I've been going here since shortly after they opened, and they are amazing! They do a great job on both my dogs. One of my dogs is fearful and they are the only people outside me family that can touch him without a negative reaction. I've stopped by before and saw them in the back with other dogs playing with them and loving on them while waiting for their owners to pick them up, and they are always sweet to my dogs and my grandma's dog. Just make sure you schedule ahead, especially during season, as they are so popular it can be a long wait to get in.

This is the best groomer in the North Port area. I have been taking our little havanese poodle mix there for almost a year now and have been very pleased with the care and loving attitude of the owners. I'm not sure who the person is that is leaving the negative reviews but it seems they are all by the same person. Maybe another groomer who is sore for losing business to Atomic? I don't know but it could be. I recommend Becky at Atomic to all my friends. Russ C.

RUDE - RUDE - RUDE - Yesterday I had an appointment for 3:00 pm, due to many reasons such as the holidays, kids, etc... I forgot about my appointment. I received a call from who I believe to be the owner, 30 minutes past my appointment time telling me I had missed the appointment and that I would be charged $22.50 the next time I brought my dog in. The tone of the caller was very rude to say the least, as if I owed them something.The last time I checked, I was the customer and did not really owe them my business. It was like they feel entitled to my patronage.There are many dog groomers in the area and I will see if some of them appreciate my business and tips. Sorry I missed the appointment BUT I don't owe Atomic Dog anything. Bottom line is they are very rude and come across as arrogant. I will not be going here anymore. Their grooming was NOT even that great. The bows in my Shih Tzu's hair were out the same day as the groom. I also don't believe they were cleaning out her ears as they were supposed to. Not a very thorough job. I will gladly take my money elsewhere.

DO NOT TAKE YOUR PRECIOUS BABY HERE! Took my little yorkie here - he had mats in his coat because of using the wrong harness - they shaved him (including his entire head)!!! I nearly fainted when I walked in - they do NOT care about the animals. The woman in the front is very arrogant and would not release my pet until I paid. I told her I was going to complain and she said "go ahead - if you do, I will report you for abuse!) - take you pet elsewhere.

Take your precious animal elsewhere. Don't cater to Atomic Dog in North Port, FL. Our little girl has an ear infection and the cause was the grommer (Atomic Dog) was not removing the ear hairs which they should of been doing to start with as part of the total grooming experience. Also, they are lax in informing you via email of your upcoming appointments. Bottom line - take your pet elsewhere.
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.
