They were amazing with my pit bull. Nail trims have always been traumatizing for us both. This was her first salon nail day and she was happy and seemed to be just fine with it. Thanks for being awesome! I highly recommend this place.

Fantastic staff, took my cat Jiji to get his winter coat taken care of for spring. He was not stressed and super comfortable with the groomer, cat is very happy to have his old fur off and have been pampered 🙂

Took my furbaby there and he was in out within 2 hours better than staying in a grooming place for 8 or 9 hours. The prices can be somewhat cheaper but I was just happy my furbaby turned out beautiful 😍

Megan Ross

Pet Stylist

Megan has been grooming at Smoochie Pooch since 2017. The thing that inspired her to groom was a special moment that took place at the Portage salon. She came in and saw two of our groomers coloring a dog. She asked questions and they were more than happy to let her come back and even help! She was hooked from then on! Her hobbies consist of going to the gym, and she loves spending quality time with her friends and family! She has a black Lab, Ricochet, who is her best friend! Just being able to put an amazing finish on dogs and watch them transform during the grooming process, is one thing that Megan loves! She loves to be able to continue to grow in her career every day!
