Let me first a say, that I have eaten here several times since this establishment has first opened and have absolutely loved it. My husband on the other hand is not crazy about the place. This is my 9 year old daughters favorite place to eat and being that it was her birthday, she had her pick on where to eat. Let me say how disappointed I was as soon as I had to stand on a long line to be seated, although there were many empty tables. We were a party of 6, waiting on our 6th person to arrive shortly. One of the specials offered was a birthday meal stating buy 5 meals and get one free. Perfect! Not really, once our turn arrived to be seated my husband asked the teenaged girl who handled the seating, of the birthday special. She informed us sure we were eligible for the deal. Did we have I.d for proof of d.o.b, where we explained she was 9 and has no I.d. she asked for her birth certificate! My husband replied with a laugh, surely she was kidding. She was not. After her explanation of, she only works here she doesn't make the rules, management does, we should have left. So I asked to speak with the manager. But for my daughter's sake, we stayed. We state its her birthday, can we have the pretty flower brought out to her as she was sung Happy Birthday. Sure was the reply. As we were seated the little 25 year old manager asks what's the problem, where I question him about the birthday deal. He said it's normal and they have done it before and apparently many have produced birth certificates. In fact, I am the only person to complain about how idiotic of a request it is. Really? I don't think so. Is there no such thing as patronage or customer service? It was $6! His cocky little attitude almost got my water dumped on his head. Still we stayed. We asked the server a question and were immediately corrected on the prunciation of her name. Sorry Cazzie because Cassie is so unusual.At this time our 6th party member arrived. Although I asked for 6 waters, we received 5. I ask the waitress for another water and she hands me my husbands water where he had just gotten up to serve himself. I had to tell her we needed an additional water. The selection of food was scarce, the eggrolls and wontons were old and hard. The food was subpar. I had to remind them of my daughter's cake and when it was brought out it was some pieces of desert from the buffet with grapes. I did appreciate the waiters effort. Once we left, the manager acted as if he didnt even see us. I will NEVER EAT HERE AGAIN! Especially when its run by obnoxious adolescents who were quite lucky I was on my best behavior. Sincerely Jessica Rosa, the short curly haired Puerto Rican woman who almost opened a can on you!!

The Developing Canine
Carolyn Boling-Weinbaum literally saved my blended terrier, Roxie. I adopted her in early January 2010 as a 13-month adolescent because I fell in love with her beautiful face on the PAWS Humane website. I did talk to the folks at the shelter and read through the information about her that I was allowed to see. She was high-strung and excitable when we met, but I chalked that up to excitement over maybe finding a home. It was only after I got her home that I realized she was almost totally uncontrollable and would not go near a crate; she growled, snarled, and acted out like a spoiled child. Only after reading the paperwork they gave me to bring home with her did I understand that she had been returned twice--not the one time as I had been told. I called Carolyn in tears and luckily she was able to rearrange her schedule and come to my rescue … and Roxie’s … as I dread to think what her fate may have been had I returned her. I was actually to that point before Carolyn came to help us. Fast forward to the present day: Roxie is now under control…she loves her walks and romps along the bike trail and other places and goes off leash with the assistance of a remote leash which ensures she will respond to my commands and come to my side when called. She receives well-deserved compliments daily from bikers, joggers, and other walkers who see how she responds to me, comes, sits and “down-stays” while they pass us. Roxie is well-behaved now and enjoys wonderful privileges because she has learned, through Carolyn’s invaluable training, how to live in my home and listen to what I tell her to do. I would not have this relationship with Roxie -- in fact she would not be in my home and life at all -- were it not for Carolyn’s training, patience, and encouragement. I cannot recommend Carolyn and The Developing Canine enough. As she did with me, she educates and instructs the owner on how to train their dog…she demonstrates what the dog is capable of doing and encourages the owner to train and reinforce daily and multiple times daily. Thank you, Carolyn, for showing me the sweet and loving dog that is Roxie today.

