What Makes Yappie Cuttery Unique?

AT YAPPIE CUTTERY, WE HAVE BUILT A REPUTATION FOR OUTSTANDING SERVICE, WORKMANSHIP, AND CLIENT SATISFACTION. WE PROVIDE ALL OUR SERVICES AT AFFORDABLE PRICES BECAUSE WE BELIEVE COST SHOULD NEVER INTERFERE WITH THE QUALITY OF GROOMING YOUR PETS RECEIVE.

WE HAVE A UNIQUELY LARGE GROOMING STAFF THAT ALLOWS US TO ACCOMMODATE NEXT-DAY APPOINTMENTS, AS WELL AS WALK-INS BEFORE 11:00AM. OUR GROOMERS ARE NOT DRIVEN TO RUSH THE GROOMING PROCESS. AT YAPPIE CUTTERY, ALL PETS RECEIVE THE CARE AND ATTENTION THEY DESERVE, NO MATTER HOW LONG IT TAKES; THIS HAS MADE US POPULAR WITH GERIATRIC AND HARD-TO-HANDLE PETS.

WE USE A MILD, PH-BALANCED SHAMPOO WITH A BUILT-IN CONDITIONER FOR ALL GROOMINGS. CLIENTS WITH PETS THAT REQUIRE SPECIAL OR MEDICATED SHAMPOO ARE WELCOME TO PROVIDE THE SHAMPOO THEMSELVES.

VIP 10% Discount Program

FOR OUR VIP 10% DISCOUNT PROGRAM, YOUR PET IS SCHEDULED TO BE GROOMED EVERY SIX WEEKS FOR A FULL GROOMING IN ORDER TO ENJOY DISCOUNTED PRICING. IF YOU CANNOT KEEP AN APPOINTMENT, WE ARE HAPPY TO RESCHEDULE IT WITHIN ONE WEEK OF THE ORIGINAL DATE TO MAINTAIN YOUR VIP DISCOUNT.

MEMBERS OF THIS PROGRAM RECEIVE 10% OFF OF OUR FULL GROOMING SERVICES.

TEETH BRUSHING IS INCLUDED WITH EACH GROOMING, WHICH SAVES YOU $18-$25 WHEN COMPARED TO WHAT YOU WOULD PAY TO HAVE YOUR PET’S TEETH BRUSHED WITHOUT BEING A VIP.

VIP 25% Discount Program

OUR VIP 25% DISCOUNT PROGRAM IS FOR CLIENTS WHO HAVE THEIR PETS GROOMED BY TRAINED INTERNS OF OUR AFFILIATE, THE VIRGINIA SCHOOL OF PET GROOMING. INTERNS ARE CLOSELY SUPERVISED BY A CERTIFIED INSTRUCTOR AS THEY GAIN PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE IN THE ART OF GROOMING, AND NO PET LEAVES THE SALON WITHOUT BEING CHECKED AND APPROVED BY A PROFESSIONAL.

THIS PROGRAM OFFERS THE SAME SIX-WEEK SCHEDULE AND HIGH-QUALITY SERVICES AS THE VIP 10% DISCOUNT PROGRAM, BUT AT A LARGER DISCOUNT OF 25% OFF OF OUR FULL GROOMING SERVICES.

What If My Pet Does Not Receive a Full Grooming?

FOR CLIENTS WHO CHOOSE OUR BBT SERVICES, WE ARE HAPPY TO SCHEDULE YOUR PET EVERY SIX WEEKS AND PROVIDE A FREE TEETH BRUSHING WITH EACH GROOMING. HOWEVER, THERE IS NO DISCOUNTED PRICING FOR BBTS.

