 Furtastic Salon Has Moved!

BY NICOLE IPSON | November 30, 2018




Furtastic Salon has finally found it’s new home one exit up off of Indiana. Unfortunately, during our busy season, we had to relocate our business. That being said, we are happy to announce that we now have a new salon location that we feel our customers can be proud of. We appreciate everyone’s patience with the location that our Furtastic Salon was previously at off of 6th and Simms. We understand and agree that the location was just not acceptable for the groomers working inside or the customers that trust us with their pets.

November 24th was the start to our official move. Now the previous location is empty and our new location is set up, clean and operating beautifully! We invite everyone to come out and see the new Furtastic Salon located right next door to Bono’s Italian Restaurant! Although the location has moved, the amazing groomers that were located inside of our previous location are still with us at our new location!

salonWe would also like to take a moment to thank all of the groomers for their patience in getting the new salon ready. They turned lemons into lemonade while turning out beautiful pets, and keeping customers happy; they have done an amazing job and we are so completely proud of them! A great amount of time into setting up the new salon along with Owner Melissa Tuffield. We have a strong team and family driving the force of our new Furtastic Salon and we look forward to improving even more in the future.

So with all of that in mind, again we would like to say thank you all for sticking with us. Without our hard-working groomers and our loyal and patient customers, none of this would be possible! Call us today or come on over to the new Furtastic Salon and say hi! We would love to show you the new shop that we are all extremely proud of. You can find us located at 14799 W 6th Ave Frontage Rd, Golden, CO 80401.

General Maintenance & New Coupons

BY NICOLE IPSON | October 31, 2018


With the school season here and everybody preparing to get their children back in their routines, it’s easy to forget about the general maintenance of our pets. However, there are things that just shouldn’t be ignored in order to keep your pets healthy. Here are some things to keep in mind, and some new coupons we have to help your furry friends if you don’t have time.

As a rule of thumb, your pet should be groomed every 6 to 8 weeks.

However, at times life can get in the way and we might not always have the budget to have our pets haircut. So there are a couple of things that you can do. We spoke about talked about walk-in services. These services should be taken advantage of to help with the care of your pet during tight budget times. Using these services to keep your pet’s ears and nails. cleaned and trimmed once a month is the best practice. This will make sure that your pets are at least protected against ear infections and that they are able to comfortably walk. This, again, will also help to make sure your pets quick doesn’t grow out. In turn, this will ensure your pet’s nails can be clipped as short as possible.

Along with general maintenance of the ears in the nails, you should also be aware of proper brushing.

If you have a long-haired pet, you should make sure that they are properly brushed them out at least once a week. Taking at least 15 minutes to do this can save you money on your next groom. Matting can cause several issues like bacterial infections, bruising to the skin, and open sores. Regular brushing is simple and helps to eliminate the risk of any of these issues occurring.


Here at Fantastic, we understand that the school season and it’s financial responsibilities come first. So this may cause you to put your Furry Friends care to the side temporarily. We would like to help make things more affordable. We now are offering coupons on our Facebook. These coupons have discounts for new customers, deep coat brush outs to help cut back on chatting, and haircuts! So give us a call today and book your appointment so we can help keep your furry friend in shape. Also as a side note, we would like to mention that our sign has come down off of the front of the building. We are preparing to move but we are still located in the same place currently. So even though you can’t see our sign from the street we are still here! We hope to see you soon!

Our New Location

BY NICOLE IPSON | July 31, 2017


With our relocation coming soon we wanted to just remind you that it will be happening. Our new location has been chosen and is within a short ride one exit down from our current location. We did our best to keep our Salon is close to our current location as possible. In doing so this allows our customers to easily find us without having to go far. We hope that the new location won’t be an inconvenience for any of our customers. 

The construction is underway and things are moving forward as planned. We are very excited to have our new salon being constructed with the customers in mind. With the new salon layout, it will help us have a more pet-friendly environment. Instead of an open layout, we will have a close layout that will allow the grooming area to be quieter. This in return will help to ease stress for the pets on the table. We plan on introducing a more sleek style to the salon as well to make it a more welcoming environment for all.

