Great grooming services at fair prices. I have a long hair cat and it was approximately $40 for a wash and blow dry + nail trim. Very well located on West Alabama near Montrose. A total "mom & pop" type business and they sell adorable cat toys and the like for the most finicky cats and their human mommy's. :) My only rather large complaint, and the reason I did not give 5 stars is they have absolutely no concept of "appointments" or "time management." Supposedly their first appointment is at 10:00, but when pressed, they'll tell you 9:00. When pressed further, they'll tell you 8:00 for special circumstances. So when you think you've got the first appointment of the morning (at 9:00) there is a strong likelihood that you do not. Furthermore, they will start working on your cat, then let him "rest" and go work on another cat, and your cat gets forgotten about...The first time I went, an appointment that should have taken 2 hours tops, took 4. The second time, after my cat had been there for 2.5 hours, I called to get an approximate pick up time and THEY HADN'T EVEN STARTED YET! I found this to be totally unacceptable. If you're in a hurry, this is not the place for you. If you have all day and a very flexible schedule, go for it, they are good at their job, they're just awful at time management. They also seem completely unaware and unphased that a customer might be upset if they are running 2-4 hours behind schedule. And this is the norm, not the exception. It's VERY laid back... perhaps a bit more than is justifiable. In my opinion, they either need to allow more time between appointments, take fewer appointments or get additional staff because it's not fair to busy moms to expect a pet grooming session to become an all day affair.
Catnip Inn is wonderful!!!! The owner,Vickie, is so sweet and genuinely cares about all the cats! She was very understanding when I was concerned to board my cat for the first time and answered all my boarding questions! She was very kind in reassuring me that all would be well and my cat would have a blast! She was right!! Debra, a groomer, is amazing with cats. She is so compassionate and kind to all the cats that come through the door. Her passion for cats shines through in her daily work! I cannot say how many times my cat has been difficult during a grooming session but Debra loves her, attitude or not! For that I am truly grateful!! Amy, another groomer, lives on the premises and is also wonderful with cats!! She really takes the time to get to know each cat's personality and won't forget a name or face! To sum it up, while at Catnip Inn my cat is treated as their very own! She gets all the attention and love she needs! And they have a cat playroom... how neat is that!! I have recommended Catnip Inn to all my friends with cats and urge anyone who is looking to board their cat to stop by their place for a visit! You won't be disappointed!! Thank you Catnip Inn for taking such wonderful care of my cat!!!!
My husband and I just finished Bryce and Angie's six week basic to advanced obedience training and behavior correction. We couldn't be happier! Trigger (our australian shepard/blue heeler mix puppy ) came with no training, and a fear aggression to new people and other dogs. Per our request, not only did Bryce train our dog to full obedience, but he also brought in his dogs (super well trained, to an impressive competition level) to help Trigger learn how to greet new dogs. We spent six weeks learning sit, lay down, climb (an awesome, rare obedience technique of stay), loose-leash walking, heel, sit and lay down while in a heel command, leave it, down, and free (another awesome command). He taught Trigger these steps, but also worked with my husband and I to help us understand why trigger was acting out, or how he understands each command. We couldn't be happier with our transformed puppy! Bryce and Angie came to our place to work with Trigger in our own environment, and that in and of itself sold us! These two are the real deal, havung trained for six months to a professional level, and they were worth every single penny! Our only regret? Not calling them sooner!
