Fluff N' Cuts
Hi Nikki, I want to thank you for grooming my very bad matted & long haired dogs Saturday. I think you did a GREAT job. The people that took my Shih Tzu loved her & I think she was beautiful. I would have wanted her hair shorter because she stays outside at my house, but these people are keeping her inside & they loved it. My Poodle has NEVER looked prettier. I have had her done 3 times professionally, but you did the best!! I hope you will be able to do her again when she needs it. I can't stress enough how much I really like her hair cut!!!! Thanks again

Barks & Bubbles Salon & Spa
I took my Pom to this salon for his first visit. I was skeptical because of the last groomer I took him to wasn't very good. I was so pleased with the staff and the facility. They did exactly what I wanted. They let some of the dogs play together rather than putting them in crates and all of the dogs seem to be happy. I will definitely be back!

Sarah's Pet Spa
Sarah is absolutely awesome! As soon as we mention to our Yorkie, Miley, that it's time to go see Ms. Sarah, she gets really excited. We constantly get comments on how cute she looks and what a great haircut she has. Sarah is very professional and fees are very reasonable. She is truly dedicated to pampering and loving Miley.

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.
