What are some of the services that you offer?

We offer dog bathing and grooming. With each service, your pet will get two baths done by hand, a nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal glands, if that's what you would like. The main difference between dog bathing and dog grooming is that grooming involves hair cutting.

How does regular grooming contribute to the good health of my dog?

It contributes in so many ways. It gives me a unique way to feel over your dog on a monthly basis to see if I notice any lumps or bumps or anything like that. It's great for your dog's skin and ear health, and it helps prevent matting, which is the number one issue I see when dogs come in for grooming.

What is matting?

Matting is essentially when your dog's fur starts to tumble up together and turn to big clumps on their body. If you go 6, 8, or 10 weeks without brushing your dog, their fur will start tangling up the same way our hair would. Unfortunately, it is painful, bad for their skin, and it can be dangerous to get out. The best way to prevent that from happening is to bring them in for grooming.

How often should my dog be groomed?

It depends on your dog and the kind of coat they have. I usually say maybe 8 to 10 weeks. Somewhere in that range is a good time to wait. You can go early as six weeks if that's what you would like. Really that's something I go over with you in person to talk about what your individual dog needs and what I think would be best for them.

How do I book?

Just give me a call. You can call the regular number of Brook Falls, extension three. Leave me a voicemail. Usually, I answer them when I'm done with my workday, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

If you still have other questions and you'd like to reach out to us, you can call us directly at (262) 781-5277, you can email us, or you can reach out on social media. But please do reach out, and we'll get back to you as fast as we can.

Dog Grooming - FAQs

Is it better to groom your dog at home or have it done by a professional groomer?

Ten times out of 10, I'm going to say a professional. The quality and safety you'll get can only be achieved when you go to a professional groomer. When you bring them in, it's also a great opportunity for someone to look your dog over and make sure they're as healthy as they can be. You're going to get the best possible results.

Does my dog need to be vaccinated to get groomed?

Yes, they do. The best course of action is to give Brooks-falls a call and see the exact list of requirements to come for grooming, but vaccinations are required.

If my dog has behavior issues, will they be welcome to get groomed?

Absolutely. Most dogs' behavior issues stem from fear. My biggest concern is to make sure they are as fear-free as they can be. I take many steps to try and eliminate fear to the best of my ability. I'll go as far as talking to the veterinarians here to see what they recommend and potentially make use of their skills as well. There's a lot we can do to make sure your dog feels comfortable.

What does grooming cost?

Grooming costs depend on the animal's size, coat type, and texture. Each dog is unique, and we can't really give a price until we know all the information. Give us a call, and we'll figure pricing out after we have gotten more details.
