At The Water Bowl, we offer professionally trained, full-service grooming for dogs. It is our goal to provide a safe, clean, and stress-free grooming experience for your pet.
Every spa bath includes a brush-out, bathing, conditioning, blow-drying, ear cleaning, nail trimming and gland expressing, if needed.
Your pet will first receive a brush-out of loose or dead hair. The groomer then proceeds with a thorough, deep-cleaning bath, choosing from many different shampoos to match your animal's needs, followed by a conditioner to soften the fur and loosen the undercoat. The pet is then dried until completely free of water, with a combination of warm forced air and cool air flows to avoid burns. The groomer finishes with a thorough ear cleaning and removal of any hair inside of the ear canal. The final step is the nail trimming, where the nails are clipped as short as possible without causing harm or stress to your pet. We also offer nail filing for a smooth finish.
Spa Bath with Professional Cut (Full Groom)
Every full groom comes with the services listed in the spa bath plus hand scissoring and/or clipper work per breed standards or to the owner's specifications. Our professionally trained groomer will work with you to find that perfect cut for your pet.

How Often Should My Pet Be Groomed?
For short-haired dogs, we suggest a minimum of four baths per year, or one per season. However, many people take advantage of our services on a weekly or monthly basis. For dogs with short to medium length haircuts, we suggest grooming every six to eight weeks. Dogs with long hair or high-maintenance coats need attention on a regular basis. In order to keep a coat free from mats and tangling, we suggest being groomed every four to six weeks, along with brushing and combing at home to ensure a stress-free and painless grooming experience.
Bathing and grooming prices vary by breed, coat condition, size of animal, temperament and desired cut. Please call (630) 457-5583 for a price quote.
