Groom times vary based on the service your pet is receiving, as well as the size, coat condition, and behavior of your pet. XS-M dogs typically take 1-1.5 hours. L-XL dogs typically take 2-3. And XXL dogs can be from 3-4 hours. Cat services are usually much quicker, and can range from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours. Senior pets, or pets with physical limitations may take longer to ensure they receive breaks throughout the groom.
We typically do not allow the owners to be present during your pets grooming service. Pets get very excited and anxious when they see their owners. It is rather difficult and dangerous to work on a pet that is distracted by their owners attention, and we want their experience to be as safe as possible. Here at Canine Corner, we do our best to establish a relationship with your pet in a calm environment without the distraction of other pets or humans to keep your pet as relaxed as possible throughout the service.
We understand that every pet is different, and if under any circumstance we require assistance with your pet, we will make exceptions as needed.
Yes! Don’t let our name fool you, we are 100% accepting of our feline friends.
Absolutely. Please note that all of our breed clips will be done using clippers, we do not offer hand stripping at this time.
We strategically schedule our clients so that your pet is the only one in our care at the time of your appointment, so that they do not need to be crated during their service. For cats, you may leave your own carrier for your cat to be placed in while awaiting pick up. Your pet will also have access to fresh water at all times.
*Crates are available if needed to give your pet a break or if you’re running late for pick up*
No. As stated above, we do our best to book our appointments to not overlap so that your pet has our undivided attention. In the event that your appointment does overlap another, your pet will not come into contact with any other pets.
We will not accept any pets under the age of 8 weeks. We encourage you to bring your pets in before the 16 week mark to get them accustomed to the grooming process early on in life. We keep things simple for puppies and kittens to ensure that they get used to the handling and sensation of the grooming tools, and don’t get overwhelmed too quickly. Your pets first few grooming appointments will be kept to the basics: bath, nail trimming, ear cleaning, brushing and trimming around the face, feet and hygienic areas. We will not provide full body haircuts for puppies or kittens until they’re at least 5 months of age.
There’s nothing more disappointing than having expectations that aren’t fulfilled. We would hate to have that happen to you here at Canine Corner. If there is something you’re unhappy with, please let us know so that we can use your feedback to improve in the future. We are happy to offer a complimentary touch-up within the first week of your groom for the things that can be fixed.
We accept cash, credit (visa, mastercard, american express), debit, cash, e-transfer or you may also request an invoice be emailed to you for online payment.
As much as we appreciate a 24 hour notice, we understand that 💩 happens!
However, if you fail to show up for 2 appointments in a row, we do ask that you put a 50% down deposit on your next appointment. If that appointment is also abandoned, we will no longer book you future appointments.
