Fetching Ridge is a natural grooming salon. All of our grooming products are biodegradable and made with natural ingredients that are safe for even puppies and kittens. We are locally owned and we are home to the ONLY certified groomers in the High Country. Our gentle and caring staff aims to please, and your pet's safety and comfort is our ultimate priority. We do not have any breed restrictions--we groom all breeds of dogs and cats.



Did you know....?

The pet grooming industry, unlike the human cosmetology industry, is not regulated in North Carolina by any laws or education requirements. That's why our groomers go above and beyond and engage in rigorous third-party certification. This involves months of study, in-depth written exams, and timed practical exams where the groomer must execute breed-appropriate clips in front of industry experts. We are proud to say that all of our groomers are either certified by the NDGAA and/or have been trained by NDGAA certified groomers!


Basic Bath & Brush

Don't want to put Spot in the bathtub at home? We will trim your dog's nails, clean his ears, then bathe, blow dry, and brush him to perfection. It'll make you never want to do it yourself again! If you have an exceptionally hairy dog, ask about adding our Shed Relief service. 

Bath and Tidy Groom

Do you have a dog who gets groomed regularly and needs to be neatened up in between haircuts? Or do you have a golden retriever or husky with just a little too much hair on the chest and rear? The tidy groom is what you need! The tidy groom includes everything in the Basic Bath & Brush PLUS a face, feet, and sanitary trim OR a light outline trim.

Bath and All-Over Haircut

This is "the works"--Bella gets everything in the Bath and Tidy PLUS an all-over haircut. If you want length taken off your whole pup, whether it's a trim up or a shave down, this is the service for you.

Our grooming services are available by phone appointment only. Because of variations in coat condition, pet size, pet temperament, and individual needs, we can only give estimates on pricing.

Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to your appointment. Reminder messages will be sent via email 48 hours prior to your appointment. Cancellations made after the 24 hour period will result in a cancellation fee of 1/2 your projected grooming fee. Please be aware that if you are more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, you will be deemed a "no show" and will be charged a cancellation fee.
