After operating a mobile dog grooming truck in the Cypress area since 2015, Henry Torres opened a storefront for the business June 2 at 7630 Fry Road, Ste. 800, Cypress, across from Cypress Springs High School.

The family-owned and -operated business offers grooming by appointment with various services, including a bath, a cut according to the customer’s specifications, face and ear cleaning, anal gland expression and nail trimming. Specialty treatments, such as de-skunking, teeth brushing and flea and tick treatments are also available, Torres said.

Dogs can be dropped off for their appointment, and clients are contacted when the dogs are ready for pickup, Torres said.

“I am not like traditional grooming salons that are trying to get as many dogs in and out in a day as possible,” Torres said. I prioritize quality grooms and the comfort of your dog over anything else.”

Dapper Dogs also has a retail section with T-shirts, brushes, combs, dog shampoo and dog bandanas. The shop will soon add premium dog food and CBD products.


Torres said he also has plans for a three-station self-bathing area for clients to come in and bathe their own dogs. 346-218-1505. www.dapperdogspremiergrooming.com
