Dog Grooming reviews in Arlington Heights

    CHARIOT OF THE DOG
    We have been taking our cockapoo here since he was a puppy. Our dog doesn’t have the best temperament (doesn’t even let our kids pick him up) yet he does really well with Ro. We’ve been taking our dog there for almost 12 years. Highly recommend Chariot of the Dogs.

    Clips 'n Wiggles Dog Grooming
    This was my first visit to Clips n Wiggles. My 13 month old, 54 lb. Goldendoodle went in to get a full grooming, and not only did CeCe do a beautiful job, but she listened to all my concerns and followed my instructions perfectly. Previously my little guy went to another groomer and ended up with bad infections. He was so well cared for at Clips n Wiggles and came out a “ happy camper”! I’ve already scheduled our 2nd appt. scheduled!

    WIZARD OF PAWZ
    We had a new puppy, which we took to several other groomers. One cut the hair around the eyes, but did not do a good job. Cut the hair wrong for his breed. The other just gave him a bath. However, when we took him to Pawparazzi they di a remarkable job. He look like a mini Goldendoodle. We were very happy with the cut and would take him back there again.

    MY BEST FRIEND GROOM & BOARD
    Brought my dog in for a nail grinding however only one paw was trimmed. I was charged, & paid, full price in cash for the service not realizing the other nails were not trimmed. We discovered that my dog had a paw injury & severe nail infection two days later… My request for a refund for the $23 nail trim service from the owner, Susan, was very unpleasant & met w much resistance. She refused to acknowledge that her employees could ever make a mistake & went even further alleging that I was lied about the entire situation.…which is completely infuriating to say the least. Read on... I needed to have my dog’s nail trimmed after our appt at another groomer had been cancelled. After searching for groomers with good online reviews, I confirmed w/My Dog’s Best Friend they had time to grind my dog’s nails on a walk-in basis. (Though I offered to produce my dog’s rabies & vaccination records for the service, as we were new clients, they declined.(?)) After dropping off my dog for the nail grinding, I ran to the liquor store a few blocks down (per the tech’s suggestion) to retrieve cash from the atm to pay for the service. Then I returned to My Dog’s Best Friend when I sat down and really got a good look around while I waited. The grooming salon itself was rather filthy & dated with faded cartoon caricature posters & creepy, doll boxes (Hello Dolly?!) gathering dust on cluttered shelving and side tables that serve no purpose beyond cluttering the waiting area. In the back room, you see old, painted cages including one with a broken door - & the only thought going through my head was “I would never leave my dog here overnight.” All in all, it took a long time to “grind” my dog’s nails considering they did not even trim all of them! When it was finished, I paid $20 cash for the nail grinding & a $3 cash tip but was not offered a receipt nor did I think to ask for one. A few hrs later, my Maltese uncharacteristically nipped my when I tried to put on his harness & would not let me near his paw. Later we discovered my dog had a soft tissue injury that turned into a nail infection – as well as the lack of his nail trim! (Our Vet clipped the rest of his nails.) I phoned the owner, Susan, to request a refund for the nail grinding. It did not go well. At first, I was very upset & ready to make the hour drive there & back, w/my documents to support my claim. I reconsidered doing so as the point of requesting the refund had to do with my payment to the salon for a service that not was rendered – not the measly twenty-three $23 itself which I deduce Susan DID NOT at all comprehend from our phone call. Changing the communication method would not change her mind. Further, I did not care to waste any more money or time arguing with that type of a person. Therefore, I decided my efforts (& the small sum of $23) would be better spent immortalizing my unpleasant experience in an online review. Unfortunately, I didn't obtain a receipt for the service nor was I offered one. I do not know the tech’s name who serviced my dog nor did not pay for parking (per the techs advice to use my blinkers on Madison). What I did offer to Susan was the VET invoice showing the “Nail Trim,” the nearby liquor store ATM receipt & the groomer’s contact info whose appt fell through earlier that day to prove I was telling the truth. I forgot to bring up that I also have photos showing my dog’s uncut nails on his swollen paw prior to our ER Vet visit & my iPhone date/time stamp photo proving that I spoke w/her business shortly before I withdrawing cash from the nearby liquor store ATM. Regardless, Susan seemed to think that I concocted this whole elaborate, story to bleed her dry of $23 after I refused her offer to bring my dog back for the completion of the nail trim. I declined as our Vet had already trimmed his nails and I would not trust that salon with my dog again. Can you blame me? Her exact & ignorant response was: “Anyone could get an ATM receipt from a liquor store.” Obviously, I did not react well to a comment which implied that I was lying. I highly doubt any customer in my shoes would have appreciated that rude & inconsiderate comment. Did Susan ever consider if I was trying to “con” her, don’t you think I would be asking for more than $23?! After that point, Susan was unable to professionally communicate anything more of value because all that fell out of her mouth was a repetitive “I’ve heard you talk, now you listen to me.” I kept waiting for her to say something productive that I could respond to however it appears that Susan is a disbeliever that her employees are human and might actually make mistakes sometimes. Unfortunately, the conversation with this owner was as fruitless & non-productive as expecting the décor of the store to advance into this generation.

    FROM HEAD TO TAIL INC
    Took almost 4 hours, groomer was an owner named Rich. Rude and unprofessional on phone, took more than an hour longer than estimate and we were asked to come back twice for him to complete job. Dog trim is choppy to scalped and 2 dogs nails bloody. Many similar reviews on other boards. Do not hire!

    Doggy Has It
    We have a sweet but nervous labradoodle. Anja has groomed him several times and has always done a great job. She only takes one dog at a time, so there are no dogs sitting around in cages. She does a great job, takes her time and is exceedingly nice to our dog. In fact, he loves going there and greets here enthusiastically when we walk in the door. Caring, careful and wonderful.

    Amy and Aimee Care for Cats
    Amy is fantastic with cats! She and her business partner, Aimee, are both vet techs with years of experience in animal hospitals. My cat loves her and willingly takes the pills that she won't take from anyone else.

    SHAG BARK PET RETREAT & SPA
    We’ve been going to Shagbark for years, and we’ve had nothing but positive experiences, with boarding, grooming, daycare, and training. We recently started scent work classes with our golden retriever, Jack, and he LOVES it! The instructor, Cathi, provides variety each week, and makes the class really fun for the dogs as well as the handlers. I highly recommend scent work if you’re looking for something different and challenging to do with your canine family member.
