The Pet Set
I can't believe the awful reviews. I've used Dixie at The Pet Set for over 12 years. I had 2 chow chows and they always came back beautiful - the male always got matted and he never had a burn or scratch on him from shaving. Chow chows are not the best with strangers but they loved Dixie. I also had a sweet pit mix that was groomed there as well. Dogs should be picked up by the scruff of the back of the neck as how the mother dog Carey's them- especially smaller dogs so they can't bite.

I also find this very shocking and hard to believe. I have taken my poodle to Dixie for a very long time and never had a problem. I have a very special needs dog that others have turned awayand she was ALWAYS kind and very patient with him. Once I even showed up without her knowing and found her just sitting holding with very sweetly.

Bubbles-n-Bows Dog Groom
Wow, Cheryls' Bubbles-N-Bows in Douglasville on Fairburn Road is the "BEST"!!! She is the owner and operator of this pet grooming salon. Her artistic ability is wonderful and she produces a style that is easy on the eye. My dog, Izabella, is always very clean and beautiful when I pick her up from grooming.

Best groomer I have EVER used in the area. Patient and works with your pet's personality. Ours is snappy so her patience is greatly appreciated. Don't hesitate to bring your loved pet for a haircut or a bath because they know dogs cats and??? Every pet is treated like family here.

I have had a great experience here! Recommend this for those who feel weird about groomers hiding behind close doors! Great prices too!
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.