Our Upcoming Move

BY NICOLE IPSON | May 18, 2018



movemoveOur salon has been growing with new clientele and loyal clients! We are more than grateful for the compassion and loyalty our customers have shown us since our transition. However, even though we have put in great effort to bring our salon up to the standards we have had a few setbacks.

We would like to reassure our customers our salon is safe for our customers and their pets to be in. However, it is no longer the facility that we wish to continue to grow in. We have done our best to repair damages caused by the storms so that we can remain in the same location. Though we have put our best foot forward there have been restrictions on what we are able to do. With that in mind, we have been taking time to find a new location with better structural “bones”. In doing so, this will allow us to build a better quality location for everyone.


Although a move date has not been set in stone due to our build-out timeline being unsure we have found a new location. Luckily we aren’t going too far! One exit up at the Indiana St & Denver W/Colorado Mills Blvd exit is where we will be located. Simply make a left as you take this exit and we will be located on the left corner next to Bono’s Italian Resturant. As our progress continues in rebuilding and relocating we look forward to giving updates! We will announce our move date as soon as it is set. For now, we would are looking at relocating this coming summer. Thank you for your continued loyalty, patience & understanding with our salon as we attempt to correct and rebuild.

Pet Dental Health

BY NICOLE IPSON |April 19, 2018


Dental Health

Add-ons are usually available that you can partake in to help you save money later down the road. Most people don’t often think of their pet’s teeth when going to the groomer, this can be a mistake. Simple add-ons such as toothbrushing can help save your pet from painful and health-threatening diseases later in life.

Dental health is just as important for your pet’s health as it is for yourself. Sadly, most owners do very little to help their pets in this department. Poor dental health can cause bacteria to travel into the pet’s bloodstream causing medical issues. Some of the dental diseases that can arrive range from bad breath to pus and even ulcers in the mouth.

Dental Health Diseases Caused By Poor Oral Hygiene

Gingivitis: Inflammation of the gums, accompanied by bad breath.

Stomatitis: Is a severe, painful inflammation of a mouth and gums. In most cases, the condition causes ulcers to form in the mouth. Pets of any age or breed can be affected and develop ulcers on the lips, tongue, gums, and back of the throat.

Periodontitis: A general Dental Healthterm for a disease of the oral cavity that attacks the gum and bone and delicate tissues around the teeth.

Pyorrhea: Inflammation of the gums and tooth sockets, often leading to loosening of the teeth and accompanied by pus.

Not taking care of your pet’s mouth can lead to several issues. Our grooming salon offers a good enzymatic toothbrushing for only $5.00! The use of enzymatic toothpaste means that we brush away anything that will come off the teeth. Enzymes in the toothpaste continue working after we are done, breaking down tartar and cleaning the gums. Also, an enzymatic spray can be used to help boost enzymes and give a minty scent to your pet’s breath. So if your furry little friend is getting smelly breath, or you notice tarter on their teeth, make sure to ask about tooth brushing at your next groom. Add toothbrushing to any groom or walk-in service. Stop in and see us today and let us help with your pets dental health.

Short-Haired Dogs Need Love Too

BY NICOLE IPSON | February 22, 2018



When people think about grooming the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired dogs. It is commonly thought that a short-haired dog doesn’t need to be professidogsonally groomed. However, having your short-haired dog professionally groomed can actually be very beneficial!

Most short-haired dogs give the impression that they don’t shed quite as much as a long-haired dog. Or that they may even be easier to bathe because of the lack of length of hair. However, a lot of owners come to find that caring for their pup or slowing the surprising amount of shed their pup has to offer can be time-consuming. There are actually several double-coated dogs that are short-haired that can make life a little more hairy in your home. Dogs such as Labrador Retrievers, Pugs (Certain Types), & Chihuahuas (Certain Types). Even though a dog may not be double-coated they can still tend to shed as well. Dogs such as Jack Russell Terriers and Boston Terriers can still give their owners vacuums a run for their money.dogs

Walk-in Services Or Quarterly Grooming Can Help With Your Dogs Health

Whether your short-haired dogs are large or small getting them groomed even if its only quarterly can help with a lot of issues. Owners tend to overlook basic needs of their short-haired friends because in some ways they can be so low maintenance. Outside of bathing needs groomers also tend to see owners overlooking the need for monthly nail clipping and ear cleaning.

