Their happy pup turned out to be traumatized the whole time she was left at the parlour as she was being dumped in a cage to wait her turn. To avoid this kind of traumatic event to happen to their fur baby and other dogs, they decided to launch their own parlour where the best interest and happiness of your fur babies are always a priority.

Pet grooming is the process of cleaning, brushing, and styling a pet's fur, nails, and teeth. It also includes trimming the pet's fur and nails and providing other services such as ear cleaning and teeth brushing.
No, grooming is not painful for dogs if done properly. However, some dogs may experience discomfort if they are not used to the process.
It depends on the breed and type of coat, but generally speaking, most dogs should be groomed at least once a month.
You should not use scissors or clippers on a dog's face, as this can be dangerous. You should also avoid using harsh shampoos or soaps, as these can irritate the dog's skin. Additionally, you should not pull or tug on the dog's fur, as this can cause discomfort and pain.
Please notify us of any violations. This information will be kept confidential and shared only with Wise Move.
