I have had nothing but good experiences with Happy Go Lucky Pet Salon. Every time I take my Cocker Spaniel in for grooming the shop is clean and smells good, the people are friendly, and my dog comes out looking and smelling fantastic. As long as I am in this area, I won't take my dog anywhere else for grooming.

My parents have been customers of Happy Go Lucky's owner, directly or indirectly, for close to a decade -- first when he worked at Dogs4U, then when he split his time between two animal hospitals at opposite ends of Longwood. We are all delighted that he finally has his own shop!

Before my parents' dog, Ben, passed away, he had skin tumors for several years. Other groomers didn't want to be bothered dodging them with the clippers; but Lazarus felt Ben deserved to look as good as any younger dog, and patiently gave him a neat haircut without ever injuring him. Also, as Ben gradually lost his ability to jump in and out of the car and my parents were less able to help him, Lazarus or Dave would get him in and out of the car. Mom and Dad's other dog, who passed away before Ben, was very particular about being messed with, and would sometimes try to bite, especially if you touched his feet. Again, Lazarus was able to deal with this without injury to himself or the dog. Lazarus is one of those people who just naturally deals well with animals.

When we visit Florida, our dogs go to Lazarus as well. One visit came shortly after we adopted a Chow from the shelter. He had been partially shaved at the shelter due to matting. We had had him bathed and brushed at other salons on a couple of occasions, with no mention from the groomers that anything else was necessary. Lazarus recognized that the Chow's undercoat was beyond redemption, and was the cause of his incessant panting. He stayed on the phone as long as it took to convince me that a full shave was the right thing to do for my dog. It took me a while to get over the "hairless Chow" look, but LAZ WAS RIGHT! The dog's personality actually changed when he wasn't constantly overheated! And I must add that the quality of the clip was impressive -- no uneven spots anywhere. Our last visit was six months ago; it's time for another trim, and I dread taking him to anyone but Lazarus!

Our elderly German Shepherd, who had been intractably stinky for years, is now also six months beyond his Happy Go Lucky grooming, and still smells pretty good! He's not shedding nearly as much either. I have no idea what they did that nobody else did, but it worked!

When you make your appointment, be sure to tell them if you or your pet have allergies, so they don't use cologne or other irritants.

Although they didn't (as of 3/06) include natural pet products in their retail product selection, they are philosophically supportive of natural rearing.

The "fine print":

~ Se habla Espanol
~ Visa/MC accepted
~ All breeds and sizes of dogs and cats welcome
~ Pickup/delivery available (limited area, small fee applies)
~ Posted hours are Tuesday-Saturday 7:30am-5:30pm but occasionally differ; call ahead to get this week's schedule.

PROS: True animal lover who is good at what he does
CONS: Shop is a bit hard to find
