Once upon a time...

After spending 20+ years in the grooming industry, Carol Fellbaum decided that she would put everything she had learned to the ultimate test. On January 24, 2005 A Dog's Life was born.  Thanks to the overwhelming support of our wonderful clients and community, we have been growing ever since.


Throughout the years the team has been privileged to groom countless dogs and cats, as well as give time and donate resources to select non-profits.  We continue to participate in area events and festivals, and to hold special grooming seminars for local and internationally recognized groomers.

We our community.

Over the past few years we’ve been lucky enough to be able to participate in the following community events.

•  Bichon Palooza

•  Doggie Party On The Plaza

•  HSPCA’s Mutt Strut

•  Stump’s Westminster Award Party

•  Fashion Show At Hotel Zaza

•  Moore Elementary Spring Festival

•  Girl Scout Pet Food Drive

•  HSPCA Boston T-zu Party

•  CreekFest Houston

•  Wunderlich Christmas Festival

A few nice things people have said:

“Colton and I are truly blessed having met [Carol] at the dog show. [Carol] and her staff provide an extraordinary experience and grooming result. We’re fans for life!”

– Ms. Best

“Our dogs love coming to visit. I feel that every one working there is very loving and caring to our dogs. All are very concerned for our senior citizen Tessie and go the extra mile to make her comfortable while there.”

– Mrs. Rubens

“When I found A Dog’s Life almost 4 years ago, I was new to Spring and have been a loyal client since. Our family pup has a back injury and Carol and her Team handle him with care. He looks and smells wonderful after his blueberry facial. Thank You Carol!!”

– Mrs. Bruce

“My Shih Tzu was traumatized as a puppy, and this is the only salon that has been able to successfully and beautifully groom him.”

– Ms. McCullough

“We absolutely ADORE Carol & everyone else at A Dog’s Life Pet Salon. They are so incredible in how they treat our Eli and my daughters dog Odin. Not to mention how patient they must be as Eli has enough fur for 3 dogs! I can’t imagine using anyone else.”

– The Clewis Family

“My husband and I love when Chiquito comes back from grooming every month. He looks handsome and smells wonderful. Carol is very nice, giving advice on whatever she finds on Chiquito.”

– Mrs. Jennings

A few awards we’ve had the honor of receiving:
