Prestige Pet Resort & Spa in Gainesville Grooming Hours:

Mon-Fri: 7:30 am-6:00 pm
Sat: 8:00 am-3:00 pm

Appointments required. 


Dog Bathing & Cat Bathing:

Appointments can take 3-5 hours as to not stress the pet or risk endangering their skin or body. We take great care in keeping your pets feeling comfortable at all times. Text or email notifications available for when your pet is ready to be picked up and show off their haircut!

Our dog baths & cat baths include (besides love & hugs) these spa services:

  • Spa Hydro Therapy massaging bath with hypoallergenic or special shampoo depending on your treatment needs, breed and hair coats

  • Brush out and blow out using a special dryer that removes excess fur from your pet's undercoat

  • Nail trim - with clippers, a dremel grinder or dremel/bevel grinding and rounding (especially good for clients with tender skin)

  • Ear clean - flushed with special cleaner and drying agent

  • Anal gland expression - Evaluated and drained by the groomer.  Anal glands are internally located on each side of the pet's anus which lubricates their bowel movement and are used to leave their scent to mark their territory

Pamper Your Pet with our Specialty Baths!

Exfoliating Bath: Deep cleansing shampoo to help remove dead skin and moisturize the fresh new skin underneath. This bath includes a hydrosurge pulsating rinse to relax the skin and soothe your four-legged friends into a state of bliss. 

Moisturizing Bath: A pulsating hydrosurge bath with a fragrant shampoo enriched with fatty acids that are excellent in adding extra moisture to the skin. This will make the skin have better elasticity and leave the hair soft to the touch. 

Aromatherapy Bath: While your pet enjoys a warm water pulsating hydrotherapy bath they can relax even more with the smells of lavender, chamomile or wild flowers as if they were in a meadow. 

Hydrotherapy Body Massage: This is a 10-minute pulsating warm water bath massage with our hydrosurge. The pulsating water will feel like a dozen hands lightly massaging the skin as the warm water soothes and relaxes the muscles. This is an excellent choice for older pets with arthritis or if you just want to pamper your furry friend with a relaxing bath massage. 

Puppy Facial: This is especially helpful for our Pugs, Peke’s, Frenchie’s and English Bulldog friends who have folds near their eyes and nose that are difficult to clean. The groomer can use special tools and cleaners to freshen up these areas and remove dead skin or debris that builds up over time. Leave the spa feeling refreshed and clean. 

Paw di Cure: Nail Trim and a variety of nail polish colors

Read what other Gainesville pet owners say about pet grooming at Prestige Pet Resort & Spa:

"Today I brought my two dogs into to be groomed and was very satisfied! My mini poodle looks beautiful! I told them about her anxiety and how she chews herself up when she's in a new place and when I picked her up she hadn't done that at all. My other dog is a mutt and fearful of new people I took him in for a nail trim and the groomer handled him wonderfully! Great staff, great prices, and did I say, great staff?! Thank you we will definitely be going back!"

"My darling, critter chasing, stock dogs (Australian Shepherds) that live on acreage out in the country come home happy, tail bobs wiggling and looking like show dogs!! Their hair flows, feet are tight and tidy and he takes most of the hair from their bellies so that when they lie on the floor it lowers the body temp starting right away. He knows their unique body conformations and they always look like magnificent creatures when leaving!"
