I swear I have tried every local pet groomer on Capitol Hill at least twice, and until I went to the

Store (or Bonnies as I always hear the store called), I just assumed that my pets were terrified of groomers. But I discovered that my pets were just terrified of other groomers. They are fine at the HDS, in fact, the groomers were able to bathe my cat -- who every other groomer said was impossible to bathe. I also love that they are quick -- in by 9, out by early afternoon. The staff is so kind, and you can tell that they really love animals. The price charged for my dog's grooming is average, but I found the price for my cat's grooming to be higher than other places. Still, I'll pay it because my pets come home happy and pretty!

When I was getting ready to go back to work after having been home for several months, I looked long and hard for a doggie daycare for my puppy. It was a frustrating

. Most of the daycares I saw closed at 7:00 PM, which seemed ridiculous given the amount that you pay for the service. The types of people who use doggy daycares don't leave work at 6:00 every night to make sure that they can pick up their dog before 7:00. Or, some that do stay open later charge a surcharge or charge by the hour, which makes them very expensive. With the largest package,

is about $10 less per day than most of the doggie daycares around (even those in the suburbs). I was hesitant to buy such a large package since they weren't refundable. I had heard horror stories from other dog owners whose dogs had been banned from various kennels for random things and, though she is the friendliest dog in the world, I feared that, as a puppy, my dog could randomly experience the same thing and I would be stuck with a large unusable credit. I took my dog in for a free trial day (most places charge extra for the trial) and the person on duty (I even thought she was the owner because she was so knowledgable and helpful) explained that the credit could be used for other things that they sell, which included the food I feed my dog that isn't sold that many places. She also assured me that my dog was fitting in great and would have no problems attending daycare. Buying the package (even the smaller packages) allows you to pick up your dog any day before midnight without any extra fees and for those who live in popular neighborhoods (unfortunately we do not), pickups and drop offs are also included as part of the packages.

also has "valet barking" which is helpful in the mornings, though lately the attendant has often been away delivering a dog to the play area when I pull up, so I have had to take my dog in myself, but its very handy otherwise. Also, when they accidentally sent my dog's

and leash home with a dog with a similar name, they replaced it with a much nicer set.

does now have webcams and I hear that they have made many improvements since their previous location. I can see how they can be a little nonchalant when you inquire about some of the signs of rough play (per the other member's report from 2007), but for the most part, the owners and staff and incredibly caring. They put a lot of effort into dog rescue and always have rescue dogs there and advocate their adoptions. I'm sure there's a lot more that I could say, but for the most part,

gives you so much more for the money than any daycare I've seen!

Owner's attitude is outrageously arrogant. It seems this business does not care to have new customers & caters only to those who might appear to have social connections that might be of benefit to Chi Chi, who despite my appointment kept me waiting almost 45 mins while she gossiped with another dog owner and was insulting to both me & my dog. I do not have a pedigree, though my dog does, but apparently we would be more welcome if we each had one. The second visit yielded another lengthy wait in the lobby while whispered gossip & visiting went on. This time my dog did not seem to pass muster again, her collar being declared as being "too tight," which it is not, and her grooming declared inadequate. When I pointed out that she had in fact been last groomed by Chi Chi, I was met with an argument to the effect that she would not have groomed her "this way." We did try another visit & equally insulting experience so that is it for us & Chi Chi's of Georgetown. Chi Chi is extremely cavalier and obviously relishes in being spoiled by her customers, so if you want to play that game, this might be the place for you.

We feel they do an adequate job most of the time. Sometimes they cut too short, or mess up on his grooming, rather than be up front about it, they don't tell me and I notice when I get home. I also don't believe they take him out enough to relieve himself.

They always do a great job. I take my dogs here every once in awhile for a special treat for them and they love to go there. They take really good care of my animals all the time. I can trust them not to do any harm to them when I am gone. I would highly recommend them to any dog lover.

This shop is great. The quality of their work is excellent and their appointments are followed always on time. I would definitely hire them again just, because I have been very satisfied with the work they have done for me.

Make an appointment in advance because they are always busy. They do high quality work, my dog always looks its best and I appreciate the care that they show. I have and will recommend them to others in our area.

Excellent! I specify that I don't want any perfume used on the dog, and they comply. I specify the type of cut I want; no top knot, regular length all over, longer in winter, shorter in summer, and they follow my request perfectly. I have been very happy with their service. The receptionists are friendly and helpful and sympathetic to my dog (who doesn't like getting wet). They also report that she is well-behaved and quiet there (and that is her personality, so I do believe them).

uses excellent shampoos and conditioning products. They are mild, and gentle promoting healthy skin, and beautiful coats. Our dogs feel rejuvenated and refreshed after their regular visits. They instinctively feel safe and comfortable at Chichies.

The place is welcoming, open, clean, offering both day care for dogs, as well as grooming. Different sections are kept for different sized dogs. Hours are convenient. The staff is friendly and competent. Owner/operators love dogs and have good standards of care. Dogs are walked and can be fed if necessary. I have not boarded my dog yet but have no hesitation. A nice feature is a video camera that is accessible on the Internet to check in on the pooch. Also, you can drop by without an advance appointment.
