Dog grooming in charlotteBe sure to join Fluffs of Luv at our downtown Pineville cat and dog grooming salon, where your pet can enjoy their very own spa day! A bath, new hair cut, nail trim, and even pet supplies are available. Regardless of breed, size, and age, all dogs and cats are welcome!

Our certified master groom, Carla, answered a few commonly asked questions that you might also be wondering when you call to schedule your appointment:

My dog has never been groomed before. What should I know before I bring him it?

Make sure your pup is up to date on all shots. If your new pet is just a puppy, she’ll get a puppy introduction to familiarize her to the grooming process. We’ll show her around and let her have a sniff at the equipment, such as the trimmer, we’ll be using. We want your pup to like coming to the groomers!

Also, be aware that the first few times grooming may take a little longer so we can spend quality time with your pet.

What’s included in the grooming package?

Bath, nail trim, haircut of your choice (or a standard breed haircut). We can also express anal glands, if needed.

How can I keep my dog looking his best at home? (And should I really be brushing his teeth?)

Brush on a daily basis! Brushing will help your dog get used to being touched all over (helpful for the groomer and the vet office) as well as keep her coat looking its best, as well as preventing any mattes in her fur. Nails can be trimmed at home, puppy pointers has a great step by step guide on how to trim nails. If you feel uncomfortable doing it yourself, you can make an appointment with us for just a nail trim.

Teeth should be brushed on a daily basis as well! Brushing will only be effective if you are consistent. Dogs and cats have plaque buildup just like we do.

Should I get my cat groomed regularly?

While it is true that cats normally clean themselves, regular brushing or combing will help at home.

A grooming appointment may be necessary if the hair is too long around the anal area and needs to be cleaned up. We can also remove mattes in your cat’s fur.

Claws also need trimming, which we can help out with as well.

dog groomerWhat kind of training do you have? How long have you been a groomer? 

I learned one on one with a master groomer and then become a master groomer myself. I’m also certified in creative style and color.

I’ve been grooming for over 25 years! My favorite part of the job is being an artist to the pets. Making pets feel great is such a joy!
