What is Stress Free Grooming?

Stress Free Grooming is for fur friends who are stressed easily, need a little more time and attention (geriatric dogs and puppies) and/or who are nervous in the presence of other dogs. 

You may add Stress Free Grooming to any groom. Includes:

  • Private Appointments.  Dogs are groomed at a time with our Stress Free option, no other dogs will be in the grooming salon!  Dogs are groomed during their own time slot (like a haircut for you) with kind, attentive care.
  • Your pet is handled only by his/her stylist with the emphasis on grooming being a positive experience. No “assembly line” environment.  No waiting in cages!
  • All natural and organic products!

 Price: $10 in addition to grooming fee

Veronica Dykstra

Veronica Dykstra

Veronica’s kind, gentle, caring demeanor is evident the second you meet her and fits perfectly with our Stress Free Grooming philosophy!

Veronica is a licensed hairdresser who turned her hair styling skills over to the dogs.  She trained exclusively with groomer Amanda Dodson who is one of the best groomers in the area!  Veronica is well known for her hand scissoring skills.  Hand scissoring is an art that is not practiced by most groomers these days and has a more natural, finished look.

Veronica grooms with kind attention to detail.  She would love to meet you and discuss your dog’s grooming needs.

“Veronica was awesome and spent time with me explaining how to brush and comb my new puppy Stella, so she doesn’t mat in between grooming sessions. Soooo helpful”. Ruth and Stella
“Best haircut Nell has ever had – and I mean it literally. Thank you so much! I can’t even begin to tell you how happy we are to have found you. 🙂 Thanks for the great groom and for being so sweet to her!” Carol and Nell
“Picked the fur kids up after a great Zoom and Groom and they are now crashed by the fire, exhausted . No wonder they don’t even look back when dropped off. Only thing missing is the fluffy robe. Thanks for great service once again and we will see you next month for their stay-cation and spa day.” Don, Koshe and Lucy
“I knew Veronica was a perfect match for Dogs Bay Grooming when I walked into the salon one day and she was sitting on the floor, hand drying a dog in her lap, to offer comfort and support to a fur friend who was frightened.” Deb Lewis Owner/Dogs Bay



Marissa’s love for animals is evident in her sunshine smile and warm heart!

Marissa is a 2018 graduate of Paragon School of Pet Grooming and has found her home here at Dogs Bay! What drew her to Dogs Bay was our Stress Free environment, which is in total alignment with her gentle spirit and desire to make grooming a positive experience for every fur friend. Marissa loves using trigger point massage to help calm the dogs during their groom and it really works!!

Marissa works Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. She would love to meet you to discuss your fur baby’s grooming needs

“My dog Brody hasn’t been to a groomer in a very long time because he’s very shy with new people and experiences. I decided to try the stress free grooming at Dogs Bay and Brody was wagging his tail the minute he met Marissa. She said he wagged his tail the entire time. He came home happy and smelling soooo good. I loved the report card Marissa sent home with him too. We will be back!”
