I'm so glad to have found Pawsmahal! I've always been able to take my dog to be groomed but due to medical problems, I'm no longer able to *get up and go* like I'm used to doing. It was so good for both me and my dog to be so close to each other with no other dogs around. She was in their van in the driveway so all the regular occuring outside sounds were a comfort to her I'm sure. She was much more relaxed when Ken brought her back into the house than when I'd finally get to pick her up at the groomers. Betsy was so nice and both Brandi (my cockapoo) and I adore Ken, the groomer! Oh, they also do cats which is so nice to know - I have an older *lady* that can't clean her fur as she used to and sometimes needs a lion's cut to give her a break. I highly recommend Pawsmahal to anyone who has a dog that needs regular, professional care!
