Please read our policies in full and digitally sign to indicate your agreement to them below.
Our philosophy is to offer a stress-free grooming experience for your pet. We pay special attention to older pets and pets with health issues. Your pet's safety and comfort are our first priority.
#1 - We will not perform any grooming procedure that causes pain or a level of stress that we think is excessive. This includes nail trimming in some situations.
#2 - Senior pets will be groomed for cleanliness and comfort.
#3 - You, the pet owner, will advise us of any medical, physical, emotional issues, allergies, sensitivities or pre-existing conditions.
- This may include prior surgeries, seizures, hip or joint issues, arthritis, warts, moles, ear infections or skin problems.
#4 - You, the pet owner, will advise us of any behavioral problems.
- TransFURmations reserves the right to muzzle your dog if deemed necessary.
#5 - If we arrive at your home and your pet is unable to be groomed a $50 minimum groom fee will apply.
#6 - The pet owner will be held liable for any bites that require medical treatment and for any property damage caused by their pet.
#7 - All bites will be reported to the local authorities as required by law.
#8 - TransFURmations reserves the right to refuse service.
#9 - We will arrive as close to the scheduled appointment time as possible. However, situations may occur that will disrupt the daily schedule of the groomer. This includes traffic, inclement weather, mechanical difficulties, additional time spent with an older/younger/ill/difficult dog prior to you. Any pet's safety will never be compromised by rushing to meet a schedule. You will be called and advised of an arrival time when schedules change beyond our control.
#10 - Pricing varies for each pet and is determined by breed, size and condition of your pet.
#11 - Additional charges apply for de-matting, de-shedding, hydroclipping, excessive coat and flea treatments, due to the added times these treatments take. Additional fees may apply due to the pet's temperament and behavior during the groom.
#12 - If you would like your pet brushed out, the de-matting fee is $1.00 per minute.
#13 - If your pet cannot be humanely de-matted, we may ask permission to clip the hair shorter and "start over" his or her coat. We will always ask for your permission. Please keep in mind that a matted coat can cause numerous health conditions including itching, irritation and skin infections. Removing a heavily matted coat includes risks of nicks, cuts or abrasions due to warts, moles and skin folds trapped and hidden in the mats. Heavy matting can also trap moisture near the pet's skin, allowing fungus or bacteria to grow, causing skin irritations that exist prior to the grooming process. TransFURmations is not responsible for any pre-existing conditions due to a matted coat.
#14 - If you would like to reschedule your appointment to allow you time to brush or comb-out the excess matting yourself, a $50 minimum groom fee will apply.
#15 - TransFURmations will not groom any pet that is not up-to-date on their rabies vaccination.
#16 - We require 48-hours notice to change or cancel an appointment.
#17 - We will contact you by phone, voicemail, text or email to remind you of your appointment. Failure to provide a minimum of 48-hours advance notice of a cancellation will result in a charge of $50 that must be paid prior to your next appointment. Giving us advance notice allows us to fill your grooming slot and rearrange our schedule.
#18 - If we arrive at your home and no one is there to release your pet, a $50 cancellation fee will be applied.
#19 - We accept cash, checks and all forms of credit. Payment is due at completion of groom.
#20 - A $35 charge will be charged in instances of non-sufficient funds.
#21 - You, the pet owner, grant permission for TransFURMations to post a photo of your pet on our website and/or social media for marketing purposes.
