Brand New Salon


Hello! Welcome to our blog! We are a brand new grooming salon that provides services for both cats and dogs in Bon Air. We are located on Buford Road next to Buford Road Pharmacy. Since opening, we have received several questions from clients asking if we are affiliated with the salon that was previously here, Burroughs. We purchased the salon in November and since it has been cleaned, remodeled, and upgraded. The salon is under completely new ownership, new management, and we are in no way affiliated with Burroughs!
Our Salon has a completely open concept so that we can visually see your pet the whole time they are in our care. We take every precaution to guarantee safety, which is why we have cameras throughout our facility. We never use any type of heated dryers or enclosed crates. Unlike corporate salons, our main goal is to ensure safety, quality, and a more personable experience.


Our Story

Mr. Herbert Alexander, the owner of Bows & Bones Pet Grooming, opened the salon in April 2017 as a pet lover himself for his dog PowPow to have a safe place with quality groomers to ensure they have a pleasant experience. He had previously taken his dog to other corporate salons where he just never felt he had a pleasant, personable experience. Under Mr. Alexander, the store is also run by Manager/Lead Groomer, Willow (also known as Jay) who has 13 years experience in pet grooming and 10 years experience in running successful corporate salons. This salon was opened and is run by the philosophy that pets are treated like family, because that's what they are. We look forward to meeting you and your fur babies!

  1. This place is absolutely wonderful! The whole staff is friendly, accommodating and professional. My dog always looks good when I pick him up but today he looked especially good. When I called later to compliment the cut I was told Katherine had been the groomer. Kudos to her! She's great! Would recommend this place to everyone!

Hyponatraemia - Water Intoxication in Dogs

Many dogs love a good swim or playing fetch in the water. These activities seem pretty harmless to your pup, especially considering how much fun they are having. However, your pup can have too much of a good thing. A lot of pet owners don't realize that it's actually possible for your dog can have too much water. Water intoxication, which results in life threatening hyponatremia (excessively low sodium levels), is a relatively rare but frequently fatal condition in dogs. Dogs who enjoy playing in water for long periods of time are at the highest risk. However, even a lawn sprinkler or hose can pose a hazard for pets that love to snap at or "catch" spraying water. Hyponatremia occurs when more water enters the body than it can process. The presence of so much water dilutes bodily fluids, creating a potentially dangerous shift in electrolyte balance. The excess water depletes sodium levels in extracellular fluid (fluid outside of cells). Sodium maintains blood pressur

Do You Tip Your Dog Groomer?

There are a few common questions regarding the topic of tipping your dog groomer - Should you tip? Why should I tip my dog groomer? What is good tipping etiquette? The answer to this question is yes, as long as you are satisfied with the job your groomer has done, tipping is encouraged. Pet grooming is a physically demanding job and is usually done out of love for pets. After all, this is skilled work that most pet owner's won't or can't do themselves. Tipping your groomer lets them know that you value the work that he/she does. Why Should You Tip Your Groomer? Some people tip their hairstylist and others don't, so some might argue, why should I tip my groomer?
