About Our Services

When you enter A Tender Touch you will think that you are still outside, due to the murals by Anna Hamilton Fields, who painted the "Dogedin" murals. These were started in 2015 and will continue to have pet's portraits added to them.

At A Tender Touch we NEVER use heat dryers! Your pet has a "personal bather and dryer". Heat dryers are detrimental to your pet's health and skin. If, by chance, we are unable to dry your pet completely, they relax with an ambient air dryer until they are dry.

They are NEVER left alone during any process...safety and comfort is key at A Tender Touch. Because it is so very important for your pet to develop a trusting relationship with his/her groomer we do not switch your pets groomer once they have established a relationship.

  • No chemicals are used of any sort.

  • Flea bath is a natural flea bath.

  • We offer your pet water to drink throughout the day and lots of love.

  • We have natural grain free treats available if it is approved by their Mom or Dad.

  • We use only the highest quality of shampoos and products. Please allow our skilled bather to determine the best choice after examining your pets coat.

  • all pets faces are cleansed with a "spa" treatment that is tearless and soothing.

Unless our client's Mom or Dad's prefer to have them apart from the other dogs (who are checked for their shot records) they are allowed to roam free and play in the shop after they have their bath. They are not put in kennels or cages to wait.

Additionally, we carry Nutrisource food and treats. This food is made by the same company as Blue Buffalo. Kathy's dogs have eaten this food for years and love it...and rarely need veterinary care due to poor health...which can be attributed to a poor diet full of fillers and dyes.
