Walk-in Nail Trimming

This service is offered Monday through Saturday from 8:30AM to 12:00PM. Walk-in nail trims do not require a scheduled appointment.





Professional Dog and Cat Grooming

It’s time for you to face the facts. Your dog is looking a little shaggy and although he’s not telling you, he’s embarrassed to walk through the neighborhood. Here at Candlewick, we have a full service grooming salon. So go ahead, give your dog a day full of attention, pampering and relaxation! You can let him walk the neighborhood with pride and strut his stuff at the dog park again.

Groomer Experience

Appointments are available Monday through Saturday.  In order to ensure you are able to schedule an appointment on a day that is ideal for you we recommend contacting us two weeks prior to your desired date.  You may drop your pet off between the hours of 7:00am and 10:00am on the day of your appointment, Monday through Friday. Drop off times are between 8:00 am and 10:00am on Saturdays. When you drop off your pet, a pick up time will be scheduled with our receptionist giving adequate time for your pet to be bathed, brushed, scissored and properly dried. Typical pick up times begin at 2:00pm and will vary depending upon your time of arrival. You can pick your pet up anytime between your scheduled pick up time and our closing time of 7:00pm Monday through Friday and 6:00pm on Saturdays. We provide all pets with fresh water and time to stretch or relieve themselves in our courtyard while they are in our care, whether they are in our salon for a few hours or all afternoon.

The maintenance needed for our own human hair is very similar to what is required to keep our dogs coat healthy and attractive. As we use special hair treatments, shampoos and deep conditioners, there are similar products for dogs. Our top of the line products to choose from are as follows:

Whether you’re looking for a traditional style or have a personal preference, our Professional Groomers have the necessary experience and familiarity with anything from popular to the most unique of breeds. Driven and devoted to a lifetime career as grooming specialists, Candlewick’s groomers’ describes their work as exciting, challenging and extremely rewarding. Your groomer is always available for a consultation the day of your appointment and you may request your favorite groomer for all future appointments.

Bath & Brush

When your pet is between full grooming sessions, a bath and brush appointment is the perfect way to keep your pet’s coat free of mattes and fresh smelling. This is also a great option for pets with short coats that do not need a haircut. We use special brushes and combs that help release shedding hair. We also include a shampoo, conditioning crème rinse, Furminator, brush work, nail clipping and ear cleaning.

Basic Bath

Bathing includes a shampoo, conditioning, nail clipping and ear cleaning.


Note - Prices vary by breed, coat condition and style of haircut requested. Please contact our office for price estimations.

Shed-Less Bath

When used on a regular basis this shampoo helps reduce shedding.

Medicated Bath

A gentle formula shampoo that is used to aid in healing skin aliments and disorders. More specifically, medicated baths will provide temporary relief of itching and flaking of seborrheic dermatitis.


Oatmeal Bath

An all-natural anti-itch shampoo used to soothe those pets who suffer from seasonal dry skin or mild allergies.


This hypoallergenic, non-irritating formula is best used for those pets with allergies or those that are sensitive to grooming products. Hypo baths leave the coat lustrous, soft and tangle free.



The fuzzy creature waddling through your backyard with the unmistakable white stripe serves as a giant warning sign for any pet owner. Your pet may, however, feel unbelievably fortunate to have found a new playmate (at least at first). Our skunk bath treatment is the best way to get rid of the overwhelming odor from an unpleasant encounter.




White Coat Enhancing

This shampoo really brings out the color and shine of a white coat.  


Dark Coat Enhancing

This dark coat enhancing shampoo adds brilliance and sparkling accents to charcoal, black, blue and other dark

colored coats.


Nail Grinding

Nail grinding is a method that polishes off nail clipping leaving nails as short as possible, smooth,

and rounded.



Tooth Brushing

This service is a tooth brushing, not to be confused with a tooth cleaning performed by a veterinarian. For tooth brushing, our groomers use a tooth brush specifically designed for dogs and a dental gel that safely and effectively helps fight gum disease, prevents plaque build-up, and controls bad breath.





Anal Gland Expression

Usually during defecation, anal glands are naturally emptied. However, this is not always the case. Clogged or enlarged anal glands can be uncomfortable to your pet and need to be professionally expressed. Excessive licking, biting, or scooting along the carpet are all signs your pet requires an anal gland expression. If your dog is in constant need of anal gland expression, or has a bad odor, it is advised to visit your veterinarian.




Flea and Tick

This treatment will rid your dog of any nuisance lice, fleas, or ticks. Also, this shampoo conditions, deodorize and leaves the coat with a radiant sheen.
