"My dogs have been here three times without any issues. In Ohio we had the same groomer for over two years and I stayed during the services and know how my dogs react" to the services. They do get anxious and sometimes will move around during the process. Two times my dogs accidentally got nicked but the groomer was completely honest about it. He cleaned the cuts and had me put neosporin on them. Yesterday my boyfriend picked up my dog. He had two cuts on his nose. He was told that my dog did this to himself with his dew claws. The cuts look like scissor cuts and there are two of them so I am having a hard time believing he did this to himself. I am not mad about the cuts. I am mad because I'm pretty sure that my boyfriend was lied to about how the cuts happened. We will not be going back.

"
and her staff are amazing! We have two 7 year old small dogs and have taken them to countless groomers over the years-in West County and" beyond. Our Yorkie has always been a ball of anxiety and so we've always had trouble finding anyone who could groom him, trim his nails, and/or just keep him settled during a grooming visit. Thank goodness we found
-she and her staff are the best! She has great knowledge and expertise in her field, cares a lot for pets, and keeps prices affordable (cheaper than any other place we have visited in West Co.). Our Yorkie has completely changed in temperament since we have been using her services and she really adds the extra effort to make sure he's calm, but also that she gets the job done. we've followed
to
and couldn't be happier. She knows what pets and good business are all about, and now that she started this independent, small business, we hope to never change groomers again. We highly recommend
!

Animal groomers typically offer baths, haircuts and nail trimming, and some may also do teeth cleanings. (Photo by Brandon Smith)

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.

Santa Maria Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
arrived on time and began to get to know my dog. It was his first time being groomed by her and he doesn't care for baths. She was patient and gentle with him and gave him her full attention. She did a great job of washing and cutting him. I was extremely pleased! The cost was fine. She pulled into my driveway and in two hours my little man was handsome, smelling good and back in his bed. We plan to be a regular!

The Groomer was very nice. Our dog looked nice. Fur was not totally dried, which

I took my cat there for fast (if sloppy)
Santa Maria Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
cuts for my elderly cat. This visit was my last. My cat had lost weight due to a thyroid condition (which has since been treated). The groomer and her horrible, snarky assistant both gave me a hard time about my cat's weight. The assistant was particularly mean about it. My cat is a beloved family member, and the unsolicited opinions were uncalled for.

I have used their service once before (Nov 2014). For that appointment, the groomer notified me that she was running late due to grooming a rescue pet that took extra time. When she arrived, she was very professional. Discussed the services to be provided and asked what I wanted done for my dogs. She did a great job trimming my first dog (who has a long, thick coat). In fact, I think it took her longer than expected because she only spent 45 minutes on my other dog. Because they are a little more expensive than the groomer we used at our Vet clinic, we opted to wait until the new year to schedule the next appointment. When I received a text for $5.00 off my next grooming appointment, I called to set it up. I set it for the 23rd (today) at 13:30. At 13:35 I received a text from the groomer indicating she ran into problems and would be running 2 hours late. After discussing the punctuality issue with my husband, I opted to not reschedule. I texted the groomer back to indicate I didn't want to reschedule. I contacted the main office and spoke to
Santa Maria Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
, who asked if he could call me back after I explained the problem. Approximately a half hour later, I received a call from the groomer who explained all the problems she was having with the dryer in the van and grooming the rescue pets before my appointment. She tried to work out a way to make things right, but her only option was to request special permission from the main office to work on her day off. Her next appointment opening was not until the following Thursday afternoon. I told her I appreciated her efforts to make it right and her work previously performed, but I would have to make other grooming arrangements. A half hour later, I received a call from
Santa Maria Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
asking if I wanted to reschedule for next Thursday. I told him no. After all the trouble I had to go through to adjust my schedule for today's appointment, I did not want to go for a third punctuality strike. I told him thank you and that I may consider setting up another appointment with them in the future, but they would really have to make it worth my while. I hope that the punctuality issues will be better communicated in the future. They provide excellent service, but punctuality does not seem to be the case for afternoon appointments.

is professional and personable, he shows up when he is supposed to (and can let you know if there is a cancelation which is great), and he does what he is supposed to very, very well. What's really impressive and speaks to

's cat whisperer gift is that the cat doesn't seem to hate him even though

spends up to 90 minutes grooming him (he is a huge, fluffy cat). I have no idea what the cat thinks, but at least he tolerates it. Really,

is a godsend. The fact that I don't have to cram cats into carriers, listen to them howling and crying while I drive, and then go pick them up again at the end of the day if I can't go get them right away when they're done, is so worth it.
