I am a regular consumer of your Earthbath Oatmeal and Aloe shampoo, I use it on my 4 dogs and 2 cats and have had great results.

My husband has a guide dog. He uses this product on him every day, the Mango Tango scent. It makes such a difference in his coat.... We went through a short time when we ran out of the product and really became aware of how well your product works.... We have tried other deodorizing sprays, but none comes close to the lasting scent or the improved look of his coat as earthbath.

Dog grooming is one of your dog's basic needs and an important part of dog ownership. Just like people, dogs need physical maintenance to look and feel their best. Fortunately, dogs do not need to bathe as often as people, but you do need to learn how much grooming your dog actually needs and keep it on a schedule. Generally, a dog’s grooming needs depend on the breed and hair type.

The salon's official groomer, Jaclyn, is a graduate of Sheridan College Animal Care Program. She is passionate and up to date with all the latest grooming techniques and will be happy to accommodate busy customers outside of work hours to ensure their pet is clean, comfortable and content.

I will give your dog the care that is fitting of a king or queen. I offer evening appointments and if you can’t get to me, we can arrange pick up and return service to our salon to get your beloved pet groomed. If I can be of help just call the Urban Zoo to make an appointment. Below are a couple of examples of my work.

A visit to The Urban Zoo means much more than simply giving your dog a shampoo, we offer a range of services at our salon. On arrival, your pet is greeted and his general condition is assessed. This means we can discuss the best way to groom, trim and tailor your dogs coat according to breed, features and lifestyle.

We keep Individual file cards to record each dogs details, their likes and dislikes, trimming and style details, owner details and contact phone numbers. Everything is agreed to before your leave, including a pickup time. As it can be damaging to a long haired dog to bath a matted coat, we will first examine your dog all over for tangles, lumps beneath the skin, overgrown nails or skin/ ear problems.

De-matting, depending on how severe, can take from 30 minutes to a couple of hours. A much needed bath will almost certainly result in the hair becoming more entangled. This means it can become stressful and unkind to subject your pet to hours on the grooming table. In these instances we may suggest a shorter trim to make the day at the salon much more pleasurable for your pet and more practical to maintain at home.

All dogs who visit The Urban Zoo are bathed and fluff dried thoroughly by professionally trained staff with our earthbath natural pet shampoo. Then it's off to the finishing table where each dog is skillfully clipped, scissored and styled according to his breed. Alternatively in the case of full coated pets the coat is carefully combed and turned out to their owners preferences. By the time your pet is due for collection, in addition to all coat care, he will have had a complete pedicure (including all dew claws, eyes and ears cleaned, thorough de-matting, skin check and shampoo). We will report anything we feel you or your vet should know at this stage.

Regular dog grooming not only ensures that your dog always looks and smells it's best, but it can aid in the early detection of possible health concerns. Dogs come in many breeds and at The Urban Zoo, your dog will be groomed to the highest standard of their breed.
