UPDATE: Hand stripping on mixed breeds and cairns, Coat thinning and De-shedding (for those who dont want to cut) are specialties at Canine Design . Only SMALL dogs handstripped, except German Wire Haired Pointers being the exception. No stripping for Airdales or Giant Schnauzers.
I NO LONGER DO "SHOW" STRIPPING FOR SMALL TERRIERS SUCH AS IRISH, LAKELAND, OR WELSH. ONLY LIGHT DUTY TO NEATEN UP.
Matted dogs or long hair scissor cuts in the upper range. These are just guidelines. Not exact quotes. If you call about a quote, these ranges will be the answer. Exact quotes cannot be provided over the phone or until I get into a groom and see time it takes. If you want less than a full cut (bath, brush, trimming furnishings and feet) it will be less.
For those who are fearful, not used to grooming or senior pets who might be in pain, we take great care to make it a pleasant experience over a "perfect haircut". That means the essentials of a good bath, nails, cleaning up face and privates, and an overall cut to the best of our ability and what they will tolerate. Dogs in these categories can be extremely uncooperative so we'll do our best to focus on not traumatizing the dog. Please understand these precious ones take extra time and may warrant extra charge.
