My dog loved his spa experience so much that he kept closing his eyes and leaning into it. When he came out he was super happy and his coat was beautifully groomed, his nails were neatly manicured, and he smelled amazing. Anthony was so good with my pup and sent updates and photos throughout the grooming session to keep me informed. Love that my pup came out wearing a cute seasonal bandana and grinning from ear to ear. We will definitely be back!

My experience with Masterpiece was wonderful from start to finish. My large, older fluffy Alaskan Malamute/Great Pyrenees looks years younger and at least 5 lbs lighter! And she was happy as a clam. Rachel was so communicative and got us in for an appointment quickly! Smooth process for pick up and drop off and reasonable prices for the quality of work! Looking forward to bringing my dog Rory here regularly and trust that Rachel and her crew will always handle her with the best care.

Masterpiece, the owner and employees are unprofessional, rude, and disrespectful to its patrons. More importantly, their grooming services are overrated and overpriced. Safe your earned cash, you will not enjoy the service, and neither will your pet. Today I had a grooming service for my dog. Due to unforeseen circumstances (thunderstorm and rain, which my pet dislikes immensely), I was running late and received a call from Masterpiece, and was rudely told that if I could not arrive within 15 minutes of my appointment, I needed to turn around and will get charged for the total amount. No matter how nicely I pleaded that the owner resorts to the business backup protocol to give my dog a trim, it was refused without an explanation. Remember I reserved and paid for 2 hours, and my dog was refused. This is unprofessional, distasteful, and outrageous. At the end of the day, as an owner of a dog and a business person, I fully expect that my dog and I are treated professionally and compassionately. The treatment I received was unexpected and surprising for a retail business and pet grooming service provider. Do yourself and other owners a favor by not using their service. The groomers are a hit and miss; sometimes, you get good grooming, but more often, your pet receives a less than satisfactory grooming, and if you return for a grooming correction, you are discouraged. I will never return and let everyone in the neighborhood know how unprofessional this business, owner, and employees act.

Our goldendoodle and standard poodle always look amazing after their grooms at masterpiece. We always get compliments and get asked where they go! Staff is very communicative and professional. The best grooming place in DMV and I’ve been to many.

I can't recommend Masterpiece Canine Spa enough for nervous animals. My pit mix has brittle nails that crack if we cut them, so she gets a bath and a mani-pedi with Anthony every month to make sure that she isn't in pain walking on overgrown or split nails. My dog doesn't do great with other dogs, so the one on one attention that she gets at Masterpiece really puts my mind at ease. When I originally called to set up an appointment, they matched me with Anthony specifically because he has a pit mix of his own and is an expert in working with my dog's unique temperament. We got into grooming right at the beginning of the pandemic, and this has been he one space where I don't have to be afraid leaving my anxious dog in someone else's care. Management is responsive and flexible. They communicate efficiently via email/text/phone, and appointments run on time and are over within the expected time frame. My dog always has a gigantic smile on her face when she's leaving the groomer, and it's clear that Anthony loves her as much as she loves him. To put into perspective how much we appreciate Masterpiece, my husband and I moved to Arlington and we still drive into Capitol Hill/H St once a month for grooming because it is worth it for the peace of mind and quality of service.

Overall we really like it! Our dog is really scared of grooming but he seems less nervous at this place, he always comes out looking really great. Before covid, they let you wait for your dog...which I appreciate. The only thing is they have a really strict late policy and they don't budge on this. I've only been late once and it was totally by accident because I'd gotten a new phone that I didn't know how to use and didn't see the notifications come in. I felt really bad, but I get it. Their space is super small. They're more expensive than your average groomer too. If you have a finicky and sensitive dog I think it's worth checking out!

They treat my doodle with the utmost care and always do everything they can to fit us in. The staff is very attentive and responsive to inquiries via phone call or text. I am so impressed with the services we have gotten here and my puppy just loves going in for his spa treatments and haircuts. Thank you!

1st Visit: Loved Masterpiece! They did amazing with Balto's puppy cut and we are for sure booking again! 2nd Visit: Super professional and they did an amazing job getting my pup ready for summer. Would highly recommend going to get a summer cut here for doodles.

