4 Paws up! They do a great job within a reasonable time at a fair price. And, my dogs leave as happy as they arrived. Less stress for the dogs! But don't tell everyone! We don't want them to get too busy!
I called ahead of time for the appointment. They were recommended to me by my vet. It was extremely conveniently located. There is a big room they do the work in, but the dogs are allowed to play in that room as well. No cages. It is very clean and doesn't smell.
We have been bringing our golden retriever Ellie here for years. She came from an abusive situation and the ladies at the Dog Shop take the time to ensure that she is comfortable and that it is a fun experience for Ellie. Ellie actually gets excited about going to the Dog Shop. She loves the interaction with the other dogs, especially Huckleberry. They do an awesome job grooming her. Always professional and friendly service!
I've taken my Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix here a few times now and he always come back snowy white and smelling good! I love the feel of the place - it's always full of happy dogs just running around playing with each other. From time to time I see a dog in the back who is segregated but I can tell they are aggressive and that's why they're separated.
Everyone who works here is so nice and they always seem to remember my dog and comment on his changing coat each time. He's always happy when we comes out of The Dog Shop and he's a champion moper with a serious sad face when he feels like it so if he was upset about the experience -we'd be able to tell.
I once took my dog to another groomer and I'm still traumatized by the experience. We've since moved into Lake Oswego and will still be going to the Dog Shop - that's how awesome they are!
