I have been grooming professionally for over 30 years. A certified member of the NDGA (National Dog Groomers Association) and have groomed and showed dogs of all breeds for the past 15 years. As a child, I grew up around professional groomers with my grandmother and mother both being groomers. My grandmother raised and showed Toy Poodles and Toy Manchester Terriers for over 35 years with having some of the top Toy Poddles and Manchester Terriers in the AKC conformation ring. I now continue the family tradition with owning and operating Hilltop Pet Grooming in Lillington, North Carolina.

At Hilltop Pet Grooming, we specialize in all-breed dog grooming. We offer a wide variety of breed cuts and also owner specified ones as well. We also specilize in scissor cuts and designer show poodle cuts. We use only all natural, chemical free products. All groomings include specified pre-cut, nails cut and also dremaled to remove the sharp edges, anal glands expressed externally, ears plucked cleaned and flushed out, shampoo , deep conditioning, a chemical-free all-natural flea and tick dip only if fleas or ticks are present, a finish cut, cologne or perfume and bows or bandanas and nail polish if requested. All these services are included in all of our groomings at no additional charge. Any additional charges may be added only if there is excessive matting and extra handling fee for any pets that may require additional assistance for grooming.

All appointments are made in advance Monday thru Friday 8am - 5pm and every other Saturdays 9am - 2pm. Normal drop-off times are from 8:00 - 9:30am but early drop-off times can be arranged if needed. All grooming dogs must have a current rabies vaccine and shot records including a current Bordetella vaccine against Kennel cough. Proof of this must be brought in with all first groomings. We also request that all dogs be kept on a secure leash or in a carrier at all times. Hilltop Pet Grooming is a professional grooming business with a family atmosphere. We feel that every single one of our four-legged clients are part of our family and we treat them as if they are.
