Thank you for visiting Hair Of The Dog!My name is Melody Fuller, and my world revolves around my dogs. That includes my clients dogs and my own dogs. When your dog is groomed here, we treat your pet with love and respect for his/her comfort and safety.Dogs have owned me my whole life. I began showing and breeding Doberman Pinschers in 1976 and then Mastiffs in 1984. My kennel name is FANTASY MASTIFFS. I have been showing in obedience and conformation since 1976 and training dogs professionally in obedience since 1978. In 1992, I graduated from the New York School of Dog Grooming and opened HAIR OF THE DOG in 1993. I am very proud to be a certified groomer and continue my education in all courses dog-related, to give you the best service possible. We groom with LOVE & positive reinforcement and a gentle hand. We choose the highest quality shampoos and conditioners designed for your pet's safety. Dogs are dried on the table for 80% of their drying time, then we use "passive-drying" for the final grooming process. We do NOT use heated cage dryers. Your dog can expect to have a 2 to 3 hour spa treatment while in our care.
Our Dog Bakery
In 1995, I introduced Jagger's Doggy Deli into my shop. After grooming,all dogs leave with a rawhide lollypop and we had run out of them. Since it was October, I baked my first dog cookie in a Pumpkin Spice flavor and the dogs loved it! When clients told me that even the finickiest dogs were loving these cookies, I began creating more flavors and we now have a gourmet dog bakery with over 20 flavors for our clients to choose from. We are certified by the PA. Dept. of Agriculture and we are a PA Preferred company. In the summer months, from July to Nov, Jagger's vends at the Wilkes Barre Farmers Market on the Square, so the salon is closed on Thursday.
