A simple call should allow you to book the most appropriate time for you and your pet; after all we are open seven days a week most of the year. Walk-ins are also welcome, with no promised departure time. Some of our clients stay with us while we work on their fur-babies, other prefer that their beloved ones only stay the minimum amount of time necessary, so some pet parents book Hair Cuts only appointments. They arrive at a specific time their babies see the groomer for the Haircut and home they go...
Because our team members are highly trained in their specific tasks, most of our jobs are performed in three hours or less. In the morning most appointments are done at either 11 AM or 12 PM. In the afternoon our clients are ready in the half-hours due to a lunch break that the team takes at 12 PM. Clients that want to pick their children up at lunch time come in at 9:00 am; others arrive as late as 3:00 pm for a 6:30 pm pick up. Everything is feasible as long as we have a mutual understanding.
Saturday is the most popular day of the week amongst our clients. Consequently we can be booked quite a few days ahead for the Saturday appointments. Weekdays are usually mellower.
When arriving at the store your pet and you will be greeted by Kdee, Cheryl or Karin, and then introduced to Jarbas, Jackie or Annette. Together you will decide what the best style is for your companion.
At The Dog from Ipanema, we believe that just a dedicated and educated owner can decide what is best. We strive to help educate the public about different techniques available for each specific situation and breed. We also believe that most dogs can be groomed to resemble the breed profile described by the accepted Breed Standards any day not only at Show time.
