breed specific coat work tailored to your lifestyle needs. Treats, a bow or bandana and lots of praise to top it off. 

I am only taking on clients who are willing to be on a 4-8 week pre-booked schedule. 
Schedule will be determined at your first appointment and is dependent on breed and amount of coat.


                                          
                                                               
                                                 

Carding and Stripping: While we do not provide full body stripping for show dogs, we do strive to maintain high standards of pet grooming. We do "card" and "strip" some pet's coats to help maintain or to help restore the natural coat texture and to help promote healthy skin and coats.
Over time a coat that is just being shaved/cut off can be ruined. The texture softens, the color fades, and the coat becomes thicker and packed making the dog very uncomfortable. This also makes the coat harder to maintain. Trimming the coat without carding can also cause skin problems common especially common in Terriers and Spaniels. With carding/stripping of the excess/dead coat from these breeds we can help your dog look and feel its best and also in some cases improve skin health. 
And coats that are regularly carded/stripped are easier to maintain at home.

#2- "Shed-Less Service:"

This service is for both smooth, short coated breeds and the long, double coated breeds that benefit from having their coat "Blown Out" or otherwise known as: having their excess undercoat removed. (yep, even short coated breeds have an undercoat that sheds!) Breeds such as Blue Heelers, Hounds, Retrievers, Collies, Pugs, Papillons, Corgis, Australian Shepherds, and like coated breeds. 
This service provides a deep conditioning coat releasing bath, hand drying on the table- never in a cage, a thorough coat combing, pads of feet trimmed, nails trimmed and filed, a bow or bandana, and lots of treats and praise to top it off. 
80% or more of your dog's dead undercoat can be comfortably removed in one appointment.


 

Dogs that come every 4-8 weeks are cooler, healthier, cleaner and shed much less at home. Toe nails are also more easily kept at a comfortable length. Toe nails allowed to grow too long become uncomfortable for your dog and dew claws can curl back into the dog's leg. Coats that are allowed to go longer without proper grooming get packed tight at the skin level which decreases air flow, causing the dog to become unable to effectively regulate his body temperature, develop skin issues, get matted easily and more likely to harbor fleas. Matted/packed coats pull the skin tight causing a lot of discomfort for your dog.

#3-"Puppy Intro Package:"
The most important groom of your puppy’s life is it's first groom!



To help your puppy have a good experience at the groomer please brush, comb and handle all areas of your pup daily.  This is an important part of raising and training a puppy.  This is best done when your puppy is tired and ready to be calm. I tired puppy is more accepting of body handling.
Your pup’s first experience to the scissors, clippers and dryers, if not done with its breeder, should be done with a professional by 4 months of age.
Includes:  A Package of 3 pre-scheduled short appointments. Each appointment introduces your pup to various grooming experiences, at the puppy's pace. Puppies are never forced to endure an experience they are not confident enough to handle. Experiences include: body handling, a warm bath and fluff drying, the sounds and the feel of clippers and dryers, brushes, combs and scissors. We build up to trimming the face, feet, nails and sanitary areas as needed. Topped off with a bow or bandana and lots of praise. We want your puppy to grow up to be a confident, well mannered adult dog, on and off the grooming table.


A Puppy Intro Package Review:

"As a former puppy raiser for Guiding Eyes For the Blind Organization, I knew about the importance of socializing young puppies to new situations at an early age.  After my family got our first Cavalier King Charles Spaniel puppy, a breed that requires regular grooming & carding, I scheduled several “Puppy Intro” visits for him to visit Beth at One Fine Canine Professional Grooming Salon.  I wanted to make sure that my dog was relaxed and comfortable with the groomer, as I had heard many stories of dogs being very stressed or uncooperative when they were groomed.

The first few visits were short, as my puppy got to experience many new sights, smells and sensations:  sitting in the tub and watching the water spray from the hose, standing on the table and having his toes touched, feeling the warm air blow from the dryer, being brushed and combed.  Beth worked slowly and patiently with him, making sure to end each session before he became stressed or overwhelmed, giving him lots of gentle praise and encouragement, and rewarding him with tasty treats!  At the end of each session, Beth often gave me things that I could work on with my puppy at home to make things easier the next time, such as getting him used to standing on a table or touching his ears gently.

As the sessions progressed, the appointments got longer and Beth began to introduce my puppy to the different aspects of being professionally groomed.  He became more confident and relaxed, which made the sessions more enjoyable for both him and Beth!  Beth has become one of my dog’s favorite people and he looks forward to his regular grooming sessions with her!

I highly recommend starting your puppy on the journey to being a well-groomed dog as soon as possible, and Puppy Intro sessions are a great way to start!" -Pam Boy.


*for pups 8 weeks to 5 months. Older pups or pups needing full body trimming will require a full groom price.


Puppy Intro Package: $45. Includes: 3 pre-scheduled appointments, each set 1-2 weeks apart. Each appointment is 30-45 minutes long.
($45 to be paid at the time of first prescheduled appointment. Non-refundable.)
