Southern Styles Pet Salon
Allison and her team at Southern Styles Pet Salon in Hendersonville is absolutely amazing. I have tried numerous pet salons and Southern Styles is by far the best. We have actually moved away from the Hendersonville area, but travel 45 minutes just to bring our dog to her. She keeps her salon very clean and everyone is always friendly. They love and treat my dog just as their own. I have very high standards when it comes to a pet salon and Southern Styles has met everyone one of them.

Grooming By Dawn
Both of my dogs get excited when I pull up to Dawns place. They rush inside with their tails wagging and patiently wait while Daen trims and files their nails. My dogs intuitively know when people and situations are good and when they are not. Highest praises to Dawn and her grooming services - from me and all my furry family ad well! You can definitely trust your pets with her. First class!!!

Southern Style Pet Salon is AWESOME! I have 2 miniature schnauzers and they are a handful. We have tried other salons in the area and this is the BEST. Allison always has the shop clean and she is always willing to listen to any concerns that I have regarding my puppies. Hendersonville is lucky to have such a loving and caring business owner!

Grooming By Dawn
My three little dogs had a wonderful experience with Dawn. She did a great job, and they were calm and happy there. At the previous groomers place they were ready to go, especially my shy girl, but she wanted to stay at Dawn's shop! I'm sold!

Grooming By Dawn
LOVE DAWN! She has been grooming all of our animals since I can remember! They always look great and my dog who hates people is SO good for her! I drive almost 2 hours just to get my dog groomed by her because I don't want anyone else!!

They have always done a wonderful job on my sheltie. My sheltie hurt her knee several years back and they take extra special care of her to make her comfortable.
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.
