I definitely will not be taking my dog back to
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
. I received such shoddy service, and this was by the actual owner of the business! I was treated rudely, and my dog was treated roughly and with impatience.
My dog's coat was clipped totally unevenly, with long
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
of hair left around her paws and under her legs. I also brought the photograph I normally give groomers to show how I wanted my dog's face and ears cut. My dog ended up looking nothing like the photo -- her ears were at least 3 inches shorter than in the photo. I seriously think I could have done a better job grooming my dog myself. That is not the kind of result I expect when I pay a professional to do a job!!!
The incident that convinced me never to use this groomer again came later. A few hours after bringing my dog home from grooming, I realized that half of the top of her head was 2 inches longer than the hair on the other side. She looked ridiculous, so I called and said I would be bringing her back for her hair to be fixed. When I walked in, Peg (the owner, who had groomed her initially) treated me with hostility for bringing my dog back. As I watched, one girl held my dog while Peg roughly grabbed my dog's beard and shoved the clippers over her head. My dog is used to being groomed, but this kind of rough treatment scared her and made her struggle like crazy. I couldn't believe how Peg treated my dog while I was standing there watching! It made me worry about how impatiently and roughly Peg had treated my dog when I wasn't there to see.
Even though the price of a
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
at this place seems low, there are added costs. With how bad of a job Peg did, I'm going to have to take my dog to another groomer way earlier than I would have otherwise.

Amber was prompt and handled my dogs like she had known them for years. Same price ($35 per dog) as a fixed location. I could not be more pleased.

We have been going to
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
for about 4 years. She is a very sweet, compassionate and professional individual that really cares about her work. She calls to remind you of appointments and then calls afterwards to see if you are satisfied with the grooming. She can handle difficult dogs, like ours, that doesn't like to be groomed. She is patient and takes the time she needs to get the job done correctly and makes sure you are satisfied with her work when you pick up your pet. We defintely give
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
an A+ for her rating and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a groomer.

After hearing the worst sounds of yelping I ran out my front door to find my dog writhing in pain, only to find out from the vet that he had two broken front limbs due to
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
either dropping him or allowing him to jump out of his vehicle, only then to find out that he isn't insured for acts of negligence according to his insurance company. If you love your pet TAKE THEM ELSEWHERE!

San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
is a natural at grooming dogs. She came to our NYC apartment. She is patient, kind, offered our dog treats while she worked, gave him breaks (he is old) and clearly loves what she does. The grooming lasted over six weeks the last time, which is good. She uses natural products and he smelled clean when she finished, but not heavily perfumed, as has been the case with other groomers.

even treated a sore paw that Scooter had with some neosporin cream, and saved me a trip to the vet. I highly recommend
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
. This is clearly her calling.

My dog looked gorgeous when I picked her up. She was happy, wagging her newly trimmed tail. She was clean from stem to stern. I have recommended
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
to other neighbors who have also had positive experiences. I am a repeat customer.

San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
came to our house and gave Pearl a bath and saved his coat down short. She was very good with him and did a great job! I explained to her that he has thin skin and cuts easily and she did a great job and he looks wonderful! We decided to go with this mobile service because he was freaked out about going to the groomer that I kept taking him to. One place held him in a cage from 9-4 and cut his skin and the second place we tried held him from 9-4 as well and he hated being in a cage like that and they charged me a different price every time! I can't say enough good things about this mobile service. I will use them again. Thank you

We love
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
and the group at
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
. We have a midsize black lab and we have been using this groomer now for close to a year, we visit monthly. They do a great job with her, they help recommend treatments for times when our dog is experiencing problems such as dry skin or irritation; they also always take time to inform us of anything unusual they see. They are always able to get me in within a few days of when I call, which is great because I usually put it off till the last minute.
I will say that when I moved to the area about a year ago, I tried a few different places that I was unhappy with. We are very glad we tried
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
and now have no reason to go anywhere else.

Our maltese mix and yorkie are always cut very cute and to our specifications. For instance, we request to have her cut shorter in the summer or we can just say "same as last time" and
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
delivers whatever we ask for. She is always on time, often early, spends over an hour on our Maltese mix and an hour on the other dogs, and then schedules our next appointment before she leaves. She is extremely patient and gentle with our slightly grumpy and stiff 14 year old girl. I haven't been back to a "brick and mortar" groomer since we started using
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
and Fates over 5 years ago. Although our other dog has short hair that doesn't require professional grooming, we like to treat her to a spa day now and again with
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
and her coat just shines for days afterwards. I trust
San Rafael Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
implicitly and highly recommend her.

they are so sweet and the first time I took our puppy in they did their best to calm him and ME! when I returned to pick him up I asked if he cried alot and they acted surprised that my dog would cry and said "noo he wasn't a problem" which I know wasn't the case.
they also did extra trimming for a reduced cost for us as it wasn't too much more of a hair cut but still more than a bath
