Thank you for your patience and support, especially as we work through some scheduling issues. In an effort to increase efficiency and handle new clients, we may be shuffling some appointments around during the next few months, so greatly appreciate your understanding as we try to accommodate increasingly busy schedules as we all head back to work, school, and post-covid life.
AwbreysArk welcomes Monique Davis! It has taken six months to find this amazing and talented addition to our team, and we are glad to have her. Trained as a vet tech, Monique has the experience and skill that you’ve come to expect from AwbreysArk. I will be completing her training soon, and will introduce her on your next groom with us.
Some of you may have seen this not-so-little guy riding around in the Ark. Occasionally Xander comes to work with us and guards the front seat while we groom in the back. Not to worry, he maintains his distance as he’s still a puppy in training!
Many of you may see a price increase starting with your next appointment. Most prices are going up by about 5%, and some may see an increase more in line with our standard pricing structure. While initial appointments are based on time, breed, and temperament, our standard hourly rate has increased by a few dollars. We understand that mobile service may not be for everyone, so please contact us if you need to discuss or cancel your upcoming appointments.
Doodles/poodles are priced based on size and the amount of time involved in caring for their combination coats and cute teddy bear look. Small doodles (<20lb) will be $120 going forward, medium (<50lb) will be $150, large (>50lb) will be $180, and ALL doodles will need to be on a 4-6 week schedule to minimize excessive matting. Please contact us if you need suggestions for an alternative to mobile grooming for your doodle, as there are some wonderful salons in the area that specialize in these labor intensive breeds.
As always, if you are working with a foster program, are a student, law enforcement or active military, or need financial assistance, please contact Talisha at 919.292.7397 to discuss special pricing.
Our Thera-Clean system creates 20 micron size bubbles, smaller than a dog’s skin pore, that when combined with enzymes lift dirt, allergens, bacteria, and other debris away from your dog’s skin. This helps reduce odor, itching, shedding, and provides a deep natural clean. It can also be used with therapeutic additives for a truly deluxe spa bath, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. Coupled with a massage, your pooch will feel relaxed and completely pampered!
AwbreysArk is currently working with local vets using TheraClean to treat acute issues (such as yeast, mites, and bacterial infections) and chronic issues (such as allergies, atopic dermatitis, and allopecia). We have also adopted an award winning skin care product line by IV San Bernard, and have seen some wonderful results! Watch for more information in coming newsletters as we turn our focus in 2021 towards skin care and hair regrowth.
This is also the year for BLING! As summer rolls around and life begins to return to normal, AwbreysArk will begin to offer creative services such as pet-safe color, stencils, nail polish, and other bling to make your dog the talk of the town! Show your school spirit with a pet-safe dyed logo or stencil on your four legged friend. Be on the lookout for more information.
Also coming soon... ONLINE BOOKING!
Other services we currently offer: hand stripping, massage, and special handling. Our aging friends benefit from slings, hoodies, groom in box (for deaf/blind pups), and special care for all the lumps and bumps that happen as we age. We also specialize in your puppy’s first groom by introducing him/her slowly to clippers, dryers, etc. and to previously traumatized and/or excessively frightened dogs with patience and loving care in a one-on-one grooming experience.
One dog at a time.
THANK YOU again for a wonderful first year and we look forward to continuing to pamper your pooches in 2021!
