How Do I Set Up a Groom for My Dog?
- Complete the online reservation form:
First-Time Clients: Make an appointment online
Current Clients: Use our express form
- Jess will contact you to discuss your dog and your needs, if there are any questions.
- We will book your appointment and get your reservation entered in our scheduling system.
- You will receive an automatic email confirming the booking.
- Drop your dog off at anytime after 6am on the day of your dog's groom if they are staying for daycare. If just for grooming, drop off at scheduled grooming appt. time.
- Wait for a email from us informing you that your dog's grooming is complete and they are ready for pick up.
If your dog is a current daycare dog, feel free to pick up your dog at the doggie daycare anytime AFTER that pickup time, up until 10pm. (Feel free to pack a dinner for your pooch; we are happy to feed meals anytime!)
There will be a normal daycare charge if your dog stays an hour or more after you are notified that your groom is complete.
Get To Know The Groomer!
Jess started working in the daycare in February 2015 and took seminars and classes to learn how to groom dogs when she discovered that we needed a groomer. Her customers loved her haircuts! She quickly rose through the ranks to become our Daycare Manager in November 2016. She had to stop grooming in Jan 2018, as her managerial duties required it. In July 2019, she returned to grooming again! She has two cats, Ichabod and Naked Kitty (a Sphynx), and an Australian Shepherd named Bear. Her favorite dog breeds are Vizslas and German Shorthaired Pointers. She has been to many seminars by renowned trainers, vets, and behaviorists in the industry. She couldn’t imagine any other place to spend her days than at Gemini and is so happy to have her Gemini Family.

Questions and Answers:
HOW IMPORTANT IS REGULAR GROOMING?
Booking regular grooms for your dog is not only important to maintain a healthy coat, but is also important in order to provide your dog with a grooming experience that is positive. A dog that comes in for a long overdue groom has a much longer groom than one who is coming in on schedule.
HOW MUCH WILL MY DOG'S GROOM COST?
