    by: iceire

    One ?,have any of ye stayed while ye pet was being groomed?...if not then I feel sorry for ye pets,I worked for her & saw many times the abuse she did while grooming a pet,behind the scenes she is a nasty & mean person,ask other groomers in Watertown,they will agree with me on this and check out http://www.ripoffreport.com/ There are complaints about this woman,she will be friendly and kind to ye in person but if she feels the need she will bash ye behind ye back,til this day she is still bashing me and today is the 1st time in yrs I've had anything to say about her and thats only because she called a good friend of mine and said some nasty things to her because of me and I have already warned Wendy if she keeps it up I will do everything in my power to let the public know exactly wot kind of person she really is. So ye can take this and do wot ye will and I'm sure ye will let Wendy know and I'm am okay with that,I've have nothing to hide!

  • 5. Wendy is Great

    by: FayLeneIrene

    Wendy truelly cares about the animals and is very knowledgeable. In 2005 our there was a large fire in our apartment building that left many of us homeless for a few months. Before the fire department had left the scene, she had volunteered to take any animals in that resided in the building, she had a vet examine and treat all the animals at no cost to the us, as well as bathed and groomed them all. She provided advice in regards to what could be washed and what needed to be thrown away due to toxins from the smoke. With everything going on and being left with no place to live for a short time it was nice to know our animals were getting the care they needed.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable/Animal Lovers

    Cons

    The state street location is no longer open

  • 14. They truly care about your pet

    by: Mistletoe76

    They were great about fitting us in last minute when we initially adopted our dog from a family that had never groomed him in the 7 months they owned him. He was full of fleas and his hair was in horrible condition. He looked nothing like a Mini Schnauzer before he entered The Shaggy Dog but was so handsome afterwards. They got rid of the fleas too.

    Pros

    They LOVE taking care of your pet

    Cons

    Location...hard to park and cross the street

  • 15. Superb!

    by: danaavey

    I can't say enough about the owner of the Shaggy Dog. Wendy truly cares about animals. I took in a stray kitten, and while she did not have room for the kitten in her shop, she injected the cats with fluids due to dehydration and gave me some really helpful tips to try over the weekend until I could get the cat to the vet. Over a year later, and "Nora" is still a part of our family & is as healthy & as happy as can be!

    Pros

    Owner that cares

    Cons

    Seems to have closed shop?!
