Professional Grooming Salon

"The Spa at Wellington" offers both professional grooming and a self-bathing area in our Grooming Salon. The Grooming Salon has a separate entrance on the east side of the building.

Professional grooming offers many benefits including keeping your pet's coat, skin and ears in good condition, increased comfort and social acceptability, and eliminating pet odor. Frequent and regular grooming makes your pet feel better too and has definite health benefits in less skin and allergy problems.


Our grooming service includes a luxurious bath with pet formulated shampoo, a blow dry with a complete brush out, toe nail trim, ear cleaning, and anal gland expressions (if needed).

We offer full service grooming including everything stated above plus a custom design cut to your specifications or preference.

Other spa services such as specialized shampoos, conditioners, and paw treatments are available. A Day at the Spa might be just what your precious pooch needs!

Grooming Policies:

Grooming services are available by appointment. Please call ahead to schedule an appointment.

Grooming charges are based on the size of your dog, its breed, current coat condition and degree of matting, and specialized grooming needs unique to your pet. Grooming can be scheduled as part of your boarding package as well.

Drop Off and Pick Up Times

Grooming pets should be dropped off on the day of their appointment depending on their scheduled grooming time. The groomer will meet with you to discuss any special needs you may have. You should plan to pick up your pet after 3:00 pm but before closing time at the end of the day.

Medical and Vaccination requirements

For your pet's safety and the safety of our other guests, we require that all grooming pets be current on vaccinations and free from internal and external parasites at the time of grooming.

Payment Policy

Our Sedation Policy

We do not sedate our grooming patients unless absolutely necessary to prevent injury to the pet from excessive movement or to calm aggressive pets. We will not sedate without your permission. Sedated patients are monitored by the doctor or a registered veterinary technician.



In addition to professional grooming, we now offer a self-serve bathing area where you can bathe your own dog using our comfortable walk-up bath tub. We provide the water, shampoo formulated for dogs, towels, clean brushes and you do the rest. Optional drying cage is available for faster drying.

An appointment is recommended to assure availability. Please call ahead to schedule.

In order to protect your dog and our guests, dogs using this service should be current on vaccinations and parasite free.
