Professional Expert Pet Care Since 1962

Gary's Professional Dog Grooming was founded in 1962 by the late Gary Jettner who built a reputation for quality dog grooming and dog training. Originally, he groomed dogs in his own garage. As the business grew, Gary continued expansion to a store front location on Kenwood Road in downtown Blue Ash.  Eventually, he expanded the business to the current location at 11551 Deerfield Road in Cincinnati Ohio.

According to the Cincinnati Better Business Bureau, Gary's Professional Dog Grooming is the longest continuously operating dog grooming business in the Cincinnati area. We are constantly amazed at how often people come back to us for dog grooming or dog training.  Regularly, new clients come in and say that Gary trained their first dog or that Gary groomed their childhood pet, so now that they have their own dog, they know exactly where to go for great service.  Occasionally, people that have moved from the Cincinnati area for 10 or 15 years, return and call us for their grooming and training needs.  Gary touched so many lives and continues to do so all because of the reputation that he began building when grooming and training dogs in his garage.

After a few different owner operaters, currently Gary's is owned by Rickey Kinley.  Rickey, with the help of Katie, is carrying forward the legacy of high quality, professional, caring, and attentive dog grooming, dog training, and boarding services. Read about Rickey and Katie on their respective pages.
