How is this salon different from other grooming facilities?

The traditional grooming salon model is commission based and provides a very modest amount of groomers a livable wage. Original Grooming is a cowork salon for groomers interested in more autonomy in their work. Every groomer is in business for themselves. They create their own schedule, book their appointments, and set their own prices. Think of Original Grooming as many private grooming salons all in one location. At our grooming facility, groomers and dogs alike enjoy the collaborative work environment. We believe our community benefits from working and playing together.

Do I need to book an appointment in advance?

Yes, grooming services require an appointment. Our salons use Vagaro* or Moego** booking software so that you may schedule, edit, or view appointment(s) at your convenience. All appointments booked through Vagaro receive and email and/or text when booked and a reminder 24 hours prior to the scheduled appointment. Same day appointments are possible for some groomers but you will still need to request an appointment through either booking software.
