Grooming & Training

Dogs Love to be Bathed and to Smell Good!

Because bathing and grooming are essential to a healthy pet, Wagging Tail Resort’s talented professionals and our state-of-the-art grooming salon are designed to take pet pampering and grooming to the next level. All services are available by appointment, or can be scheduled with overnight accommodations (subject to stylist availability). No tranquilizers, just tender loving care!

Exit Baths
Why We Recommend Exit Baths
Unlike at home, where dogs have their own items and sleep on the couch, at Wagging Tail Resort, they share exercise and common areas with other pet guests. All areas are picked-up, disinfected, washed down and dried several times daily. However, no matter how clean we maintain our facility, this interaction, especially if weather conditions are humid or rainy, may alter your pet’s natural scent.

Discounted Exit Bath Pricing
Due to these factors, we offer discounted bathing services to all of our overnight, guests and recommend that all pet guests be bathed before they go home. We find that pets love the attention and pampering they receive while being bathed, and love all the extra attention they get at home when they are clean, look great, and smell good. Plus, owners appreciate less pet hair in their homes!

under “Registration Forms

We reserve the right to refuse service for any reason. Proof of current vaccinations are required, including rabies and bordatella for all dogs being bathed or groomed. All dogs must be current on preventatives including flea/tick and heartworm.

A release of liability form must be completed and signed when dog is dropped off. Full payment is due at the time of pick-up. Wagging Tail Resort is not responsible for allergic reactions resulting from the manufacturer-recommended usage of any products during the bathing or grooming process.

Pets whose coats are severely matted or tangled are often times denied regular circulation and skin stimulation. This leads to unhealthy situations including irritated/discolored skin, sores, and foul odors. We will use our best effort to minimize the effects of de-tangling and de-matting, however, be advised that coat removal on a matted pet is a delicate and slow process which may result in certain post-grooming risks including itchy skin, discolored skin, burns, sores, and more.

The cost for de-matting or de-tangling is $50 per hour.
