The girl did my Australian
first and he came back happy and looking good. Next, my pomeranian went in and came out fine. My baby, my beautiful sweet, timid sheltie went last. I had noticed that the girl, when finished with the dogs would just carry them up to my door and knock. Well I was waiting for Marly to get finished and I receive a phonecall from another groomer in the company to tell me that she lost my dog and went running after her. Apparently while carrying my girl up to the door, she dropped her and it scared her and she took off running. Instead of simply knocking on my door real quick and getting my attention, she chased after her. Had she knocked on my door to get me, I would've called after her and she'd have heard my voice and came to me. By the time the girl(a different girl) called me, she was already way down the street and left the neighborhood. For the next 3 - 4 hours I had my kids, mom, and some neighbors helping me to look for her. There was a couple helping as well and I thought they'd were just being good Samaritans, but later found out they were the owners. After all of that time in the heat, I became hysterical because I had a bad feeling I wouldn't see her again. I decided to drive way down about a mile down TPC Parkway and went into another neighborhood and stopped to ask some yard workers if they saw her. They told me they had JUST seen her running down TPC Parkway. That is a very busy street and cars go fast. My sense of dread just heightened to a new lever. We raced out of the neighborhood and didn't have to drive very far before we saw a group of people in the middle of the road huddled around something. My heart sank. I saw my beautiful Marly's body just lying there. My 14 year old daughter and I just started screaming. We had to driver up and pull a u-turn and I stopped in the middle of the road and flew over to her. She was barely alive. It looked bad. I picked her up and gave her to my daughter to hold while I raced to the emergency vet about 20 minutes away in rush hour traffic. It was one of the worst things I have ever had to go through. She ended up dying half way into the drive. We knew the moment she passed. She still has a bandana around her neck but had
and stuff all tracked in her hair from being out in the brush all day long in the heat with no water. They cleaned her up and we said our final goodbyes to her. We were hysterically crying. My baby was dead and died a violent death after suffering all day. It sickens me what happened. I know the girl didn't mean for it to happen, but the issue is there wasn't any kind of standard followed for how they bring the dog back to it's owner from their vehicle to the front door. I hope they have changed the way they do things and have more firm rules put into place so that nothing like this ever happens again. They didn't charge me for the grooming and they paid the bill for bringing her in the the emergency hospital and then cremation. I never pursued anything further although I think I should have.

Dropped off my dogs for a bath, my first time at
. My dogs were stuck there for 10 hours. That is way to long. Maybe for a walk-in...but I had made an appointment. They did not tell me when I dropped them off they were that busy. I forgot my Angie's List coupon (save 5%) but when I mentioned it, they looked at me like I had 3 heads. They did not give me the discount...c'mon it was 5%. My dogs smelled great and I was happy with their bath. I'm disappointed that it was not a better experience. Won't be going back.

We have two very energetic dogs, and
Johnstown Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
handles them with ease. She is great with animals, and knows how to keep them calm during grooming, petting and talking to them the whole time. Plus she is wonderful with our three year-old son, who is very curious and likes to watch and "help." :)

brings all her own equipment, and has a handy shower attachment she uses to bathe the dogs in our tub. She then grooms them one at a time, thoroughly cleaning up the hair clippings afterwards. It is an awesome service, and much less stressful on our pups to be able to stay at home, and we also love visiting with

You know the saying, "A good dog is a tired dog"? This place will help you have a good dog!
I've boarded my 8 month old puppy here twice and taken her countless times for daycare. She loves the daycare, in the morning I'll say, "ready for daycare" and she'll run to the door and drag me to the car! When we pull up she gets really excited in the car too! The best part is, she comes home exhausted from playing all day and sleeps like an angel. I've been using the daycare a lot more now that it's so hot and I can't walk her as much.
The pricing seems reasonable to me, especially considering all the benefits. This place doesn't charge you extra for playtime or anything like some places do. They will also post videos to facebook of the dogs playing - it makes my day when I see my puppy in one of them!

It went really well. The attendant and groomer helped me get started and it was easier than I thought. The store is set up for do it yourself or full service grooming. They have a small amount of retail from supplements to dog food and healthy, made in the USA treats. I will be going back, it was fun and a lot cheaper than having a groom shop do it, although the prices for full service grooming is very reasonable. The store was clean and staffed with very knowledgeable staff.

I have no idea which of this business's locations is ultimately responsible for this experience, so I have submitted the review to both--I feel certain they're all connected, so it hardly matters. This grooming service provided me with the absolute worst experience of my dog's life. I entrusted my Great Pyreenes to their care for a bath,
and to make a long story short, a perfectly healthy, robust, and
enormously active dog went into their van and came out two hours later
having lost complete use of her back legs. Emergency $6000 surgery
later, her recovery is still uncertain, and the completely rude and
dismissive owners are refusing to take any responsibility whatsoever for
the incident--forcing me into legal action. This is a dog who has been
groomed elsewhere for 10 years without one problem whatsoever, and
because I thought the mobile service might be easier on her (imagine the
irony of that!), the worst possible outcome occurred. The groomer also
refused to allow me to stay in the van with my pet, telling me the
process would take 2 hours, so literally anything could have happened in
that time frame. If you love your pet, please heed this advice,
regardless of what experience you may have had with this service in this
past: STAY A MILLION MILES AWAY!!!!

is phenomenal! She is responsive, responsible and goes above and beyond. She always checks in with us to confirm our dates and then checks in during our vacation via text so that we know all is ok at home.
She cleans the litter boxes and even picks up the dog poop in the back yard so that we come home to a nice clean home with happy animals.

has made it possible for us to go away with no worries - our chocolate lab can't be boarded due to a health issue.

read up on the health issue to ensure that she knows what to look for when she watches the dogs. I much prefer our dogs and cats stay at home in a familiar environment so this works out for all of us.
She's been our pet sitter for a few years and we've had nothing but great experiences with her.

It went great. We left the groomer we have been using because of their attitude. We received nothing but smiles from the groomer and every one else at the
Johnstown Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
. But more importantly, they greeted our girls with smiles and open arms. They did a great job and we will definitely be using them again.

cancelled 3 appointments with me. Then on the 4rth try, we scheduled a 9:30am appointment. She texted me at 7:39am to cancel again, and then immediately sent another text and saying she'd come. Then at 9:45am, she texted to say she was on her way (we had a 9:30am appointment). A 1/2 hour later at 10:15am, I called her to see how close by she was. She informed me she was near URI (which is 40 minutes from my house). Her 9:45am text said she was on her way but when we spoke at 10:15, she said she was still near URI (?) If she were to leave URI at 10:15am, she would have arrived at my house close to 10:55am, which was almost 1.5 hours late. I said no thank you. This is too unreliable for me.
