Pet grooming may not be rocket science but if that's the case, why do so many pet grooming shops have such rockin' signs?
1) Unjust Grooming?
This dog and cat grooming shop in London, UK states plainly that they're “Just Grooming”, no more and no less. Wait, scratch that, a closer look at their sign reveals “and more”, indicating they offer more than just grooming at Just Grooming. Glad we cleared that up.

2) Behind the Times
You just knew there HAD to be a dog groomer named “Doggie Styles”, and sure enough there's one such snicker-inducing shop in Mohawk, New York. The Paesano's Pizza place next door looks a lot like Panucci's Pizza, where Philip J Fry used to work. All it needs is Seymour waiting (and waiting, and waiting) out front, presumably for a trim.

3) Hair of the Dog
Welcome to Wagtime, a vegetarian & vegan cafe that also does dog grooming. This begs the question: if stray dog hair gets into the food, is it no longer vegetarian? We also wonder about their sign... if you want your pet to be trimmed in front as well as the rear, you could be out of luck. (pet grooming shop sign image via Matthew Paul Argall)
4) Pay Your Do's
An appropriate sign, considering one can easily get pooped trying to trim their pet at home. Hopefully your furry friend won't poop while being groomed here, however. That's definitely a Doggie Don't. (pet grooming shop sign image via jimsawthat)
5) Lassie Hum Comb
Who says Hollywood's run out of ideas... for naming pet grooming shops! We've gotta give “Hollywoof” credit – yeah, go ahead and roll the credits – for their shop's clever name and some sharp sign graphics to complement it. Bonus: the shop's located in beautiful downtown Burbank. (pet grooming shop sign image via Gareth Simpson)
6) Best Man's Friend
Either this is an ad for the worst Bridesmaids sequel EVAR, or the shop paid minimum wage to (and received minimum effort from) their sign-writer. Why not both? (pet grooming shop sign image via Alan Levine)
7) Grey Hounds Busted
A 20% discount on grooming services for seniors? Shut up and take my money! We gotta ask, tho', what if a retiree owns a puppy, or a Millennial brings in his or her aged childhood pet? Just who gets the discount? And what's 65 in dog years? (pet grooming shop sign image via Paul Sableman)
8) Utter Dogwash
TIL that “Rex” is a self-serve dog wash and groomer. How in the heck does that work? Much like an automatic car wash but with razor-sharp rotating knives, we imagine... and yeah, we imagine a little too much sometimes. (pet grooming shop sign image via J)
9) Van Go
Kinda cool that Colombia has their own real-life version of the Mutt Cutts van from Dumb & Dumber, sans the fur covering. Guau Pet Movil's mobile services include bathing, hair cuts, feeding and more for dogs and cats. Chowing down, sudsing up, and getting a fashionable trim inside a cramped vehicle speeding through the streets of Bogota? Sounds legit. (pet grooming shop sign image via young shanahan)
10) Is It Safe?
The oddly-named Toothacres is a self-declared “Pet Care Center”... looks more like a pet SCARE center, amiright? It must be said, however, that if one's dearly departed dog (or cat) is off to lift their leg on the pearly gates, they might as well go well-groomed. That goes for pet-owners as well – the grooming part, not the leg-lifting. St Peter's sense of forgiveness only goes so far. (pet grooming shop sign image via genebob)
