People aren't the only ones that prepare for the holidays. So do their four legged friends.
Business is booming at places that cater to pets like Helen's Grooming World and Pet Motel in Greenville.
A lot of people are dropping of their dogs to get primped and pampered for Christmas. Many of the dogs get a bath, hair cut, some even get their nails trimmed and then painted in a Christmas red.
Thursday the groomers had double the amount of customers than they usually have and they were expecting the same on Friday. they expected even more.
Kennel manager Dora Tyson says, "More people want their animals to smell good for the company coming over, they want their nails painted, or some bows in their hair, you know just the holiday works I guess."
Tyson also says they get a lot more people boarding their pets this time of the year and that also keeps them very busy.
