Let me start by saying people are quick to say things to hurt or destroy someones reputation because they dislike this person or are even competition of some sort who are trying to get business through bashing someone else...
Marc & Annie are both sweet compasionate people who adore animals and treat everyone of them as if they are their own. For someone to even say that anyone in this shop would hurt an animal ON PURPOSE has to be crazy! Dogs and cats who are being groomed dont sit there and let you do your job they move, bite, scratch, thrash , squirm, jump and act crazy ESPECIALLY IF YOU DONT REGULARLY GROOM THEM! I agree with the comment under me, try it yourself and tell me its abuse or impossible to hurt an animal whos thrashing or biting or trying to get away.
Lakeside Grooming & Annie And Mark are wonderful caring people who would NEVER hurt a fly and they are great at what they do !
THUMBS UP GUYS KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK ! (:

As a professional groomer and actually a competitor of Lakeside, I am tired of people trashing groomers publicly when they are completely unknowledgable of the industry. As groomers we deal with dogs and cats at their absolute worst behavior. They bite, claw, pee, poo bark all day and continuously fight you when you are trying to make them look beautiful, with sharp instruments! The stress this can put on a groomer is intense. Groomers generally love animals, or trust me they would not be doing this job. Worse than the uncooperative pets are their owners who think they know everything and accuse groomers of cruelty. I have been accused of being cruel because I used a dog's harness to pick up the dog or because I tugged at the neck restraint on my grooming table to attempt to distract my dog. Many many more times have dogs hurt me due to thier bad behavior than they have been injured in my career. And owners please remember that if your pet does get injured from a sharp instrument and needs a visit to the vet, please don't hold the groomer completely responsiable. Try clipping and cutting your own dog one time and see what we have to go through. And for those who love Bark Avenue, remember that all the grooming takes place behind closed doors where you can't see what is happening. And people who are looking for a groomer through reviews, remember that usually only bad reviews make it here. Consider there may be many hundreds of satisfied customers.

Took my dog for a bath, nail cut, and trim. Told the old guy not to shave him. I wanted him to have just a trim. I also told him not to create him, he has create issues. When I left he was in a holding area that has a baby gate (this was fine) I went to pick him up to find him shaved and in a create. They must have forced him into that create and God only knows what elese. Needless to say, I won't be going back. I wish I would have seen the reviews prior. 8 poor review out of 12 can't be all wrong!!

I used to come here all the time for my two dogs and cat...I would drop and off and have no problems with anything. They did a satisfactory job. One day while picking up my pets, I saw Annie with a dog, a slammed this poor thing by the neck onto the table while she was "grooming" them. This disgraced and disgusted me to the point where I never returned and told all my friends who used to go there what she does to the animals. I also had a friend who brought in a cat, and she told them that she would not groom their cat..I think they were lucky ones. Here's a tip, go across the street to Bark Ave, where they actually respect their clients animals and do a much better job. What goes around comes around Annie!

okay this is a response to the MORON who posted lakeside grooming is trash. you are a pet OWNER, not a pet PROFESSIONAL. a quicked nail even if its all 20 of them (which im sure you exaggerated anyway) is not a big deal. it happens almost every day in a grooming shop. i would like to see you try and cut a squirming uncooperative dogs nails. oh and by the way there is this great little thing called QUIKSTOP. it stops the bleeding instantly. i'm sure if you waddled yourself back in the store Marc or Annie would have been more than happy to put some on your little critter. but no. instead you choose to accuse them of abuse. why? because your dog was shaking when you picked it up. NEWSFLASH. to a dog the grooming environment can be sometimes somewhat overwhelming. the other dogs barking, the sounds of the dryers, the smells, the clippers, and ESPECIALLY nail cutting. 90% of dogs are very uncooperative for this. i worked with Annie and Marc for a little while and the are the FARTHEST thing from animal abusers. Annie sings to the dogs for Christ sake. i also noticed you attacked clean as a whisker. it sounds like to me you are just a mudslinging never satisfied customer. and writing nasty reviews based on your dogs nails getting quicked, well quite frankly i think that that makes you TRASH lady.

