Changing The Face Of Grooming-Bingo Pet Salon

| August 24, 2015

Royal Oak, MI – Bingo Pet Salon, located in Downtown Royal Oak, has been changing the way grooming is done for the past four years. It used to be that you took your pet into a grooming shop, dropped them off with the receptionist, and off they went behind closed doors. Not at Bingo. From the minute you walk into the salon, there is a different feel. The salons open concept allows for clients to see where their dogs are bathed, dried, and groomed. “We want people to see what happens with the groom process so they can understand what is going on,” says co-owner Brian Lane. “Our groomers greet every client when they come in, discuss the groom, and are here to answer any questions clients may have.”

bingo3Bingo Pet Salon is also very active in the local animal community. Just this year, Bingo launched a nonprofit called Bingo Cares. Bingo Cares offers free grooming to local rescues and shelters. Jaime Wolfe, co-owner of Bingo Pet Salon and President of Bingo Cares says, “I can see the difference that grooming makes for the neglected and forgotten animals as they enter into rescue and subsequently the new phase of their lives. Most really work to put their past behind them. Dogs and cats that come in broken and confused leave the salon feeling and looking amazing, and often their attitude will match! It truly is an amazing thing and why I am so passionate about this cause.” On top of the free grooming services, Bingo Cares has also helped to raise money and supplies for several local shelters and rescues.

bingo2Finally, coming this fall will be the new Bingo Institute of Grooming. The institute is designed to teach new groomers the art of pet grooming. Lead Grooming instructor Jessica Conway, owner of Pet Spa Grooming in Plymouth, has been teaching groomers for the past 7 years and is looking forward to partnering with Brian on the school. “Our goal is to teach top level pet groomers, who will have the skills to immediately get employment in this fast paced, growing industry.” Programs offered by the school will include a bather program, vet assistant program, as well as dog and cat grooming courses. The school will expand on the reach of Bingo Cares by offering free grooming services to all rescues and shelters. They will also have discounted services, for people who cannot afford regular grooming. Jessica and her staff will also be offering clinics for pet owners on proper care between grooming.

Bingo Pet Salon is located at 108 W. 4th Street in Downtown Royal Oak. Bingo Institute of Grooming will be located at 110 W4th St, directly next door to the salon. Donations for Bingo Cares may be dropped off at either location, or to sponsor a groom for a rescue dog you can call 248-544-7424.
