Unhappy customer wrote: I had the same experience. I couldn't get my dog in at the usual place so I tried this place. She came back totally shaved down. Now here's my question:When a dog is dropped off to be groomed, shouldn't a professional, trained groomer be able to take a look at the dog and determine there's a chance it may have to be shaved? And if so, don't you think the right thing to do is TELL THE OWNERB E F O R Eyou do it so they at least have the option of walking out the door with the dog or telling the groomer over the phone, "never mind, I'll come pick my dog up"?My dog walked around in November with no hair looking like a damned otter because of that place.For the record, I've had nothing but good experiences at The Clip and they have never shaved my dog down, even tho a couple of times I have taken her in there looking worse than she did the time All Paws shaved her down.

We understood that they were going to have to cut her shorter than I wanted. When she was picked her up she was shaved down to the skin!!! They didn't even call me to ask if it would be ok. We intended to show her in a Paul Mitchell dog show. Well not any more! Good thing it is warm out because she is freezing from being naked! I have heard about the dog that just went through major surgery this week for a broken leg and dislocated hip after being groomed there! I can't complain about the poor haircut after hearing that but am concerned of what could have happeded to my puppy while she was there. I hope the other dog recovers quickly and ends up with a full recovery!
