Our Rover Come Over groomers have attended multiple grooming expos and styling seminars including those held in Hershey, Pennsylvania and Novi, Michigan. Beyond learning the latest in technique and styling trends, they've completed training classes dealing with canine health, skin and coat care and working with various dog temperaments.
Professional groomers know the character, habits and coat characteristics of many different breeds.
They also know the standards of style and appearance for the various breeds.
To work successfully with dogs and cats, they have to be animal psychologists, understanding how to handle dogs with very different personality types and behaviors, making the grooming experience pleasant for everyone.
Finally, they are educators, teaching dog owners what they need to do to maintain their dog's grooming and keep their dog healthy and well-cared for.
Our groomers, Lindsey, Kadi and Sheila are anxious to meet you and your precious pups. Special requests or preferences? Our groomers will take the time to listen. With their years of training and experience they do their best to groom your dog just the way you like.
Please Note: Rover Come Over requires that all dogs receiving any Rover service be up-to-date with their vaccinations (Rabies, DHPP, Bordatella, Leptospirosis and Canine Influenza). Please have your vet fax vaccination records to us at 419-861-9101 prior to your appointment.
