Happy Tails Grooming
We have a very large and furry Siberian Husky (Tundra)! We needed him basically shaved on his entire underside and chest, because he had picked up foxtails and they became embedded in and under his skin, and our vet needed us to get him shaved in this manner pre-surgery.He has the sweetest disposition, normally, but we knew that he would become fearful while being clipped, because that is just how he is.With all of this, when we called Happy Tails for the very first time ever, they didn't even hesitate when we asked whether they could handle a very large fearful Husky.The entire staff was very professional, and friendly. Our groomer, Kim, did an excellent job!! I knew we were in good hands the moment we walked in.Tundra had never before been professionally groomed, and I knew he would raise a fuss (and he certainly did!), but Kim and the staff took it all in stride and handled it like professionals.I am very pleased, and I would and WILL recommend Happy Tails to everyone I know.The cost for grooming my very difficult husky was so reasonable!! I expected to pay four times as much!!All I can say is that if they could handle Tundra, and do such an amazing job as they did, they can do a great job on any dog!!My thanks again to Kim, our groomer, and to the entire staff of Happy Tails. :)

Happy Tails Grooming
We took our daschund mix/Heinz 57 house dog who was a shelter rescue pup from Phoenix. This was our first trip to the groomer and consequently our pup was very scared and shook-up. We picked Happy Tails based on a previous customer review praising their gentle & kind treatment of the "clients", and we were not disappointed! Our pup came through this looking and smelling clean and happy. We recommend these guys to any others with nervous/skittish canines!

Happy Tails Grooming
I started taking my "pups" to Jana and the fine gals at Happy Tails years ago. Always a great experience. It is hard to fine such caring people and staff these days. Maybe they all be Blessed, as their lives go on. I will surly miss them all, as will as my fur-kids, when they bid us all "Happy Trails". I am just heart broken they are closing, but wishing them the best. God Bless!!~~~

Carla's Dog Grooming
I knew from the moment she held my yorkie-poo and he nestled in her arms that she was the groomer for him. She has a calming effect on Thunder and he is glad to see her when he is groomed. Carla is gentle, patient, and kind. I wouldn't use anyone else for this most important part of my dog's experiences. Great Job Carla and Thank You. Linda Stodghill
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.
