    Thank you Skunkmasters,  Great service! Our dog Abbey was skunked last week and David came out that evening to our home to clean Abbey, get rid of the smell, and care for Abbey properly. David washed Abbey a few times to be sure to rid her of the smell and it is very important to him he delivers high quality services.  David took his time with her and she was very comfortable with him as well. David's price included coming back two additional times as it may be needed but we did not need a second visit at all, when we woke up in the morning the scent of skunk was completely gone and Abbey was really soft, it was like nothing ever happened. Thank you David for great service and being very pleasant with our dogs, and us! We highly recommend Skunkmasters should your dog get skunked, gentleness and kindness with our Abbey was most appreciated, dogs are family.  : ) Thank you again!

    David came to our house on a night call at 1130pm. He was fast, efficient, and very good with our chocolate lab. The job took about 90 min to complete. He gave detailed instructions on how to follow up his treatment if we noticed any lingering odor. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for great service.

    After my awesome experience with Skunkmasters, I would actually like to thank my dog for brutally killing a skunk in my backyard and getting sprayed directly in the face.  David arrived at my house at midnight on a Friday night and deskunked my pup.  Part magician/part dog whisperer, David approached my not-so-thrilled dog very calmly and was able to get the job done in one shot.  He strives for as close as perfection as he can get - and made himself available if  Tallulah's stench returned in the morning.  I can't say enough great things about the convenience of this service.  I had 2 sleeping daughters and a husband who abandoned me to deal with situation, so I couldn't not asked for a better person to help.

    Did a great job on my Doberman. Very caring about dog's comfort level and the attention to detail to get the job done was great. Bottomline: It worked really well.

    Cannot say enough about David from Skunkmasters.  So happy I found him at 10:00 last night when my 35 lb goldendoodle got skunked (and then ran through the house). He was here within 20 minutes.  So professional and wonderful with Brody (and Aubrey who did not get skunked, but was totally spooked).  He took care of the house first, then treated Brody outside.    His fee includes any follow-up treatment for the dog and/or the house if needed, but Brody is  perfect this morning.  We are off to the vet however, because David diagnosed an ear infection starting in Brody's ear.  In the dark with a lantern he was even able to do that!  Worth every penny!!!

    Our dog was skunked tonight by extra stinky skunk!  David was at our house within the hour and saved the day.  He was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and respectful.  Not only did he clear our dog of the odor, but he miraculously and quickly cleared the air in our house and carpets!  We are grateful that our friend highly recommended Skunkmasters and gave us David's contact info. It was worth every penny.  Thank you Skunkmasters!

    5 am. Dog gets skunked (in the city, not in the woods, lol). No idea what to do, so I google and found this company right away. They called back within 5 minutes, gave me an ETA of less then 45 minutes, showed up 10 minutes early and got to work. Very gentle with my Katie, earned her trust quickly,  Was very considerate of Katie's comfort while de-skunking her and even warms the water that he rinses her with.  Very professional and extremely nice and polite. Did a great job and it took less then an hour. Takes Visa as well which is always a big plus.  I wont lie, not cheap, but remember, you are calling for emergency and immediate service at an extremely early hour of the morning, and they come to your house so no need to smell  up your car. They get here so fast you can stay outside with the Dog provided the weather is decent.  Worth every penny. You get what you pay for in life, and this is not a situation where you want to go the :I have a coupon" route. I would use this company again and again in this situation,  Thank you so much Skunkmasters!!!!

    Skunkmasters is awesome. My husband was out of town, and one of our dogs, Charlie, got skunked and I did not know to NOT let him in the house. David was extraordinary with the dogs, ensuring he had their "permission" to come inside the house. He gave Charlie a really thorough (but gentle) bath and even put drops in to protect Charlie's eyes. David also cleansed our house of the smell, which I thought could never happen. David then called me a couple times to make sure everything was satisfactory and he came by to give Charlie a "touch-up" on his face! Don't know what I would have done without him, even if my husband had been in town!

    I cannot give enough positive remarks about this service. David is very professional, passionate about his trade and gentle to the dog. We would highly recommend him or his instruction guide to anyone who has a dog that either been skunked or wants to prepare themselves in the event your dog does get skunked. We came home from dinner to relieve the babysitter around 10PM. Let the dog out to do his business before going to bed. Skunked!  We have a huge golden retriever with long hair who is now rolling in the mud trying to get the skunk smell off of him. We had few options since it was so late and we couldn't bring him in the house. We found skunkmasters online, called and David was here within 1 hour. Fully cleaned the dog and today our house and dog are good to go. Amazing!

    Thank you, David for all your help when our dog Onyx met the bad end of a skunk in our yard! I called you based on your Yelp rating and was glad I did. You called back immediately and were at our house within an hour!  You were so calm with her.  She felt very comfortable with you.  Thank you for your expert advice and professionalism! You even saved us money!!  I would call you again if we need you (but hopefully Onyx learned her lesson and we won't have to??)

    It was 11:30pm on the 4th of July and we thought the fireworks were over. Nope! Boom!!! Our little Zoey got skunked. Oh no! It was so late & we were so tired. After googling "how to deskunk a dog" Skunkmasters.compopped up first. Thankfully David came to the rescue within an hour. He was PERFECT. Quickly gained Zoey's trust, repeated the process of applying the solution, rinse, apply, rinse until Zoey was spic & span. Perfect communication throughout the entire process. You couldn't ask for a better job & frankly, to have David come out in the wee hours on a Holiday was more than I expected when I made that call to Skunkmasters. Highly recommended!
  • Carolyn B. <br /><span class=Read original review on Yelp" />
    David was at my house in less than an hour, ready to go. His knowledge of canine behavior was keen and he was careful to form a bond with my dog before beginning his work.  My dog adored him! This man absolutely knows what he is doing!!  AND he guarantees his work. David was prompt to return to my home the next day to help me get the smell out of my car after it became apparent the next morning the spray attack must have been close to it.  I have been around enough skunked dogs and amateur deskunkers to know how long that smell can linger. David is an expert at his craft and while i hope I don't have to deal with a skunked dog again, I have total peace of mind knowing David and SkunkMasters are out there to save the day---or middle of the night as the case may be!

    Simply the best.  You are in excellent hands with Skunkmasters.  Dave did a great job with my skunked cocker spaniel Dollie. Very caring, excellent work, she survived with flying colors. Wish I could give them a better grade.  Support them.  They are wonderful and do a great service and job.

    Highly recommend this company and service. Was able to have David come to treat our dog with a partial power outage at our home. He worked under less than ideal circumstances, and still got the job done. He was very knowledgeable and our dog was comfortable with him. Dog smells great, and I was so happy to have her back in our home. Thank you!!
