    I called over the phone and was quoted one price. When I arrived there was an overwhelming smell of bleach that I tried to ignore. I figured maybe they had just finished cleaning. When I picked up my doodle she was almost bald and I was charged $30 more than what I was quoted over the phone. Get home to see knicks on her skin from the shaver I guess. I said to myself “sometimes things happen by accident but they could have told me”. Not THIS is where I draw the line: Fast forward the next day my puppy was scratching uncontrollably. Take her to the vet thinking she’s having an allergic reaction to the shampoos they’ve used and the vet tells me she has fleas. My puppy is an indoor dog and does not visit any place besides a groomer and a veterinary clinic for updates on vaccines. I have had her for more than a year and never had this issue before. This place has cost me more money than I expected to put out. If they had an infected dog in there that day they should have closed down to properly clean before resuming business. I really wanted to like them because they are close to my home but now I have to go search for another grooming facility.

    We have been bringing our Winston, a Sheepadoodle, to Pooches and Smooches for over a year now.
    We are extremely grateful for everyone at Pooches and Smooches and the care they give our Winston.
    The owner Stacey is so professional and extremely talented as well as her entire staff. Jessica has been grooming Winston and she has built his confidence with grooming up by her good energy and amazing skill and talent. Our Winston definitely comes home from there in great spirits and has learned to trust being around other people and other dogs. The best over all experience with my doodle, who can be dramatic! Finding a good groomer is such a blessing. Thank you to all!
    PS
    Winston gives y’all a perfect 10

    Stacey and her team are so wonderful! I am definitely coming back here. I walked in with my two dogs the other day who don’t love getting their nails trimmed and aren’t the easiest but that didn’t phase Stacey and her team! They were committed (despite my dogs being a challenge!), patient, and caring. Would highly recommend!!!

    They do a wonderful job. They are also very good at communicating.

    Can never say anything bad about this place! Absolutely love them, their prices, availability, and letting the dogs be free. Will not go anywhere else and I recommend them to everyone! They’re amazing with my babies.

    I took my two huskies here for the first time and was really concerned they would have difficulty grooming them. To my surprise and delight, Pooches and smooches did an amazing job, better than any groomer I’ve taken them to❣My husband was even pleased and had no complaints, which is rare!! They have a forever customer with my fur babies Gypsie and Holly! ???

    Took my car here for his first bath/mail trimming! Staff greeted me, were pleasant and my cat did great I will definitely be back!

  10. Paula Martinez 2023/03

    The last time that I went there, I had bad experience with them.

    I’ve been taking my pup to Pooches & Smooches for about a year now and have never been disappointed by the results! Stacey and her team are patient, professional, and great at listening to what the client wants and executing but also making recommendations based on their expertise as needed. The selfish part of me wishes I could keep them a secret but everyone deserves to have their dog pampered by Stacey and her team!

    I was so terrified to take my baby bean anywhere to get her nails clipped because she can be a little jumpy because she scared. They treated her with the most respect, she fought a little but they responded with such amazing effot. I 100% recommend this establishment!

  14. Alyssa Valentine 2023/01

    Love love love how my pup returns after being groomed here! She looks fabulous every time!

    Best period. Best care. My dog loves them and so do I. Thank you!

    I can’t say enough good things about this groomer! I recently moved here and was in search of a new salon for my Mini Aussie. I tried to take him to a big box store to be groomed, and he was so anxious there that he couldn’t be serviced. I brought him to Pooches and Smooches and not only did they do an AMAZING job on his haircut, but they were also able to handle my dog’s anxiety. He was ready within the time frame that they told me he would be. I have found our new groomer!

    They were friendly, calmed down our dog quickly and did a great job umatting her hair and grooming her.

  19. Tina Remson 2022/09

    My experience with Pooches & Smooches was great! I have an Australian Shepherd and the cut they gave her was just what I described to them. Facility was clean and staff was very friendly. One thing I really liked was that my pet did not have to stay locked up in a grate all day long. I had a set time to drop her off and I received a text about 15 minutes before she was to be ready to be picked up. That received big brownie points with me.

    Stacey is very responsive and always exceeds my expectations. You can tell from the moment you walk in, that she has a passion for what she does. Our dog son loves getting groomed here. They always treat him with the best care. ❤️? …

    Clementine looks great and the staff were very kind and communicative every step of the way.

