Making sure your dog is as comfortable as possible
While your dog is in our care we will do everything possible to make sure they are comfortable. This includes keeping water available, a treat (if allowed) and a walk when they need to go! We strive to ensure each dog has a good experience and understand that occasional creativity is required in order to keep them as happy as possible!
Our professional grooming team is trained to detect signs of trouble and understand coat types and skin conditions in dogs. We will assess your dog and use the appropriate products each time. All products are salon quality and most are natural with limited ingredients. Shampoo and Conditioner types include hypoallergenic, colloidal oatmeal, tea-tree oil, medicated and de-shedding among others.
While your dog is in our care you can expect their appointment to take a minimum of two hours to complete. Some dogs naturally take longer than others due to the length, type, and condition of their coat. While here, we will take them out for potty walks, drink breaks, and offer a quiet rest period as often a needed. It is our goal to provide a positive experience for each grooming session.
Did you know that we offer Daycare, along with a variety of Enrichment Activities and Snacktivities to stimulate your dog’s senses while he/she is here for their grooming appointment? Check out our Enrichment Activities and Snacktivities pages for our full menu of options.
Tender Loving care
We provide loving and personalized care for each dog. If your dog is stressed by grooming, we may choose to give him a break during the grooming process. We want your dog to associate coming to My Dog with a positive experience, because grooming is a good thing! Proper hygiene will keep your dog healthy and she will feel better. Although some dogs have a history of poor grooming experiences, we believe with consistent care in a safe and quiet environment, even the most stubborn and untrusting dogs can grow to appreciate the pampering.

Do you get embarrassed when guests leave your home covered in dog hair? Are you running the sweeper daily and appears as though you haven’t swept in a month? At My Dog’s Care Center we understand the frustration!
This is one reason we offer a comprehensive De-shedding Treatment for your dog. Believe it or not ALL dogs shed.
Some shed heavily all year, others primarily during spring and fall. There is no such breed that does not shed, regardless of the claim. All canines shed the fur that dies to make room for new growth. Humans do the same thing, except it doesn’t get trapped the way a dog’s fur will. Although you may not see it, this shedding (dead) fur is trapped by the top coat. This is why you can brush your dog repeatedly and it never seems to stop. The dead fur and dander near the dog’s skin causes odor, hygiene and skin problems and it can exacerbate an allergy issue. It’s also annoying when it falls all over your home, clothes and furniture!
Enhanced Tooth Cleaning
While your dog is here for grooming, you may want to consider having our
Professional Grooming Team treat them with PlaqClnz.
PlaqClnz is a non-invasive, easy and effective treatment to help with plaque and tartar buildup for your dog. The oral care products are alcohol-free and designed to help reduce plaque and tartar. They contain natural ingredients including Zinc complex, which can help stop odor formation and interfere with tartar growth.
Without proper care, your dog can suffer from dental problems such as bad breath, plaque and tartar buildup, and gum disease. These problems can lead to more serious problems if not addressed.
The most noticeable sign of plaque buildup is bad breath. If plaque buildup is left untreated, it hardens into tartar which is a deposit along the gumline. Over time, this can cause “pockets” and may lead to gum disease, pain and loss of teeth.
We recommend seeing your vet to determine the dental health of your dog. PlaqClnz treatment is NOT the same as having your dog’s teeth cleaned by your veterinarian. Vet teeth cleaning requires anesthesia and is very costly. PlaqClnz is designed to be effective over time to help maintain your dog’s dental health.
PlaqClnz performed at My Dog’s Care Center includes the following:
Pre-treat dog’s mouth with PlaqClnz Spray at check-in. The product will remain on their teeth and start to break down the bacterial source of the plaque, for a minimum of 30 minutes.
While in the grooming tub, we’ll gently flush the mouth with the PlaqClnz Oral Irrigator to remove plaque and debris.
During grooming we will place PlqClnz Gel in your dog’s mouth. This will continue to cleanse your dog’s mouth and help eliminate bad breath and plaque buildup.
Adding a toothbrushing service will enhance the experience by removing additional buildup that was not irrigated during the bathing process.
When treated on a regular basis, your dog will have fresher breath and less plaque and tartar buildup. This translates into better oral hygiene that can prevent unnecessary vet visits. Let our Grooming Team know if you would like to try PlaqClnz on their next grooming appointment. It remains one of our most popular services.
