Applause Four Paws
I have an edgy standard poodle mix. He blew through 2 groomers in as many years. Finally, I contacted a long standing local pet shop. They recommended Emily at Applause four Paws. He went there for monthly baths and caused no problems until the clippers and scissors appeared, the so did an entirely different personality. Meanwhile, he had to go to the vets where he was anethesized,,not sedated, while a tech tried to clip him. Emily kept working to gain his trust, and a couple of months ago I went to pick him up and Wonder of Wonders, there he stood, clipped, no sedation, no anesthesia. Thank you Emily and Aaron for you love and patience.

Uncle Dave's Mobile Dog Groom
He was very nice, however I would not use him again. I have a large sweet dog that is afraid of buzzing clippers. Since he is a one man show, he insisted I help hold down my dog while he shaved him. He then charged me full price when he was done. If I was going to do 50% of his job, it should have been half off! He either needs an assistant, or should reconsider his prices. Next time I will drop off my dog at a groomers where I don't have to help do half the work!!!
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.
