Nail trimming At A Royal Touch Pooch Parlour.  No appointment needed, come between 10AM and 2PM Tuesday through Friday. $10.00 plus GST.

In order to keep the nails short, nail trimming must be done monthly.  Many people believe if they get the dog’s nails trimmed with grooming it is enough.

It’s not.

If you are getting your pooch groomed every two months or more, we should be seeing you in between for nail maintenance.

Here’s a great read:


And a diagram for you:







So let’s promote Nail awareness this month!

Complimentary Brushing and Combing Lessons for our Clientele

This time of year it’s cold out and no one thinks about Dog Grooming.

But you should!

Many pet owners believe their dog needs lots of fur to keep warm. But without maintenance, all that fur could be matted and painful to your pet, hiding skin conditions, raw skin and even lesions that occur because thick coat traps moisture at the skin. When fresh air can cannot circulate to the skin, did you know your dog can actually develop a fungus, or severely irritated skin? (think diaper rash)

We have been offering complimentary brushing and combing lessons to our clientele at A Royal Touch as long as I have owned the salon. (for 20 years.)

Number of clients who have taken us up on our offer? 0.
Number of clients who are upset that their dog had to be shaved? Hundreds.

So please, give us a call at 403-277-9194 and book a complimentary brushing and combing lesson with one our our amazing Pet Stylists.
We promise no pressure, and no pushy attempts to sell you products and equipment.

We can help you and your pet!

Love and Grooming,
Jeanette and the Ladies at A Royal Touch Pooch Parlour.

The importance of Winter Grooming

A grooming demonstration for our beloved clientele along with a gentle reminder of the importance of winter grooming.

Packed, unhealthy and matted undercoat does not keep your pooch warm! It traps moisture at the skin, leading to skin trauma and fungal infections.

Give us a call this week for your fall deshedding service to help keep your pup’s coat and skin healthy and easy to maintain during the colder weather.

Call to book at 403-277-9194, message us here,
or email aroyaltouchreservations@shaw.ca

Fall Grooming Tips

fall-dogIt’s Fall. For Calgarians, we are still wondering where our summer is!
Our pooches have been wet.  Then dry.  Then wet again.

Has their coats been maintained through our moody weather months?

Matts, when wet, if allowed to air dry will tighten and shrink like a pair of wool pants in the dryer.  This makes them almost impossible to remove.

Please take a brush and a comb through your pet.  Brush backwards, from the tail towards the head, and upwards on the leg. Finish with a metal comb.

Does the comb snag?  A matt free coat will allow the comb to glide from the base to tip of the hair shaft smoothly.  From the skin out.  If it snags, separate the hair and look at the size of your problem. If it is not too big, try to work it out with your brush.  Please watch your dog!  If he or she is suffering, the matts are too tight and must be clipped.

*Please do NOT cut the matts out yourself.  Not only will it look unsightly, but when you lift a matt it will bring SKIN with it. Please don’t do this, the risk to your pet is too high.*

If you are still having trouble, please call your professional pet stylist at A Royal Touch and book an appointment.

Remember, we are happy to provide complimentary brushing and combing lessons to all of our clientele!

At A Royal Touch it is our goal to help you and your pet attain your pet syling goals through humane grooming, ethical handling, and clarity of communication with pet owners.
