I was reading a thread on Petsmart grooming yesterday. There were a lot of mixed reviews. Does it really depend on location? I went to the one in my area (Fairfax, VA) and on the surface it looked really nice and the groomers seem friendly. However, reading some of your reviews I might look at other private groomers.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has used the Petsmart PetHotel for their furry friends? I was just looking for positive and negative thoughts on this subject.
It all depends on the location. Go to photobucket, and enter username Heather Maran, and look at the Petco Sux tab...you'll see why Merphy will never be back to a Petco or Petsmart for grooming. He didn't walk or eat for several days after I took him last time, and this was in January, he was cut so short that he was literally shivering. But, luckily, his hair grew fast and now he looks like a cotton ball.
But, some people swear by their groomers at these places. It just depends on where you go.
Hey I live near Fairfax (sometimes, haha I'm a student) I have never taken my dog to there so I'm no help. There are other threads on here where members swear by them and others that hate them I would snoop and go there and try to see the end result
First of all, I either have a dog sitter which is usually one of the techs that works for my vet take care of the dogs or I have hired a college student to become a dog sitter. I would prefer them being in their own house but if that is not an option I board them at my vet's as she has a pet motel. Its not just a cage then and I can put 3 or more together. The other is the only thing I use petsmart for is purchasing food etc.
