Grooming turned out well, pricing was fair, store is very clean and welcoming. 12/7/2016

I went to Animal Kingdom to get my giant schnauzer groomed. When I called they were able to have an appointment for me for that week, but I wanted a specific groomer (she was recommended to me) so I waited another 2 weeks for her availability. It didn't take too long for the grooming to be done, when they were finished I wasn't able to pick him up right away but they were very accommodating with keeping him until I could come. I didn't have anything to compare the pricing to but it seemed very reasonable. I was very happy with how the grooming turned out, and the employees were all very friendly and accommodating. The storefront is very quaint and clean - you usually expect these places to be full of hair, but it wasn't. I felt safe leaving my dog there too. I would recommend them and I will be going back. more

I loved the day care. 12/2/2016

I loved the day care at Animal Kingdom. Everything went really well, we took our poodle there and they actually groomed her and did a very good job. Everything went well and we didn't have a single problem. I posted a note for them somewhere else online saying that everything was good. more

Great work, reliable service! 12/1/2016

I am very pleased with how the work from Animal Kingdom went. The people there were very professional and helpful for what I needed. They were able to do the job right when I needed, and the grooming was done quickly and very well. I will definitely use Animal Kingdom again, and I highly recommend their services. more

Got my dog groomed without prior appointment, they did a great job. 11/30/2016

I took my dog to Animal Kingdom to get her groomed. I didn't have an appointment scheduled but I showed up at 7am and they took her in. By 12:30 they called me to say she was finished, so it did take some time, but I think it's because I didn't have an appointment. They did a great job with the grooming, my dog looked beautiful! And not stressed when I came to get her. The people seemed fine and friendly enough. I would go back to them and I recommend them too. more

Very friendly, great service, good to me and my dog! 11/2/2016

This was my first time using Animal Kingdom. I took my dog to them to get shampooed and I was so pleased with their service, I recommend them to everyone! They were very nice to me and very nice to my dog. I noticed there are a lot of young people working there, which I was impressed to see, I support that. The service was great and the pricing is fair, best of all my dog came back looking better than when she went in. Very happy with Animal Kingdom and I would go back to them again. more

Happy with the grooming job they did. 10/31/2016

I've used Animal Kingdom for their pet grooming service twice and I am very happy with the work that they've done. I have a miniature Schnauzer and the grooming job looked great both times - mini Schnauzers are not the easiest to do! They were quick and friendly and reliable, and I felt comfortable leaving my dog with them. They are obviously animal people and will take care of your pet. I would go back to them again and I highly recommend them for grooming or other pet needs. more

Okay 10/25/2016

They're convenient because you can drop your dog off in the morning, but they take a long time to finish, so you have to wait the whole day, basically. I had them wash and shave my dog, but when I got her back, she still smelled kind of dirty. I don't know what they did or didn't do, but she still smelled a bit. RESPONSE FROM Animal Kingdom: Thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We apologize that you're pet was not cleaned to your satisfaction. We'd like the opportunity to make things right by offering a 20% discount on your next grooming. In the future, if you inform us that you need to pick up at a certain time, we will do our best to accommodate you. Keep in mind, dropping off at 7 a.m. is a convenience for early commuters. Groomers do not arrive until 10 a.m., which is why drop-off is between 7 and 10 a.m. Hope to hear from you soon. more

Great work, good cleaning 10/4/2016

I am very happy with the work I received from Animal Kingdom, I went there to have some cleaning done for my pets, went very well, the pets came out looking great. Will definitely use again, and I highly recommend! more

They did a very good job, I was very pleased with them. 9/12/2016

Animal Kingdom did such a good job, I'll gladly give them a review! I got the full service from them, everything, they did the cutting and washing and they were great. This was my first time going and I will use them again, of course! I just thought they did a good job, I was very pleased with it. more

