Most have heard of mobile dog groomers that come to your home with a big van or truck converted into a shop where they groom your dog parked by your house. But Rags To Riches Dog Spa is different in that a professional groomer comes to your house, and will groom your pet in your house! All you need to have is a spare room, garage, or any small to medium sized open space in your house to set up the grooming table with an electric outlet nearby for the clippers. If you'll provide a trash bag & broom, I'll gladly clean up after the grooming is over so you don't have to.
What are the benefits of "In-house" grooming?
1) Convenience- Because I will come right to your house, you can stay at home, and not have to worry about dealing with traffic, arranging drop-off, pick-up and an anxious dog wondering where he/she is going.
2) Comfort for your pet- Some dogs can get uneasy, frightened and agitated when they get groomed at a shop with unfamiliar people, pets, sights, smells, and surroundings. But I will groom your dog in the place it is most familiar with and comfortable - your home!
3) Cleanliness- Your pet is the only animal that is being groomed at the time, so no contamination from other animals, disease, insects and parasites!
4) Less Stress- More familiar surroundings and quiet settings reduce stress for your pet, especially for those with separation anxieties.
Rags to Riches Dog Spa was established in Victoria B.C in 2009. I wanted to create a Dog Grooming business that would be of the utmost benefit to your family member. I feel that the dogs should be in a relaxed, stress-free environment in the comfort of their own home! While making the owners at ease by being able to be a part of their grooming experience.
Why am I one of the lowest around?
You must think...the higher I pay for the service...the more experience they have?
I grew up on a farm and had animals all my life. I started experimental shaving on my poodle named Tiger when I was 14 years old.
I have worked at vet clinics...worked at pet shops and grooming shops.
I have ran this business in Victoria B.C for 8 years now.
I am charging low prices because being mobile...my costs are low.
I really care about animals and want them taken care of. I would rather charge less and know that the client will call me often enough to take care of their fur balls. ..than not be able to afford it and the dogs suffer with matting.
I would like to thank you for taking the time to view the website. I hope that I can offer my services to you and give your best friend the best grooming experience that I can! PLEASE, feel free to call or e-mail any questions or concerns that you may have.

Beware of the Dog
Upon entering a small country store, a stranger noticed a sign saying DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG! posted on the glass door. Inside a harmless old hound dog was asleep on the floor besides the cash register.
He asked the store manager, "Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?"
"Yep, that's him," he replied.
The amused stranger inquired, "That certainly doesn't look like a dangerous dog to me. Why in the world would you post that sign?"
The owner responded, "Because, before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him."
