Very good service and I really like that you don't put my dog in a cage. Nice groom. I will be back and recommend your place.

My dog Cody has been going to ShowDogs since he was a puppy. Cody is now 3 years old. He gets groomed every 6 weeks and always has a good groom. Cody also goes to Doggy Day Care 3 times a week, and absolutely loves it. He thinks he is the boss sometimes. There is never a time that Cody has not wanted to get out of the car to go to ShowDogs. He loves Jess and the girls, who are very good with him and the other dogs there. I would have no hesitation in recommending ShowDogs to prospective people wanting a good groom for their dogs and the doggy day care facility offered.

I highly recommend ShowDogs for pet grooming and their other services. I have been a client of Tatiana's for 5 years and I know that she is a highly qualified dog groomer, a very good pet owner and she employs only qualified helpers. She has always done a very good job with our Shih-Tzu x Bichon Panda. Thank you for the great service.
