We have been going to That Dapper Pet ever since we moved to Bloomington in 2015. The quality service is top notch and our dogs are always lovingly cared for when they are there. I recommend this shop all the time to my friends with pets.

Today was my dog Chip’s first visit. First I want to highlight the fact Amy was able to get him in on such short notice and provide me with options rather then turning me away. That alone immediately set the tone for the experience. The customer service in general was outstanding. Everything clearly explained. Education about different add on’s. Keeping me posted on how he was doing. Those small things truly add up and are just a portion of what sets this location apart from other groomers. I have never had my dog look and feel this amazing. He’s been groomed multiple times, but never like this. His coat is so shiny and soft. He smells incredible. I can defiantly tell his hair is not shedding like it would just from a simple pet. But what impacted me the most was how my dog was when i picked him up and upon arriving home. Normally after the groomers he is slightly anxious and it’s almost as if he is mad at me. This was totally different. He was relaxed and just overall seemed happy/refreshed! I am so excited to continue going to That Dapper Pet on a regular basis and I cannot be more thankful Amy was able to squeeze me in which resulted in me finding the perfect groomer for my dog that I would recommend to anyone hands down. Not to mention the tie he came home in!! The cutest thing ever!! I am actually looking forward to bedtime now with how great he smells since he sleeps so close to me.

Horrible experience! Multiple reasons! There are way better groomers that are actually nice to your dogs and appreciate the customer. DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOGS HERE!

We love Dapper Pets. We know that our puppy considers it her second home and is so well cared for. She loves Dapper and the grooming is amazing. Elsa always looks great and always has an extra special touch. She loves our fur baby just as much as we do and we are thankful for such a great place. So check it out and your dog or cat will love it just as much.

That Dapper Pet was suggested by our vet. We are extremely pleased with the quality of grooming and care our pups receive while in the care of That Dapper Pet. One of ours is a big shedder, and TDP does an amazing job helping us have much less fur to clean up at home.

I always know my pups are in great hands with Amy and her team. I have a senior dog that requires special attention as she has arthritis and recently injured her ACL’s, and I would not trust anyone else to care for her. Their breed specific grooming really sets them apart from other groomers. My golden retriever always leaves looking like she’s been pampered and show-ready.

I’ve been a groomer for awhile & a part of the pet industry even longer. I’ve never been in such a warm and welcoming environment until this place. Putting the pets well-being first has always been something I’m passionate about & i even left places that didn’t share the same but Amy is one of the first people I’ve worked for who’s shared the same passion. Also one of the first people I ever felt I could genuinely trust with my own pets (they are my babies). I love working here and getting to see all the love and heart that can be a part of the grooming experience. Getting to work with your pets and provide the knowledge that I know to help is something that will always warm my heart. I finally found a place and crew I could whole heartedly be proud to work for.

Amy and her crew are the best! You won't find a better team to care for your pets here in town.

