Great Place out of the busy strip mall setting so it seems like the dogs are all calmer and happier. I use the grooming salon because I know the gals will know my dog and I know they take extra time because they don't have too many

I had a friend tell me about this grooming salon and I looked them up and saw some good reviews and some bad so I decided to go visit before making an appointment. I liked it when I visited the dogs were happy and the grooming salon was clean and calm so I made an appointment for the next day. I got there early so I checked my schnauzer in using self service and left a note, soon I got a call from a groomer and they said I could pick him up at twelve, which was only two hours from he time I checked him in so that was great. He was so happy and beautiful when I picked him up and the bill was so reasonable! They even told me that they had walked him so he would be comfortable if I was running late. Wow, these gals are nice. True it isn't the fanciest place in town but I think the care is the best. After visiting for myself I think the negative reviews are probably just angry people and there are more good ones than bad anyway. They seem to be busy with happy clients and they did not have any rooms that were off limits to visitors like some places do. I trust them and we will be going back for daycare when summer comes too.

I am so excited to have found this place. This family cares so much about the dogs and not so much about a big advertising campaign. The dogs get to play and play and there is no extra charge for anything they need to be very happy. The

As the owner of this facility I would like to respond to a review. Please see my complete response under The Lazy Dog Ranch listing. I regret the feelings of this client, her dog was compulsive about rolling in aste and even was a feces eater, we gave her advice and free product to help her with this. He was also an arm biter, a clawer and a loose canon in the playyard. We wanted to work with him as she said she had been to other places and was not satisfied, they live closeby and the dogs really needed the playtime, as I understood. I apologize for any misunderstandings about diets but directions were being closely followed regardless of opinions and discussions. Honesty is always the best policy but it isn't always the most welcome one. Please visit us and see for yourself, we are always welcoming and ready to talk.

Pros: individual attention and honesty

.

Pros: Animal friendly people, definitely have dogs best interest at heart, convenient drop off for people with early schedules (biggest pro)
CON:
1. our dog has come home with feces all over him 3 times (never happened at other places)
2. they use their concern for animals in ways that are not ethical... i.e. not doing what the owners ask for (like feeding at dog certain amounts) because they don't feel like it is right. they actually pulled a dog out of a kennel, told me it was a vet's dog, then proceeded to tell me they fed the dog less than the owner requests because they feel the dog is too fat)...
3. this morning they smacked our golden retriever in the head because he was over exuberant in his greeting... he is very responsive to verbal correction and very well trained so it was completely over the top.
4. they told us our golden was fat (he is within breed standards at 72 lbs, we exercise him daily, and our vet said he was perfect) and told us our rescue dog was the perfect weight (she was starved in a garage before she was rescued and you can see her ribs through her very dense and thick fur) even though our vet told us she would need to gain about 10lbs. this makes problem #2 even a bigger problem!!!

overall, good intentions, but terrible ethics and execution of their ideals.

The people at this "salon" are friendly and helpful. Nothing fancy because it's all about the dogs! It's the only place in town that really knows how to clip a Welshie! Love the flexibility on pick ups too.

Pros: Easy to get to

I love this place. Can't say it enough. The service, the family style honesty and personal attention to detail. The extended hours, the self service check in and check out, the ability to pay or run a tab. The country location, the dogs love it here!!.

I took my dog here to be groomed, and I picked her up late for an appointment (the groomer was 1/2 hour late). When I got my dog home I realized that she was MORE filthy than when I first took her in! I tried to resolve this with the groomer, and then the owner and they both resorted to NAME CALLING! The owner herself told me if I thought I could do a better job, then I should just "DO IT MYSELF"!! They wouldn't resolve the issue, and even landed up calling me a "freak" for "complaining" (this was the owner).

I've now spoken with others that have had the same experiences, or even worse ones. I even filed a formal complaint with the state and city . My way of life is usually live and let live, but this business is a disgrace. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND DAPPER DOG SALON TO ANYONE!
