Keep Drivin' 11/6/2010

Petropolitan may have been great in 2009, but for Oct 2010 they're terrible. I took in a Yorkie for a standard clip, and I don't think they even washed her bc she still had eye gobbers. It was right at closing when I picked up, and I did't make her stay to get fixed. Her teddy bear face wasn't nearly even, and her feet were pretty bad too. The place is very loud also. 2 - 3 pens in the front had about 7 dogs each that were going crazy everytime someone came in - yes, I know dogs bark, but a different area would be better than keeping all the dogs in the store front w/the merchandise. For the same price, $50ish, you'd be better off going to any of the places along Oak Lawn for a better cut & environment. more

Good for CATS too! 6/20/2009

It's really hard to find a place that grooms cats and is willing to handle the sedation. Petropolitan did a fabulous job with the lion cut, and my cat came back feeling and looking great. I am so grateful for the service they provide. more

LOVE IT! 6/10/2009

I have been taking my dog to the Petropolitan for the last 2 years. I couldn't be more pleased with the love and attention they give to my dog. The staff makes an effort to get to know you and your dog. The dogs are seperated by size and temperment and are walked throughout the day. The Petropolitan has a fun Halloween party for dogs and owners that I look forward to every year. This is top quality pet care. Fabulous! Pros: Everything! more

Best Dog Grooming in Dallas 3/6/2009

Thank goodness, I found Petropolitan!!! What an enlightening experience for me and my Newfoundland, Blanche. They are absolute professionals and love the animals that they care for. Blanche is 8 years old and in all her years of grooming has never looked as wonderful as she did when I picked her up from Petropolitan. She looked and had to feel like a show dog with her soft, perfectly coifed hair and she smelled lik a million dollars. Then it came time to pay, and I was astounded at the reasonable rates they charge. Thanks a bunch!!!! Don't forget to tip your groomer; that is a really exhausting job they do to make our kids look great!!! Pros: Everything!! Cons: Nothing!! more

Annebelle has never been so happy 3/3/2009

I recently moved to Dallas and had several suggestions for daycare and grooming for my little Annebelle. Annebeele has never had fun at the groomer, she's always came back stressed and has never been in daycare. A neighbor told me about the Petropolitan and I went to check them out. Annebelle has only been groomed once since moving here, and it was time for her to get pretty again. I took Annebelle with me, not expecting to leave her anywhere that day. The moment I walked in I realize that there was something different about this place. It was loud, but not a bad loud. All the dogs where playing and having good time. I talked with Sara and felt completely sure that Anneblle would be taken care of. I was asked what time I wanted to pick her up and told them I wanted her as soon as I could since this was a new place. They called me about 3 hours later and told me Annebelle was ready. When I got there, Annebelle looked absolutely wonderful!! NEVER LOOKED BETTER!!! She was happy and played with everyone on her way out to see me. I've never seen her warm up to other people so quickly. Annebelle feel asleep in my lap on the way home. She's been going back to daycare now for over a week and has a wonderful time each day she's there. We are so happy to find the Petropolitan and will tell all Annebelle's friends they need to go there too. Pros: My Annebelle is happy there Cons: not one more

Best Ever! 2/19/2009

I was hesitant to try a play care setting for my newly socialized pitbull mix when she needed grooming - but from now on, I'll never take her anywhere else but Petropolitian. On a friends recommendation (thanks Sandra & Stella), I took Ruby in and explained her level of socialization and personality - not only did they not scoff at her breed type (very rare these days!!!), they listened and paid attention to Ruby's comfort level before assigning her to a play group. I am by no means a dog expert, but I have invested a lot of time training and sociaizing my dog - which makes it very easy to reconize other 'dog people'. They know dogs, they listen to your concerns and needs & do a fabulous job grooming. When I came to pick Ruby up, she was happy, calm, and as soft as cotton! That afternoon, in the elevator, a neighbor who had never pet Ruby before, commented on how well behaved she was, reached down to pet her & raved about how soft and shiny her coat was! It usually takes a while for strangers to warm up to my Ruby Roo, so the best compliment I can extend actually came from a relative stranger! Overall great experience! Pros: Great atmosphere, excellent customer service Cons: limited parking more