One of the best places to get your dog groomed in the city! It's gotten quite a bit busier (particularly with all the pandemic puppy adoptions!), so expect to have your reservation be 3+ weeks out.

Yet another excellent experience with Rachel and the team. They were able to fit our dog in for a bath, took great care of her, and had her soft as can be!

My dog has been very difficult at the groomers for the last yearish but had a great Masterpiece experience. I am excited to bring him to his next appointment!

Excellent across the board! We extremely satisfied with our visit for our Bentley yesterday. Great communication and reminders. Extremely responsive via phone and text. Very timely, and Bentley was in and out within an hour. That's just unheard of for us and we were really happy to see the great job they did for him. Thank you a million times more.

I have finally found a canine spa that has good vibrations, quality customer service and excellent cutting artists. My little Na'vi looks like a beautiful boy. The way I have always wanted him to look. Sometimes you have to search until you find what you are looking for in DC.

I took my dog in for a groom last week. Abby and her team were easy to schedule with, were responsive and did a GREAT job. I liked that they notified me when my dog was almost ready. The pricing is pretty comparable to other salons in the area. The service is top notch though and you can tell Abby really takes pride in what she does. My dog looks great! We will come back soon.

I love this place! They really care about the pups and they are crate free. The turn around is really quick. Because they don’t have a lot of space, they will text or call and ask you to pick up your furry friend as soon as possible when they’re done... so you can’t drop them off and go too far. My dog always smells so good, and the shed-free treatment they use is really good and lasts a good week or so. They also are just really friendly and easy-going. You can see all the grooming happen right when you walk in. I highly recommend!

Extremely disappointed. The job didn’t get done and to make it worse, my dog is now very very ugly. I still love her, but never again will I bring her back here.

Absolutely recommend for several reasons. (1) Staff are awesome, professional, and just really great with my bulldog (Barbie). (2) The owners created a great system that staggers appointments so that dogs aren’t kenneled and so that they can concentrate on each doggie client. (3) They are a locally owned small business so yay for that! (4) Barbie loves being pampered here versus being a nervous wreck after a Petco grooming appointment. (5) Prices are very reasonable as well!

Absolutely perfect. My dog can be a little "difficult" but Anthony does wonders.

They are so lovely and kind! Completely worth the money. We have been taking our pup here since we got her. She is a rescue who is pretty guarded and reactive with other dogs and they have always worked to make her (and us) feel completely safe and confident. They recently had her in same day for a paw issue and didn't even charge us for the consultation. Sweet, Competent, Thorough!

I'm so happy I found Masterpiece Canine Spa! I took my lab there today for the first time. She was in and out in 45 minutes (she only needs a bath and brush). Prior to the appointment, I got a detailed text with drop-off and COVID-precautions procedures. Same with pickup. It couldn't have been easier. The best part is that Masterpiece grooms your animal from start to finish, so the dogs aren't waiting for hours in between phases of grooming or sitting in a crate for a blow dry. At pick up, I got a report about how my pup did. I'm a big fan! Thank you!

Masterpiece Canine Spa is the best! We've loved taking our dogs here since they've opened, and the pups always come away looking lovely (and smelling even better!) When our dog passed away, the owner Abby sent the most thoughtful gift of a small painting of our pup, which we will cherish forever. Highly recommend this wonderful place for your dog grooming needs!

I’m so glad I found Masterpiece. My dog used to be terrified of grooming and I used to be equally horrified by what she’d look like when I picked her up from past groomers. But Abby and her team really take care of their customers. She is extremely communicative which makes the process seamless, and my goldendoodle looks amazing every time.

I love Masterpiece and it's people! I have an unsocialized puppy because of all the covid stuff happening. This was her first time getting a bath and nails trimmed at a saloon. She was definitely nervous at the beginning but Rachel informed me, via text during the appointment, that she had calmed down and was doing well! That eased my mind! And I'm so thankful that they really care about the dogs feelings too! The car pick up and drop off was super easy and I'm happy to know everyone is able to stay safe and healthy! Thank you!!!
