Equipment and Process
Mavis has a fully equipped van with a hydro surge bathing system. This particular system deposits the shampoo in the water with a gentle spa-like force. The grooming table is electric in order for Mavis to reach each animal comfortably. She also has various shampoos and conditioners to meet the needs of each client. The van is also air-conditioned so that each client will be comfortable during the hot summer months.
When groomed, each dog's anal glands are expressed. Then, Mavis gives a sanitary clip along with a toenail clip. She continues by removing dead hair from the ear canals and swabs the ears with an antiseptic ear cleaner. Next, the dog is bathed and dried with the blow dryer. If the weather is hot, Mavis only uses the "warm" setting. After the dog is dry, she clips and scissors to accomplish the beautiful finish. The final step is a finishing spray with rose hips that repels dirt.
