All Breed Grooming

Timber Ridge Kennels’ Grooming Facility offers “All Breed” and “Breed Specific” grooming and styling. If you prefer your pet to be styled completely different than it’s “Breed Type”, our grooming manager, Wendy (pictured at right) is more than happy to oblige. Please provide her with a full description of “your” style or photo.We employ the HydroSurge® bathing system (similar to a water turbo massage). Unlike “human hair” dog hair must first be free of mats, washed and then dried prior to cutting and styling. Hair that is matted to the skin is extremely painful to your pet. Dogs will scratch or chew at mat sites to relieve their discomfort. This reaction only compounds the problem. Mats cannot be removed with water (they will only become tighter). Matted hair can also lead to lack of circulation, serious skin problems or fungus infections.

Excessive mat charges… or the look of “strip down—fur peels” can be avoided with at-home brushing between normal grooming appointments. Wendy will gladly instruct you on the correct way to avoid mats.

If you are unable to keep up with your dog’s matting problem, we offer maintenance brush-outs at a nominal fee.

Wendy (pictured at left) wears many hats at Timber Ridge Kennels! She will greet you at the front reception desk as Kennel Manager or from the Grooming Shop where she certainly has an expert touch with our “larger friends”!
