This groomer could not be more kind, this is why you will find nothing but polarized reviews about her business. There is no input that says "I had a bad experience" or "unsatisfactory", it seems to be a group of emotionally charged slanderous fools who continue referencing "they saw it on video". If this video existed, It would most likely replace their intellectually numbing commentary. Rather then rely on their fear mongoring hear say, I would like to provide a story about my own experience with Christine at St James Dog Groomning.
I brought my dog to St James dog grooming at the last minute a few days before Thanksgiving. I had a lot of family coming over and I was nervous because my previous dog groomer proved to be unreliable. That's a whole different story, but when I came into St James dog grooming, I was surprised but shocked. The layout was unlike most dog groomers which rely on kennels and force. The dogs were freely roaming in a nice facility and seemed to be playing harmoniously. Unfortunately the place was loaded with Dogs and I assumed there would be no possible way that my dog could be fit into her very busy schedule. Shockingly enough, she agreed that I could leave Buster (my dog :)) for a few hours, and that they would get to him if they had enough time. I came back a few hours later expecting the typical hysterical panic that I was used to from Buster, but he actually was more distracted playing with a German Shepard. Believe it or not, they did get to him! and he looked fantastic! My thanksgiving went more elegantly then usual. My family didn't even believe it was the same dog!
Sorry I gave my whole life story, but i didn't feel right reading the above mindless comments without sharing my personal firsthand experience.This is the best groomer on Long Island, and I have been to many. Don't be frightened by people who admit that they have no firsthand experience with this groomer, Their "videos" would be much more powerful then their empty words. Bring your dog to this groomer and make this decision for yourself, you won't be dissappointed, and your dog will most certainly thank you.

The only place to go! – 06/09/11: 'THE only place to go'
I usally don't dont feel like I have to do a review about most places, But Christine and her team are right on the money. The new loaction is great! So much Pet friendly right accross the street!
The Staff is wonderful and Christine will always be there to take care of your needs. OMG! They are so loving and Pookie was just beautiful after his makeover, they are sooooo nice!
Avoid!!!! – I myself witnessed the owner of St. James Dog Grooming abusing doggie clients. I was actually friends with this woman and decided I no longer wanted to be associated with such an individual after witnessing her drop kick a 4lb 14 year old pom. I am glad someone had the courage to stand up and let the community know what this woman was doing. I would have done it myself but my family and I have been harrassed by this individual for almost two years after I terminated our friendship. There are many groomers out there who love dogs and are well worth going to. I wouldn't let Christine put a bow on a stuffed dog.
Avoid this groomer – my dog was the "abused" by St. James Dog Grooming. I witnessed it on video. Please avoid this groomer. There are plenty of them out there that will NOT abuse your pet. She is not a stable person and is a liar and manipulates the situation. She also makes prank phone calls. Do yourself a favor and stay away.
