New This Year!!

Creative Grooming Presentation!

New to Woofa~Roo ---- New to Essex County

We want to show you an artistic side to grooming. We have called on several local groomers to put their best efforts forward and inject a bit of art into their craft. We are excited to present their final results on Sunday June 25th.

PLEASE NOTE:All products our groomers use are pet friendly and not much different from face paint for children. All these dogs are accustom to being groomed on a regular basis and often look forward to being handled during the process. Some fall asleep.

NO NERVOUS dogs are used during the grooming.
