Rita, Psyche and I LOVE you !! This is the first time I have had a mobile grooming done for my baby girl and she was in such bad shape !! So matted up & knotted, being a long haired black cat, it's a MIRACLE how BEAUTIFUL she was when you were done !!!! Now that I am out of the hospital & rehab, I brush her every day so she doesn't have to go through that again !!!! I will call you when Psyche is ready for her summertime trimming !!!! Again, thank you for being so understanding and patient !! 😺😸😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻

My original goal was to become a Veterinarian; I did become a vet tech. Then fell in love with grooming!  I have always had love for animals. I spent my childhood summers at my grandmother’s farm. I have three children and three beautiful grandchildren.

I groom dogs & cats. I have a few of each of my own at home that I love and adore.

My schedule: Tuesdays through Saturdays – 7:00 AM – 2:00 PM

You can’t get any better with Rita!!! She is truly a “ten” in my book.

by Nancy Johns on Pawgo

I’ve been a customer of Rita’s for years. Callie is my third dog that she’s groomed. Callie’s a chihuahua. My other two were a Peek-a-poo and a Shih Tzu. She’s done a fantastic job with all three. You can tell that she loves what she does. I highly recommend her!

by Diane on Pawgo

Rita is the most caring and terrific groomer ever. And she’s an angel. A wonderful lady. Just adore her.

by Gary on Pawgo

Rita does an amazing job with my long hair cat. We get him back looking great, he isn’t traumatized or crazed after his grooming as in the past with a different groomer. She listens, my cat has specific needs for cleanup and she delivers.

by Monica on Pawgo

Rita has been grooming my chihuahua Booty for quite a while and she is wonderful!

by Penny on Pawgo

Rita is the best groomer we have ever used. I can't imagine anyone else ever grooming my dogs.

by Jennifer on Pawgo

Rita cares. Period. Cats can be difficult obviously. But she’s patient and she loves my 2 boys.

by Karine on Pawgo

Rita was wonderful with my 14 year-old long-haired cat with matted hair around his neck and tummy.
She shaved him in a cute lion's cut and he was so happy to be free of his hard mane.
Thank you Rita for being gentle with my baby.

by Marcia on Pawgo

Rita came in August and gave our Teddy the cutest summer haircut. He was nice and cool but still looked good. He is a poodle schnauzer mix and he looked and felt just like crushed velvet. Rita is the best!

by Jackie Baxter on Pawgo

Rita has been grooming my doggies forever, and she is the best!!!

by Fran on Pawgo

Rita is more than wonderful. Our dogs love her and so do we.

by Cindy Copeland on Pawgo

Rita does an amazing job for my cat Oliver. He is a fluffy orange cat with a very mellow disposition and he loves Rita. She gives him a Lyon Cut and he looks so adorable. Rita is always on time and I would never trust anyone else to groom my cat.

by Lisa on Pawgo

Rita does a great job with my mini Schnauzer Zoe. Zoe likes her, which is a big deal! I’m happy to find someone who she trusts to make her look beautiful!

by Cathy Traynor/Karen Giometti on Pawgo

Rita was just wonderful! She took her time with my 17 year old male cat and made the experience less stressful with her kindness. His lion cut looks great! My friend had her 3 year old male cat trimmed also. It was his first time getting groomed and Rita was so loving that he did well and didn't give her a hard time. He received the trim that was just needed. We will most definitely book our cats with Rita again. Thanks so much Rita!

by pat kimble on Pawgo

I am very happy with Rita and the way she cares for Maggie (pekeapoo) when grooming her. Mags gives her a hard time when she tries to groom her face but Rita ispatient and does a great job. Would not hesitate to reccommend Rita to anyone.

by Jo on Pawgo

Love the way our babies look after you groom them. Wouldn’t have any one else groom them. Thanks Rita.

by Trish on Pawgo

Rita’s the best

by Michael S. on Pawgo

Excellent grooming job on my two feisty Maine Coon cats. Although they behaved like caged mountain lions, she was able to do an excellent job grooming. She is very gentle, and somehow managed to finish both jobs scratch free.

by Jan on Pawgo

Rita always does a great job. She is friendly, efficient and my shih tzu really loves her. I do as well. 💕💕💕💕🎈🎈🐶

Rita is a wonderfully kind and conscientious lady. She grooms my Maltese and my Yorker. They look just beautiful when she is finished. We just like her very much and how gentle she is with our girls. Thank you Rita

by Jennifer on Pawgo

Rita is fantastic, she does a tremendous job each time with REMY. She is a definite keeper. Thank you Rita for all you do!!!!!

