All Access Dogs LLC Grooming & Training in upstate South Carolina

ALL ACCESS DOGS

"Where the training is always fun and the grooming is about the quality not quantity. We are always striving to raise the bar."

HOW WE RAISE THE BAR YOU ASK?

We're so busy working with our furry clients that it's often difficult to answer your phone call when you're calling to book an appointment. Thankfully you can create your own online account, update records, photos and book or cancel your own appointments! How convenient is that?! Don't worry though if you're not a techy individual. If you prefer the old fashioned way we will certainly call you back within 24-48 hours. Just leave us a voicemail, text us or email your inquiry and requests. 

 

We are proud to offer our grooming clients a selection of products that are all natural. Made with only natural, biodegradable, non-toxic ingredients with no unnecessary additives or thickeners. Certified gluten free, so no gluten allergens are absorbed through the skin minimizing allergic reactions for dogs and their owners. These products are professional grade yet gentle enough not to wash away topical flea and tick prevention ensuring your dog stays protected. Did I mention they smell amazing! 

Every dog is guaranteed to be treated like they're our own. We promote quality over quantity to assure your dog has the best possible experience every time. Grooms are by appointment only and scheduled at a specific time in order to minimize the time your dog spends in a kennel. However, if you're a pet parent that enjoys some time off and would like your dog to stay and play during their spa day, we got that covered too. Half and full day "Stay & Play" is available for friendly sociable dogs. 

 

One of the biggest struggles dog owners face is being able to find someone who is experienced in all the right ways and being able to trust that their dog is well cared for. It's widely known that the job of a groomer is not always easy. Let's face it, not all dogs are angels on the table. Some are fearful, wont sit still and may try to bite. It takes experience, skill, patience and kindness to properly handle these situations. That's where our high ethical standards and unique training program come into play. 

For puppies getting accustomed to grooming for the first time or for the adult dog who maybe had a bad experience and fears grooming, we got that covered too. Just ask us about our exclusive program "Training for Grooming." 

 

Angela Efinger is not only a certified groomer but has spent over a decade working as a dual certified professional dog trainer. Her skill sets are top notch! With experience in both grooming and training, Angela is able to help most dogs over come their fear, or at least tolerate grooming, if not enjoy it. Some dogs even learn to cooperate in their own care by lifting a paw for the groomer to clip nails, stand still when asked, turn around on cue, voluntarily jumping into the tub or onto the table. Making for a more safe and enjoyable experience for both dog and groomer. 

We also offer revolving enrollment (RE) group puppy and obedience classes. These classes are unique from others in our area for several reasons, one being that RE allows you to begin your 6 week course at any time, as long as the class is not full that particular week. Class is structured so that each week does not depend on the previous week, so you can start at any point. This also allows you to be able to make up a class you missed! We know you live a busy life and its hard enough to find the time for ourselves let alone our dog so our classes were designed with you in mind. 

 

Our group classes are highly focused on the human learners. It is built around problem solving and decision making applied to real-life scenarios. What this means is you will be able to apply what you’ve learned and be successful at home or in public places. Not be left scratching your head after each class. To do this we set up scenarios and play them out. The experience is fun, educational and sure to have you telling all your friends. 

We know your time is precious so we won't write a novel (because we could!) please stop in or call today. We'd love to tell you more about all the little details we put into our business to ensure each guest has the best possible experience.
