I was very satisfied with Vanessa's service. She did EXACTLY what I asked for and made my dog look very cute! I will definitely continue to go to her and refer other people to her.

Great, great, great!! 2/19/2009

I have been taking my dog Jazz , a shihtzu, to Vanessa's for over a year now for grooming and boarding. My dog is old and these days doesn't show much energy or excitement but he gets excited when we go to Vanessa's!! I know that when I take Jazz to Vanessa's he will get several things: a great haircut/groom, loving care, free roam of the place, and a safe environment. I trust Vanessa completely with my dog and because of her love for animals, I know my dog is safe there and receives individual attention. The prices are well..... a little bit pricey (sorry Vanessa!!) but it is well worth it. I would rather pay more knowing that my dog is being treated well and I know he will get a good groom rather than taking him to a place where it is overcrowded with dogs, he comes back smelling like urine, I don't know how he is being treated by staff or if his needs are being met, etc. Especially my dog because he is old and fragile! For example, I love the animal hospital my dog goes to (they have a great reputation) and I know he is treated well there, but even there my dog has gotten the wrong food, his blanket was lost, etc and so I don't like to board him there! I know those things won't happen at Vanessa's!! Thanks Vanessa for all you do!! more

THE WORST EVER!!! If u really DO luv ur babies...ths is nt t plc 2 go!!! 9/22/2008

I took my baby to get groomed, on the Tuesday before Ike. I requested the lion cut w/a trim tail. When I picked him up, he did have the lion cut but his tail was shaved instead of trim, which unfortunately I didn't address their mistake because I wasn't trying to argue. On the way home I realized his hair was all uneven, his paws were not done, and his nails were not even cut. I was supposed to take him back that Thursday to fix their HORRIBLE job, but could not because of prepatations for the storm. Unfortunately, I had to evacuate and did not make it back to Houston until today, 9/22, I called Vanessa & spoke to her. She was horrible & started raising her voice at me asking why I did not come in before, she must live in ""La La Land"" to not realize what has happened in the area. Vanessa said she WAS NOT going to fix my baby's hair & WOULD NOT do it for ""free,"" even though she HAD ALREADY CHARGED ME $72.00 for a horrible cut! Horrible customer service & hair cut! There are way better places than this so called ""groomer/dog day care."" Pros: NOTHING!!! Cons: EVERYTHING!!! more

This is the ONLY place in Houston we take our dog! 6/14/2008

Vanessa and staff are fantastic. We have taken our Golden Retriever (Gracie) to Vanessa on numerous occasions for both grooming and boarding. She treats Gracie and us as members of the family. Gracie always looks great when we pick her up from being groomed. Pros: prices, friendly staff Cons: none! more

In Response 5/3/2008

I would like to take a moment to respond to the comment left on 4/12/08. Unfortunately, I cannot repond to complaints of unfollowed requests when I do not know, specifically, which things were asked for that the client did not receive, or feels he/she did not receive. Constructive criticism is always helpful when openly communicated, as it is only through knowing why someone is unsatisfied that I can hope to remedy the situation. I can attest that clients are told the price of the services they desire before anything is done. I feel our prices are fair and reasonable, and quite comparable with other independently owned grooming businesses. As far as the products we use, I understand that what constitutes a ""pleasant scent"" is not the same for all people. Please know that our customer can decline the use of the pet cologne. If a client comes to retrieve their pet before being called, I cannot guarantee the animal will be ready whenever they come in. I groom the animals in a room separate and completely out of view of the waiting area, so I cannot see how I could have had a lengthy conversation about anything while the client was waiting for me to finish grooming her pet. more

Your Dog Is Treated Like Family 5/2/2008

This is a 5 star facility. Before taking my dog to a groomer, I ask questions so that I can be fully informed. Do I want my dog to be in a cage free environment? Do I want my dog to be flea free? (He was gifted with fleas at another grooming place). Do I want my dog to be treated like he is family by the groomer? Do I want my dog to be groomed and look absolutlely fabulous? I answered a resounding YES to all these questions and was thoroughly thrilled with Vanessa and the shop. more

First Time Visit Went Well 1/23/2008

I recommend Vanessa's Grooming Table. She did a great job bathing my dog, checking him for fleas, cleaning out his dirty ears, cutting his nails, trimming parts of his hair, and brushing out my lab mix (65+ lbs). He was shedding like nothing else! My dog smelled great and seemed happy with her (and he generally hates being groomed). more

Vanessa is AWESOME 8/15/2007

If I could give Vanessa more than 5 stars, I would! She is great with my dog, and you can tell because he is actually excited to see her, not scared. She is great with keeping in touch, she emails me and lets me know whats going on, or calls if I forgot an appointment. Pros: Affordable, Good Service, Keeps my dog happy more

Superb Groomer---Double Thumbs Up!! 7/22/2007

I own a daycare/boarding/grooming facility and recently sent a client of mine to Vanessa. The client owns 2 large, elderly labs that were loaded with ticks. The scope of work to be done was beyond what we could handle due to their size. I had also contacted Petco and Petsmart; neither of them could promise that they could remove all the ticks from these dogs. Vanessa opened her doors on a Sunday for these dogs, worked diligently on them for a few hours, and I am delighted to say both dogs are tick-free, they're super-clean, and she charged our client a wonderful price for all the hard work she put in. Plain and simple, Vanessa is great at what she does. So if anybody is looking for a terrific groomer at super prices, make it your business to call her! Pros: Reliable, detail-oriented, great everything! Cons: Absolutely none! more
