About Ultimate Dog

Ultimate Dog is a family owned business that began in 2008 with the mission to improve the pet ownership experience.

As pet owners ourselves, we understand the importance of compassionate and skilled professional pet care. We specialize in maintaining your cat or dogs appearance and well-being. We believe regular grooming is essential to a healthy pet. Our state-of-the-art grooming vans provide a clean, safe and comfortable environment for your pet(s). Regardless of breed, size or age, all animals are welcome.

We look forward to making your pet look and feel fabulous!

Concierge Grooming

By coming to your home, we eliminate much of the stress associated with a traditional grooming salon. There is less noise and virtually no interruptions during the grooming session. Dogs feel safe and secure in the “den-like” environment they share with their groomer.

Our groomers are in direct communication with you to insure that we are meeting your styling expectations as well as have the opportunity to make recommendations based on your dogs breed and condition.

Our only requirement is a place to park and an electrical outlet.

Why Choose Us?

We strive to offer the highest quality of customer service and grooming available. Our groomers receive ongoing education to be current with the trends and styles of the industry.

In addition, our vans are stocked with the finest equipment and supplies.

Most importantly… we trust and believe in our grooming team! We are confident in their abilities and talents to improve your pet ownership experience.

Kara was kind and Abby liked her from the beginning. Being deaf and blind, she is sometimes scared……..Kara did a beautiful job. Abby was dry and didn’t shiver for an hour after her trip to the groomer. She just settled right in her bed and took a nap. Very good experience. We intend to use Kara again……recommend her to anyone looking for a dog groomer. Thank you Kara

I’ve been using Ultimate Dog Grooming for the past few months. Britney is a rockstar!! She has been grooming my dog for the past two years ( when she worked for those other guys), what an absolute asset to the company, I couldn’t be happier with the service they provide. From the initial phone call to set the appointment, to the professional service at the door. I will continue to use ultimate dog grooming, and I suggest you do the same!!

Lizzy was great with Elli. Elli is a doodle with cancer and she has hated being groomed her whole life. We did not want her to be stressed by going to the groomer, so she was way overdue for a grooming. She was a mess. Lizzy came in and made friends with Elli immediately. Lizzy spent a LOT of time with Elli and she looks beautiful. Most importantly, Elli did not seem the least bit stressed during or after the grooming. Thanks so much!

Michelle came to my house on Saturday and treated my 3 little dachshunds as though they were her own. Oona, Duncan and Haimish look wonderful and are ready for summer with their new hair cuts. I will certainly be recommending Ultimate Dog Grooming to all my dog owning friends! Thank you again. 🙂

So HAPPY. Ultimate Dog came to my house and trimmed all 4 dogs nails in 15 minutes. I will be doing this every 4 to 6 weeks now. They are awesome.

Love Ultimate Dog and they love your pets!! So nice to have someone come to your home and give your pet personal attention rather than sitting in a kennel for hours. I’ve had 2 friends start using Ultimate Dog as well!

So happy! My Eskie doesn’t like to be handled by strangers. Lizzie was so accommodating and patient allowing me to stay while she did a trim job. We will definitely have her back for Chloe’s next trim. Highly recommend this approach to grooming.
