Wow! I am impressed. I have never allowed someone else to groom my dog. I did it myself until I had a mild to moderate stroke last year. Then, I found I could not do it anymore.Angel was a mess! Her hair was "out of control" and her nails were not much better. So, how do you choose a groomer? It is hard! This place does not look like much but I am happy to say that I have found the place that takes care of my dog...forever. There were (3) people out in the open (One guy and two girls) and they were nice. She was in by 10;00 and out by 3:00. Yes, I made an appointment. She had a bath, her nails cut...her ears cleaned and her hair cut. All...for a very reasonable price. This is "My Groomer"!

To the person who said that the groomer hit your dog are u on crack? I know for a fact this has NEVER happend!!!! Teresa is amazing with dogs and she has even taken care of my dog when i had to go out of town I trust her fully!!! She has rescued countless dogs also!!! I have also seen her run in the middle of vinestreet to save a dog running loose to stop the cars from hitting it!! So whoever you are i know for a fact your statement is so not true!!!! I am not sure if u are a groomer in the area and are trying to hurt her business or what but it wont work because anyone who knows Teresa knows this would NEVER happen!!!
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.