They really care about your dog! 12/30/2008

I take my dog Annie here from time to time when I have to go out of town, or she needs to be groomed, and she loves it! All of the employees at the Petropolitan know Annie by name when I call to check up on her, and Annie is actually excited to see them when I bring her in. (Usually, she's less than thrilled about me leaving her at a boarding place or a doggy daycare.) Even though the Petropolitan is a very nice facility and she is given constant care, it's very affordable! Pros: Everything Cons: Nothing more

I want to get pampered at Petropolitan too! :) 7/21/2008

ZuZu our golden retriever/ collie/ hodge podge SPCA rescue baby LOVES this place! She gets to hang with dogs her size all morning awaiting her pampering that comes in the afternoons - she goes for the lion cut, a demure, yet distinctive pink bow, and no nail polish - thank you very much. Pros: Staff attitude, vibe Cons: It's loud, but hey - that means the babies are happy! more

The Best Around 5/29/2008

I have been taking Princess, my Bichon Frise to The Petropolitan for grooming since they opened. They are fantastic! I have taken Princess to other groomers in the past who insisted they could do a ""Bichon cut"", but she never came home looking like one. I also disliked that they kept the animals crated the entire time. I never crate her, so it was very unsettling for both of us. She was always very nervous and timid when I picked her up. I have never had that problem with The Petropolitan. They do an amazing job. My little Princess comes home looking absolutely fantastic and happy. I was so happy the first time I picked her up that I ran home to take pictures. I was truly amazed. Finally, she looked like Bichon Frise! The prices for their services can't be beat, and daycare is free with grooming. They also have a great selection of products for sale. I always leave with a bag full of goodies. The entire staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. I can't say enough nice things about them. They are truly great people who care for their customers (2 and 4 legged) and it shows. I trust them fully. In my opinion, there is no better place for you and your pet. Pros: Everything! Great Staff, Great Grooming, Great facility, Great Day Care, Great Products! more

Best Doggie Daycare in Dallas 5/13/2008

BEST doggie daycare in Dallas!!! My dog loves to go to Petropolitan! I have a large, sloppy, English Bulldog and he smells extremely fresh and clean for more than a week after he gets a bath there. I don't know what products they use on the dogs, but they are fabulous! The people are very friendly and helpful and I would highly reccommend this business!!! Pros: Everything Cons: Nothing more

Beautiful Doggy Spa!!! 3/14/2008

I love Petropolitan! My Shih Tzu, Jordan, has so much fun when I drop him off to be groomed....everyone is so friendly! When I pick Jordan up...he is groomed to perfection! The spa is beautiful and very animal friendly. I would recommend Petropolitan to anyone who has a four legged friend! They have my business for life and any future ""babies"" that I plan on having! more

My Dog and I LOVE the Fun and Fabulous Petropolitan 2/29/2008

Chris and everyone who works at the Petropolitan clearly love what they do and care about their 2- and 4-legged clientele. I am so happy to finally have found a place in Dallas where I have 100% confidence that my ""canine child"" will be given the best in care and grooming. Until I found the Petropolitan, I felt guilty taking my dog to our former groomer because I could sense my little guy's anxiety -- now I see him ""smile"" when we get to the Petropolitan and it makes me feel so great to know that he actually enjoys being there. The Petropolitan is the best! Pros: Fun, fabulous, friendly!! more

My Little Man was in Heaven!!! 1/31/2008

I absolutley LOVED the way they groomed my Bischon, Bodie!! I have had him for over 5 years and they are the ONLY groomer who knows how to do the ""teddy bear"" groom. His nails were cut perfectly and I must say he was quite the happy little man when I picked him up. They were so friendly and took me on a tour of their facility. They have the daycare broken up very well, big dogs in one area & little in another. I even laughed knowing they have a ""time out"" cage. Thank you a million times over for your great service!! I would recommend you to any of my friends & have!!!! Pros: Friendly enviroment, great grooming and fab day care area Cons: parking more

Best place to take your doggie companion for grooming and doggie daycare in Dallas! 5/8/2007

