Took my Havanese for her first cut- She had been bathed and brushed - She arrived clean with no mats of any kind- I brought a photograph of the cut I wanted- Quickly I was told to "put it away"-,followed, we know what to do, we do not need pictures- So I trusted the owner at his word- I also specified that the hair should fall over the eyes, as the breed calls for, that the tail should not be touched, and I just wanted a trim and shaping- It was December and cold, and I made it more than abundantly clear that she was not to have a short cut, and especially, not shaved- Only a trim with scissors- When I went to pick her up, poor thing, she was totally shaven, even around the eyes and barely hair left on her tail- It was months before her hair began to be visible- That is how close to the skin my baby was shaven- NEVER AGAIN!!!!

Pros: nearby great toys

Cons: everything else

If your dog needs nothing but a bath I'm sure they can do a decent job. I brought my dog there twice for a specific breed cut and was disappointed both times. My requests were ignored and they just cut the hair as they wished, with complete disregard to my requests. After I pointed out their mistake (they even wrote down my request) they did not apologize. The lady who actually cut the hair (perhaps the owner?) ignored me and the older man was argumentative. Only the son was a decent human about the mess they made of my dog. This was the SECOND time they ignored my requests for a breed cut. They also charged more then they said it would cost - both times. I'm done with them.

Pros: None that I can think of

Cons: Too many bad experiences. I really tried to like them!

I have a wonderful long haired golden retriever who likes to roll around in the dog park and generally needs a bath about once a month. This is the only place I feel completely fine dropping her off at, leaving for the day and then coming back in the afternoon to a perfectly groomed, happy, wonderfully bandannaed angel who resembles one of those dogs you see on TV. Ive had Buttercup in for trims, full baths, basic maintenance, and full summer cuts, and the Shaggy Dog has never dissapointed. She loves them, which is saying a lot for a dog who hates water and they love her. It is well priced for the quality of service, the safety and clean "work stations" you can totally see from the entrance, and they have a really nice staff who accomodate my wierd schedule and never turn Buttercup away. In a city where you have "grooming" places on every street corner, the Shaggy Dog stands out. Id REALLY recommend this place.

Pros: Excellent experienced staff, quality work and professional dog handlers

Cons: a LITTLE pricy, but it IS on the UES, NOT open on Mondays, oddly enough..
