I went two different times a few years ago and both times the staff was rude, actually, there was a young girl that checked us in that was nice but she told us the price would be x amount but when we went to leave she was gone and the owner, who was very rude, insisted we pay a higher price! She and another groomer where both too physical (and I know too physical, I used to work in a groom shop and the dogs there were NEVER manhandled like this!) with the dogs they were grooming and on multiple occasions would leave a dog standing on the groom table unattended.\n\nAlso, for self service dogs... the measure your dog's size by the height of the dog's head like idiots, in stead of by the shoulder like any sensible dog savvy person would do!

I took my German Shepherd there to give him a bath myself. The tubs were large enough for him, the ramp was SO much better than steps, the water was warm and the spray hose was long. The shampoo didn't bubble much so I think I need to use more next time. There is a choke chain collar to use to tether your dog. I just put it on collar instead of choke and he was fine. Drying was a hoot because he was blowing his coat. I received friendly and good advice from the staff and there were no complaints even though we were knee deep in fur and I hadn't realized they had closed! I plan on returning and really appreciate them being there.

We utilized the self dog wash today and were given a heavy chain to put around my dog's neck that literally choked her. I took it off and the woman who appeared to be the owner rudely exclaimed ""You HAVE to use the chain!"". Really!?! My dog is very well mannered, has never jumped out of a tub while being bathed, and there were no other dogs present!! What difference does it make?? On top of that, the tubs don't drain properly, they use these wooden planks that are full of slime and bacteria, and the ear wash is some kind of soapy residue crap! DO NOT waste your money or time here, it's absolutely unacceptable. How the owner could even bother to get business is beyond me. I can't find any kind words for the woman!

Groomer injured my dog, appears to have used something on inside of ears to groom and left several cuts. I had to take dog to vet's for treatment! Cost over $100 for vet bill, plus the grooming cost. Called owner and initially she was quite nice, but when I went to get a partial payment of vet bill, owner told me I had to talk with groomer, who argued with me, told me she did not do anything wrong, and then wanted to make it my fault by saying to take better care of my dog -- I did not injure my dog, she did - vet will be happy to testify in small claims court against these people. HORRIBLE PLACE!

If you have ever moved, you know how hard it is to find services like a new doctor, vet, etc. Getting a new groomer eventually pops up on that list. \n\nI found this place via CitySearch, and I'm so glad I did. Pam is the perfect groomer for my 13-year-old cranky Shih Tzu. She is super patient and does a great job.

What a great place to bring your large dog for a bath. You'll get wet, but it's worth it. The staff is helpful in coercing your pal to get into the tub and you can use all the shampoo you need.

I have two Rottweilers and if not enough a beautiful Chow. I take all three of them to Bowser's. They groom the chow as she is a lot of work but I take the other two girls in and bathe them myself. They all are very happy to go and thrilled to see Pam and Colleen. They have an rapport with dogs that puts them at ease and every amenity needed to bring home clean, trimmed and smelling good babies. Their prices are so reasonable and the shop is always clean. I have tried to go to another shop for convenience and there was no comparison with what Bowser's offers. The big dogs get no frowns and lots of love. I recommend it for anyone who doesn't want to use a bathtub or needs top notch grooming.

I have been taking my two Havanese dogs to Ronda at bowsers for about a year. I went through four different groomers prior to finding this place. She will cut them how I want them for a very reasonable price. They are very friendly and seem to really like dogs. My dogs are so soft and beautiful when I pick them up.

We have been bringing our Australian Shepherd to Bowser's for the last 6 years and won't take him anywhere else!!!As far as a do-it-yourself dog wash goes - you can't beat it!! Very friendly staff, excellent shampoos/conditioners, dryers, clippers, gloves, everything you could possibly need!!! They have a separate area for you to dry/groom your dog which is so nice - especially when you need to trim toenails! The staff is more than willing to help if you need any help!My neighbor takes her 2 small dogs in to be groomed, and she's always had an excellent experience too!!!

The staff at Bowsers really knows their stuff! Colleen and her staff keep cards to note how we like our dog groomed (both winter cut and summer cut). They understand that you can trim long-haired dogs, just not too short. When our dog rolled in something, we took him straight in for a self-wash. Colleen took one look at our faces and handed us a special ""stinky"" shampoo. She ran through their smelly protocol - use this entire bottle, use these combs to work through the gunk, then wash again with regular shampoo, don't forget to check your yard when you get home to find the smelly spot he rolled in.........\r\nThe bathtubs are large enough for big dogs, they have ramps for easy use, and plenty of room for maneuvering, both human and canine. Bowsers has plenty of clean towels, brushes and combs, and even oilcloth aprons to keep you (mostly) dry.\r\nMost importantly, Bowsers does not use drying kennels after bathing dogs. Drying kennels can be dangerous (plus our dog just hates them). They use a high-powered blower with low heat in a booth as opposed to a cage. It's a really effective method for removing the loose hair.

This is the best do-it-yourself dog bathing place I have ever used. They make it easy for large dogs to get into the tubs, have tubs of varying sizes, water that is set at the correct temperature, all the shampoos, conditioners, brushes and implements you need for grooming, large drying areas that give you enough room to move around. The shop is kept clean, and there is a grooming service if you want it. The staff is very helpful.
