Loved her pets which were beautiful and well behaved. You can tell these people loves animals like I love mine. Well be taking her there for all her grooming needs.I love my Daisy very much and would recommend to anyone who loves their pets to go here and the professional cut of my Westi was amazing!!!

To The Dogs Grooming
I suppose when they called at 9:00 PM to confirm my appointment I should have realized that the owner doesn't have the smallest amount of business decorum. However, when I dropped off my dog I had no idea what I was in for. The owners have 3 dogs and a cat that roam free, which may have made my own little guy a little nervous. And, although I have never had a problem leaving him with a groomer before, he immediately defecated in his kennel. The owner called me promptly to tell me that my dog has "crapped and pissed all over the place". So, not only did they charge me $5 more for the service they made it very apparent that he was the ONLY dog that has ever done that in their line of work... which is dealing with ANIMALS! Of course, no pet owner wants to inconvenience someone else with having to clean up after their dog, but they work with ANIMALS, some of them might actually act like ANIMALS. I have been to a Vets office and seen dogs pee or poop, been to several groomers where it has happened with other dogs and I have never seen a professional, who works with ANIMALS, get so upset about it. If the poor dog wasn't already being washed I would have taken him away immediately. Obviously, he wasn't comfortable there and I wasn't either. He won't be going back and if you want a compassionate, caring PROFESSIONAL to deal with your dog, you won't take them their either!!!
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.
