A Green Dog Grooming
Last week my husband noticed the pet spa on his way home from my son's house. He stopped in and talked to the owners and was impressed. My husband took my 2 golden retreivers in this morning to be groomed. Our previous groomer had retired and so we were trying to keep up the grooming ourselves which did not work out so well. They were pretty scruffy and a bit smelly when we took them in. I didn't know how they would react with going to a new place because they are at home together a lot and can get kind of crazy when we take them out or separate them. They did a wonderful job grooming them. The dogs have never looked or smelled so good and they came home with the cutest pink bandanas. I would highly recommend this business and will be telling others about it. We are officially retiring from the groom your own dog business and will be bringing them back on a regular basis.Mari in Oak Creek

Considering the negative review below (granted, it is 4 years old), I have no recollection of anyone making any claims that their dog couldn't swallow, needed to go to a vet, etc. I don't recall anything of the sort being brought to my attention, which is a shame because we cover vet bills if something happened on our watch. In regards to the puppy's coat condition, there is a very good chance that the dog was brought to us in very poor condition/matted and seeing that we groom many dogs of this type, an explanation of how it got that way was probably offered. We take reviews seriously, but when they show up online and are never brought to our attention in person, it's very hard to rectify a situation.

Love this place, am very picky on where I take my dog to get her hair cut, other places have done such a bad job, this has been the only place that I was able to cut her hair the way I like it, so I'll be going there from now on

Good job on our Cockapoo. They did a very nice job on grooming our Cockapoo and at a reasonable cost. Would use again. Thanks.
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.
