FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do we work with aggressive dogs?
We always try our best to work with what we have and try to leave the best results, but always remember health comes first over beauty, and most of the time, dogs that are aggressive and/or nervous become really complicated to work on, so trying to force something done on them isn’t the best option. It could get to a point where we have to return the dog back to its owner and explain the situation thoroughly to the owner to not stress or harm the dog in any way. OR No - Animal Kingdom does NOT work with aggressive dogs under any circumstances.
Why can't I stay during my pets groom?
We work with very sharp equipment and we have to be extremely careful with how we handle your pet and our equipment. And unfortunately, 99% of dogs start getting impatient and become protective and defensive if they see or hear their owner, and thus the grooming process becomes dangerous and stressful to both the groomer and your pet.

Can I stay and watch while you groom my pet?
