A Cut Above
I would disagree greatly with Rayyona. Im a breeder handler of English Cockers. Due to poor vision I no longer groom my own animals. I have tried many groomers looking for someone who was familar with this breed. I was very happy to speak with Lynn and felt very comfortable trying her. I was very suprised when I picked my first dog up. She was done exactly as I had asked. It was worth the wait to have it done properly, and I personally know how difficult and time consuming it is to finish a dog this well. Apparently she has groomed for show i the past. Lucky me! I felt and do feel very comfortable leaving my precious babies at A Cut Above. The ladies very very nice, all of them. As I stated earlier I have tried several groomers and found this one to be by far the cleanest and most professional. Its a beautiful shop. You can tell thy take pride in what they do. Its privately owned and not a big franchises and that appeals to me. There is a more personal touch and vested interest when you own your own business I believe. See for yourself thats all I can say. I give credit where credit is due. Thanks and love you girls.

For my High Desert friends. If you have pet grooming needs please consider Lynn the owner of A Cut Above on Mojave. They will be relocating to 7th St. My beloved friend and Cat Reno's tooth was sticking out. I tried to feel it but he would not let me. I took him to a Vet consult which was 15.00, had to pay @5.00 for labs and than they wee going to schedule surgery which was another minimum of $195.00. When the tech touched hiss tooth I saw it was just flipping around and than the Dr examined him and said he needs surgery. He would have to be put under Anesthesia. When I came home I tried to grab tooth but he would not let me. Today I decided to go talk to a groomer I had used once before. Shee told me to bring him in, It took her literally 2 seconds and it was out with no pain or bleeding. She would not even except money from me. That is all the unethical Vet would have had to do. So next time your pet can use some clean loving please consider Lynn. 760/241-2299. Reno and I are so greatful to you. Love your new friends, Reno and Deborah. :)

I've been taking my 3 little terriers to A Cut Above for about 3 years and I would never consider going anywhere else. I never worry about their well being while they're in the care of the groomers because I know that they're safe and in the hands of true professionals. The groomers there take their time with my pets and my dogs are always groomed exactly as I specified. I will be a loyal customer for as long as I own dogs-- and that means for life!!!

They did so i went to get them. Now all my dogs are clean and happy as I. This will be my new grooming place now. Thank you for everything.. Gloria Hankins

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.
