The Dog from Ipanema was founded in 1986! Its founder had a simple goal: to provide high quality services to dogs and cats in a clean and respectful environment. The open, colorful and clean space attracted newscasters from around the world. The doors to “The Dog” opened up in August of 1986 to a doggie by the name of “Scandal”, a Chow/Lhasa mix.
Among its many firsts, The Dog from Ipanema always welcomes owners that want to stay with their “babies” during the grooming sessions, all that it takes is an appointment!
The acceptance of owners during the grooming sessions demonstrates the pride that our team members have on their training.
Amongst our team members, we are proud to have past members of GroomTeam USA, International Grooming Competition Judges, Event Organizers, Industry Demonstrators and Educators.
