Dog Bone
I have been taking my dogs to this place for awhile now. I used to take them to petco in waterworks but i found this place to be closer and overall a better experience for my dogs. The lady who runs this place is really amazing at what she does. Every time i take my dogs there, she always takes good care of them and when they are finished they look good and even smell good. Overall, the dog bone grooming is the way to go, with their expertise of grooming and the low costs. I will definitely be going back in the future!

Dog Bone
I had a situation that required 6 dogs to get a severe grooming. The owner scheduled me an appointment where I could bring all 6 dogs in one morning and said that she would have her friend assist. I will tell you that when I arrived for the appointment, she and her friend were very professional and forward as to what to expect and due to the condition of the dogs, they said that they would try their best. They really did an exceptional job just powering through the process for each pup. They were focused and kind , they were gentle and caring. It was a refreshing experience. The owner even gave me a great discount considering all the work that her and her friend had to do. They gave me a catalog and helped me find the right tools to keep the dogs' fur in good condition. I cannot thank them enough. I truly, truly appreciate all that they did. I would recommend the Dog Bone to everyone. They are truly wonderful people. :)
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.
