Hand Scissoring Cuts & More

HAND SCISSORING: The term "hand scissoring" refers to a technique within the grooming industry that is a detailed cut / groom with only the use of shears (no clippers.) This process allows a groomer to create a more sculpted groom (dependent on coat type, texture and condition.)Pricing for full hand scissoring available upon consult, pricing will be determined on cut request, size of dog, texture and condition of coat. This process would require special extended booking as it can be a detailed and lengthy process.
After the first of September grooms with half hand scissoring, more detailed styles may require additional fees / increased grooming cost. This is an industry standard and we appreciate your understanding.
These types of grooms are more for "show." Of course we want your rascals looking their best; however the same looks can be achieved with a combination of clipper use and hand scissoring to create the same or similar look. Most pets we service are not candidates for full hand scissoring as it is a lengthy process and dogs grow anxious when standing / having to hold still for long periods of time. A dog that is requested to get a full body hand scissor groom will be subject to $10.00 - $30.00 & up fee additional to base pricing.This is an industry standard for this detailed and often time consuming work. CLEAN FEET: "Clean Feet" aka "Poodle Feet" is when the feet are closely shaved in between the toes, giving the illusion of socks in some cases. This is a delicate process as we have to navigate in between the toes and paw pads, which has delicate skin. This process can be time consuming as most dogs find it an uncomfortable process as much as we navigate with care and ensure their comfort.This process will not be granted for dogs that have a hard time having their feet touched, as this can compromise safety.
After the first of September services that request clean feet may be subject to additional fees as this is a detailed process. Clean feet will require consult. Again this change is an industry standard and we appreciate your understanding. Poodles will be the exception as this is a "breed standrad." This will be included in the groom at no additional charge. However if your poodle doesn't tolerate the process the fee may be added if the process becomes time consuming and / or requires assistance from other team memembers.
Clean Feet Pricing: Small / Extra Small Dogs: $8.00 Medium / Large Dogs: $12.00 Extra Large Dogs: $16.00
HAND STRIPPING: Hand stripping is more common within show grooming. This process requires a special stripping knife and the hairs are "plucked" for lack of better words, with the use of this tool. This process could take hours, multiple visits, and does require at home maintenance. This technique is the root of grooming for some breeds like the Schnauzer.This is not a service we offer as we see this as a specialty. CORDING: Cording refers to a process that can make a dogs coat look as if he/she has dread locks. This is a humane process when done properly. This process takes years; this requires a dedicated owner willing to continue the cording process at home daily.This is not a service we offer nor maintain as we see this as a specialty.
