Our Salon

Classic Grooming had its meager beginnings in a small 400 square foot facility behind the Panther's Stadium off Morehead Street in February 2003. We perfected our grooming skills and our services were so much in demand that we needed a facility 10 times our original size! In 2008, we expanded our services to a 4,000 square foot space, where we are currently, in the Historic SouthEnd neighborhood.

Classic Grooming’s facility now offers state of the art equipment and is conveniently located right off South Boulevard or South Tryon Street. With eight groomers under our roof and an exclusive doggie fun center, our average grew to 50 dogs a day.

We are proud members of the National Dog Groomers Association of America and adhere to its Code of Ethics. We also take great pride in our current 100% rating with the Mecklenburg County Health Department . . . a rating we achieved and held for the past seven years.

Our retail area consists of unique and fun items, as well as a full line of holistic dog foods, from Orijen, Acana as well as Fromm. Other items that we are proud to represent:

We strive to always bring products to you that are safe, fun and enjoyable for your family pets.

Proper Coat Care

Classic Grooming and Isle of Dogs believe that proper grooming care of your dog can be a rewarding experience that will result in not only a healthier dog, but a healthier relationship between the two of you. However, proper care is largely misunderstood, and its importance often underestimated. Our philosophy is simple: keeping your dog clean and well-groomed promotes good health. But it goes well beyond hosing your dog in the backyard or having her nails done at the salon. It requires the proper products and techniques

For years, dog owners have been under the misconception that bathing too often is bad for their dog’s coat. However, this myth is the consequence of poor grooming practices: using harmful household soaps, ultra-cold garden hose water, or human shampoos with inappropriate pH balance. With quality products made for dogs, like the Isle of Dogs grooming system, a dog can-and should-be bathed as often as needed, even on a daily basis. The results will be worth it.

Isle of Dogs - Key Ingredients

Developed over 20 years ago in England, Isle of Dogs grooming products combine the finest quality raw materials into a revolutionary emulsion. As a result, oils are spread evenly through your dog’s coat and become absorbed into the hairs for a healthier shine even after rinsing. The two following ingredients are featured heavily throughout the product line.

Evening Primrose Oil: Rather than using extracts, we use only pure cold pressed Evening Primrose Oils (EPO) in order to provide the oils and related fatty acids that will enhance and maintain your dog’s coat.

Royal Jelly: A natural substance produced by worker bees to feed their queen, Royal Jelly contains high levels of proteins, lipids, and vitamins that promote regeneration. For queen bees, it means living 40 times longer than nurse bees. For your dog, it means a richer, fuller coat and even hair regeneration where there may be hair loss.

Doggy Daycare

Classic Grooming Salon and Spa relocated in August 2008. Now with 4000 Square Feet, we offer a new Doggie Fun Center and Daycare. Keeping our limit to only 10 dogs per day, our smaller playgroups provide more individual time with your pup.

With our introductory offer, you will receive TWO FREE Days with your 1st package with us.

Canines have influenced my life as long as I can remember. My Mother had a sincere passion for them and they were always a part of our family. From poodles to chow chows, and mixed breeds too, we loved them all.

      My passion for pets began almost before I can remember. Coming from a pet-loving family, we always had dogs and cats in our home. This made it easy for me to get away with bringing home practically every homeless puppy or kitten to cross my path!

        Charline is a client of ours, who didn't have to think too long about a position we had open for a Grooming Assistant. We are so glad she decided to join us, as her calming and positive attitude is especially welcomed by all of our four legged clients.

          I graduated from the grooming school; It's a Dog's World, in Phoenix, Arizona where I received my first professional training in grooming. From the very first day of grooming school, I knew that this was the perfect career for me.

            Deciding to work for Ron at Classic Grooming was a no brainer. Becoming a groomer was a wonderful thing for me. Working so closely with animals has helped me become a kinder and more compassionate person in all areas of life.

              I think I have always had an affinity for animals, especially dogs. My mom is a big animal lover as well, so we always had dogs in our home. Being around them is such a natural thing for me.

                                    Jack is such an adorable dog. One of the cutest things he does at the shop is he celebrates each groom that his Mom (Emily) completes. As soon as she is finishing her groom dog, Jack knows with the bandanna or bow added, she finished grooming and he barks with joy.
