"Even better than I expected!
really listened to how I wanted my dog's grooming to look - for example a round-shape trim for her face," and neat ears, etc. Communications and setting the appointment went smoothly. It was apparent that
has a special way with dogs, mine was very comfortable with him right away

"I have been using them for about eight years. They charge around $22 each day for boarding. They also charge around $40 for the grooming that includes bathing and" nail trimming as well. They are amazing. My dog had seizures and I had forgotten to tell them. One time I was out of town and they called me in the middle of the night to let me know. They take great care of him and they have always been wonderful.

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.

Pet Grooming reviews in Iowa City


I liked the people there very much. They knew my dog’s temperament and didn’t have a problem with him. They spent a lot of time on my dog's paws and used a special shampoo on my dog's dry skin. Scheduling was easy.

They're great. It was great. They were quick. They have veterinarian service. I've used them for check-ups for my cats for years and this is the first time that I used their grooming and they're quick and my kitty is clean and happy and they take good care of him.

we've had her for a long time since about 2003 and she is extremely good with dogs. She knows dogs. She knows their psychology. She knows how to clip them. She's just very knowledgeable about how to groom dogs and how to handle dogs. We also use her as a dog sitter if we go away to board them. She's just excellent.

My Golden was groomed, bathed, had his nails cut -- with the best products. I have had bad experiences prior when his neck was hurt while being groomed. He's a bit of a "nut", so I'm sure previously they put a leash on him, and he pulled and hurt his neck. Not at

It is a great service option and it cuts down on time. This is great for an apartment or townhouse owner. Scheduling an appointment is great and they offer good hours. They have a friendly staff.

3 days after my dog was groomed I had to take him to my vet to have his anal glands expressed. The vet said they were full and couldn't have been done 3 days earlier. I had used this groomer (not the owner but one of her employees) for 1 yr and just started having problems in Sept. The groomer was never on time. This was the second time I had to take my dog to the vet after being groomed for his anal glands to be expressed.

I had seen many negative reviews, however many were from disgruntled employees. This dog had never been professionally groomed, and everything went as expected. I can see why people are turned off by the proprietor/she is stand offish and seems to want to put you on the defensive rather that being an attentive listener.
