Salty Dog did an excellent job grooming our nervous dog! The grooming area is crate free and I was reassured that they would not use anything on him that made him more nervous. Previously, we avoided having him groomed because he was overly stressed by the environment at another groomer. Salty Dog was done with him in only 2-3 hours and I picked up a clean, happy dog! The day care areas were hysterical… happy dogs everywhere! The staff was great and clearly cared a lot about the dogs. We will definitely return! Thank you, Salty Dog!
