Best In Show requires that all dogs be up to date on the RABIES, DISTEMPER (DAPP,DHPP) and all cats be up to date on the FVCRP, and FELV Vaccines. If your pet is unable to have any of these vaccines we require a vets note that pardons your pet from having them.
Our grooming and bathing prices are based on the breed, weight, condition of the coat.
Having your dog groomed professionally on a 4-6 week schedule helps remove dead hair that your dog sheds naturally and can also cause matting. Removing dead coat will also help keep your dog cooler since all the extra coat will no longer be there. It also helps keep the nails at a comfortable length, and the ears clean and able to breathe.
We begin the bathing process with a nail trim/grind, ear cleaning and teeth brushing. At Best In Show we only use premium shampoos, conditioners, and leave in products to ensure the best results for pets skin and grooming. We start with a clarifying shampoo and use a bathing system that massages the shampoo into your pets coat, this is when we express the anal glands if they need it. Then your pets get a rinse followed by a facial tear free shampoo that is gently brushed through their ears and muzzle, the final shampoo is specifically selected for your pets coat type, and then the shampoo is rinsed off. Your pet then gets towel dried, a leave in conditioner is applied, continued with a hand dry and brushing.
Full Hair Cut
Includes everything in our bathing package plus a full body cut where we use clippers or scissors on the whole body to create the look you want.
Mini Hair Cut
Includes everything in our bathing package plus a sanitary trim, pad trim, and clean up of the face and feathers.
We trim nails, bathe, brush out and shave cats. We like to keep cats for a minimal amount of time to ensure their grooming visit was pleasant and stress free.
De-Shedding Shampoo and Conditioner
The de-shed shampoo and conditioner is massaged deep into the coat and left on for five minutes. This allows the hair follicle to absorb the shampoo and conditioner and release the dead, shedding hair. In between the shampoo and conditioning, we use a velocity dryer to blow out as much as the coat as possible in the tub. Additional fees apply.
Flea and Tick Shampoo
Kills what is on the dog/cat.If we find fleas or ticks on your pet we will give the pet a mandatory flea and tick bath, starting at $15. The price will increase with the size of your pet.

Best in Show is spacious and clean. While your pet is waiting for you they are kept in their own cubby – not a cage which I LOVE. Her grooming table is the first thing you see when you enter – another feature I like… you can SEE what is going on. Staff is gentle will all dogs and all dogs seem to respond to well to them. Cant day enough good things about Maggie and her staff.
