Pretty Baby Grooming Palace
My dog looks amazing. I was apprehensive when i read the reviews... I expected some quarks. A couple of things were odd to me but then again i dont know much about dog grooming. I scheduled an appointment by phone for 10:30am and when i arrived i was told to be back at 3:30pm. Seemed like a long time but not really a problem for me at all.My dog is skiddish... She was really comfortable with him regardless or his attitude, she agreed to muzzle if needed but she said hos behavior was great. My dog looks amazing? He smells great, and he is happy. Im happy. Plan on going back again.

Luv & Suds Grooming
I love this place. They don't charge an arm and leg to get my dog groomed and they do a great job. They go by appointments so they ask for a 24 hour cancellation which is okay with me. I understand that they have to have time replace dogs so they don't have to raise my cost. My dog loves coming her too, she wags her tail walking in, never had my dog do that at any of the other places I have gone.
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.
