This place is great!
I came here super last minute. I had an appointment at Pet Resort @ RTP, but due to miscommunications (=O), I had to find a groomers nearby to bring my little poopster. Everywhere was booked, but Dog Stylist was kind enough to open up a spot to me. They were booked too, and the woman on the phone had to ask one of her partners.
It is a old looking house in Durham, and you can tell they’ve been there forever. The only reason I’m taking off one star is the ambiance. It is very low-key. They have some cages for cats in the front, where the owner takes in and advertises them for adoption. In the same room, is the counter where they sell simple dog grooming stuff (no brand names here). In the other room, is filled with good sized crates where your pup will be staying.
How can you miss the two black standard poodles walking around the house. They belong to the owner, and are so calm and perfectly groomed. I wanted to stay there longer just to play with those poodles.
I got the bath and tidy because my bichon/shihtzu had bits of mats on his feet and ears. It was a no fuss drop-off, and the owner asked me a few questions in terms of what he likes or doesnt like and what i wanted to get done.
At 5:30, I picked him up and he looked like another man! He was super fluffy, happy and ALL of his mats were gone! I don’t know how they did it, or how they made him to stand still but they did. Also, they DONT sedate the dogs like some other groomers.
The total was only $34, where I was used to paying $80 for something like this. The prices are good, you can tell that the people there really love animals and my dog came out of there fabulous and happy.
Mochi says “woof woof woof woof” – 4 stars!