Rita is the best. Rocco is a squirmer but she always does a great job. This is our second fur baby she has groomed. This is our 17th year together.

by Angie on Pawgo

Rita is wonderful. We have a cavapoo and she always looks her best when Rita is finished. Rita is sweet and noticeably loves all her animals. She listens to what you are asking for and gives good advice for breed specific.

by W.T.Anand on Pawgo

Rita is knowledgeable and the dogs really like her, which is important. She is very punctual and does an excellent job! My dogs are Cavalier King Charles Spaniels - a Tri-Color and a Blemheim.

by Jan on Pawgo

Penelope and I love Rita and don’t know what we would do without her!
Penelope is my 11 year old 19 lb shih tzu whose tail starts wagging when she sees Rita. Rita is not only compassionate and trusty worthy, she is skilled, making Penelope look gorgeous, and can notify you if she has any skin or health concerns I want her to know how much we appreciate her😍🐶

by Jean Peterson on Pawgo

Rita does an amazing job on Bear. She is half German Shepherd and half golden retriever. She is about 13 years old. Rita is so compassionate and her TLC she provides makes grooming Bear worry free! Highly recommend her services .

by Marcia Putzke on Pawgo

We have a 17 lb. miniature schnauzer poodle mix (a schnoodle) and we love how caring and loving Rita is with him. We are always happy with his grooming. Rita is just the best!!

by Chelle Wax on Pawgo

She is the very very very best and Pago is lucky to have her! I don't know what I would do if I didn't have her as my groomer!

Rita is the best. My dogs love her. She always has a little bow to brighten up their collars. We love when Rita comes.

by Fran on Pawgo

Rita is wonderful. Our dogs love her and so do we. She is great with the dogs and such a very nice person. I would hate to have anyone else take care of our dogs.

by Terri Ganem on Pawgo

Rita Kraft has taken care of all of our furry family members for over 25 years. In 25 years she has become a friend who is gentle, caring, compassionate and knowledgable about us and our pups. She always shows our pups so much love. She finishes each grooming with a treat from the treat cupboard. There isn't another groomer that I would consider being with my pups. She's the best of the best. Thanks Rita!

by Pat DeMar on Pawgo

Rita has been our groomer for 17 years and I have been a very satisfied client of hers from day one. She also did my parents dogs and they too were as happy as we are. She really knows o much about our fur family memories and Rocco loves her!

by penny hall on Pawgo

Rita came to us because we have older hounds. and the trip to our usual groomer was just too hard on them. She is the best.....very caring and calm w/the dogs.....plus she grooms beautifully and is done in no time....besure to book Rita well in advance....thanks, Rita

by Melisa on Pawgo

Rita has groomed our beloved Schnauzer Leinie for a couple years now. Her last grooming session with him was especially caring as we knew that Leinie only had a few weeks to live. She was very gentle and sweet with him and he always came back to us looking fantastic. We will continue to request Tina for our new four legged family members. RIP Leinie- he passed over the Rainbow Bridge on February 12, 2018.

by Deborah on Pawgo

Rita is a great groomer and I think she may be a dog whisperer! Nice work.

by Melisa on Pawgo

We have been clients of Rita's for a couple years now and we just love her. She truly cares about our dog, and now that he is in his golden years, she has been so gentle and understanding with him. Thank you Rita!

by Monica on Pawgo

Rita, you did a phenonomal job! I definitely will be scheduling again and have already referred my brother and sister in law to you. Thank you for showing you care !!

by Valerie Berrien on Pawgo

Mikka has never looked better. Sue said your were amazing, and she was right. And that you got her nails trimmed, and she was still happy to go to you at the end of the grooming is nothing short of a miracle. Thank you. Thank you.

