Toenail Trimming and Grinding
The benefits of well-trimmed toenails on a dog go way beyond aesthetics. Long toenails can wreak havoc with the natural alignment of the feet and legs causing joint stress, instability, poor posture, altered gait, and arthritis. Properly trimmed toenails allow for a dog’s correct foot placement on the ground, providing a natural and comfortable stance, which creates good posture and gait. The importance of well-trimmed toenails cannot be overstated. We’ll work with you and your dog to get the nails to a proper length and keep them there. And yes, we’ll be happy to teach you how to trim your own dog’s nails!

Dog’s ears differ from human ears in that dogs have mostly vertical ear canals while humans have horizontal canals. Because of this, it’s easy for moisture and debris to get trapped in the dog’s ear canal which can lead to itchy and sometimes smelly ears. A regular, gentle cleaning with ear solution and the removal of excess hair can reduce the chance of irritation or infection and help keep your dog happy and smelling good!
- *$8.00 (includes ear wash solution)

Anal Gland Expression
Anal glands are two sacs located on either side of a dog’s anus. These glands produce an unpleasant smelling fluid whose sole purpose is to lend a unique scent to their stool, which helps other dogs to identify them. Unfortunately, there are times when the anal glands don’t empty (express) naturally and the fluid builds up inside the sac. Left unattended, the sac can rupture and a trip to the vet is in order. The symptoms of anal gland problems can be scooting across the floor or twirling in a sitting position, biting at the area, or sometimes, you’ll just notice a strange and unpleasant odor. Some dogs never have trouble with their anal glands while others may have occasional or frequent problems. We don’t recommend routine anal gland expressing if you or your vet are not seeing signs of a problem. If there is a problem though, we’ll be happy to express the glands for you – outside, of course!
Teeth and Gum Assessment and Care
The condition of your dog’s teeth and gums can be a window to their health. Bad breath, inflamed gums, broken or cracked teeth, plaque, and tartar can all be a sign of trouble brewing. Kidney disease and heart valve inflammation are more prevalent in dogs with periodontal disease. Unfortunately, a large percentage of dogs have some sort of periodontal disease by the age of 3 years! We can inspect the state of your dog’s teeth and gums, perform basic dental hygiene and help you decide on a dental care plan that works for you and your dog.

We offer bathing at self-serve dog wash facilities as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with our De-Matting or De-Shedding Services. If your dog has mats, we recommend removal of the mats prior to bathing.
We will pick up your dog for a trip to the nearest self-serve dog wash. While there, we will brush, bathe, and dry your dog. This service also includes a nail trim and ear cleaning. In less than 2 hours, we’ll drop your dog off at home, all clean and fresh-smelling!
- $30 – $50 plus self-serve facility charge (usually about $20-$30)
There are many benefits to brushing your dog regularly – but doing a thorough job takes time and it can be hard to fit into your busy schedule. Or maybe your dog doesn’t enjoy being brushed and making the attempt just creates stress for you and your dog. We can help! We’ll take the time to do the job right and help your dog become accustomed to the feel of the brush. Before long, your dog will be begging for more!
Here are a few of the many advantages of regular brushing:
- A healthier, shinier coat – Brushing stimulates the skin allowing natural oils to be distributed throughout the coat.
- A cleaner dog with less ‘doggie smell’ – Removing dirt and debris on a regular basis promotes good hygiene, lessens doggie smell, and prevents mats from forming, which can irritate the skin.
- Early detection of possible health issues – During brushing, we examine your dog’s skin, looking for lumps, bumps, irritations, ticks and evidence of fleas. Finding and dealing with problems early can save you and your pet lots of heartache down the road.
- Controls shedding! – Regular brushing greatly reduces the amount of dog hair that accumulates in your home and on your clothes. Whatever ends up in the brush doesn’t end up on you!
We’ll choose the proper brush for your dog’s coat type and take the time to do the job right. Both you and your dog will be delighted with the results!
BONUS! Regular brushing can have a relaxing effect on your dog!
- One time service – $20.00 – $35.00
- Weekly or Twice Monthly Coat Brush-out – $10.00 – $25.00 per visit
Some dogs have coats that seem to grow mats! Try as you may to keep up on brushing, mats can still show up anywhere including behind the ears, between the hind legs, and under the front legs. Or maybe your dog had exercise restrictions while recuperating from a surgery or injury and developed mats with all that laying around. There are many reasons dogs can become matted. Mats can cause skin irritation and cover up open sores leading to some major skin issues. Instead of just cutting the mats out and leaving a patchy coat, we use a special de-matting technique that helps to save as much hair as possible. Once we’re done, your dog will look fabulous again! Please Note: If your dog is heavily matted or has existing medical issues such as limb weakness, we may recommend a series of 2-4 sessions so as not to stress your dog.
- $15.00 – $60.00+ (depending on size of dog and severity of mats)
Smooth coat, long coat, curly coat, wire coat, double coat – whatever type of coat your dog has, if there’s shedding, we can help! We offer a one-time de-shedding treatment using the correct tool needed for your dog’s coat type to help remove as much dead fur as possible.
If your dog is in a seasonal shedding state, you may want to consider Canine Revival’s Seasonal De-Shedding Service (see below) which provides a series of de-shedding treatments.
- $10.00 – $35.00 (depending on coat length and texture)
Seasonal De-Shedding Service
A Canine Revival Exclusive!
Because a dog usually sheds over a period of several weeks, the standard one-time de-shedding treatment, offered by most grooming facilities, is only effective for a few days.
Canine Revival’s exclusive and unique Seasonal De-Shedding Service will remove much more excess and loose fur from your dog because it’s done over a period of several weeks. Continual brushing and the use of de-shedding tools specifically designed for your dog’s coat type helps to remove more dead fur faster and actually lessens the shedding time!
We offer several De-Shedding packages based on your dog’s coat. Some dogs may only need 2-3 sessions (most short-hair breeds), while others may need up to 6 (those with double-coats).
You can expect a shorter shedding time, less hair on you and in your house, and 99% of dogs LOVE the extra attention! You’ll be more than pleased with the results!
- $45.00 – $95.00 (based on coat type and number of sessions)
