Pj's Pet Grooming
Thought we would try the local groomer for convenience.... Big mistake! I should have known when i called for an appt... She asked the breed of my dog and became very rude when he was not a purebred... She claimedshe was a breeder snob. I reluctantly kept the appt, only to be treated VERY rudely because my pet was not a purebred. I can only imagine the treatment my dog received in my absence?! And to top it off, the place is very untidy and stinks!

Great experience! And she was really fast (no sitting around in a kennel) and did a terrific job with the cut. It is a very small space but seems to be all the space she needs.

Pj's Pet Grooming
I loved my experience with PJ. I used to be a dog bather and I am pretty high maintenance when getting my bichon groomed, always with a long list of requests. She came out looking and feeling great and PJ asked me about my bathing experience and we shared stories and I liked her calm personality. The facilities are small, but were clean. I worked at Petsmart but I only take my dogs to single groomers like PJ, otherwise your dog is stuck in a kennel most of its time at the groomers, amidst the barking and chaos of that salon. I think it's a lot better for the dog in a small shop like PJs.
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.
