So you have got yourself a nice furry friend and I am sure he is the most adorable pet that anyone can have.
Needless to say, you want your pooch to be looking and feeling the best always and the good news is: you dont need deep pockets to achieve this. While most grooming salons tag prices such as $2.00-$8.00 for added services, OURS DOES NOT! With our grooming prices, EVERYTHING IS INCLUDED...BUT, THE KITCHEN SINK! Prices range from $35.00 & up.

Incidentally, most dog owners dont realize; that all it takes to turn your neighbors green with envy when you take your pooch for a stroll; is regular grooming. How do you make your dog look Bright & Radiantly Healthy? Clean his face, teeth, ears, eyes and nails.
Here are the 3 basic steps to clean your dogs face.
Gently wash the skin around the eyes using a fresh piece of moistened cotton or make-up remover pad for each one. If you notice any discharge or inflammation, contact a vet for advice.
Hold open the ear with one hand and gently clean inside the flap with a small piece of moistened cotton or a make-up remover pad. Use a fresh piece for each ear. Do not probe too deeply into the ear canal. There are great ear cleaners out on the market, simply follow the directions when introducing it into your dogs ear canals.
Loose facial skin must be cleaned regularly with damp cotton. This prevents dirt, dead skin, and bacteria from collecting in the folds and causing irritation and infection.
Are You at a Loss trying to Get Rid of that Doggy Smell?
Its every dog owners dream to have a pooch that smells nice. That when he enters the house after a long day at work, he is not greeted by that oh!-so-familiar doggy smell. That when he has people over hes not embarrassed to let them pet and hug his furry friend!
What you must know is, there are natural dog odors and unnatural dog odors. Therefore, in order to deal with odor you must identify which one it is, as this would help you to control them or eliminate them as the case may be.
Natural dog odors are most prominent near the anus, near the ears and form the footpads. Also, dog produce secretions to identify themselves to other animals. Although, these odors cannot be altogether eliminated, they can nevertheless be controlled. Sources of unnatural dog odors include: dogs coat (which has not been regularly cleaned ), skin diseases , ear disease, dental disease or mouth ulcers and flatulence. It is possible to get rid of these odors completely after you treat the problem.
Does Your Dog Shed too much?
Imagine this: you have some friends over and you cant offer them a single sofa chair to sit. Why? Because all the sofa chairs are full of your dogs shedding!! Its no wonder; therefore, the one thing that drives most dog owners mad is shedding. By the way, I offer complete shave-downs for your dog. This eliminates the shedding during seasonal changes.

Dog owners often make a mistake when it comes to normal shedding and excessive shedding. They often misunderstand the two and as a result the dog suffers.
Normally most breeds will shed seasonally. And you shouldnt make any effort to thwart the process.
Many dog breeds possess a double coat which is nothing but two layers of coat called a topcoat (long "guard hairs") and an undercoat (a layer of thick, downy fuzz next to their skin under the guard hairs). The undercoat acts as an insulator and grows thick during winters so that they shed and be discarded during spring and summer.
Generally the male dogs only shed heavily in spring and summer. But the females frequently shed at the time of their estrus or heat cycle also. However, the males have splendid and better quality coats than their female counterparts.
We cater to one animal at a time in our salon, this means increased time spent with your dog with plenty of detailed attention. We have been running our business out of our home since 1992, so don't be surprised when you pull-up to our driveway. We look forward to helping you with your grooming, boarding and Yorkshire Terrier Puppy selections soon!
I kinda stumbled on Sharon by accident, going through the same routine as every- one else - going to the big chain stores and getting ripped off. Sharon is kind, considerate and knowledgeable. Her prices are very reasonable and I am more than satisfied with the quality as well.

After going to Petsmart and wags n paws for years, I was tired of the hustle and bustle of the so called "dog giants" shuffling the dogs in and out and hearing all the horror stories and complaints people had and also my own complaints to these companies. The final straw for me going to these "giants", was the story I heard of them leaving a dog in the cage to dry and the dog died of being overheated. Then I knew it was time for me to find a small outfit that cared more then just grooming the dogs for the almighty dollar. I decided to go on line and type "groomers" and Sharons website popped-up. I thought should I go to another Petsmart or just try a smaller place. But, I knew it was time. Time to go with a little personal touch! I called her up to set up an appointment, just to check it out. Sharon does this out of her home and only allowed one dog at a time. She has such a great place, I just had to stay. Sharon had a few dogs, and just sitting there talking to Sharon, she seemed to know everything possible and imagineable about grooming, boarding and breeding. I was impressed, so I allowed Sharon to groom my 3 dogs, Cane, Konan and Lady! Go see her, you will be impressed!

Wow, I walked out paying half of what I normally do at Petsmart. Thanks Sharon, now with the economy, every penny helps! Plus, my dogs never looked so good. I have a maltese and a havanese, she really knows how to work with long haired dogs!
