Pride and Groom Pet Salon

Pets leave our salon feeling healthy, happy and clean...

Pride and Groom Pet Salon is making changes under new ownership. The salon specializes in pet grooming Austin residents seek, including dog grooming in Austin, cat grooming and pet boarding in Austin. The salon is still located in Manchaca (South Austin) but has moved from Croydon Loop to a cozy building on FM 1626 near Manchaca Road.

As of January 2012, the salon is now owned by Vicki Koonce, a South Austin resident who has a passion for animals. She is ready for the challenges that come with owning a business: “I’ve always loved animals, and I now have the chance to work with them on a regular basis. I also love the business aspect. Pets leave our salon feeling healthy, happy and clean, and that’s a great feeling.”

After acquiring the salon, Vicki welcomed a number of Austin dog groomers with a loyal client base including Cat Tucker and Lisa Novak. She believes the new groomers will bring reputable attention to the salon, as well as new clientele and a need for expansion.

Pride and Groom offers cat grooming, a service many groomers are now refusing. Vicki said, “Bathing and grooming a cat can be tricky, but we’re up to the challenge.” In addition to luxury grooming and boarding services, Pride and Groom also offers pet sitting in Austin, Manchaca, and Buda and a pick up/drop off pet taxi for nearby residents.
