Featured testimonial

“My husband and I have brought our dogs to Silver Maple since 2006. We use them for doggie day care, for boarding and for grooming. All the employees go out of their way to treat us and our dog as if we are family. We trust them totally with our precious four-legged family member - we know Samson is in very good hands whether he is there for a day of play or when we are out of town. It is obvious the entire staff loves our dog as if he was their own!”

The frequency of grooming depends on your dog's breed, coat type, and lifestyle. Generally, dogs need grooming every 4-6 weeks to maintain a healthy coat and skin, though some breeds may require more frequent grooming.

Inform your groomer about your dog's past experiences. A skilled groomer will take extra care to ensure your dog feels comfortable and safe, using gentle handling and patience.

The duration of a grooming session can vary depending on the size of the dog, coat condition, and specific services requested. On average, it can take anywhere from 1 to 4 hours.

Absolutely! Groomers are happy to accommodate specific requests for haircuts or styling. It's helpful to bring a photo or detailed description of the desired look. Keep in mind, the feasibility may depend on your dog's coat type and condition.

Just make sure your dog is up-to-date on vaccinations.  It's also helpful to acclimate your dog to being handled, especially around the paws and ears.

Silver Maple doesn't have breed restrictions but some breeds may require specific knowledge and expertise. Most of our groomers are equipped to handle a wide range of dog breeds with varying coat types. However, some may specialize in certain breeds, so it's important to ask in advance.

Notify your groomer about any skin conditions or allergies your dog may have. We offer hypoallergenic or medicated shampoo treatments and will customize the grooming process to ensure your dog's comfort.

While not mandatory, tipping is a common way to show appreciation for your groomer's hard work, especially if you're pleased with the service. A tip of 15-20% is customary.

The cost of dog grooming can vary widely depending on several factors, including the size of your dog, the breed, the condition of the coat, and the type of grooming services you're looking for.

It's always best to discuss your dog's specific needs with the groomer beforehand to get an accurate estimate. Keep in mind that regular grooming not only helps your dog look their best but also contributes to their overall health and well-being.
