Aimee's been our groomer for the past 4 years. Our dogs always look fabulous & are so excited to see her every time. She and I developed a close friendship & I'm thrilled to be working with her here at Fur'st Love Pet Spa!In response to the review regarding the front desk person, that would be me, and yes, I WAS overwhelmed and "all over the place"! ;) In my defense, though, it was a VERY busy day! We had recently celebrated the grand opening, and I was still learning the answers to the various questions that would come up... the only experience I had with dogs was with my own. I did have to ask Aimee for help with grooming questions quite a bit, especially regarding a price for this particular customer's request to dye her dog like a panda bear! I'm much more prepared to answer a wide variety of grooming questions; however, patience is the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) and is always welcome and appreciated.

Grooming Palace
I prefer to bring my dogs to get groomed where they can also enjoy a fun day – this is definitely the place for that in Chesapeake! My dogs can run around and play, get groomed, and then play some more! As a result, they really look forward to a day at the groomer’s! The Grooming Palace provides a safe, clean, fun atmosphere and the groomer, Lindsey, truly treats your dogs as if they were her own! The haircuts are also top-notch (I have a Scottie and Westie). You can also drop them off just for a day of playing, which is good if you have a busy human-day ahead of you! Very affordable prices for both grooming as well as doggie daycare. Highly recommend!

Brought two of my dogs for grooming this past week. Daphne did a fantastic job with them! The cut was great and she was very friendly. Dogs were very calm and happy! Very clean environment as well! Only negative is the front desk person seems to be overwhelmed so you have to be extremely patient as she is all over the place and has to talk to the owner about EVERYTHING! So pack your patience for her. Other than that the place is great!

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.
