The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Barking Beauties Dog Spa stand apart from its competitors. Thomas said that they pamper your animal and treat them as if they were their own. He told us about their amazing and experienced staff, like their master groomer, Laura, who has been doing this for 25 years. He also gave praise to Jen and Allison. Thomas also told us about their cage-free facility, saying:

“Ours is a free-running shop, so all of the dogs can run around. We don’t lock dogs up when they aren’t being groomed; they are able to run around freely.”

He went on to tell us about the business mission at Barking Beauties Dog Spa. Thomas said:

“Our mission is to provide the most professional grooming possible while pampering your pooch and treating your dog as if it was our own.”

Building Success With Customer Service

Barking Beauties Dog Spa has earned a fantastic reputation, so we asked Thomas how they have managed to grow their business and get such great reviews. He said that their reviews are organic and that it is their great service that has led to their reviews.

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Barking Beauties Dog Spa has spread the word about who they are and what they do mostly through word of mouth.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Barking Beauties Dog Spa has managed to. We asked if Thomas could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“It all begins with the customer service at the shop. The second you feel entitled that [someone owes you their business], you start to hurt. It’s all about personal experience and customer service.”

Not Your Average Pet Groomer

Elizabeth Roth, the District Manager of Life of Riley Pet Hotel & Spa, generously gave us a few minutes of her time to tell us about this one-of-a-kind business and its award-winning online reputation.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that sets Life of Riley Pet Hotel & Spa apart from the many other pet groomers in Washington, DC. Here’s Elizabeth’s response:

“It all starts and ends with customer service. We greet people with a smile, know the dogs and treat them as our own. We want the owners and dogs to feel at-home when they are here with us.”

Elizabeth went on to add:

“It has been great being a part of the community here in DC! Our grooming salon has more than 30 years of experience between our two groomers.”

New York’s Top Rated Local® Pet Groomers Award Winner: Pet Style

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Pet Style is the number one pet groomer in all of New York for 2019!

Help your pet to look and feel their very best by turning to Pet Style in Syracuse.

Pet Style has received more than 100 reviews on four verified sites with an average rating of 4.95 stars, earning them an exemplary Rating Score™ of 97.47 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for being ranked the number one pet groomer in all of New York!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“I highly recommend Pet Style to anyone. I bring my cat to them. They do everything they can to make your pet as comfortable [as possible]. The owner is an extremely talented groomer. They truly love animals and are passionate about what they do.” – Stephanie S.

Not Your Average Pet Groomer

We wanted to know what makes New York’s number one pet groomer so special, so we took a few minutes to talk with Jaime Baleno, who is an owner and groomer of Pet Style along with her husband, Jim, who helps out whenever he can.

The first question we had for Jaime was what makes Pet Style unique compared to their competition in New York. Jaime pointed to the fact that they provide quality grooming services at a great price and use good products. Her shop is different because you pay one price for the entire service; there’s no nickel-and-diming. People love the way their dogs are treated. If a dog is having a hard time with the grooming process or starts to get anxious, they will send the dog home and try again down the road. They don’t force dogs into uncomfortable situations.

Jaime went on to tell us that Pet Style is a full-service grooming company that offers haircuts, nail trims, teeth brushing and even color. They sell treats, work with cats and are willing to work seven days a week. They board dogs as well, and when they do, Jaime stays and sleeps at the shop to ensure safety and comfort. They offer full-blown photoshoots with props, backdrops, costumes, etc. They’ve even helped a client with a gender reveal!

We also asked Jaime about Pet Style’s mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Jaime told us about the many ways they’ve given back to their community, including giving discounts to police officers, firemen, first responders, veterans and college students, and donating to local charities during the holidays.

Building Success by Treating People and Animals With Respect

When we asked Jaime what their secret is to such a strong online reputation at Pet Style, she told us that they live by the saying, “Shoot for the moon, and if you don’t get there, at least you’re among starts.” She went on to tell us that they are committed to treating people and animals with respect, and to making sure that both the pets and their owners are as comfortable as possible.

Apart from building the kind of online reputation any business would envy, Pet Style has spread the word about their service through online marketing and word-of-mouth referrals.

Every business owner wants to grow their business and build their online reputation the way Pet Style has. Here’s Jaime’s advice for them:

“Be sure to thank your customers for good reviews and address the not-so-good reviews. Back up everything you say online when people do business with you in the real world. Knowing that they’re getting the same person they’ve gotten to know online is important to customers.”


Congratulations to the team at Pet Style for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Jaime, for taking the time to speak with us!

We highly recommend Pet Style in Syracuse. Visit their website today!

We wanted to learn all about Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming and its impressive online reputation, so we took a few minutes to talk with Groomer and owner, Karin Schoenfeld.

