Barking Beauty Pet Salon
This is the best pet salon I have ever been to. The atmosphere is bright and cheery. The workers are professional, knowledgeable, have a passion for animals, and handle dogs and cats with the utmost care. Anyone needing a groomer, I would highly recommend bringing your pet here- as the results will be excellent for you, as well as your pet.

Our dog had gotten quite matted playing in the snow this winter. Jenny and Lorien had her clean, soft, shaved and de-matted in no time! The shop was clean and everyone was friendly. The location (near Celebration South) was also ideal for us! Thanks Dirty Hairys, we'll definitely be back!

I have been to several dog grooming places and this is by far the best. It is clean, the staff is friendly and professional, and best of all they gave our pup the best cut he has ever had. I will definitely be taking him back and recommending Dirty Hairy's to all of my friends.

The groomers at Dirty Hairy's are awesome! My little Max was made to feel right at home the second we walked in the door. When I came to pick him up he was happy and SO handsome! I'd recommend these talented ladies to anyone who wants quality care for their dog!

Clean Cut Critters
Fantastic groomer. My guinea pig had his nails done there today and she was very professional and stopped when he was starting to look agitated. I recommend Clean Cut Critters.

I was so glad to re-connect with Jenny. Our 'girls' hate grooming but love Jenny. They always get a great cut and great service.

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.
