The Best of South Florida: Best Dog Groomer
We all know it's a dog eat dog world. But when your dog needs a haircut, finding the right groomer can be like chasing your own tail. So if you want Fido to look phenomenal, our viewers say man's best friend deserves the Best of South Florida.
If your life centers around dry bones and bowls of dry food, maybe your a pooch in need of some pampering.
"We know our clients by the animals not the owners"
"We groom to specific breed standards."
So unwind, let you hair down, and loosen that collar.
A day of grooming will make any canine feel like a lucky dog, especially if you visit our third choice - Puppy Love in Kendall.
"We're the best because people feel at home here, they trust us, and they get good quality haircuts and style."
And don't think just because you walk on four paws - style's not important.
We're talking about customers who demand a bow on their head.
And clients who insist they look like celbrities.
"Most dogs will get a bath and groom according to their breed's standards."
Not to mention, these guys know how to add that special touch.
"It's nerve wracking to leave your children somewhere and these are considered children also."
"They get a lot of love."
Another place that offer's a lot of love is our second choice - Petsmart.
We wanted to show you inside, but our crew wasn't allowed.
And when we tried hidden puppy-cam, well, let's just say the Petsmart staff is hard at work.
Maybe a little too hard at work.
What Lassie? Craig Stevens is stuck in the well and is in desperate need of help.
Oh, I'm sorry. I misunderstood you - you want a haircut and a manicure.
Well, I know just the place to go - it's called Just 4 Paws.
But there's good news Lassie.
You don't have to go to Just 4 Paws - instead, let them come to you.
"We give these animals a lot of tlc. They like belong to us once they step on this van."
The truth is these groomers work out of a mobile unit where the people do the driving... offering what is paws down the best service in town.
"We try to do the best job we can. we have top of the line clients."
No hot dogging here... these guys just know how to impress the animals.
"We have loyal customers out there. They really love us."
"They get treated like royalty."
And that's why they're not only the best in South Florida - they're the best in show.
Next week, we'll find out who is the big dog when it comes to serving up pizza in South Florida. Also don't forget to vote. We want to iron out the wrinkles on another hot topic - the best dry cleaners.
