We use lots of tender loving care and excel with timid or shy pets but reserve the right to refuse a pet that shows signs of aggression towards people.

We do not drug pets and will not groom pets that have been tranquilized.

We are willing to retrain pets to trust us and enjoy their grooming when they have had bad experiences in the past with other people.

Pets visiting our salon get lots of attention and praises.

We can tell that the pet feels better after a complete grooming and we have been told that they sleep well at night and love to come back.

Extra charges will apply to pets that have fleas &/or ticks. Flea and tick shampoos, dips, powders and sprays do not have lasting effects and will not prevent the problem from re-occurring.

When Bugs are a problem we recommend “FRONTLINE” from the Vet for dogs and “ADVANTAGE” for cats.




Pets enjoy the open space we have provided in our grooming room and they seem to enjoy looking at the fish tanks, seeing all the activities and the people watching them through the big windows.

We require that all pets be current on all vaccinations and are in good health.

Pets that have an illness that would threaten the health of other pets are not allowed.

A pet that has matted fur must be dematted first or clipped before it is bathed. We do not just bathe and leave in matts because the matting can cause the pet to develop skin sores.

When a pet is presented for grooming the first time, we will go over with the owners what they desire for their pet. We will not put an animal through a procedure that we feel is unfair to the animal or will be a bad reflection on us.

On returning visits, we welcome requests to make adjustments on the design of a clip previously given to your pet.

Older pets with heart problems that have not been groomed on a regular basis are at risk for a stroke if they get too excited. We will do everything we can to make the grooming process a safe experience but have been known to refuse grooming on a pet we felt was at risk.

Because our grooming room is out front where all our customers come in, we can not allow any skunked pets into our facility. Skunked pets smell worse when the sprayed spot gets wet and the aroma is so strong that it will linger in our facility for days. There are many remedies we have heard about and tried but time seems to be the only 100% cure. We recommend that the owner locate the spot that was sprayed and put Pure Vanilla on it with a sponge.

Our Equipment

We use professional grooming tables, hair clippers, scissors, brushes, combs, matt splitters, undercoat rakes, nail clippers, and dryers. Muzzles are only used when the pet is intent on biting.

The Prima bathing system is used to thoroughly clean the pets’ coat and rinse it clean. It feels similar to a massage jet in a shower.

We have one stand up tub for bathing small pets and one walk in type for dogs too large to lift. Both are equipped with rubber mats to help keep paws from slipping.

We use stand dryers and hand held dryers for fluff drying.

We do not use enclosed cage dryers but use portable dryers with timers that are set up to blow warm air into modular units that have a raised platform installed to allow more air circulation around the pet.

We use rubber mats, white paper and artificial lambs wool for pets to rest on.

All pets are offered water during the day and given breaks as needed. Dogs are offered use of our outside grooming run for potty breaks and the Felines are offered a litter box.


As a rule we stay busy with standing appointments for the year. We recommend calling in advance.


Our Grooming Staff

Kay had to stop grooming in 2002  after an auto accident.

Thankfully, Barbara who had been trained by Kay many years prior to the accident was able to groom at the Pet Tailor facility for many years.

We are now blessed to have a wonderful Pet Stylist, Lora Brumbeloe, who has been with us since May 2008. She is a certified all breed groomer with a big heart. Lora is only available Monday through Friday.
