This shop was amazing!! We have only taken our Samoyed to one other place and we were not pleased with the results. Nor have we had success with a previous Golden Retriever. Needless to say we are very picky where we take our dogs. I love the open environment, you get to see exactly what is going on! It is wonderful that they let the dogs just hang out in the shop and not in cages (I mean grooming is scary enough for our Samoyed and then throwing him in a cage wont really help). I also had a great feeling that they knew exactly what to expect with each dog. Their prices were better then we were expect since our Samoyed needed a lot of help! In the end our dogs came out of the shop happy and beautiful (seriously I could stop petting them).

4 Paws up! They do a great job within a reasonable time at a fair price. And, my dogs leave as happy as they arrived. Less stress for the dogs! But don’t tell everyone! We don’t want them to get too busy!

Best place I’ve found for dog grooming at the best price. My dogs looked great and they had a wonderful time. I felt good about leaving them at a place that felt like “doggie daycare” rather than somewhere they’re led off in a back room to sit in a crate. My golden is really social and had an absolute blast.
Our experience with the dog shop was great! Our dog was in great condition when we picked her up. She had a very thick coat when we took her in, and she was shedding a lot! When we picked her up, her coat was shiny and beautiful! All of the brushing that they did decreased the shedding tremendously. It was probably the best grooming our dog has ever received. When we came to pick her up, she was relaxed and not nervous. The groomer came and talked to us personally about how the grooming went. They also squeezed our dog into their tight holiday schedule. The price was less than we had paid at some of the ”big box” places. We will definitely use them again.

I had my dog groomed recently by Jessica who did an excellent job on my Yorkie. She really listened to what I wanted him to look like, especially since I had a horrible experience at [a different grooming shop]. I would definitely recommend anyone to take their dog to be groomed at The Dog Shop.

This place is a diamond in the ruff! After my old groomer moved too far away, I came to the conclusion that it isn’t easy to find a dog groomer you can trust.
It’s very important to me to find a groomer to treat my little guy like the member of the family he is. After a couple bad experiences, I came across The Dog Shop flyer while hangin’ with my pup at The Dakota Memorial Off-Leash Dog Park.
I checked them out online and discovered that though Jessica and Danielle have a ton of grooming experience, this small business had only been open a month. I decided that it was time to give them a try (my little guy was in major need of a summer cut). When I called to make the appointment, I was able to bring him in the same day.
When we arrived it was a clean, and friendly environment. I love the fact that the dogs can roam freely (but safely) while they are there. Non of the dogs seemed to be stressed out at all. My guy was a little apprehensive to go back at first, but when he saw the other pups hangin’ out, he got excited.
I picked him up about three hours later, and he was just laying on the floor observing what was going on. He was excited to see me, but didn’t have the distressed “SAVE ME” look I’ve seen before. His cut looked great, and was a VERY reasonable price for the stress free service provided.
Jessica and Danielle are great!! I will recommend them to anyone looking for a better groomer. So happy you two opened this shop up!!!

A few of weeks ago I was out to grab some dog food from my favorite shop to do so, Natural Pet NW. I noticed that a dog grooming shop was going to be opening up right next door so I figured I’d take my dog, Geordi, in to get groomed because he was getting scruffy, maybe even mangy! OK not mangy, but he needed a hair cut so bad. I got the information for the shop and booked an appointment for today and took Geordi over for his grooming. There were two groomers on duty, Danielle and Jessica, they were super friendly and personable. We chatted with them for a bit and we found out they’d been working together for years and it definitely shows. They let the dogs run free around the shop which is very different from what I am used to. It is secure so the dogs can’t run away but the dogs can hang out and they weren’t restricted to kennels. They do have kennels available for dogs that need them or owners that prefer them though. My previous groomer had just used kennels and I never felt quite right about it. I always felt rushed to come get Geordi so he wasn’t stuck in a kennel.
Danielle was the groomer who groomed our dog. To be honest I didn’t know that our dog could get any more adorable and handsome! I never know the way to describe how to groom Geordi using proper terminology but Danielle was very intuitive and knowledgeable and patiently helped figure out the mental image I was trying to extract from my mind. She did an wonderful and amazing job! I can’t say it enough! Also Geordi didn’t seem stressed out from the experience whatsoever. She was even very understanding and forgiving of the fact that Geordi had more than the average number of accidents while at the shop. The price was also very reasonable especially for the quality of the work done.
I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a groomer or if you’re not completely satisfied with your current one (like me). I’ll definitely be taking Geordi back as needed. Did I mention they even had out some free donuts for customers? I’m not too proud to eat a donut, especially a free one!
Jessica and Danielle…The best groomers I have ever had the the pleasure to meet! Never before have I met two owners with the desire to love and care for all animals. Just being in their presence brings a warm smile to my face. For several years I have brought my two dogs for grooming and washing and have always been met with the greatest attitude of care, professionalism and respect.
Words just can not state the amount of integrity and fortitude the owners of this new business have exhibited on a daily basis. When you speak of being the best and receiving the best care for your pets then I would highly recommend bringing your pets, both large and small to leave them in their care.
They are the best at what they do and that is…”loving, caring for and grooming your pets.” Only once in a lifetime would you ever find owners who have a deep dedication towards your pet. It warms my heart to know I have found them!
Being a Golden Retriever, Eddie Spaghetti has been to his fair share of groomers…I mean, A LOT of groomers. I am pleased to say we’ve found our last one! Apart from the reasonable prices, Danielle is the most talented groomer Eddie and I have been to yet; she is the epitome of ‘dog whisperer’. Her gentle touch, and attention to detail is nothing short of impressive. We will be lifelong customers of the Dog Shop.
Jessica has been grooming our three-year old Wheaten Terrier Teddy since she was a pup. People regularly stop us to compliment us on how beautifully groomed and cut Teddy is and we are always quick to give the credit to Jessica.
Our experienced dog owner friends had cautioned that the most important characteristic in a groomer is a kind and patient hand so the dog is never fearful of the groomer or the surroundings. Teddy is always pleased to greet Jessica and eager to go into the grooming area. So we get a happy, clean and beautifully cut dog and a dependable and trustworthy groomer with excellent communication skills (canine and human!) and very satisfying customer service.
We wouldn’t think of taking Teddy to anyone but Jessica.
My two Havanese just love to visit Danielle and Jessica for their baths and trims. I love taking them because they come home so happy and beautiful, and tired from playing in the free roaming environment. Best of all Danielle and Jessica never make me feel bad if the girls are bit tangled!
