Charlie aka Chuck is our rescued Beagle Hound. He’s the most laid back dog on the planet until you open the back door and then it’s like he’s drank a gallon of energy drinks and off he goes into the woods to chase deer and squirrels and all the other animals that’s hell never ever catch. I do have to admire his persistence though. OR when it’s time for a trip to the vet or the groomer. Then he tucks tail and becomes a nervous Norman.
You can see he was thrilled when I told him it was time to go for some doggie salon services. But it was desperately needed. DESPERATELY. You see he doesn’t really care much for baths so I’m not the best about it. I know, the shame. They recently opened a brand spanking new Petco near my house and we were serendipitously offered the opportunity to try out their grooming services. I practically heard the choir singing.
I’ve shopped at Petco before, pet food, toys and the like but had not used their grooming services. Actually it never really registered to me that they offered those services so this was a nice little eye opener that they offered these services.
I made the appointment for first thing in the morning when the store opened. Chuck was REALLY nervous and the groomer was incredibly patient and kind. She introduced herself, bent down and gave Chuck a once over, part of their 7 point check system.
- 3 Teeth Check that teeth and mouth are clean, shiny, and unbroken
- 4 Nose Moist and uncracked
- 5 Under-side Shiny, healthy, and unmatted coat
- 6 Skin & Coat Shiny, healthy, and unmatted coat
- 7 Nails & Pads Shiny, healthy nails; moist, uncracked pads
Note: The 7-point Pet Care Check is not a substitute for regular examinations and care from a licensed veterinarian.
Then she let me know that it would be approximately one to one and half hours and that they would call me when he was done. Off they went. True to their word they contacted me an hour and a half later and I went to pick up our little regal Beagle.
He was happy, squeaky clean and smelled amazing. The groomer presented me with his written check point and a little baggie of treats. How cute right?
All in all, it was a seamless and painless experience with Petco Grooming, all the way from making the appointment to dropping off and picking up. We’ll definitely be back!
