Grooming Rehab

Fired from the salon?

There's still hope.

Desensitize

verb. To make nonreactive.

Your groomer doesn't have the time it requires to fully acclimate and desensitize a fearful, aggressive dog to their chaotic salon environment.

Dog groomers are not dog trainers and have appointments to keep.

Desensitization is a process that takes time but is well worth it.

Patience & Persistence

Your dog may associate grooming tools and tables to feelings of anxiety.

Your dog may have learned that biting and thrashing ends the grooming experience.

These are feelings and behaviours that will take patience and persistence to rewire.

Step 1

Apply for an assessment.

Share any details that groomers have shared with you in the past about your dog's salon behaviour.


After filling out the form, expect a phone call to expand on what you shared and to go over any preliminary steps we can take.

Step 2

Bring your dog in.

Leave your pup with me for the hour while I go over basic salon procedures and assess their level of reactivity to strangers and the grooming experience.


Assessment Fee:

$200

Step 3

Create a plan.

From there, I'll devise a plan to desensitize their major triggers and gradually associate peace with the grooming process.

Simulated Salon Enviornment

From the blow-dryer to the nail-grinder, I'll reintroduce all salon tools and sensations with patience, guidance, and plenty of positive reinforcement.

Your dog needs your love and support to conquer their fear for good.
