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. Whether its in our state-of-the-art grooming vans or in our shop we 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

Our goal is to release 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 when they are in a “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.

THE only requirement using our mobile grooming service is just 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.

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

Schedule your appointment today by filling out the form on our contact page. You can also browse our comprehensive list of services, here.
