The Fairy Dogmother offers a complete line of fine grooming services to bring out the best of appearance and personality in any breed. We work carefully, never rush, and do not overbook appointments.

Pricing
There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Therefore, there is no set pricing for grooming. Our groomers set individual prices for each pet at the time of grooming, largely based on the time required to complete the chosen service. Factors which determine the price of a service include:

  • Amount of scissor work
  • Brushing
  • Degree of undercoat removal
  • Clipping
  • Degree of matting
  • Difficulty of the cut
  • Disposition of the animal
  • Drying time
  • Length of hair
  • Size of pet
  • Health condition of pet


All prices INCLUDE sales tax.

Poodles:
Toy & Miniature Poodles (under 20 lbs), on a 5-6 week maximum grooming schedule:  $100-130 for a basic lamb cut (essentially one length over the entire body, hand-scissored top knot, ears, and tail, clean face (shaved face).

**Clean feet will be an additional $10-20 depending on how your dog handles the process.  Some customers ask for clean feet, which we will certainly attempt, however most dogs do not enjoy having clean feet done.  They tug and pull back on their feet, which increases the stress on your dog and the potential for injury, including clipper nicks and irritation.  If your dog is amiable to clean feet, we will do it, however if your dog is adverse to clean feet, we will not put them through the stress.

Standard Poodles and Poodle Mixes over 40 lbs:  We are very sorry, but we are currently not accepting any more Standard Poodles or Poodle Mixes over 40 lbs into our schedule.  We have found that even a very basic cut without styling on these dogs takes a significant amount of time – usually about 2 hours each dog, which is a lot on the dog.  In a salon, they are able to take a break between stages of the grooming process, and in the van we have to just work straight through.  The dogs tend to get tired and become apprehensive about the groom.  They are subsequently less than excited to see us the next time.
