Leslie is wonderful; our dog doesn’t like many people, and he likes her! And she always makes him look gorgeous.

I've brought my dog here to get washed for two years, and I've never had a problem. The last two times were a different story. On each occasion, I got my dog back still wet all over and not particularly clean smelling. She was still shedding hair, too. I had two years of appointments where I got her back dry, and smelling fresh so it definitely struck me as odd. More importantly, two days after my latest two appointments, my dog was in widespread pain. She became lethargic, was constantly panting and would flinch everytime she was touched. Before I realized what was going on, I tried to pet her to comfort her causing her let out a horrible yelp. She even whipped around and almost bit me - something she has NEVER done. Her skin was obviously causing her pain. The first time I chalked it up to coincidence that she became ill right after coming here, but after the second time I'm convinced it's related to the wash. I don't know if it's different products or difference in technique by new groomers. Regardless, I cannot subject my dog to the trauma of being washed here again. :(

Excellent service, fast and very professional! Easy to schedule (had to wait for the next available day, but its understandable), received a reminder notification and was accepted as soon as we arrived. Very friendly and professional staff, definitely coming back. Thank you! ????????

I said yeah and I made an appointment she’s like oh no that’s two weeks from now I know it wasn’t for two weeks from now. There’s just that an organized in the crazy way that she looked at me this place is terrible do not take your dogs there

They’re quick and do a great job! Reasonable prices and they take care of my pups while in their care. Kim does a phenomenal job with our little fur babies.

Hello. Dirty Paws will remain open, unfortunately self wash is closed for now. Still taking in bath and haircut appointments though! Hours are Tuesday-Saturday 9am-3pm and Sunday 10am-3pm. Thank you !

It would be easier if they had a walk up instead of stairs. My dog is 1 and arthritic so she had to be lifted into the tub. We went there because we can't lift her in to our home tub. Otherwise I give this place 5 stars. The staff are very helpful.

Pice isn't too bad, they get my dogs hair cut perfect everytime! I love how my dog isn't scared to go there and the staff is friendly. I went to a place closer to my home and the quality didn't come close to Dirty Paws.

Very disappointed as I scheduled an appointment almost a week ago and when i got there i was told " you are not in the books". I was not even offered to reschedule or anything to remedy the situation that someone dropped the ball. Most likely will not go there again.

I've been coming here for years. I love the staff, the prices, the services and most importantly (at least to me) is how they interact/treat the pups. Any place can wash your dog, but to care for them while they do it is more important to me!! Just dropped off the two newest additon to my family with them. With Sparta having passed a while back, it took me a while but I've adopted a loving pair of pups. They're having there first bath, and grooming now. From the minute they were brought in they were held and comforted. Thank you for all you do!

We've been coming here for a while, we took our last husky and now our newest member which is another husky. Extremely nice customer service. You can wash and dry your dog yourself they have everything. Aprons, products, air dryers and even perfume all for 15 bucks or you can have them clean your dog for more. They also cut hair and nails. Highly recommend.

I've been coming here for quite a few years and I do both self wash and have my dogs groomed and the experience is always great! Self wash prices are great when you don't want to mess your house up. And the grooming service is well priced. All the groomers really seem to care about your pets.

Trimmed our cats nails. We did not know how she would react to other animals and other people. They did a great job quickly and efficiently. Really nice people. Did a good job. Highly recommended.

I took my "bear" shiba inu there first time. It was the best groomer I've ever took my bear to! Ashley was very comforting and positive which made my grooming experience exceeds all my expectations! We found a groomer for life as long as ashley is there! #blessings

This place is GREAT!! Everything you need to give your dog a bath, nails trimmed and you don't have to worry about cleaning up your bathroom tub. Staff are friendly and totally understand unruly oversized dogs like mine.

Great facilities, and very nice and helpful staff. My dog hates baths but the way dirty paws us set up, it makes it easier in and out. I love the discount on Tuesday for self bathers and it still counts towards the tenth bath free. Great place!
