Posh pets has new owners and management. – Please visit our new location at 6394 Far Hills Avenue in Centerville. We are under new management with new owners. We still have our same wonderful groomers, Alicia, Marci, Mealie and Barb. We would love to show you around.
Bad feeling... – I walk in to pick up my dog and some poor dog (I swore it was mine) is screaming in the back area. I must have looked concerned so the rude lady at front desk tells me, obviously unconcerned, oh its just so and so and he hates to be groomed. Well it sounded like it didnt just hate it it sounded like it was being hurt. It didn't stop the entire time I was there what could they have possibly been doing??? No wonder my dog about bolted when I tried to walk through the door. I just have a bad feeling about this place...didnt like the atmospheare at all. I'll go somewhere else next time.
Owner rude serivce horrible – The owner gets on the phone to call another customer before she can finish with you and then you have to wait, my dog came home wth mats under the arm pit, weasked for him to be cut short but no they did not do that, what about the charges for extra for half an hour after they call me to pick my dog up. Dogs are yelping, someone should have humane society visit there, I will never go back there.
DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG TO POSH PETS! – I agree with RiverWatson's review. I had a similar experience when my dog developed kennel cough and an eye infection a week after he had been groomed at Posh Pets. My dog hadn't been exposed to any other dogs, there was no way he had become sick from any other place other than Posh Pets. The veterinarian told me it is highly contagious and dogs can get it from contaminated surfaces as well as infected dogs. My first concern was to warn Gail the owner that my dog had gotten sick at her business in order to prevent other dogs from getting sick. I had not mentioned wanting to get my vet bills paid---nothing and she quickly became defensive and rude. She said the veterinarian was wrong about the incubation period and my dog didn't get sick at her place. My dog got sick within a week of going to Posh Pets. The incubation period for kennel cough is 5-14 days. I found it amusing that Gail thinks that she is qualified to say that the vet doesn't know what they're talking about! Oddly enough, after I spoke with her regarding the issue, someone from her front desk staff kept calling me trying to get more information about the situaion. I told them if Gail wants more info she could call me back which she never did. What's sad is that I actually thought she would be concerned by the fact that my dog got a highly infectious disease from her business being that she risked other dogs being sick.
I would not bring my pet to be groomed here because either it's unsanitary and my dog got sick from an infected cage or tools OR she is putting pets who are being groomed mixed in the back with the daycare pets who are more likely to have infectious diseases. Either way, I wouldn't bring my pet here because she is rude and unprofessional. It's not worth risking having to spend $200 to take your pet to the vet.
WARNING: HARMFUL! HORRIBLE! UNPROFESSIONAL! – My dog's paws were bleeding after his visit to Posh Pets. I had to take him to the vet. His veterinarian told me it looked as though the skin on the pads of his paws was shaved off with clippers. Posh Pets did not reimburse us for the injuries, the cost of my dog's treatment (almost $100)- they didn't even refund the cost of grooming. We didn't even get an apology. The owner (and coincidentally the groomer who injured my dog), Gail, was VERY defensive and rude when we called to tell her what she had done. She told us that our veterinarian "did not know grooming" and made it very clear that she would not reimburse us for the vet bills. We never asked her to, nor had we even *mentioned* money at the point in the conversation. I am shocked and appalled at the way we were treated after what she did to my dog. We will never do business with Gail or Posh Pets again.
Whatever your budget allows, your money is best spent here! – I've never met a more talented, skilled and knowledgeable individual when it comes to the love and care for animals. A truer professional, and a more exceptionally gifted person you will not find. Gail Morabito is the elite in her field and expertise. I recommend her exclusively. I know times may be tough right now for all of us, but whatever your budget will allow, your money is best spent here. I have a black standard poodle named JC's Morning Glory Serenade, and he is always perfect, and gorgeous because of her.
Best Grooming Shop Around! – I love this place its nice and clean,very professional everyones very friendly. My dog turns out perfect everytime. They have competitive pricing and free coffee! I definitely recommend this place too everyone I know.
