  • Yeah I think it's worth it. We take our Cocker Spaniel to get his hair cuts there. They use some type of shampoo where he smells sooo good for days lol. They also cut their nails, hair, shampoo them, brush their teeth, clean their ears and I think you have to ask to get their anus expressed. I think that's what it's called LOL.

  • i think they do a great job. I have shih tzu's. You can watch the groomers thru the glass window to see how they handle the dogs and what cuts look really cute. :)

  • We used to have a couple of St. Bernards and we always took them to petsmart to be groomed. We were always very happy with the groomings done there. They do a really great job. It was worth it for us.

  • I am with the above poster who said that they dog smelled after it was groomed at Petsmart. I had my 3 dogs groomed there for the first time about a month ago and I am very unhappy with the job. They smelled awful afterwards, and now that the hair is starting to grow back a bit I can just how uneven the clipping was I am not talking about slightly uneven... it is horribly noticable and one of my puppies looks like his head is lopsided because of the awful job they did. I will NEVER go back to them again not to mention the bill was outrageous! I have 3 dogs under 15 lbs each (Lhasa Apso/Chihuahua mixes) and paid over $120.00! My regular groomer charges me $90.00 for them and you can bet I will be going back to them.
    I decided to try Petsmart on a reccomendation from a friend - big mistake.
