Introduction: Hi, I'm Erin! I've spent over 10 years in a few different grooming salons, and during that time I noticed some practices I'd do differently. The word "Irie" comes from reggae music and means something "nice, good, or pleasing," and I strive to make sure your dogs have the most "Irie" grooming experience possible in my care! I opened Irie Gentle Grooming in 2020 in order to help dogs who are severely nervous during grooming, dogs who are older, deaf, blind or otherwise limited in mobility. My services are great for humans with limited mobility as well, I bring everything I need except for the bath/tub and a towel. You don't even need to leave the house! Also great for those working from home, or busy pet parents who simply lack the time to take their pup in and wait for several hours until they can be picked up. What makes Irie different is my gentle, patient, and loving one-on-one approach that most grooming salons don't have the capability or time to provide. I take pride in my patient approach and you would be surprised that your dog is significantly less stressed than a regular salon with kenneling, other dogs and distractions. I can't wait to meet you and your pets! Hablo Español.

Erin did a wonderful job grooming my anxious dog. He felt super comfortable with her after a short amount of time, and thoroughly enjoyed his bath. Erin was prompt, efficient, and helpful - would definitely recommend Irie Gentle Grooming for a seamless mobile grooming experience. Thank you, and see you next time!

Erin did a wonderful job! The dog is so much prettier after her grooming. Erin even gave her some bows behind her ears 😀! We’re all so pleased with her now, and it’s easy to see that she’s happier, too. Thank you! Good job!

Erin did an excellent job grooming our very nervous rescue dog Forrest. She was very patient with him and his groom is excellent. She took her time to brush him out and give him one of the best haircuts he’s ever had. We were very pleased with our experience.
