At Little Wiggles Dog Grooming we offer full service grooming for your smaller breed dogs. (Up to 20lbs) All full service grooms include deep tissue massage, nail trimming, pee breaks when necessary, healthy treats, and one groomer from start to finish. We do not use cage dryers; all dogs are hand dried; no dog is left unnattendedWe offer a calm, stress free environment that is soothing to your pet.  Timely drop off and pick-up is imperitive to this system of one groomer to one dog to be effective. 

Our Goal is to work with your to improve the over-all health of your dog.  A healthy dog is a dog that is easy for everyone to love and enjoy.  This is achieved through through proven professional best practice standards of grooming practice.  We cater to difficult and special needs animals, however we are no longer taking aggresssive pets that bite due to severe injuries to the groomers hands and arms and face. Seniors are never a problem,pets with history of spinal injuries or epilepsy are handled with care.  please see our Senior Pet Page for more information.

Banadanas and Bows are always FREE!

1 - all dogs groomed have post groom photos kept on file so if you ever lose your little one, or just want a photo - we will send you a copy via email for your use at no charge! This is subject to the ability to photograph your pet, some photos do not always turn out due to wiggly pets etc.  We do our best to provide this value added program.  When requesting photos please provide your name and your pets name and date of last appointment so files can be accessed for photos.  Registered owners whose name is on the file may make this request.

2 - Each Little Wiggle gets a comprehensive "Doggy Grooming Report Card"  this includes a  non-veterinary heath report that covers health subjects including: ears, eyes, skin, coat, feet, nails & behavior.

Short and Smooth coats require a full service groom in order to manage all aspects of coat management.   If there is excessive undercoat to remove, or matts present there will be additional charges based on time spent to remove them in the most humane way.

One of the Poodle Progressions - This is a specialty groom that requires monthly professional grooming appointments as well as regular home grooming maintenance to prepare the coat in order to acheive this nicely finished look.   Extra charges apply for the artistic and detailed hand scissoring, specialty drying,  and products that are required to acheive this the progression styles.  This little girl's owner was very dedicated to the high level of home grooming required for this type of look.

This little Girl (above) is a  mixed breed with Terrier as the dominant breed.  She is a Full Service Groom because hand scissoring is incorporated into the grooming procedure, but it is accomplished within the time frame of a full service groom so there are no extra charges.

Here is an example of a "little one" in need of a simple clean-up; Full Service Groom - coat in good condition, no matting, excellent behavior

Here she is after her Full Service Groom - all nice and fresh!  What a little doll and a pleasure to work with!  Doesn't she look happy?

Online Dog Grooming Course

With almost 30 years of hairdressing skills behind me and after much research into the field of grooming schools; I decided on JKL Training Academy.  I was able to train at home, on my own time, in a fully professional manner. 

The JKL Pet Grooming program  offered full support for the one year it took to complete, and was exceptional in covering all aspects of pet grooming, running my own business, and verified the quality of  my skills though various means such as rigorous testing, peer mentors, photo and video submission and ongoing support/feedback on my skills and quality of work. 

I graduated with "Highest Honors".

They offer continuous direct and personal support through the entire duration of the training period and beyond.  I am presently a peer mentor to current students of the JKL training program.  I highly recommend this school and program if you are planning on becoming a reputable, highly trained pet groomer in any Country or Province.  Joy  Waters(owner/operator) has her hand on the pulse of the grooming industry, and has for over 30 years. 

JKL Training Academy is  an International Accredited training organization.  Click on the link above for more information about training.
