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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
