Due to the risk involved to both the pet and the employees of Dreadlocks for Dingoes the cost of grooming aggressive pets will vary from situation to situation; however, costs range from $150- $400.         


Aggressive Pets

We do not base our decision, of whether or not your pet is aggressive or hard to handle, on grooming experiences at other establishments, only on how your pet behaves here. We have found that this atmosphere is very different from other places and pets tend to respond well in our care.

Please keep in mind the cost for sedation at a vet will range from $200-$300 plus the cost of the groom. At Dreadlocks for Dingoes, we do not sedate and our cost includes rehabilitation for your pet. We hope to change the way your pet responds to grooming resulting in the removal of your pet from the "aggressive/hard to handle" status to the regular pricing ranges.

At Dreadlocks for Dingoes, we are extremely successful at accomplishing this with compassion and dedication. We hope you put your trust in us and we will continue to work with you and your pet unless we find it in the best interest of your pet to send him/her to a vet for sedated grooming.

In the event of a bite that results in emergency medical care, please understand that the cost of care will be added to the services rendered for the day.

Note: This means that if we conclude that your dog is indeed related to rabid dragons, the quality of your dog’s hair cut may be affected, if the groom cannot be completed due to your pets demonic behavior, you will still owe us for the services completed.
