COVID-19 Update: Due to the Stay at Home Order and mandated closure of nonessential businesses, Natural Touch Grooming is closed until further notice. Please contact your veterinarian for any needs requiring nail clippers, blades, or scissors on your dog. I hope to be back in the shop soon. Stay well!

PROSPECTIVE NEW CLIENTS
Deirdre Mandryk has enjoyed the companionship of Standard Poodles since childhood.

She has a background in dog training and enjoys training her German Shepherd Dog who earned her BH (Begleithund) in 2014. Deirdre opened Natural Touch Grooming in 2011 as a home-based dog grooming shop in State College, PA and relocated to a Philadelphia storefront in 2015. Deirdre is happy to bring her passion to Philadelphia to groom dogs in a positive, healthy way.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Grooming costs vary depending on the breed, size, and coat condition of each dog. Please see the PRICE LIST for the best estimate to groom your dog.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Small dogs generally take 1 ½-2 hours to be groomed. Large dogs take between 1-3 hours.
DO YOU GROOM CATS?
No. While I love cats, my training and expertise is with dogs.
DO YOU GROOM LARGE DOGS?
Yes! However, grooming large dogs takes a toll on the body. To ensure that I can keep grooming for a long time, I prefer to groom dogs under 70lbs. Exceptions can be made.
MY DOG IS AGGRESSIVE WITH OTHER DOGS. WILL THERE BE OTHER DOGS THERE?
Dogs are groomed individually with the salon reserved especially for them. Dog-aggressive dogs are welcome.
MY DOG HAS SENSITIVE SKIN. WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Natural Touch Grooming uses gentle, all-natural products free of harsh chemicals and dyes. For dogs with sensitive skin, I use a natural oatmeal conditioner recommended by holistic veterinarians.
MY DOG DOESN'T FEEL WELL. SHOULD I STILL KEEP OUR GROOMING APPOINTMENT?
Natural Touch Grooming is dedicated to maintaining a healthy environment for dogs. If your dog is under the weather or exhibiting symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, sneezing, coughing, or high temperature or has had contact with dogs with these symptoms, please reschedule your appointment for a later date.
Thank you for your interest in Natural Touch Grooming. At this time, Natural Touch Grooming cannot accept new dogs. It is Deirdre’s intent to build good relationships with dogs through consistent grooming with individual attention. While she would like to accommodate all grooming requests, quality over quantity of grooming is the goal. If you are interested in becoming a client and having your dog groomed by Deirdre in the future, please sign-up for the waiting list.
