They're amazing! My dogs are 12yo and 14yo. The 14yo is fairly blind and spooks really easily. Howlistic takes special care with both and makes sure they don't have to stay longer than necessary. (I mention their age and issues when booking) Even my older dog is calm when I pick her up! And they always look beautiful.

Our Berner is still clean and smelling good after a week. His coat is just as shiny and clean as the day we picked him up. We honestly can’t believe it. This is the best job anyone has done deshedding him. He’s a lot more comfortable in the summer heat without that heavy undercoat. We are definitely bringing him here from now on. Thanks to the friendly staff for making him feel comfortable too!

This was my first time taking my puppy here. I was nervous because BillyBob is scared of the blow dryer. Literally scares the poop out of him. When I picked him up, he was relaxed and seemed comfortable which made me very happy. He looks so handsome and smells Wonderful. We have found our place. Thank you Howlistic Grooming! See you soon!

Professional and experienced. My dog is 12 and has hip dysplasia so necessities like grooming always give me anxiety. The whole team at Howlistic does a wonderful job not only grooming my boy, but taking care of him while he’s in their hands. They are very good with older dogs and dogs with health concerns, would recommend to anyone looking for a groomer they can trust.

I submitted a contact form through the website to see if I could book an appointment for my two year old german shepherd who suffers from stress at other grooming salons. The "About" section for this place described a stress free environment that I felt could be a better place that my pet would benefit from. One week later and I did not receive a call until I recently called and was told that the manager said not take my dog. The person I spoke with told me the manager would contact me in a few days but never did. She told me that they did not want to see my dog because of the situation of stress that I mentioned at the other groomer locations. I am extremely upset that my pet was not given an opportunity to be seen and evaluated at this location to see if she responds differently to the environment since its "stress free". So if you have a pet that is stressed out during grooming DO NOT waste your time in requesting an appointment because they will not take in your pet.

These Groomers have taken such good care of my dog, I could not be happier. Previous groomers muzzled my dog for "bad behavior" and two groomings with Howlistic and no muzzle! thank you!!!

It was my first time bringing my toy puddle to Howlistic and I'm very pleased! He smells great and looks amazing! They even wrote me a little card about how well he did. We will definitely be back :)

I took my dog here after she came back a bit stressed from her previous groomer (lethargic, not eating, sensitive to touch). She can be a bit skittish when she gets a bath - never aggressive - but I wonder if this might have made for a traumatic grooming experience for her. I was happy to see that Howlistic Grooming specialize in giving pets a comfortable grooming environment, while still getting the job done. Additionally, I had a friend who vouched for them. Idk why I allowed both myself and my dog to suffer for so long. I should have made the change to Howlistic Grooming way sooner. It was easy to get an appointment. Dropping my dog off was quick & simple. My dog is about 45lbs with short hair (a huge shedder). They told me it could take up to 3-4 hours, but it only took 1.5-2. It took no longer than 5 minutes to pick her up. My dog smells amazing and she's acting completely normal. I also felt like the prices were reasonable. Everyone was very friendly and professional as well.

I have been taking my Pomeranian baby here for over a year now, and every single time I pick him up he looks like a whole new pup in the best way possible!! Having a furry friend with SO MUCH FUR makes it complicated to find the right groomer who knows how to handle it all. I LOVE Howlistic because they’re consistent and amazing at what they do. I cannot recommend them enough!! ANDD they’re reasonably price, I mean c’mon people!

My dogs don’t like to be groomed. Howlistic does a wonderful job with them. They are great about calling me with questions during the grooming session. Rather making assumptions. Love that!!

I have an older dog with health complications and a lot of anxiety but whenever I take her to Howlistic for her grooming she happily walks in and doesn't try to nip at the groomers when they take her in. She might not be as happy once she's in the water lol but they take very good care of her and I wouldn't ever take her anywhere else. I think the price is very fair for the time and work they put into my dog and they have a little rewards program that gives you discounts every once and a while. I've recommend Howlistic to all my friends with pets.

called and scheduled only nail trim, my dog gets full bath and trim without my permission. They cut her and you can see it in the photos! I will not go back there. I lost $55+tip for what my dog didn't need.
