Japanese Chins Enjoying Bath Time

Having your dog groomed on a regular basis has numerous benefits.  First, a clean dog is nice to have around.  Second, regular grooming reduces shedding.  Finally, and most importantly, the groomer is your dog’s first line of defense in detecting health problems.  While washing your dog’s ears, feet and skin, the groomer can take notice of growths, sores, infections and parasites.  Your vet usually only sees your pet for an annual wellness exam, having your dog regularly groomed means your groomer will check your pet thoroughly every 4 to 8 weeks.

A Better Companion is equipped with a state of the art grooming facility led by certified groomers serving all breeds of dogs for nearly 20 years.  Every grooming includes 2 baths, complete brush-out, nail clipping, ear cleaning, anal glands (if necessary), and breed standard trimming or haircut.
