I was hesitant to take my two small Yorkies to a chain store for grooming because they charge about the same (or a little more actually) than my regular groomer and I was afraid they'd be mediocre, but I was desperate and if you don't make an appt. far in advance with most groomers, it can be quite awhile before they can get you in.
I got an appt on a Sunday which was only a couple of days away.
I am VERY VERY picky when I come to how I want my dogs to be groomed and what I want them to look like. The staff there was extremely accomodating, even though they probably don't usually do such extreme body cuts on Yorkies.
Not only did they do a STELLAR job on the cuts (I took pictures for them as a guide), they did the BEST job of clipping their nails that I've EVER had done (and my dogs are 5 and 6 yrs old).
I have absolutely NO qualms about taking them here from now on. The only thing that I can say that might be a negative for some people is that the dogs do have to be there for between 3-4 hours (it was 4 hours for me), but I don't mind that b/c it gave me time to go home and shampoo my carpets without the dogs being right behind me.
Also, they sort of try to sell you more services (like add-ons; conditioner, special shampoo, etc) that all cost more, but they aren't pushy about it.
Overall, I found the groomers to be very knowledgeable and compassionate.
