I would just like to say that April the owner just recent fired an incompetent bather who is on here lying under fake accounts. The reason I know this is because I was there when the cops where called on the corner employee. All I ask is that you come see for yourself how great this business is and make your own judgment. God bless!

Will never use this groomer again! Been taking my dog here for five years. Today I was told to drop off my dog at 8 so I was there at 8 and waited an hour and no one ever showed up. And wouldn't answer her phone either. I live in calera so it's a long drive to be stood up like that. Time to find a new groomer.

Best place to have your dog groomed.They did an outstanding job. They have taken my walk in service required several times. They have reasonable pricing. We just boarded our dog there and the price was very reasonable.

This is the best grooming shop around hands down!! April has the best prices, but you would think my dog was done at a expensive salon on 280 by how good he looks! We've used her for years, her and her staff are so sweet and loving! I highly recommend her, you will NOT regret it!!
Tips & Advices
Many people fear that their pet will be injured at the groomer, but incidents of serious injury are infrequent. For minor injuries , it is appropriate the groomer pay the vet bill, and can usually be worked out between groomer and owner. For moderate to severe injuries, you can attempt to activate groomer’s liability insurance to cover medical expenses. However, be aware that most groomer contracts stipulate that the business does not assume responsibility.
Staff at groomers know that there is inherent risk when handling animals, and they are familiar with being snapped at or bitten. However, it is not a normal occurrence or something you should ignore. Many people choose to cover medical expenses or pay extra--at minimum, apologize and get the dog into behavior classes. It is a given that  you should sedate or muzzle the animal for all future grooming sessions.
It is always recommended to make an appointment to get your pet groomed. While some groomers, especially in the larger pet stores, can accommodate with short notice, popular neighborhood groomers are often booked out two weeks out or longer on weekends.
If your pet has sensitive skin, let the groomer know when you set the appointment. But be aware, all dogs have sensitive skin by human standards--their skin is much thinner. Therefore, you should be on the lookout for signs of sensitivity, and reduce it through regular grooming with gentle, natural shampoo and conditioner. Oatmeal shampoo is a favorite. Daily brushouts and omega oil supplements are recommended for every day at-home care.
For various reasons including insurance clauses and pet-owner relationship dynamics and behaviors, groomers prefer owners don’t stay with their pets while being groomed.
