The Paw Spa offers puppy pampering at its finest. Our groomers work tirelessly to make sure that your dog’s grooming experience is the best in the city. With three experienced and refined groomers on staff, Dogfather ensures that your pet gets the one-on-one attention they deserve. Our talented groomers can do any hairstyle you want, whether its breed specific, or not.  Appointments are made one dog at a time to ensure your furry family member only stays for the few hours it takes to finish their spa treatment.

We offer grooming every day of the week. Give us a call at (416) 960-1088 to find out more information, and to schedule your dog’s appointment.

For first time clients, we require a credit card number or 50% deposit in order to book your appointment. Why you ask? Groomers wages are commission based. If you do not show up for your appointment, or cancel last minute, not only do we loose out on fitting in another customer, but the groomer looses income.  We take credit cards on first customer appointments due to a large number of no shows or last minute cancellations we have experienced with new customers. Rest assured we will not charge your card unless you do not follow our cancellation policy guidelines. Please click here to read about our cancellation policy.

Upon your first visit, we also ask that you sign a waiver. This waver is to insure that you understand all the risks involved with getting your dog groomed.  Your dog will be taken in by the groomer only after the waiver has been signed.

Please Note: We DO NOT book, accept cancellations or make changes to appointments over email. Changing or canceling an appointment is time sensitive, and emails are not checked as often as phone calls. For booking, there is too much information required to properly book your appointment over email.

Note: Please contact the shop for a quote. Prices vary based on individual dog breed and/or size.

Additional Services

(Only available with a Bath or Grooming Service)

 

Not Available

De-skunk

We do not offer De-Skunk baths at Dogfather because there is nothing that will completely get rid of the smell of a skunk with the exception of shaving the hair off the dog. Dogs that have been freshly skunked cannot book a grooming appointment until the owner has attempted the Baking Soda Hydrogen Peroxide bath at home first. Click here for the best method of skunk removal at home. Our Skunk Shampoo will reduce the skunk smell but will not completely take it away. An additional $25 is charged for this service on top of the normal grooming or bath/brush service.

 

Flea Bath

We do not groom dogs with fleas at Dogfather. Dogs that are dropped off for grooming appointments who have fleas will not be accepted. If the groomer discovers fleas during the bath, owners will be notified immediately and  must pick up their dog asap.  An additional fee of $35 is charged to disinfect our grooming space.
