Your dog’s experience will include everything that they could ever want or need. Bathed in the shampoo and conditioner that is right for their coat condition, styled in any style you desire and including all the finishing touches such as nail filing, teeth brushing and spa treatments.

We like to think a little differently, meaning separate rooms and quality over quantity. Your dog is coming to us purely for a luxurious grooming experience with no kenneling or wait times. We book out extremely fast and pride ourselves on achieving Pawfect grooms that you are guaranteed to love.

It’s all in the details

Kindness, patience and experience with all breeds and sizes, you can rest assured that any member of Arnie’s is the perfect match for your dog.


When you leave your beloved dog with us, you’re leaving them with a friend as well as a professional.

The dog behind the name

Arnie was Gurj and Nate’s German Shepherd that shaped their lives in more ways than you could ever imagine. Named after a certain 80’s action star who made his very own American dream a reality, Arnie was kind, loving and was truly man’s best friend.

He was a perfect ambassador to his breed. Sadly, like all our companions, Arnie’s story doesn’t have a happy ending and he passed away from stomach cancer when he was nine.

Naming the shop after him is the very least Gurj and Nate could do to honor him. Love you always and forever, Arnie.

The Start of the American Dream

Founded by British couple, Gurj and Nate Drake, Arnie’s is their American Dream epitomized. Selling their home on the south coast of England, they went for broke and established Arnie’s in 2020 and it’s been more successful than they could have ever dreamed. With their passion for Dogs, their love for America and a pinch of British traditions, Gurj and Nate have guided Arnie’s to become a staple of the Salt Lake Valley community, accumulating in being a Best of SLC finalist.
