Next Stop: Phoenix — Unleashing Grooming Services in a New City

August 1, 2023

I am thrilled to announce our latest expansion into our third state and fifth major city: Phoenix, Arizona! I couldn’t be more excited to serve even more pets and pet parents. We are committed to ending traumatic trips to the grooming salon by providing luxury grooming services where all pups are bathed and pampered right at their doorsteps. 

Just three months ago we expanded into Dallas, Texas and it has been an incredible journey thus far. The loving pet parents and local communities in Dallas, as well as our awesome rescue partners — shoutout to Dallas Pets Alive and Hearts & Bones — have welcomed us with open arms and trusted us with their fur babies. We are so incredibly grateful for the opportunity and look forward to many wonderful years of service ahead!

Phoenix is a city that loves dogs as much as we do and we cannot wait to get started. Here’s why we are so excited to enter this market: 

  • Phoenix has the most dogs per household of any major city in the United States, with over 782,000 households in Maricopa County reporting to have at least one dog.
  • The Greater Phoenix area — which includes Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe, and more — has over 65,000 monthly online searches for dog grooming services.
  • According to a study conducted by WalletHub, Scottsdale, Arizona was ranked the number one most pet-friendly city in the entire United States.

We pride ourselves on providing the dogs in our care with an unparalleled experience, creating an environment where they feel safe and calm while providing pet parents with a stress-free and seamless booking experience. Our initial service areas will include Scottsdale, Paradise Valley, Arcadia, and Tempe, to name a few. You can see all the neighborhoods we service here!

While we may be new to Phoenix, we are certainly not new to grooming, and we take great pride in ensuring our commitment to quality, excellence, comfort, and safety will never waiver as we enter this new community.
