“I was very pleased with both the courteous service and the fun atmosphere for the dogs. Journey is not always social with other dogs and I love knowing she can be separated, but still roam and play. This made a huge impression, especially seeing how happy she was when I picked her up. She loves her summer cut and is acting like a puppy again. Thank you so much for the attentive care to my beautiful girl. We will definitely be coming back!”
“I loved Hair of the Dog! Heather and Amy were both very friendly. My little Penelope came home beautiful and happy. They have a great open area for dog friendly dogs to share each other’s company while they wait their turn or wait to go home. Clean, cheerful puppy parlor. LOVED IT! Already made an appointment for next time.”

“Amy and Heather are REMARKABLE! They are so good with my dog Duke! He’s actually happy after a visit with them! I had groomers tell me to drug my dog in the past, but their loving approach has tamed his wild anxiety (without doping him out!)! I love these gals! And so does Duke! Friendly environment, with lots of fun for your pup! Highly recommended!!!”
“This place Rocks! It’s clear in everything they do that they genuinely care about the dogs and take pride in the business their running.”
“We will never go anywhere else! I had just started going to Heather’s old grooming place before she moved and got her own shop, and was lost! I was so sad that I had lost a great groomer and then was so excited when I found her new business recently! I have gone to 10+ other groomers around sonoma county that haven’t even come close to the skill that they have grooming my malamute/husky mix! He always leaves fluffy, soft, clean, and perfectly groomed and clipped! Plus I love that they have a play area for the animals so they aren’t left in crates. Plus they have very competitive rates which is really important to me when you have a 70+ lb poofball with fur that mats like crazy! Love them!”
“Cassie’s looking gorgeous after getting pampered at Hair of the Dog. Thanks Heather and Amy!!”
“Love the care my dog receives from Heather and Amy! Tucker was just there yesterday-he goes in happy and comes out happy, and clean cute!”

“It’s so nice to leave my pup with such sweet women and I honestly feel they take good care of him. He is not locked in a create until I pick him up, but he gets to play and is all smiles when I get there.”
“My two pups had a wonderful time here it was the easiest drop off I have ever experienced with my chihuahua Mick usually he’s trying to escape. Amy was wonderful and they were gorgeous and very happy when I picked them up. I am so happy to have found this place.”
“Heather and Amy are awesome! They always do such a great job with our crazy mal/husky mix Smokey who is definitely a handful to groom! I’m so glad I found their new (to me) location! They even have a play area so the animals aren’t kept in crates! We love going here!=, and Smokey can’t wait to go back!”
“I can happily and easily, highly recommend Hair of the Dog. I am deeply grateful for the conscientious way Heather and Amy cared for and groomed my senior rescued Pekingese, who can be a bit nippy and grouchy around folks who don’t have patience and presence, kind of like me : )
I was treated so kindly on the phone when I called for a short notice appointment, I was looking forward to meeting them. Both Heather and Amy are warm, kind, professional and gracious. I felt totally comfortable leaving my little rescue in their care. and am very pleased with their work.
I know they were very good to her because she was calm and happy when I returned for her. 5 stars all around, animal AND customer relations, grooming, professional, cleanliness, and rates. Thank you Heather and Amy, wishing you much success and happiness.”

“Very happy with Hair of the Dog. Took our two Scottish Terriers (age 3 and 8) to Heather and Amy and they did a fine job. Our young Scotty is very allergic. No itching or scratching at all and they both are soft and clean with happy faces. I also liked the relaxed location. I will take them back again.”
“WOW is all I can say, my Golden, Daisy Mae was so Beautiful and Happy when I came in to pick her up…Heather and Amy are the best…never going anywhere else again! No crating, less than 2 hours in and out, low pricing….can’t get any better than them! 😉 Pretty sure Daisy Mae will willingly walk in next time…lol…she wubbed it, she got to sleep in mommy’s bed last night! Thank you Hair of the Dog….You Rock! ;)”
“Super great gals, groomers, etc., I have two large goldens that went in for a summer cute and wash. Pricing was so much better than Sonoma clippers; and they looked awesome, not a hair out of place. I’ll be back and encourage anyone to use this great new place. It was very clean and they definitely know their dogs!”
“Amy did a fantastic job on our red standard poodle, Baron. She was very gentle and put him at ease. He was a little nervous since it was his first time there but when I came to pick him up he looked like he was having a great time and was very happy. I just made his second appointment and look forward to getting him all gorgeous once again.”
“I’m super picky about where I take my cat to get her groom on and bathed. Luckily I found this wonderful place! My cat always turns out clean and beautiful. Smells great! PS: If you are looking for a groomer that can do that special ‘Lion Cut’ for your cat, look no further than this place. You won’t be sorry.”
“They did an excellent job with my old, mangy cat. He smells great, feels much better, and a joy again to pet. He’s happy, I’m happy.
Pros: caring, attentive staff. Sparkling clean facility. It was more than a haircut and a bath, it was a spa day where they put love into the service. VERY reasonable prices.
Con: location is kind of out of the way unless you live in Southwest SR. Parking spots were few and narrow, making getting him into and out of the car somewhat challenging.
Overall: An excellent job at an excellent price by very loving people. I’ll be using them again!”
“Took my 130 lb Rottie there for his first spa day! They took him in at the last minute and he was a hot dirty mess!!! He enjoyed it totally!!! He left looking very handsome and was very pleased with himself! The price was right and service was excellent!!! We will be going back!!! Thank you!!!!”
“I love this place!! Heather is AWESOME with my little dog. I was taking my dog to a groomer in Bennett Valley and every time I would take Daisy there she would shake uncontrollably which made wonder why……. I have been taking Daisy to Heather for 3yr now and even on our first visit Daisy was happy to see Heather(no shaking). Heather is a genuinely a sweet and caring lady! I highly recommend her.”
“A perfect place to have your dog or cat groomed! They are THE most caring and loving and knowledgeable groomers I have used. My dog had a bath and nails done and I am returning soon.”
“We brought our German Shepherd, Ben, to be groomed last week and they did a wonderful job! Ben looked handsome! The girls that run the place are very friendly. We will definately be bringing him back. Thanks Danielle for recommending them.”
“This is the place to bring your pet for grooming. Easy to access from everywhere and a perfectly great job. Professional job in a nice relaxed setting and appointment in short notice.”
“I have been bringing my dog to one of the owners before she opened this place and she is wonderful. My whole family now is going to hair of the dog! My dog even enjoys going. I’m very grateful for their business.”
