About Us


Specializing in pets with anxiety.

My name is Barbara and I have been grooming (with a pause or two in between) since 1989. Pets are my passion. I take the time needed to ensure a calm, and stress free grooming experience. My belief is quality not quantity. Promoting health and wellness with your pet throughout the grooming experience is my expertise. Your furbaby will enjoy their brief stay and go home happy, clean, beautiful and feeling great! 


Services Provided


Because all dogs are different, our pricing is based on size, breed and level of grooming needed.

 There are many variables in pet grooming, such as whether your pet has long or short hair and also if the hair is matted and tangled. Factors which determine the price of a service include amount of scissor work, degree of matting, difficulty of the cut, disposition of the animal, drying time, length of hair and mainly size of pet. We will be happy to quote you a price range over the phone, and we invite your inquiries. 

 Our full-service dog grooming includes bathing, cleaning of the ears (plucking if necessary), nail trim, blow dry, brush out, sanitary-area clean up, trimming and hair cut. Odoroma Therapy is also available!

Cats: Long Hair: Begins at $65.00 
Short Hair: Begins at $50.00 
(includes bath, blow dry, ear cleaning and nails)

Extra services:

 Nails Dremeled: $15.00

Anal Glands: $10.00 
Flea Baths: $20.00 (in addition to grooming service)


Policies & Procedures

For grooming services, please book a minimum of 1-2 weeks in advance. There is a 24-hour cancelation policy and first-time clients may be asked for a deposit to hold their appointment.

All pets must be on a leash or in a carrier.  Dogs and cats MUST be up-to-date on their Rabies vaccination. On your first appointment you must bring a copy of Rabies Certificate. We recommend that if your pet has fleas, that you contact your veterinarian before scheduling an appointment.
