U.S. Detection Dogs LLC. trains K-9s in odor detection of narcotics, explosives, bed bugs, and more, and provides them to a range of government agencies, businesses, schools, and homes. Within their 7,500-square-foot facility, groomers use their ease with animals to perform grooming services. Massages relax loyal pets, and coat-cleansing shampoos and soaps brim with lemongrass and cedar to repel bugs and peppermint oil to keep dogs clean.
Cameo's skilled staffers tend and shear canine flocks amid hunter-green walls and sturdy wooden dividers. After a maximum of 10 tail waggers arrive each day, the staff nudges the pups to develop sociable demeanors through friendly play and brisk walks around the facility. When pups grow weary of needy human attention, they can lounge on soft doggy beds in front of large picture windows and bark at passing needy humans. Cameo's groomers wash dogs with all-natural John Paul Pet shampoo before slathering their coats with tea-tree oil and oatmeal conditioners. Once dogs are squeaky clean, groomers clip their nails, trim their fur, and teach them how to quote dog movies.
The pet stylists of Applause Four Paw’s freshen pets’ looks without causing stress to the animals. Before snipping a single strand, pets and their parents meet with a groomer for an initial consultation to discuss grooming options. Dogs are never given tranquilizers to keep them calm—just plenty of petting and voices as soothing as their mother’s nursery howls. Additionally, the staff ensures that only organic, hypoallergenic oatmeal shampoos touch pups’ skin to reduce irritation.

Dogs and humans have a lot of the same needs. They both eat several times a day, sleep every night, and prefer to bathe in their home's driveway. That's where So Cal Grooming comes in.

A manually operated hydraulic grooming table raises and lowers to accommodate all sizes and breeds and allow the groomer to work at a comfortable height.
