Also, they are kept away in a private room during the entire session, therefore, you will most likely never notice nor come in contact with them. That being said, we cannot guarantee that you will NOT come in contact with pet hair. Even after clean-up and limiting the areas our pets have access to, pet hair tends to move around without noticing. Therefore, if you have severe allergies to pet hair, we highly recommend you do not book our services.
