Petco Groomers Are Incompetent

I had my baby girl groomed at Petco a few days ago. I should have waited to get her into her usual groomers hand, however she is a Brussels Griffon and her hair was way overgrown. Living in CT you know it has been brutally hot. What a mistake. I picked her up not thinking much of it other than she was feeling cooler. When I got her home, she wanted belly rubs and I noticed not 1 not 2 but three razor burns. Fortunately, the wounds are treatable, however; I am pissed! How dare they put my baby girl in the hands of incompetent groomers. I am never going back there ever again. I suggest anyone reading this do the same. I called the corporate office (so the internet says) of course I reached India who assured me the complaint was going to the General Manager and she will call me. We'll see how long it will take for them to take this seriously. Sincerely, Pissed Off Big Time!

Sanitary shaves have to be close to keep dogs from getting *** and stuff in their fur some dogs are prone to razor burn.

Razor burns can happen sometimes, its has nothing to do with the owner being neglectful at all. Its like when men shave sometimes some men have more sensitive skin than others.

Same with dogs.

I would tell the NEXT groomer you go to that she gets razor burn easy and not to shave to close to the skin. Maybe even request a hypo conditioner that will help sooth her skin to help prevent it.

Amen to the previous poster.

Take your high and mighty *** opninion and shove it up your ***. Maybe you should be reported for animal abuse because " Baby Girl " can't pick an owner that will actually take care of her.

BTW- Breed name dropping doesn't impress anyone except the fools who don't know any better.

Wow, you're an ***, razor burns are so insignificant... You are the reason your dog got razor burns, not the groomers if you hadn't allowed your dog's coat to get so out of control (and I see this all the time, people bring in their matted, gross looking big hair dogs expecting miracles) then there would have been no razor burns.

Use some hotspot spray you incompetent pet parent.

Petco in Rochester, New York - Omg... I know...

Petco is by far the worst company in the U.S. to work for and it's sad and scarey because it's huge! Powered by money mind you ... not reputation! I can't even talk about it it's so bad. Contact me if you can help me with honest information... I know I have a lawsuit (or three)! Have you seen things like animal abuse... unfair firing of employees because they talked about it... firing of employees because they were accussed of unfair behavior... sexual orientation and/ or sexual harrassment? I'm not kidding about this and I have proof!

We recently took our corgi in for a routine bath and grooming. I was told the charge would be around $25.00; the young lady then told me that was a mistake and that the charge would be $44.00. I told her I only paid $28 a couple of months ago and that included a trim...

I just wanted to take my dogs in to get their nail trimmed and ground down and can't get a price anywhere!?!? That is a basic service wouldn't it be a set price?

Petco in Appleton, Wisconsin - Leonard green and associate's evil company

i was an employee for 7 years the first 3 and a half years were great until leonard green and associate bought petco out. we had an exceptional great grooming crew we were 9th in the nation for sales and a very loyal clientel.the corperate bullies drove us all out. they don't care about there employees nor there customers only the mighty dollar. if you want to find a good groomer get referls from a vet. and if you have a complaint e-mail jimm@petco.com or sherriw@petco.com they are truely an evil company. i'm so glad to have left!

Petco more than once has advertized a product that they do not even have in stock at the store. When I call, I am told they do have the product. I drive the 90 miles just to go to the closest Petco, to find I was lied to and they are all out. Then the employee tries...

@John

You are a ***!!! You don't know anything about dogs or cats. I don't even understand why you're looking at comments about petco if you don't even own any pets. Why do you even care? No one NEEDS a pet, but alot of people WANT them because they do enjoy their companionship and love.

Dogs and cats don't need "gourmet" food, but they do need and deserve the proper nutrition provided by the more expensive formulas. You usually get what you pay for. The cheap food is mostly corn, wheat, soy, and very little animal protein. If you knew ANYTHING about dogs and cats (which you obviously don't) you would know that their natural diet consists of mostly animal protein and quality fruits and vegetables. Read the labels on the cheap food and compare to your so-called "gourmet" food and you should understand what you are paying for.

*Sidenote- when you feed the cheap food you have to feed 2 to 3 times as much to get the same amought of nutrition and calories as the more expensive forumulas because dogs and cats can't properly digest corn, soy, and wheat. So in the long run, it doesn't save any money by buying the cheap stuff but it will give your pets really bad gas!

I hope you pursued this.. That's not right.. They count on people not wanting to bother so they get away with stuff like this.

Petco in Kapolei Hi

petco in kapolei hawaii is terrible. the groomers are inexperienced and do shody choppy cuts. i am a groomer and the manager knows it. she hates me in the fact i know their defincies. she tried to ban me from the store, i made a police report for harassment. this is not over yet. the manager told the security guard she called we did nothing wrong. petco should leave hawaii. my grandaughter is 8 and they evicted her too. discrimination from petco, mainland company, impossible to get satisfaction, i will never go to petco again. high prices, bottom of the barrel employees
