In Phoenix, keeping your pup looking their best requires finding a great groomer to give them a good scrub. In addition to cleaning your dog’s fur, an effective groomer will also trim your pup’s nails and may even do things like anal gland expression (although it's best to consult your Phoenix vet on this) to keep your furry friend looking and feeling great.
Mobile groomers are also growing in popularity and prevalence and can be a great option depending on your schedule. Here are the best dog grooming places in Phoenix to get your pup looking like their best self.
Best dog grooming in Phoenix
1. Doggy Daze

Price: Non-haircut $30-$70; haircut $50-$95
Doggy Daze’s non-haircut option still includes an ear cleaning, nail trim, and gland expression, something that doesn’t always come standard in many grooming facilities' baseline option.
