Bailey and I have just had a HORRIBLE experience at a Petsmart groomer and am never going back there again. First off... I don't know what they were thinking cutting his fur the way they did... he looked so funny afterwards but more troubling is the way he's been shaking and acting so skittish all the time since Monday!!!
I am soo angry at them and called to complain but doubt it will do any good!He's been always checking his butt cause I think the way they buzzed him, they irritated that area. But it brakes my heart how he is shaking all the time... even when he's sitting by my feet when I am getting ready for work in the morning... I bend down to pet him and notice he is shaking while looking up at me.He's never done that before!!! I keep trying to comfort him and say its ok but don't know what else to do.
You would think with that glass window that they would be fine BUT who knows what goes on in the back where they get washed and such!!! How could anyone hurt these defenseless little angels!?![/B]
We usually go to the Petsmart on the east side of town but couldn't get an appointment last weekend so we tried the one on the west side... NEVER going there again!!!i hope bailey gets better <3[/B]
werid... um... maybe its cause its a new petsmart but the people at petsmart grooming are real nice.
the one i go too seem very nice. and i always request for this one young girl name britteny she does such a beautiful job and she is always honest with me. but then again~ before donbi goes in, im always like DO NOT CUT ANY HAIR ON TOP I AM TRYING TO GROW IT OUT... im sure they are all like darn this asian lady is psycho! but its okay i make sure she fully understands what i want and how i want donbi's haircut. I notice'd donbi does shake but man when im sitting there watching her cut donbi and always saying awww what a beautiful girl til the end, i think the only reason why she shakes is because she hates being in a new enviroment. (we only went 2 times now). usually i would never take donbi to petsmart only because of the horrible stories i have heard from friends (trust me the one in springfield virginia im not fond of). but this girl listens to me so GOOD! i am so happy I tell her to use a certain shampoo she doesnt mind. I tell her DONT CUT NOTHING ON TOP she doesnt even cut the nose the bangs nothing... I tell her jus a trim she gives her a trim i tell her jus a little off the butt she does it. I think Im' in love! honestly I love her so much I tip her 20 bucks everytime we go.Im so in love with my groomer she rocks! and I honestly think its not the grooming salon places like petco and petsmart or any other places that we should judge i think its the groomer. I used to take donbi to just fur pets. man they charged me a bundle like 75 bucks and i heard from so many people its the best place in my area but!!!! I have to put my feet down. I get lucky with one groomer there whos excellent. but the rest are ALL BAD! *thumbs DOWN* one cut the side of donbi's eyes, other times its a cut on her leg, and trust me they speak better english then me I TELL THEM NOOOOO CUT on the face or top... but what they do? they give her bangsand trim her.
also, i just like to say... I LOVE MY GROOMER if anyone is near gainesville virginia let me know i tell you the info.
ps sorry if i dont make any sense in my post.
i am hungry and stuck at work[/B]
Brit, I am with you and Andrea/Nemo's Mom on this. PETA has a lot of issues and has not proven itself to be a reliable unbiased source of information on any number of occasions in the past.I would not trust a word PETA writes.[/B]
