First of all, they need to use spellcheck if they are going to be posting anything!! Secondly, they take their time alright!!! 10 hours is a long time to leave your pets at a groomers for any reason and I'm not sure they even took them out to potty or gave them water. There was no water in the kennels that I saw!!I took my three dogs in, two for grooming, one just for a bath at 9:30 am. I didn't get them back until nearly 7:30 pm (nearly 10 hours!!). They said they tried to call at 7 pm, but nothing came up on my cell phone from them at all and I was carrying it on me. One of the dogs still smells although they did a good job grooming them, but it was much more expensive for the dog (10 lbs) who just had the bath than listed on their website, $9, and then charged me $28 for him. They said he was "difficult," and tried to bite them, which I told them he might try, but since they ended up bathing him I don't know how difficult he could have been. I even offered to come get him and they said no. They charged me $48 each for my other two dogs although they were standard grooming and no problem at all according to them, so why wasn't I only charged $38 for each of them. When I asked about the higher charge, Helga informed me they like to take their time with each animal, yet I called at 5:40 pm and was told they were just starting one dog and then the other dog would be next. They close at 6 pm. Quite frankly I feel like I was overcharged because they overbooked for the day and my dogs were last in and last out and they had to stay past closing time to groom them so they charged me the "overtime" for their employees. I won't be going back to them.

Kelly's Doo Dawgie Grooming
I took my cocker spaniel to Kellys for the first time today. (2-26-15) I have taken my dog to another groomer since the day I got her. BUT due to the fact that I refuse to ever step foot in that vets office ever again, I had to change groomers. I was so impressed with my Chula when I picked her up. She was cut beautifully, had a ribbon around her neck, and had pink toenails!! I was also informed that she had a skintag. We've never known that before. Apparently the last groomer just shaved it off all the time. :( I would recommend Kelly to anyone who needs a groomer!!! She's very hands on with your pet!!!

Thank you for doing such a wonderful job on my foster dog! He came back looking and smelling great. I got my foster back within 3 hours. Their prices are slightly more than what I pay at Petsmart but Id gladly support a small business and pay a little more. Furthermore, they offered a discount for my foster dog so kudos for supporting rescue work! Ill be taking my two personal dogs to them in the future.

Pink Poodle
I decided to give The Pink Poodle a try after looking around at different places, their reviews and rates. Admittedly, I haven't had a dog TO groom in a long time. Amy at the desk took her time explaining their process to me. Later in the day I picked up my PupPup and he was happy and beautiful! Thank You SOO much Pink Poodle! You made my life easier! :)

Pink Poodle
I've taken my Ella to a few groomers in the area but none of them have pampered her like they do here at the Pink Poodle. She comes home looking so pretty with her bows and shiny coat :) We'll be coming back again next month, I've become a new regular here.

I love these groomers. They take excellent care of your pet. My Pomeranian is major furry. They not only trimmed him in an excellent manner but removed two burrs that if left in his skin could have been a very expensive vet. bill.

I brought in my puppy here and I can tell that he is so happy with the grooming service he received. I am happy as well and would consider being a repeat customer.
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.
