City Kitty
What a scam this place is. When I lived in AK, I had a wonderful groomer that charged half the cost of what City Kitty charges *and* they did a much better job. After my cat came out of City Kitty, he still had dirty ears. He did not seem clean; he seemed like he was sprayed with perfume and maybe dry shampooed. It was a disappointment, to say the least. I could have swallowed the massive bill better, had the results been good. Thumbs down

Virginia's Pet Salon
Laurie has been grooming our Havanese for the past six years. We wanted to keep his hair all natural meaning long so she taught us how to brush him out and once a month she brushes his teeth, clips his nails, cuts hair under his belly and paws, and returns him looking like a show dog. We love the personal care she gives our Checkers and know she treats every dog and cat that comes into her shop like it is her own. I have recommend Laurie's Pet Boutique to all my friends. She has years of experience which you want when to take your pet to a groomer.
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.
