Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to bring for my grooming appointment?
In order to get your dog groomed at Paws in Paradise, we need you to fill out and sign a grooming enrollment form and authorization form. We also require that you bring a copy of your pet's up to date vaccination records.
Can I stay with my pet while they are getting groomed?
We do not usually allow owners to stay with their pet. In our experience we feel that having the parent in the room can distract the pet and cause them to move around more during the grooming as opposed to staying still. If you would like to stay with your pet as they are getting groomed, please let us know and we will discuss with you your options for setting up the appointment.
How long does the grooming take?
Grooming a pet is a process and the time it takes to groom any pet varies depending on a couple of factors such as, size, coat type, and temperament. Temperament is usually the largest factor because if the dog moves around too much, the groomer must go much slower. Upon request we will try our best to give you a timeframe for the grooming, and we will also call you to update if it is going to take longer then we had originally planned
What if I cannot make it to my appointment?
We understand that sometimes you will not be able to make it to your appointment. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can open the slot for someone who may be looking to get their pet groomed.

Do you take Walk-ins for grooming?
