DStephens I don't understand your complaints! You say that your dog was tied versus being in a cage? Hair in a bag versus all over the floor? On the nail subject I'm assuming you have a large breed like a newf, lab , golden, husky etc. Let me educate you on nails. Trimming your large breed dogs nails regularly is important. Too-long nails are bad for your dog’s health. They can split and bleed profusely. They can change the shape of the foot and cause other joint problems if they force your Dog to walk so as to protect the too-long nails. So don't blame the groomer blame yourself. Let's face it your groomer is not responsible for the dog having such longgg nails to the point of splitting and coasting joint issues. My dear DStephens it is apparent that the one abusing the poor Lily is you!!!!! Take your dog regular to the groomers or vet to have its nails cut more frequent!g your dog! Take responsibility on yourself!

I took my WAY over-grown Yorkie to Bark Avenue for a shave. I told the sweet girl to leave it 1 or 2 inches if she could. If not, to just shave him. When i arrived to pick up my dog, he looked ADORABLE!!!!!! Nails nicely trimmed, happy to see me, no nicks or cuts anywhere! His hair was 10 inches long and she did a fantastic job. Pleasant, understanding, and very kind to me and Spanky. He is a non-stop barker, and he wasn't barking when I arrived. (which means he was not unhappy) I will definitely go back, and refer all my friends. Thank you so much Bark Avenue!!!!! :)

I have taken my two precious furbabies there for two years now. I have been very pleased with them. They look awesome. Both are rescue dogs with a variety of health issues. She is very careful, extremely concerned about them and always is very professional. I highly recommend Ann's. I am very particular, and she has always met and exceeded my expectations.

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.