On today, I and my family went to Hibaci on Auburn Ave, in Columbus, Ga. Our son is autistic. He has aspergers with ADHD. He's 3 years old and is all boy. We have been to Hibaci on a many of occasions and had fallen in love with the place, until today. We had been there for a while and our son had done very well up until the time we were all settled, full and eating dessert. Like Lil Jon says "YEAH", our son would get vocal here or there but once again, he was quite the "big boy" for the meal until we got to eating our ice cream. He wasn't fussing, fussy, crying or anything like that. He was enjoying himself and was very happy but yes, when he was, he was loud, not long, loud. The matre d came by our table and signaled for us to quiet him down so we did, almost. He would still do his yell but the octive was much lower and yet, we still tried to get him to quiet all the way down. Before we were successful, the matre d returned to our table and straight asked us to quiet him down. I tried to explain to him that our son was autistic and to just give us a lil time but he was quite firm in his desire to have our son quiet. I told the matre d, "give us a few minutes to finish up and we'll be our of your hair". This satisfied the matre d and he left our table. I, on the other hand, felt my spirit drop and proceeded to pack our things to leave. I and my family have never been embarrassed or ashamed of our special child and today is no exception. We make no excuse for our lil man and we are so proud of the progress he's made in the short time we've had since discovering he has aspergers but today I wanted to cry. We have been to Hibaci a many of times and have never had a problem with being there so this really got to me. Yes, Hibaci on Auburn Ave, in Columbus, Ga. has lost some customers. I know that the lost of our little money will probably mean nothing to them but this stance means everything to me and my family.food - SUPREMEservice - SUB PARmanners - SUCKS

Loving Tocuh Grooming and Boarding Center
This is the best groomers in columbus. We are military and out of everywhere we have lived they are the absolute best. I have a shih-tzu that does not like groomers at all. When she was younger Petsmart cut her eye lid but we couldn't do anything because she was not a show dog. Anyway, she loves going to this groomers. She doesn't shake or anything from being scared. They are great with her and even give them a little stuffed toy when she is done. I would go here than any other place in columbus. Trust me it took me three years to find this groomers because I went to everyone in the phone book and I wish I found them earlier. I have seen from some of the reviews about there prices but there prices are the same as every other groomer, except with loving touch you get great service and care for your pets. And, another plus unless your dog is aggressive they let them run around and all play together s they dont have to stay in the cage all day until you can pick them up. I just can't say enough about this groomers and I am so sad to be moving this summer.

I do their meal plan. As a busy single professional it is a convenient and healthy option. Their meals are delicious with the right blend of fat, carbs and protein for weight loss or just a healthy lifestyle. Plus it's all raw/clean eating. Then there is the price. That to is very reasonable for what you are getting, a healthy balanced fully prepared meal that just requires a few minutes in the microwave from you. Couldn't be happier that I found them. Wish I had money to invest to open a second location in the area.

Carolyn described my dog Sinclair as exhuberant....I thought crazy was more fitting. After only a few lessons, he became a different dog. Soliciting Carolyn s help and investing in the training collar were the right decision. Sinclair and I had a fantastic hike at Pine Mountain with the rest of the group and I have never seen him so happy (or well behaved)! With Carolyn s help, I can enjoy taking him places and ensure his safety because of the training. A dirty dog is a happy dog!

My wife and I have eaten here four or five time and it has been just great. The last time we went someone had over salted the seafood salad. I told the host and he in turn told the lady manager on duty. Within five minutes of me telling the host about the problem the manager was at our table asking me about the salad. She immediately went to the salad bar and removed it. We really do love this place. It is a breath of fresh air for dining in Columbus

I just called there and was put on hold...I could hear music.....they left on hold so long that it finally started ringing again. I let it ring and ring and ring....mostly out of curiosity to see if it went to voice mail or got answered. Nothing...Nada.....just kept ringing - I finally just hung up.

I recommend Carolyn and The Developing Canine to everyone asking how I trained my dogs. She takes the time to teach YOU how to train your dog and does not rush you along. You can tell that she truly cares about your dog and loves to see them improve and grow.
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.
