As every pet is unique in their own way and there are many variables to the grooming process, I ask that you contact for pricing. Variables that affect pricing include your pet's coat type, condition of the coat, breed of your pet, temperament of your pet, time between professional groomings, and your location. Please remember this is a personalized service at your location
Health and Safety Notes
Pets with Heavy Matting
Heavy matting can be a serious health issue and can present major challenges for the pet stylist. Aesthetics are secondary to the well being of your pet. De-matting is inhumane to your pet and the only safe and humane way to remove them is by clipping/shaving them off. Removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts, abrasions, and injury to warts, moles or skin. Heavy matting can trap bacteria, mold, and fungus on the skin. Removal of matting may cause itchiness, redness, self-inflicted irritation, abrasions, sunburn, and failure of the hair to regrow properly. Every effort will be made to protect your pet's skin while the mats are being removed. As the owner, you are responsible for the condition of your pet's coat and may not hold K9 Design Mobile Pet Salon, LLC, or Gina Sutton responsible in the event of adverse effects of mat removal. A regular grooming schedule of 4-6 week scan help prevent matting
Summer Shave Down
Heavy coated breeds should not be shaven or clipped down. In winter and summer, the coat acts as an insulator from cold and heat and assists in regulating the pet's body temperature and protects them from sunburn. Coats that are clipped off may grown back dull, patchy, change in color, or not at all. If you are looking to reduce the shedding or keep your pet cool, we suggest you try our de-shedding program
Senior Pets & Pets with Health Issues
The grooming procedures sometimes can be stressful, especially for a pet with health issues or a senior pet. The grooming process may expose hidden medical conditions or aggravate existing ones during or after the grooming process. Senior pets and pets with medical conditions have a greater risk of injury. I will groom the pet for cleanliness and comfort in styles that will not add to their stress. K9 Design will not be responsible for accident or injury to an elderly or health compromised pet during grooming
Every effort and precaution is taken to ensure that your pet is handled in a kind, loving and humane way. Clients should realize, however, that we are not working with inanimate objects. Pets will move or jump unexpectedly. Any injury is handled as follows: Immediate first aid; Notification to you; If injury requires emergency care and you are not available, we will take your pet to the closest emergency clinic. We do our best to prevent accidents
Safety comes first for everyone during the grooming session. Please inform us if your pet has ever bitten anyone or has aggressive tendencies. Owners will be held liable for bites or any property damage caused by your pet. I will stop the grooming process if I feel your pet's behavior is compromising their safety or mine. I will charge for the amount of the groom that has been completed or $35, whichever is greater

As we all know, weather conditions in the winter can change rapidly.
If school buses are not running, we will not be operating. When temperatures drop below 32 degrees or over 90 degrees, we are not able to run the unit. The safety of your pet is our first concern. We ask that you clear driveways and sidewalks of any snow or ice. If we arrive and the driveway or sidewalks are not clear, we will give you the option of bringing your pet out to the salon and returning back to the salon to get your pet when finished.
