Stacy's Pet Salon
Stacy is an outstanding groomer. We have two Miniature Australian Shepard/ Sheltie, and the grooming, nail trim she gives is wonderful. Also when she gives them a bath, what ever type of shampoo she uses. the dogs love and it helps keep them clean, smelling great for a long time. Her prices are very reasonable, and its always a pleasure to bring them there. They even perk up when we mention the Pet Salon,.or better referred to as the Puppy Spa in our house. So if your looking for a groomer who really will care about your pet, give Stacy a try, you won't regret it.

The Silver Birch
I've been coming to The Birch for many years when I vacation from Ohio. It is one of the highlights of my vacation. Never had a good meal her, always been very good or OMG delicious. The chef is very creative and makes great sauces so I always get the special. The owner and staff are always friendly and polite, and the view, well you have to see it to believe it. A true gem of the north woods!

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.
