Dog Grooming reviews in Charlottesville

    She loves it! All I have to do is say "daycare?" and she's at the front door waiting for her leash. I know she has a good time and has several favorite playmates there. It's been really good for her. Before she was a little shy and unsure of other dogs but now she can't wait to play. She comes home happily tired and falls out for a good nap. She's a big dog and needs a lot of exercise and her time at Creatures gives her a good workout.

    My dog is HUGE and this place is just not set up for such a animal. He came home peeing on the floor because he was obviously allowed to pee on the kennel floor, even though I paid a lot extra for play time and walks to avoid this. I am not sure that is the kennel's fault though. Also, the indoor sleeping area and bed is not of sufficient size and the door way to the "outdoor" part of the kennel, which is really indoors, is no where near the size he needed (he had to crouch). I strongly recommend people ask to SEE where their animal will exactly be staying so they know what they are getting.

    When I got back from my vacation Rupert was dropped back off at my house. While I was gone they had trained him to sit and wait until he was told it was ok to go. I really appreciate all of the effort that they put into their dog care. The camp itself is truly the best of its kind, and everyone who works there treats the dogs like their own. Thank you happy tails for taking care of my puppy!

    I drop my dogs off every month or so for a trip, they bounce in, greet Louise or Katie with kisses, and prance back to their runs.  I always have them bathed at Creatures, because they love their baths there and don't really like any bath I provide.  I've even had one dog, super sweet lab, who couldn't have his nails clipped anywhere else in town.  My vet even said they would have to sedate him to do his nails.  Somehow Katie made is a relaxing experience for the old boy, and he'd hold out his paws for her like he was getting a massage.  These women are dog whisperers.

    When I get there and the dogs see where they are going, they almost pull the leash out of my hands in their hurry to get in. This is NOT typical behavior for them, so I know the experience they have there is good. And when I pick them up, they are glad to see me, but they are also calm, not stressed out and nutty. When I boarded them at another place, they all came home with diarrhea from distress. So no place but Creatures for me and them

    Very professional business. What a breeze. Easy drop-off parking. Clean setup. I don���t want to say too much about how they differ from other salons ��� that would be giving away their business model. (Example: I am allergic to perfume. I forgot to include that information when giving them service instructions at check-in. I really appreciated the groomer calling to ask if I did NOT want perfume shampoo as I had with my pervious dog.) Bottom-line: My dogs were nervous going in the door and left lovely and happy AND I am not sneezing!

    It went very well.  I feel completely comfortable with leaving my pet in their care.  Their business is quite large and cares for way more dogs than cats but they have clean, decent sized cublcles and pets seem to be very well tended.  The staff is always friendly, helpful, and professional and the owner is on the premises every time I am there.  They are a great resource and I plan to continue patronizing their business when necessary.

    My five-year-old cat has been having his claws trimmed since he was a kitten with no problems whatsoever. I took him to Creatures Great and Small because it is closer to my house than my other groomer and it had received good reviews. It was terrible. I heard hissing and growling as the groomer was working on my cat and I went to the door to investigate. I volunteered to hold the cat while she worked but was not allowed. The ruckus was attended by another groomer who brought the cat out in the office area to finish the clipping. I noticed that my cat was bleeding. All of this with only one paw done. Fortunately, they treated the bleeding claw and haphazardly tried to finish the job. We got out of there PDQ and weren't charged for the "service." The dirty office and the stench should have tipped me off from the beginning.

    Owner was very sweet -- was able to get us in the next day. While operated out of an older building, I would not hesitate to go there again -- in fact, I will.
    They did an incredible job with my long-hair, matted, very dirty (due to previous illness) cat. When I called to make the appointment, I was sure they were going to have to clip him. That wasn't ideal, but this was going to be a big job.
    So, it was a fantastic surprise to see my big boy, who popped his head out of his carrier to get his chin scratched by the owner, still had his beautiful orange fur!
    The staff clearly care deeply for their animal clients. Think about how gentle and PATIENT you have to be to not only comb out deep matts on the belly, legs and tail of a cat, but then bathe them after!
    Thank you ladies, so much! Priam is down-right handsome now!

    Katie and her staff are always wonderful with our animals. Katie loves animals, and that comes through in her interactions with our dogs. They charge a fair price and can do many types of grooming - from the "low-maintenance family dog" type of grooming to more elaborate show-dog grooming (and in fact, Katie has personal dog show experience). They also board dogs, and have kept our two dogs together over weekends rather than caging them separately from one another in order to try to reduce their anxieties while we were gone. I don't know if they still do, but they used to also do grooming for the SPCA animals to keep them healthy and help them look their best for adoption, which is a wonderful thing. We love Creatures Great and Small!
