Pampered Pets Grooming
My name is Stacie Lohmeyer the owner of all the Pampered Pets Salons and I'm going to address the negative reviews on this site. I'm not sure why my Google and Yelp reviews are good and this site has all these bad ones. I bought Pampered Pets on 17th over two years ago and it had 150 clients and with the help of some other awesome groomers I've grown it to 8000 clients. My husband does own a car dealership , its in Osborne Kansas a small farm town 3 hours from Topeka and I have never sold a car from there, I've been there 3 times in 4 years. I lived in Kansas all my life. Asking my completion my back ground is ludicrous. I'm sure they are feeling a drain on their client base, several times a day we get new clients and they are switching from another groomer or shop. When they complain about other groomers we do not comment or agree. Its called Business Karma, our shops are positive places. I went to Nash Grooming School in Louisville Kentucky. It is the #1 school in America and it cost me $35000. I also attended two other grooming schools that specialize in certain breeds. I interned ( worked my but off for free) at 11 other shops all over the United Stated for another year to get an idea of what I wanted my shop to be. I wanted to learn new modern ways. That's how I developed our bath and walk in program that clients love. Before I went to grooming school I raised and showed dogs. I've been to Westminster and Crufts with my dogs. I've always been in some form of the pet industry. Everyone I hire has been to a school or groomed somewhere on their own for min 5 years. Losing your cool with a dog is instant termination. I use only top of the line shampoos and products, not Dawn dish soap. No extra charges for oatmeal or med rinse treatments. no extra charge for grinding nails. Our pricing is very fair and usually a little less than most We also charge by the size of the dog which is fair for the clients and the groomers. I am the ONLY person who answers the phone. There is no way a dog can get a urinary track infection from grooming. Its a bath and hair cut and don't board dogs. You can get fleas from anywhere including grass, we take fleas very serious, our shops do not have fleas! I have never in my life told a client to F_off. I always try and work on a solution. We do hundreds of dogs a month and I understand the fact you cant make everyone happy but I'm willing to try. If your dog is matted and you groom it 2 times a year you will pay at $10 matt fee which is a deal because it takes twice as long to do the cut and ruins our blades. ALL shops do this and many charge much more. Why would you pay the same as a person who comes every 6 weeks who maintains the dog and brushes the coat? If you want the matts brushed out take the dog somewhere else because we are not in the business of hurting dogs. I personally guarantee you this... your dog will be treated like I treat my fur babies at home with kindness and compassion , you will be charged a fair price that is posted on the wall and your pet will be in and out as quickly as possible, most days less than two hours. Shops are clean and have all nice state of the art equipment. Please feel free to call me at anytime. I answer my phone 24/7.

This place was such a gem to find. In the past I've had not the best experiences with having my 8 year old golden retriever groomed and I get nervous when I have to find yet again another new place to take her. She's anxious, has problems with her back legs and tends to bark excessively when I leave. A friend recommended ABC to me and I called just wanting to ask some questions first. The woman who answered was so helpful as I explained my worries and what I was looking for. She explained their process, that they're used to dealing with dogs that had issues and they do whatever they can to accommodate that dog. They don't do walk ins so I had to schedule an appointment several weeks in advance which I was perfectly fine with. It took them 5 hours to shave and scrub her (because she was anxious they went slow) and it was well worth it. They sent me pictures when I got anxious for her and kept me posted on their progress. through out the day I highly recommend this place!

We have been using Dr. Post for years, (since the late 70's) and have NEVER had an issue. We even moved to Missouri and took our dog to a vet there, she was unsure of the problem so she called Dr. Post and told him the lab results and her thoughts and he confirmed LONG DISTANCE over the phone what was wrong with our dog and she was able to help our dog. Moved back to Topeka and he has been our vet since! Love him and most of his staff, (Bob can be rude at times but I just ignore him. He can also be as compassionate as anyone in the office when he wants to be). I would recommend Dr. Post to EVERYONE!

I took my Poochon here and he LOVED it!! They are very professional and did an AMAZING job!! My puppy has long, thick, curly hair and needed it shaved. They did an amazing job, and were very professional job. My puppy can get nervous when he isn't with me. I was EXTREMELY impressed when I picked him up because he was completely calm. This tells me they took very good care of him and he wasn't nervous at all. My dog is like my child and I am very protective and have very high expectations. Pampered Pets surpassed them all! I would highly recommend Pampered Pets Grooming Boutique.

We live in S.W. Topeka but gladly make the drive up north to see Dr. Mah and Dr. Stancliffe. They are compassionate and professional and always take good care of our pets. Their staff are wonderful and easy to work with and getting in for an appointment is rarely a problem. We have not had to use their boarding services, but I have a friend from work who travels frequently and always chooses to leave his dog there.

I do remember grooming your older dog. I did make changes at your request before you left and was under the impression the correction on the length was made to your satisfactory. I would do anything to make my customers happy ����. I take great pride in the kindness I show all dogs in my shop. So if I can make it better for you in any other way please contact me. Char

We took out family dog in for an infection...$500 later we still had no conclusion. Businesses should be up front with costs and procedures. Not everyone has $500 laying around to dish out. Make sure you ask for costs up front!

They have great prices and do a fantastic job with my dog. The staff is super friendly glad I made the switch. (We use to use petsmart over priced and not that great) I woul recommend Pampered pets to anyone I know.
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.
