"I was getting gas at the Exxon station at 281 and Bulverde Rd. Next to me was the truck and trailer of this company. The driver proceeded to sweep all the hair and" debris out of his trailer onto the parking lot. I was hoping he would clean up after himself, but he left piles and piles of dog hair for the gas station employee to clean up and happily drove off, without even giving it a second thought. People who litter and don't respect other people's property do not deserve our business. He might be a gifted dog groomer, but that is unacceptable behavior. And yes, I do have pictures, so don't try and deny it.

"The groomer didn't know what she was doing. When I came out and saw what had happened I was shocked and dumbfounded at the sorry sight. Honesty would have been" appreciated. She could have said "I don't know how to groom a
Terrier, so sorry to waste your time with this appt. but I'd rather not disappoint you." She said "I called my boss and she said...people like it done xyz way." The groomer called me 4 times on the way to the appt. She could have called me from outside our house and said: "Please come out and verify that this is what you want." Really it was terrible, traumatic and completely dishonest. Mobile groomers need to have books or web addresses to verify with customers what grooming style is expected and then deliver on that promise. It was the most inept experience any canine could have. Fortunately, after composing myself, I refused to have her "boss" come, cancelled the appt. for our other
and declined to pay. Next I pleaded with a pro in Carlsbad to help us. It's going to be 6 months before
's hair will grow long enough for a
grooming. To become a qualified professional groomer requires time, attention and mentorship.
sadly sends inexperienced, unqualified technicians on the road. The young woman they sent to us had no idea what she needed to do with a most beloved AKC registered Soft Coated
Terrier. Sad. If you're in North County, I wholeheartedly recommend the professionals at
's Custom Grooming in Carlsbad. They are in a different universe than "
" when it comes to expert grooming, honest business and genuine care for canines.

Animal Grooming

Animal grooming is a regular part of pet ownership that you should budget for before adopting a pet. You can do this yourself at home or hire professional animal groomers in your area with storefront locations or mobile grooming services. Groomers typically base their fees on the breed, hair length and size of your pet. Mobile services may cost more, but take less time.

spent a lot of time getting to know the boys, learning their issues.

had been tramatised at a previous groomer and gets very nervous when groomed! Which was good because he hyperventilated and nearly passed out! She handled it beautifully. She was so calm, loving and caring with them. She took a lot of time with

as he needed more time for calming and massage. Herb was quicker because he didn't suffer any anxiety!

It went very well. Our dog looked and smelled great! Auntie loves dog & cats as much as mothers love their children. If you are not caring for you dog properly she will educate you about what you did wrong. Auntie has rescued numerous dogs and paid for proper care for them including vet bills. She also locates new owners for individuals who can no longer care for them, or who have died. I totally trust her with my dog. I have brought her a number of customers, who were unhappy with their groomers. They became customers of hers. I chose her because I had been disappointed with several other groomers. We have used
Oceanside Dog Groomers Provider Name Locked
for approximately 10 years. When drop my dog off, I get to see the results of her work. She does great work on Poodles, Bicons and other fancy breeds. My dog is part Poodle and Bichon. She will groom to your personal specifications.

We’ve been going to them for years, but I wouldn’t give them an A. What we liked about them at first is that it was a
Oceanside Dog Groomers Provider Name Locked
owner and then she has a 1 and a half assistants working in there. They seem to be very good with dogs, but not so good with people. It’s just you know, be appreciative with your customers, I mean for years I’ve been giving each of them a gift card at Christmas saying thanks for what you do, and never have I received a thank you either in person or anything, which makes me not do that anymore and then we’ve seen the groomer outside of the grooming place and she’s not super friendly. Our dog is pretty low maintenance, all he needs is brushing and a bath and he doesn’t even need trimming because that’s the kind of dog he is, so it’s a bath, brushing and maintenance, so it’s all pretty

, he’s not complicated, he’s a very sweet dog, so I

’t really understand. They come from a customer type of business that relationships are important, so we’ve been coming to this groomer for 10 years and we feel that we aren’t appreciated as much. If I had to rate them, I would say that they’re maybe an A- in the dog grooming skills and probably more like a C+ in their customer service or people skills. Their pretty competitive with other pricing. I guess professionally they’re fine.

For daycare they are good. I like that they have cameras, and even though we don't go on a regular schedule they know my dog's name. And its really nice that you can just show up and drop them off, no appointment needed. For grooming, they are okay. The only way I knew that she had seen the groomer was that they put a bandana around her neck. She didn't smell clean, her nails weren't any shorter or smoother. My biggest complaint about
Oceanside Dog Groomers Provider Name Locked
is that every time I would call I would talk to a different person who would give me different information, then when I'd go in there would be yet another person with yet another answer. Whether it was price, schedule or just general questions, I would call and one person would tell me one thing, then when I would go in there would be a different person there and they would tell me something else. Sometimes I got charged for a full day of play when she was there for grooming, sometimes I would only get charged for a half day. On her first visit they were really confusing about whether or not I got charged for 'play time" when she was there for grooming.

This was my first visit to
Oceanside Dog Groomers Provider Name Locked
for my dog and it was absolutely fantastic.
Oceanside Dog Groomers Provider Name Locked
massaged my dog, shampoo and conditioned his coat, trimmed him according to my wishes,
cleaned his ears, trimmed his nails, brushed his teeth and so much more.
She made wonderful recommendations for the care of his coat and he is looks show worthy.
She has personality plus and spent personal time explaining what they had done.
I am so pleased with the service and am delighted that she does such personalized care....
and my dog just loves her now.
Great location and great selection of dog and cat items....lots of Halloween costumes, too.

Great service as always - got us in 15 minutes after I called. we've been using Animal Medical Center (they changed their name) for 3 years since we moved to Tuscaloosa. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats so we are there fairly often and we would not go any place else. we've also used Club Mutts (doggy daycare) plus boarded our dogs there for vacations. They know us and they know our animals and our dogs LOVE going there (especially for day care). Our purebreed schnauzer has had some health issues and they've always bent over backwards to take care of her to include the vet calling us after hours and weekends just to check on her. Care can be expensive but this is inherent in owning a pet with health issues. The vets are awesome as well as the staff and again, our dogs love going there. The cats never but that is just being a cat!!!

He is impeccable. He does things exactly that we want done. He is also great with rescue dogs too and brings them back to their pure breed, we only have rescue dogs. He also comes to our home since he is mobile. He is very contentious and makes me feel like he is part of family. He comes into our home and he is a very nice person. Not only does he do great work, he also has a state of the art mobile vehicle that has heating and air conditioning. Everything is state regulated and the water is disposed properly.

and staff do such a lovely job with my 6 dogs. 4 are 12-15 yrs old and 2 are special need puppies. They are so fabulous with them and care for them more than most parents care for their children. They are professional- timely and really love the dogs. I trust them %100 and the dogs love them back. They will NEVER disappoint and the grooming is always perfect.
