More about Kathy Santo's Pet A Groom:

We deliver the BEST grooming experience for the animals coming to our shop, and for the students of our dog school.

To accomplish that mission, our commitment to safety means that we:

  • Hire experienced groomers who meet not only their industry standards, but also our own, stringent, Kathy Santo-brand requirements.  
  • We always use only the highest quality hypoallergenic shampoos and conditioners.
  • The bathing, drying, and grooming ALL happen in one large area, that’s visible to the public.
  • The dogs are never left unattended!
  • The trainers at the dog school (located next door to the grooming shop) regularly accompany our student’s dogs to the shop to help them relax during their grooming experience.  
  • We also take our FastTrack dogs there when requested, and do training sessions to teach them how to calmly stand on the table, have their nails done, and allow their body to be handled, even when there’s lots of sounds going on from the clippers and dryers! We like to say that our student’s dogs learn to be the best grooming clients!
