I've previously worked here. Nothing short of hell. Must have thick skin to last here. Owner is always complaining and there is rarely ever a 'good day'. Referring to another review most is true but I will say, although the employees are verbally abused I never once saw the owner or employees yell at or abuse the animals. The animals are well taken care of and the cats that live there seemed to be clean. One of the groomers clearly loves the cats as her own and took very good care of them as far as I saw. Although the owner is hard to deal with, her and her employees take very good care of the animals. I've seen dogs that others grooming shops would NEVER groom because of their behavior on the owners table and she ALWAYS nice to them. I think it's amazing that when dogs go here the majority of them run to the receptionist or the kennel staff and are happy to be there. DID NOT enjoy being employed here BUT if you want your pet to be properly taken care of and shown genuine love and affection this is the place to go.

We have a new puppy and we were desperate to find a place we could trust to take our new golden retriever pup when we both get busy with work as we sometimes do. Trevi has been going to doggy daycare at PB for 5 months now. We love that Trevi has a place to play while we work, and he loves it too. He can't wait to hop out of the car when we pull into the parking lot. The staff is so friendly and caring with Trevi and I always appreciate the great customer service that is given. If you love your dog and are looking for a place you can trust and a place that your pup will love too try Piedmont Bark. They also do a great job grooming and bathing our pup.

Doggie Styles Grooming Salon
I absolutely love this dog grooming salon. Alejandro is really a dog whisperer who is able to handle any dog's personality. Because the dogs are allowed to wander in the salon when they are not getting groomed, the entire energy is different. My dogs do not come home traumatized like they have before. Plus, their grooming is very affordable and Alejandro is very flexible on scheduling.

If anyone in Atlanta is looking for an awesome doggie daycare then I highly recommend Piedmont Bark. Puck and Rhett both love it there, and the staff (especially Sean) give them so much love and personalized attention and care. Plus when it comes to the canine flu in Georgia, they are super careful and haven't had any instances.

Excellent doggie daycare. I appreciate how they require a "trial day" to make sure all dogs your pup plays with have a good temperament. Also good for overnight boarding.

Tips & Advices
Some pet groomers have viewing areas where owners can sit and watch their pets being treated. Most prevent owners from being in the same room as the pet, however, as the owner's presence might cause the pet to become too excited.
Pets that cannot interact with strangers do not make good professional grooming candidates. Sometimes medication can help, but some groomers don't take animals that have been sedated. If a pet becomes too unruly, a groomer may end the session entirely.
It's best to fully vaccinate pets before bringing them to their first grooming appointment. Dogs should receive the DA2PPC vaccine, which stands for canine distemper, canine andenovirus type 2, canine parvovirus, and parainfluenza. It's also a good idea to vaccinate dogs against Bordedatella (aka “kennel cough”). In fact, New York City requires dogs receive both DAPP and Bordetella shots. Cats, meanwhile, should get the FVRCP vaccine: feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus infection, and panleukopenia. In addition, all pets should be up to date on their rabies shots. Owners should wait at least 24 hours after getting their pet vaccinated before bringing it to the groomers.
Technically, there is no such thing as a pet that is too old for a professional groomer. In fact, older pets with joint or mobility issues often can't groom themselves and need someone else to clean them. However, pets that are blind, deaf, or have serious medical issues might not do well at a groomer, especially if the person is inexperienced. Owners should feel free to ask potential groomers about their understanding of elderly pet issues. Often, older pets will exhibit puppy-like behavior and squirm or yelp during grooming. Alternatively, they might not be able to stand for long periods of time. As such, grooming an older pet usually takes more time than grooming a young one.
Puppies and kittens should be at least 10 weeks old before their first professional grooming session. They should be used to being gently handled by strangers and comfortable being separated from their owners for a few hours at a time.
