Our grooming staff are committed to making your pet's grooming experience as stress free as possible, while providing your pet with a stunning look and style that you will be proud to show off to your friends and family. Grooming services are provided 7 days a week and are offered for both dogs and cats, days and evenings!

Pet GroomersCountryside's state of the art grooming facility houses a hydrosurge bathing system, and a clippervac trimming system. The hydrosurge bathing system unit is a jacuzzi-like jet action hand held bathing unit that soothes the skin and cleans deep down to the base of the haircoat to remove more loose hair and dirt than standard bathing alone. Our clippervac system is a vacuum designed to attach to the shaving clippers that helps remove further trapped hair when trimming, providing your pet with an all-around more even, finished final look.

Essentials to Groom

For the safety of the pets in our grooming parlor, we require proof of your pet's vaccine history prior to admission into the parlor. This along with our high disinfecting and cleanliness standards, promotes good hygiene and enhances your pets safety.

Canines must be up-to-date on the following: Rabies Vaccination, Distemper Vaccination, Kennel Cough Vaccination (bi-annually), Canine Influenza Vaccination, Fecal Screening (Negative).

Felines must be up-to-date on the following: Rabies Vaccination, Distemper Vaccination, and Fecal Screening (Negative).

Puppy Series

Puppies are introduced into the parlor at a young age for their first grooming. They spend their time experiencing the sights and sounds of the parlor and are handled by the different members of the grooming team. This helps the puppies who are new to the grooming experience to be more comfortable with the idea of being groomed before having an actual full grooming. The cost of the service includes 4 visits. On the 4th visit your pup receives his/her first full grooming. This service is especially beneficial to those dogs whose breed require multiple grooming’s per year throughout their lifetime.
