Grooming Injuries. Unlike humans, dogs don’t always cooperate with the groomer and it is possible during any grooming procedure for your dog to get a minor skin clipping or skin irritation from the clippers and professional grooming equipment, especially for close shaves on sensitive areas like belly, feet, and face. Nail clipping and grinding may sometimes cause minor bleeding from the nail. While we take great care to avoid this, it is possible. It is our policy to inform you if we notice any problem caused by grooming procedures. I understand this is a normal part of the grooming process and cannot always be avoided.

To cover this staff and overtime expense, I agree to pay $15 for every half hour I am late. I will call before closing to let them know I am running late with an ETA. I understand WAGS does not offer overnight boarding but will seek overnight boarding arrangments at your expense if we don’t hear from you before closing with an ETA.
