Now Offering Doggy Haircuts & Grooming

Big news — we’re thrilled to announce that the Engelstad Grooming Academy is officially open for business! Whether your dog needs a bath, a simple trim, or a full makeover, Joybound will leave your furry friend looking and feeling their absolute best. In celebration, we invite you to tell the grooming team you were referred by the enewsletter to receive 25% off your first visit before June 30.

Joybound’s Engelstad Grooming Academy was founded to break down employment barriers, providing a training program for students facing employment challenges, allowing them to find work in the $5.38 billion pet grooming industry. It’s just one aspect of Joybound’s commitment to helping both pets and people.
