We have been going to Finishing Touches since 2008. Our dog Guinness was older when we started with Stephanie and she took great care of her. I felt like the grooming was exceptional but also was comforted to know our girl was getting her

When I visited Stephanie??s store with my Yorkies, she explained what had been done by previous groomers (the hair on their legs was very thin due to the use of thinning sheers) and how that could be improved. Stephanie also took her time to ??listen?? to my concerns/questions and thoroughly responded during the consultation. She really values her time with her clients to provide the satisfactory service.
After a first grooming, Stephanie told me one of my babies, Neo was ungroomable! I was shocked to hear that as such thing had never been mentioned before? Second time I dropped my babies for grooming, Stephanie was kind enough to do me a favor to show Neo??s behavior on the table. A moment of truth; Neo was put on the table. WOWOWOWOW, UNGROOMABLE, INDEED! He was jumpy, nervous, and afraid of clipper; this can??t, that can??t, everything can??t!!! I agreed to have Neo touched up/groomed often until he would get better. After several grooming sessions by Stephanie, Neo built trust in Stephanie and has improved his ??technique? of standing still on the table during his beauty treatment. I am glad to have found a calm and assertive groomer like Stephanie who is willing to work with her 4-legged friends patiently.
Additionally, Sonny, millions of thanks for maintaining my babies?? teeth so clean! My vet is always amazed how squeaky clean teeth they have.
Not only the behaviors and the teeth of my babies have improved, but also their looks got so much better! Now my babies have ??pantaloons?? on their legs that flow in the air. Naturally people get stopped by my babies when they walk by!
Many thanks to Stephanie and Sonny for all the efforts and TLC for my 'Pea-Pods'!!

Stephanie and Sonny have groomed all my dogs for the past 19 years, but this review is especially written in honor of my beloved Matsi who passed away last November. They groomed him since he was a puppy and they are one of the reasons that he lived until almost 20 years old. The way that they took care of him, not only grooming wise, (Stephanie gave him his signature ears which everyone loved about him), but the way they treated him when he could no longer stand and understand their voices. They had him arrive before the shop opened so that they could handle him with special TLC. Sonny and Stephanie used to talk to him and coach him on. He was a good boy and he alway left there a happy, handsome, fresh and clean Bichon. He would feel good leaving the salon, and became peppy when he arrived home. As a dog growing from puppyhood to adulthood he was groomed every few weeks, and that helped him have a healthy body and coat. I can never thank them enough for the care they gave my Matsi, and of course all my other dogs.

This is the rare oasis in NYC where the salon owners really know their stuff and truly care about the well being of the animals above all else. I cannot imagine bringing my dogs anywhere else on this planet.

Pros: Stephanie and Sonny are very talented professionals.

I rarely write reviews, but I feel compelled in this case. I have an older, long-haired dachsund mix who has disc disease. He had surgery for it 6 years ago and at that time his vet said he needed to be treated very gently "like Baccarat Crystal" for the rest of his life. He is 12 now, very healthy, and part of that I have to attribute to Stephanie and Sonny. They are the only groomers in town that I would trust with this dog. Stephanie and Sonny have always been very careful with him and have even given him rest time when he is on the table getting trimmed and dried so he doesn't stress his back. Stephanie is not afraid to tell me if she feels he is putting on weight, something I may not notice immediately since I am with him all the time, and something that is crucial for the health of a dog with this condition. I am so appreciative of them both: their caring natures, their excellent grooming techniques and their dedication. I live on the west side, but I would travel as far as I needed to have my dog groomed with them. They are a rarity in any profession, two committed individuals who are extremely passionate about their work. NYC is fortunate to have them.

