Does your golden retriever Dusty have some scraggly-looking leg feathers? Has your little Yorkie Alvin started to resemble a walking mop head? Is your standard poodle Bentley looking like a wild man lately? Sounds like all these guys are overdue for a trip to the groomer. Good thing Murphy, NC has three full-service grooming shops, ready to give your dog a much-deserved beauty treatment. Each operation has its own distinctive vibe.
Let’s begin with Green Paws Grooming in downtown Murphy. This appointment-only business is located on Hickory Street, just a stone’s throw from Cherokee Cellars Winery. Owner/groomer Helen specializes in small and medium dogs, and works one-on-one with your pooch throughout the process. Using natural products, she gives each canine client an aromatherapeutic massaging bath and a gentle air drying. Each dog’s low-stress grooming experience concludes with a finish clip that makes them look – and feel — their best.
Next, head across town to Lovin Care Pet Grooming. Located at the junction of Pleasant Valley Road and Hill Street, this convenient business is open most weekdays and on Saturdays. The shop’s all-breed-certified groomer also has experience with competition and show grooming. In addition to your dog’s bath and finish clip, his groomer can brush his pearly whites and give him a skin conditioning treatment. Lovin Care also offers a client pick-up and delivery service, along with doggie daycare.
Finally, visit All Creatures Short and Tall, located on U.S. Highway 64 West next to the Waffle King (another well-known Murphy, NC landmark). This appointment-only grooming shop serves clients Monday through Friday, and also opens its doors on the first Saturday of each month. Katherine’s full-service grooming operation focuses on providing exceptional service while keeping each client calm and comfortable. For example, you might see a happy-looking dog playing with his buddies until it’s his turn on the grooming table. Of course, roomy kennels are also available for dogs who prefer those accommodations. Finally, ACST helps to connect people and animals via its website and Facebook page, committed to finding loving homes for deserving animals within our community.
While making your dog’s spa appointment, ask if the shop requires proof of current vaccinations, or has other service-related requests. By avoiding surprises, your gorgeous-looking dog will be more likely to come home with a happily wagging tail.
