Grooming services 7/4/2010

I was amazed to read some of the negative comments. I have been taking my dogs to Gizzie's for probably at least 15 years. During that time Chuy the owner has had several locations in the same area of town. For the last 4 years, I have driven my dogs in from Kingwood to get what I consider very special services. Some of the comments by customers are simply not true - yes, you can book the day ahead if they are not fully scheduled; you don't have to wait to 5:00 pm to pick the dogs up - they call me on my cell when the dogs are ready - frequently it is as early as 2:00 pm on weekdays. I will never take my dogs anywhere else! Pros: Courtesy, friendliness, care for dogs, grooming skills Cons: None known more

Reliable Groomer 4/3/2010

I use this groomer a few times a year and never really had problems with them. I like that they are cage free and my dogs like being with other dogs. The cuts are pretty good. The only one observation, is that when I pick up my dogs they go outside and potty like they haven't gone all day. I also do not like that I have to wait until 5 pm to pick them up as that is right smack in the middle of traffic hours, therefore, I must deduct a star. Pricing wise, it is pretty comparable to other groomers and not significantly cheaper or more expensive. Pros: Cage-free, nice grooming Cons: Takes all day more

Bad experience 3/25/2010

I was impressed by the reviews of this place online and waited weeks (they do not take same or next day appointments) to get my Yorkie in for grooming. While I was surprised when they told me that my dog needed to be there between 8:00AM and 4:00PM, I had heard such good things that I let it slide. I called once in the afternoon to see if he was ready and they said that he wasn't and didn't even know his name. I had to specify that he was a 5 lb Yorkie! When I picked him up, his coat was shaggy and teddy bear head was completely crooked. I was polite, but expressed that I wasn't happy with the cut (all the while paying and tipping generously). First, I was told that they could fix it next time I came in for grooming. Upon my insistence, the gentleman went to the back to speak to who I assume was the owner and then offered to fix the cut if I brought my dog back the next day and left him between 8:00AM and 12:00PM. Like many of you, I would feel bad torturing my dog two days in a row (for a total of 12 hours) and there is no way I would leave him with people who didn't care to do a nice job or keep me happy in the first place. I definitely wouldn't return to this place and I'm really disappointed because I had hoped it would be the beginning of a long relationship! Pros: Nice facility Cons: Extremely long appt, difficult to get pup in, bad haircut more

The best for mix breeds!!! 2/3/2009

I've taken my poodle mix to Gizzie's about 4 times now and I have NEVER been disappointed. My pooch always comes back looking perfect. In my impatience on a booked day, I took her to petsmart, and when she came back to me with some kind of weird mohawk and ears cut at an angle at $20 MORE than Gizzie's charges that will NEVER happen again. I'd recommend Gizzie's to anyone and everyone!!! They do THE best work at the best price! Pros: Best haircut for my poodle mix, great prices, can socialize with other dogs Cons: None! more

They cut my dog and she got infected! 1/30/2009

i have brought my 2 dogs to gizzies before. Once before they nicked my smaller dog and it was no big deal because they tend to move around a lot while having a haircut. But recently they cut my larger dog much deeper and the poor thing has an inflammed leg and is having to take antibiotics because of the infection she has now. I think Gizzie's should have refunded at least half of my larger dog's haircut, but all they did was apologize, even though it has happened before. If you dont want your dog being nicked by a possibly infected clipper, do NOT go to this place. Pros: the dogs can run around and play with each other, they are not in cages Cons: they nicked both of my puppies and did not offer any discounts on the price more

address correction 1/12/2009

The address of Gizzie's Grooming Shop is not on W. Alabama. It is on 2056 Sul Ross. CitySearch, yes , is a way of getting information about a business, but it requires an owner to pay to be a member to change information such as an address. The owners of the shop did not put their information on this site, so why would the owner have to pay a membership fee to change any information. This website can be misleading to anyone trying to find the shop, or get the right hours of operation (7-6pm Mon-Fri, 7-2 Sat.). The address at Sul Ross, is one block from W. Alabama. Almost right behind the address from 2037 W. Alabama. PLease feel free to call 713-521-3693 to get the right address and directions. more

Best groomer in Houston 12/16/2008

I have a Maltese puppy that I take to Gizzie's. They do such an amazing job on her. She has loads of fun playing with the other dogs and comes back so nice and silky soft. Would not take her anywhere else. Pros: reasonably priced more

Best Shop in Town! 11/13/2008

I have used Gizzie's Groom shop since I moved to Houston in 1997. They do an excellent job grooming my Samoyed and mixed-breed dogs,not to mention my friend's dogs too. My dogs are always happy and exhausted when the come home. Gizzies allows dogs who are waiting to be groomed to ""roam/play"" with all the other dogs who are waiting in the grooming area. For dogs who socialize well with others, this is an added ""play time"" bonus. For those who prefer not to let their dogs roam or who have dogs that do not socialize well, Gizzies offers the proper facilities for their safety and comfort. The shop is always clean and all their staff are courteous. I highly recommend this shop! Pros: Courtesy of staff, price, location, clean facility, dogs are very happy more

