COVID-19 Update February 2021:
I am still not accepting new clients because of COVID. Although is seems that light is at the end of the tunnel, at the very least spring will arrive eventually, and outdoor grooming will resume for the foreseeable future.
However, I invite you to leave your name and contact information so that I can plan ahead and see your pet as soon as possible.
It might be a while before I can see your pet, but I have prepared a page for you to help keeping up with grooming needs: Grooming Tips and Products
I do believe we will get through all of this, and I appreciate your patience and trust. I can't wait to see old and new furry friends soon. 'Till then be well and stay safe!
While I provide house-call grooming services for pets of all ages, I have a soft spot for senior pets. I see wisdom in their eyes, and there is a gentle calmness about them. Working with senior pets is my passion, not only as a groomer, but in all aspects of their health and well being.
My main priority is the comfort of the animal, providing gentle home grooming sessions. I do not put an older dog in the bathtub. I don't force a pet to do anything, and I respect their physical and emotional limitations.
I use gentle tools, cleaners, and conditioners for coat care.
As our pets age, their aches and pains can make a trip to the groomer painful and unpleasant. I give those pets the grooming they need while eliminating stress and pain. No grooming on the table, no baths, only gentle handling and care. Of course I use the same approach on all pets I see, their comfort is my priority.
My grooming sessions happen in your pets home, where they get one-on-one attention.

"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.
