"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 often preoccupied with our furry clients, making it challenging to answer your phone call when you're trying to book an appointment. But no need to worry! You can create your own online account, update your records and photos, and book or cancel your appointments at your convenience. How convenient is that?! However, if you're not the tech-savvy type, we're happy to assist you the old-fashioned way. Simply leave us a voicemail, send us a text, or email your inquiry, and we'll get back to you within 1-2 business days.

 

We are proud to offer our grooming clients high end professional salon products that are made with only natural, biodegradable, non-toxic ingredients with no unnecessary additives or thickeners. Did I mention they smell amazing! We also provide our full groom clients with adorable seasonal accessories to wear home.

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 away from home. 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 at an additional fee. 

 

Dog owners often struggle to find experienced professionals they can fully trust. Grooming dogs can be a challenging task, as not all dogs are well-behaved and cooperative. Some may be fearful, restless, or even aggressive. Handling such situations requires skill, patience, and kindness. At All Access Dogs we hold high ethical standards and staff is always well trained and equipped to handle such challenges. We provide staff with the opportunity to attend yearly seminars to improve not only their skills but certifications in safety, handling and more. 

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 the owner of All Access Dogs. She is not only a certified groomer but has also 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 provide Group Dog Training Classes that you can explore by visiting the services tab on our website. Our classes are diverse and constantly expanding, catering to various types and levels. Our primary focus is to teach you as the handler how to understand and train your dog for any situation, be it basic manners at home, in public, or for competition.
