First two trips were good but subsequent trips got worse. They shaved my dog's head without calling to ask me because of a "knot" they could not get out. Then my dogs toe nails were so sharp when he got home they cut through me skin like paper and I lost a lot of blood. I would make sure to explore other local options before dealing with this group.

I took my little man ICE into this facility on Saturday. I walked in and was so welcomed as I walked in the door. They immediately start telling me things about dogs and they will check everything and call me if they need me. When it was time to pick him up i came in the door and the wonderful lady came out from back to talk with me about things with ICE. She had the info in her phone and gave me plenty suggestions on what to get him. Told me if I ever have any questions please dont hesitate to call her. ICE had been to a previous groomer who I was not pleased with. The great thing about it they have a dog store connected to the grooming and the gentlemen over there was so very helpful. I was extremely pleased with the service and more importantly the compassion they all had. Thank you so very much! We will always be a customer for everything he needs.

I am reviewing not only to rave about Kimberly and Carolina Paws - because she is the absolute BEST groomer I have EVER been to, but because I happen to know about the situation with the negative reviewer below, because I happened to have an appointment the same day as the nut job. She was upset because Kimberly put a picture of her dog on her Facebook page, she threatened to sue her for it! Kimberly routinely posts pics of her four footed clients, all of her customers, including me, love to see their fur babies looking cute. Around holidays she takes adorable pics of them. At Easter she took a pic of my dog with bunny ears on in front of a cute Easter display. It looked like I had taken him to a professional for an Easter photo. As for the mats, there are times when they have to be cut out to avoid hurting the dog, if you brush your dog once in while it won't happen. This woman was obviously a"groomer hopper", going to different places then complaining to get free grooms.

Dog Eared Corner Pet Grooming A
Rude, unprofessional and unapologetic. I think they abuse my dog.. Every since a vebal altercation with the owner of the shop. Last visit my puppy wasn't cleaned, her cut was uneven and tacky. And I think they never excrete her glands. Beware of this place, it's a wolf in sheep's clothing. Their only smiling and appreciative when it's time to pay. I'm not the only one who feels this way 3 other clients I've met coming and going.. Say the same thing. Very sporadic good service and very rude to be in customer service. This woman doesn't deserve to own anything concerning a living thing.. She couldn't babysit air for me. Take heed, make the drive across town. Or you'll have regrets, same as me. I posted a pic -- it's not crisp, fresh looking or cute. My baby was butchered by a maniac with scissors. Strays everywhere and she's uneven and looks choppy

I've been to this groomer a total of 3times and I've had a different experience every time. The 1st time the manager harassed me about picking my dog up after I just spoke to the front receptionist Lynn 20min earlier about picking him up. When I got there she seemed to have begged me for a tip. The 2nd visit with Stefanie, I had to go back over my dog with her and made her do things she seemed to have missed when she did his grooming, like clean and pull the hairs our his ear, his nails were still too long and other areas that she missed when trimming. After a few days of having him home after his grooming he started to smell so I honestly don't think they washed him properly. My 3rd visit was the worst of them all. They advised me they would trim him and his hair on his ear. When I got back to pick him up all his hair was completely gone and she went lower on one side stating he was severly matted but that was not the case. His ears was so red and still dirty like she didn't clean it.

I had the same problem as the 2011 reviewer. My dog was admittedly matted, but his last groomer has always removed matts without him looking like someone took a weed eater to his coat. His chest hair and sides had chunks missing & matting was left under his armpit. His hair was left too long (Shaggy at 3 weeks. At that rate it would have cost another $160 a year & they didn't do his nails). Their credit card machine was down so they kept my info to run later & said they'd call to confirm they destroyed it - nobody called. They claimed I said not to cut his nails (untrue - they needed more trimming but gently as the vet recently cut them a bit); that I said he looked amazing when I saw a photo they texted me (I said he looked cute); that they told me they were posting his photo on their FB page (it was never mentioned & I would never allow that). They don't apologize because nothing is their fault. It was ended with an attitude saying "good luck finding somewhere else."

Didn't like the attitude of the person who answered the phone when I asked what does the grooming consists of. You can't assume everyone has a pet. This is my first time so I wanted to know what it consists of not bath, nails and everything else. I am not aware of what everything else mean. Thanks but no thank you. Will not come there! No rating..

Alexis does a fantastic job with our toy poodle. In fact, she does the best of anyone I have found in Northeast Columbia. Her prices are very reasonable. She has a tiny building but a huge amount of talent. Very close to I-77 and I-20.

I would be careful about taking my pet there. At a recent grooming appointment, my dog was left with a busted blood vessel in her eye. When asked about it , the head groomer stated " Well we have to tug and pull hard when grooming at times, especially when the dog is nervous about being groomed or having nails clipped." Excuse me but you had to pull and tug pretty darn hard to burst an eye vessel. I will never take my dog there again. Now I know why I had such a hard time getting her out of the car when she saw where she was.
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.