I have been a loyal customer of Finishing Touches for 14 years and will never have my dogs groomed anywhere else. When I was first searching for a groomer for my Wheaten Terrier puppy, Wheatens were not as popular a breed as they are now, and many groomers did not do a good job with them. A fellow Wheaten owner I met on the street recommended Stephanie to me, but I was a little reluctant to go to Stephanie because at the time her shop was all the way on 58th Street and First Avenue and I lived on the Upper West Side. But, I decided to give her a try and I am so glad I did. My dog came back impeccably groomed, and every time I would pick him up from the groomer and walk him home, numerous people would stop and admire his haircut. Even my vet would often comment on what a good a job she did, not just with the haircut but with cleaning the ears and trimming the nails and pads as well. When I got a second dog, a Portuguese Water Dog, Stephanie and Sonny did a terrific grooming job on him as well. The two dogs would spend the entire day with Stephanie and Sonny and would come out happy and looking terrific every time. Although my Wheaten has since passed away, I still take my Portuguese Water Dog to Stephanie and the haircuts are consistently good every time. I still live on the Upper West Side, but still make the trip to the East Side to have my dog groomed. I wouldn?t think of going anywhere else!! Finishing Touches by Stephanie is a terrific grooming salon and both Stephanie and Sonny take pride in their work and it shows!!

I have been a customer of Stephanies for the past 2 1/2 years. Having been to three other groomers over the past 16 years I find that Finishing Touches excels over all. I have two toy poodles. They spend 5 hours with Stephanie and Sonny, once a month, and return to me looking so beautiful and feeling fine. I just moved upstate approximately 2 hours from the city and have been continuing our monthly haircuts there.
Stephanie treats my dogs as if they were her own with such warmth and gentleness While my dogs are in the salon Stephanie and I discuss what I want done and how they act. Having never done doggie daycare before I met Stephanie, I thought this was a good opportunity to try it. My dogs had a good time there and were watched over by Stephanie and Sonny.
FINISHING TOUCHES is a wonderful dog salon which exudes love, care and thoughtfulness.

Our family is very lucky to have found Stephanie and Sonny at Finishing Touches. They have been grooming all our dogs for the last 15 years. Not easy breeds (Maltese and Bichons.). They have taken ordinary pups, and transformed them into showpieces that honestly stop traffic wherever we go. When i look around my neighborhood, and see how some people never bring their dogs to groomers regularly, it saddens me. If you want to raise a healthy, happy animal, please people, groom them! Don' be cheap! This is an affluent Upper East Side, and if you want your dog to feel and look good, treat them with the same respect you would treat your own bodies. My dogs have lived to 15-19 years old, and i attribute that to our care, commitment, groomer and holistic vet. Stephanie and Sonny are true professionals, who know my dogs well. They let me know if they see any health issues, and treat them as if they were their own. As far as cleanliness, there is no salon as immaculate as theirs. Clean, clean, clean! My dogs adore them, and they are treated firmly, but lovingly. No razors here, only scissor cuts!
One more thing to note. Dogs that come out of this salon don't look like they came from an assembly line. Each one has their own original cut. Each one of mine has their own look and character.
It is not easy to groom a dog, and i believe if the owner does their part, the groomer will do theirs!

Where to begin on Finishing Touches by Stephanie? We started taking our puppy to Stephanie for grooming when he had become frightened of his original groomer. After his first grooming the complements started pouring and we all (especially our puppy) quickly fell in love with Stephanie, Sonny and Kevin. Shortly after we began our grooming we decided to try the day-care as well and we can say with absolute certainty that Stephanie has the best day-care around; personalized attention and lots of love. The hardest part of our recent move was leaving Finishing Touches!

My poor cocker spaniel, Cosmo, had some pretty bad grooming experiences last year. Stephanie immediately understood my request for a trim neat looking dog fit to go hiking in the woods or toot around the filthy streets of NYC. My 3 1/2 year old puppy is not a show dog nor does he need to look like one, the traditional Cocker cut with the long skirt just doesn't fit his lifestyle or ours. She also offered a medicated oatmeal bath to cure the winter dry itchy skin. We were sooo excited when we picked him up, he just looked adorable! Perfect and as requested.

Cons: A Bit Pricey

My two dogs go to Finishing Touches by Stephanie. In their 8 and 5 1/2 years this is the best grooming they have ever had. My poodle mix would always have brown stains around her eyes. Since Stephanie and Sonny have been grooming her, "voila" the stains are gone. It's the way they know to properly groom that makes a world of difference in the way your pet looks. My golden retiever gets compliments on his coat and cut wherever we go. They perform to perfection with everything they do.
The boutique has wonderful items that look "one of a kind". It is decorated beautifully inside and out, and so clean!
