These people don't listen. I have a long haired dachshund with a heavy undercoat. I specifically told them I wanted the undercoat thinned out, not shaved down. They said they understood, but to my horror they shaved him down completely with electric clippers all over. It has taken three years and hours of clips and stripping by hand to regain any semblance of a normal coat. Needless to say, I never went back. This shop obviously has a following, but I could not refer anyone there. They ruined my dog's beautiful coat. He is the multicolored "formerly" long-haired dog in the foreground of the picture, which was taken on the day they shaved him down.

This boutique dog salon is the best there is! I have been taking my beloved Dudley there since he was a puppy. Debbie and Karen are the most loving dog people I have every encountered. They speak "doggie language" better than most of us speak English. These ladies have a steller reputation and my wirehair fox terrrier always gets compliments everywhere we go. This is a salon... not a dog groomer... this is a salon that the ladies have close to 100% repeat business and most customers bring there dogs on a consistent basis and Debbie and Karen have relationships with theor furry clents. They walk my dog and make sure he has plenty of water and Dudley had much rather hang out with them for the day than go to doggie daycare. He knows exactly where they are located as he wines and crys everytime we go down Cheshire Bridge and when it is time for his salon appointment he goes crazy when I tell him we are going to the groomer. He gets so exacited the minute we pull in that he pulls me to the door and gives them both kisses and forgets I am even alive. Dudley will not anyone else give him a bath or cut his hair and they do not use nooses around the dogs neck or anything to restrain them as you wll see in other breeders and they do everything right out front where you can see them working on dogs.

Debbie and Karen performed a miracle with my very sensitive pooch. They earned his trust with love, infinite patience and compassion. Seeing them is now one of his (and my) favorite activities. It was simply amazing! The cuts/grooming receives is top-notch - I get endless compliments on how good he looks. They are also available to provide training services which was a life-saver for me when I picked up a stray young and wild pit bull. They provided expert guidance and training which tamed the wild pup so he could be a loving family member in his new home. I highly recommend Debbie and Karen. You get more than groomers with them. You gain new family members.

Debbie and Karen are hands down the best groomers ever! They treat my fur-baby like he's one of their own. He loves going there and they always make him look and smell so good! I've been taking my shih-tzu there every since I've had him, almost two years now. I've never been disappointed with the service. I don't think I've ever been to a grooming salon where pets receive so much love and attention, and are treated like royalty!

We have taken our dogs to debbie and Karen for several years and have always had great results. They are extremely conscientious and very loving to the dogs and their owners alike.

I have taken my dog to two other places in the city and That Marvelous Dog was far and away better. They clearly love animals, are friendly to deal with, and do a great job.
