MOBILE DOG GROOMING SERVICES AT YOUR DOOR!
Let us bring our professional dog grooming services right to your front door! Serving all of Monmouth County New Jersey, our state-of-the-art custom mobile grooming vans provide the ultimate, luxury service in dog grooming. Our vans are self contained and equipped with everything our professional and friendly dog groomers need to make your pup look and feel fabulous. This means no hooking up to your home for electric or warm water or best yet, no loud generators running in your driveway for us to obtain power. Most importantly, our mobile dog grooming services will give you the utmost convenience and your pampered pooch the personalized, first class services it deserves to be less stressed while being groomed.
Should your dog be over our size restriction, please consider our in-salon services at our Little Silver or Freehold location.
Services & Pricing
Our mobile dog grooming vans are equipped to do any of our popular spaw packages that we do in our salon but with an additional charge. Therefore, if you are a new customer and seeking an "approximate" cost based on your pet's breed/size, just contact us or fill out our Online Appointment Request Form and include a recent photo of the pet(s) needing our mobile grooming services. However, any quotes are estimates only until your designated mobile groomer actually sees the coat condition of your dog and see's exactly how much time it is going to actually take. In such cases, pricing can than be higher than what was quoted due to the actual amount of work that may be entailed on our first initial visit.
At this time, we only perform "spaw packages" on our mobile grooming van as indicated on our service menu. A la carte services and cat grooming are excluded at this time.
Benefits to Mobile Dog Grooming
At the Dog Spaw, we know how life can be hectic for many and getting your dog to the groomer shouldn't be one of them. No more driving across town fighting traffic or putting a dirty dog in your new car to get your dog to it's grooming appointment. Let us come to you whether at your home or office! With our mobile grooming service, you now have the time added back to your schedule to spend however you choose while knowing that your best four legged friend is being pampered with TLC right in front of your location. Our grooming vans are equipped with everything your groomer needs including fresh warm water for a relaxing bath and it's own inverter electrical system so we don't have to use your electric. We also offer a complimentary dog food delivery service (see below) to mobile clients on the day of their grooming service should they be running low on dog food. Just let us know prior to your appointment what you need. Mobile grooming is also available seven days a week to accommodate the most busiest of schedules.
Mobile dog grooming provides the most non-stressful environment for dogs that tend to have anxiety/nervousness and/or another medical condition prohibiting them to go outside their "comfort zones". With having a mobile dog groomer come to your home, it helps alleviate much of the stress the pet may feel, giving the experience of grooming a much more pleasant, calming and quiet one. Like our salon, our mobile units are continuously cleaned for the health of all pets that enter our unit. Additionally, we do not utilize any pet cages or cage dryers and all pets are handled with the utmost care and attention by our dedicated and professional staff. You and your pet will also find that the grooming process is completed much faster since the groomer is only working on your dog with no interruptions.
Mobile Grooming Policies
Appointment Times & Arrival
We strive to arrive on time to your home but please note that unforeseen circumstances can unfortunately arise that are out of our control. Things such as weather/road conditions, car accident, traffic and/or detours and in some instances, an uncooperative or difficult pup before your appointment can make us arrive late. Therefore, we offer at least a one hour time window for our arrivals for that reason. Should the groomer be running later than expected, she will call/text you directly to inform you of her ETA.
Because our mobile grooming service has become very popular amongst our already established clientele, we highly suggest making multiple appointments in advance for your dog to avoid scheduling conflicts.
For your convenience, we accept cash or any major credit card to finalize your bill. Please note that groomers do not carry cash on them for change though.
Cancellation / Reschedule Policy
We understand that schedules change and grooming appointments need to be rearranged. However, when an appointment is requested to be rescheduled or cancelled less than 48 hours prior, it is extremely difficult to fill in the appointment because we service certain locations/routes on specific days since we service all of Monmouth County. Therefore, should you have to cancel less than 48 hours in advance; a $50 cancellation fee, per pet, will be applied to your account. In addition, when requesting a reschedule, we can not guarantee an immediate appointment since we are usually booked many weeks to months in advance with other standing appointments. If such is the case, please note that pushing your pet’s appointment to our next available can result in your pet’s coat condition becoming worse and requiring more work and time the next appointment which can result in additional charges. Therefore, we urge you to make arrangements for someone to be at home if your unable to be there so we can stay on schedule with your pet’s grooming appointment and avoid the last minute cancellation fee; unless it is because your dog is not feeling well. Any last minute cancellation/reschedule fees will be due at the time a new appointment is made or on your next scheduled visit. Should there be more than two (2) instances of last minute cancellations, we will require a credit card on file to provide services of which you authorize The Dog Spaw to charge any cancellation fees and grooming services provided to this credit card on file.
No Show / Trip Fee Policy
Since we give the courtesy providing reminder calls/texts prior to our 48 hour time window of your actual grooming appointment, it is your responsibility to acknowledge the call/text with a confirmation. Should the groomer come to your home for an appointment which had been confirmed by you and she is unable to reach you or have access to your pet, the groomer will wait for 15 minutes as a courtesy. If she is still unable to reach anybody by phone or text with your ETA or gain access to the dog(s) after 15 minutes, the groomer must leave in order to stay on schedule for the remainder of the day. Therefore, in instances like this, a no show/trip fee of $75 and $50 for each additional pet will be applied for the time and expense of bringing the mobile salon to your premises. Should this fee not be paid by cash/check/credit card within seven business days, it will be sent for collections and services will be further declined.
Latch Key Service
We offer a latch key service for those who cannot be home at the time of the appointment. Arrangements and instructions can be made directly with your groomer with key or code access. Simply leave your pet(s) in a confined area; nearest to the doorway entrance for easy access for the groomer. A credit card number can be kept on file or check/cash can be left as payment is always expected at the time of services rendered.
Free Dog Food Delivery
We offer a complimentary dog food delivery service on any of the brands we sell in our dog health food store (excluding frozen raw foods) to mobile grooming clients. Simply call us as early as one day before your mobile appointment and we will ensure your groomer brings them on board with her. Payment for food orders will then be added to your grooming bill.
