How do you handle aggressive pets?
We understand pets may be scared or stressed when coming in for grooming. As such, we are patient and willing to work with every pet that is brought to us. We also understand that some pets may be aggressive due to them not being used to the grooming experience. It is important that you work at home with them to get them used to being groomed. We are always happy to provide you with different options to help your pet become accustomed to the grooming process.
It’s very crucial that we keep your pet safe as well as the safety of the groomer. If after the 3rdvisit of your pet being to aggressive, Puff & Fluff will then determine if we are the right fit for your pet. Thank you for your understanding.
I have a local rescue that is a 501c3, or I foster for a local rescue with that requirement, do you offer any discounts for rescue organizations?
Yes, we love working with rescues! We offer half off services for the first three visits, after that, each service per dog will be full price. This discount does not apply to personal pets that you have.
I have an event that I would like Puff & Fluff to donate too. How can I submit a donation request?
Thank you for thinking of Puff & Fluff! We love helping out our community. All donation requests can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Someone other than myself is dropping off my pet, how will I let you know what I want?
At Puff & Fluff, we always do as instructed by the person dropping off. If you are having someone else drop off your pet, but have specific instructions, we ask that you stop in before your appointment so we can discuss them with you, or you may give us instructions over the phone (you can even send us pictures via text message). Please keep in mind that we are not able to guarantee haircuts until we the day of when we see your pet and an assessment of the coat is completed, at which point, changes to the previously-discussed instructions may need to be made and will, again, be the responsibility of the person dropping off.
What is included in a bath and brush?
A Bath and Brush Service includes: Bath with hypo shampoo and a blueberry facial, a massage, blow dry, nails, glands, and ear cleaning.
Disclaimer: Pricing is determined on the individual pet and is based on the size of the pet, behavior, & condition of the coat. If your breed is not on the list, please ask us for pricing.
Please note: if your pet has sensitivities, we will need to use a hypo face was instead. If have any concerns or questions, please give us a call or discuss them at check in.
What form of dryers do you use?
At Puff & Fluff, we use velocity dryers as our main drying source, but we also allow for pets to air dry, or sit near a fan, if they prefer. Pets are always dried individually, and always under direct supervision as we feel this method is the safest for your pet. Velocity dryers can be loud, so we will also use “happy hoodies” to cover your pet’s ears, so they do not hear the noise of the dryer. Each pet looks so cute in his or her happy hoodies!
Where are the pets when they are waiting for their spa day?
We have a few different options to ensure both you and your pet have a wonderful experience with us!
- They can be placed in their own kennel with enough space to sit back and relax.
- They can hang out with the staff near their stations.
- You can bring their items and carriers with them, making them feel right at home.
What Discounts Do You Offer?
We offer many different discounts! This include monthly deal days and senior, military, emergency response, and student discounts. Please refer to our Pawsome Specials for more information.
Discounts may not be combined
How should I bring my pets in for grooming?
When bringing your pups to Puff & Fluff for grooming, it is very important to bring them in on a leash with their collar or harness snug on them to avoid them slipping out when coming in.
When bringing your kitties in for grooming needs, please make sure they are in their carriers as cats tend to feel more comfortable in their carries. Also, cats may get spooked by another pet or a person, so please ensure that the carriers are secure when bring them in.
My pet’s haircut/service is not quite what I expected, can I get it corrected?
Absolutely! We always try our best to achieve the haircut/service you would like. We want you feeling happy with your pet’s service and grooming experience. If you notice anything that you are unsatisfied with, please let us know within 72 hours. We will correct it free of charge within this timeframe. We will add the changes to the record on file so we know what to do differently the next time.
Please know any phone calls or text messages sent over hours may not be responded to until the next business morning.
What is the difference between grooming blades and guard combs?
Great question! Grooming blades are used for shorter haircuts. Guard combs are used for longer trims. The guard combs usually result in a softer, fluffier appearance, while the grooming blades are good for a smooth, short finish. Both options give your pet a fresh haircut. If you are unsure, don’t worry! We are more than happy to help you decide of the haircut and style that works best for you and your pet.
What if I have a problem and need to speak with the owners?
