Why Sharon's Pet Grooming?
"My salon is small and personable. Unlike some places, you will know who is grooming your dog. I believe that an essential part of providing grooming service is building a personal relationship with my clients, so that you will receive personalized service, and never be treated like a number. My goal is to greet all of my canine and feline clients by name.
Do you have a pet that is elderly or has special needs? Your pet is welcome any time and will be treated with the utmost care and compassion. Your pet will never be left unattended while in my salon. I also have special equipment designed to help pets who have trouble standing for longer periods get through the grooming process safely and comfortably."

Nail Trimming: Dogs and cats need their nails trimmed in regular time intervals. Pet nail clipping is an important part of your pet’s basic grooming needs. For many owners, the idea of cutting their pets’ nails is followed by a feeling of worry. Many cats and dogs also hate to get their nails clipped. It does not have to be this horrible. Any pet owner in the Mankato surrounding area can turn to Sharon's Grooming to get the most proper pet nail clipping service.
Bathing: Our pet bathing services include the following: Nail clipping, ear hair plucking and cleaning, bath, anal gland expression, blow dry, and brush/comb out. We offer bathing services by appointment and by walk-in if our schedule permits, which it usually does! However, if you need a specific drop off and pick up time, we strongly encourage you to make an appointment so that we can meet your needs.
Hand-scissored Cuts: Here we have different grooming techniques to make your pet look like a star. Along with using clippers, we also do hand scissoring. Hand scissoring consists of only using the scissors to style your pet, whether it is only a trim or a full hair cut. Hand scissoring is a way of making your dog look better and it gives your pet a smooth finished look.
Anal Gland Expression: All dogs have glands around the anal area that emit unique smell which helps other dogs to make identification. Empting up the anal glands is an important part of the grooming process in order to prevent them from becoming impacted, or worse off, infected. The anal glands are twin sac-like structures that lie beneath the muscle covering the anal sphincter. If your dog is obese, the sacs will move into the fatty tissue. This will make the release of the anal sac secretions difficult when passing stools. This usually causes the sacs to become dried and impacted, which will thus easily become inflamed.
If you have special-needs animals or need for services other than those listed above, don't hesitate to contact us with your questions or concerns. Please call to make appointments for your dogs or cats. Schedules are about a week out at this time. We fill up fast, so please call ahead to make your appointments.
