The idea is to make your dog grooming experience as calm, and relaxing as possible. Some dogs get very nervous, some jump in the tub happy to be washed. If needed I always give them breakes. When your dog first walk in I like to let them walk around my place and sniff around, desensitizing dogs makes a difference. I have been to a grooming school in Annville PA working with several types of coat and dogs 300+ hours hands on. I also had my business for the past 3 years. During this time , I work on having the AKC salon safety class and diploma. I am also working on start showing my sweet girl Bebel ( soft coated wheaten terrier) I am currently on an obidience class for show. At my salon you will always find a very clean place. Safe and temperature regulated.
I absolutely love what I do, I started just grooming my own dogs than family and friends until it became my profession. I spent some time in school last year to add a professional diploma to my experience, and I plan on taking the master grooming certificate. Although the covid-19 this year I was still able to be part of the grooming show virtually. I also got a certificate in Wheaten Terriers, Blue Kelly and Bedlington Terrier. From AKC I have the salon safety certificate and the Terrier certificate.
A little about me, before becoming a groomer, I attended college for 2 years in nursing school. I love running and cardio exercises. I grew up in São Paulo Brazil I have real aversion to traffic 😜 and people that don't like animals😅
Allie was patient with our new puppy for his first grooming. Not only did she provide an awesome grooming experience and handsome cut, she established a great bond with our timid boy. Thanks Allie!
We received a quick response to our quote request, she got us in within days, very nice, professional and reasonable! We will definitely be taking our Aussie back and reccomend Klean Klaws!!
There is always the initial contact with basic info of the dog, I like to ask about any possible health issues, anxiety. From their we work the details.

I do have standard prices, but clients are always aware that due to certain situations the grooming price will be based on that. A good example dogs as they age they became much harder to groom due to not being able to stand up for a long or any time at all, illnesses that make grooming very challenging, aggressive dogs. Only in this situations prices will be adjusted. And I am dead honest with my clients about what is possible and what's not not. *Dogs safety always come first*
