We have been taking our dogs to Canine Design for many years. They are very prompt, and do an excellent job on our dogs. Even our most recent (and nervous) rescue loves going to get groomed now. Doreen is terrific, and so is her staff. The BEST place to get your fur babies groomed in Kensington. :o)
Shame on me for not posting a review earlier. I've been taking my dogs here for 15 years. Older poodle (now passed away) was grumpy and didn't like anyone but was always well behaved here, which wasn't true elsewhere! That's how I found Doreen. Now I take my rescue mini poodle and my maltese. Again, rescue poodle is anxious and stranger-shy but seems to do really well here. The cuts are fabulous. Doreen asks what you want in terms of shaping and length, or you can just let them do their thing. I also like that I'm generally able to get an appointment fairly last-minute if I have some time off of work.
Wonderful place. Max looks great when he leaves. Freindly staff. Highly recommended!
I brought my dog here after a chaotic time at pets mart.
I appreciated the friendly and prompt service. They exceeded our expectations and gave my pup a great grooming.
Prices are reasonable.
I'm starting to become more of a fan of local business.
I was a bit worried when I called and made an appt here. Not much was asked like the usual places like how old is he how much does he weigh up to date with vaccinations. Just name and number. I said to myself what the heck it's just hair I'll give them a try. I'm all for supporting local businesses and I'm glad I did! For one they are so close and convenient located in the Kensington area don't have to drive way out to Rockville and sit in traffic. Lady in the front( sorry I didn't get your name) was sweet as ever. She assured me he would be fine and will call as soon as he was done. I took him at 8 right before work and was done by my lunch time. Didn't have to ask off at all. Looks great smells awesome! You guys have gained a customer. I will be going back!
