Give Your Dog a Spa Day

Just as us humans need to go to the hair salon every once in a while, so do dogs.

Grooming is a great way to make your pup smell fresh, get rid of shedding undercoat, and trim sharp nails.

We offer several dog grooming services at Critter Cradle in Bardstown, KY perfect for any breed.

Get your dog looking like a million bucks today!

What Your Pup Gets
  • Hair Cut: The groomer will discuss the type of cut you are wanting for your dog. Once both parties have agreed to the final decision, your pup’s spa day will begin.

    First, they will receive a bath in either an oatmeal or hypoallergenic shampoo (both smell SOOO good!). Should your pet need medicated shampoo, please bring that to the appointment.

    The bath is then followed up with a blow dry.

    Next up is the actual hair cut. This will either be a standard breed cut or whatever you have discussed with your groomer.

    The last part of the appointment is a nail trim and shaping.

  • Deshedding: First up is a good scrub down in the tub to help loosen up excess hair and undercoat. We will use either an oatmeal, hypoallergenic, or owner-provided medicated shampoo.

    Your dog will then be dried with a high-pressured dryer with a special nozzle to really get all the hair out.

    Last up is a good brushing to polish the final look.

  • Bath & Brush: This is your standard dog bath. Your dog will get lathered up with either an oatmeal, hypoallergenic, or owner-provided medicated shampoo.

    This will be followed by a blow dry and thorough brush out to polish the look.

  • Self-Bath: Dog owners can have a timeslot to use our grooming room to give your dog a much needed bath.

    You will have access to our tubs, staff shampoos and staff conditioners only – not our dryers, nail trimmers or dremels.

    We ask you call at least 30 minutes ahead of time to check availability.
