Ms. Shelby (Business Owner) has been grooming and caring for my Cocker Spaniels since she was a teenager working for her Mom (the original Michelle), over two decades ago. She does beautiful work, is HONEST, professional, and most important to me, she truly loves animals and cares for every pet in her custody as if it were her own. The greatest proof of this is how happy and excited my pets are to enter her shop. The staff all know their names, and they are welcomed like family. I have never been displeased with the grooming done on my pet, but I know that if I were, Ms. Shelby would do everything reasonable to make amends. The shop is not fancy, but it is very clean, and has been so every time I am there. Great, great business, great staff, and best prices in town!

I took my dog to Michele's All Breed after reading reviews online. I scheduled an appointment and when I got there, no one was there. After a 30 minutes wait, the team arrived. It was my first time there, and the first thing I noticed when i stepped inside was that the salon smelled like cigarettes. Within 5 minutes I tasted the nicotine in my mouth, and started to feel sick. I asked if they smoke in the salon? They said "no" that one of the ladies that work in the salon had just finished smoking, that's why I smelled the cigarette smell. The place was reeking with the smell of cigarettes. It was very unpleasant, especially for someone who doesn't smoke. However, 5 hours later when I went to pick up my dog, he was not ready. I had called in advance and was told that he was ready to be picked up. That was not a problem, but the place was still reeking with the cigarette smell, so I waited outside. They did an EXCELLENT job grooming my dog. The best he has ever looked. I was very pleased with their work. However, as soon as my dog got outside of the salon, he vomited. For the next 7 days, he was very sick, and had to be taken to the vet. I don't know if being in a smoky environment affects dogs, like it would human beings, but I'm still perplexed as to why my puppy was so sick. Would I have Michele's All Breed groom my puppy again? Yes. Would I go back under those conditions? Absolutely NOT.

Very affordable and fast. Nice staff. The place is not super shiny or polished so know that going in. I got my dog's teeth brushed and nails trimmed for under $10. In these times, who needs a posh snooty salon that passes their overhead on to you.

Was referred to Michele by a neighbor, I have a little doggy who does not like his nails clipped at all. Let's just say when we try to do it, the ordeal lasts 30+ minutes, we are tired, he is tired, just stressful all the way around. So I call Michele's they tell me to bring him by anytime (they usually require an appointment so call first to save yourself a trip.) I take him in, they hold him and get his nails trimmed in less than 5 minutes. SOLD! I will never go through the stress of this again. Plus they charged $5, WOW! SOLD again! Now this is just a very simple establishment, so all of you who are used to the finer places in the ATL area (and you are going to pay for it too) don't bother coming here, or do, and save your $$$, have your dogs love this place and it is close to home. Again, this is another Mableton establishment, go support them so our area of town will thrive!!!

I moved to Atlanta 2 years ago and always used PetSmart back in Orlando so when I moved here I did the same. The first time I took my Katie to the groomer there she fought me not to go in. I soon learned why, they never did a good job. I then looked for a local groomer close to my house and found Michele's. The first time I went to her location I was a little skeptical as the strip center looked a little run down. That went a way the minute I entered and saw all the happy animals and met the staff. They are so nice and love every dog that walks through the door. The charge a more than fair price for the tremendous job they do. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a groomer for their loved animals. I am just sorry it took me so long to write a review for them!
