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!

Dog Grooming

We had dogs who had never been “professionally” groomed. After a bumpy start ; we adjusted the tactic and everything went pretty smooth. She was very patient and understanding. She will be my home groomer for the foreseeable future.

Dog Grooming

She was absolutely amazing; Our dog is very anxious and scared of most people. We chose her because she had explicitly put that she works well with these types of dogs. She was great with our dog, Dax, and made him feel safe enough to lay down in a bathtub. He looks great, like a brand new dog, and all the major shedding is gone. When she left, he was crying for her because he liked her so much. She brought an apprentice who is in training, and she was amazing with him too. They were reassuring him, talking calmly, and giving him positive reinforcement. They were very good, did a wonderful grooming job, and were incredibly nice. We will be scheduling with her again for Dax, as well as our other dog.

I had probably the most difficult dog she has ever groomed, and we managed to get a great cut because of her patience with him.
