    Best groomer! Really takes the time required
    He was very gentle with beans, he took excellent care of her. She's a big dog and he cleaned her up great, got her smelling pretty and she left feeling better. Would recommend and call again for grooming. Michelle

    Blessing in disguise
    Kevin was great! Originally, I had scheduled for my dog to get groomed at another facility, but I decided to take a chance with Kevin. A chance that I'm glad I had taken. The first time Kevin met my dog, Sparkie, he made sure that Sparkie was comfortable with him before foregoing the grooming. Kevin will begin by asking you what type of grooming is needed for your dog. He will tell you the difference between the cuts as well as what is best for your breed. During the entire grooming process, he was very patient with my dog. Sparkie is 9 years old, so my dog gets tired very easily and very antsy. But, Kevin was very patient with Sparkie and did his best to accommodate. He is quite knowledgable about different breeds and what is the correct process for grooming, among care for them. He is also medically knowledgable about skin conditions for dogs, so he will let you know if there is anything out of the ordinary. Another thing is that he was able to identify a mass found in my dog, that I myself couldn't even find. So I'm really thankful for that. **Currently, my dog is getting a cytology test, so we shall see what the results are. Fingers crossed!** As for his personality, he is very friendly. Definitely passionate about his love for his job, as well as his love for animals. It's very easy to keep a conversation going. Definitely ask him about his experiences as a groomer, it's very interesting! Overall, I had a great experience and would recommend him to my friends and family!

    I had my dog groomed, her nails trimmed, and she received a shedding treatment. I would highly recommend Kevin. He was punctual, very patient and gentle with my shy dog. She had some severe matting as she is a sheepdog. He took his time with her and she looks beautiful. I will definitely be using him again.

    Kevin T. Apr 3, 2016

    Hi Patricia, I appreciate your honest review and understand your frustration with the inconvenience of our appointment rescheduling/cancelations within this past week. I'm sorry that both cancelation occurred our first cancelation was indeed due to an unexpected family death of my grandfather. I appreciate your understanding of that cancelation. Unfortunately, our initial rescheduled appointment had to get canceled due to an unexpected inflammation of my leg bones in which has been on/off the past few years after an spinal injury and had just reoccurred yesterday afternoon because it was affecting my right driving leg I wasn't able to make it out to your scheduled appointment and by the time I checked my phone I realized it was past our appointment time and I promptly returned back your call after you'd had contacted me. I should've been more punctual on my end to give you a courtesy call as soon as I could but I wasn't around my phone at the time. All said I appreciate your time and consideration in my service previously. Best Regards, Kevin Tan

    Kevin really loves dogs and his job. It definitely shows in his outstanding work. He had his work cut out for him as my puppies hadn't ever been to a groomer and they are shitzu/chihuahua/poodle mixes. Definitely recommend him and ask that you consider him for any grooming needs.

    Kevin is such an awesome guy, he just makes you feel like family the minute that you meet him. Kevin is very knowledgable about dogs and special needs. Our Golden Retriever got the very best of care in his pristine mobile setup. He came out looking happy and proud (and possibly a little younger too, ha!). He is twelve years old now, and Kevin handled him so gently our dog immediately loved him. We are looking forward to an ongoing relationship between Kevin and our dog Bacon.

    Kevin was very kind and handled my Rajah well, you can immediately tell that he loves dogs. The hair cut was absolutely adorable, she smelled great and looked so cute with her pink bandanna. After her grooming Rajah was filled with energy and ran to every one at home showing of her new style. I a very happy with the results and will definitely continue to use this company for her grooming. *** Thank you Kevin**** :)

    It was my Huskies first time getting groomed professionally and it went so well he did amazing. I liked the fact that Kevin gave the time to get to know my dog Snowball before starting anything. Kevin was really nice! He let's you be there watching if you want and let's you take pictures... You can tell kevin loves what he does. He has lots of patience with dogs. It took lots of time with my dog because he had lots of knotts in his hair. Kevin did not care how long it would take he wanted it done and done correctly. He takes good care of your dog and treats them well. The truck was nice and clean. Love the little gift he gives your dog at the end. I will definitely hire him again.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
My typical process working with a new customer is introducing myself to the customer by phone or text or email. Meeting and assessing the dog in person besides the over the phone questions about the dogs and price quote estimate. I'll text or show my customer proof of certifications if requested by them.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was trained by my father as a kid here and there. I have a high school diploma & studied 3 years of accounting at CSULA before considering the switch to becoming a Professional Certified Dog Groomer and studying at West Coast Grooming Academy & Pet Tech for my Pet CPR & First Aid Care certifications. I'm also an National Board Certified Pet Aesthetician & Skin Therapist specializing in therapy treatment.

How did you get started doing this type of work?
I started this professional career due to a dog I adopted 7yrs ago & passed away from diabetic complication. Also for the compassion and care of animals and being that my father was a groomer as a young man himself too.

I work with all breeds dog, medical, skin ailments, and show dogs! With the exception of aggressive dogs.

I also specialize in hand-stripping of terrier & wired coat breeds dog those takes 1-3hr to work on & multiple sessions for a perfect coat.
