We are extremely pleased to be part of the Main Line community at 7 Anderson Avenue across from the Ardmore Train Station, bringing you and your pet what we believe to be one of the finest, full-service pet grooming boutiques in the area.
How Ardmore Grooming Station will be operating Low-Risk with Covid-19 still a concern:
We are asking our clients to please meet us outside on our sidewalk or front door for drop-off and pick-up. Clients will call AGS when they arrive and either their groomer, a receptionist, or our bathers will come outside to retrieve their pet(s).
Please keep your collar and leash on your pet until we have secured your pet with our leash.
When your pet is ready for pick-up, clients will receive a text on their cell phone alerting them that their pet is ready for pick-up. We ask that clients return immediately to pick up their pet(s), so that we can keep the number of pets in our shop at a controlled number.
Payment for grooming will be either processed over the phone or by running a card upon pick-up time. We are accepting cash for grooming services and/or tips.
Because of the high call volume now that we are doing outside drop-off and pick-up service only, if we don't answer your call to schedule an appointment with us, it's because we are on another call. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO RETURN CALLS, AS PROMPTLY AS WE ARE ABLE TO, ON THE SAME DAY WE RECEIVE YOUR VM! We appreciate your patience and understanding as this is a very stressful time for everyone. We are doing the best we can to operate as efficiently and as safely as possible.
How we're keeping safe inside our shop:
What makes our shop so Premier?
Our team is here to answer your phone calls and return calls promptly for scheduling your pet’s appointments, confirming appointments, letting you know when your pet is ready for pick up and to answer any questions you might have. Our mission at Ardmore Grooming Station is to do our best to go ‘above and beyond’ to provide professional, courteous and friendly customer service so that you and your pet leave happy after each visit.
Low-Stress Social Environment
Customers love the low-stress, crate-free spa environment at Ardmore Grooming Station and the quick turn-around on grooming services. Your pet will receive grooming services at the time of your appointment, or close to it, with complete follow through – no start and stop grooming at our shop. The pets love the socialization of being with one another and while they can’t tell us, we're pretty sure they really appreciate not being placed in a crate during their visit with us.
Most importantly, our pet stylists are truly some of the best to be found. Their client following speaks for itself. Not only are they super talented groomers with years of experience – each having been named "Best Groomer" on the Main Line and two of whom are former veterinary technicians, but they also have a genuine love and respect for their trade and for the pets they have the pleasure of getting to spend time with every day. We know the challenges of finding a professional pet groomer you will want to continue to use. Once you bring your pet to Ardmore Grooming Station, you won’t want to go anywhere else!
While cats are naturally skilled to groom themselves, sometimes they need a little assistance. At Ardmore Grooming Station, we staff skilled cat groomers who have years of experience. To help make your pet’s experience as low-stress as possible, we have a designated private room for our kitty clients.

Special Needs Pets and Grooming
All of our pets are special. That goes without saying. It’s just that some are more special in that they might have physical challenges, such as their back or front legs are weak or they have joint pain or arthritis, an amputated limb or nerve damage….or, they might suffer from anxiety or emotional-related conditions. Another feature that makes Ardmore Grooming Station so unique is that our pet stylists are experienced in grooming pets with special needs and will go above and beyond to make your pet’s visit a good one.
Sometimes the animals are a bit uncomfortable out of their own surroundings, we understand that and work with them to increase their comfort. It may just mean letting them down off the grooming table for a few minutes to stretch or take a break or it may mean letting them hang on their own, separate from other pets visiting. Sometimes it requires special music to relax them or the groomers talking to them throughout the process. Whatever it might be, you can be assured that our team is in tune with the pets they groom…so you can relax…they are in good hands!

Pets we groom should be up-to-date on shots and vaccines. If you’re a new client, please make sure to bring a copy of your pet’s health record for his/her file.
Please make sure to let us know about any health conditions or concerns – medical, physical and emotional - your pet might have, so our groomers are aware and can ensure proper care. For instance, it’s important to let us know if your pet has an injured or weak limb(s), hip or joint issues, skin allergies, ear infections, moles and warts, tumors, recent surgery, excessive anxiety, etc. We will not perform any grooming services that cause any pain or a level of stress our groomers feel could be excessive.
If our groomers notice a concern or changes in your pet’s health condition, they will be sure to bring this to your attention.
Should your pet need de-matting: Please note: de-matting can be a long and physically demanding process for both your pet and the groomer. For this reason, we recommend that pets with lots of fur see our groomers more frequently than 2 or 3 times per year. If the matts are extensive, our groomers will discuss with you how to best handle. Should your pet need a short clipping, our groomers will always ask your permission before doing so.
If your pet exhibits excessive stress or aggressive behavior during grooming services, it will be brought to the pet owner’s attention. It is the groomer’s discretion whether or not to complete grooming services, should your pet become overly stressed or aggressive, to ensure both their and your pet’s safety.
Our client’s pets love the freedom and socialization of our crate-free grooming boutique. With two spacious grooming sections, we have the luxury of spreading the dogs out, separating the big dogs from the little dogs. Should you prefer your dog not interact with other dogs, please let us know and we will accommodate. Your pet’s safety and comfort is our first priority.
So that we can do our best to provide a low-stress, crate-free environment for your pet's grooming experience, we ask that you PLEASE return to pick up your pet when we call you to let you know your pet's ready. Because we are a crate-free environment, we can not operate as a "Doggy Day Care." Clients will be charged accordingly if their pet(s) is not picked up in a timely manner.
