We began the process of federally registering two of our well recognized and long used service marks in 1991, the dog/striped pole logo and the National Certified Master Groomer® phrase. Registration of these marks will provide the legal leverage to enforce our rights and stop unauthorized use of the logo and NCMG phrase. In this way we can ensure that our symbol & certification signify the highest quality grooming services available and that these high standards are maintained for the future of the profession. Registration of these marks was granted in 1993. When you rent a car from Hertz, you can take advantage of special year round savings through the Hertz member benefit program added in 1995.

    Jeff Andrews is a "World Class" sharpener since 1995. He is formerly one of the original "Blade Guyz" team members and still one of "America's Favorite Sharpeners." We pride ourselves as being a "service center" not a "profit center’, with fair affordable pricing. As a part time groomer, Jeff has the experience to sharpen grooming equipment so it will cut the way its "suppose to cut." A sharpener that finally understands what you’re trying to explain to him, and what goes on in your shop everyday. What sharpener can do that? All shears are initially inspected; edges are re-sharpened to produce a smooth, sharp scissoring action; tension adjusted; bumpers, screws & washers replaced as needed at no extra charge; then the shear is cleaned & lubricated, with final inspection and testing done on actual hair. As an active groomer, I set up shears for my hand making the tips cut a little more than the back of the shear. Usually the tension is OK for everyone by doing it this way. Corrugation is done by request at no charge. Clipper blades are disassembled, cleaned, and hollow ground. Springs, glides, and sockets are adjusted or replaced (if necessary) at no extra charge. Blades are then cleaned again in blade wash containing a DISSENFECTANT and RUST INHIBITOR, lubricated and reassembled to precise factory tension and proper cutter setback. Each blade is string tested like the factory does it before it is returned to you. We sharpen all blades: A-5, A-2, Agricultural, and all ceramic. Jeff does all the sharpening, assembly and repair. If something isn't right or can't be fixed we'll call you, no sharpening or repairing unusable equipment. Northern Tails is a member in good standing with the Better Business Bureau.
