an update about Doug.

As many of our existing clients know, Doug has moved to the Valley to act as care giver for his parents. While we are saddened to see him go, we know this is a necessity in these troubling times. We are happy to announce that he will be grooming from North Kingston!
Congratulations Doug on opening your shop "The Dog Father". We know you will be have as much success there as you did here.
We will post more details as they become available.

Dear valued client,

 

I know that the growing concern around COVID-19 has everyone feeling uneasy, especially as we face more changes to our daily routines and future plans. This is why we are personally reaching out to you today: to let you know that at Your Groomers, we feel it too, and we want to help where we can. 

 

I know that your main priorities are keeping your families and pets safe. Like everyone, we have been taking further precautions, such as enhanced cleaning, offering hand sanitizer wipes, and encouraging strong hygiene practices among our team members. 

 

While we fully intent to maintain full working hours of Tue-Sat 8am - 3pm, keep in mind that we do leave daily when the last pet is finished and as we may see some clients need to rebook due to self quarantine or other reasons, there may be days that we finish earlier than normal. Please call ahead for all drop in appointments until further notice.

 

We’ve also done our best to stock up on the products that we may need to provide the services you have come to know and love. It’s true that the supply of some essentials is becoming increasingly limited, and for customers, that’s frustrating. Know that we are working closely with our suppliers to ensure that we are replenishing as quickly as possible. We are sourcing products as quickly as possible and hope to see no impact on our services.

 

Just like you, we are doing the best that we can to navigate these uncertain times as they continue to evolve. We are working to help protect the well-being of our customers, and team. We are all facing uncertainty, and we are offering our support, flexibility, and understanding to help us all manage both our health and peace of mind.

 

I realize this may not be the first e-mail of this nature that you have received. Every business is doing their best to help right now. I find that reassuring, because I personally believe it’s a testament to people’s true natures: in times of uncertainty, we want to offer our support to one another. So, let’s continue to do just that, and move forward together. 

 

 

Sincerely,

Your Groomers

Joel Brewer

*we close for holidays, and daily once the last client has been groomed to perfection.

Did you arrive early to pick up your pup? Waiting for a walk in nail trim? Have a seat, enjoy a bar to support MADD Canada, have a glass of water.

We haven't forgotten the kids either, we have complimentary bonbons.

We like to support local artists so we source many of our decorations/supplies from local artists/merchants when possible.

Grooming
Grooming

We had to do EVERYTHING in one little room at our old location. There was no way to keep the dog hair from timing or drying from getting all over everything, including customers. Our new location is very open, but still separated to allow for containment of the messy hair to specific areas. We love it and it seems clients do too. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

SPACE
SPACE

It's wonderful having dedicated spaces for Reception, Grooming, Bathing, Drying etc. It makes for a much more efficient work flow. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Elbow room.
Elbow room.

Our new grooming area is almost as big as our old shop! It's so nice to have dedicated permanent homes for all of our tools. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Familiar
Familiar

We maintained a familiar feeling by keeping the same wonderful colour palette we had used on our last update at our old shop. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Tools
Tools

Quality grooming tools are expensive, but we buy the best to ensure we can do the best work possible. A groomer is only as good as his tools. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

More tools.
More tools.

Even quality tools can have down time so we try to keep back ups on hand, just in case. BE PREPARED as my grandfather would say. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Containment
Containment

While we love our very open floor plan, it is nice to have the ability to close sections off, like the drying area. This way we can contain the massive amounts of flying hair that results in blowing out double coated dogs. No more wading in Samoyed hair up to your knees! Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Cleanliness
Cleanliness

We use best in industry sanitization solutions for our clippers and blades. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Kennels available
Kennels available

We prefer kennel free, but we also understand that some fur babies prefer the safe feeling they get from being kennelled. And some fur babies can be too playful fort their own good so we do sometimes kennel for everyone's safety, but don't be shocked if you walk in and see a guest or two wandering around in the grooming area. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Hooked
Hooked

We just love our dog bum lead hooks from Ikea, you have probably noticed them around the shop. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Scenery
Scenery

The dogs love that they can see outside when they are on the grooming tables. They love to watch people coming and going by. I think it's a nice distraction for them. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Festive
Festive

We try to be a happy, festive, cheery lot. Feel free to be open with us and greet us with your favourite greeting. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Closing time
Closing time

It's a wonderful feeling at the end of the day when the lights are going down and you know you helped all those fur babies get clean and look and feel their best. It can be such a rewarding job. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Assistace
Assistace

We use hydraulic tables so larger dogs and get on without much effort and we have seniors/disabled harnesses to help those that may have a more difficult time standing. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

A new perspective
A new perspective

It's so nice having the separation of a wall between reception and grooming to help keep mess to a minimum, but it's great that we have a large window so we can still keep an eye on everything. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Accessorize
Accessorize

We like to try to give each client a little something special to say thank you for supporting small/local business. They aren't much, but we love our little bows, ties, bandanas etc. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Refreshing
Refreshing

We have a small refreshments area so if you are running behind because you had to drop fido off before you go to work, grab a coffee or tea or a chocolate from our refreshment area. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Behind the scenes
Behind the scenes

We have so much space that you get to enjoy, and other areas most of you are probably glad you won't be exposed to here. No more getting wet when a dog in the tub shakes or looking like a snow man because we were drying a Samoyed. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

More kennels.
More kennels.

The kennels in the front are for Small/Medium dogs, these ones are for Medium/Large dogs. If we need to kennel we insist they have lots of room to move around. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Drying time
Drying time

We have a huge drying station here with brand new, more efficient dryers. (We do not use hot air dryers as they very quickly overheat dogs as they can't sweet.) Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Splish splash...
Splish splash...

Out tub has two secure straps, adjustable hight (because dogs come in many sizes), walk in steps and our 6 different shampoos are all designed and ph balanced for dogs. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Overkill?
Overkill?

We tend to overshoot on the safety side of things. This drying table for example is for a commercial workshop. You could set a diesel engine on there with no worries, so we should be ok for our clientele. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Access
Access

Having a retractable wall and stairs makes it so much easier for large and physically impaired dogs to get into the tub. And of course if a dog isn't sure of the stairs, there are two strapping lads who can lift them gently in and out. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

So much room
So much room

It's hard to believe we functioned in our old shop for a decade and a half after having truly enough space to not just function but to flourish. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS

Wash those worries away
Wash those worries away

It's important that all dogs get washed regularly. Even short hair dogs. Urine and other foreign bodies can find their way into your pets fur and cause issues. Your Groomers, 15 Cobequid Rd, Lower Sackville, NS
