Dogs certainly know when they are clean and looking good. A well-groomed dog (or cat) is happier, better behaved, healthier, and more outgoing. They feel good when they look good. BellyRubz offers a complete line of fine grooming services to bring out the best of appearance and personality in any breed. We work carefully, we never rush, and we do not overbook. We will take our time and do it right. Our grooming categories may be described as follows:
Bath and Brush
Fundamental service which maintains the appearance and hygiene of your pet. Each Bath and Brush at BellyRubz includes premium shampoos and fine conditioners, blow dry, a full brushing out; every bath we do further includes nail trimming, ear cleaning, and expression of glands. Your dog will look fuller, healthier, more colorful. It will look younger and smell terrific!
Bath and Tidy
This service includes all Bath and Brush items above plus our groomers will trim the hair around the potty and private areas, loose ends, paws, ears and perhaps other places as required. This is less expensive than a full haircut and appropriate for dogs who want to maintain the current length of their coat, but simply need a clean-up and a sanitary trim. It is typically used to remove uneven hair here or there that has grown fast or become out of control.
This is a full haircut from nose to tail usually using scissors and clippers. Haircuts, of course, start with a full bath and brush and include all the elements as described above. You decide exactly how you want your dog to look, how long or short, full bodied or slim, whatever. BellyRubz groomers will work hard to give your pet the individual look you want, to bring out the essence of its personality. Straight hair or curly; long or short; all parts of the dog are addressed.
The single most important element in determining the quality of dog grooming is the experience and artistry of the groomer. BellyRubz employs three of the most experienced and talented groomers in Arizona. Each averages well over 20 years of professional grooming experience. They groom all breeds of dogs, AND CATS TOO! too.

Equally comfortable with large or small dogs, long hair or short, Neyla's expertise at scissoring and shaping make her the perfect fit for Poodles or other breeds where extra care is appreciated. Neyla loves to groom CATS as well, and nobody is better at Mixes and Mutts!!
She has been a professional groomer for almost 30 years. Linda has owed dogs and animals her entire life and she has a sincere and heartfelt affection for dogs, which is communicated in an uncanny way. Her warmth is felt by the animal almost instantly and allows Linda to bring out the very best features of a dog's personality and breed. Linda's expertise is ably demonstrated across a wide range of dogs, from Goldens to Yorkies, from Bichons to Bernese. She enjoys a wide and enthusiastic clientele.
She is a small dog specialist. For over 25 years Judie has established and maintained a practice centered on all the terriers, as well as Bichons, Lhasos, Schnauzers, Maltese, Cockers, and other small to medium-sized dogs. Judie is as gentle and affectionate as any groomer in town. Judie is extra patient and extra careful, therefore, older and special dogs are a great fit for her as well as first-time puppies.
With so many variables, there is no set pricing for fine grooming. Our groomers have the discretion to set individual prices for each dog, largely based on the time required. Factors which determine the price of a service include: size of pet; difficulty of the cut; degree of matting; amount of scissor work, clipping, brushing; disposition of the animal; length of hair; drying time, etc. However, you will find our prices quite reasonable. We will be happy to quote you a price range over the phone, and we invite your inquiries.
