Buddy is the client, so the question is: “What does Buddy think?” Mornings when we are ready to leave home and head to the salon, I ask Buddy, “Want to go see Ron? Want to go get pretty?” He is ecstatic from that point on, and when we park and I open the car door, I can hardly contain him / pulling on the leash, he makes for the gate and the entrance. Ordinarily, Buddy is a laid back dog. This behavior tells you everything you need to know about Classic Grooming! From an owner viewpoint, Buddy, an American Eskimo Spitz, is a beautiful dog and Classic Grooming enhances that beauty with their beautiful work and competent skills. We are long-time clients. I only let Classic Grooming groom Buddy - in fact, I have never even thought of using another groomer.

We took our 17mo old Australian Shepherd to Classic Grooming today for his first “spa day”. Wonderful job. Courteous staff- very informative & helpful. Hank looks awesome and Aussies are not the easiest to groom. We will be back!!

About Us

MY NAME IS Ron fesmire

It was a love for dogs and a desire to take an artistic journey that inspired me to study the profession of grooming 17 years ago.

I’m truly grateful to our loyal clients who have grown to know us like family and trusting us with precious creatures.

Classic Grooming had its meager beginnings in a small 400 square foot facility behind the Panther’s Stadium off Morehead Street in January 2003. We perfected our grooming skills and our services and we were in such demand that we needed a facility 10 times our original size. In 2008, we expanded to a 4,000 square foot space, where we are currently, in the Historic SouthEnd neighborhood.

Classic Grooming’s facility now offers state of the art equipment and is conveniently located right off South Boulevard or South Tryon Street. With 11 groomers under our roof and an exclusive doggie fun center, our average number of dogs per day is around 60.

We are proud members of the National Dog Groomers Association of America and adhere to its Code of Ethics. We have also been chosen by the NDGAA as a testing and Certification site.
