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!
I called ahead of time for the appointment. They were recommended to me by my vet. It was extremely conveniently located. There is a big room they do the work in, but the dogs are allowed to play in that room as well. No cages. It is very clean and doesn't smell.
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.
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!
