How does mobile grooming work? Do you use warm water? Mobile grooming is just like shop grooming, except the shop comes to you. Avalon Mobile Grooming has all the amenities you'd expect to find in a shop: climate control, bathtub with hot and cold running water, dryers, clipper-vac grooming system, etc.
Can I take a tour of your van? Yes, we give all our clients a tour. We are proud of our spotless "spa!" All grooming tools and surface areas are cleaned and sterilized after each use. We use disinfectants recommended by veterinarians that kill both bacteria and viruses.
How long does the grooming take? Typically grooming takes about an hour to an hour and a half, but it can vary depending on the coat, breed, and the temperament of your pet.
Is Avalon Mobile Pet Grooming more expensive? When all the amenities are considered: gentle one-on-one professional grooming, time saved, comfortable stress-free environment, premium products, etc. Avalon Mobile Grooming is a much better value. Rates vary depending on the size and condition of the animal. Our rates are shown here.
When are you available? Appointments are scheduled Monday through Saturday between the hours of 9:00am and 3:00pm. During the busy holiday season I work later to accommodate our clients.
What area do you service? I have clients in Milton, Pace, Gulf Breeze, Navarre (up to Hwy 87), and Pensacola. If you live outside this general area, give me a call and we will discuss the possibilities.
Do you accept after hour appointments? Yes, for a small additional charge.
What is included in the full grooming? I bathe and condition your pet using the FURminator Shedless Solution with all baths. It can reduce shedding 65-85%. After blow drying your pet, I follow your instructions on the style of trim desired. Oral treatment, nail trimming/filing, cleaning ears, and expressing scent glands are also included in a full grooming. We also offer min-grooms and bath-only services. More info here.
Do you accept credit cards? Yes, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover here.
Do all dogs need grooming? All dogs need an occasional bath and it is important to keep your dog combed and brushed especially if your pet has long hair. Matted hair can cause skin problems and if neglected for too long, it can eventually necessitate a lengthy grooming session. Regular grooming, will make your pet healthier and more attractive.
What is your background/experience? I worked as Veterinary Technician, for 16 years. After seeing the need for a more personal, caring, mobile pet grooming service, I decided to create my own. More info here.
Do you groom cats? Yes, we often do the popular "Lion cut" for summer.
I'd like my dog groomed on a regular schedule can you set that up? Yes we'd be happy to; we can leave you an appointment card and even give you a reminder call.
How often should my dog be groomed? About 65% of our clients are groomed every other week, about 15% weekly and the remainder monthly.
Doesn't frequent bathing dry out the coat? No, we've never seen dry skin or coat because of frequent bathing. Most Veterinarians recommend that pet be bathed more often when they get dry or itchy skin.
