Grooming is an Important Part of Dog Care

Depending on the breed, age and health of the dog, grooming may be a daily activity. Many breeds require significantly less grooming than this, but regular grooming helps to ensure the dog is healthy and comfortable. It is important to note, while many dogs shed, others such as the Poodle, do not shed (see Moult). Instead, their coat grows much like human hair, and requires trimming. The main reasons for daily grooming include:

  • improved health of the skin and coat
  • decreases the chance of various health problems such as thrush, scratches, and other skin problems
  • cleans the dog
  • allows the groomer to check the dog’s health, such as looking for cuts, heat, swelling, lameness, or a change in temperament (such as depression) which could indicate the dog is sick
  • helps to form a relationship between dog and owner

Additional optional services that some dog groomers provide include services such as colouring dogs fur and painting dogs nails. They may also sell products for dogs fur and other products such as clothes.

At Kevin & Friends, we pride ourselves on providing a quality service for both you and your pet, and we hope your experience is just as enlightening as ours!

Who Are We At Kevin & Friends?

Kevin Sweets: A Master Groomer

Different States and Cities have varying definitions for a master groomer. It starts with the training. Kevin’s training first took place in Rock Springs, WY. as his teachers only student in 1983. For the first three months, Kevin observed grooming techniques on poodles and cocker spaniels. He also invested much of his time in watching grooms being done on various show dogs before he completed his first groom, to help enhance his skills. After completing a year and a half of training, Kevin opened his first grooming shop in 1985 called Kevin’s Poodle Parlor.

Training 25 years ago is nothing like it is today, which only took six weeks to complete. Kevin takes a lot of pride in his work and it shows in the final results. “A good grooming experience starts with the groomer and their ability to help your pet feel relaxed and comfortable.” (Kevin)

Through his training and experience, Kevin has also acquired his certification to be a qualified grooming instructor. At Kevin and Friends, our prices are competitive, reasonable and flexible. We pride ourselves on providing quality services at a reasonable rate, depending on your pets breed, size and overall condition. Please call, email or drop by our shop to inquire about services.
