COVID-19 Update.  

There are two options available now:

1. Grooming services in my grooming studio at 506 West 168th Street.

Grooming is by appointment and features curbside drop off and pick up.  I will meet you outside on the sidewalk or at your car or taxi to take your dog and to return your dog after grooming.  The grooming area will be sanitized between appointments.  I will wear a face mask and ask that you also wear a face mask and practice social distancing as much as possible.

2. Grooming in your home. 

This option depends on location, who is home, and other COVID-19 considerations.  All homes will be considered.


Note to new clients: grooming services are only available for dogs under 30 pounds.
