Grrrr8!!! Rina and her staff do a great job of working with the difficult dogs that we own. One is an older Cocker Spaniel who is very set in HIS ways. The other is a very spoiled Shih-Tzu who thinks HE has to have his way all the time. Neither like having their nails trimmed. But most of all our Shih-Tzu does not like having his face washed, combed or groomed. With all this in mind, they both look amazing when they get picked up. I have never felf uncomfortable leaving my "BABIES" with Rina and her staff.
I'm writing this review today to explain how impressive Rina's grooming business is. Herself & her staff are so patient with our pets! Her salon is always sparking & she always goes the extra mile, fashioning bandanas for all pets groomed in her salon. I always refer friends or family when I see a four legged friend who would benefit from a trip to A Paw Spa :) Our pets & all of her clients fully & completely trust Rina & her crew with our precious little fur babies. That's very hard to come by!
I am so glad to have finally found "Groomer Peace"! Over the years of having my dear Smokie, I have tried so many groomers, but never found the one, until I visited A Paw Spa. Not only is the interior of the salon clean and welcoming, but the employees, especially the owner, Rina, are all a treat to deal with! When I tell Smokie we are going to see Miss Rina, he is so excited! Ever since finding Rina and her salon, Smokie is excited to get groomed and bathed, where he hated it before. Rina, thank you so much for making Smokie's grooming experience so positive, you are awesome and I will never go anywhere else!
We have been bringing our dogs (a variety of breeds) to Rina for 7+ years. They have received loving gentle care every time and always come home looking and smelling great. Rina always honors our special grooming requests and was especially gentle with our very Sr citizen when she became unable to stand for long periods of time. We drop our little guys off for doggie daycare when we plan a long day of skiing and they always look forward to these days.
I have never left a review before but felt I needed to write one today.....I Just picked my Shih tzu up from her first grooming Rina and her crew and couldn't be happier with the results!. My dog is older and a bit cranky at times and can be a challenge to groom and our past experiences with other groomers have been quite unpleasant for my pup. Rina was amazing with her and she looks fabulous. No nicks, razor burns or any other problems she even managed to put two pretty little bows on hers ears ( that has never happened before) my dog doesn't sit still for that stuff lol. We have found a new groomer for my Miss Beezy....We'll be seeing you again in about 4 weeks.:)
HELLO TO ALL THOSE LOOKING FOR A GREAT PLACE TO HAVE YOUR DOG OR CAT GROOMED! I have had my Sammy visit with Rina several times...he comes out looking GREAT...smells good and even gets a cute little scarf to go with the season or holiday. The only issue I have with him going there is I think he likes it there better than home. Rina told me that the excess hair he has will best be removed by a special combing and she promised that he would have very few loose hairs...she was wrong ... he had no loose hairs for almost a week...I won't take my pup any place else. He gets a treat, smells great, looks great, and comes home super happy! Thanks Rina and staff ... signed SAM your customer pup for life. I will be seeing you before Thanksgiving for Sams regular freshening up and possible my kitty Scruffs too.
Dearest Potential Client, I am writing this just to give you some food for thought. How often do you walk away from a business with a good, wow that was a great experience kind of feeling and maybe tell one person, but how many of you would really take the time to seek out a way to publicly tell your feelings? Most would happily continue to return to that business but not make the effort to come here and wrtie a positive review. However, most people if unhappy will beeline to their computer to write a scaving review. All I ask is that you consider that when someone writes a negative review, there are hundreds and hundreds of happy customers who you are not aware of because of human nature. Please also be aware that employees know the importance of this type of advertising and I have been made aware that many terminated employees will try to tarnish a businesses reputation by this method. It started as a great way to review a business, but over time, it unfortunately has lost its ability for you to trust whos words you are reading. Now there are even companies that feed off this service, and they call daily trying to get businesses to "pay a fee" to get bad reviews "removed", and they dont even remove them, they pay people to go to the business site and write fake good reviews to push those bad ones farther down the line, so people wont see them. I have been in this business 34 years, owned 5 successful business, have loyal long term staff members and welcome you to visit my website at www.apawspalittleton.com , you are also welcome to stop in for a shop tour at your convience. Thank you for taking the time to read this post. Rina Meyers Owner/Groomer

I read all the wonderful reviews on here and the fact that they have won the best spa award, I didn't think I could go wrong! The owner was very rude from the moment I walked in the door, I almost walked out and wish I would have, My sweet little Coton now looks like a Schnauzer and the price quote on the phone was $35, I was told she would be a little extra because of some matts in her ears- grand total $62. I will never go back!

This is the best place we have ever taken our dogs. Rina has been grooming our Bichon for four years now, and we couldn't rave more about her and her spa. Our dog looks beautiful every time. If I have a special request, Rina is always anxious to do exactly what I want and the staff here is always the friendliest and most accommodating. I feel very comfortable leaving my dog in their care, I would (and do) recommend Rina and A Paw Spa to everyone.

