Dog Grooming reviews in Del Mar

    Do It Yourself Dog Wash
    Horrible. A nightmare. I brought my dog for a nail trim explaining I didn't have an appointment but asked if they had time, how much it would cost and how long it would take. The Owner said they had time, it would cost $10 and take '5 seconds'. I said OK and they put my dog on the table but somehow couldn't restrain her and she fell to the floor. (This dog is 15 years old, not a big dog and certainly not feisty!). The groomer apologized (I think, it was in Spanish.) Looking back, I should have left then. I asked how much for a 'wash'. The Owner said $30. So I said OK. Then I looked over back at my dog and she was getting very stressed and I started to worry that the 'groomer' (and I use this term loosely) really knew what he was doing with the nail trim. Then the groomer said something in Spanish to the Owner who said it would now be $40 to wash her. I looked to the Owner to question the sudden up-charge, then back at the groomer who by then was applying what appeared to be styptic or blood clotter on my dog's paw. I asked him what he was doing, did he cut the dog's paw. He claimed he hadn't. I went back to the Owner to ask what was going on and he said my dog's foot wasn't bleeding but there is a vein running down dog's nail beds so they were applying a blood clotter. I started to protest, then the groomer said something else to the Owner in Spanish again and the Owner announced it would be $60 for the wash because my dog's fur was completely matted. I disagreed because that's simply not true. Then more Spanish. Then the Owner said she would have to be completely shaved. I protested that the dog didn't need shaving. (This dog has beautiful fur. She just won a national dog beauty contest, her second, with fur really in the same shape. It's amazing how little maintenance this dog's fur needs - just a wash now and then.). I guess the Owner didn't liked being contradicted, anyway, he totally weirded out and very, very rudely told us to leave. "I don't need customers like you!" Unbelievable. Glad though I got my dog out of there before they did 'wash' her. I caught a glimpse of the table that held the grooming brushes, etc., that they would have used on her - it was filthy disgusting. If you love your dog do not go here.

    PETCO
    Very well, even though my dogs were not very cooperative. It did take quite a few hours, which you should plan for. Their estimate of duration was not great, since they were busy. I'd have preferred to be told to come back at a specific time rather than have the animals wait in kennels.

    RANCHO-SOLANA PET SPA
    I FOUND THIS GROOMER AFTER TALKING TO MY NEIGHBORS WHO HAVE NICE LOOKING DOGS. THAT WAS PROBABLY 2 1/2 YEARS AGO. THEY MINIMIZE CAGE TIME AND THE DOG SEEMS TO BE HAPPY THERE. THEY ALWAYS ASK WHEN I PICK HER IF SHE LOOKS ALL RIGHT OR IF THERE IS ANYTHING ABOUT THE CUT WE WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE. ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND VALUE OF CUSTOMER SATISFACTION. THAT KEEPS ME COMING BACK.
