What Makes Us Different
We are honored to be the recipient of the Times Herald Record Readers Choice Award for "Best Pet Groomer" and "Best Pet Boarding" four years in a row!
From the moment you step into Hairy Tails, you will see, hear and smell the difference! We strive to offer a comforting, relaxing and stress free experience for your pet. Hairy Tails is a full service day spa and home pet sitting service. We offer 24 hour emergency services as well as early opening and late pick up to accomodate your busy schedule! As an AKC Safety Certified business, we are held to strict guiedlines when it comes to operating procedures and disease control.
Animal senses are much more acute than our own. Loud noises, busy confined rooms and unpleasant smells are extremely stressful for your pet. If YOU can see, smell and hear the difference, imagine how much more comfortable your pet will be! At Hairy Tails, your pet is treated like royalty!
In the grooming parlor, the open floor plan and the big picture window offers an abundance of natural light. Earth tones and barn wood create a warm, home-like environment while soothing meditative music plays in the background. Appointments are scheduled so that your pet(s) can enjoy private treatment without interaction from other families. With a choice of pillows and pet beds, guests can relax comfortably before and after their treatment. In the adjacent lounge, a living room set-up is available for pets that would like some quiet time. The parlor is cleaned after each appointment and sanitized every evening to provide a healthy environment and eliminate any lingering “l’odeur de doggy.”
