My Best Friends Dog Grooming
Brenda Blake is a certified dog groomer. She has run an outstanding business for over 20 years, and she is so popular that people must book over a year in advance to get appointments with her. Her shop is beautiful, clean, and safe; all dogs are walked regularly and kept in comfortable cages so no dog gets injured. I have taken my own dogs to her for 20 years. Let me also say that Judy, her assistant, is also wonderful with dogs and generous with her time.

My Best Friends Dog Grooming
I have been going to Brenda for five years now and wouldn't take my dog anywhere else. She does such a beautiful job. She has a great, well-lit salon. And it's so clean! Brenda and Judy, who combs and shampoos the dogs, are both just wonderful, friendly people. My dog hates to have his feet groomed, but she has a magical way about her. And she seems very much beloved in the community.
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.
