they lost my sisters dog in below 0 weather‎ - ‎ - 2009-12-10
My sister took her little dog in 12/10/09 to them to be groomed and they let him run loose and right out the door it's -3* out with a wind chill factor of below -15 we found him hours later with possible frost bite on a neighbors door step.
They made very little attempt to help find him. This is unacceptable. No exceptions. It doesn't matter what, they are expected to keep the dog safe if not anything else. I would never take any pet I cared for to them!!!!!!!!

correction laurak you've been terribly misinformed! Your sisters dog was busy attacking the groomer when an unsuspecting customer opened the door. the dog then went to attack the customers dog and customer... saw its chance, and bolted. The ensuing dog hunt took was 2 hours long in"the only true part of your review" -15 wind chills. Kim and 2 other customers and myself were involved. If you call a lady crying for 2 solid hours in tennis shoes dressed in scrubs only searching for your dog "a very little attempt" you are an idiot! When the dog was found, the business was reopened and pawsitively grooming paid for your dog to be seen by the vet. Fortunately the dog is fine. Unfortunately the dogs groomer is not. You cannot find a person who cares more about every single pet that comes through her door. Obviosly you dont know the whole story, the pet was someone elses, and you definetly do not know how much this lady cares about animals.

It happened the dog got loose on the coldest day of the year. Lets concider the circumstances. This lady came in bashing every groomer she has used making her dog ever more nervous she got there early before I was there I was not ready yet. The dog was nervous and the more she talked. He seemed to fine til I tried to put him in kennel he growled showing his teeth.(no I took the high road did not tell the owners about the growling at me) So instead of putting the dog in the kennel and making him more upset I set him on the ground for 30 sec to put on my grooming smock. I heard the door turned around and my second client was 25 min early! I tried to get to the door too late she tried to stop him but the dog tried biting my second client. She stayed and we tried to catch him, he only bit at us then he dashed away in yes freezing cold. I never groomed this dog before, I was just trying to make him feel comfortable in my shop and it back fired. But something is to be said why is this dog so nervous he is not fixed instead this dog they breed and is unstable. apparently non of the groomers prior to me where good enough none ever will be. There is something to be said about people breeding dogs with good temperments these people are not. Don't walk into a groomers shop and tell them how horrable all the other groomers are not fair. Lying in their lil complaint I spent 2 hours in thin pants looking for a little dog who freaked out for NO REASON! I did not make him bite I did not have him there more than 5min with out the mom there. In a perfect world none of this would happen. This ranting about me not even half clear it sounds like I opened the door and let him out. The other client missed her app to help me look for him and almost was bit 2 times. He would not go to anyone. People need to socialize their dogs. I payed for the dog who was fine, to see the vet. I cryed for over an hour when it was over. You can say what you like maybe if you run into my clients I have had for 7 years they will tell you the many good things I have done for thier pets. My biggest problem is sometimes I try too much.
