I was referred to Shear Art by another groomer because one of our dogs is a Norwich terrier and her hair needs to be hand stripped and not many groomers do this. Wow, was I lucky to meet Caroline! My husband and I have taken our dogs to various groomers in the area and never have we been so pleased until we went to Shear Art! Caroline is the best there is!! She went over every detail, even showed me a book on styles for our dogs type, and then she cut them exactly how I wanted. We couldn't believe how amazing they looked, they smelled fantastic, looked awesome and their hair was so soft and 3 weeks later it's still soft. People have even commented on it! Needless to say we will never take our dogs anywhere else! Both our dogs are rescues and have different hair types.. Raleigh, the Norwich, has a course golden hair that needs stripping. Bundles, the Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu/Maltese, has soft white hair with some wave. Caroline made them both look the best we've ever seen! Do yourself and your pets a favor and take them to Shear Art. I almost forgot to mention, her salon is the best I've ever seen, extremely clean and calming for your pet. My dogs were not nervous with Caroline, as they have been with other groomers, she and her salon put my dogs at ease!

Shear Art is the BEST in the Coachella Valley, because of the owner Caroline. She is so knowledgeable when it comes to most all animals, and her years of experience and love for them is exceptional. (She also raises Llamas!)
I have been bringing in my Bengal kitty for about 2 years now, and he honestly loves the bath time with her, I can't do it. When I pick him up, he's purring and looks like a show kitty. The new salon is warm, welcoming and "state of the art" which offers pure pampering for your pets!

I first met Caroline when she was working at another shop. She was above and beyond ANY groomer I have worked with in years. She helped me with my home grooming and handled the grooming at that shop--both dogs loved her. When she opened her shop, we followed. The dogs (and I) love the new shop! It is conveniently located, bright and cheerful, very clean, quiet and comfortable. Caroline provides a level of personal attention that I have not found with other groomers. The dogs look great when she has done her magic. What I notice most is how the dogs respond to Caroline. They run into the shop to greet Caroline and are playful and happy when I pick them up. Beautiful, happy animals!

We couldn't be happier to have found Caroline as she does a wonderful job on our labradoodle. And we couldn't be happier for Caroline that she now has her own business. We will do our part to help assure her success, since she always gives Morgan very special care. And she happily puts up with our very picky requests about how we want Morgan's hair to be cut and makes sure that he is clean, healthy and looking like a champ.

After trying a few different stylists there, I found that not only was she the best, she gave my children such love that I was hooked. I am so glad she has her own place now where my children get treated like royalty. I know most people think of their dogs as their children as I do, so I would recommend only going to Caroline to get the love, care, attention that they need.

Carolyn is the best! I was so tired of taking my Yellow Lab to the groomer and having him come home 7 hours later, dying of thirst, and damp. My husband heard about Carolyn from a friend and now we tell all our dog lovin' friends about her. Our Yellow Lab had the deluxe bath and I couldn't believe the amount of under coat she removed. I swear he came home 5 pounds lighter. ( that's a good thing ).

Wish I could book an appointment for myself. My dogs have had better spa days than I have had and I have paid a fraction of the price for absolutely wonderful service. I have a large dogs, Saint Bernard, Mastiff, Basset Hound, Great Danes. They had never been to the groomer before and they did wonderfully. The salon is so relaxing and Caroline is so attentive would of thought they had been going forever. And the way they looked and acted after. So beautiful and happy. I let Caroline work her magic, not knowing what to expect and I was amazed at how she does her work. It truly is a work of art. Shear Art is no lie.

Caroline is the absolute best groomer we've ever had for our "girls" Stella and Luci. We knew her prior to her opening up her own shop -- and as good as she was working for someone else; she shines as owner/operator of her own "salon" . I call her the "dog whisperer" . Her salon is so clean, so bright and is filled with great vibes - our girls don't balk going thru the door - because they know they are in a good place. Our scampy terrier mix saves from the shelter are transformed into little princesess' when they have their spa day at Shear Art. We are so happy Caroline opened her own place - it's the best.

As soon as you walk into the very clean Shear Art Pet Salon, Caroline (the owner) greets you and your pet with a very calm demeanor and a smile... she just LOVES animals and it shows! Lola (our 2 year old Labradoodle) is very happy to see Caroline; which has not always been the case at other groomers we have used. She is very open to your special grooming requests (no matter how small) and we have recommended our friends to use her for their pets and there is no better reference than that! Lola looks fabulous when we pick her up from Shear Art Pet Salon and we are so pleased with this groomer, as I am sure you will be too...

I have been looking for a groomer who knew exactly what to do with my Maltese for the past six years that I have lived in the Desert. From the moment you walk in the door you realize that the Salon is professional. My dog was groomed exactly as I asked, with what I call all the essentials done - bathed, cut, nails trimmed, ears cleaned, etc. I am totally satisfied.

Finally! A groomer that I can talk to directly, make my preferences known and leave confident that she understands. Caroline listens, aims to please, and does an extremely professional job in her squeaky clean salon. My 5 year old Aussie is extremely shy and thoroughly unaccustomed to my leaving her; I appreciate Caroline's sensitivity to my dog's special needs in this regard. An added value is the salon's open floor plan where you can clearly see the ideal conditions in which your dog will be groomed. Trust your instincts, and you will know the instant you walk through the door that your best friend will be well taken care of here!
