I am so happy with the service. I had my Toy Poodle Peaches groomed and she's so beautiful. I have been to other groomers and they left her with razor rash. Thank you for your hard work and caring service. So happy to have found my perfect groomers.

My 2 year old Moodle named Jersey had her first proper grooming experience today, and she received the full pooch spa morning. She came home looking and smelling exceptionally beautiful, with an adorable purple ribbon in her hair! The staff are so welcoming, friendly, professional, and eager to fulfill your wishes of how you’d like your pooch to look, and doing an awesome job of pampering your pooch! Jersey and I are definitely now regular clients. Why try somewhere else when you’ve already found the best!

I want to say a big THANK YOU. Marlo had her first summer clip yesterday. She looked so different and wonderful, I still can't stop looking at her. You are a talented team and your customer care is second to none. Thanks!
