A Tender Touch Grooming
I love Tender Touch! What an awesome Owner and staff. They always take great care of my Shorkie. He always looks and smells so great when I go to pick him up. I have been going to "Aunt Kathy's" as I call it to Gizmo on the day he gets his fur cut and would go no place else! I moved to north Tampa 9 months ago and it is absolutely worth the drive!

My beagle loves going to Tender Touch. She hates getting a bath and having her nails clipped but she loves it when they groom her. Sherlock always comes out looking great and I know she likes going there - she gets very excited when she walks in. It's great to find a place that you feel your pet is safe and they love going to.

Love Love Love this place !!! But MOST Important, my Bowsers LOVES this place. They do such a nice job of making my Pup look his BEST. I've been to two other Groomer Businesses in Dunedin and have never received the personalized care that we get here. Thumbs down to the others. Tender Touch Grooming is a SUPER clean environment, and GREAT Owner and Staff !!! I can never THANK them enough for keeping my Bowsers looking his BEST. My Bowsers will always be getting his "Groom" on at A Tender Touch Dog Grooming because they are the BEST !!!

I have 2 Afghan Hounds who are a "grooming challenge". Kathy and her groomers do an amazing job on both dogs, they listen to how we want them groomed, they offer advice and we are alway always pleased with how they look when we pick them up. We've been going there for years. As the dogs have aged, Kathy makes every effort to schedule them early so as to minimize the time they have to stand to be groomed. Tender Touch is the BEST!

Phoebe is always making new friends when she goes to see Kathy. i like how she gets to run around and play all day instead of being stuck in a crate. They are all fast and friendly here and the shop is beautiful,bright,and cheery. Pheobe is always looking her cutest when she's done, and she never wants to leave!
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
