wow someone actually likes this guy!! – I took my lasa mix to Kevin and hoped to get a great cut. Because of the reviews. He must have someone writing them for him!. This guy is a fraud, sure he seemed nice but as soon as i walked out i got a wired vibe. My dogs cut was horrible very choppy and uneven and he seemed very lathargic when i got him home. The price was cheap I guess if you pay cheap you get cheap.
Happy dog AND happy dog owner...50%of the time – The first time that I went to Kevin, (8/08) I was really happy with the service, the grooming, the price, everything! So happy, that I was able to ignore the way that the place looked. Three months later, I went again, (11/08) thinking that I was going to get the same type of service. I did not. I left my dog with Kevin and his assistant. They DID give him a good bath and dry. However, this time the assistant did the work, instead of Kevin. The assistant is either not confident in what he does, or is afraid of dogs, and my dog could tell. My dog would not cooperate with the assistant. Did they call me to let me know that there was a problem? No. They waited until I came back, then Kevin did a really fast "chop job" on my dog's mats. I was really disappointed. I thought that I had found a reliable grooomer. I will not go back.
Great with cats! – I have been taking my elderly cat to Kevin for a few years now, and I followed him when he moved from across the street. I have a hectic schedule and he always works with me. I have tried other groomers, including the other people at Remington's, and I am happiest with Kevin's results and his genuine personality. My old kitty is very delicate, and he is always gentle with her, and she actually purrs when he shaves her! Finding someone who does well with cats is not easy, and Kevin does a great job. His prices are fair, and he has plenty of "hands on experience", which when it comes to grooming your pets is very important!
Kevin is great- even if he isn't labeled a "Master" – I took my English Springer Spaniel to Kevin about 3 months ago and was just looking him up again to bring her in for a Summer cut and saw the previous review. Everyone who has seen my dog has said they think she looks great. She finally looks like a Springer. Remington's accross the street always gave her a bad cut, and she was terrified everytime she came even close to their front door. At Kevin's, she is happy with her tail wagging when she goes into his house. She comes out with a great cut, a cute bandana, a treat, and is very relaxed. I think Kevin truely cares about "his pups" as he calls them and it shows!
um NO! – After taking my schnauzer to be groomed by kevin, i was very unhappy to say the least. The cut looked very choppy and i swear i could smell mari j coming from the back. I walked out side and noticed a very tacky sigh stating "master groomer kevin sweets formerly from across the street". I soon found out he is not a certified master groomer. All in all, I would say steer clear of "master" groomer kevin. Do yourself a favor and take your dog to Remingtons where they have a real Master groomer and a awesome groomer named Pedro who is great with terriers.
Great groomer – Absolutely wonderful - I took my 3 year old toy poodle in to see Kevin. Kevin, who is so friendly, wanted to know exactly how I wanted him groomed, what length I wanted his coat, how I wanted his face to look, etc. When I came back a couple of hours later, they were tying a bandana around his neck and he had never looked cuter!! Exactly what I wanted and at a very reasonble price. Plus, the bandana and the little baggie of dog treats were such nice touches. Will definitely be returning to see Kevin!
Best dog groomer in Denver – My experience at Kevin and Friends has always been positive! Kevin and his wife are EXTREMELY kind to me and my dogs. Kevin makes sure that I am satisfied with my Shih Tzu's hair cut every time I go in and every time I am happy. Other places around town butchered her hair around her face and made her look stupid but not Kevin! The dogs are really clean and smell great! They stay clean, too, for at least 6 weeks. Kevin and Friends is reasonably priced and they do a fabulous job. They are quick and thorough. The dogs get a cute bandanna and a little bag of treats each time they go. I highly recommend Kevin and Friends to all dog owners in the area.
excellent grooming experience – I've taken my 3 year old toy poodle for grooming to Kevin for the past 6 months and will no longer take him anywhere else. After bad experiences at several independent and chain store groomers who don't seem to understand the concept of "scissor cutting," I was worried that I'd strike out once more when I first tried Kevin & Friends. Boy was I wrong!!!
Kevin grooms your dog as you want him to, not as he deems fit. He is a master with both the scissors and clippers and is so confident of his work that he invites you to stay and watch!!! Your dog feels more comfortable and so do you, knowing that he is in kind and expert hands.
And yes, the results are great!!! I'm almost afraid to recommend Kevin because he is so good that I don't want to share, but if you have a difficult dog in need of grooming, you cannot do better than Kevin.
Great Neighborhood Groomer – Kevin is a great groomer in a wonderful little neighborhood shop. My dog loves to go see him and always looks great after his haircut. He also gets a bandana after every groom - usually it goes with the current holiday - very fun!!
