For dogs that need a Bath & Brush, but don’t need a haircut, members of our Kennel Staff are trained specifically to bath and blow dry dogs in the same methods our professional groomers do. This convenient service allows you to get your dog in for a bath and brush quickly without having to fit into a groomer’s schedule. You can make a reservation for just a bath appointment or tack on a bath to any daycare or boarding reservation.

In addition to a bath, brush and blow dry, here’s a list of what else our Kennel Staff does during a Bath & Brush:
• Trim nails
• Express anal glands
• Clean ears
• Brush teeth (please bring in a personal tooth brush)
• Sanitary trim (on request)
• Trim paws & pads (on request)

For double-coated dogs, we also have special Furminator brushes we use to help loosen the under coat and brush out all the extra hair, which means significantly less shedding after the bath.

Provide your pet with a significantly healthier and more comfortable way of life with consistent and proper grooming. Make an appointment with us and enjoy the difference!

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…
