What Our Clients Say

Michele Wells

Chris is so nice, professional and does a wonderful job. I highly recommend 4 Paws Only Grooming. My dog Nylah has major anxiety and I was looking for a groomer that could provide her a less stress environment and this is the place!!!! I could tell that Nylah took an immediate liking to Chris. Nylah did great getting groomed and was not stressed at all when I picked her up.

Tom Lock

Cris is the most amazing groomer!! Great service, great communication and the only one I’d ever entrust my baby girl with. Thanks again Cris, Callie is always so happy when she comes home.

Tracy Jones

Cris is a gem! My only regret is that I did not stumble across Cris at 4 Paws Only Grooming LLC sooner than earlier this year. I was looking for a new groomer for my fur babies when I stumble on 4 Paws and decided to take a chance assuming it had to be better than either of the Pet***. So happy I did as my babies looked stunning and look stunning each and every visit. Cris is efficient and expeditiously grooms them and does not crate them. We are moving from Maryland and I truly wish I could take her with me.

Danielle Stowe

Cris is wonderful! She is so patient and kind with our little guy. He always comes out happy and wiggly even though he is not a fan of getting his nails clipped. Appointments are always on time and easy.
