Worst groomer! What a joke, I wish I had read the reviews before I took my dog here. First of all the place smells awful, smells like cat urine, it's overwhelming. Second, I asked for a bath and brush, they shaved her! She is a Saint Bernard mix, you don't shave dogs with that type of coat in the winter, in freaking Truckee. They are unbelievably stupid people. I usually take her to petco where they do a fantastic job, and remember her every time. I thought that this time I would "keep it local", stupid me. I dropped her off at 9:30 and and when I picked her up at 2:30 she was shaved. They said she had too many matts which was total bull, I get her groomed on a regular basis and she had no more mats than she ever has. If she had so many mats they felt she needed a complete shave they should at least call the owner and make sure its ok first! The shave job itself is super crappy. If I had a dog that needed shaving, I would have been bummed anyway. It's all uneven, and you can see weird lines where the hair is really short. AND to top it off she cut one of my dogs nails too short and it was bleeding for hours.
An amazing school! – I came to Mickey's School of Grooming with no money, no job, and I was on the verge of losing my house. For some odd reason Mickey's chose to give me a chance and financed my tuition to become a groomer. I completed the 24 A.K.C. (American Kennel Club) standards of grooming courses in 2 weeks, and became a paid groomer. I am now the Assistant Manager of the Truckee Store. I am very appreciative of Mickey's for this vocational training that teaches gentle and caring grooming. I look forward to the next two years of my contract to train others in my past position of unemployment. Before Mickey's I had odd jobs, without the love and respect that all our pets give us. Now I can honestly say I have a great future ahead of me. Thank you Mickey's!!!!!!!!!!!!
Best Pet Groomer in Truckee! – I have been taking my precious pup to Mickey's for a few years and I am AMAZED by how well they do their jobs. My pup runs into the shop because she loves, loves, loves all the attention. The shop is warm and welcoming. Mike and Rosemary run a first rate operation. Even cats are comfortable ... (can you imagine?) I will never take my dog anywhere else. The cuts and shampoos are totally SWANK! I've got the prettiest dog in town.
Kim, all of our donors are friends, that is why we have been in business for 27 years.
I am a student at Mickey's – Hello my name is Pam, I am a student at Mickey.s School of Grooming. I was unemployed for over 3 years, when I came into the school, I was applying for a job, but Rosemary explained that we are only interested in teaching grooming and want someone that wants a career. They gave me a work study student loan so I can earn money and learn grooming. I do have to pay back the loan but Mickey's has already offered me a job, full time, as a groomer/manager. Thank god for Mickey's they saved my life and gave me back my self respect.
Liars – Mickeys was a poor excuse for a school. I really wanted to learn to groom dogs. They handed me a clipper my first day. WOW! you think they would have shown me how to use it first. But money is the object with Mickey's.
I don't know how to groom and won't get my deposit back! Please anyone reading this do your homework they are con artists an feed on peoples dreams and those who have nothing else especially jobs. You become their slaves you work they get paid. 501 non profit on paper but you see nothing and get nothing
As a student here, who refused to pay her tuition and finished over 95% of the course, and is now making a living by what Mickey's taught you, because we asked you to pay the balance of your tuition when due.. You were a student and have no idea what you are talking about. Mickey's is a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit we do not make a profit. Meaning no profit and Mickey's depends on students tuition to be paid, Donors donations, and grants. Mickey's has worked with California One Stop, and the California Vocational Rehabilitation agency to train displaced workers in new careers and the disabled. with grants and has over 27 years experience in this field. We are regulated by animal control and would be shut down if Mickeys was filthy and cut and hurt animals A school means we have students over seen by teachers in grooming. You have caused a policy changes in tuition payments by future students that cannot attend now. Your the bad apple that spoiled the barrel.
Incompetent and unethical – I had a terrible experience here with my dog. The groomer clipped his nails down below the quick, applied a product to stop the bleeding, and didn't tell me that it had happened. When we got home and walked inside my dog tracked blood across the living room, which is when I realized how short his nails had been cut. I called Mickey's and they were belligerent, denying that it had happened. After several minutes attempting to deny the event the groomer abruptly changed his story and admitted that he'd cut the nails too short and caused bleeding. They refused to apologize, stating that "this just happens" and that "we usually tell the owners, but not always." They may be capable of giving your dog a bath - I wouldn't trust their ethics or technical abilities to handle anything else.
Mickey's does not deny the story, you came in at closing, and I showed you the grill that your pets feet got stuck in when he was being bathed. because his nails were to long, that is when you nagged your coat on the door jam. What any groomer puts on is sytic power to stop the bleeding, this happens when the nails are never trimmed, and become to long. The good news is that the quick will shrink, for the next trimming.
Bait and Switch then yell at your dog – Yeah, prices look reasonable for services... until you return to pick up your dog and they've doubled the cost because, "it took us over an hour to wash and brush your dog."
So what? You don't offer services by the hour... you offer a price to wash and a price to brush. We agreed, now you want to double your rates after the fact without even calling and asking? By the way... I'm right here in your store, so stop yelling at my dog in the back wash room because you're trying to chat with your friend while my dog barks because he saw me.
Mickey's must not realize this is a small town.
Mickey's has been in this town for over 26 years, and started the pet industry in this small town. Bait and Switch, We find ticks, lice, hot spots, sores, bleeding from dry skin , under these matts. The pet's health is number one at Mickey's. Mickey's does try to contact the owner. All of our customers are our friends. If your dog was in our wash room, which is in the front not the back, the pet was not done. Also put your name next time on your review. Thank You Rosemary Mickey
