Best in Show Dog Grooming Informative - Beware Of This Groomer!!!!!
18470 US HWY 41 N LUTZ FLORIDA, FLORIDA -- I hope to warn others to be very, very aware of the situation that we faced when we took our standard poodle to the owner of Best in Show Dog Grooming to be groomed in July of this year, 2009. He came home with gashes and open sores that were oozing and pus-filled all over the back of his head and neck. We counted dozens of these gashes on his head and neck that we are now told were probably caused by the owner being too hard on him while using the mat breaker tool to remove any matting. The sores were large, similar to the size of small peas. It was a sight that horrified us to say the least. The owner said she would pay for the veterinary bills that were being incurred to treat the infections and damages that were caused to our dog during the grooming she performed.
To this day October 27th after many letters, return receipt to boot, we have heard nothing from her. We have had to pay nearly $250 in vet bills, plus the cost of her grooming which had to be fixed as well as his coat wasn't cut evenly on all four legs. We had to wait until the sores healed until he could have his coat recut so not only is he miserable and in pain, but his grooming looked quite poor on top of this already terrible experience. If you need grooming services, please check elsewhere! This is isn't the 'best' place to go at all. They are not professional and they most certainly don't keep their word. I suppose I still thought some people went by their word. Probably a lesson for me to learn that they don't.
