From Superpages (
"I needed to get my dogs nails trimmed. I tried doing it myself(after Petco was useless and couldn't do it) and since I don't know what I am doing, and my dog is absolutely terrified of nail clippers, it didn't turn out well. This place has $10 nail clippings, with no appt necessary, so we stopped off here after work. My dog is a complete spaz, he kept trying to get out, and scratched the poor lady cutting his nails(and my boyfriend and I too). BUT she got it done, and quickly, and relatively painless too(well, for him at least). Sure the $10 Nail trim ended up costing me more like $30, cuz I had to tip the wonderful lady A LOT in the hopes of her agreeing to do it again, and I had to buy a new shirt after he tried to claw his way out of my arms. But his nails are finally trimmed. Thank you so so so much!!!!"

"I have taken my dogs to Best Friends for years, well over 15. I have taken puppies to geriatric dogs and have always had a good experience. I even forgot to pick them up one time and the owners took them home until I could come and get them, how embarrassing is that... I would give them two thumbs up for how they care for animals and also for how good of job they do on grooming..."

From Judy's Book (
"Over the years, Alexa has taken great care of our pets; 2 golden retrievers, a black lab, a bischon frise, and 3 longhair cats. It is the best experience I could ask for. Always done on time, completely reliable, cute little bandanas around their necks and they have even brought the animals home on 2 occasions when I was waiting on deliveries and couldn't get away."

"I've taken my cocker spaniel to several other groomers, including dog spas in Kirkland and Bellevue. None of those other places came close to how well Best Friends cares for my dog. He is calm, no razor burns or bad nail clips when I pick him up. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Their prices are very competitive, too. My cocker spaniel is fairly "bomb proof"--little kids can pull his ears and he won't bite. Other dog salons said he was a biter, which shocked me. Best friends' groomers all say my dog is very loving and gentle. The difference is in the low pressure atmosphere. They don't overbook and then take their stress out on your dog. Love 'em!"

From Judy's Book (
"I took my cats in to have their toenails clipped and it was really inexpensive and they can get you in right away. I've also used them to shave my cats since I have allergies and this has reduced my allergy attacks by at least half. I would recommend them, but for grooming -- book early -- as they have loyal clientele that keep them busy. They are very punctual and have had my animals ready when they say they would."

"Fast friendly and no fuss??! I just brought back two very matted Bishon's and they came back immaculate and on time with out any complaints. They did the nails and ears even though I forgot to ask. Great place and friendly staff. They are my new Best Friends! Thanks Alexa and team!"

"I take my two Yorkies here for baths, cuts and nail trims. They always treat my girls like gold and have them ready on time. They clearly love what they do. My girls always come out looking beautiful and happy. They love spa day! I have always had great service. Last visit, I took both dogs in and they cut the wrong one short. I confronted them and they made it right at no charge. They were genuinely sorry for the mistake. Hair grows. No biggie. Customer service is a biggie and these people get it."

"This is a GREAT dog grooming shop. I have been using Best Friends Grooming Salon for over a year. I know the owners very well and they are fantastic people - they take great care of all the dogs. They know most of them by name and love them as though they were their own. A top notch business."

"Just writing to tell you what a great experience we had getting our cat groomed by you ... your really took the time to ask questions and find out what we wanted done. She came home and strutted around the house for days. She looks great and I can tell she feels great!"
