I have been seeing this place & finally decided to try them. I was given an appt within 48hrs of my calling. I brought my yorkie in and to my surprise there were several yorkies arriving at the same time. He went to the owner, Dia like he already knew her. She promised that she would take care of him & boy did she deliver! KoKo finally got a yorkie cut. He hates being groomed, but he let her. I am so pleased! She promised that she would be his only groomer. Koko has been strutting around all evening. Thx Dia & we will see you in 2 wks.

As the owner of Perfect Paws, I was perplexed to see this review. Unfortunately, I was never made aware that anyone's pet was injured at my salon. Accidents do happen, and if they do its our policy to inform the client and proper action is taken. I was never informed by any of my groomers or any client, before or after the fact, of this incident. Please read the rest of our 5 star reviews. 80% of our clients have come to us as referrals.

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.
