Your family pet deserves a fresh smelling bath and clean up! 

At Bokhara Pet Resort, we pamper your pet - dog or cat, long-haired or short-haired - with medicated and natural flea baths...scissor finishing...and TLC (no tranquilizes used). 

We have spa treatments and grooming techniques that you could never do at home. Our grooming staff is highly experienced in bathing  and trims. Regular grooming not only helps pets look (and smell) better, it keeps them healthier, as well.  

We offer the HydroSurge Massaging Bathing System for your pet’s enjoyment.  Our stylists have professional experience with all breeds of cats and dogs, and will consult with you to provide the finished look that you want for your pet.  Salon rates are dependent on the breed, coat condition and your special requests.

We are a GREEN facility - Soap & Chemical FREE shampoos & conditioners used. No Harsh Chemicals are ever used on your pet!

YES, WE GROOM FELINES - Not many salons do these days!

TOP GROOMING SCHOOL GRADUATE, Ellen White is a graduate of the International Nash Academy of Dog Grooming School.   Nash Academy is one of the BEST dog grooming schools in the USA, and no other grooming salon in Northern Michigan can currently advertise the pet grooming services of a Nash International Grooming Academy graduate!  Along with Ellen's years of practical application, and her professional training & schooling, Ellen know exactly how your breed should be groomed.



Full Service Grooming & Special Styling: Includes our above Bath Treatment plus hand scissoring per breed-specific standards and/or to owner's specifications, including the trimming of pasterns, hocks, tail, hair in-between the toes, and furnishings. Ask our staff for suggested styles and treatments or products to make your pet look and feel their best.  Our professional grooming staff will help your pet look and feel their best by cutting, clipping, brushing and even polishing nails if requested. Your pet can be polished and pampered to look his or her best!  We offer the finishing touches: Bows, Bandanas, and Braids. Inquire with our pet care professionals for suggested treatments or products for your pet.

Often we are asked to bathe pets to remove obnoxious odors, i.e. skunk, depending upon the severity of the condition - it is not guaranteed that all of the odors can be removed as sensitive areas such as around the eyes, ears, and nostrils, etc. can't be suds effectively.  In many cases it will take multiple baths to remove most of the odors.

Our salon features a bathing area with a drying and styling room.  We offer caring and certified staff, working with professional equipment, to assure your satisfaction and the pets' safety and comfort.  To top off a day at the Spa, how about a relaxing and healthy 10-15 minute session on our Doggie Treadmill to tone up those muscles making exercise and fitness a true Spa experience!

Special Needs Pet Grooming?  Our professionally certified groomers are well equipped to handle all special needs grooming, from your blind, deaf, or pet with disabilities we will be able to provide the grooming services geared just for pets' special needs.

HydroSurge™ Bath Treatment:  Everyone loves a fresh, clean pet!  Every salon bath treatment includes a comb-out of the coat, HydroSurge™ washing and drying. The HydroSurge™ system gently massages your pet's skin while it helps remove deep-down dirt and dander. . We offer room-temperature, in-cage drying with surround air flow in order to make your pet as comfortable as possible.  Our unique system also promotes less shedding than an ordinary bath.  Every bath includes ear cleaning and nail trim.  We use Soap & Detergent Free Products that are safe for your pet and the environment.

Love your pet, hate the shedding?  Try the FURminator SHED-LESS treatment, a new potential for an ancient relationship.  The world of pet lovers - and that's pretty much the entire world, has been waiting for a truly effective, inexpensive, easy-to-use solution to the pet-hair-and-dander problem.

It's an ingeniously simple grooming treatment called the FURminator®  shed-less treatment, centered around a patented new deShedding tool, and it just might change the world - one pet at a time - so pet-lovers everywhere can enjoy their pets to the fullest.

Why may my dog need a shampoo and dry before coming home from a boarding stay?    Boarded pets do not stay as clean as they do at home for several reasons.  Although our staff is vigilant in scooping and cleaning the boarding patios, dogs may soil their feet and coat. Longer coated breeds will become more soiled than shorter coats but to ensure a happy and sweet smelling homecoming we provide a very nominally charged shampoo & dry prior to going home.
