We were very pleased with W.O.P. and Snoopy looked terrific when she finished her "spa day". Our dog lost ten pounds and ten years in one afternoon. I only wish they could do that for me! I'll never take our dog anywhere else!

Though I have never written a review I am compelled to do so in this case. My dog, Lafayette had a very long winter coat. It wasn't matted but definitely was a hand full. Carol and Sue of "Wizard of Paws" answered all of my concerns prior to Lafayette's first visit. They were both very patient with what might have been viewed as a somewhat overly concerned dog owner. When I picked Lafayette up after his "spa" day, his appearance was more than I expected. Carol had fashioned his cut exactly as I had instructed and Lafayette did not appear to be stressed out by his experience. If you are looking for a excellent job of pet grooming by staff that cares about your animal and delivers good customer service then this is the place to go. Though pricey, I felt very satisfied with the service. Look at it this way, if you and your companion are satisfied with the service, then it is priceless.

I wouldn't think of taking my dog anyplace other than the Wizard. Not only do they do an excellent job on my toy poodle, there is a nice fenced in yard w/ a double gate system - dogs have a pleasant place to hang out while waiting for p/u. Dogs don't have to spend their whole time in cages - they can be free to roam the shop (as long as they are friendly). Dogs love it there!

For 2-3 years I have brought my two dogs and an occasional rescue or foster to the Wizard. Its not cheap -- $65 for small breeds -- but I've tried several other area groomers (kutz for mutts, etc.) and none compete in terms of quality and care. Carol and her assistants are good at following clear, reasonable instructions and they're detail-oriented and thorough without taking 5+ hours or traumatizing your dog. My dogs don't like going, but what dog enjoys a trip to the groomer?! If you are reasonably disappointed, Carol will work with you to get it right and she'll take good notes for next time.

After years of going to Wizard of Paws, trying to find a groomer closer to home I took my first dog to some local Oakland and Alameda groomers back in the 90s. After some truely horrific experiences I returned to Wizard of Paws and have taken all my dogs there since. \r\n\r\nJust go there! You'll be pleased with the results and your dogs will thank you. :-)

I had to dogs in the early 90s that I took to Wizard of Paws. I loved the work they did, the dog loved going there but it was really out of the way. So, I tried every other groomer in the Oakland and Alameda area I could find. The Dogs either came back an absolute mess or traumatized by the experience. Well, 2 dogs later I am TILL going to Wizard Of Paws and I still love the work they do and my dogs adore them. Carol does amazing work on my Bichon especially when you consider how litttle I brush her myself.

I do not recommend this place at all. My experience with the owner, Carol is that she didn't listen to my specific requests about detangling the hair mats of my dog. I simply asked her to cut off the matted ends, not to shave the dog, and leave his long double coat. What I received was a dog that looked like it just came out of surgery with his front paws completely shaved, as well as his neck area. Instead of hearing my specific instructions, Carol chose to do what she thought was easier for her. I have asked for my money back, and await the return of my check. Incidentally, I was charged an outrageous fee of $70 for the type of service I didn't request!
