Canceled on me 2x without notice 7/26/2011

This is actually my first time do write something like this but I am really unhappy with the way my grooming appointment was handled. I have a cat that had horrible hairball problems and is shedding all over the place- she is miserable and so are we. I made an appointment to have my cat shaved here for the first time and they told me it would be $60 - which is almost 2x the amount I have paid other places - but this place was recommended to me and so I thought I would give it a try. i live on the 4th floor of an apartment that is having the elevator worked on, so last Friday I carried her down 4 floors to get her groomed. After she sat at the groomer for 2 hours, they called me and told me that the woman that shaves the cats isn't coming in b/c of an allergic reaction to something. So I picked her up and made another appointment for today. They were very apologetic and gave me some cat toys. Today I bring her in and it was obvious on the gentleman's face when I brought her in that he forgot to call me and tell me that this woman is still out. He made a big show of being sorry for this inconvenience and told me he would try to get me in with another groomer that he was friends with. He told me he would call me at 10 and let me know. It is now 11:45 and still no call. I am very unhappy by the way this was handled. They should have another person on call for when people get sick. It is hard enough to transport a cat, not to mention my 4th floor walk up, and thankfully she is a very calm cat and I have her at my studio right now as I work until the next appointment that I set comes around in a few hours. I have worked in customer service for a long time and I don't know why they didn't call me to tell me that we would have to reschedule. That is just courtesy - I have had a lot of time wasted. more

AWESOME! 1/5/2010

I have been going to Remington's for as long as they have been open - TEN YEARS NOW - WOW! - I knew Remington (the namesake Irish Setter) and now the other two red-heads there - they are awesome dogs! Aggressive? NOT, but they DO love to greet and meet the pups that come in....Rick and the staff at the shop are committed to Customer Service and if there has ever been a time something wasn't right (not the norm here though) THEY MADE IT RIGHT!!! Pros: Ambience, Cookies (esp. the smells!) Staff, Cust. Svc.! Cons: Parking - but it is do-able! more

GREAT, FRIENDLY SERVICE 12/30/2009

I have been taking my portuguese water dog, Josie, to Remingtons regularly for a couple years now. I like the friendly service, Josie always looks and smells great, and now goes straight to the treats behind Rick's desk when they bring her out to greet me. I have never noticed any problems with the owner's dogs being there in the room next door. I like the fact that this is a small, locally owned business that really cares about its customers and consistently expresses appreciation for my business. Pros: Service, Availability more

Quality guarenteed 12/16/2009

I took my sheperd chow mix tessy to get groomed by julie about 2 months ago. when I took her home I noticed her shedding alot more than usual. I took a metal comb to her and got out a ton of hair. She had obviously not been combed out like normal and her feathers looked like they were chewed off not cleanly cut ! I called and talked to Rick who booked me with Pedro who had done a great job before he worked on her this time around. I must say it the best shes ever looked Carry a former employee there was right in referring him also. He is awesome ! ! ! p.s stay away from ricks dog they seem very aggresive to have in a store front. They make tessy very scared and nervous everytime, with their loud angry barking. NOT COOL! Pros: excellent scissor work, Cons: parking, loud greeting from agrresive dogs more

Best in class 11/2/2009

I have gone here more than a few times with my bernese mountain dog, the grooming service is amazing. No matter how dirty I take him he is always returned clean and fluffly. He also loves the treats that Rick makes especially the BBQ.\r Price is resonable. Pedro usually gets my pooch back to me in around 2 1/2 hrs, which is awesome. Give these guys a chance you wont be sorry! Pros: grooming, staff, Treats!! Cons: parking, aggresive irish setter more

Expensive and price creeping up! 10/20/2009

The first time I took my dog, he was a puppy. I was charged $15. The next time, he was bigger, but still under 30 lbs. I was charged $30. I just looked at the most recent charge, which I expected to be $30 since he has not grown, and it was $45! I am not too happy as this was a surprise two weeks later, when I looked at my bank statement. What is the deal?? Needless to say, I won't be going there anymore. Pros: Others have stated the pros Cons: Expensive more

Awesome ! ! ! ! ! ! ! 7/9/2009

After circling the block twice I finally found a parking spot, I walked in to the cute little pet shop with my lab maggie only to be startled by an abrupt, ridiculous amount of barking from an irish setter. It seemed like he wanted to rip his way through the fence and attack my maggie. If that weren't bad enough the owner just stood their with a playful smirk on his face and said he a ""puppy""... WAKE UP MAN GET YOUR DOG!! Those dogs are not puppies they are a red flag. Anywho a young man took maggie into the back to be groomed and away from the ""puppy"". When I picked her up she looked really good, she smelled great and her nails where grinded down instead of clipped. A++ Pros: great grooming Cons: parking, noisey reception more

