Every dog grooming appointment includes the following:


                                          • Brush Out                                          • Nails Clipped  


                                          • Haircut If Desired                              • Sanitary Areas Cleaned/Trimmed  


                                          • Bath - Shampoo & Condition            • Paws Cleaned/Shaved Between Pads


                                          • Warm Air Blow Dry                           • Lots of TLC


                                          • Ears Cleaned/Plucked (If needed - usually Poodles & Poodle-Mix Breeds)  


How long does the grooming process take?

Most mobile grooming appointments are completed within 1 – 2 hours depending upon breed, size, and

condition of your dog. Larger, hairier breeds may take up to 2-3 hours

Do you need to hook your van up to my house for water or electricity?

No, the van is fully self-contained. All I need is a place to park!

How often should my dog be groomed?

Depending upon breed, it is recommended that your dog be groomed every 4-6 weeks. Some breeds

may need to be groomed more often. I will recommend how often your dog should be groomed at the

completion of your first grooming appointment.

Can I schedule recurring appointments?

Yes, in fact, I encourage this. This way you can always count on me being at your home or office

at the same time on a specific day of the week. I book appointments in advance for many of my

4-legged clients and it is usually best to at least schedule your next appointment after your

current grooming is complete.

How old does my puppy have to be before I can have him/her groomed?

It is recommended that puppies have no less than their second set of booster shots (usually 12 weeks old) before their first grooming appointment.

Can I stay with my pet while he/she is being groomed?

No and this is not because I am mean!! Generally speaking, most dogs behave better and are less anxious when their parents are not present but please come take a look at the van before or after grooming -  you are more than welcome!!

Is there a weight limit?

I don’t have any breed restrictions, however there is a weight restriction of 90 lbs. I regret that InstaGroom is unable to accommodate extra large breeds, be they long or short haired. Afghans, Great Danes, Newfies, Great Pyrenees, St. Bernards, Russian/Irish Wolfhounds, etc., or corded dogs such as Comondores and Pulis - I simply don't have enough space for these beautiful but bigger-than-the-tub-can-handle breeds.

Price depends on many variables including but not limited to breed, the size of your dog, coat condition & thickness, temperament, and if your dog is elderly or has special needs. When I speak with you I will ask various questions including:


      • Dog’s Breed or Mixed Breed Make-up           • Dog's Age, Weight & Size  \


      • General Description of Temperament            • Coat Condition


      • Length of Time since Last Grooming             • Current Vaccinations


      • Any Special Needs (i.e. if you dog has any medical conditions or if your pet is  

                                               elderly, or physically-challenged)


Then based on the answers to these questions will quote you a price for the grooming.
