Portland Pet Groomers Reviews

"We took our recent rescue Westie in to to be groomed. We were greeted warmly, asked specifics about what we'd like him to look like when they were done, and he came out looking great and was happy. A neighbor had recommended

specifically and we've learned she's an expert on Westies. Definitely will go again. Haven't used their boarding services yet but plan to in the near future."
"I was very pleased with the way this business is run. I have a small dog, and it seemed that everyone else who was having grooming the day I brought her in also had a small dog. I imagine this was not an accident. The groomer came out to talk with me when I dropped her off, to be sure she was clear about what type of haircut I wanted. The job was done on time and my dog looks wonderful. I will use this groomer again next year, or possibly sooner."
"There is absolutely no way I would take my dog to this business...customer service is critical to me an this place lacks it from start to finish."
"I had originally rated this vendor very poorly and indicated I would not use their services again. After submitting my review, I reached out to the owner of the company and had a discussion with her about the services I had received as well as my review. She was horrified by the poor service and indicated she was interested in keeping my business if I would allow her to do so. She made me a more than reasonable offer and her team was out to groom my dog in about a week or so. As always, he was happy & so was I. I certainly hope I don't continue to have challenges with their scheduling (I haven't used them in a couple months but need to schedule another groom very soon). Additionally, I just received an email from them asking if, as a customer, I had any suggestions for employees who would be able to meet their high standards. While I recognize I'm not the only customer who received the email, I was impressed that they would come to their clients to ask for recommendations. I'm thrilled we were able to come to terms and, as I stated previously, I'm hopeful I won't have any additional scheduling challenges with them in the future! :)

My previous post regarding them:

I've used

several times to groom my Lhasa Apso. I like the fact that they come to my house and he doesn't have to be with a bunch of other dogs in an unfamiliar environment. The service would be fantastic if they could just handle showing up on time!! The past several grooms they've been in the neighborhood of an hour late and today, the first beautiful Saturday of the year, they were supposed to arrive between 8:30 and 9:30. I was up at 8:00 just in case they were early (what was I thinking) and I called when they hadn't arrived by 10:30, then again when they hadn't arrived or called by 11:30. I finally received a phone call around Noon from someone who was laughing and giggling while explaining they had issues with generators in their vans. I wonder, did they not know about those issues at 8:30 when they were supposed to have been here? These people charge a hefty premium for their services and, if this is how they "treat your animal like a star" they've clearly got a different vision of how you treat a star than I do. I wouldn't waste my time with them until they learn how to treat a customer with respect!!
"We took our dog to Lexi Dog for grooming and he was left alone with his leash long enough to eat all four feet of the cloth leash. They did not inform me until it was time to pick him up. The leash sat in his system for over six hours - I had to rush him to Dove

where he underwent life saving, emergency surgery to remove the leash. Had they called me immediately, the doctors could have had him throw up the leash, or use an endoscope to remove it. But, due their negligence - he could have died, and had to undergo a surgery that cost us $3300. plus medications. I do not recommend this place."
"The appt was all handled through email. They were a little off schedule, but I was notified of the delay in a timely manner. The lead groomer came to the door and asked what I wanted done. She explained their set-up, and then they took all three of my dogs into their RV type vehicle. The whole process took about an hour and a half. My dogs stayed calm throughout, as the groomers were obviously very experienced in working with all kinds of dogs."
"I'm so happy

is under new management. I had some problems with this groomer previously, but that is no longer the case as the place has been completely remodeled and thoroughtly cleaned with brand new equipment. and groomers. Formerly, my dog had been treated roughly, and the I brought my dog in today and he was pampered and treated kindly, and came out happy and beautiful."
"We just moved to Portland, and were so fortunate to find a wonderful groomer for our two portuguese water dogs on the first attempt!

was just great to work with as she is very professional and attentive to our requests. Our dogs were there for just 3 hours, and they looked and smelled fabulous when we picked them up! She was kind enough to suggest that we call after a few hours to obtain a more exact pick up time-so helpful! And once the dogs were home, it was evident that they had a great experience-no signs of stress as we had witnessed with previous groomers. Will be calling for another appointment! Thanks!"

was seeking a new groomer in East Portland since our usual groomer was transferred to a Vancouver shop. He called

and asked if the groomer knew how to groom Bichons. This is our second Bichon during the past 19 years and we have learned that some groomers clip Bichons to look like poodles instead of Bichons.

was assured that the groomer had experience grooming Bichons. He made an appt. and took our dog into the shop. We received a phone call when our pet was ready. When we picked up our pet, a child (perhaps 5 years old?) was at the counter and asked us if our dog had a leash. We did not leave a leash at the shop. The little girl gave us our pet. The owner/groomer came out of the back room to tell us our pet was very wiggly but cute; she didn't elaborate if the dog's wiggling created a problem for her. She told us the cost for the grooming. I wrote a check for $35.00 and included a $6.00 tip. After we left the shop,

and I noticed that our pet's fur was not as white as it usually is after a bath. Her haircut was not smooth and her fur looked choppy. We also noticed a raw spot above her right eye, like she has been shaved or nicked with a scissor. By Sunday,

3rd, the raw spot was more noticeable. Fortunately, the raw spot healed and I did not take our pet to the vet.

I'm disappointed that the groomer did not tell us about the injury to our dog. I'm sure it was an accident; the dog was probably wiggling on the table as she was being clipped. If she had told us about the injury, we would not feel she was unprofessional. We will not be returning to this groomer.
"Excellent! The groomers showed up w/i their time window - 2 groomers. The dogs were comfortable with them and I was told they behaved well. My female was a bit scared of the dryer (it is very loud), but otherwise - everything went smoothly."
