Kassidy always races to get into the door at Brookline Dog Grooming. It seems that she has a good time there and we know that she is safe. Being open 7 days a week is certainly a plus! Even though Kassidy's bark isn't the easiest on the ears, the staff is good humored about it!

I really enjoy taking my dog to this location. It is fun to let her pick out her own toy, and she even gets a treat!
Maybe I am too much of a dog person, but anyone that loves my dog the way that these people seemed to, is pretty great in my eyes. My dog loves it so much that every time we walk by it, she jumps on the door because she wants to go inside.
In addition, all the animal products they have here are fantastic. I love being able to buy my dog a toy that I know is organic....as in she will not get cancer from ripping it apart and eating it (as dogs so often do).
I love ""do it yourself"" doggie wash as well! I would definitely recommend this place to others with a dog in the area.
As far as the pet supplies selection goes,it's a great little store. They have cute pet carriers and a huge food selection. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the store cat Mikey was so sweet! I might try their grooming services for my two cats who need a bath so badly...

Anyone who loves pets, myself included, feels the pain of your loss. Losing a canine companion is a sadness that ""non pet people"" will never understand. There is never a good time to lose a pet, however, at least he was not alone and was with people who were prepared to do whatever was necessary to try and save him. It is a gift that you were able to spend 17 years with your dog when so many pass away when they are much younger. It is unfortunate that our pets, who love us unconditionally, are only with us for a brief time. I am saddened by your loss and hope that time will heal your wounded heart.
My name is Rob Nager, I'm the only Certified Master Instructor in the state of Massachusetts for the Pet Tech Pet CPR, First Aid & Care programs.
On March 27, 2011 I conducted a 4-hour Pet First Aid & CPR class for the owner and entire staff of Brookline Grooming. After successfully demonstrating solid knowledge of all information and physical mastery of the lifesaving skills learned I was happy to provide each student with a 2-year certification in Pet CPR & First Aid.
Mindy, the owner of Brookline Grooming, called me soon after the class to inform me that she and a member of her staff had revived a dog who had stopped breathing while being groomed using the techniques they had learned from me. I believe she mentioned that the dog's owners were in the shop at the time and actually witnessed their heroic acts that in fact saved their dog's life.
While I am not able to comment on what may or may not have happened there on February 14, I am confident that Mindy and her staff were knowledgeable, prepared and willing to provide any/all lifesaving techniques that were possible for your poor dog. They had already saved one dog so I have no doubt they would have tried to do it again. I hope someday you will be able to find comfort in knowing that he was not alone and had trained and qualified people around him to give him the best care possible.
Please feel free to contact me at 781-727-1888 or rob@decadentdog(dot)com if I can be of help to you in any way as you deal with this sad loss. Unfortunately I've had a tremendous amount of experience helping clients who were grieving the loss of a beloved pet, I'll be happy to point you in the direction of pet loss support groups and a pet loss hotline where you can speak to trained counselors for free.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

This place is fantastic! I have 3 dogs and a few other little creatures and can always find what I need here! The grooming is amazing. The haircuts are always very well done and my dogs are always squeaky clean. They come out looking brand new! We have tried the doggie daycare aswell which is a blessing. My youngest goes for the day, plays, and comes home sleepy. The prices are reasonable and the staff is very helpful. I won't shop anywhere else! They are awesome! I highly recommend all of their services!
