Are your pets hiding when it is time for bathing and grooming?
Just like in humans, pet hygiene is important for overall well being and health. Unkempt, dirty, shaggy fur is a breeding ground for all sorts of parasites and potentially harmful organisms, like fleas, ticks, germs, bacteria. Some of them are not only harmful to the animal, but also to humans who are in contact with the animal. In particular children are at risk. By keeping your pet regularly groomed, you can prevent a lot of problems and save money on veterinary bills.
Senior Pets: As our pets age, their aches and pains can make a trip to the groomer painful and unpleasant. I give those pets the groom they need while eliminating stress and pain. No grooming on the table, frequent breaks, comfort has priority! Particularly senior pets need more time and attention, more than can be reasonably given in a grooming salon. I enjoy working with mature dogs and cats, giving them the time and comfort they deserve. Many older dogs enjoy a grooming session while resting comfortably and snoozing the time away. Senior cats often find their way into my lap, while I brush them, remove mats and tangles, and clip their nails.
Cats: "Cats groom themselves". Well, what they actually do is putting layer upon layer of saliva on and into their coat. Once it dries off it becomes dander. They also ingest loose and dead hair, which become hairballs inside their stomachs. And their nails, aka "weapons of mass destruction" ruined many pieces of furniture, wall covers, and other household items. Cats need regular brushing and grooming, just like dogs. Short haired cats not as much as long haired breeds, who need a daily brushing to keep the coat mat and tangle free. Once mats start to appear, it is definitely time to take action. Their skin is very thin and sensitive, and mats are quite uncomfortable. Unattended they can become a breeding ground for all sorts of organisms - not anything you like to cuddle with.
My grooming sessions happen in your and your pets home, relieving many pets of grooming associated stress. They get one-on-one attention, I do my best to make the experience for your pet as pleasant as possible.

"We had Dirk Ussler of Fresh & Furry Pet Grooming come to our house to groom one of our dogs who is old and has health issues. Dirk showed up right on time, did a fantastic job and our old "Buddy," usually unhappy about being groomed, was totally fine throughout. We will definitely become "regulars" with Dirk."

EDDIE LOVES DIRK THE MOBILE PET GROOMER
The Sunday Valley News featured an article about Dirk Ussler and his mobile pet grooming service, Fresh & Furry Pet Grooming. Well, I have first hand experience to share! - Read the article.
Dirk is great! He was very gentle with Mandy, our 17 yr. old cat, and did a wonderful job. Highly recommended.

A great experience! Sophie looks good (and clean), smells great and her fur feels wonderfully soft! She's a rescue dog and a bit wary,but Dirk's mellow yet very attentive demeanor worked--she calmly settled down for her brushing and clipping (and what a lot of dirty stuff came off her). And he gave me some good tips along the way. We will gladly welcome Dirk back for a post-mud season visit to get her ready for summer.

I highly recommend Fresh and Furry Pet Grooming. Dirk made my dog feel very comfortable and she kept following him around even after he was done with grooming her.
