Time at the Salon

We bathe and brush our beautiful Collie mix, but about mid-summer, his coat becomes unmanageable. He is shedding his winter fur, and it becomes matted and really kind of nasty. He picks up sticks and leaves in his fur, some of which get caught next to his skin and poke him. It’s at this point we admit that we can’t handle it ourselves – it’s time for a professional grooming.

Groomers not only wash and brush your dog’s coat, but a groomer can also get rid of up to 90% of the fur your pooch is shedding. They also trim the nails, and do a variety of other things that improve the comfort and health of your dog. In our situation, we find that once that undercoat is thinned out, we can maintain our pup’s gorgeous fur as his new winter coat grows in. 

Dogma Pet Supply and Dog Wash™ has a self-wash facility for those who want to bathe their dog themselves, but simply don’t want the mess at home. Dogma™ also offers full-service professional grooming. Before the first snow flies, maybe you should make time for your fur-kid at the groomers, and help him get ready for that new winter coat!

Call Me Beautiful

When it’s time for our sweet Collie-mix, Simon, to go outside to ‘use the facilities’, if there happens to be a single drop of precipitation in the air, this is what happens: he runs to the door in excited anticipation; he stops dead in his tracks as he smells the rain or snow; he slowly backs away from the door, sits, drops his ears, and begins to blink rapidly. His tail wags a little bit, and the message is clear. In his silent way, he is screaming the question – “You want me to get WET?!?!?”

Now imagine bath time. I don’t think I could physically wrestle him into the tub and have us both come away unscathed. Thanks to Dogma Pet Supply & Dog Wash, I don’t even have to make the attempt. They have some lovely people, including Sara and Angel, who are professionals of the highest standard. They will not only get my pup clean in the hard to reach places, and coax his thick fur into glossy beauty, but they will do it in a way that makes him feel adored and pampered. It’s a spa day for Simon, instead of mutual torture for the two of us if I tried groom him myself. I let the fabulous groomers at Dogma do all the work, and then happily receive the compliments I get at the dog park about my beautiful animal. If you like the idea of a grooming experience that is virtually pain-free for all concerned, then call for an appointment at Dogma, and take advantage of their spectacular full-grooming service.