We took our dog Max to A Paw Spa in December for a holiday grooming and the groomer was very concerned about getting the haircut as we wanted it. My husband dropped off and he didnt really know what to say so she called me and we discussed it by phone. When I came to pick Max up, I saw that the store was not only clean but adorable inside. I asked to see the facility and the girl behind the counter gave me a tour. I was amazed how nice this place is and was happy to have found them. They even gave Max a Christmas gift bag with a toy! We will definately be bringing Max back!!!

Rina was incredibly rude to me when I told her I was not happy with the way my pet looked. This was the first and LAST time I will take my pet to this place. She acted annoyed that I wasn't happy with what she did and told me that the cut she gave my pet was ""standard"" and ""if that's not what I want then don't ask for it."" I would think that she would be concerned about customer satisfaction----especially a new customer that she should want to return. I can only imagine how she treated my pet while I was gone considering the abrasive way she spoke to me.
Rina and her staff have groomed my Wheaton (Chloe) for 4 years. I have had Wheaton's for 17 years and no one in the area does as good a job as Rina and the A Paw Spa staff. They are always friendly and helpful. The shop is clean and always look nice. I am comfortable leaving Chloe with Rina and Chloe is always happy to see her. I always recomend A Paw Spa to everyone I meet that has a dog. I would never take Chloe to anyone but Rina.
I have been taking my standard poodle to Rina for over a year. Rina and her staff do a wonderful job. Lily had not been to a groomer before I got her, so she was nervous at first. Rina and the girls worked with her so much to make her feel comfortable, and they are all very good to her. Lily also has a very thick coat and Rina worked with me to find a length that is comfortable for Lily and easier to maintain. Rina and her staff go out of their way to make sure they are doing exactly what my dog needs — i.e., no cookie-cutter grooming — they pay attention to who my dog is, and how best to care for her. They are always very friendly and I know they really love Lily. I will not go anywhere else and neither will Lily!
I run a mobile business because of Rina. She is the person that gave me all the knowledge and inspiration for being a pet lover and groomer. I have a 6 year old Great Pyrenees and He has a hard time standing for long periods of time. The large kennels and back yard play area accommodate his large size. She allows him to rest between bath dry and clip. Which is why as a groomer I take my Big Brodie to A Paw Spa. He comes out looking like a show dog and feels like a bunny! We love Rina and her staff and thank her for doing a wonderful job!
My pups go to A Paw Spa every Monday for their special spa treatments. They get so excited when they see it is Rina's store we are parked in front of. They love Rina and the Girls. Thank you A Paw Spa for making your place a home away from home for Skeeter and Lily!
I would not consider taking my long haired lhasa apso anywhere but to A Paw Spa. I interviewed many groomers before deciding on Rina and her staff. They do an outstanding job and keep my dog in show like condition. They are always very accomodating to my needs and changing schedule. Everyone is always so cheerful and friendly. Best of all when we pull up my dog is happy to be there. I should also mention it smells great! I pass atleast two other grooming places on the way to A Paw Spa but it is well worth the distance I travel. Thanks Rina
We used to take our cat to Rena to be bathed and shaved. She did a great job and cats are not easy! Sadly our cat passed away last year however we take our two dogs there to be groomed and we do have our cocker shaved every so often and have never had a problem. Our pups love Rena and her girls.
There arent many businesses that you can say that you are satisfied with 100% of the time, but with A Paw Spa, I can say that loud and clear. We always have a great experiences with A Paw Spa! My Dogs love to go see RIna (the owner) and all of her girls. They treat our furry family and the rest of us like we are a part of their personal family. The business is always clean and appealing with lots of little extra goodies you cant find anywhere else. The dogs come home sparkling clean from head to toe and perfectly groomed. We have a hard to groom dog and they work wonders with him! I would drive miles to have my dogs groomed at A Paw Spa!!!
I absolutely adore Rina and her employees! I have three totally different breeds of dogs and they know how to handle them "just so"!
Our almost 15 year old lab is a nervous Norman when he walks in and they calm him right down. The nine year old Cairn acts like he owns the place. The two year old Bulldog loves her "ladies in waiting" who groom her just so!
This is the first salon I've gone to that my dogs actually DON'T put their "brakes on" in front of the building! And I know that any place that lets you "come in the back" to check things out is legit! I've been to some shady places where you didn't know how clean the place was and they would NEVER have allowed you to tour the place!
From the moment you enter the shop with it's funky pink and black color scheme and all the adorable things for sale, you know it's the right place for you animal. I LOVE A PAW SPA!!
You know when you find something great and you want to share it with others? I feel that this groomer and staff are just that. We have two small dogs that can be quite a handful sometimes, they do a remarkable job with them. They have a friendly staff that greet you with a smile, they ask if there are any concerns or special requests. Yes I am that dog owner that considers our pets part of the family our "children" if you will, they have always come back beautiful and healthy head to toe. I would highly recommend this groomer to anyone who wants their special friends to be pampered and loved while they have to be away from you.
Thanks!!! Keep up the good work .
