Now we have him on a 5 week schedule with her - thanks Avery and A Diamond in the Ruff for providing such a needed service and making Corey feel special!"

and her staff. Dawn and everyone at Diamond in the Ruff are very professional and caring . Their love for dogs is evident in the manner they treat their "guests" . Our dog
is very excited each time she goes to Diamond in the Ruff . She can't wait to play with her human and canine friends . She comes home happy and tired ( we are grateful for that! ).

"I am on my 2nd generation of dogs at A Diamond in the Ruff and feel totally confident when I drop off my dogs Cannon and Buster.
I know that they gets lots of love and kindness while being groomed and always come home looking and feeling great. I always felt totally confident

motivated individual with special talents. I would highly recommend her personally and professionally!"

"I have known Dawn Giovannucci since 1996. Dawn has devoted much of her time in either a professional or
volunteer capacity as a true dog lover. Not only does she have a special, loving way with her canine friends,
she is tremendous resource to her clients and friends when help or advice is needed. She truly loves the work
she does, and anyone who has the opportunity to seek out Dawn's talents will be greatly appreciative.
I endorse any work Dawn takes on in the capacity of caring for dogs. It has been a great pleasure knowing
someone who truly embraces her natural talents and loves the wonderful work she does.

Here's some quotes from around the web...
"It's more than a salon or doggie day care, it's more like a boutique spa for your favorite friend. Dawn is great and her staff is top notch. My dog loves going to see her "auntie" Dawn. As an owner of a large dog, it's nice to see over sized cages for naps as well as a large playroom just for the big dogs known as the "Barker Lounge". Small dogs have their own "Palace" that is suited for their needs also"
"My Bichon Frise has been seeing Dawn and her staff for grooming for years. He is always so comfortable with her. She has such a magical way with the animals and her grooming abilities are truly wonderful!"
"I loved this place! There's no place like it around and the people are great! I highly recommend this place for grooming or day care!"
"This place was amazing as soon as I walked in I felt instantly relaxed. It was painted a nice color green. The facility was wide open. High ceilings and skylights in the daycare rooms really gave it a nice feel. The staff was kind, knowledgeable and receptive. There was even a tray of Dog cookies set out. What a cute touch!"
"I wouldn't take my dog anywhere else. We did a lot of research before choosing A Diamond in the Ruff for day care and grooming, and I'm glad we decided on this facility. They really are a "breed" above the rest and they all show it in the little details they do on a regular basis.
"My husband and I recently moved to the area and noticed A Diamond in the Ruff one night after we got a bite to eat next door! I called the next day and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. They are easy to get to, their prices are reasonable and I felt bad taking my dogs out
of daycare when we moved. After researching all the places in the area I was still the most impressed with them so I signed my dogs up! We also had them groom the dogs in their "spa" and we were very happy with that service as well. The dogs are happy and so are we, so thanks to A Diamond in the Ruff Staff!!!"
