Pets At Home - Groom Room Review

My little puppy, Minnie, has been desperate for a groom! Sadly, we got let down 3 times by our usual groomer so after a few choice words I decided not to give them the opportunity to let us down again. It wasn't fair on my girl, she could barely see because her hair was so long and anyone with a Bichon Frise or a similar breed knows they need regular grooming appointments, they're pretty high maintenance but so so worth it!

I couldn't find anyone else local to me with availability, most had a 6-8 week waiting list! She couldn't wait that long, no way. So I trolled Google and found out Pets At Home pet store now do pet grooming in store.


Their website is so easy to navigate and has a ton of info for pet owners. I was so surprised at how much variety in services they actually offer. It's like a one stop shop for everything pet related. Amazing!

I called my local Groom Room and spoke to a lovely lady who managed to squeeze Minnie in. I wanted the full works for my girl, and oh boy did she need it!

We arrived at our appointment and were greeted by the lovely staff, Minnie got such a warm welcome and was so excited, her tail has never wagged so fast. Maybe she could sense bath time was coming, she loves the bath! It's just the dryer her that's an issue. Little madam.

I explained what I wanted done to the staff and they listened, agreeing and smiling away whilst Minnie wrapped herself around their ankles. They definitely made a new friend that day.

Minnie had the full groom package which includes:

Pre bath groom
Warm water bath
Dry
Styling
Ears cleaned
Nails Clipped
Prices in this vary depending on breed, size and condition of coat

I then added on some extras:

Tear stains removed
Teeth Cleaned
Blueberry facial

This cost £46 and was worth every penny.


The Groom Room offer lots of different packages starting from as little as £5 for 3 treatments. You can mix and match too so you can choose what you think your pet would prefer. I knew Minnie would love anything to do with blueberries since they're her favourite snack, especially frozen.

Minnie was so good for The Groom Room staff (I was quite surprised as she's usually a hyper ball of fluff) and made me so proud!

They finished and it was like I had been given a different dog. She was back to her beautiful, clean, white and gorgeous self again. She could see out of her beautiful dark eyes and her ears no longer looked raggy! Her coat was shining white and she smelt divine. We had to get her cut very short as a one off because her coat was in a bit of a mess, her adult curls were coming through and were starting to matt with her puppy fluff.

 


I was so pleased with the service we received at The Groom Room and would highly recommend anyone to check them out.



Of course for being such a good girl, on the way out Minnie got a new toy! So she was a very happy puppy that day, and very spoilt! I'm looking forward to her coat growing back and returning to the groom room to get her beautiful Bichon shape back.



Thank you so much to the Groom Room for making my girl all beautiful and happy again, we will be seeing you again very soon!


Love Chelsea and Minnie x

  5. I looove Minnie. I'm dog crazy and especially toy dogs. I have a teeny tiny chihuahua and though she's smooth haired and doesn't need to be groomed she is always shedding. Bishon's don't shed if I'm correct. Minnie looks marvelous after her groom.

  10. Ohhh she is gorgeous! We have a cavachon so he is very similar to Minnie in his fur but a little king Charles spaniel in there too. He looks like a yeti when he needs his hair cutting. Glad you like this groomer.

  14. Wow she really does look like a different dog after her hair cut, I'm glad you found somewhere that didn't let you down x

  15. Awww what a little cutie she is!! That's so bad that your usual groomer let you down so many times, it's not fair to you and certainly not the dog. Not great for her business too I'd imagine.

  16. Thats just such a cute little puppy. Although I kind of admit that part of me likes the scraggly puppy she was before. I get needing the cut but she looked pretty adorable anyway.