People of Bloomington-Normal, if you're not coming to That Dapper Pet for your pets grooming needs, then I'm not sure if you're going to a groomer. Amy and her staff have definitely set the bar high for the grooming industry here locally. I encourage anyone who is in search of a great groomer to seriously consider That Dapper Pet. Today was the second time I've taken my puppy to see Amy so she can get fixed up for the holidays and let me tell ya, my puppy has never looked or smelled better! Not to mention, she was all wiggles and smiles when I got her home!! Before choosing That Dapper Pet, I spent an exorbitant amount of time researching the other local groomers, gathering suggestions from friends and family and even scrolling through all the reviews left on here by other customers of each groomer. The best reviews and the most genuine reviews were found right here for That Dapper Pet. Gotta say, with Riley being my first dog, I was very skeptical of leaving her here for the first appointment even despite the raving reviews. I knew the day would eventually come but I prolonged it as much as possible by frequent bathing and combing of my puppy. For those of you who are aussie owners, you know what I'm dealing with. Being a little overprotective has always been my nature so letting her go was not easy at first. I even brought her favorite treats the first time around but to my knowledge, they were not needed. For those of you who still aren't convinced, listen up; the detailed facts are ahead. Upon walking in, you'll notice the first obstacle you approach is a gate just inside the door; a sort of corral if you will. Right off the bat, I knew this was going to be great. This immediately told owners hey, were concerned for your safety as well as your pets. This keeps the pets separated while walking in while also allowing you to usher your pets through an open door all the while blocking those on the inside from darting out to the busy street. These are the detail that truly count. The store front is tastefully stocked with treats, products and accessories that are sure to be a cut about average. The retail area is incredibly clean and well maintained - a great indicator to an organized and customer-oriented business. A full list of their grooming services can be found on the wall just behind the counter. Additionally, if you can't make it back as soon as your pet is ready, no need to worry! That Dapper Pet has a fun little play area to keep the pets entertained while they wait! This is definitely a great perk. Amy greeted me for the first appointment and we spoke on a high level regarding Riley's history of groomers, health and concerns upfront so she knew what she was getting into. After checking my puppy in, Amy came around and approached my puppy with care and caution as every knowledgeable dog lover does. After a few hours, I returned to get my puppy and she looked GREAT!! Aside from that, she was all smiles and fun-loving the whole rest of the day. That reaction said it all to me; I've found my groomer. In summary, That Dapper Pet can really do it all. Amy and her staff are genuine, competent people that have truly established an elite grooming facility. They've been able to take my challenging, hairy dog and style her up to be one of the best cut dogs in town (in my opinion anyway ????). The way my dog looks and acts when I get her tells me shes been spoiled in her time there. I really can't say enough good things about Amy and her staff there. I know Riley will be looking forward to her next visit. Keep up the great work there guys!

My dog is in the best hands with Amy and her crew! I got a Goldendoodle as they are low shedding, but I never realized how high maintenance his coat would be! Amy has helped to keep his coat long, fluffy, tangle-free and in the cut we love with regular grooming and brushing. Without her professional help, he'd be shaved all the time! Amy takes the time to teach you how to care for your pets at home, with great tips on techniques to use and the right tools for each pet. Not only is Amy a gifted groomer, she genuinely cares for our dog as if he were her own. Cosmo is always happy to see Amy for a spa day and play with the other pups at daycare. His excitement and complete lack of anxiety about going to the groomer speaks volumes about the excellent care he gets at That Dapper Pet.

One of the greatest things about this pet shop, is that it has an amazing staff that treats your pets like gold, but has healthy food and accessories you can buy all at once while you’re inside the shop. …

Great service! They texted notifications for my dog's nail trim appointments. They were very friendly and recommended local business in the area for while I waited. The trim and file was the best we've had yet for our pups!

I won't take my pooch anywhere else. Amy is the BEST! My dog has never liked being groomed at all, and gets snappy with people, but not at That Dapper Pet. They've always been helpful and very friendly. I always recommend them to everyone I know. Also, I drive all the way over from Washington just for the quality of service I always get there.

Took my daughter's Morkie to be groomed here 1st time. My daughter flying home to get her puppy and they were able to squeeze us in. Best haircut, staff very friendly. I was called for update on my haircut request because she had some matting which required to cut a little shorter but still turned out better than I expected. They did not lock her in cage while waiting. Store is clean and cute. Did not feel rushed dropping her off. Price very reasonable. Highly recommend That Dapper Pet!

Really friendly staff and very flexible. I have a horrible schedule and they always find a way to fit my 2 cats. I have tried many times to trim my cat and it always ends in blood (don’t worry, it is mine) and cursing. Having such a great place so close to home that actually knows how to handle this is great!

I have been bringing my fur-babies to That Dapper Pet for baths and nail trims. The staff is professional, and welcoming. I love the shop - lots of great specialty pet items. But mostly I love knowing my pups will be safe, and cared for, and come home happy and smelling lovely. -Stacy Ash, Heartland Doulas owner

I took my newly rescued Mini-Pincer there the day after I just stopped in one day while I was walking downtown. A nice warm receptive atmosphere. The staff made me feel very comfortable with leaving my new dog with them. He came out looking all shining and new! He was happy and so was I! I wouldn't go anywhere else now. FYI - they have all kinds of very high quality items for your dog too! Check it out... you will not be disappointed!
