Customer Tails


I have brought two of my three dogs in to be groomed, (The third is coming in two weeks.) My little yorkie-mix, James Bone, who looked like wolf man, did not do well at another groomer. Melissa did an incredible job with him. He looks smashing now. My Riley, a lab mix, was quite dirty. Looked yellow with a brown face. He actually is white and has a brown spotted eye. Very handsome when she was finished. Reasonable prices, clean, great service. Like I said incredible!!!!


Wonderful experience!

We took our two cats in to be full service groomed and they loved it! They look so beautiful and were so happy after. The price is more than fair for the top notch service!

An Expert on Lhasas!

We were referred to Pooch Parlor last year by the Kinneys. Our Lhasa Todd is a rescue with dry skin and arthritis in his hips. From day one Melissa has treated our boy like one of her own. Because of her own pets, she has a great deal of knowledge on Lhasas and has always groomed Toddy to perfection while also taking care of his special needs. He comes home just giddy about his haircut and prances around to show off! We can't say enough great things about Melissa and the care she gives us and Toddy! We won't go anywhere else!

Best groomer in town!

I cannot recommend Pooch Parlor highly enough! Aujonae groomed our labradoodle Kaytie today and we are thrilled with the way she looks. A lot of groomers can't quite handle the way to shave a doodle without making them looking awful because labradoodles can have some pretty crazy hair! ๐Ÿ™‚ But Aujonae did a fantastic job!! Kaytie is so clean now and smells good and I can she feels sooo much better without all the shaggy-ness going on. I also love that we were able to make an afternoon appointment that works with our schedule, whereas a lot of other groomers required us to drop our dog off in the morning. We will definitely be returning to Pooch Parlor from now on!! Customer for life! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much Aujonae!!

Took my Yorkipoo to Pooch Parlor for the first time today. They were recommended by 2 different friends, and so glad I did. I took him to another place for his first grooming. When I picked him up they charged me extra because he was too excited. It was his first time. If you work with dogs every day you would think you could handle that. Anyway, loved Pooch Parlor. They did so much more for less them I paid at the other place. I am so happy with the way he looks and they have a customer for life.

This was our first time with Pooch Parlor and not only did our boys, Rocky and Rascal look fabulous, they were done in the time frame they said. Great service and our guys never looked better! We will be back! Thank you!

Ladies did excellent job grooming our scottie. My wife loved his christmas scarf. They were very punctual on the time finished. Our dog was very at ease with them.

My Dog Loved his Visit

We are new to the area and looking for a groomer for our Lab Mix. We found Pooch on Google and must say Thanks for advertising because my dog was very happy after his appointment with Melissa. Again Thank You from Ollie and our family. Good JoB!!
We will be back.

The best in town!

I am a first time dog owner for a little over a year now, and I tried so many places in the Salem area and was not happy. I am so glad I found the Pooch Parlor. Not only do they treat my little Coco like the sassy princess she is, but they are super friendly and do amazing work. I will never take my girl anywhere else.

Can't say enough!

I have two labs. Mason is over 100 lbs; they took him in and he looked great after, he can be a handful but they did a great job.ย Can't say enough about how talented Melissa is.

Larry Hunt

The best groomer around!

We have a Husky named Ool that's really a handful but he loves going to Pooch Parlor. Ool gets excited whenever we pull into the parking lot, will RUN into the shop and jump onto the grooming table without being coaxed. Huskies blow their coats twice a year and the result is A LOT of hair. Melissa's grooming and technique eliminates the shedding and leaves Ool looking and feeling like a king.

Romy's been going to see Melissa for over nine years. He hates his bath but he always feels so much better after visiting the shop. My dogs are like my children and I always trust Melissa and Phil to take good care of our kids. I would never take my pups anywhere else!

Best place in town!

My cat Ron Weasley is very picky and I wouldn't take him anywhere else for a bath and a dip. He absolutely loves Melissa!
