We get this question a lot. We say that a groom will take 3-4 hours. We know people are busy running errands and it may take a while to get back to Tempe. We give a total of 6 hours, including the groom time, before we charge daycare.
Let me explain why we charge the $10 daycare fee per dog. When your dogs are finished with their groom, they don't just get shoved in a kennel and forgotten. They are out playing with all our other clients. We also take the time to play with them. We let them outback to take care of business. They get treats and tons of belly rubs. The $10 fee is all that extra attention they get while they are patiently waiting for you, their parent to come get them. I know I would rather have my dogs being loved than just shoved in a kennel. Wouldn't you?
