Welcome to Resort Spaw
Resort Spaw Groomers are proficient in AKC breed standard haircuts, but we mostly enjoy grooming pets to fit their owner’s lifestyles. That means we will groom dogs however you as the owners want- whether it is to the breed standard, puppy cuts or something creative. We not only love dogs, but we also like to talk to people and we strive to always have open communication with our clients. This means we listen to what you want and help by giving you tips on how to keep your dog(s) in good shape at home.
Grooming dogs is not just about appearance, it is also about maintaining health.
When we groom a dog, we look over every inch of skin for any lumps, bumps and/or irritations that you as the dog may not notice. Other health factors of grooming are:
- keeping the nails at a healthy length to prevent hip and back problems,
- preventative dental maintenance with tooth brushing,
- regular ear cleaning to keep an eye on them, and
- taking control of tangled hair and getting rid of loose undercoat to make sure skin is breathing and pores are healthy.
Regular grooming is a key component to maintaining a healthy and happy dog.
The most important thing for the Resort Spaw is making sure the dogs are happy and comfortable.
We are extremely passionate about animals and we insist they are treated with loving kindness. Dogs typically don’t like being groomed and are nervous; therefore the most important tools we use are patience, compassion, understanding and loving kindness. Dogs can and do get less anxious over time and we are willing to build the kind of relationship with pets needed for animals to be able to trust and feel more comfortable. Most dogs visit a groomer more often than they even see their own veterinarians and it is important for the animal to build a relationship with this person. We want people to keep coming back to us for grooming and form a lifetime relationship with the employees in our facility. We do this for the dogs’ sake and we are passionate about upholding these principles.
From shampoos, hair cuts and flea treatments to skin care and shed management treatments, your pampered pet will go home looking great as well as feeling great! All of our grooming services are available by appointment. Spaw services can also be scheduled while your dog is here for daycare, boarding or training, based on availability.
