Pricing @WAGS

Discount Services…

@WAGS we think your dog deserves special attention on salon day.  If you are looking for discount pricing, there are a lot of places that lure you in with lower pricing, then up-charge you for the better shampoos, colognes and decorative bows and bandanas. Or, you don’t upgrade and your dog gets a quick and basic service, often by inexperienced staff using harsh chemicals and dangerous cage dryers.  @WAGS, you’ll find our prices are a great value for the service we provide, without all the gimmicks.  You’ll find cheaper, you won’t find better. 

We give all our new customers $10 off to try us out, all you have to do is ask for the new customer discount.

Did You Know…

The bath is a critical part of the grooming process.  Most places use a basic shampoo and conditioner with harsh stripping chemicals, then they rinse it quickly, throw the dog in a crate with a warm blower and move on to the next bath.  @WAGS we lovingly wash your dog with safe, natural, healthy, pH-balanced, plant-based shampoos and conditioners.  We gently massage the products in, down to the skin.  This takes time.  Then, we let the dog soak in the products for several minutes before we rinse thoroughly.  Then we strip much of the water off by hand, and towel dry softly and carefully.  Your dog is then moved to a hand cool air safe and attended blow dryer table for the remaining drying and brush-out process.  Senior dogs or dogs irritated by the process, are given several breaks to keep their nerves calm so the overall stress is reduced to a minimum. Oh yeah, treats are given for good behavior too. During the dry process, we apply a soft and natural cologne that makes your dog smell amazing for days after leaving the salon.  Bathtime for some dogs is a couple hour process before we even start grooming.  And the de-shedding process when needed can take 2 or 3 hours.  It’s very tedious and meticulous work.  But @WAGS, we do it the right way!

Up-front and simple pricing works for most dogs.  Sometimes dogs need special care for various reasons and we have to charge additional.  We will discuss additional charges with you upon check-in.
