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!Scott C.
I took our new puppy to The Dog Shop for her first nail clipping experience for a couple of reasons. First being, their location is super convenient for me. Second, I had talked with one of the owners about my pups first clipping and I appreciated all of their insights. I'm not going to lie though, I was still so nervous. My previous dog (who has since passed away) was terrified to have his nails clipped. I'm sure that was in part of the bad experiences he'd had early on. I didn't want that to be the case for my puppy. I wanted her to have a good experience from the get go so I was so worried that she would have a bad experience. Like, what if they accidentally cut to close to the quick (her nails are black)...etc... This was not the case though! The ladies (Jessica and Danielle) were AMAZING! They were quick and my puppy was comforted and cared for the whole time. Not a peep of distress from her. I will be bringing our pup back to them in a couple of weeks for her first bath experience which I'm hoping goes just as well.Amber R.
I have been to numerous groomers and this shop is the best! My dog had a great time there, came away looking great, and all at a reasonable price. I highly recommend The Dog Shop!MaryAnn J. Vancouver, WA
I've taken my Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix here a few times now and he always come back snowy white and smelling good! I love the feel of the place - it's always full of happy dogs just running around playing with each other. From time to time I see a dog in the back who is segregated but I can tell they are aggressive and that's why they're separated. Everyone who works here is so nice and they always seem to remember my dog and comment on his changing coat each time. He's always happy when we comes out of The Dog Shop and he's a champion moper with a serious sad face when he feels like it so if he was upset about the experience -we'd be able to tell. I once took my dog to another groomer and I'm still traumatized by the experience. We've since moved into Lake Oswego and will still be going to the Dog Shop - that's how awesome they are!Sharissa D.
