Let’s face it: Taking your beloved pooch to the groomer–or anywhere else where they will be out of your sight for a few hours–can be a little stressful. Especially when that beloved pooch is not what most people would necessarily call well-behaved. And in fact, grooming is such a serious component of your dog’s well-being that choosing a groomer should definitely be a very serious consideration for you.
Although there are certainly a wide variety of options for dog grooming locally, they definitely should not all be considered equal.
After trying many options, it is with great enthusiasm that I have finally found one that meets all the essential criteria.
When I dropped Lady Isabella Cocoa Bean Adams–that name is so ridiculous I had to include all of it–off at Just Pawfection, around the corner from Coleman Square, I immediately noticed the shop was exceedingly clean. The other thing that jumps out is that from the counter you can see absolutely everything that is going on. Dogs and groomers are all in plain sight.
When I expressed uncertainty about how Cocoa would behave, I was assured, with a smile, that I had nothing to worry about. In the less than two hours from the time I dropped her off, until I was called to pick her up, I learned that statement was very true. I had nothing to worry about.
My beautiful pup emerged with a silky coat, smelling like she just came from a spa and sporting a red, white and blue bandanna. And the groomer was hugging her as she turned her over. Truly a find!
If you need your dog groomed, the only thing wrong with this place is that it’s name really should have been Just Perfection because this grooming experience was just perfect. The staff, the service and the price will all have you happy to return. If you don’t believe me, try it.
Just Pawfection is located at 102-18 159th Road, in Howard Beach.