    They even gave her a ribbon. Looking forward to returning in the future!

    They did an EXCELLENT job on our fur baby! We were very happy!

  24. Ben Evans 2022/03

    They did a fantastic job with our labradoodle Zelda. Highly recommend!

  25. Andrea Berkshire 2022/02

    We get our two Aussies groomed every 6 weeks and love it! They do a fantastic job, send you text reminders, and are super friendly.

  26. Josephine Malaspina 2022/02

    I took Bella my standard poodle there today. I can’t say enough about them. Our previous groomer did not take care of her ears and she showed me how matted and hard the hair was. Set up an appointment for my baby boy to go in two weeks. I can honestly say they are our groomers for life.

    Nice people, they do a great job at reasonable prices.

  28. Elizabeth Sexton 2021/10

    Tried this place after the groomer I used to use became unavailable. Glad I did! They did a fantastic job on my pups.

    I found the level of quality and care for my senior Shih Tzu in alliance with what any pet owner would expect.The skill set of the owner/groomer was beyond my expectations. But more importantly, my dog was wagging his tail with joy when I picked him up after his grooming and first experience with Pooches and Smooches. This displayed the love and care he obviously experienced with Stacey. This is a family owned grooming shop. A small cute and cozy shop, with personalized attention to your pet.The owner and master groomer has complete control over how her shop is run. This includes a shop layout open for all clients to see the dogs as they are being groomed! Full disclosure! That’s rather rare.This mother daughter team greeted me with warmth, leaving me feeling secure about handing over my sweet old man to their care. I HIGHLY recommend this grooming shop. Give them a try! You will be very glad you did.

    Amazingly friendly and very comforting to the dogs everyone you go in there the dogs are calm and when they are done they smell so fresh!!

  31. Saskia Mestraud 2021/07

    Update: Pooches and smooches is under new ownership and I just wanted to add that we still receive the same care. We are very happy and most importantly so is our dog!

    When we first moved here a few years ago we were looking for a groomer that is gentle and kind to our little dog that is not a fan of the groomer. We also wanted someone that does a good job on her haircut. We found just that at Pooches and Smooches.

  32. Brenda Berisha 2021/06

    Didn’t get to go there. She is not taking on any new customers. Going to Dogma instead

  33. Mandy McKinney 2021/06

    Stacey, the Owner, was very responsive and easy to communicate with. After just moving to the area and waiting over a month for another groomer, they cancelled that morning and our Goldendoodles really needed a groom. Stacey got us in that week and did a fantastic job! Our dogs seemed very comfortable and happy when we picked them up. Not only that, but she cut them just how we described, even taking extra care to work on their mats. She did charge an extra de-matting fee for one dog (well deserved) so do be prepared for that if your dog is matted. Would definitely recommend, especially if you have a doodle breed since it can be really hard to find a quality groomer that doesn’t “poodle shave”!

  34. Andrew Blake 2021/03

    Did a stellar job on our two dogs. A big upgrade from Dogma, where we had been going.

  35. Jerome Haywood 2021/02

    These ladies are knowledgeable, friendly and made sure my little man had a great experience at Pooches and Smooches. You can tell that they love what they do. I will definitely be bringing Rocky back!

    Great Mom Daughter team. Wonderful work

  37. Deborah Keyes 2021/02

    lovely staff, i took my 1 1/2 y.o. pup here for the first time after he got into something pretty nasty (really, i almost threw up) and hes good as new and softer than he’s ever been in his life (the softest dog I’ve ever pet, so that’s saying something). they were patient with him and prices were totally reasonable

    Wanda is great and always goes out of her way to accommodate us!!@

  41. Melanie Feldstein 2019/04

    I listened to my dog very carefully
    While I talking to Wanda after grooming my dog went to her for more loving. The next time I took her, she was happy to go back!] Wanda is her groomer from now on.

  42. Kaley Edwards 2019/01

    We love Pooches & Smooches! Wanda is so wonderful! She grooms all three of my dogs. She is very accommodating as well. My youngest dog was a rescue that can be very nervous and Wanda takes such great care of her. Super affordable and reliable!

    Great personalized service.

    Wanda is the best!!