Pricing

OUR NEW PRICING STRUCTURE IS BASED ON WEIGHT AND HAIR TYPE. WE WILL WEIGH YOUR PET AND ASSIGN HIM/HER TO ONE OF THE FOLLOWING CATEGORIES:

SMALL (0-15LBS)

MEDIUM (16-30LBS)

LARGE (31-60LBS)

EXTRA LARGE (61-80LBS)

AFTER BEING ASSIGNED A WEIGHT CATEGORY, YOUR PET WILL FURTHER BE CLASSIFIED BY COAT TYPE. THIS PRICING STRUCTURE WILL ALLOW US TO CHARGE IN A MORE CONSISTENT AND FAIR MANNER THAN DETERMINING PRICES BY BREED.

No Shows and Cancellations

IF YOU NO SHOW FOR AN APPOINTMENT, YOU MUST PRE-PAY FOR YOUR PET’S GROOMING IN ORDER TO RESCHEDULE. THE PAYMENT IS NON-REFUNDABLE IF YOU LATER CANCEL THE RESCHEDULED APPOINTMENT OR NO SHOW AGAIN. MULTIPLE NO SHOWS MAY RESULT IN YAPPIE CUTTERY BARRING YOU FROM SCHEDULING ANY FUTURE APPOINTMENTS.

WE HAVE A 48 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY. AFTER TWO INSTANCES OF CANCELLING WITH LESS THAN 48 HOURS’ NOTICE, YOU MUST PRE-PAY BEFORE RESCHEDULING THE APPOINTMENT. AS WITH NO SHOWS, THE PAYMENT IS NON-REFUNDABLE.

Drop Off and Pick Up

DROP-OFF TIME IS 8:00AM – 10:00AM MONDAY – SATURDAY. IT IS OUR GOAL TO GET YOUR PET HOME AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BUT THE TIME YOU DROP YOUR PET OFF IS NOT ALWAYS INDICATIVE OF WHEN YOUR PET WILL BE FINISHED. GROOMERS START WORKING ON DOGS BASED ON THE EARLIEST DROP-OFF TIME, BUT DEPENDING ON COAT CONDITION, TYPE OF GROOMING REQUESTED, AGE, SIZE, AND LEVEL OF COOPERATION, ANY DOG COULD BE FINISHED ANYWHERE FROM EARLY AFTERNOON TO CLOSING, REGARDLESS OF WHEN THE GROOMERS BEGIN THE GROOMING. BY TAKING THE TIME TO BE ATTENTIVE TO EACH DOG’S INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, WE CREATE A STRESS-FREE ATMOSPHERE FOR YOUR PET SO THAT THE FINAL OUTCOME IS THE HIGH-QUALITY GROOMING FOR WHICH WE ARE KNOWN.

Vaccines

DOGS AND CATS MUST BE UP-TO-DATE ON THEIR RABIES VACCINATIONS IN ORDER TO BE GROOMED AT YAPPIE CUTTERY. IF OUR RECORDS SHOW THAT YOUR PET IS NOT UP-TO-DATE, YOU MUST PROVIDE PROOF OF VACCINATION NO LATER THAN THE DAY BEFORE YOUR APPOINTMENT BY EMAILING THE RABIES CERTIFICATE TO YAPPIECUTTERY@AOL.COM.

Fleas, De-Matting, and Senior Pets

IF FLEAS OR TICKS ARE FOUND ON YOUR PET, HE/SHE WILL BE BATHED USING FLEA AND TICK SHAMPOO. THERE WILL BE A SEPARATE FEE FOR THE TREATMENT IN ADDITION TO THE REGULAR GROOMING CHARGES.

A SEVERELY MATTED PET WILL BE GIVEN A FULL-BODY CLIP-DOWN, AND YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SIGN A CONSENT FORM FOR THE GROOMING. A SEPARATE FEE WILL BE ASSIGNED IN ADDITION TO THE REGULAR GROOMING CHARGES BASED ON THE EXTENT OF YOUR PET’S MATTING.

FOR PETS OVER THE AGE OF 12 YEARS, WE REQUIRE A SENIOR PET WAIVER TO BE SIGNED PRIOR TO RENDERING SERVICES.
