Changing coats

Have you noticed the fall shed? Is there a lot of extra dog hair around your house? In the fall, many dogs shed their lighter summer coat in order to reveal a thicker, warmer coat. During a grooming appointment, we provide all dogs with two washes, a blow dry, and thorough brush-out in order to remove excess hair and leave your dog’s coat clean and beautiful.

Checking for fleas and ticks

Regular visits to a groomer ensure that there is always someone checking on your dog’s skin condition, and this includes checking for fleas and ticks. As always, make sure your dog is protected with a flea and tick preventative year-round.

Soothe fall allergies

Dogs can experience allergies the same way we do – itchiness, sneezing, runny eyes and more. Has your dog been chewing and scratching their skin? We have shampoos and conditioners that can help soothe the skin, and a good bath and brush-out will help by removing dead skin and excess hair.

Also included with grooming

Nail trimming and ear cleaning are included with each groom. Having your dog’s nails trimmed before the harsh winter months will help prevent them from becoming dry and brittle. Ear cleanings remove wax and debris that can be caused by fall allergies. During the fall season, Huckleberry’s offers seasonal colognes such as mulled cider and pumpkin pie, and every groom is followed up with a free, festive bandana!