Good service 7/6/2009

I took my lab shepard mix named Bella to get groomed by a young man named Pedro. He offered me his carting treatment. It made for the most incredible grooming my Bella has ever gotten . They took so much shedding hair out. And grinded her nails instead of clipping them. Bella is much cooler now and doesnt pant as much. She walked out with struting her stuff, she even got a fancy bow that matched her collar! Try to avoid the receptionists dogs. They are the noisiest pair of barkers. I could hardly hear pedro who was 2 ft away from me. Pros: Excellent grooming Cons: Owners noisey dogs make hearing anything impossible more

best treats in the world! 8/19/2008

My dog absolutly loves Ricks treats he makes them fresh daily with all natural ingrideints! . I bought 2 pound for my little furry friends who got all snazzed up by a groomer named Pedro and his friend who took great care of them. Their coat used to shep non stop, now he is much better and looked extremly clean.\r Thanks guys! Pros: cookies, staff Cons: n/a more

best in town!! 4/28/2008

I loved my visit to remingtons I took sadie my shitzu to get groomed and was amazed by how she looked Pedro did a great job. Avoid saturdays though it is really busy. Pros good groomer, clean, smelled great fresh treats baked dailey!!! Pros: groomer, price, treats Cons: parking more

LOVE IT!!! 4/11/2008

I took my dog to remingtons last week and i must say I was impressed. He is usually very nervous but when he saw the groomer he acted like a pup again. which made me feel alot better about leaving him, My groomers name is Pedro, he did a wonderful job on my golden max. He has never looked so clean. He also did a great job tapering his feathers A++. Only cons are parking and receptionist make sure you make an appointment with Pedro and call back to confirm it!, the owner cant seem to manage a booking system. Pro's service, quality, consistancey, tlc, and a cute groomer :) Pros: groomer, quality, price, Cons: parking, receptionist more

GREAT WITH OLD DOGS 4/4/2008

This is a great local business to support. My dog hates baths and usually shakes all over when i take her to the groomers. This is the only place I have taken her where she doesn't look like i am sending her to doggie jail. she's old and deserves lots of TLC which she gets at remingtons. staff is super and doggie biscuits are first class. Pros: EXCELLENT STAFF Cons: PARKING IS SOMETIMES A PROBLEM more

cute place, nice owner. 10/27/2007

I went to Remington's because it was my girl's birthday last week and at the last minute I was able to get the coolest birthday cake for her and some of the neighbor's dogs. It was amazing. I have gotten cakes at 3 dog before, which were nice, but this one was way better. It was chicken flavor, or so she told me, and huge! They had their yummy cookies allover it too, this I did taste and the peanut butter ones were pretty darn good. The thing I really loved was the personality of the staff. Really made a big deal about her birthday and treated her like she was the most special dog in the world. They were also very knowlegable about dog foods and local businesses that cater to dogs. In fact, had I met them first I wouldn't have wasted so much time trying out certain groomers and dog daycares. I very much recommend remingtons for all pet lovers. Pros: great cakes, nice staff Cons: parking more

Not too thrilled. 9/9/2007

The people are nice, but their homemade treats made my dog very sick. She was eliminating these treats for three days. I had to take her to the vet and they said she ate some really bad food, this was the only thing we could think it would be. Ask for all ingredients before buying so your dog doesn't get sick. Pros: locally owned. Cons: parking can be horrible. more

best birthday cakes 8/24/2007

I am impressed by the dog birthday cake I received this week. I used to go elsewhere and found out they use hydrogenated oils in their cakes and treats, Remington's doesn't. Its healthy and the dogs loved it.\r They also had a good selection of foods and the owner Rick was really nice.\r I will always get my cakes there now. more

New Groomer is the best! My dog has never looked better 8/31/2006

Beyond the smells of garlic, chicken and many other wonderful treat flavors for my little one, there is a grooming room. I've taken my dog to Remington and friends for the last 3 years. His hair cuts have been ok, but nothing spectacular. Today I went in to find that they have a new grooming team. THIS TEAM IS AWESOME. When I picked up my mini-schnauzer, he has never looked so good coming out of there. If you have a schnauzer or any other dog that requires a specific cut, take them to Remington and friends! Pros: Wonderful staff, Great selection of products for pets, yummy treats for my dog! Cons: none now! more

Awesome Treats 4/25/2006

My dog loves their homemade treats and they have awesome rolled leather collars that dont itch. Sells high end dog food without parts (beaks & feet! yuk!) Pros: high end food, competitive prices, friendly service Cons: limited parking more
