We love grooming doodles! The number one request from doodle owners is "Don't make it look like a poodle!" Doodle styles can be as varied as doodles themselves; short functional field cuts, or long and natural. Coiffed or scruffy - and anything in between. We understand how important it is to feel confident and worry free when it comes to the dog groomer you choose. But what really sets our services apart from the rest of the industry is our individualized one-on-one approach and receptiveness to the unique needs of each client.
