GROOMING SHOULD BE AN ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE FOR YOUR DOG

That’s right — enjoyable


You know how you feel great after a fresh haircut? Your dog does, too. Grooming CAN be like a spa day for them. It should be a good experience.

Here are a few of the ways we keep your pup comfortable and happy:

  • We’re constantly paying attention to each dog’s behavior and looking for ways to make the experience better. We give them breaks when needed. We’re tuned into how they’re feeling.
  • We don’t bring in a ton of dogs at once and stick them in kennels. You’ll have a scheduled drop off time, and we’ll call you as soon as your pup is ready. Your dog isn’t sitting in a crate with a dozen other dogs barking loudly around them all day.
  • Baths are warm and relaxing for pups.
  • Our grooming tables have anti-fatigue mats for comfort.
  • We use premium, salon-quality shampoos — the best of the best. (We also have specialty shampoos available!) 
  • Even the dryer feels like a massage. Human hair dryers dry with heat. A force dryer pushes the water away. This helps with shedding (it blows out the undercoat) and feels good on your pup’s skin.
  • They get treats and water while they’re with us. 
  • You’re welcome to bring some of your dog’s comforts from home! Is your pup allergic to peanut butter, or is there another treat they love? Great! Bring their treats. Does your dog need a toy in the bath? No problem. Bring a toy.

A MORE CONVENIENT GROOMING EXPERIENCE FOR YOU

Our number one priority is to make sure your dog is comfortable and happy. Our second priority? To make the experience as convenient as possible for you, their parent.

  • Scheduling is easy. Once your pup’s profile is set up in the Skiptown app, you’ll be able to schedule grooming and leave notes for their groomer all within the app.
  • See how your pup did. After their appointment, you’ll see your pup’s grooming report in the app. Your groomer will share notes about how they did, and before and after photos!
  • Remember what you and your pup liked, and didn’t like. Since we keep all notes in the app, we’ll be able to reference notes from past grooms each time your pup visits. You’ll be able to say things like, “let’s go shorter than last time” or, “I can’t remember if he disliked the nail trim or not.” And we’ll have the answer at our fingertips.
  • Drop-off and pick-up are easy peasy. You’ll simply drop your pup off at the scheduled grooming appointment time, then we’ll give you a call when they’re ready to come home! No guesswork or wondering when they’re done. 
  • Schedule a boarding exit bath. Bringing your dog for boarding? Schedule an exit bath for them on the last day they’re with us, and pick up a fresh and happy pup!

Grooming FAQs

Welcome to Skiptown! The first step to getting your dog set up to use our grooming services is downloading the Skiptown app. After you download the app, you should create an account and complete your dog’s profile. The app will prompt you through the registration process. Be sure to have your vet records handy! After your pup’s profile is completed, you’ll be able to schedule a grooming appointment for your dog.

We have a cancellation policy because our groomers make commission on every appointment. Cancellation is free before 8am the day before your appointment. For cancellations after 8am the day before your appointment, you will be charged 50% of the service price. For same-day cancellations, you will be charged the full service price. Arrival more than 20 minutes after your appointment drop-off time will be considered a same-day cancellation.

Drop-off and pick-up are easy peasy:

  • Pick them up within an hour of their scheduled end time! (You’ll get your scheduled pick-up time when you book the appointment!)
  • You can also schedule grooming to take place during your pup’s boarding or daycare visit, and drop them off and pick them up at normal times!

If you need to reschedule or adjust your grooming appointment, reach out to hello@skiptown.io or text (704) 343-6658 and our support team will be happy to help.

Previous grooming appointments can be seen in the Skiptown app. Once the app is open, click the Calendar tab, and select the date of your previous appointment. After opening your appointment, you will see the report from your previous groomer, photos of your pup, and any recommendations they provided.

We strive to make all pups comfortable throughout the grooming process by moving at their pace and, if approved, incentivizing them with peanut butter treats. We take breaks if needed and remain tuned into how the dog is feeling at all times. If at any time we feel that a groom cannot be safely completed, we will stop immediately and call.

Our support team is working hard to update vaccines when they come in, but occasionally there is a delay in our processing. To check on your dog’s vaccine uploads, text (704) 343-6658 and our support team will be happy to help.

Yes! Intact dogs are welcome to use our grooming services. We only require that they are at least 16 weeks old and up to date on vaccinations.

Skiptown’s recommended grooming depends on your dog’s breed and coat. As a general guideline, short-haired dogs usually only need a Bath & Blow Out. Dogs that require a small amount of trimming can select Touch Up. Any dog that requires a full haircut or trimming on their entire body should select Cut & Style. If your dog requires a service that wasn’t selected, our groomers will adjust as necessary.

Shed control is a solution offered to any dog with excessive shedding. This service involves using high-speed drying before and after your dog’s bath with specialty shampoo, conditioner, and brushes designed to remove excess fur.

Pricing is based on the amount of time required, groom type, services chosen, and your dog’s size, coat type, and coat condition. We’ll provide a price estimate when you book!

Keep in mind, that different dogs require different types of services to meet the needs of their coat and lifestyle. Our dog grooming team will make sure you’re set up with a customized offering specifically designed to fit your pup’s needs!

The number one thing you can do is brush your dog every day! You brush your hair every day, and you should brush your dog’s hair every day too. More frequent baths will also help. If you use good products, dogs can get bathed every week, and it’s very beneficial for their skin, coat health, and shedding. For breeds that shed a lot, weekly baths will reduce the amount of shedding at home. For dogs with heavy coats, more frequent baths help remove undercoats which helps with shedding and also helps them regulate their body temperature.

Yes! We can do any breed-specific cut. One thing to keep in mind is that for mixes, like Goldendoodles, a standard breed-specific cut doesn’t exist, because doodles are not actually a “standard breed.” Each doodle is different. Some have tighter coils, some are longer-haired, and so on. We’re happy to find a style that works for your pup’s coat and your lifestyle!

We only shave dogs if it’s absolutely necessary. If they’re too matted and we can’t cut or brush the mats out, we may have to shave. In order to prevent this, we recommend getting into the habit of regularly brushing your dog at home and bringing them in for grooming more regularly!

Yes — and this is for your pup’s safety. The loops do not hurt them! They help our groomers make sure dogs don’t jump off the table in the middle of their groom.

Grooming is an essential part of maintaining your dog’s overall health and appearance.
