The very first cut Ted had by Jasmine was flawless. No questions. Just asked for a summer cut and she knew what to do. After that each time, about five visits now, there have been inconsistencies with his grooming. (Jasmine was on maternity leave). Each time I had to address what needed "fixed"; I'm not unreasonable nor demanding. I'm not a drama person and simply want people to do the job promised with attention to detail. PetCo used to cut Ted's hair but distance caused us to switch. PetCo knew what to do with each dog, no questions asked. We never had to explain each detail; head, eyes, tail, paws. This LAST time I went in and started to make sure they understood and I was taken back to the owner. The last time I also spoke with her she was very defensive, but this time she grabbed my dog and her clippers and went about roughly cutting on my dog asking is this what you want and this and this....All the time speaking like I'm stupid and she knew how to cut a dog. She was belittling and has always been defensive. Not sure if it's been the owner who has been cutting Ted's hair all these times, regardless we will not be going back. Pictures to prove their attention to detail is very much lacking!!! This is my kid, not a dog off the street. Get some training and do a good job, treat the animals, and a little more people friendly. Bedside manner matters. These pictures are an example of her lack of attention to detail. The paws look like they have a crew cut....blend it..

Royal Pets, LLC
I would rate Royal Pets services as an A+ company. It makes my family and I so comfortable that we can leave the dogs at home in their familiar surroundings rather that move them to a strange Kennel. Donna truly cares for the animals, one can see that in how he treats them, they are not simply a job! I would highly recommend this company to care for your pets.

I have been taking my dog here for quite awhile the place has always been clean and since I have some problems walking they have even been nice enough to come out to the car and get him and also bring him out to me, For the price they do a great job and he has never come out with fleas. He smells and looks great . They are the best here,

All 4 Paws
Excellent.They are very knowledgeable and expert groomers. What I really like is my dogs are safe, happy, well groomed. Many times I have taken my dogs to the bigger chain stores and have been disappointed that they come out looking different each time. So great that All 4 Paws makes my dogs look handsome every time!

Ocala Veterinary Hospital
As always we were cheerfully greeted by the office staff. They were very busy that day so instead of having us wait we were offered to see their new vet. I trust that Dr. Osborn would only hire an equally excellent Dr. so I said yes. We received excellent care as always.

Recently moved to Ocala, Fl. We were looking for a place to take out furdaughter to have her nails trimmed. We saw WORKS DOG GROOMING as we drove by. Decided to stop. The staff is extremely friendly and take care of your pets. Have been going there since

My Yuppy Puppy
Denise is an excellent groomer. She makes me look my best every single time. We have been going to Yuppy Puppy for about a year and would never go anywhere else. I even get in and out in less than 2 hours.

This is the best animal clinic in Ocala. Dr Dion Osborne is the best. When I thought nothing more could be done for my dog, he asked me to give him a chance. He made a difference. I highly recommend him.
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.
