Pampered Paws Pet Resort & Salon
I love the girls at Pampered Paws. They actually love their jobs and the pets that come in. My two dogs can't wait to get in the door and into playcare. When I've had to board them, they are always bright eyed and bushy tailed when I pick them up and they never smell like they've stayed in a kennel. The place is clean and smells wonderful when you walk in and the girls greet your pet by name. Grooming is fantastic, my girls always look, feel and smell amazing. Their ears are always clean amd their nails are always short and rounded. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Pampered Paws takes perfect care of my two little Pomeranian's. I searched all over Springfield for adequate grooming services, and I always found my baby to come home with a botch job, new scab, or poorly done groom. One even sent home fleas! Pampered Paws is the cleanest, nicest facility in the city, and I have yet to find staff that love my babies as much as me, but they come very close! I would recommend Pampered Paws to anyone for their reasonable prices, great grooming and care, clean facilities, and fantastic staff!

Tender Care Grooming
I took my 17 yr Schipperke to be bathed a clipped short for summer. I was so worried. The poor boy can barely see or hear. I shudder at the thought of him being treated harshly or rough or like a thing without feelings. I am so happy I brought him to Tender Care. He looks great and he acts like he feels a lot better. He is difficult to shave but she did a wonderful job and even clipped so nice around his face. I recommend Tender Care 100%. They seem to genuinely care about our pets.

Spoiled to the Bone Mobile Pet Grooming Spa
I got this lady's number from a friend of mine. She came to my home and groomed my dogs twice now, and did a wonderful job. She was very friendly and my dogs both loved her and she gave one of the best cuts they have had. Being new to the area, I was very glad to find this service. She had a van and did all of the grooming in the driveway. No complaints here - I wish all groomers would care about the dogs like she does.

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.
