What makes us special

Patrick’s Pet Care is the only fear free certified grooming salon in Washington, DC

The Fear Free Groomer Certification Program enables us to use Fear Free concepts to ensure that the grooming experience is as enjoyable as possible for every pet, every time. We take our time to meet the individual in front of us where she is to teach our guests to love the grooming table, clippers, the bathtub, the blow dryer, grooming shears, the groomer’s loop, and more.
