From Fluff to Fabulous: Our Grooming Process

How We Groom Our Furry Friends

Embark on a grooming journey with Modern Pet Salon that ensures comfort, style, and happiness for your furry friend. Our meticulous four-step process is designed to provide a seamless and enjoyable grooming experience, tailoring each step to meet the unique needs of your beloved pet.



Every session begins with a one-on-one consultation to understand your pet's needs, discuss any concerns, and tailor our services to suit their individual style and comfort.

Pictures are most certainly welcome and encouraged.


Prep & Bath

Your pet is then prepped for a soothing bath using our range of high-quality shampoos and conditioners, selected to match their skin and coat needs, ensuring they're clean, comfortable, and ready for styling.


Blast off & Fluffy Dry

After a refreshing bath, it's time for a blast off and fluff dry. This not only efficiently dries your pet's coat but also provides a much-needed break, allowing them to relax before the final styling. We do not use any cage dryers to keep our four-legged, furry, friends, safe and comfortable.


Groom & Style

Now, our expert groomers artfully trim, cut, and style your pet's coat. With precision and flair, we create the agreed-upon look, ensuring your pet leaves feeling comfortable and looking their best.

Important Safety Update Regarding Dog Flu

At Modern Pet Salon, the health and safety of your beloved pets are our top priority. In light of the recent outbreak of dog flu, we’ve implemented stringent safety measures to ensure your pets well-being during their visit:

Isolated Kennels

To prevent any potential spread, all kennels are now isolated from one another.

No Shared Water Bowls

Each pet will have its own water bowl to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination..

Enhanced Cleaning Protocol

We're conducting hourly cleanings of all surfaces with veterinarian-grade cleaners to maintain the highest level of hygiene.

Vigilant Monitoring on Entry

Our team is carefully monitoring every pet at the time of entry. Please note, we reserve the right to kindly refuse service to any pet that shows signs of illness, to protect all our furry clients.

Express Appointments for Vulnerable Pets

Pets with autoimmune issues are encouraged to book express appointments for their safety and convenience.

Spacious Grooming Areas

We've arranged all kennels and grooming tables to maintain at least a 5-foot distance from each other, ensuring ample space between pets.

Optimized Air Quality

Our facility is equipped with two commercial-size ventilation systems, and we're conducting weekly filter changes to ensure the best air quality.

Your trust in us is invaluable, and we are committed to going above and beyond to keep your pets safe and healthy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
