A Dog's Day Of Beauty
I think it's pretty sad, that you will allow anyone to post anything without verification of the truth. Or who the person is! ruthylover doesn't have a clue as to what she is talking about. The groomer she is referring to left A Dog's Day of Beauty in 2011, because she moved out of the state. The other groomers that work there were working when it was located on Holabird Avenue and they are all good and patient. This lady lives on the same street and her high strung dog knew the area and being a big dog jumped the gate in the shop and was able to jump against the door and push it open. The groomers RAN after him in order to save him from being hit by a car. We were not aware at the time that the owner lived on the corner next to our shop. The owner should explain how nervous her dog is and that it always takes at least 3 people from her house to walk the dog anywhere. He pulls his head out of his collar all the time. When the shop was on holabird avenue the groomers had to come out and slip a better leash on him to help get him into the shop. One time the dog went into what Linda referred to as the crocodile roll and he seriously injured her hand! yes the dog escaped from the shop but the groomers did run after and catch up with him. If they grabbed at him quickly it was for his protection and since he is skiddish I am not surprised that her passed some urine. The dog was fine and luckily he was not hit by a car!!!!

A Dog's Day Of Beauty
I've been taking my dogs to A Dog's Day of Beauty for many years. I've always found them to be professional, kind and caring to all of my pets.
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.
