The staff at most grooming shops, including the "big box" salons, are paid on commission. This puts the priority on a higher volume of pets through the door every day, because more grooms directly means more money for each groomer. At As the Fur Flies, we do things a little differently.Read More
Press Release - For immediate Release
Austin’s Cats and Dogs are in for a treat
Austin, TX - November 29, 2018: Proudly announcing the recent opening of “As the Fur Flies” - a day spa for pampered pets in the heart of the Eastside in Austin, Texas. The pet grooming salon is geared towards dogs and cats of all breeds and ages, as well as those with disabilities or behavioral issues.
As The Fur Flies is dedicated to making the grooming visit a pleasant one for any pet. Each pet visit is tailored so he or she feels comfortable during the process and leaves relaxed and happy. Only state-of-the-art equipment is used for maintaining and grooming the coat, skin, nails and ears. Appointments are scheduled so the expert groomers have plenty of time to deeply interact with the animal and allow time for them to get used to the environment, equipment and procedures the animal might be afraid of. There is no rushing of clients through appointments.
Besides being a destination for pampered dogs, the salon is also specialized in cats. Cats have different grooming needs than dogs and that’s why the staff at As The Fur Flies are experts in cat grooming as well. They are allowing plenty of time and patience so their cat clients leave happy, relaxed and clean. Last but not least, pet owners can relax as well since As The Fur Flies has large windows and doors looking into the grooming area where at any point, the pet owner can observe the appointment through a window. Pet owners are also welcome to stay to observe the grooming process at any time if they wish.
An in-store and an online boutique offers unique products that are handmade from small businesses, including customized collars and keychains to specialized dog cologne and dental spray.
Founder Nancy Rich came up with the idea for As the Fur Flies when she was a student at the Michigan School of Canine Cosmetology over 16 years ago. Since then, she has worked in a variety of salons and has managed a boarding kennel. While she mainly manages the business side of the salon, she also specializes in working with cats.
As The Fur Flies is open Monday - Saturday from 9am-5pm; appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcomed as well. Location is 2801 E. 5th Street in Austin. www.asthefurfliesaustin.com. firstname.lastname@example.org. p: 512.502.5112
