The Paws Here Pet Salon is open for appointments 6 days per week. For your convenience we offer appointents on Saturday, Sundays and each day until 6 pm. The salon is closed on Wednesday. You need not be a registered guest at the resort to book for grooming. Everyone is welcome!!
Because every pet is unique, during your initial appointment we schedule a consultation so we can be fully aware of your desires and concerns regarding your pet's salon experience. We will evaluate the condition of the coat and current trim and give you an estimate of the time and charge for your pet's groom. We will also make recommendations concerning the best plan to maintain and care for the coat, skin, ears and nails. We will suggest equiptment that should be used at home if necessary and help schedule your next visit.
