Problems with Product/Service
Read Complaint Details
Complaint: When I called to make appnt for grooming my 2 dogs, I was told, when I started to give instructions, that they had the information on file. When I brought the dogs in, I said, I suppose you have the information on file?. They said yes. I had done business here more than once. They cut the dogs hair the way I want it done in the winter, which was for the most previous visit. However, it is now the end of May, I wanted them totally shaved, they were not. Nor was I allowed to say this, because, 'they had the informantion on file'. I made an appt for a month forward to do this. ****, the owner, called my house,that night, suggesting that, since the girl who had worked with my dogs before could be in the shop tomorrow, the next day, at 3, I could bring them in for the complete shave. I did this. When I picked up my dogs, after Embark had corrected it's mistake, I was told it would be a little more for the shave. **** charged me an additional $24, on top on the initail, I though reasonable price, of $76, for the shampoo, incorrect cut, and footcare on 2 dogs. I came back to them under the assumption that the girl who worked on my dogs did not clarify what was to be done, she only affitmed that she had it in her notes, and so, that this was a mistake they were fising. **** said nothing about an additional fee when I agreed tp come back nor when I was dropping them off. I did not ask if an additional fee would be charged, becaiuse on a previous occasion, Embark then and there fixied a mistake by shaving my dog's tail before we left. That fix was no fee. Suddenly, this fix is a fee. Embark's assumptions are costing me time and money.
Desired Settlement: $24.00 refund. Not an offer for $24.00 in goods/services.