Our cats were in need of some serious grooming 2/26/2016

I have two long haired Himalayan cats and they were in desperate need of grooming. The only problem is that there are no cat groomers in the area, mostly dog groomers, so we did some research and found Animal Kingdom. I thought their groomers did a pretty good job but there were some spots that they missed, like between our cats toes and stomachs, where excess hair tends to grow. We've had other cat groomers before who did a better job, but we want to continue to use Animal Kingdom because of the friendly service. I also won't entirely fault them because one of our cats is especially neurotic so we think with repeat visits, the groomers and cats will get to know each other better and establish a relationship. This was also a unique situation because we had been in a hotel for weeks and the cats were getting antsy, so they may not have been behaving well during their grooming. I'm looking forward to taking the cats back to Animal Kingdom, our cats were long overdue for a grooming and they took care of them. more

Awesome! 2/24/2016

The people at Animal Kingdom were very knowledgeable about my cat and took a lot of patience to answer all my questions. They were just very pet-friendly. I had got my cat from somebody who who didn't take care of him, so I took him in to be cleaned up. He had a lot of fur and they gave him a wash and a trim and clipped his nails. He was beautiful when we left; they even put a little bow on him and it was just really nice. Their prices were reasonable, too. The receptionist, Camille, was very nice, and the lady who serviced the cat was great. more

Awesome job. My first time going there and let me tell you, I'm going back! 1/26/2016

I went to Animal Kingdom because there was a problem with the place where I used to take my dog, I think something happened and he had some kind of scare in the previous place. But the guy at Animal Kingdom was real nice, they did an awesome job and it smelled wonderful in there. My dog was real happy when I picked him up, I had no problem taking the dog. It's my first time going there and let me tell you, I'm going back. The price was great too! Let me tell you, compared to what I'm usually spending for him to get hurt and not even look good, they charge over a hundred dollars and usually they make him look like a cat, not like he is supposed to look! I highly recommend Animal Kingdom. more

Five star grooming 1/15/2016

I took my puppy to get groomed at Animal Kingdom and she looked absolutely adorable! They didn't make her too short and they did a great job, especially since she hates getting groomed. The entire experience was excellent, I met Lisa the groomer and she did a lovely job. The person at the front desk was lovely as well. Lisa really took charge of my dog and got her to cooperate and I would recommend Animal Kingdom to anyone - they're very, very good. more

Great service 12/1/2015

The service at Animal Kingdom was great. They were very responsive, the dog looked great and everything looked exactly like we wanted. Good all around. more

Very thourough and detailed, great job 9/18/2015

Animal Kingdom did a great job grooming my dog. It was a little pricey and took a long time, but they did a nice job. They handled my dog well and I would probably use them again. more

Clean, compassionate, and caring. 6/15/2015

The people at Animal Kingdom appeared friendly, feeling, and compassionate towards the animals. They are very caring towards the animals. They are also willing to be very liberal about scheduling, which is very important to me. They provide grooming for my pet and I am always satisfied with the end result. Animal Kingdom should be a place where customers look into finding care for their pets. It's definitely clean, and it smells good, which is good because cleanliness is important at pet places. more

Excellent! 5/7/2015

I was very satisfied with the way Animal Kingdom took care of my puppy. This was my first time using their services and I was very impressed. I was referred by a coworker who has been a very happy customer with this company for three years, and I have had the same experience. They were great and will take care of your pet as if they were their own. more

Amazing customer service and very caring for animals! 4/28/2015

The girls that work at Animal Kingdom are very very pleasant. They took my dog with open arms. Overall they are very calm and caring. My uncle used them before and I liked how they treated his dog so I decided to give them a try. After I saw they way they treated my baby I always come back to Animal Kingdom. more

Good, local, competent merchant 4/24/2015

We were looking for a new groomer, as our dogs had not been groomed in several months. We brought them to Animal Kingdom. Our particular breed is not a common breed, and it is hard to find groomers who will take them. Our dogs came out well-groomed and well cared for. They also seemed happy there. Animal Kingdom is a good, local, competent merchant and veterinarian office. more

Excellent Experience. 4/17/2015

This was the first time I worked with Animal Kingdom. I didn't have an appointment with them, but I called early in the morning, and the receptionist told me they could squeeze my Shih Tzu in if I got there before 10. The appointment finished before 2 p.m, and the experience was friendly, professional, and reasonably priced. I would recommend them. more
