During the peak of the coronavirus pandemic, The Ruff Life Mobile Grooming Salon was able to stay open and assist many pet owners who were struggling to groom their pets themselves. The Ruff Life had many new customers reach out to them through their website and take advantage of their contactless services.
"During quarantine, I feel like a lot of pet owners, did a lot of homeowners and they realized how much goes into it," said Tiffany Mikulewich, groomer. "How difficult it is, how often it needs to be done, I think that was a big thing with grooming and quarantine."
The mobile salon caters to cats, dogs, and even rabbits. Services include baths, blowouts, haircuts, nail trimmings, and even berry facials.
"Let me tell you that they get better spa days than I do myself," said Erin Margiotta, the customer. "They are all excited; they love all the girls that come here."

They're looking forward to finding more clients who can benefit from there stress-free services that will keep your pets clean and calm.
