I bring my dog here regularly for bathing and grooming. Very friendly staff! They do a beautiful job and are great with the animals. I don't believe the negative review that was left by "Steph". He or she left a similar negative review on another website on the same day but under a different name. I did a lot of research before selecting a groomer and this place came highly recommended. I was 100% satisfied!

First the rating should be zero not even one. Took my two little dogs and the one still had dirty ears, every other groomer has always always cleaned them. Their excuse was they only pluck them, poor excuse since they didn't do a very good job with that.My other little girl was the worst I have ever seen. Scrapes and cuts on her neck, under her legs, by where I would call the arm pits, on her chest, on her back and the worst was her belly which was so red and irritated and painful to her that she woke up crying from it.They said nothing to us about any problems or issues or accidents and we asked how it went. DEFINATELY THINK TWICE BEFORE GOING HERE, I KNOW I NEVER EVER WILL AGAIN. Still waiting on a response from a phone call on what really happened, can't wait to hear their excuses.
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.
