Most larger breed dogs shed year round, some much more than others. Then there is the twice annual “blow out” that for some dogs is extreme. Our low-shed treatment uses a variety of tools and products, depending on what works best on each dog coat—the Furminator tool simply doesn’t work on all types of coats. With every dog, there is only so long that we can brush before the skin become irritated and we have to stop. Again, for most dogs, most of the time, a once-a-month bath and low-shed/Furminator is sufficient. However, for some dogs, and during sometimes of the year, this isn’t enough to see a significant difference. In these cases, we offer (and recommend) one follow-up visit for an additional “brush only”*** appointment to occur within 7-10 days from the original appointment for the cost of the furminator add-on. In some cases, it may take multiple rounds of this process to get through the heaviest shedding months. When the groomer/bather is done with your dog, they will discuss their recommendations for the best course of action. ***These “brush only” appointments are only offered in combination with the low-shed treatment and only one per bath can be used. By checking the box below, I understand that that my dog may still have some shedding after their low-shed treatment and that I may schedule an appointment within 10 days for a “brush only” session.
