Dog Grooming Near Me Furtastic Pet Grooming

Have you ever asked yourself “Where could I find dog grooming near me?”

It can be challenging to find a quality groomer who is professional, has great services, and is nearby. The question has numerous other individual questions tied into it, such as “Where do I start looking?”, “What methods can I use?”, and “What am I looking for in a groomer?”

“Where do I start looking for dog grooming near me?” and “What methods do I use?”

A good place to search for good dog groomers is easily Google, Yahoo, or any other search engine. They tend to display plenty of dog grooming sites, describe services, and where they are located. You can use a map website, such as Google Maps, in tandem with these websites to get an idea of where they are located in relation to you. However, there are drawbacks, such as the websites lacking information or there simply being too many websites to browse through.

There are also other ways to address the “dog grooming near me” dilemma. One is through simple word of mouth, hearing about dog groomers from friends, family, co-workers, and so on. When you hear about groomers in these ways, you’ll often get either very positive feedback or very negative feedback. This makes it clear whether you should or shouldn’t visit. Word of mouth can apply to more than real-life interactions. It can be hearing about a dog groomer via Facebook, online reviews, and other digital media. There are fewer drawbacks to this than searching via the Internet. However, there are a select few, for example getting only positive or negative feedback, never getting information about anything in-between, like someone good at one thing but not another.

“What am I looking for in a dog groomer?”

One of the things you may be looking for is a dog groomer that offers walk-in grooming.  Another important factor in your search is location, you probably searched “dog grooming near me” to get to this blog post in the first place. Offered services are also important. If you go to a dog groomer for de-shed treatments and they don’t do de-shed treatments, then it really wasn’t worth going. Being high-quality and professional is important as well.

And with that, three of the smaller questions making up the question “Where could I find dog grooming near me?” have been answered. There are plenty of other questions, however, these three tend to be the ones people ask the most in relation to the major question. All that’s left is for you to get searching, hopefully using the information provided to your benefit.

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 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.

Pet Grooming Coupons and

General Maintenance

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, some things you can’t ignore in order to keep your pets healthy. Here are some things to keep in mind, and some new pet grooming coupons we have to help your furry friends if you don’t have time.

As a rule of thumb, your pet needs grooming 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’ hair cut. So there are a couple of things that you can do. We talked about walk-in services. These services help with the care of your pet during tight budget times. Take advantage of these services to keep your pet’s ears and nails cleaned and trimmed once a month. 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.  For more helpful pet grooming maintenance information please see ASPCA’s helpful tips.

Pet Grooming Coupons!

Here at Furtastic, 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.  You can also visit our page on Facebook. 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!

With our relocation coming soon we wanted to tell you that our new location has been chosen!  It is within a short ride and only one exit down from our current location. We did our best to keep our Salon as close to our current location as possible so that our customers can 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.

Furtastic Pet Grooming New Location

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 at our salon. 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 new Furtastic Pet Grooming 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 Furtastic Pet Grooming 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 our salon will be located on the left corner next to Bono’s Italian Restaurant. As our progress continues in rebuilding and relocating our salon 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 our salon 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

Most people don’t often think of their pet’s teeth when going to the groomer, and 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, but 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.

Pet 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.  No matter the age or breed, pets can develop ulcers on the lips, tongue, gums, and back of the throat if infected.

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 dental health can lead to several issues, but our grooming salon offers a good enzymatic tooth-brushing 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 for superior pet dental health at your next groom or walk-in service.    

Stop in and see us today and let us help with your pet’s dental health!

Short-Haired Dog Grooming

BY NICOLE IPSON | February 22, 2018



It is commonly thought that a short-haired dog doesn’t need a professional groom.  When people think about grooming the first thing that comes to mind is long-haired dogs. However, your short-haired dog’s professional groom is 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 have short hair.  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 Short-Haired Dog

Whether your short-haired dogs are large or small, getting them groomed quarterly will 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

dogsroutines can always help keep a handle on this. Even if you don’t have time to leave your short-haired dog for a full day of grooming there are options to help!

Puppy’s First Groom

BY NICOLE IPSON | January 25, 2018


GroomerThe holidays have passed and with that, you may have gotten the gift of a fluffy new pup! Read on for tips about your puppy’s first grooming.  The questions that all new puppy owners have – when do you start grooming, and when is the at-home bath not enough? Well, the answer is actually pretty simple.

When you bring home a new puppy you should get started training right away.  Even at 8 weeks old, your puppy is ready to start training. This training should include a puppy’s first groom, because if introduced early, a puppy can learn to love 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, because 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 during your puppy’s first groom 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 on their first groom.

Depending on how your pet takes the groom, the groomer may suggest doing this package a few times even after the puppy’s first groom. 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 and 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 during the puppy’s first groom, because 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 first time groom just remember it takes adjusting and time. We always look forward to seeing you and your furry friends and are always happy to share information!

Dog Baths After The Holiday Season

BY NICOLE IPSON | December 29, 2017

Dog Baths

As we are coming up on New Years this weekend things are slowly starting to return to normal. Your decorations are starting to come down and new gifts have found their homes. With the return to the everyday grind of life, you may start to notice that your precious pups may have been overlooked. This along with the return of the snow has presented you with a stinky little friend and short cash flow.

During this time of the year, dog baths are easy to hold off on, but we would like to help. The dogs and cats have become stinky, and matting occurs most often during this time. However, here at Furtastic, we have just the thing to help during this time of the year. We would like to present our customers with coupons that can be combined with our already low prices. Though your pet may not need a full haircut, playing outside in the snow and mud can make the need for a cleaning apparent.

Basic Dog Bath Package

  • Basic Bath & Shampoo, Nail Trim, Ear Cleaning, Anal Glands, & 15 Minutes Of Brushing. 

De-Shed Package

  • Upgraded Shampoo, Conditioner, Nail Trim, Ear Cleaning, Anal Glands, Up to 45 Minutes Of Brushing To Pull The Unnecessary Undercoat.

Cost vary based on breed and condition of pet at time of the groom.

With a simple bath, we can help keep long haired pups brushed out to avoid matting. Our packages are also good for the short-haired dogs who may be pushing out undercoat or just have an oily feel to them. Either way, we are here to help and would love to see you in the coming future. Let us help you to keep your pets clean and moisturized until they are ready for their full grooms!

Enjoy $5 off your basic bath package when booked during the week. We would also like to invite our customers to try our De-Shed Package with $10 off when booked during the week. Coupon must be printed out and presented at time of payment. We look forward to seeing you and your furry friends!