The first question we had for Karin was what is it that sets Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming apart from their competition in Colorado. Karin told us that, because they provide one-on-one service, the grooming time is cut down to an hour, which is much shorter than you’ll find at most other shops. And because clients work with the same groomer every time, they are able to build a relationship with them. At the end of the day, Karin says that it all comes down to the great people they hire.

Karin went on to tell us that Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming has been in business for 17 years, has four vehicles and cares for 500 animals every month. She added:

“We are always accepting new clients, and we grow by about 20 percent every year.”

We also wanted to know what their mission is at Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming and how they work to make the world a better place. Karin told us that they make the world a better place by simply being available for people and pets in their community:

“We can help out people who aren’t able to drive anymore and people with animals who don’t do so well in a car or with traveling. It is easier for everyone in the community.”

Building Success Through Organic Reviews

Karin attributes Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming’s strong online reputation to their many organic reviews:

“We will do a postcard to ask clients to fill them out. We find it is difficult to get reviews, and every review means the world to us. Our clients can sense that we all really enjoy our jobs.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming hasn’t had to do anything else to get their name out there:

“Our reviews online generate a lot of our business.”

There are so many business owners out there looking to build the kind of online reputation Soapy Dogs Mobile Pet Grooming has. Here’s Karin’s expert advice for them:

“Take care of your clients to the best of your ability, and be prompt in your response to phone calls…”

It is because of excellent reviews like this that Cici’s Pet Parlor is now able to call themselves a Top Rated Local award winner for the second year in a row!

What Makes An Award Winning Pet Grooming Company

We were excited to catch up with Cici’s Pet Parlor and hear about how the last year has gone for them, so we sat down with the Co-Owner, Tracy.

Tracy started off by telling us a bit about their business and their team and how they got their start. She told us that she has been grooming for 22 years and that her sister has been grooming for 18 years. Tracy got her start working in a chain store back in 1999 before working at a few different shops. She said that it was during that time that she learned a lot about what not to do! Eventually, Tracy and her sister realized that they should take the plunge and attempt to open their own business. She said that they work with the mission of simply helping animals.

When we asked Tracy what makes Cici’s Pet Parlor stand out compared to others in the industry, she said:

“I think the difference is the care we put into the animals and the customers! We are fast, friendly, polite, and take an extreme amount of pride in all we do!”

When it comes to their accomplishments over the last year, Tracy told us about all of the new clients that have visited them and how they have been able to hire more like-minded people with a similar working style to them.

Making It As A Small Business

It takes a lot of courage and even more hard work to make it as a small business in today’s world. We asked Tracy what has been the most rewarding part of being a small business, like Cici’s Pet Parlor.

“The most rewarding part has been being able to run it the way we want to run it! We are family-oriented, and there is nothing stopping us from growing into who we need to be! We have shown our customers a very laid-back and different approach. I love being able to provide the best possible service to our customers and their furry friends.”

Tracy also told us about the biggest lessons they have learned so far as a business. She told us that they were the third owners of the shop, so at the start, they had a lot to prove and had to work hard to earn the trust of the community. She said that since they took over, anyone who walks through their doors has seen the drastic, positive changes they have made.

When we asked what’s next for Cici’s Pet Parlor, Tracy said that they are going to continue to work on getting their name out and getting more referrals. She said that their reputation and success so far has been thanks to word of mouth and customer service. So far, all of their growth has been organic!

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Cici’s Pet Parlor has managed to. We asked if Tracy could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Get your name out there, and have phenomenal customer service; you need to truly listen and hear what their needs are. There are a lot of people with bad past experiences, and they want you to know about it and need the reassurance that it won’t happen in your shop.”

Tracy also wanted to make sure to give a special thanks to the local community; she said:

“We would not be in business if it was not for you allowing us to care for your furry friends!”


Congratulations to Cici’s Pet Parlor for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Tracy for taking the time to speak with us!

She continued to tell us about the importance of learning and evolving:

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Diamond In The Ruff Mobile Pet Spa has managed to. We asked if Maggie could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what she had to say:

“Care about what you do, and pour your heart and soul into it! If we didn’t give this everything we have every day, we would not have made it this far. You are only as strong as your weakest link. We all have similar goals and know we are all working towards the same thing. One person dropping the ball affects everyone. This is about the team!”

Maggie ended our chat with these meaningful words of gratitude:

“Thank you to all of my past customers and future clients for allowing me to take care of your furry friends! I am forever indebted to my ACE team! It is neat to work with a community of people who want to go to work everyday!!. Thank you to my husband for being my continual support system and rock!”


Congratulations to Diamond In The Ruff Mobile Pet Spa for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Maggie for taking the time to speak with us!
