"Baker's Acres is a fabulous place to leave your pet for their own staycation as you know they are in excellent hands. Whether our dog is there for the spa treatment day or for an overnight stay, we know she is well looked after and will get plenty of exercise and attention."
- Tina Pedersen Giesbrecht -
"Not only did my pup have a great time at day care for a groom, when he stayed over during the holidays, he was treated like their own...even came home smelling like gingerbread! Best service in a groomer/kennel we've had!"

At Bakers Acres we understand the importance of accurate paperwork for many reasons, most important for your pets health and well being. This form is used by Bakers Acres to ensure continuity from one haircut to the next and during different seasons.
A copy of this grooming report is put in Bakers Acres files and is available to you upon request.
You may see your dog scooting, shaking his head, or itching after his groom. This form may be able to explain these behaviours. for example if your dogs ears were given a full clean he may shake his head for a few days to clear the cleaning solution. This form will also reiterate verbal recommendations such as ear infections that require veterinary assistance.
This form may also be useful to take to your vet visit so that the professionals can assess your pups condition with accurate first hand information. For example, his ears have built up gunk in the 2 days since a full clean, indicating an issue.
Every dog is different and every groom is different depending on their needs.
Form may not be exactly as shown.
Humanity before Vanity
“Matting” refers to tangled clumps of fur in a pet’s coat. Mats can form in both the outer coat as well as the sometimes unnoticed deeper undercoat. Severe matting is painful during brushing by causing live hairs to be pulled out of the skin. Even mild matting can cause pain. Due to the weight of large mats that can pull and loosen the skin, underneath can be tender, irritated skin that is vulnerable to clippers. De-matting requires a professional groomer demonstrating a slow, careful process and an extremely patient dog.
Matting can cut off blood supply to extremities, and deny air circulation. Skin under mats can become irritated with open sores that can easily become infected and emit foul odors. Parasites can get cozy between matted fur and skin causing your pet frustration and family infestation. Even organic matter, like grass, sticks, dirt and weeds can become embedded in the skin. Mats can contain stool and become home to fly larvae that can further irritate the skin.
Bakers Acres does not demat. We are more than happy to shave the nuisance mats off with your permission, providing your pets joyous relief!
