I have 2 medium sized mixed breeds. I take them for ""summer"" cuts 3 times a year. A summer cut is just a plain haircut, cut short all over.
Before I moved here to Roseville, I took them to an independent groomer in Grass Valley. It took about 2 hours longer in GV, but the cut was PERFECT and the price was the same. The dogs were happy and not stressed - and I felt the same!
I've gone to this Petco twice. They didn't have to be there as long, but the cut was not professional at all. They looked okay, but I could see razor marks in several places (like how a rug looks right after it's vacuumed) and the scissor cuts on the tails and ears were uneven.
The dogs were just as happy as ever and not stressed, so I felt fine. They're not show dogs, but next time I'll try PetSmart.
Pros: Good service, normal prices
Cons: Not the best grooming results
