Meet & Greet

For your nervous or anxious dogs, the aunties will be happy to provide some yummy cookies, a friendly voice, and even some pets.

Nail Trim & File

We offer walk-in nail trim services. We clip as well as file; if your pet prefers one or the other, we can accommodate that. This service is $15 unless the pet requires more than one groomer due to behavioral issues. In this case, there will be an extra charge, dependent on the level of difficulty.

Gland Expression

We offer external anal gland expression as a walk in service for $15. Nails & Gland Expression together as a walk-in is $25.

Ear Cleaning

We offer ear cleaning as a walk-in service for your dog or cat. Waxy, dirty build-up you can't seem to get rid of? Let us help! Ear cleaning as an a la carte service is $10.

Meet the Family

We aunties are gentle and caring groomers, dedicated to providing high-quality grooms and exceptional customer service.
