I have stopped using Groomingdale's in favor of Bark Avenue on E. Brainerd Rd. The staff at Groomingdales seem to have better things to do than to pay attention to my dog. They are overpriced and do not even take the dogs out for a potty break if you've dropped them off for the work day. When I picked my dog up (and we used them 3 times before discovering wonderful Matt at Bark Ave) she was stressed out, thirsty, and needed to potty. Grooming is not the most fun thing for dogs, but I have found a place much less stressful for my girl-- and I don't have to put up with rude comments. I will not go back to Groomingdales and I'll recommend Bark Ave to all my friends.
