I have a big dog who is normally gentle and even tempered unless you touch his feet, or you want him to go in a strange place. Needing a significant nail trim I scheduled with Travis. Getting to the shop, Koda refused to go in the building so, unfazed, Travis came outside to work with him. Travis was calm, gaining Koda's trust and did a beautiful job of clipping his nails - outside in front of the shop. I was so appreciative of the expertise, gentleness and understanding Travis had for my dog that I will be back again in 4 - 6 weeks and I have every confidence Koda will eventually go inside the building!

I recommended my family here and they were SO HAPPY. They have been paying way more at petco and getting half the results! (they have a Yorkie cross) I take ALL of my rescue dogs, my friends dogs (a basenji and a Pembroke corgi), my dogs, I LOVE IT. The corgi was blowing his coat and she was VERY thorough and he hardly lost any hair and smelled amazing for a long time! The owner is WONDERFUL and passionate about animals :) ALL animals! I Would

I took my Shih Tzu and my aging Golden to this facility and was amazed by the love and compassion the owner and her daughter had for my babies. When I picked them up they looked amazing, but better then that they were happy, tails wagging and had been given water and taken out potty! I highly recommend this facility and will return again and again! I should also add the shop is very nice, clean, and I could see the dogs being groomed.

I just had to post after reading the other review. Haley is wonderful. I have been taking my poodle to her for years! She has alway been very accomadating for whatever clip I want. The only time she couldnt do what I wanted was when she was too matted, which I understood because I didnt want it to hurt her. She even showcased my baby on their facebook page! I highly recomend going to her!

I have been taking 2 of my dogs to Dirty Paws since they opened. One I bathe myself and the other Haley grooms for me. My poodle is what you would consider high maintenance and Haley does a beautiful jobs with her. My girl takes great patience and I was initially shocked that Haley was able to do such a great job. But hey, that’s what a professional can do!

I absolutely love this wash and have been going there off and on for about 15 years. The staff is helpful and friendly, going above and beyond to teach me how to properly groom my Cairn and Australian terrier. Cutting equipment sharp and I never leave with out having them trim my dogs nail.. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Great place for your dog. Your dogs have space to hang out, are treated with love and come out looking great. Their prices are the same or better than the big box stores. Our dogs felt much more comfortable at this groomer than anywhere else in the valley.

Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
