There is nothing quite as pleasant as a well groomed, sweet smelling pet. However, achieving that goal can be daunting in the sea of available groomers. After all, good grooming is much more than JUST about beauty!
All Dogs Hair Haven provides the highest quality grooming available. All Pets are hand scissored and groomed restraint free. Most groomers use snap-on combs on their clippers to finish your pet’s style, which leaves an inferior look. We hand scissor in order to provide this service. As it is done entirely by hand, it does take extra time, but it is the only way we groom. All pets are also fluff dried, something many groomers do not do, as it require special skills andadditional grooming time. Read more...
What we do
The woman behind it all
Besides house pets, Christina has also worked extensively with primates, raising many Chimpanzees and Macaques in her own home. The human-animal bond is an important aspect of her work, as is helping children with behavior problems through the use of dogs in 4-H programs. Her adult children, Kyle and Anna, are an integral part of All-Dogs Hair Haven. Animal rescue is another essential aspect of the community service of All Dogs Hair Haven, with 10% of the profits being donated to pet rescue.
All Dogs Hair Haven will groom your pet correctly for his breed, which includes proper physical care, such as cleaning and plucking excess hair from his ears, trimming his toenails, checking his anal sacs and checking his teeth for tartar. We also note any physical changes, such as skin problems, growths, possible infections or any other abnormality that should be checked by your Veterinarian. We can also assist you in choosing the proper products for your pet. An additional fee is charged for medicated shampoos, conditioners and matted coat condition.
Christina Crawfis, award winning master groomer, has been grooming and training dogs, horses and many other types of animals for over 35 years.

Can your pet seem like an angel and a little devil rolled into one? Domesticated dogs and cats are required by our society to make adaptations, that can be in odds with their genetic behavior patterns. It’s our duty as humans to educate ourselves not only in our pets’ physical aspects, but also in the behavioral arenas that affect our lives together.
The triad of adaptation, which is anatomy, physiology and behavior must be addressed, in order to achieve true behavior changes. Many behavior problems have a basis in the physical arena. Your veterinarian and behaviorist can play vital roles in achieving success. Drug therapy and nutritional changes in combination with behavior modification, can be effective in many areas, such as Cognitive Disfunction Syndrome. Homeopathic remedies can also play a large part in resolving a pet’s phobias and separation anxieties.
After working for 50 years (I started as a young teenager) with everything, from house pets to zoo species, including primates, I have found that the majority of problems are created by well meaning, loving pet owners. These problems are generally easy to identify and correct. Many of us see a “trainer” when our pet exhibits annoying or destructive behavior. Obedience training is only one important part of the behavior modification process. Our pets can learn to sit and stay, but will still destroy the house when left unattended.
Our mission is to provide superior care to Southwest Florida’s pets for those who seek high quality pet care. We will provide superior quality and excellence in all services. Everyone at our facility will exhibit professionalism, a caring attitude and superior knowledge in the care of all.

Some people think that the only way to find that specific breed is to buy the pet from a breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled to capacity with dogs and cats who must find homes, or they will be killed (euthanized). So rather than buying a pet for sale from a breeder, we encourage people to adopt it at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group. We always have adoptable pets in our grooming salon, yound and older, and we’re always happy to give you guidence and good advice on how to choose the right pet for your personal situation!
Not guilty, your Honor!
Think about how a new dog or cat is going to change your life. Both are going to take up your time and energy with feeding, grooming, exercise, and play. Especially dogs are social animals and need quality time with their owners - you! So, it is important that you and your pet are a good match. There are many types of dogs to choose from, not just various breeds, but mixed-breeds as well. You should not make your decision based on a cute face or a wagging tail. What if you choose a dog that is too young or too old for your household? Do you have little children, or are you an elderly person? Do you live in a condo or apparment, or do you live in a house with 3 acres of land around it? These are all basic questions you need to ask yourself before adopting a pet. Then these criteria also come into play: What breeds are prone to certain health problems, what are the grooming requirements for what breed, etc. Talk to a pet professional like Christina Crawfis, who has rescued and adopted many dogs and other animals during her long career as animal behaviorist, pet hospical administrator and master groomer. What are some of the benefits of adopting a pet vs. buying it at the mall? While many of the rescued pets may come from negletive or even abusive situations, they’re usually already housetrained. Best of all, our rescued pets will have their shots and being taken to the vet. That means less stress and more savings for you! So what are you waiting for? Go, get yourself that perfect pet! We’ll be glad to help you with advice and direction.

Christina, “Perky” left us today to join her best bud, “Jackie”. Her kidneys were tired after working for 16 years. We had 16 great years together, and shared 14 of them with “Jackie”, and I want you to know how much I appreciate what you did for “Perky”. Curt

We regret to inform you that our sweet “Lovey”, many of you knew from our shop, has passed away peacefully in her sleep. She was the most gentle and loving cat we ever knew and her name was appropriate. We are all very sad over the loss and we thank all who extended “Lovey” their love and affection while at our shop. She will be in our hearts forever. Christina Crawfis and Staff
A professional groomer generally sees your pet on a monthly basis (more often than your veterinarian) and must address a myriad of pet health issues as well as coiffing your pet beautifully. Owners may miss a thinning coat that can indicate adrenal issues, or painful ear problems. These types of health issues can be identified by an experienced groomer, which means, your pet then can be treated by your veterinarian before these issues become a serious illness. We can help you in finding the right care for your pet.
has become the leading choice for many to add a pet to their family. Whenever we receive or rescue a dog or a cat and want to find them a loving home, the pet is being checked thoroughly by our veterinarian, receives all the required shots, gets a good grooming and is lovingly cared for by our staff, until we find a new home for it. Christina Crawfis is an award winning master groomer and animal behaviorist and will not only assist you in picking the right pet for your situation, but also help the you with advice and tips on how to treat, feed and care for your new best friend. PLEASE NOTE: We’re doing our best to keep this web page current, but sometimes very lucky pets find a new home quickly and the ones you see here may not be available at this time. But don’t despair, just call Christina for up-do-date information on available pets.
She will spoil her new owner with big smiles and lots of doggie kisses. Great dog for just about anyone. Ask Christina at the shop for details and how to adopt her, or call the number below:
Christina’s (aka “The Greenthumb”) Pool-Bag Garden
This is the start
A Kiddie Pool & Bags
Christina didn’t invent this type of gardening, but she perfected it. With her immense knowledge in Fauna and Flora, she not only can do magic with animals, but also with plants. A kiddy pool, a few Walmart bags, soil, seeds and knowing how to mix it all together, and you too can have a little garden on your balcony or lanai. Just add water...
Tropical Storm “Erica” didn’t even come to us,but we had flooding everywhere never the less.Where you see water is normally dry grounds.

“Erica” began to fizzle out after Cuba, but it still brought a lot of rain over Florida. Even though we were not directly hit, you can see how much flooding we had. Just imagine the same in a real storm hitting us!