The Petropolitan is by far the best place to take your doggie companion for grooming and doggie daycare in Dallas! My first visit I came in to take a tour and ask some questions. Right away I felt comfortable, knowing that this is a place I can trust to take good care of my doggie. I scheduled an appointment for two days later to bring my Gabriel baby in for grooming. I took him in and dropped him off with Chris, who made me feel at ease about the whole experience, reassuring me that he will be safe and very well taken care of. Everything about the Petropolitan is so stress free....for you and your doggie! The groomer did a fabulous job on Gabe.....and they gave him his medicine for the day. When I came to pick Gabe up he was happy...not so stressed out like all the times I have picked him up from other groomers before. He got to spend the day in a fun place with people I trust to take care of him! What more could you ask for? Pros: Safe environment for your dog for grooming and daycare, convenient location, great prices! Cons: NONE AT ALL! more

My Bichon's Paradise!! 2/28/2007

Great Atmosphere, I felt completely at ease with leaving my Bichon, Krash with the staff. They were so loving and playful with him from the time we walked in the door. I was in for a groom, when I picked him up I was amazed! Since he is a straight hair Bichon I was always told in the past his hair couldn't ""puff"" like the typical breed, but Petropolitan was not only able to Puff but the Blew the house down. He looks 100% like a Bichon should. When I picked him up it was great not to see him in a cage screaming... he was in a huge play area with all the other dogs having a great time. The price was unbeatable, you get what you pay for and a little more!! I will be going back for daycare and grooming and shopping!! Huge Referral and I promise your pooch will love you even more!! Pros: Atmosphere, Staff, Socialization, No Cages!, Hair Grooming, EVERYTHING ELSE A POOCH WOULD ASK FOR! Cons: Having to Leave, My dog wanted to stay longer but I pulled him out the door! more

Tail Waggin Great 1/26/2007

Found by accident and so glad I did. I walked in the door with my Collie and found a wonderful loving environment. The love for animals that the staff shows is incredible. I was asked if I would like to meet the groomer and take a tour of the shop before I made an appointment to make sure I was comfortable was a first for me. No other grooming shop as ever ask me that. Upon picking up my dog I was delighted, instead of scared and shaking she was tail waggin happy. What a great place and so glad that we have them in Dallas. Thanks for being here Petropolitan. Pros: The loving environment and care given to my pet / my companion / trustworthy Cons: If really begins to get busy parking might be an issue but dont let it stop you more

All this and Kitty too! 1/17/2007

You may not know it but I'm actually a cat person...don't get me wrong I love my dog but it is my cats that I am truly in love with. So I had to go out of town and the person who regularly watches my house/pets was not available. I was frantic I knew about the Petropolitan cause I drive by it on my way to work. Anyway I stopped and talked to Chris, one of the owners. Very nice sincere man, after taking a tour of the facilities and talking with him I had no qualms about not only leaving my dog in his care but also my 2 precious kitty's. Anyway long story short...when I picked my babies up the dog looked great and the cats seemed very calm and at peace....no trauma from the experience...which if you know cats, you know is unusual. I never much cared to have a semi-stranger staying in my house to watch my animals and now that I've ""experienced"" the Petropolitan I won't ever have to have a house sitter again...your pets are in no better hands...they treat them as if they were their own. I highly recommend the shop services oh' and when it comes to toys and couture the have some very unique and stylish items...I bought a garden kit for my kitties so I can grow fresh greens indoors for their delectation. more

Drop off the Dog TODAY!!!! 1/10/2007

Pros: Smells Good inside The Shop Cons: Not Enough Collars to Coose From more

Best place for my dawg. 1/9/2007

I have a dog with bad skin and he has to be cleaned with a special shampoo weekly. Other places I've been have one price for a bath and they chage that regardless of if I get his nails clipped, glands done or ears cleaned. My dog doesn't need that weekly. I went and explained the situation and the guy at th from explained their concept of a maintenance program. Dawg gets a kennle bath (just a good bath and nothing else) three weeks and a full bath the 4th week and get his nails and everything done on the forth week. It's great because dawg gets to socialize and gets everything taken care of that he needs. The kennel baths run me a but $15 bucks less then the forth week, and I appreciate the fact that their not screwing me for the sake of business. Pros: Fair, easy going and entertaining more

Daycare, the best in Dallas 1/8/2007

My dogs have never been happier than when they see us pulling up to The Petropolitan!! I take them for daycare an average of three times a week, they sleep the days at home because of the playing they get in at the shop. Pros: Clean, happy, good people more
