I am very comfortable leaving my 10 yo cocker with the staff...they know him and he knows them. I even take my 21 mo Pitt there for a bath and this was initially offered!. The prices are reasonable when my cocker has spent the most of theprior winter without a haircut. I just love them and they are not the first groomers that I met in Seattle,,but they are the bestentire winterja am also coq
I attended the best class on Sunday at the Dog Spa of Seattle on how to groom your dog. Tami Vornbrock, the owner and Certified Master Groomer taught the class on how to brush/comb (line brushing and deshedding), oral hygeine (water additives & teeth brushing) ears cleaning and nail trims for your dog. We also learned how to select a groomer. Washington State doesn't have a licensing requirement so it's important to ask if the groomer is certified and a member of the International Professional Groomers. If not, find out where they were trainined. You should also ask about the salon's sanitation protocol. Excellent class!!!
We have had our dog for 13 years and have taken him to a few different groomers hoping to find one that we would be comfortable with. We found that here! They are gentle and loving, and our Australian comes our looking like a million bucks. We won't take him anywhere else. These women obviously love animals, their jobs and it shows. Thanks so much!
The ladies here are awesome. They are a tad bit pricey but I think they are worth it. They love the animals, which makes you feel comfortable to leave your pet with them. I would recommend them to any and all pet owners for grooming. I have never used the other services in this establishment but the other staff are courteous and friendly.
Pros: They are nice and attentive to your pet which makes you feel comfortable.
Cons: Kind of pricey, but, worth it.
This is a doggy- and people-friendly shop in the heart of Columbia City. Each time I go in there, the staff takes a little time to work with me and answer questions I might have - the latest was buying a holistic flea powder. The staff person talked to me about her experiences with it, whether to use it in conjunction with a veterinary-prescribed flea medicine, and how long until I saw results. There are also fantastic toys and treats in there, and they stock healthy, high quality pet food. I also heard that they now deliver to your car - just call ahead of time and they'll bring the food out back to you. I think this is a great shop and don't really understand a few of the negative reviews. Say hi to Kosmo, the resident sweet pea dog.
Pros: Friendly staffers and great selection of treats and toys, grooming salon too.
Cons: Right next to a really good bakery, so I get a donuty snowball pastry every time... Grrr.
I was so happy to find a pet place that could help me with dog's shedding! Not only is there a great groomer there to help me but the young lady in the store helped with this new brush called the ""Furminator"". I was skeptical about the price (very expensive brush) but it is a miracle! It took piles of hair off my dog! The gal helped me out for a long time and showed me how to use it. She let me make a hairy mess right there on the floor! Thanks for having a friendly store! And my dog loved the bakery treats!
Pros: Cool store
Cons: Parking can sometimes be around the corner
They were very short with me and and completely ignored my dog (rescued pitt mix). Just be cause he is a pitt mix. It seemed like they didnt like him. HE LOOKS LIKE A LAB. i had him on a leash. Thankfully i didnt have my pug with me! They didnt want to answer my questions on brushing him, maybe because he looks like a low maintenance dog to a groomer. BUT I WANTED TO KNOW HOW TO BRUSH HIM BETTER- THEY SURE DID DROP THE BALL ON THIS CUSTOMER. I will find someone else to take care of my dogs
Cons: never will go back
Just so nice to have this place in the neighborhood! Amazed at the selection of foods (none of their brands were recalled!) so I feel good about shopping there. Also their prices are really reasonable. They were really helpful when I went in with Otto ( my rescue mutt). Great to have a self serve dog wash, saves having a mess in the house. Anyway I'd reccommend them to everyone.
Pros: Great staff
Cons: Wish other pet stores had the same level of service
I am a long time customer of the grooming salon at Pet Elegance that is now called Canine Design. Tami the groomer and her staff is wonderful. I am writing a rebuttal about the previous review written by an obviously disgruntelled person. That customer claims his dog was returned home because his/her dog was too ""nasty"". Canine Design has sent only sent home 2 dogs in their entire career. The dog has to be really bad in order for them to do that. Even so they do not get mad at the customer. I know because my dog is very dificult and they can handle him and he is not stressed out when I pick him up. Any employee there that would act or say what he claims they said would be fired on the spot. This person is not being truthful and is out to cause trouble. No wonder their dog is ""Nasty"". The dog must get it from the owner.\r
Canine Design Grooming at Pet Elegance is the best!
Pros: Has unique things for dogs and cats
I just moved to the area and needed to get my dog groomed. He was abused as a puppy and has some problems. I was upfront with his issues when I made the appointment and told them again when I brought him in. They told me there would be no problem that they have 10 years of experience. Within a hour they were calling me to pick up my dog saying he is ""Nasty"". I got down there and they told me he tried bitting them. Ok I told them his problems they said it would not be a problem. Has no other dog ever tried bitting them? They shaved his back and he lookes worse than he did when I brought him in. They said I need to really think about how much effort I'm willing to put in to this dog. They said I may need to put him down. What type of people that work with animals would say something like that. They have 10 years experience and the groomer I took him to before I moved never had a problem with him for a whole year. I would not recomend anyone taking there animal here.
Cons: parkin and service
This is a great place to take care of all your pet needs - fun selection, great, knowledgeable staff, grooming, and self-serve dog washes with nice products. Definitely recommend...
Pros: Great service, selection & self-serve wash sinks!
Cons: Park around back for best access.
Tami the pet groomer was very kind and understanding with my pup. You can tell she really loves her work. The poodle I saw on her table that she was grooming was fantastic !! She did a great job with my Poodle also. My pup has never had a better haircut. I recomend Tami to anyone who has had a bad exsperiance at another groomer. She now has a customer for life !!!
Pros: Great Groomer, Kind staff
Cons: Hard to get an appointment, always busy
This shop in the up and coming ""trendy"" Columbia City is worth the trip. Pet Elegance is a full service Pet Salon, Spa. They are pet friendly and have super cool and fun pet supplies. They offer some of the best holistic and natural foods, lots of great items MADE IN AMERICA! The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. I would reccommend this place to Seattlelites. Check it out! then grab some excellent pizza across the street! Columbia city is worth the drive for good places like this.
Pros: great location and selection
Cons: parking can be a challenge but they will help you and you can pull in the alley behind to load if necessary
Great store!!! I love the hawaiian print dog collar for my mutt, Mai Tai and he just loves all of their all-natural treats...especially the carob dipped peanut butter squirrels in the gourmet bakery! Friendly staff helped me with the tricks to wash my dog in the do-it-yourself station without getting soaked in the process! :)\r
Although Tammy is the best groomer that I have had my dog's to the customer service as a whole is really lacking at this overpriced doggie salon. If you are going to charge more money for grooming than a haircut at an upscale salon for a human is charged, the least they can do is be more pleasant and friendly out in front.
Pros: Tammy the Groomer
Cons: Expensive, Bad Customer Care
They have everything a dog (or cat) could wish for. Basic biscuits to Gourmet treats. Practical accessories to feather boas. Gifts for pets & pet lovers. Very knowledgeable & ready to help. The groomer is fantastic. She's very talented & enjoys her work. You can tell she really loves animals. She is so patient & gentle with them. It was a very enjoyable experience. I'll be back.
Pros: Super shop, great grooming, friendly & caring
Best service and nicest people. They really helped me with my new mut, great groomer and the staff answered all my questions. No hesitation about having her groomed there.
Pros: Service, Knowledgeable, friendly
