I started taking my pair of golden retrievers here years ago when I got tired of bathing them myself. They do a remarkable and thorough job washing big dirty dogs. Now I have two little Maltese mixes who go to Cindy at Blue Velvet on a regular basis. They always go into the shop happy and excited to be there. The shop has an updated look and is always clean. The haircuts are top notch and Cindy treats them like they are her own little babies. My dogs seem to love it there. I would recommend Blue Velvet most highly to anyone for any breed of dog.
I had a great experience at Blue Velvet. I have been uing their service for the past 3 years. I usuually have my dog in by 9 am and they usually call me by 3 at the latest to pick him up, of course on Friday and Saturday's it may take a little longer due to the high volume of buisness. Mondays have been the best for me in by 8 and out by 12 or 1. I told my sister about Blue Velvet so when ever she comes in town( from Greensboro) she gets her dog groomed there as well.

It appears as if the place is falling apart my dog was shaking like a leaf his hair cut looked really bad. I also found out thru public record that at least two of the employees have felony drug charges either convicted or pending.. very poor management i told manager what i wanted and it is not what i got. I am going to Canine Carousel from now on
I worked for Blue velvet in 2009 and got to see what went on behind the sence. I really didn't like how they treated the dogs. Very rough and even one time I SAW THE MANAGER OF ALL PEOPLE HIT A DOG because the dog was old and scared and bit here..
I feel bad you have to lie. Disgruntled workers that get fired will lie. To bad you can't spell. I suggest you find something else to do with your time. And I feel sorry for the next place you are employed. This is the garbage they will have to read when they fire you.

I remember taking my dog to this place when I was just a kid. They always did a wonderful job, and were very nice. I've heard some new owners took over at some point, and now things are different. Recently, I made an appointment for early in the morning (they said that was the best time to bring her in) and got my dog there by 8:50 a.m. I filled out my information card and circled and starred my cell phone number for contact even telling the person at the desk to call me on this number. Well, they didn't call my cell phone, they only called my house...one time. Why ask for a cell phone if you don't plan on using it? This previous time, when I dropped my dog off at 8:50, I didn't get her back until 4:30 and that was because I went to their store. I had called to check up on her at 2 o'clock and was told that it would be at least 2 more hours till she was ready. Apparently, they mixed up my dog with another, and my dog was already ready. But why make an appointment if they're not going to start until the afternoon? I called another groomer close by and they said for 45 dollars they would have my dog cut in at most an hour. For 6 dollars more, I think I'll take it to the other place.
