The PLUSH Method

We do not put time limits on our grooms or rush our services. However long it takes for your dog to be groomed comfortably and safely is what it takes but typically grooming a large dog is a minimum of 4 hours and small dogs will run 3-4 hours. Senior Comfort Grooms will take a bit longer. Additional factors include how long since they’ve last been groomed, behavior, how thick/thin the coat is, coat type, if they had to poop and need to be re-bathed, and more. We are working with dogs who can be unpredictable, have different personalities, and all like different things. Moving through a groom quickly (especially with someone new) is unrealistic and not safe or enjoyable for the dog or groomer. 

We love animals and make sure to build a relationship with each and every dog that comes into Plush, teaching them the process in which grooming happens so that when they come it is not scary, unpredictable, or a rushed process for them in order to avoid any anxiety they may have. Our goal is for your Plush Puppy to enjoy coming in for their appointment. We want dogs to come in and relax and have a stress free grooming experience. We like to give the dogs breaks, make them feel safe and comfortable, and that can take however long it needs to take.
