Bonnie and Shea are a mother and daughter team who strive to give their furry clients a loving, caring, safe and clean environment. The salon's decor is Shabby Chic with Chandeliers in the boutique and over the grooming tables. They understand that a first-time groom can be stressful whether the client is a puppy or first-time customer and provide the time, patience, and positive assurances needed to have a good experience. Calming scents are used to help relax their customers. Shampoos and dips are all-natural and the salon maintains an extensive variety of shampoos to treat most all skin conditions. The bathing tubs have ramps for ease of both the groomer's backs and the pets ability to enter the tub. The drying process includes "Happy Hoodies" which helps to muffle the sound of the force air dyer and prevents air from blowing into the ears, thus creating a less stressful, safe experience for the client. The clipping utilizes the MDC Romani Clipper Vac system. This system helps to keep the salon environment clean of floating fur that could be breathed in and keeps the pet from incurring "clipper burn" from hot blades. Senior or injured clients have access to a support system that will help support them whether they have hip problems, arthritis, or tire easily during the grooming process.
The Boutique maintains many of the shampoos, grooming tools, and products used by the salon for retail sale. The Boutique also carries a variety of harnesses, collars, leashes, food bowls, treats, dental products, health products, toys, one-of-a-kind dog beds, gift items, and more.