Not what I expected. 11/1/2008

After reading some reviews and wanting to give Gizzie's a chance, I did. I took my 09 month old ShihTzu and when I first walked in, they did not bother to ask in detail what I wanted. They were very short and seemed as if annoyed. As a believer in giving second chances, I decided to book another appointment. I asked for a trim around the face and under his face, and it did not happen. I came from PetSmart and believe it or not, they did a much, much better job. Much more attentive and hygienic. Because my groomer at PetSmart has moved to another location, I decided to start looking again. Pros: Did not find any Cons: Not great service or grooming more

one more time 10/2/2008

i have been going to gizzies for a while but have noticed the last few times that my dog has not been bathed and i take special shampoo. for the first time ever he did not get a good cut, it was really botched and he had quite a few nicks where they got too close to the skin plus it was not the cut i requested. i hope that they are not so consumed with taking on more business than they can handle and compromising on quality. more

Best in Town!!! 5/27/2008

I have a 9 month old Maltese that I have taken to several locations in my area, and Gizzy's is by far the BEST!!! Expert groomers & staff!!! The price is right, my little Maltese is treated like a star and comes home looking like a million bucks!!! I HIGHLY reccommend Gizzy's to everyone!!! Pros: Grooming Experts Cons: N/A more

Great groomers! 5/20/2008

My dogs love Gizzie's! I have two high maintenance Shi-poos, and Gizzie's takes care of them much better than anyone else. I took them once to Petco and I will never do it again. Gizzie's does take a little longer than petsmart and Petco, but my dogs have so much fun when they are there I don't mind the longer time. I have recommended Gizzie's to several friends and everyone loves them. Pros: Value, great groomers, full service Cons: call in advance more

Great grooming at great prices! 1/10/2007

Always a great job grooming my Yorkie. I love to watch all the pups swirling around when I come to pick her up. Much better job than Petsmart and much lower cost. This is a friendly, neighborhood business that doesn't disappoint! Pros: great work and location more

Did Not Listen to Customer Requests 6/12/2006

I brought my puppy in for a bath and asked that they trim her paws, bum and pluck her ears. When I picked her up none of the above was done but for some reason they decided to trim the hair around her eyes. I was less than pleased. I am not even sure that they used the conditioner on the fur that I paid extra for. Not impressed more

toy huge poodles 5/9/2006

I have two 2!!! Standard poodles, one that is older and rather well behaved and a huge baby that is still trying to figure life out. Gizzie does a great job with both of them. They get great haircuts and the price is very reasonable. Gizzie is great and does a great job of taking good care of my babies. Love that they get to socialize with the other brothers and sisters! more

Caring Groomers 1/2/2006

I have been taking my dogs (two lhasa apsos) for over 15 years. He does a great job, and is gentle and they love him! My elder lhasa died last summer, and Gizzie knows that I feed them super healthy food, he advised me to give him table scraps (Fuji was losing weight) and let him enjoy his last days. It was such caring advice, and Fuji had a great time getting steak, chicken and cheese his last two months. My female Lhasa, Bettina, knows Gizzie also, and she perks up when she knows she is going. He has also pointed out health problems that I have not noticed (my animals are not complainers). I feel he not only does a good job, but really cares about my animals well-being. My only complaint is that they are sometimes too firm on closing time, even before their posted 6 p.m. Pros: good parking Cons: inflexible on closing, times more

Very Happy 12/1/2005

My friend recently recommended me to try out Gizzy's and I was very pleased. My dog looked better than she ever had after grooming and she wasn't caged up either. She loves to socialize so Gizzy's is the perfect place for her. We used to go to PetSmart where we paid $50 and Gizzy's was only $35! more

Absolutely Fabulous 11/17/2005

Gizzies is incredible. I own a petsitting business and a ""pup shuttle"" and we take several of our four legged clients to Chuy who owns Gizzies. They are very nice and excellent groomers. I found out about Gizzies several years ago while talking to the former wife of the mayor of houston in line at a Starbucks. Almost every time I go I see some socialite dropping off their very pampered pup! Best of all, their prices are more than competitive, they are actually lower than the hideous groomers at PetSmart! Just be sure to ask for a pick up time so they know when they need to have them ready. Gizzies is great and all my clients are chomping at the bit to go in whenever I pull up in front of their groom shop to drop them off! Pros: inexpensive, friendly more

Charged me extra... 8/7/2005

They would always tell me to pick up my pup at 1 but was never ready on time, I had to wait 45 min at least. The last time I went i decided to pick up my pup around 1:45-2:00 pm since they would always make me wait (Saturday). I get a call around 1:30 pm that I had 5 minutes to pick him up or they were going to lock him in until Monday. I told they I was on my way. When I got there they charged $20 extra for 30 minutes that i was late. Plus they kept telling me they live far and that is why they close early...I am the customer and you don't make comments like that to anyone bacause as a costumer I don't care where you live I am giving you business and that is all that should matter to them. Pros: they don't cage the dogs Cons: they don't listen to the costumer request more
