I've been going to Artistic for the last 3 years with my cat. The cat has been receiving the same services every few months, but yesterday, she received a full shave down for no reason and without warning. Apparently there was some miscommunication between the receptionist and the groomer. I received a traumatized cat. The cat is a purebred Maine Coon, hasn't slept for days and looks like a rat. There was absolutely NO reason for the cat to experience this. They do not listen to you and have no qualms about doing what they want with your pet. They lost my trust.

I have heard many horror stories on the news about this place, a dog lost an eye, one was burnt, another was sliced with something sharp, and one hung to death! To most people our animals are our babies and we know like a child you don't

DO NOT EVER GO TO THIS PLACE. They have killed, blinded, burned and cut off body parts of animals. You can find the information on several websites_ newspapers in Cranston and Warwick and channel 6 news from January 2013. Be Warned OR Be

Lovely place and even better service. The only groomer that I can take my dog to where my dog doesn't shake in fear.

This place is awesome!!! They do a great job with my Champion Purebred Maine Coon Show Cat. And it's never a problem to get him in for an appointment, I wouldn't trust Bec with just anyone. Several of the Judges at our last show commented

I took my cat Poncho on July 9,2010 to get shaved. I had only been there once before with my other cat. They did not follow directions but no big deal. When I picked up Poncho he was bleeding from the chest. I ran back in and yelled, "why is my cat bleeding?" The guy said he had lost a nail!?!?!?! I don't see why a cat should lose a nail while getting his hair shaved but anyway, I am not stupid there are 2 slices in his chest! This is not from his paw. DO NOT TAKE YOUR PETS TO ARTISTIC SALON if you love your pet. A simple shaving of a fluffy cat turned into a cat getting nails ripped out of him and two deep cuts in his chest. I will never forgive myself for bringing him there. He did not deserve that pain.

THINK TWICE - and then think again - before taking your pet here. When I brought my dog in for the first time, the groomer asked me what I wanted done. I said "a trim." She asked me to define "trim." Fair enough. I said that since hair grows at the rate of 1/2" per month and it had been six weeks since his last cut, a trim would be 3/4". She then asked me several questions about the skirt, feathering and other features. She asked me if I wanted the same length all around. I said that, for this breed, there should be a bit longer fur on the legs (what they call "skirt"). This went for several more minutes. When I picked up my dog, I was horrified to see had been shaved! HE HAD NO FUR left except a "skirt" which made him look ridiculous. She had cut much more than 3/4" off. When she saw the look on my face, she asked me if this was not what I expected. I said no, I expected more hair. She replied, "That's why I asked you exactly what you meant by "trim." I said, "That's why I took so much time to answer you." I will never go back there and am surprised that anyone goes there more than once. If you must go, bring a picture of EXACTLY what you want done. Not so much for the groomer, because I don't think they have the skills to even copy a photo, but so you will have a photo of what your dog should look like as you spend the next six months waiting for its coat to grow out to a normal length. P.S. I would have rated this business minus four stars, but that wasn't an option.

On July 3, 2009, I took my dog to get groomed. I had made an appointment 2 weeks earlier. I dropped my dog off at 9:00. This was my 4th time there. All other times, my dog was finished in 2 hours, and the groomer did a great job. For some reason, the groomer I had the 4 times before, was no longer working there, so I had another girl.This was my 2nd time with this other girl. My dog did not want to go in, and I should have taken that as a sign. Instead, I coaxed him in. I told the girl what I wanted and left. I called the salon at 12:30 (3 1/2 hours after drop off) and they told me he wasn't done yet and I would get a call when my dog was finished. At 3:00, I decided to just go in, because by then, my dog had been there 6 HOURS! I went in and the receptionist called the back to see if my dog was done. The groomer said she would call when he was finished. I told him I wanted my dog "as is", because it was already 6 hours. The groomer came out with my dog, didn't say anything to me, and just handed me the leash. My dog was still wet, and all that had done was a bath. No trim, no nails clipped, no ear hairs plucked. Just a bath, then left waiting. God knows what time the bath was given, because it took me 2 hours to comb out the mats that he came home with. (I brush my dog everyday, so he probably had 1 or 2 mats going into the vet, but came out with at least 30 mats). Needless to say, I was livid. The receptionist told me there was no charge, but I could take my dog again next week and pay then. I told him I would rather pay now because my dog would not be going back there again. I explained to him that 6 hours is completely unacceptable and inexcusable. He agreed with me. I left there very upset. Combing out all the mats for 2 hours was certainly not fun. And, he must have had something happen to his paw, because he won't let me touch it. Unfortunately, since dogs can't talk, I will never know what happened. But I do know one thing, it will never happen again.

We have 3 dogs and a cat. Our family moved to RI last year and I had been to 4 places since I have been here including 2 different "big box" pet stores and 2 grooming shops. I was not happy with any of them. I didn't know what I was going to do but then I ran into a couple of people with dogs that looked good and I started asking where they had them done. Artistic kept coming up. When I saw them on a commercial and checked out their website, i decided I had to give then a try. The person on the phone was really nice and they were able to fit me in the same day (Saturday)! When I pulled up to the place, I was able to see some of the dogs coming out. They looked good and were wagging there tails. The people inside were very friendly! You can tell when you walk in that they really love dogs and cats!I had 4 different groomers and I have to say that I was very impressed with how each of my pets came out! A week and a day later, my pets STILL look and SMELL GREAT! My golden/Sheppard mix Max has bad skin and they were able to recommend a special shampoo treatment. he doesn't stink anymore, he's not biting and scratching himself, he doesn't have big giant pieces of skin flakes all over him, and he's not losing clumps of fur all over my house. He looks like he did when he was a puppy!I did not want my shih tzu shaved but the girl said it was notted and might have to be. I really wanted a puppy cut so she told me that she would see what she could do if I didn't mind it taking a bit longer. You can't imagine how surprised I was when I picked her up! The groomer said that she was able to slowly work the nots out and she was able to give her the cut I wanted. SOPHIE HAS NEVER COME BACK FROM A GROOMER LOOKING THIS GOOD!!!! She looks like a stuffed animal! She is so clean and so fluffy!Our beagle Lucy just got a bath but she came out sooooo shiney! We don't have a handful of her fur in our hand after we pet her anymore. And her nails don't click on the hallway floor anymore.Our cat Ballou is a Persian. He was very notted because we hadn't brought him to anyone since the move so he had to be shaved. he has been shaved before so it wasn't a shock to us to see him that way. What is a shock is that there are not razor marks all over his body where they shaved! Ballou looks so smooth and he smells just wonderful!I can not believe how reasonable this place is for the work that they do! Our family has lived all over the US as well as overseas and this is THE BEST PLACE that we have EVER been to! We WILL BE BACK! Artisitc, you have customers FOR LIFE!

I can't say enough they always have my dogs ready on time or b4 they promise and they always look neat and smell CLEAN.we have 2 labs that shed like crazy they recommended furminator on them and the younger had a reaction.when i discussed this with the groomers they were very curtious and explained what the reaction was and offered other alternatives they genuinely had concern for the dogs sensitivity to the shampoo.
They also made note of this on the dogs card so every time the dogs go for a cleaning everyone who grooms them is aware of it.Thanks artistic for caring....

Please be fore warned. Do not go here. They have a bad reputation they kill my sister's cat when she took her in for grooming. And they killed another dog a few years later. I am not kidding. True story.