DO NOT USE THIS GROOMER**** I took my dog there for a little while, and thought his haircuts came out great and thought he was SAFE. I thought WRONG I picked my dog up one day and he practically jumped into my arms and he was shaking like a leaf. When I brought him into my car there was BLOOD EVERYWHERE, these bastards cut every nail to the vein. Its one thing to cut one nail but every nail there Is something wrong. Maybe someone lost patience and just cut the nails to get it over with not caring if they hurt my dog. At that point I stopped going there. The husband and wife that own that place there is def something wrong with them. I had that gut feeling when I first brought him in and periodically checked on him DUE TO MY SUSPICION OF THE OWNERS. I would occasionally stop by and look in the window and popped my head in every so often. He seemed fine, yet that particular day something happened and I don't know what but now when he gets groomed he is so skitish and acts as if someone is forcefully hurting him, he also has to get muzzled and he was not like this till I brought him to Lake Side Grooming in Nesconest. Its terrible because he is probably reliving what those bastards did every time he gets his nails cut. I had found a groomer that would accommodate me and they allow me to stay with my dog at all times. I stay with him from the bath to the the grooming table and this way I can be sure no one is hurting my dog.

I go to Bark Ave!!! I love them the only thing is because of Lakeside TRASH he has to get muzzled when he gets his nails cut so the Bald headed loser at Lakeside abused or did something to hurt my baby.

Go to Bark Avenue ONLY USE MELINDA!!!

Lakeside Grooming is the best! I have taken my dog there for three years. He is nearly blind and very skittish as a result. Mark and Annie have been only accommodating in taking care of my dog. They go out of their way for him to come in before the other dogs. No request is ever too much to ask. They trim my dog's coat the way I ask them to do so. Mark is so sweet to him. I have recommended these groomers again and again. All of my friends who use them, have only good reports. On top of it all, the shop is clean and well maintained. I never have to worry about my dog when he is with them. He comes home and he is calm and actually happy that he has been bathed and groomed.

DO NOT USE THIS GROOMER!!! We have a sheepdog who had beautiful long hair. We went to Annie before to make sure that she could trim through the long hair. When I met with her she took time to show how to comb through the long hair and go through any mattes. We set our appointment and THOUGHT we found someone who knew what they were doing.

SHE HAD NO CLUE!!! When I picked him up she shaved him down. She said she didnt shave him down and that she used 1 clipper above shaving. IS SHE NUTS!!! Why would we want our 8 month old SHEEPDOG SHAVED!?!??! If she couldnt do the job she should have called us and we would have been fine to find somewhere else. NOT SHAVE HIM!?!?! I am going above and beyond to make sure that this never happens to anyone again and will report Lakeside with before and after pictures of our dog to anywhere and everywhere. DO NOT USE THERE SERVICES EVER!!!

I have two dogs. One dog has gone to Lakeside about three times and this will be the second time for my other dog. All of my prior experiences with this place have been good. Infact, the last time I went here, I was SO happy with how they treated my dog that I even went online and reviewed them with high reccomedations. NOT THIS TIME! I dropped my two dogs off early. Immediately, I was not greated with a nasty attitude by the woman with the gray hair and pink and purple highlights. I told her to be careful with my 12 year old dog because I worry about her because she is so old now. She was so rude, shut the door in my elder mothers face and said to take the dog away because she doesnt want to deal with the worry of it. She was unneccesarily defensive, rude, and unprofessional. I'm wondering what she has to hide? why is she so defensive? I have never been so taken back before in my life. I have a big problem with the way I was treated, my mother, and my elderly dog. I will NEVER bring either of my dogs back here again and you really shouldn't either. If she doesnt understand why I am sensitive towards my 12 year old dog, then how is she treating them when we are gone? I'm also informing better business.

We took our 9 year old (5 pound) terrier to be groomed at Lakeside Groomers on Wednesday, 5-27-09. The groomer told us to leave her there because they were busy. When we returned to pick her up we were told that the groomer had "nicked" her. He did not nick her, he CUT her near the inside of her leg.She has been groomed MANY times without incident. She is a very calm dog, even when being groomed. The groomer, by the way is the owner. He did not charge us, but free does not take the physical pain away from our "baby" nor does it take away the emotional pain from us. DO NOT use this groomer!!

I took my dog who was abused at the previous groomers and he was sooooo happy. My dog received the BEST haircut ever and was so calm when I picked him up. The owners are super friendly and kind. The atmosphere is great. What is really great about it is that it is wide open and there is no hiding your dog. You can watch to ensure that they are doing a great job. KUDOS! I am so happy I found this grooming facility!!!! Thanks Lakeside Grooming!
