Never, ever, ever again! Let me first say that I had my dog groomed here several times over the last year and was generally happy with the grooming. I was always a little perplexed that I could drop my dog off at 8 am in the morning and that he wouldn't be ready until 5 or 6 pm. It also concerned me a little that he always relieved himself as soon as we got out the doors like he had been holding it for some time. But today was the final straw. I have had my dog groomed numerous times here over the past year and was always charged around $90 for his breed. When I picked my dog up today I was told that my charges were $111. When I inquired if they had raised their prices, they indicated that they had not, but that they had determined that my dog was a different breed. My dog is 7 years old, we've owned him nearly since birth, and not once has he been referred to as the breed they suddenly self-determined. Not his veterinarians, not the shelter that we adopted him from, no one. When I asked why this was never brought to my attention at all the previous groomings, they advised that I should be happy that I received a discount for the previous groomings. What??? When I asked why the previous groomers didn't raise the issue, they indicated that the current groomer was a manager, which I guess makes her a self proclaimed dog expert. I guess that makes the other groomers dipsticks? To recap, I dropped off my dog for grooming services at a previously agreed upon price (the price that it had been every time before) and once the services were completed, Yuppie Dog decided to change the price on their own initiative based on their self serving breed designation. If they really believed that my dog was a different breed then they should have at least contacted me, advised me of the new price, and asked if I still wanted the service. They didn't do that at all or even try to act apologetic and rather told me I should be happy that I got a discount before? Come on! I'm half tempted to have my dog genetically tested just to prove a point. And to be clear, we aren't talking about the difference between a chihuahua and a st. bernard. The $90 paid before was for a breed that best fits my dog that includes a large breed with a double coat. I wouldn't recommend this business to anyone and plan to duplicate this review at every available opportunity and will file a complaint with the better business bureau.

This place is filthy. I have seen them clean, and all they do is spray what smells like Fabuloso. They scrub it with brushes and then spray it off. Sure it smells good, but it's unsanitary! My dog has had kennel cough multiple times, along with rashes, gnarly cuts (unexplained mind you. They never tell me.) and unexpected vet bills. NOT WORTH HAVING YOUR DOG IN IN A FILTHY, DANGEROUS PLACE WHERE THEY DON'T CARE ABOUT OUR BABIES!! Also, the husky mexican with the rainbow piercings, acted snide. He made a rude comment to me about my dog, I am a PAYING customer. He was rude, and I will not be treated like that in a public facility! I took no mind. I know my dog better than he does. Moral here: THEY CARE ABOUT MONEY, NOT DOGS! The way they talk to each other! I have seen first hand how they talk to each other! You would think that since they have onlookers, they would refrain their language, and sometimes it directed to the dogs! Outrageous. BE WARNED! This place has a deadly front! I am NOT going there ever again. My baby deserves better.

Since moving to Houston Yuppie Dog has been our choice for Grooming and Boarding. The facility is very clean and animal friendly and the staff is extremely polite and welcoming. Even though we passed several groomers on the way to yuppie, they are the best..... I have and will continue to recommend Yuppie dog to all who will listen. Thanks to all the staff for the care given to our additional family member.

This place is awesome! How can I start? The facilities are super clean, spacious, they have indoor and outdoor play areas and to top it all off, they have a great outdoor salt water pool. The best thing is that the pool is included in the cost of daycare for all the water loving dogs.

The staff is very friendly and very caring with my dog. My dog Max loves to go there and becomes very excited every morning when he hears me ask "Do you want to go to Yuppie?' The staff even sends me the cutest pictures of Max playing during the day.

I've also boarded Max at Yuppie Dog and what I like the most is that they include playtime which make me feel at ease that Max is not locked up all day. The boarding area is spacious and they are very hip and urban.

I've also groomed Max at Yuppie Dog and they are very good at it. Their prices are all inclusive and they also clean Max's teeth every time he goes.

Honestly, I found the best place to take Max. We LOVE IT!

It is hard to find a place that REALLY likes the animals -- here Cynthia and her staff do such a great job! Any time you need anything or have questions -- just ask for Sarah, she is the manager and it seems like she is always there. If you ever pass by and see a crazy Jack Russell in the pool - it is probably my dog. She and her friends play all day, and she comes home exhausted, what more could a parent want. And don't forget to check out the 'toys' - haha, the collars, treats, etc. in the shop, they always have the coolest stuff. Give them a chance and check them out - tell them you heard about it from Jezebel - they will get a kick out of that!

This is a mixed review.... I like the staff and like what the dog care facility is trying to do.... HOWEVER, they have way too many dogs and are slammed busy. Both times I have taken my dog there for boarding he has come home sickly. The first time he caught whip worms and the second he was covered with cuts, scratches, red blotches, and itched excessively for several days. It is the nature of the beast I guess and I can't fault this facility for it. It is clear though that they are one of the busiest in town so be prepared for lots and lots of dogs mixing with yours. I think I will next try boarding where they have private rooms and don't interact so much with each other.

Pros: Best Dog Care Facility EVER

Cons: No negatives at all

We recently adopted a dog who is still pretty wary of new places and people. The staff at Yuppie Dog took the time to make her (and us) feel comfortable. They emailed me with updates. We will definitely be back.

Pros: Caring staff and happy dog

Out of all the groomers, my dog feels very comfortable at this place. Our dog had bad experiences with other groomers and gets very anxious when going to groomers. The owner spend the entire time with our dog to make him feel home while the groomers were working on him.
Hands down the best dog care place we have seen. We are very impressed and would recommend this place to all pet owners.

I took my two big dogs to Yuppie Dog for a day of grooming and daycare and was very happy to pick up two very clean and happy dogs. The staff obviously took great acre of them and size was no issue as they were able to wash and clip both dogs nails. They were even wearing ties (like in their logo) when I picked them up. Nice touch Yuppie Dog. One other thing to mention is that there is a saltwater pool on property for the water loving dogs (my dogs are not water dogs). Seems like a great bonus for labs, goldens, or any kind of water/ bird dogs. Next time I leave town I'll be dropping the hounds at Yuppie Dog for boarding. Thanks for great (much needed) service!
