How is Zen Dog Grooming Different
Cage-free dog grooming

Zen Grooming is located in the back of a private residence in Springfield, Virginia. The home setting with access to a fenced back yard helps to reduce dogs' stress and keeps overhead low, allowing us to offer a more affordable grooming price. Below are the ways in which we are unique:


  • Safety -- Nervous dogs are groomed safely with proven techniques such as positive reinforcement and special positions that make it hard for the dog to squirm or bite. Difficult dogs are not held down by one or more groomers as they are in traditional salons.

  • Attention to the individual needs of each dog -- Each dog is different and our groomer takes the time to learn what works best for each individual dog while lowering their stress.

  • Low-stress environment -- The grooming environment is quiet and "zenlike." Because only one dog at a time is present at the salon, they are groomed quickly and gently. They don't have to wait in crates or experience the stress of being around other dogs and humans. And dogs who are getting too stressed during the grooming process get periodic breaks to help reduce their anxiety.

  • Cage free and only one dog is groomed at a time -- No cages and only one dog is present at the salon at a time. Clients who arrive for their appointments early wait in their car so client dogs don't have to encounter other dogs.

  • Dogs are ready in less than two hours. No long waits without food and water while multiple dogs get worked on simultaneously. The sooner a dog gets home, the happier they will be!

  • We give back! -- Zen Grooming gives 5 percent of its proceeds to local dog rescues and routinely provides free grooming to rescued dogs.


" Sabina was patient with teaching me how to groom our reactive dog.  I learned a lot!"

Toby’s Owner

"My dog is snappy, so having a groomer that I can come to on a regular basis has been a lifesaver! "

Starbuck's Owner

" I've taken my dog to other grooming shops and have been upset with how stressed my dog is after the grooming.  My dog is much happier with Zen Grooming."
