Specific breed grooming requires a trained eye, proper hand scissoring and safety techniques as well as thorough knowledge of the breed.

We’re not your average pet groomers. In fact both our owner and manager were educated at the Maryland School for Dog Grooming and continue to educate themselves and staff through dog shows, kennel club activities, seminars, etc. Kitty’s Canine Clips believes in breed specific grooming and not generic one size fits all grooming. Since there is no longer an area grooming school that will meet our requirements, KCC started a one year apprenticeship program for our groomers.

  • Each groomer is required to complete a 3 month program in bathing, fluff drying, nail clipping /grinding and over all safe pet handling.
  • The second quarter is learning to remove undercoat through several different processes and do all rough in work for haircuts and scissoring.
  • At this point they make the full commitment by investing in their $800.00 set of basic grooming equipment. The third quarter is spent learning specific breed patterns.
  • The fourth and final quarter is spent learning to hand scissor and “finish” dogs or cats properly. Each groomer is then open to take appointments and for the sake of consistency will have each of their dogs/cats evaluated by a senior groomer after completion.

Safety is Our #1 Concern

Because of our commitment to safety we maintain 8 tons of air conditioning to keep our salon cool and safe. All pets are crated in the grooming room with the groomers (not in a separate room). Crate dryers are never used on high, dryers are never unattended, and are never on longer than 15 minutes at a time. Water temperatures are closely monitored, all equipment is kept properly maintained, stairs are used to get large dogs in and out of elevated tubs and pets are always restrained in tubs. Muzzles are used for the pet’s safety as well as groomer safety when needed. We use only all naturals’ shampoos, veterinary grade therapeutic shampoos, and safe but effective flea products.
