Pride ...

Here at The Pooch we only book one dog at at time. We ask that you are on time with your appointment and respect your given pick up time to avoid a late charge. Most dogs are completed within a 2 hour time frame. Single bookings ensure that your dog is our main focus. We do not crate dry. All dogs are hand dried. Dogs with mats or fleas  will be subject to an extra charge. Dematting can be painful to a dog. We do not 'demat' but will bath your dog, velocity dry, and use the longest clipper in order to save the most coat. Prevention is the best advise. Comb.. comb.. comb.. your pet. 


Around the The Grateful Pooch....

 The GratefulPooch is located on Parry rd in Metchosin which is surrounded by farmlands, beaches, and trails. We are only a short drive from Langford, Colwood, Sooke, and East Sooke......and worth every minute. 

  Here on our farm we have 2 quarter horse,  2 miniature horses, a German Shepard and a cat. We are a two minute walk from My Chosen Cafe and the Sea Bluff Trail which is a great place to walk your dog! on a leash....
