DIY Grooming? Or Let Us Do It!

From a basic bath to shed control to flea & tick protection, leave it to our professional Pet Stylists

Tried a DIY bath? Next time, leave the fuss to our pet-loving salon associates.

Aerial dogpaddling. Daring attempts to escape the shower or tub. Suds on your clothes, not on your dog. Wet, slippery floors. Then, just when you think it’s all done, a cascade of water as your dog shakes it all off.

Bathing your dog at home isn’t impossible, but it can be challenging. And since most dogs should get a bath at least every 4-6 weeks to keep their skin and coat healthy, it might be easier to get professional help, even if you'd rather do it yourself.

At PetSmart, pups enjoy a relaxing oxygen-infused bath with premium shampoo and conditioner. But that’s just the beginning. After a blow-dry and brush out, our professional salon associates tackle the tricky stuff:

  • nail trimming
  • ear cleaning, hair removal & flushing (if needed)
  • scissoring fur on the feet & shaving the paw pads
  • sanitary trimming

Tried DIY de-shedding at home? Next time, bring your fuzzy friend to us.

The tangles. The knots. The flying fur. The sneezing. And then, pulling the fluff out of the brush and sweeping up.

Dealing with a shedding dog can be a chore, but it doesn’t have to be. Our FURminator® Package uses the FURminator® ultimate hair reduction grooming products and tools to remove undercoat and loose hair on long and short-haired dogs, which helps reduce shedding by 90%!

Our salon shedding treatment with a bath or a groom includes:

  • deShedding shampoo & solution
  • blow-out of loose & excess coat
  • brushing with the FURminator® tool

Our FURminator® PLUS service includes all of the above with a nail grind, teeth brushing and breath freshener.

Tried DIY flea and tick control? Next time, we’ll take care of those pesky pests.

Wait. What’s that spot on my dog’s skin? Is it what I think it is? It IS. GROSS. Fleas and ticks aren’t just disgusting biters and bloodsuckers, they can also be a health hazard, passing on diseases to dogs. And they can infest not only your pets, but also your home and yard. Anyone who’s ever had to deal with that hassle can rest easy knowing our Grooming Salons can help.

If you’ve noticed fleas or ticks on your dog, bring them in for a bath or groom and add our Flea & Tick Package that includes:

  • medicated shampoo
  • anti-itch spray
  • choice of Frontline® Plus or Only Natural Pet preventative solution*

Protection is, of course, the key to stopping fleas and ticks before they start. Need help applying it? Beginning in March, when you buy, we’ll apply! Just bring your PetSmart-purchased flea and tick solution to us and our Grooming Salon associates will put it on your dog for FREE.** See an associate for details.