by Paul on Pawgo

Rita is the best. Samwise is a bit of a baby when he gets his nails trimmed. Rita hangs right in there through the whining. She has been grooming him for a few years now. Would have no one else take of my Samwise!!

by Rachel on Pawgo

Rita is the best!She truly loves what she does!She has been grooming my dogs for over 10 years!!!!

by Barbara Rosen on Pawgo

I am a new dog owner and my friend Janice Born recommended Rita as a groomer for our Dakota. All I can say is when Rita comes into the house, Dakota is thrilled to see her. We've only had Rita a few times, but couldn't be happier with the results. We won't settle for no one else. Thank you Rita for caring and loving the animals that you do. Your one in a million!!!

by Rick Young on Pawgo

The only groomer that we will ever use is Rita; we have been using Rita for almost 10 years. She is wonderful with our cats and her pleasant professional attitude is charming to both us and our cats. We have even postponed or reschedule trips just to be sure that we can schedule Rita.

by Joan Merkatz on Pawgo

Rita is the best. Used her for at least 16 years on my dog Samson and she does the granddogs. Stanley who doesn’t like anyone will go with her without any problems.

by Lauren on Pawgo

We love Rita! We have used her for many many years (over 17) and would never use anyone else. Molly gets so excited to see Rita when she comes, she absolutely adores her. Rita is the best hands down!!

by Jay and Rita Varty on Pawgo

Rita is a great groomer, we are repeat customers.

Thank you for this message and I a appreciative of the wonderful grooming you've provided for Bode. Please know that I have recommended you on Nextdoor.com, once on In June 2017 and again today. I make it a habit not to click on links, hope that is okay. I will contact Pawgo soon for his next grooming. Thanks! Victoria

by Cheryl on Pawgo

Rita is the best groomer ever! She is wonderful with our nervous, squirmy Maltese. She is friendly, professional and consistently excellent. We wouldn't use anyone else!

by Miriam on Pawgo

Rita has been grooming my cats for over 10 years. She does a wonderful job and, if she has seen any concerning skin issues or other issues, has pointed them out to me so that I could let my vet know. She is great!

by Cathy on Pawgo

Rita is a wonderful groomer and takes special care of all of her clients. We had to say goodbye to our beloved Shaggy who Rita groomed from the time he was a puppy to 16 years old. The last 3 1/2 years he was paralyzed, Rita was loving, kind and gentle with him and took special care with him when she groomed him.

by Bill Long on Pawgo

Rita always does a great job with Dexter .. Keep up with the great work.

by WTA on Pawgo

Rita has been grooming my dogs for many years and is the only groomer that I am comfortable with. She is good to my dogs, friendly, always punctual, and is really great at her job.

by Mary on Pawgo

Rita is the very best groomer. She has groomed my dogs for many, many years. She does an excellent job---no one else can compare! Rita has always been very professional as well as gentle and loving to my Jessie. She is very punctual, kind, and great at what she does.

by peter on Pawgo

Rita is the absolute Best.

by Sherry Michaels on Pawgo

Rita is the best groomer I've had since owning my own dogs beginning in 1970. That's a lot of groomers. Molly is more than a little hyper, yikes her whole way through all procedures. She loves Rita. She hates being groomed, but she'll let Rita do anything. We're moving to Chandler in December and we'll really miss you, Rita.

by Pam Spitler on Pawgo

Rita has been grooming Moorea since she was about 1 year old and she is going to be 16 Nov. 2017. She is the only groomer I have used and feel confident that Moorea is getting a safe, loving, and good grooming with and she always looks beautiful. I have been asked if I would like to have another groomer when Rita has been sick but I prefer to wait until Rita is available. Thank you Rita for treating my furry baby like I do, I know you love her treat as gently as you can. (Moorea is 10 pound white toy poodle and she acts like a 5 year old no one can believe she is 15 years old, she is still full of life and loves to play ball and have me chase her)

by Cheryl on Pawgo

Rita is wonderful! She is the only groomer I will use. We have a wiggley, somewhat anxious, Maltese yet time after time, she makes him look beautiful. He is happy to be with her and we are always impressed with her skill and professionalism.
