Dog Gone Clean
I have been a customer for about 3 years. Diana grooms my cat and she does an excellent job, especially since he is a very difficult cat and does need to be sedated in order for anyone to groom him. Over the summer, I did have a problem with an appointment and wrote a negative review, because I wished that the owner would have called me, but she did not, and that was really my only problem. I said that I would never go back. Well, since then I have searched the area for a good groomer for my cat, to no avail, so I did go back. The reason I went back is because, in my opinion, Diana is the best. She does an excellent job, she doesn't complaint about the difficulty she faces with my cat, and I just don't think that there is anyone else around that can do as good a job on my cat. Cat groomers are hard to find and although I think the majority of her business may be with dogs, she still happily does my cat, and does him well.
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.
