Recently, I took my 5 month old, Shih Tzu to Mary's.. I didn't like it. I didn't like at all. Only because I loved it. Mary's is not only one of the most caring grooming center in Harrisburg, they also provide great deals. After an awful experience at PetSmart Grooming, I was in search for another groomer. It was $53 + tax (about $9). You might think that's a lot but it includes everything. Bathing, shampoo, blow dry, brushing, dematting, nail trim, ear cleaning, scissoring feet and pad shaving, and even an anal gland cleaning. My pup is looking very sophisticated and clean; perfect for this upcoming summer. The staff is also very sweet and will provide you with all the information you need. I now know to take my pup in every 8 weeks for his trim. We finally found the perfect groomer we were looking for!

Best Dog Groomers in the Harrisburg market. They treated our pooch like he was one of the family. I will not go any where else. Mary is the perfect groomer and boy does he look great.

If you people didn't like the place the first time why did you go back? Seams you are the type of people that just like to bitch about everything.
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.
