Why Pets Need Routine Grooming

Professional pet grooming is not only about making your pet look good, but about keeping them healthy and comfortable, too. Healthy skin, trimmed nails, clean ears and a shiny coat are all conducive to your pet's quality of life. Since they cannot brush themselves or clean their own ears, it is up to you (and us) to manage those tasks. Our Happy Tails Activity Center in Limerick offers a variety of grooming services for dogs in a secure, friendly environment. 

Whether your dog needs a simple bath or a fancy haircut, our capable groomer can provide just about any service your pet needs to look and feel their best.
