This place is a diamond in the ruff! After my old groomer moved too far away, I came to the conclusion that it isn’t easy to find a dog groomer you can trust.
It’s very important to me to find a groomer to treat my little guy like the member of the family he is. After a couple bad experiences, I came across The Dog Shop flyer while hangin’ with my pup at The Dakota Memorial Off-Leash Dog Park.
I checked them out online and discovered that though Jessica and Danielle have a ton of grooming experience, this small business had only been open a month. I decided that it was time to give them a try (my little guy was in major need of a summer cut). When I called to make the appointment, I was able to bring him in the same day.
When we arrived it was a clean, and friendly environment. I love the fact that the dogs can roam freely (but safely) while they are there. Non of the dogs seemed to be stressed out at all. My guy was a little apprehensive to go back at first, but when he saw the other pups hangin’ out, he got excited.
I picked him up about three hours later, and he was just laying on the floor observing what was going on. He was excited to see me, but didn’t have the distressed “SAVE ME” look I’ve seen before. His cut looked great, and was a VERY reasonable price for the stress free service provided.
Jessica and Danielle are great!! I will recommend them to anyone looking for a better groomer. So happy you two opened this shop up!!!
I took our new puppy to The Dog Shop for her first nail clipping experience for a couple of reasons. First being, their location is super convenient for me. Second, I had talked with one of the owners about my pups first clipping and I appreciated all of their insights.
I'm not going to lie though, I was still so nervous. My previous dog (who has since passed away) was terrified to have his nails clipped. I'm sure that was in part of the bad experiences he'd had early on. I didn't want that to be the case for my puppy. I wanted her to have a good experience from the get go so I was so worried that she would have a bad experience. Like, what if they accidentally cut to close to the quick (her nails are black)...etc...
This was not the case though! The ladies (Jessica and Danielle) were AMAZING! They were quick and my puppy was comforted and cared for the whole time. Not a peep of distress from her.
I will be bringing our pup back to them in a couple of weeks for her first bath experience which I'm hoping goes just as well.
My two Havanese just love to visit Danielle and Jessica for their baths and trims. I love taking them because they come home so happy and beautiful, and tired from playing in the free roaming environment. Best of all Danielle and Jessica never make me feel bad if the girls are bit tangled!
I had my dog groomed recently by Jessica who did an excellent job on my Yorkie. She really listened to what I wanted him to look like, especially since I had a horrible experience at [a different grooming shop]. I would definitely recommend anyone to take their dog to be groomed at The Dog Shop.
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.
