This is based on many of the same reasons for which the price of grooming is determined including: breed, type of coat, size, and number of people required to groom. The disposition of the dog also plays a role in this. Some dogs are more tolerant of grooming than others. The ones who are less tolerant require more time to ensure safety. Safety is always first at Muddy Paws in the Guild and in order to respect the animal’s safety, more time may be necessary for the completion of grooming.

Most dogs behave better when their owners are not present. They tend to “show off”(misbehave) for their owner, which often results in their lack of co-operation with the groomer.

Many dogs are puppies from birth until 1 year of age, however, some breeds can grow for up to 24 months. An adult dog is generally classed from age 1 to 7, but this not a firm answer and can be determined by the animal’s health and activity level.
