Absolute Best Grooming
Love this groomer. We have two dogs that we have groomed together. They not only look wonderful, they obviously are treated very well.

Absolute Best Grooming
I never write reviews but I feel a moral obligation to share our experiance about "Absolute Best Grooming". We have taken our dogs there a few times, they have done okay until Saturday. on Saturday August 1, 2015 we dropped off our pug, when we picked her up 4 hours later she was struggling to breath. Some may think she is a pug and that comes with the breed but she has never sounded the way she did when we picked her up. Her breathing only worsened and sounded like her lungs were full of fluid, within 4 hours after we picked her up she passed away. It was so hard to watch her suffer, she was a healthy, playfull 8 year old pug who was perfectly fine acting completely normal that morning. She has been groomed many times before by other places and never acted stressed out or upset until this time. After doing some research we think they either put her in a head restraint which can be done on long nosed dogs but should never be done on short nosed dogs, or they may have held her so tight they crushed her lungs causing the Alveoli (or air sacks) in her lungs to rupture filling her lungs up with fluid. We can't get a strait answer from them as to what happened. Every time we have spoken to them their story changes. We have even gone in person to talk to them and while we were waiting a guy was there to complain about his dog who had received an injury to the eye the same day we had our dog groomed. We never imagined this would be the outcome and want to spair someone else the heart ache and pain we have been going through. Please take this into account before taking your animals here.
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.
