Georgie, my Yorkie mix, is the 2nd dog that I have trusted to Cleverdog for grooming. Jasmine has groomed first Angie who sadly passed away now Georgie who can be a handful but is putty in Jasmine's hands. She has done an excellent job, the whole grooming environment is positive, professional and they have taken great care of my dogs. Value for money. If you want good service and quality work you pay for it.

My first time taking my dog here. They got so many good reviews on Nextdoor. I don’t know how people can take their pets to this place. I wanted my dog’s nails clipped. Both paws of my dog’s nails were bleeding. They are not supposed to bleed when you cut the nails. My dog cried when she got home from pain. I didn’t like this place based on my first time being here.

Short Version: Dog was bit while boarded at Cleverdog. Staff either intentionally did not let me know or didn’t pay attention enough to notice he was actually bit. Either way I wouldn’t trust my dog in their care ever again. Long Version: I’ve taken my dog here twice, both times for urgent last minute daycare/boarding. First time was fine. Didn’t love that the dogs were separated into groups in different pens. The dog daycare we normally go to let’s all the dogs roam free and my dog seems to enjoy that more. But no big deal otherwise. He was fed and chaperoned so I can’t complain. The second time is why this place gets 1 star from me. I went to pick up my dog around 4:00 PM the day after I had dropped him off. When I did the staff at the front desk notified me that they noticed a “foul odor” coming from my dog’s head behind his ear around 9:00 AM that morning. They said they cleaned it with warm water and isolated him in his own pen so it wouldn’t get worse from playing with other dogs. When I asked how that happened or what it came from, the lady said “Not sure. Maybe it’s from an old scab.” I know I can’t know every part of my dog but I’d know if there was a scab, especially if it was fresh enough to smell bad and show signs of infection. Strike 1. Then I asked why she didn’t call me or my emergency contact if the staff noticed the wound at 9:00 AM. “We thought you were going to pick him up in the morning.” As a reminder, I dropped off my dog under emergency circumstances (emergency hospital visit). I never set any expectation of when I’d come back to get my dog. And when I didn’t show up in the morning, why didn’t you call then? Strike 2. Instead of continuing this conversation, I figured the best thing I could do was go to a vet or at least go home and check this thing out. I go home and start to clean the wound with antiseptic and warm water. Within a few minutes I noticed two very clear, very apparent holes made from teeth. My dog had been bitten. I’m not disillusioned. I know things happen at dog daycare and sometimes it’s just bad luck. But the staff either didn’t even bother to diligently check the wound to discover that or knew about it and decided it was best not to inform me. Strike 3. Nail in the coffin is the fact that I gave them ample opportunity to address this issue with me before posting this review. This incident happens Memorial Day weekend and Ive called and emailed them since. I never got a response. So now I’m posting this review and I’m saying BE CAUTIOUS OF CLEVERDOG. THEY DO NOT SEEM TO CARE ENOUGH TO LET YOU KNOW IF YOUR DOG HAS BEEN HURT WHILE IN THEIR CARE. I certainly won’t be going back.

We used Clever Dog Grooming for the first time and had a good experience. Jasmine did a great job on our Golden's summer cut, and was very professional explaining different cut options to us. Excellent customer service is super important to us and everyone delivered! Thank you.

I highly recommend Clever dog for grooming! The staff are all friendly and it's obvious they care about their four legged clients. Tanya grooms our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. She does an excellent job.

The groomers are great with our Kerry Blue. This breed needs an artist and patience. Clever Dog does a great job.

I was so glad to find them. It was difficult to find someone who wants to groom a standard poodle and knows how to groom a standard poodle correctly. Clever Dogs has kept my boys beautiful. The staff are experts and kind and loving with the dogs. They are not inexpensive, but they are worth it. It takes time to do these big dogs right and it is money well-spent.

The ladies at Cleverdog do such a great job with our "puppy babies." We are never disappointed with their cuts, (they're both Shih Tzu's). The prices are pretty reasonable too, for the quality of their services.

They always take great care of our pup! Our dog is very shy but loves the Cleverdog staff. She gets a little nervous still when we take her to get groomed but the groomers do a great job to make her feel comfortable. And they do a great job with her!

My American Staffordshire Terrier is 79 pounds of energy, cuddles and love. We are very specific about his care as my husband and I wanted a dog that would be good with kids. We recently had a newborn baby and our dog has been AMAZING with the baby, but needs friends and socialization with other dogs. This was his first time playing with multiple dogs at once. I think Clever dogs is EXCEPTIONAL. They welcomed my dog, reviewed his shot records and even called my vet to confirm they were up to date for the ones that were missing. The dogs are in view as soon as you walk into the facility. I stayed for about an hour because I wanted to monitor my dog’s adjustment. They welcomed my presence, were familiar with all the dogs temperament and left him with a group that worked with him. He met his new friends on the leash and as he interacted well with the other dogs, he was taken off the leash. I am very pleased with Clever Dogs and look forward to bringing my dog back for a play date❣️

The groomer (Donna) my family had gone to multiple times never cut my dogs (Golden retriever) fur short enough even though we asked multiple times to cut it shorter in a cheap ploy to get us to come back and spend more money. The first (and last) time I went to pick up my dog she rudely yelled at me that if we ask to have it cut shorter we’ll have to find a mother groomer. I had never met this women in my life and this is how she treated a customer she had never met and who’s dog had routinely come back to get groomed by her. We took her rude advice and went to a different groomer.
