Reservations and payment regarding our Pet Care Services It is mandatory that one of our team meets with you and your pets, in your home, (at least once) before agreeing to care for them. This will ensure providing our service will be comfortable for everyone, especially the pets. All our services must be pre-booked in advance. Due to unforeseen circumstances, there is no particular time frame that you need to pre-book however the sooner you pay to reserve the service the better, otherwise the service cannot be guaranteed. If another client requires the same service and we are not pre-booked with you by payment our time cannot be guaranteed. Electronic Money Transfer is the ONLY form of acceptable payment. After meeting a member of our team but before booking by payment there is a Pet Care Contract that will need to be read and signed by both parties, as well as a Pet Care Instructions Document. Other than the service fee, we reserve the right to change these policies at any time, but only after any changes are discussed with you.

Cancellation policy for Pet Care Services We understand life happens. With the exception of the deposit for our Overnight Pet Sitting service, you many cancel a service at anytime and we will be happy to refund you your money (by Electronic Money Transfer only). We are also happy to hold your payment and apply it to any future service.

Dog Grooming services are provided IN YOUR HOME. We DO NOT have a location at which dogs come to be groomed.  Sorry we DO NOT offer cat grooming. This service is available from St. Stephen to Hampton, and Saint John to Fredericton, New Brunswick!

Each grooming sessions includes brush out or pre-shave (depending on your dogs coat), ear cleaning (plucking), nail trim, bubble bath, blow dry, and finishing tidy. We also provide a basic brush out/bath/blow dry combo, and (a stand alone) nail trim (grinding for an extra fee) service. We supply all the necessary equipment and complete any clean up necessary; you will only need to supply the bathtub!

Puppies through 11 months old, and for young dogs that have yet to experience grooming, who need a bath & light trimming, plus TLC to help them get comfortable with grooming, we offer a 60 minute session that includes, a bath with shampoo & blow dry, 15-minute brushing, light face trim, nail trim, scissoring feet & pad shaving, and sanitary trim. This 60 minute session also includes short breaks from having the puppy on the table, which will allow for rewarded periods of play. We're also happy to take this approach with adult dogs that are intolerant to grooming, to help condition them to become more at ease with grooming sessions. We want to make grooming a positive experience!

May 2020

We have recently partnered with a newly founded community service, The Homie Project ( The Homie Project assists homeless individuals in Fredericton, N.B. with access to affordable grooming, food, and necessary Veterinary care for their pets. Alice's Trail Waggin Pet Services will provide all grooming services at no cost, as well as donate $1 from every grooming service we provide to our clients.

Please read below an article published by The Daily Gleaner about why Angela (the owner of Alice's Trail Waggin Pet Services started this initiative

April 2020

This year, we were planning to host Fredericton's first Low Income Dog Grooming event on April 19th, 2020 however due to COVID-19 we need to postpone that date. We will announce the new date ASAP.

The Fredericton Inn graciously agreed to allow us use of a conference room and outdoor courtyard in order to groom 50 dogs in 6 hours. These dogs share their lives with individuals and families, in our community, that find it difficult to pay for professional dog grooming services.  Many local businesses, professional groomers, and Veterinary teams are donating their time at this event, not mention the already ~40 volunteers ready to help in any way necessary.  Clients of ours (Alice's Trail Waggin Pet Services) have sponsored each of the 50 dogs that are registered.

We're proud to say we were able to raise $2,525. 100% of the proceeds went to a local dog rescue group, ElderDog Canada: Fredericton Pawd Our goal is to make this event a huge success and continue to organize this event every year, perhaps twice a year, moving forward. 

This event will give 50 less fortunate dogs, and their owners, proper grooming and financial relief. This will give individuals and families that otherwise struggle to make a decision between either having a meal, filling a prescription, or getting their dog groomed instant peace of mind. It'll give some lucky dogs a new step into Spring, and a local charity a great donation! We believe every dog deserves to feel its best. Some people can't make that happen on a regular basis but we can!

*PLEASE NOTE sponsorship is not eligible for a tax receipt. The dogs are being sponsored in order to avoid individuals and families from having to pay for grooming services . If you'd like to donate directly to ElderDog please visit Alice's Trail Waggin Pet Services will not be accepting a tax receipt on behalf of this event.
