I have always enjoyed making dogs resemble their specific breed (when they are a specific breed) and making them look and feel better, (even when they are from mixed pedigrees) so that they enjoy their day at the spa. We enjoy helping make them all feel, and look like Champion show dogs!

No. All pricing is an estimate until the dog is physically seen in person. There are many variables, such as size, condition (the last time it was groomed/ bathed/ brushed) and even the temperament all are factors to consider for pricing. To discuss pricing for your dog(s):  Please do call the shop during regular business hours , Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30am-5pm, and Saturdays from 9am-10am, at 1-(214)-946-6055. Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to serving your canine's needs!


How did you get started in this business?

Greg Reyna grew up particpating in high school rodeos and dreamed of being a horse handler. But due to a sudden  allergy to horses, the world of professional dog shows opened up an alternative way to work with and enjoy his love of animals. Combining his artistic talents and fervent love for animals, professional grooming became an obvious career path.


What types of customers have you worked with?

We have a wide range of clientele. All nationalities, creeds, and beliefs, and what unites them all, is our love of canines.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Winning the Giant Schnauzer Club of America's National Specialty Dog Show, with a dog of my own breeding-which means that my dog was selected above all others that had entered to be judged from both Canada and America! What a terrific honor! 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Always ask about the experience and knowledge of the groomer. Most often, the addage: you get what you pay for, applies. And never hire someone who does not put the safety of all dogs first. If a dog shows up, in an especially horrible condition, i.e. matted, covered in fleas and ticks, bruises, cuts, burns, marks and bald areas from being restrained or chained down, underweight, overweight, showing worms, etc... Your groomer should be alarmed and make sure to speak directly to their owners about the severe conditions that are seen.  Dematting can sometimes be dangerous to a dog, in regards of thinness of skin and risks of cutting or tearing...Dreadlocks cannot be undone or unravelled.  God doesn't groom dogs and Groomers don't do miracles. Although some of our before and after photos might make you think otherwise!


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

How often do I want to groom my dog? Do I need a low maintenance style or do I want a correct trim for my breed- even if it means extra care at home by myself, and more frequent visit? What is the current season and weatherwise, how do I want my dog to be comfortable? Is my dog a smaller or compact breed that needs assistance in regularly releasing its anal glands? Does my dog receive outdoor activities that include walking on cement or other abrasive surfaces that can file its nails or do I need to have them filed by a groomer?  How fast do its nails grow? How much maintenance do I want to perform on my own (homework)? Is my dog shy and scared of groomers? What is my dog's age and needs?  Does my dog require sedative or tranquilizers due to its temperament or upbringing?
