Kuts 'n Kisses Grooming Salon & Boutique


46500 Van Dyke, Shelby Twp., MI 48317 


Rooms Realty owner, Ed Knight, interviewed Kuts ‘n Kisses Grooming owner Renee recently and found out more about what they had to offer as a dog & cat salon & boutique. Kuts ‘n Kisses has been at their location since their business opened 7 years ago. They deal mostly by word of mouth, but have a strong Facebook following.

Something that sets Kuts ‘n Kisses apart from the “other” groomers is that they are cage free! Your fur baby is never put in a crate during the grooming process! In fact, they are not put in crates before or after they are done either! They get to play and hang out with the other dogs while they are

Charles R. Swindoll said "life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it." Well...I say the key to this message is to not react at all....initially. Give your problem, concern, situation time to sink in before you make a reaction. They often say that if you get an email, text, voice message, etc. that upsets you....SIT ON IT. You can type a response, but don't send it until you have slept on it. I have learned this lesson the hard way, but that is how we learn...by making mistakes. When planning this blog, I figured I could go a couple different routes with this quote, but the best thing I could think of is to give you some tips to do BEFORE you respond:

  1. Calm down. We all know there are cases when our temper gets the best of