Short- haired floppy eared dogs such as Basset hounds. Beagles, & Mastiffs tend to present with ear infections more often. Monthly grooming

First Time Grooming For Puppies

BY NICOLE IPSON | January 25, 2018


GroomerThe holidays have passed and with that, you may have gotten the gift a fluffy new pup! They are at the point in their lives where they can get away with anything they want. This at times also allows for them to get into stinky and sticky situations. So the question for all new or old puppy owners is when do you start grooming? When is the at home bath not enough? Well, the answer is actually pretty simple.

When someone brings home a new puppy the thought of training is one that is pushed to the future. Most people don’t realize that by the time their new little one is 8 weeks, that they can also be started on training right away. This includes, but is not limited to, dog grooming. When started early it can teach a puppy not to be afraid of grooming. Some of the things it helps them get used to are loud sounds, vibrations, & the bath. Even short-haired dogs can benefit from being started at this age. Even though they don’t need haircuts they still have to get used to the grooming process as well.

Bringing in your young friend doesn’t always mean doing the full groom. Usually, a groomer will recommend that you do a puppy trim to help with the adjustment. This will usually consist of:

  • Face, Feet & Fanny Trim

  • Basic Bath

  • Nail Clipping

  • Ear Cleaning

  • 15 Minutes of Brushing

GroomerAll of these things help to introduce the little one to the grooming process in small amounts. This allows your pup to get a feel for grooming without being completely overwhelmed or overstimulated.

Depending on how your pet takes the groom, the groomer may suggest doing this package a few times. Doing this on more nervous animals gives them more time to adjust before full grooms. Even though owners think of the salon as a spa day, they also have to remember that their little friends really have no clue what is going on. This process can make them very nervous and stressed. So patience for the process and the quality of the groom is important. A good groomer would rather take their time introducing the new pet to the process. Forcing the pup through the groom just to make it perfect never has a positive outcome.

At Furtastic Pet Grooming out first priority is the safety and happiness of your pet. The groomers in our shop do their best to make sure your pet’s visit is the best it can be. So when bringing in your new friend for a groom just remember it takes adjusting and time. We always look forward to seeing you your furry friends and are always happy to share information!

A Fresh New Face

For Furtastic

BY NICOLE IPSON | November 10, 2017



Heidi Furtastic Facilities Manager

Over the years we have taken great pride in bringing love and passion to our salon. With our recent changes, we vow to continue this tradition. In doing this we also want to make the salon better for everyone who walks in. Recently, Furtastic was taken over by Melissa Tuffield with the vision in mind to turn the salon into a top end salon. She also feels it is possible to do this while keeping with reasonable prices. Melissa wanted to make sure to hire someone who would have the drive and passion to make this happen. So, she hired Heidi to take care of and improve the salon for our existing and new customers.

With almost 10 years experience in the industry, Heidi has been chosen to take over making Furtastic a wonderful salon. She not only has plans to make sure to contract with new groomers that have nothing but the safety of your pets in mind, but also the highest quality grooming skills as well. She understands that your pets are part of your family and just wants to make sure that the facility they are groomed in, as well as the people that are grooming them, want nothing but to pamper and love your furry friends.

As they do, improvements take time and patience. So please bear with us as we begin to upgrade and improve the Furtastic Salon. We look forward to answering any questions that our customers may have. We would also like to thank all of our clients, old and new, for coming to our salon. More importantly for also trusting us to take the best care possible of your pets. With that said, we would like to welcome Heidi, the new Facilities Manager, to the Furtastic Salon!
