I had emergency surgery just days prior to using Special Expressions. Wally, my 6 month old hound / pit mix wouldn't leave my side, but was pretty ripe and itchy. I called Jeri up last minute as a new client and was pleasantly surprised that she would be able to take him same day. She was professional and very good with it being Wally's first bath. I highly recommend her and will be using her again.

Wow! is all I can say we called to have our dogs nails done and the owner was nice enough to stay open for us to get there and she cut them close which our other place didn't do and fast. Owner is very polite and patient our dog doesn't like her paws touched. Overall 5 star will be taking our dog to Spanish Springs grooming salon from now on

I had problems with my dog not liking to be crated during grooming, but the groomers at Spanish Springs grooming were able to work around that for us. They do a great job for less than I was paying at a pet store chain. Highly recommend them.

Love them! Tiffany is great and takes great care of my teacup shih tzu. They always work with my schedule and my fur baby looks beautiful when I pick her up.

Took my retreiver mix and it was 4 hours and they did a great job. I would go back. She was really clean and fluffy and they did a great job on the trim.

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.
