it is thick tangled mass of hair, however, matting can be deceiving even to your groomer. We always try to estimate what exactly we are dealing with before we start on your dog but sometimes even the professionals get thrown off by certain coat types. Keeping your dogs hair a length that is in your comfort level to maintain at home till their next grooming is ideal.

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.Tracy S.
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'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.
By far the best groomers we have ever found! Our Airedale Booker has been groomed there several times now and looks better than ever. Previous groomers shaved him which led to skin irritations. Now, his skin is a good as ever! Booker is happy from the moment he arrives and enjoys playing with the other dogs. We take our Corgi Parker in for nail trims - something Corgis generally don't like. The girls have the magic touch because Parker puts up very little fuss, amazing! So very glad we found this local gem!Mj B.
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.K. Marx
