This month, after 38 years of business in the Oak Lawn neighborhood, Perky Poodle Grooming & Boutique has moved into Suite 126 at the Shops at Mockingbird.

A Dallas institution, Perky Poodle has been in the dog grooming business for more than 51 years.

“Perky Poodle’s new location is excellent for its customers as it’s centrally located near the Park Cities and Love Field and offers plenty of parking and easy access for owners and pets,” said Eliza Solender of Solender/Hall, a Preston Hollow resident who helped broker the lease for the new 2,100 square-foot space.

“Our business is both high touch and now high tech,” says Michael Pugh, Perky Poodle’s owner and operator. “From baths to show cuts, our groomers and bathers have close to a century of combined experience for grooming and bathing dogs and cats of all breeds.”

Perky Poodle has seen three owners in its half century of business. Michael Pugh bought the boutique in 2001 after years of taking his dogs there. He and his wife own Perky IV, a rescue Poodle named Pebbles, and a rescue Schauzer named Sam.
