In The Dog House

We are a dog grooming salon, retail store, doggy daycare, and dog training center in the heart of downtown Northfield, Minnesota. We are a family owned business and proud to have such great co-workers and customers who make this job so enjoyable. You will find a clean and friendly atmosphere in which we take pride in caring for your furry family member(s) like they are our own.



All of our bath and grooms include teeth brushing, nail trimming, and ear cleaning. We work with big, small, long, and short haired dogs of all breeds. Your friend is then professionally groomed to look their best. A pretty bow or stylish bandanna is also included.

We sell and favor España SILK, an all natural shampoo and conditioning brand that gives your dog a healthy coat while maintaining its natural luster. We also have  several other quality products available.

Our priority is the safety of your dog and to ensure that their grooming experience is a positive one. Please let us know if there's anything we can do to make your furry friend more comfortable during the grooming process.
