Kathy's Pet Salon
I will never go back. I've been going to Kathy's for 2 years. I've never had service from her like I have in the last 2 months. On my Maltipoo she cut him so bad we had to put antibodic ointment on it for 2 weeks. My poor Morkie she tried to hang him. She let him try to jump off the table. She had a sore around her neck for weeks that required ointment also. Then she left his face and ears uncut. She stated they were both to upset to finish the cut. Then she had the nerve to charge me for the haircut after she almost hung my poor 6lb dog.

Serenity Dog Salon
My experience with serenity dog salon was more homely if this makes sense everyone was so full of info and so courteous. Have wonderful products for my dogs sensitive skin and they did wonderful with my dog who has really bad anxiety :) I would recommend anybody to go here!

Not happy with Cocker Spaniel groom. Specified a specific blade length, groomer used shorter blade. Striped blade trail down my dogs back and uneven lengths on shoulders indicates groomer used a dull blade. $50, high for non-pattern cut. Will not return.

Love this place. Free nail trims and they are very gentle with my chihuahuas and german shorthair. I recommend this groomer to all my friends and family.
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.
