Dog Shack
This is the worst place to bring any animal. I went on vacation for a week and left my 4 dogs with her. She kept texting and calling my daughter asking when we were coming home and if we could cut our vacation short because she couldn't handle the dogs. Then she tried to charge me extra for giving them a bath saying they had fleas. I not only bathed them before they went there, but also gave them an oral flea medication and the stuff that goes between the shoulders so they wouldn't have any problems. I had to find someone to go get my dogs and stay at my house with them so I could enjoy the rest of my vacation. She totally ruined my vacation. She's in the wrong business if she can't handle dogs for a week. Don't take your animals here. Pay a little extra and go somewhere else. I certainly will from now on!
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.
