What's Included

A full groom at Canine To Five includes the following:

  • Bath
  • Brush out
  • Nail trim
  • Haircut*
  • Blow dry
  • Bows or bandana
  • Ear cleaning (plucking upon request)
  • Anal gland expression (if necessary or requested)

Salon Rules

  • If this is your puppy's first groom, they will not receive a full haircut. It is important to go slow and introduce puppies to the sights, sounds, smells, and tools that grooming entails, so their first visit will include a discounted "face, feet, & fanny" cut with lots of positive reinforcement to get them comfortable with this lifelong process
  • Our salon requires any appointment cancellations be made by 4PM the night before. "No call, no shows," or same day cancellations, will be subjected to No Show fees that must be paid prior to booking future appointments
  • Canine To Five reserves the right to refuse services to any dog based on health concerns, behavioral issues, or other circumstances that may prohibit safe grooming practices
  • Dogs who are not picked up after closing time will be boarded overnight and charged for Pawsitive Enrichment Dog Boarding ($75 - $125 per night) in addition to the grooming service that was performed

Additional Services

  • Nail Filing – Sometimes trimming your dog’s nails might leave them a bit jagged. We can only trim them down so far without hurting the dog. For this reason, we offer nail filing and smoothing for an additional fee. This leaves the nails shorter and smoother.
  • Teeth Brushing – Bacteria can collect in your dog’s mouth causing plaque build up and bad breath. To prevent this we offer teeth brushing and breath spray as an additional grooming service. Teeth brushing should be done on a regular basis to ensure that your dog’s experience is as pleasant as possible.
  • Shed Control – Does your dog shed excessively? Our Shed Control treatment can help significantly reduce the amount of loose hair in your home!
  • Blueberry Facial – This spa treatment is crafted to exfoliate and gently cleanse your dog’s face while washing away impurities and dead skin cells to bring out their true beauty. Made from all natural ingredients, this soap free shampoo smells just like a blueberry pie!
  • Flea Shampoo – If we find fleas on your dog it is required that we use a flea shampoo. However, this will only remove fleas currently on your dog, we recommend adding on K9 Advantix as a preventative.
  • Medicated Shampoo – A gentle shampoo with Eucalyptus, Tea Tree Oil and Bergamot essential oil. This is perfect for pets with sensitive skin.
  • Nail Polish – Oo la la - your pup can have their nails painted if you wish. Just let us know!
  • Spa Special – This spa package includes a nail trim, nail filing, teeth brushing, and a premium shampoo of your choice!
  • Winter Paw Special - Winter can be tough on your dog's feet. Add a Winter Paw Special to their bath or groom today and receive oatmeal shampoo, shaved paw pads, and an application of Musher's Secret paw care.

From One of OUr Dog Grooming Clients...


The groomers at Canine to Five are exceptional! They are trustworthy, patient, and professional. After cycling through nearly every groomer in the area, we finally found Canine to Five's Midtown grooming and years later, we've had great experience after great experience. Our grumpy and aging shih tzu is a handful but their groomers give him a wonderful haircut and bath every time. They are caring to his needs and skilled groomers. Highly recommend Canine to Five!
