Will I get a discount if I have two or more dogs?
Since we strive to maintain low grooming prices, we do not offer discounts for two or more dogs. We do offer $5.00 off each groom for first time customers.
Is it too cold to have my dog groomed?
Do you tranquilize pets before you bathe or groom them?
No, we attempt to work with all pets, including aggressive ones. Some pets are not able to be groomed and in that case, the groomers will discuss the issues with the owners and advise them to speak with his/her vet. The vet and the owner can then make a decision to use a mild sedative if necessary. Medications may help prevent injuries to the pet and groomers and reduce the pets stress level.
How do you dry my pet?
We use a pet friendly air dryer and then use fans.
What type and size of animals will you groom?
All Aboard grooms all types, breeds and sizes of dogs and cats. We currently have 2 wash stations: 1 for smaller animals and 1 for larger animals.
