Outstanding groomer! Patient, just great with all dogs (and their owners!). My dog was terrified of being around an electric clipper. Yet, KC Washburn got his trust immediately and gave him a very professional clip...tough for an English Cocker Spaniel.
She also "babysits" dogs and is superb. I can't say enough good things! And she doesn't charge enough as far as I have seen. 50 pound dog: shampoo with fragrant, natural, organic shampoo, great clip, clipped nails, cleaned ears, and did an excellent job on this guy's very furry feet...getting all mats. FOR $45!!! No nicks, no cuts. KC is GREAT!
I recently moved to Dayton, and I am so convinced that KC is the best groomer & handler I've ever known, that even in this time of high gasoline costs, I am happy to drive over to Reno with my best friends! Aside from taking good care of their coats, she is a constant resource for me as regarding general information on their health & behavior. I'm so grateful for her!
I was looking for a new groomer in my area and heard about this shop from a friend. I have had several groomers tell me that my dog wasn't welcome in their shop because it tried to bite and wiggled so much that they couldn't cut her hair. I took my dog to see KC and not only did she come home looking the best she's ever looked but KC right away took the time to get down to Missy's level and get to know her a little. She gave her a massage to calm her down for her grooming and when I picked Missy up she was in great spirits and was running around playing with the other dogs. KC talked to me about helping Missy work through her fear of groomers and making the grooming process less stressful by seeing Missy for 15 minutes a week to help her relax. We've brought Missy in for the last three weeks since her initial visit, just for table training and this last time we went to DogSpaw Missy could hardly wait to get out of the car and into the grooming shop!!! It's amazing! KC has transformed my "naughty" dog nobody else wanted to groom into a happy go lucky dog at the groomer in just a short period of time. I'm extremely disappointed that groomers in the past have never taken the time or cared enough to speak with me in regards to solving my dog's issues. It says a lot about a groomer when they care more about putting my dog at ease than they do about my money. THIS IS THE BEST GROOMER WE'VE EVER BEEN TO! The shop is clean and the groomer is great!
