Renee and her team are awesome! We have been going to her for over a year. This grooming parlor is the only one we have ever taken our Persians to where they haven't come home completely traumatized. You can tell they really love animals and treat them well - and if it wasn't for the keen eye of Renee, we wouldn't have realized that our cats had a few health issues that had popped up that we were then able to treat. We will continue to go back again and again - it is rare to find a groomer that even accepts cats, let alone one that puts them at ease. If you're looking for a good, gentle groomer, Joyful Grooming gets two thumbs up from hubs, myself, and Sir Champion Floofypants/Miss Gingerbread Cookie. EDIT in 2022 - my original review was done in 2017/18. I wanted to update to let anyone curious know that we are still going to Joyful Grooming and still very happy with Renee and her team. I think a sign of a good business is the amount of repeat customers, and we're going on 5 years plus with Renee and highly recommend.

I would give a million stars if I could. Renee does an excellent job and clearly treats every animal with the kindness and gentleness they deserve. She takes the time to answer questions and give advice (which we greatly appreciate as first time dog owners) and is someone who truly puts the animal’s well being first. So grateful to have found Joyful Grooming!

Good variety of things to choose from the menu. Loved the outdoor seating. Waitress was very attentive. I'll definitely be going back.

Our 1-year old Bichon Frise, Nelson, just had his first appointment with Renee and she did a fantastic job. Nelson has had almost constant ear gunk problems since we got him. Vet has helped some but Renee was able to clean them out and only charged a modest fee to do so. Nelson looks great and we are ecstatic that his ears are so much better. I was very impressed that Renee spent about 10 minutes with us at the start of the appointment — socially-distanced outside, of course — to learn a little about Nelson and then spent another 10 minutes when we picked him up to discuss the appointment and what to do now. Our experience with Renee was professional, thorough and friendly. We will definitely be going back even though we live almost 1/2 hour away.

A nightmare. My dog required an urgent vet care visit due directly to the stress he experienced here. Owner is a psycho. Do not go here. ETA per owner's response: That's a total lie. When the owner (Renee) called to say she would not groom my dog, she did not mention that he was stressed. But in fact, his increased coughing was due to the stress she caused him, as I knew was the case when I saw the state he was in when I picked him up, and as was confirmed by my vet. His stress level was extreme after an hour and a half in her care. She has refused to explain why, and my dog (Teddy) can't explain why, now can he? (He has been groomed at other places without issue or incident, so **whatever** happened here is different than all his other past experiences.) All I know is that I have never before nor since seen him in such a state of trauma, and I hope I never do again....and I hope none of you reading this review will ever have to see your dog in this kind of distress. Which is why I can only advise you....don't bring your dog to this place.

My experience was excellent. My dog was 17 and in his last months. He was blind and deaf and had anxiety. The team here treated my Bailey so wonderful. Knowledgable, kind and friendly. I highly recommend.

Renee and her team are amazing! They took such great care of our cat, SweetPea. SweetPea is very particular about who handles her and because she’s an excessive groomer herself, we knew it was important to find someone that knows what they’re doing! You will not be disappointed going to Joyful Grooming!
