I've only visited this location 1 time because the groomer informed me he had a hard time getting them into the bathtub but eventually he got the job done but never told me how. When walking my pup home it appeared as if she was limping a little but I paid it no mind but that evening it swelled up with fluid soft to the touch. After doing some searching online I learned it was nothing major, a hematoma, and as long as it was not painful it should go away on it own. That was January 16 and now it is August 21 it is still there. This past week the Vet drained some of the fluid off of it and informed me, again, it should go away on it own. It's not that great to look at but as long as my baby can still plan and have fun, I am going to wait it out before I consider having it surgically removed. I am out $30 and counting for this unfortunate turn of events but again great service for smaller breeds or a less stubborn dog when it comes to bath time.

My baby Smokey and I called after the A/C broke to hopefully relieve him of some of the extreme heat in our house. In the beginning they had no appointments but I asked if I could call back and see if anyone canceled and the lady said that was fine. BUT, I got a call back from them saying they moved some things around and got Smokey an appointment. I was so grateful that they went out of their way and did such an amazing job! Leaving the Groomer's he was so happy he smiled the entire way home. Thank you guys so much for saving my baby.
Smokey had a body full of hair, they faded it just how we like it and needless to say he came out as a sexy beast.

I found this place on YELP a few months ago upon relocating to Atlanta and was able to get an appointment within a day. I love the service, the quality of the cut they give my dog and the value is top notch. It's been 5 months, and I've found the place that'll have my business for as long as they around. Thank you such great service!

My 2 miniture schnauzers, Tuffy & Louie look great and the staff was very friendly! I love the fact she donates to SLR (Schnauzer Love Rescue) where I adopted my to boys. I highly recommend giving Best In Show a try!!

Hilde and her staff are excellent. We have a standard schnauzer, Schatzi, and she always looks great after a grooming here. We have her stripped and they do,an excellent job. The staff here is very knowledgable of how breeds should be groomed. We will never take our dog anywhere else as long as we live in the Atlanta area and we live 45 minutes from their office.

Hilde grooms our miniature schnauzer for the show ring! She has hand stripped her twice to make sure her coat is as coarse as it needs to be to show. Hilde is a perfectionist when it comes to grooming and our puppy is always the most beautiful dog in the ring!

I just picked up my 4yr old Bichon Frise (Lily Rose) and I could not be more delighted. Julie, Hilde's awesome assistant, was very kind and listened to exactly how I wanted Lily to be cut. Even though Lily is a smaller Bichon (9.0 lbs), I still like for her to have the traditional Bichon cut, sized down to fit her frame. My issues with other groomers has been everything from looking like a poodle to resembling a white baby seal and yes I cried over the latter look! Axcium Pet Grooming knows how to execute cuts specific to the breed. I swear Lily is walking around like she is just loving that a groomer finally made her look the way she is suppose too. Don't hesitant taking your fur baby to Axcium. The only thing your baby will lose is a bad haircut!! Pricing is very fair and online appointment setting and email reminder was wonderful!

After constantly being disappointed with groomers over the past year, I found Hilde at Axcium Pet Grooming through Kudzu & am very happy! My dogs loved her and I loved her work. Her cuts are clean, her communication is clear, and Hilde's prices are very reasonable! I recommend trying Hilde out to anyone looking for a great groomer.

Axcium is unbelievable and reasonable for the work they do. What a fabulous job, great friendly staff, and enormous relief from those other well known establishments! I drove from Henry County with two 8 month old over-hairy matted shihtzu's (just think of all the other groomers I passed on the way). I could not believe the results of my little handsome boys. Not one shaving, and I can tell you they were matted pretty bad - thanks to a not so great vacation sitter. I will continue to drive the extra miles for this excellent service!

Hilde has been my 2 year old standard schnauzer's(Laila) groomer since she was a pup. Laila is handstripped and Hilde is always professional,patient and consistently offers excellent grooming/behavioral advice. Everyday Laila is complimented on her coat by strangers and neighbors and I'm typically asked (even after her hair has grown out two months), "Did you just get her groomed, she looks wonderful!!"Hands down Hilde is absolutely the BEST the SouthEast has to offer as she has proven time and again that she is well trained and masterfully skilled in grooming/showing dogs.

Just left from having Missy groomed and I was just blown away with the quality of work... Great cut and she smelled great... They even took the time to put bows in her hair... I WILL BE GOING BACK IN 2 MONTHS...

I am so happy I found Hilde. I finally found someone who can make my Soft Coated Wheaten look like she is supposed to look. I really didn't like how other groomers made her look. thank you Hilde(:

We moved to Atlanta in Oct, 09 and we are thrilled to have found Hilde to strip our Wire Fox Terrier. She has done flawless work EVERY time we have taken him in and her rate is very reasonable for hand stripping. We have the most handsome dog in Midtown and we have Hilde to thank!
