Pet Size Categories: Choosing the Right Services for Your Pet
No grooming job is too big or too small for our experienced and skilled team to tackle. However, there are a few important bits of information to take into consideration when booking an appointment for grooming services in Millcreek or West Jordan. In addition to detailing which level of grooming services you are interested in, it is always a good idea to let us know ahead of time which pet size category your dog or cat fits into.
Dog Size Categories
While each dog is unique, over the years we have found that most fit into one of 3 different categories. These include:
- Small Dogs – Most small dogs weigh-in at about 1 to 15 pounds. Some of the small dog breeds that we work with include Pomeranian, Maltese, Yorkshire Terrier, Chihuahua, King Charles Spaniel, Dachshund and more.
- Medium Dogs – Typically, medium dogs weigh anywhere from 15 to 35 pounds. Common medium dog breeds include Beagle, Cocker Spaniel, Corgis, Kerry Blue Terrier, Standard Schnauzer, Springer Spaniels and more.
- Large to Extra Large Dogs – We classify dogs weighing from 36 to 180 pounds as large and extra-large dogs. Common breeds include Weimaraner, English Sheepdog, Irish Wolfhound, Labrador Retriever, Siberian Husky, Bloodhound and more.
At the time of booking, please mention your dog’s age, temperament and size category to better help us pair you with the correct groomer and services.
Cats typically fall into either the Kitten or Adult size category. If your cat is a larger breed like a Maine Coon, American Bobtail or Burmese, please mention this at the time of booking. Additionally, let us know a bit about their temperament and whether or not they have been to a professional groomer before. With our special Feline Groom service, your cat can enjoy a haircut, water-less kitty bath and nail trim all rolled into one visit!
