BURBANK, Calif. — Life is becoming easier with several conveniences in reach. But have you ever imagined a pet grooming mobile that travels to your own driveway? Sunny Valley Mobile Pet Grooming (SVMPG), formerly Aussie Pet Mobile, does just that.
“It’s less of a hassle for the owner, and it’s much less stress on the dog since it doesn’t have to be in a cage or go away from home,” says SVMPG owner Chris Akers.
Each van is equipped with air conditioning and a water heater for a controlled environment, which does not depend on outside hookups for water or electricity. Other than the regular grooming process, additional services include: de-shedding treatment, shave-downs, and natural and eco-friendly therapeutic shampoos.
Compared to a pet grooming shop, SVMPG takes a shorter time, and the service is one-on-one.
“It’s really amazing how people have stuck with us for all these years,” Akers says. He believes it’s because the relationships between the customers and the groomers are strong. Some groomers see the same pet weekly or monthly, per request of the customer.
