Default Choosing a groomer

Anyone have any suggestions on how to find a good groomer? Logan's shedding like crazy at the moment and ordinarily I'd just take him to work and bathe him and use the force air dryer on him. But I have pretty much NO time to do that (work 7-12, school 1-2 and 4-6, and the dogsitting dogs need fet at 7, and there is a 30-45 minute commute from the house to work/school/anywhere civilized), and he badly needs blown out.

The dogs I'm watching go to the groomer every month. But I'm not thrilled with her - they're supposed to get a full-service groom, and the dogs come back with nails not clipped, ears not flushed (and this ear infections are common), and the fluffy dogs still have mats on their bellies.

I also am very leery of taking my dog to a groomer to begin with. I want NO furminators, no cage dryers, no shaving, and no free-range dogs in the grooming parlor while they're not being groomed. Basically, I want my dog safe and his coat not ruined.

I just have no idea where to even start. All he needs is a bath and a blow out, really, and I wish I had time for it, but by the time I DO have time I'll be buried under a pile of hair. Brushing alone is not even close to enough to control it this time of year.
