Jasper’s coat gleams after a trip to Patrick’s. No one else has been able to touch his nails, but Patrick’s expert staff take their time and give us great advice about how to make it easier for Jasper the next time.

Response from business owner

Ellen, we're so grateful to hear that you and Jasper loved his session! We love helping him shine and going at a comfortable pace during grooming sessions.
