At Happy Trails we offer to our grooming visitors a "play while they wait experience". Why make our canine visitors sit in a cage while they wait their turn to be pampered. I can't exactly offer 'cage-free' grooming, but I can offer playtime and a social experience to my grooming visitors. As long as your dog is comfortable hanging out with the other dogs, then he or she is welcome to play and socialize until it is his/her turn to be pampered. I feel that the dogs groomed at Happy Trails are more relaxed and less stressed from the grooming process because grooming has become a positive experience. Happy Trails grooming isn't just a time for your dog to get "beautified", but it's a 'play day' as well.
