Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding is owned by Ann Everts
a Rockville resident of mixed German and Italian heritage. She's been grooming dogs and cats for nearly 20 years and is known for raising the standards of grooming in the DC Metro area, and giving her clients and their pets the "personal touch." Over the years, she has provided grooming and boarding services to families for up to three generations of pets.
Ann is a Maryland State Certified groomer.
She grooms all kinds of cats and dogs—from household pets to top show animals. Her philosophy is that quality work and service are of the utmost importance. One of a few dog groomers that also specialize in cats, Ann prides herself on knowing how to handle cats during the grooming process.
Ann is very involved in your pet's life and believes that part of her job is to educate and answer questions about your pets' habits, their needs, and their preventive care.
She will get to know your pet almost as well as you do.
A daughter of a foreign service officer and a mother from Australia who is a landscape architect
Ann has lived and traveled the world. She's been to Iran, Pakistan, Germany, Australia, Kenya, Russia, Greece, England, Belgium, Italy, Afghanistan, Japan, New Zealand, Israel, and many more.
Ann has always loved animals and has had a large number of pets in her home ranging from Bassetts to mutts to beautiful cats.
She presently has a mini-Australian shepherd named Athena (see photo at right). Ann says that Athena is the smartest dog in the entire world. Athena's best friends are her housemates, a rescue cat named Zeus, and a 28-pound main coon cat named Rolls Royce.
Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding is a family oriented business where the animals and their masters are part of our extended family.

Happy Pets, Happy Customers
Your pet's health and happiness depend on the cleanliness of its teeth, nails, ears, and coat.
All animals need the skills and attention of a professional groomer. While regular brushing and combing to remove hair can and should be done at home, a professional should provide "full service" grooming for your animal.
Remember to start your pets' grooming at an early age so that they can feel comfortable and become familiar with the groomer. Pet grooming Rockville has become our speciality.
Many breeds have special grooming needs.
At Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding, we are trained to provide the specialized service your pet needs. Our groomers know the difference...from the Novia Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever to the Norfolk Terrier, we've got you covered.
Take a look at our pet grooming photo gallery.
We've taken some amazing and transformational before and after shots. Let us take a before and after picture of your pet for our gallery. Just mention it when you come in.
I'm All Pretty Now!
A clean pet is a happy pet.
Bring your little cutie pie to Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding. We will make sure you get the best quality service for your pet.
Dogs and Cats Need Their Teeth Cleaned, Too!
It is important for dogs and cats to get a professional teeth cleaning every six months.
Neglected teeth can cause bad breath, gum disease, and eventual loss of teeth. Like humans, if you do not maintain an animal's teeth, they will decay and eventually fall out.
Once that happens
the animal is forced to eat only soft food, will be in some pain, and will not have as high a quality of life. When it comes to an animal's oral health, we always say, "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure."
Cats need their teeth cleaned too!
At Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding, we use a special animal tooth guard which keeps a cat's mouth open while we clean and polish the teeth.
Our approach, our confidence in conducting the procedure, and the way we handle the animals makes them feel relaxed and secure.
We clean an animal's teeth with a calm, steady hand. The animals get the sense that we are doing something that is good for them, and some dogs and cats actually enjoy the cleaning they get at Ann's Quality Grooming & Boarding.
What is the process like, and what tools do you use?
First, we remove the plaque and debris from the animal's mouth with hand tools. Throughout the procedure, we flush the animal's mouth out with water and remove the extra liquid with a suction tube. Then, we use an ultrasonic Calvetron tool that cleans underneath the gum line and polishes the outer surface of the teeth. We brush the teeth with a toothbrush, and then flush the mouth out with water again. When we finish, the animal is ready to greet their owner with a new smile, sparkling teeth, and clean breath.
Do you use toothpaste?
We use a special toothpaste formulated especially for dogs. Our dogs enjoy the beef flavored toothpaste the best!
Do the animals feel pain when you clean their teeth?
Any dental procedure causes some irritation, but we take extra special care in polishing and cleaning the animal's teeth. We are very careful with our procedure and work to ensure that the dog or cat doesn't feel any pain.
