"We take our two dogs here every two weeks. They are very friendly and good to deal with. They go the extra mile. When I had surgery, they volunteered to come out" to pick up the dogs, groom them, and bring them back.

"They’re very good and very reasonably priced. They carry brands of medicine that actually work and are reasonably priced as well. We went with them initially" because we had a flea problem a few years ago and brought our pets in for a grooming/flea dip. They kept the pets there all day, which allowed Terminex to spray the entire house down. They also gave the pets a check-up. It was very convenient for us. They're also able to get us in very quickly for appointments, too.

Animal Grooming

Animal grooming is a regular part of pet ownership that you should budget for before adopting a pet. You can do this yourself at home or hire professional animal groomers in your area with storefront locations or mobile grooming services. Groomers typically base their fees on the breed, hair length and size of your pet. Mobile services may cost more, but take less time.

was wonderful! She showed up even though she had 4 inches of snow at her house. She groomed my dog in a little over an hour and did a beautiful job! I am very pleased with her work and will definitely use her again.

Awesome service!
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
came to our home to groom our two Australian Shepherds. Took about 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes per dog. They came out looking great! Super soft, fur was trimmed beautifully, nails were clipped/filed down, ears were cleaned, teeth were cleaned. They also got blueberry facials and a whitening treatment on their fur. It couldn't have gone better!

My dogs have been here three times without any issues. In Ohio we had the same groomer for over two years and I stayed during the services and know how my dogs react to the services. They do get anxious and sometimes will move around during the process. Two times my dogs accidentally got nicked but the groomer was completely honest about it. He cleaned the cuts and had me put neosporin on them. Yesterday my boyfriend picked up my dog. He had two cuts on his nose. He was told that my dog did this to himself with his dew claws. The cuts look like scissor cuts and there are two of them so I am having a hard time believing he did this to himself. I am not mad about the cuts. I am mad because I'm pretty sure that my boyfriend was lied to about how the cuts happened. We will not be going back.

and her staff are amazing! We have two 7 year old small dogs and have taken them to countless groomers over the years-in West County and beyond. Our Yorkie has always been a ball of anxiety and so we've always had trouble finding anyone who could groom him, trim his nails, and/or just keep him settled during a grooming visit. Thank goodness we found

-she and her staff are the best! She has great knowledge and expertise in her field, cares a lot for pets, and keeps prices affordable (cheaper than any other place we have visited in West Co.). Our Yorkie has completely changed in temperament since we have been using her services and she really adds the extra effort to make sure he's calm, but also that she gets the job done. we've followed

and couldn't be happier. She knows what pets and good business are all about, and now that she started this independent, small business, we hope to never change groomers again. We highly recommend

San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and began to get to know my dog. It was his first time being groomed by her and he doesn't care for baths. She was patient and gentle with him and gave him her full attention. She did a great job of washing and cutting him. I was extremely pleased! The cost was fine. She pulled into my driveway and in two hours my little man was handsome, smelling good and back in his bed. We plan to be a regular!

The Groomer was very nice. Our dog looked nice. Fur was not totally dried, which

in Dallas several years ago & never paid a seperate travel charge. I do not mind paying for services that are provided . But, all service providers should inform customers upfront about any extra charges, including travel expenses.

I took my cat there for fast (if sloppy)
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
cuts for my elderly cat. This visit was my last. My cat had lost weight due to a thyroid condition (which has since been treated). The groomer and her horrible, snarky assistant both gave me a hard time about my cat's weight. The assistant was particularly mean about it. My cat is a beloved family member, and the unsolicited opinions were uncalled for.
