Maria washed my big scaredy-cat of a dog Bernard the other day and everyone is still talking about how good he smells and looks. She even pointed out an issue with his nail on his back paw that I would’ve never seen. Thanks for taking care of that big Ol baby!

They did a wonderful job on our Husky. The staff is friendly and they post a photo of your finished pet in front of a seasonal background.
