Pet Grooming reviews in Springfield


I think it went great. I called on Friday and was told they only have a cat groomer there Wednesday - Sunday. I asked when the soonest appointment was and they said Sunday. Perfect. They said they don't give an actual appointment for cats. You just drop them off between 10 & 11 am and they get them done before the end of the day. That made me a bit wary but I went forward with it anyway.

They said prices for a domestic medium hair ranged from $75-90. She said they only increase it beyond $75 "if the cat is really mean" (that's understandable). My cat's pretty docile so I figured he'd be fine. I also had a $10 off coupon so I was figuring it'd be $65 + tax. I think that's a lot to have an animal groomed, but it seems to be on the low end of the going rate for this area. My friend gets his cat groomed at his vet's office for $60 in

but a place I called in

started at $80 or 90.

I dropped him off at about 10:50 am.

was very friendly and nice and explained a couple different cut options. I went with the least embarrassing that would still cool him off. She said that they leave the cats in their carriers outside of the grooming area so they're furthest from the dogs and I saw there was only one other cat there. She explained they rush them in, groom them, then put them back out in their carriers to stress them the least. I liked the fact that she recognized this is stressful for the cats and so they try to minimize that.

She said she'd give a call as soon as he was done. I figured they wouldn't be done for hours... I was wrong. 12:20 pm (1.5 hours after I dropped him off) he was all done and ready to be picked up. It cost me a TOTAL of $65 (I guess tax is included). That was a nice little surprise.

He looks great. He had a cute little bandanna on, the shaved body is very smooth, and the fading of the head into the body looks great, as does his trimmed tail. To be honest, it looks way better than the job my friend gets from his vet's office for $60.

The only downside is that he smells like yummy coconut... which is great for me, but has caused my other cat not to recognize him and she keeps stalking and hissing at him! This isn't

fault, though, and I would DEFINITELY use them again and recommend them. I just might ask next time if they have an unscented shampoo or if they can trim him without shampooing him.

I have been very pleased with them. My dog is a standard poodle, so it takes a highly skilled groomer to take care of.

is able to do this. My dog appears to be quite relaxed when I come to get her. She is 13 years old, so that means a lot!

We have used them for years and always found them to be friendly and on time. Our dog, normally pretty 'high maintenance' does not seem unnecessarily traumatized by the visit and actually wags his tail when we arrive. They do a nice job cutting and styling the dog's fur, adding a small kerchief around the neck for a nice little touch.

I can't speak to other breeds, but they do an excellent classic Scottish terrier grooming. My dog comes out happy and beautiful, sporting a bandanna, and groomed exactly the way I want in 2to 3 hours. They also clean teeth. Located on the backside of the shopping center, lower level, so you can't see the shop from the parking lot.

We have been taking our two dogs here for the last two years, a two year
old Goldendoodle and a 2 year old Cockapoo. For the first year we were
happy with the grooming services, and punctuality of service. Our dogs
groomer left and we have had three cuts now with a new groomer,
butchered is the best description of their cuts. Our Cockapoo is now
terrified of going there, no idea what has happened to her while there
but we will not be going back

I would not recommend this "resort" for grooming at all. I took my

bhere in the morning and started calling THEM around 2pm to find out when I could pick him up. Apparently they let him air dry - which for a
Springfield Pet Groomers Provider Name Locked
takes about two hours - yet they had him sitting there from 8am until 4:30pm. Not only that but now he will not let me touch his paws to trim his nails. I

;t know what they did to my dog but I will never go back there again.

is not cheap, but you do get value for your dollar spent. The day camp is well run and well controlled (you can watch from a screen in their lobby if you want to). The grooming is well done -- better than pet store groomers we had used. Boarding cages provide good space and there are larger alternatives that provide even more space. They'll be glad to give you a tour, by the way. Whether there for a day or a week, our dog comes home healthy and seems to look forward to his next visit.

Wonderful overall experience. Definitely drop your dog off and watch him/her get integrated into the playroom. Prior to coming be sure to have your dog evaluated (they don't take drop-ins) and always have an up to date shot record. There are no exceptions to the policy- which I think is great. Let them know what your pet needs (lots of pets, likes his ears rubbed, scared of men, ect). They will give you a report card each time of your pet's activities and are happy to answer any questions you have.
