   This is the best boarder in the Upstate
Jackson Sparks
This is the best Boarder in the Upstate. My dog is a handful to say the least, and they always take great care of him at Southern Comfort. I've tried other places and they don't compare. I now drive all the way from Greenville to drop the dog off when I go out of town.

   Debbie is a absolute angel...
Debbie is a absolute angel when it came to my pets. My animals always came back well groomed just the way I asked and with bows and scarfs around their necks :) I not only had 3 dogs to shave but also a cat which debbie eventually took in as her own when I could no longer keep him. I highly recommend Debbie & her establishment for all your pet grooming needs.

   This is a fine grooming spot...
I can attest to their kindness, professionalism and willingness to think outside the box and groom a cat! When I lived in Central I took my cat Kramer to Debbie (back when it was called Southern Institute of Pet Grooming) and he always looked wonderful and did not show any signs of abuse or mood changes. Granted, he was probably one of the FEW cats who enjoyed a bath and a haircut but I trusted her and her staff to treat him well and I never sensed any indication of abuse......

   Great job...
I have a hard-to-groom Golden Retriever and the staff has been very kind to her over the years. She is a rescue animal and quite deaf and easily spooked but they are kind and patient and she always comes home looking and smelling great.
