Groom & Board Tour

Grooming

Keeping your pet on a regular grooming and nail trim schedule is important for their health, especially for our more furry and fluffy friends! And while grooming can be stressful for some, we take a number of steps to ensure your pet comes home relaxed and looking great. Our pup salon utilizes a quiet lift table for easier access without being loud and scary, a Hydro Surge tub and bathing system for a quicker bathing experience, and high-quality shampoos and conditioners to leave your pet smelling amazing. Our grooming staff pays close attention to your pet’s ears and skin and will report any concerns to you along with our veterinary staff. Each visit finishes with a final brush out, festive bandana, and a spritz of cologne – your pet will never look better!

Daycare

Behind every well-intentioned pet owner is usually a busy schedule and a guilty feeling when your dog is left home alone all day. Enter doggy daycare at River Valley! Daycare is a great way for your pet to exercise, socialize, and come home happy, healthy and tired. We offer daycare Monday-Friday and we hold two playgroups per day with lunch and downtime in-between. We keep the safety of your pet as our number one priority, and our staff is highly trained and able to handle any kind of dog interaction safely and efficiently.
