Applewood is not only one of the top dog grooming facilities in the city, it has some of the best groomers in the NATION working there. The owner was once a top dog handler and groomer…. he is now a well-recognized judge in the AKC. Best of all, the staff LOVE dogs. There is no better facility for dogs anywhere in AZ.

This place is the Rolls Royce of Dog Grooming! The grounds are impeccably maintained and when you drive into the covered entryway you are greeted by a smiling, amicable dog handler who assists you in removing your Fur Baby from your car. Before you even enter the doors there is a Silver bowl of bottled waters on ice at your disposal (Great touch by the way!!! ). The front desk is very skilled in handling all personality types.  (I have personally seen them diffuse difficult situations with ease.) My dogs are always handled with care and lots of TLC by the talented groomers…
