Chuck's Pet Grooming
I brought my Great Dane to be groomed by Chuck. I was wary of leaving him alone since he's so big and people sometimes don't know how to handle giant breed dogs. Chuck was so nice and let me stay in the shop with him while my baby was groomed. He is very knowledgeable about dogs and before I even said anything, chose a sensitive shampoo for my dog since Danes are prone to skin conditions. He was great with filing the nails and was very patient with my dog when he got scared of the noise the nail grinder made. He takes his time to make sure it's a good experience for everyone involved. My dog loved it so much even after I took the bandana off, he carried it around for weeks almost like he was showing me what he got and asking to go back. I have to side with the groomer on the other user's comments. I wouldn't want to work with a groomer who wasn't concerned with the health and temperament of dogs that will be in his care. The owner in this case should feel more secure knowing that this is a reputable business instead of being miffed at the policy. I could only see this being inconvenient to someone who doesn't keep their pets inoculations up to date. How hard is it to get a copy of shot records? I keep a copy in my house.

Gilbert's Getaway
Gilbert's Getaway is perfect for our needs. My dog stayed there for five days and has his own suite, plenty of time to get out on the trails with the owner as well as walk around the property within safe restrictions. Deana is very professional and treats her business very seriously. She has a small boarding facility but that way the dogs receive personal treatment. Being gone for five days, i wanted my dog to have interaction with humans and animals and not be locked in a kennel all weekend long. Here it was much more like our home atmosphere, where he could walk around. I will definitely be using Gilbert's again. The location is friendly, inviting and safe as well!

Gilbert's Getaway
My old dog was well cared for and enjoyed her stay. The proprieter treated my dog well and took good care of her. I was able to drop off my dog before work (7am) and pick her up at 6 pm for a grooming. She was groomed well even though my dog has many old dog afflictions and is temperamental like some older dogs.The price was more than reasonable considering my dog was with the owner all day.

I give 3 star's because the girl who did our dogs on more then three times was great, but the other lady was rude, bossy and was just not pleasant, we changed to a more friendly place, if somebody is this way to customers, I can't help but think she can't really like her job.

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.
