Unmatched Grooming and Care! 11/12/2010

My four dogs have been going to Snippers for well over 10 years and we've come to appreciate Susan and Donata more than I can express. Their newest acquisition, Michael, is just as humane, gentle, fastidious and conscientious.\r \r I live north of Boston and have a multitude of groomers to choose from much closer in proximity, but I would NEVER go elsewhere. Snippers' pricing is reasonable, their attention to detail unmatched and my dogs emerge from their day with the staff beautifully.\r \r I think it's clear that once your become a Snippers customer, you'll always a Snippers customer. more

Snippers is wonderful! 10/27/2010

Susan and Donata are great. I was very nervous the first time I left my sweet/shy Yorkie with them and was delighted when I picked him up all happy and adorable.\r \r We've been going to Snippers for three years now and I wouldn't bring my little guy anywhere else.\r \r more

great service! 5/28/2009

Donata has been cutting my dog's hair ever since he was a puppy! She's really good with him and he always gets compliments :) Pros: service, styling, attention to detail Cons: hard to get an appointment last minute! more

Best Dog Groomer in Boston 9/22/2008

I have been going to Susan's shop, Snippers, for 6 years. I have 3 rescue who was severely abused, one who was neglected and has neurological damage from a bad breeder and one who is a typical hyper yorkie pup. They are my family and I love them like children. All three go in together and in a few short hours come out looking and smelling fantastic! They also are completely relaxed and rejuvenated. Susan treats every dog as though they are her own. Even my Teddy (the dog with the history of abuse) trusts her. She and her assistant Donata are gentle and sweet to all 3 of my dogs. They are bathed together and groomed together and placed in a cage together when they are done so they have no anxiety and are there for a minimal amount of time. She uses top quality products and listens to every instruction I give her about grooming each differently. I am a perfectionist and have never found another groomer with her same level of skill, attention to detail, sweet personality, professional knowledge and love of animals. Over the 6 years Susan has also let me know of dental issues, ear infections, sore paws, gland problems and other issues I would not have noticed on each dog, which allowed me to catch and treat any problems before they became serious. I would not trust my dogs with anyone else. Pros: Atmosphere, Products, Parking, Service, Pricing, Scheduling, Extras more

And CATS too! 8/21/2008

I bring my long haired, very fluffy cat here and get back a silky detangled one back. Susan, the owner, is very nice and offers very reasonable prices. Donata (sp?) is the cat groomer and she truly loves cats and they know it. My cat is very shy and is not fond of other animals around her, but when she is at Snippers as long as Donata is there, no problem. My cousin has had collies groomed there and they come home strutting their very soft coat. The size of the dog does not seem to be a problem either as my aunt's Great Dane has also been washed there. The one thing I know for sure is that after an animal is groomed there their coat tends not to mat up so quickly and it is easier to keep them groomed. Pros: Can drop off and they do call when your pet is ready. Cons: It might take two turns around the block to find a parking spot. more

Caring and Competent Groomers 5/29/2008

I never had a problem finding a groomer for my Silkie but my Yorkie would always come away with some comment about how difficult she was and a promise to charge extra the next visit.\r When I found Snippers I felt like I'd struck gold. I have been taking my dogs there for two years now and have never ever been less then pleased with the exceptional way that my dogs are handled. Pros: Great service, reasonably priced, Happy pretty dogs. more

Extraordinary dog/cat grooming and exceptional product line. 2/18/2007

Having three dogs (2 German Shorthaired pointers & a terrier mix), Susan and staff at Snippers allow me to bring all three in for their day of beauty - highly unusual for other shops. After leaving her shop, my kids' nails have been beatifully trimmed and grinded ,and their coats are shimmering and fragrant. \r \r Having had poor service at self-proclaimed, high-end facilities, I have devoted myself to Snippers for several years and have never been disappointed. With that said, I've had ample opportunity to view their response with seemingly upset or difficult dogs (even a few cats!), and all the critters say goodbye with a glistening coat and a happy smile. Snippers also carries a line of dog accessories, exceptional holistic products, organic dog food and fresh-baked doggie treats as well as some dental products that cost twice as much online. Clearly, I am a fan and longterm client of Snippers, however, it's through their hard work and personable approach with my dogs that that has endured. You owe it to your best friend to try Snippers - can't imagine why one would go elsewhere! Pros: Snippers carries an array of dog accessories, organic food and holistic products. Cons: N/A more

The best dog groomer in Boston 2/12/2007

Located at 524 Dorchester Ave. in South Boston, Snippers is owned and operated by Susan Abner and is the ONLY groomer in Boston certified by the AKC. We have a very difficult fox terrier who we have taken to multiple places only to have been asked not to return due to his bad behavior. But Susan and the staff at Snippers have this way with him. He is calm, relaxed, and receives the best service possible. We recently moved west of Boston, but we still make the drive into the City to go to Snippers because our dog loves it and we feel like he receives care here we couldn't get anywhere else. Snippers is truly a hidden gem located in South Boston. I highly recommend it! Pros: Highest possible level of service and care for your dog. Cons: While not Newbury st. or a trendy South End Bistro, the South Boston location is still very close to the City more
