Grooming Salon

We open at 8:00. 

Our goal is for your canine companion to receive the best haircut or ‘look' while being groomed in a relaxed  environment. We use aromatherapy so your dog will feel like he or she is at a doggie spa, not just a  grooming shop.  Our staff is highly experienced in handling dogs with behavior issues. The salon opens at 8:00. You can text to 336 953-7632, call 336 328-0077 or email thedogschool@northstate.net for your dog's salon appointment with our dog groomer, Melissa. We groom Tuesday through Saturday.  We will call you as soon as your dog is ready to go home. We are open on Saturdays until 4:00 for those that cannot pick up until after work.
