Cleveland, OH, United States, 2013/07/05 - High Drive Pups, LLC (HDP), a local dog training and boarding business, is pleased to announce the addition of a new service at its newly remodeled training and boarding facility: an all-breed Grooming Salon, run in collaboration with Salon Creative, LLC.
The Salon will feature professional, show-style yet affordable grooming for dogs and cats. Services include bathing, brushing, coat trims, nail trims and ear cleaning - with an emphasis on gentle handling and positive reinforcement to minimize the stress often associated with commercial grooming.
“Grooming can be an overwhelming experience for a companion animal. Even a confident, well-socialized dog can be uncomfortable being handled by a strange person, in a strange place,” said Roxana Vlasceanu, owner and trainer of High Drive Pups. “That is why we are so excited to welcome Megan to our team. She is a talented stylist, and she also has extensive experience handling and grooming behaviorally challenged dogs. Her services will complement what we offer our training and boarding clients.”
The Salon grooming hours are by appointment, Monday-Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm, with early drop off and/or late pick up available by request.
As High Drive Pups works with and rehabilitates rescue dogs, the Salon will also offer reduced rates for 501©3 Rescue Organizations who are getting their pooches ready for adoption.
