DO NOT GO THERE..For the second time in 2 years, they have given us back a maltese that was not ours. They hardly offered an apology, saying how they had 2 maltese to groom the same morning and how confusing it was...
They can't keep track of the dogs over there...Had I read the review below earlier on I would never have gone back!
Scillag is dead !! – 'Scillag' was our jet black toy poodle,he was born on
December 10,2005.He was only 4 years and four month old when I took him on Saturday 01 May 2010
to Canine Styles on Lexington avenue and 81st street.
for his monthly grooming.
It was 10 o'clock in the morning,a clear and sunny day.
I told Scillag to be good,as usual I would pick him up
at about 3 pm.
When I returned with my wife at 3 pm Scillag was dead!
Canine Styles staff let him escape from the grooming
area into the retail shop,from the retail shop onto Lexington Ave.
As usual we parked in front of the store to pick up
Scillag not reaizing for the moment that the black puppy across Lexington Avenue was our Scillag.
One of Canine Styles staff was running in pursuit after Scillag.Scillag made it to 82nd Street,he was hit
by a car and killed.
Canine Style staff came to the car to tell what happened.They asked me to come into the shop and
showed me his tiny lifeless body.
I stroked Scillags head and body,I asked myself why
him,the most precious living thing we ever had.
I told Canine Styles to put him in the back seat of the
car,we drove to the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery.
I contacted Canine Styles to compensate us for the
loss,our intentions are to contribute the compensation
total to the Elmsford New York Animal Shelter in memory of Scillag
After many month of no response we received an offer of $1500.00 with the insurance agents comments that "this was more then the dog wqs worth".Scillag was a Pedigree.
Since the Insurance Companies agent speaks for Canine Styles,let it be known to both of them that they caused immeasurable grief by their staffs
negliigence,the agents comments that the dog was
not worth 1500 dollars,is heartless,cruel and not
DO YOU AGREE?
I have never seen a dog store so clean and well done. And super nice. Kudos.
Perfect – My boarder terriers get hand-stripped here and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. It’s a dying art form and done perfectly here.
Shocked – I was shocked to see the woman at the West Side location get down on the floor and remove some twig from my dog’s paw while she was playing with my beagle and then then tell me my dog’s nails weren’t ready for a nail trim, which I would have happily paid for.
My only complaint is that I have to fly my toy poodle Fidget up from Palm Beach on Jet Blue every few weeks to get groomed—wouldn’t let anyone else touch her. Ella is the best.
Anyone who has spent any time in dog grooming stores in this town knows Canine Styles is the place to be.
I have been coming with my dogs to Canine Styles for almost 20 years and there is simply no other place I would bring them. Everyone brings their dogs to Canine Styles. Are they perfect? No. Are they as close to perfect as you are going to get dealing with live animals and their difficult & demanding owners: yes. And the merchandise selection can not be beat. They are a New York institution.
I was doubtful after Karen left but they have taken that place to a new level and the groomers are the same. And try to find those cashmere sweaters and carriers anywhere else.
Best of the best – I think my Yorkie would stop talking to me if I didn’t bring her to Natasha—people stop me in the street. Its one stop shopping and the best of the best. There is no other store like it in the world and I have looked.
