What Our Clients Say...

"I show my Basset Hounds in AKC conformation events frequently, often taking 4 hounds at a time to a local show and before hand, I take them to For Pet's Sake. The grooming, bathing, nail trimming and filing that the groomers at For Pet's Sake do is quality work, very professionally done and in a manner that is respectful and kind to each animal. Additionally, they work to make time for my dogs regardless of how busy their schedules are, and I can tell that they care about each and every client and his/her animal immensely. I wish For Pet's Sake was closer to where I live, but I'm willing to make the hour long drive for their services and their friendliness."  -Robin
