"In terms of price, quality, responsiveness, and punctuality, I cannot say enough good things about Dawn and the individuals she hires. My partner and I travel a" lot, sometimes for weeks, and what I want, what everyone wants in a pet sitter, is someone you can trust to care for your home, love your pets while you are away, and have the good sense and resourcefulness to act intelligently should a crisis arise. Dawn and her crew have all of that in abundance. What I liked best about is that you see what you get. Dawn has a shop in the neighborhood so you can meet her and her crew first hand. When you walk into the store they ask you how you AND YOUR PETS are by name, and that in itself is so comforting. It is obvious that Dawn attracts and hires the best quality people--mostly young, college-educated women--who are well-spoken, well-groomed, and well-mannered. So, I knew first hand that they know my animals and that they are taking good care of them. My cats were always happy and relaxed when I returned from a trip, the place was clean, and I could just pop around the corner to pay my bill. No worries. One of Dawn's other comforting and priceless qualities is her resourcefulness and common sense. Once we were overseas on vacation and our key did not work. Dawn texted us immediately, I contacted my neighbor and gave Dawn their contact info. Within a very short time, Dawn had contacted the neighbors and was inside our place with a new set of keys. She sent a picture of my cats to give me extra piece of mind. So, she is super resourceful and able to work things out. It really was like having another me back home to do things the way I want them done. She and her crew really love the animals in their charge and enjoy taking care of them. As for the shop, when my cat needed high fiber food, she special ordered it. When I recommended a litter, she started carrying it. My only problem with the merchandise is that a lot of it is made in China. It would have been nice to see more American-made stuff. It is out there. I love to keep it local. Despite the fact that I can get pet supplies more cheaply at Target or Petco, I went out of my way to shop at her store because I value small businesses and what they bring to a community. I love that Dawn is a small business owner, that she is not a subsidiary of a big impersonal corporation, and that she is not just a shop, but a valued member of our community who just happens to do what she does better than Petco ever could. She brings the personal touch. Sadly, Dawn repaid my loyalty with gossip, pettiness, backstabbing, and a show of such ingratitude as I have never experienced before. She turned on me and my family in the most unneighborly fashion and flew her psycho-flag just long enough for me to reconsider my loyalty and to take my business elsewhere. I had overlooked her gossip and backhanded comments about others and laughed it off as one of her eccentricities--we all have them. Then I found myself on the receiving end of her sorority-girl brand of mean and, well, it's a shame. Apparently she doesn't need my business and is doing quite well without it. So, more power to her. I hope this is an isolated incident because I would hate to see Petco's Unleashed as the only option in the South End.

Pet Grooming - Dogs, Cats and Exotic Animals

Pet grooming is a regular part of pet ownership that should be part of your budget before adopting a pet. You can groom your pet yourself at home or hire professional pet groomers in your area with storefront locations or mobile grooming services. Animal groomers typically base their fees on the breed, hair length and size of your pet. Mobile services may cost more, but take less time.

They get you in very quickly. The staff is caring toward the animals. I love how they the pets when they go in because it makes them feel special. They provide a very good service and their hours are convenient. They are open 7 days a week. They also board along with a variety of other services.

It is very hard to find a place that knows how to groom Bichon the right way. The place is clean which says a lot to me. I think the price is very reasonable. My dog is always happy when I pick her up.

Unsatisfactory. Witnessed groomer shouting at cat and acting rough. Later found cuts on cat's underbelly. Groomers did admit they specialize in dogs but could handle cats -- if they couldn't, would have preferred they didn't take the assignment. Some knots removed, but at least one remained in place.

is wonderful. My rescued dog does not like cages and ''doggie play group'' combined with boarding has been wonderful for my pet. After trying several different kennels, this was the only place, that he seems to relax in and come back tired but happy. The staff is great and truly seem ...More to enjoy working with the animals. In addition, they are very reasonably priced, for the level of service they provide. And, better yet, they have web-cams if you want to check in on your dog, to make sure they are being well taken care of and having fun.

Wonderful - my dogs came out looking so much better than at other places. They really took into consideration how I wanted their faces to look and just trimmed everything so it looked even better. $105 for my two dogs was also a great price compared to other places, which would either refuse to deal with any tangles in my dogs' hair, or just ...More cut them really short to save on time. The other dogs there for doggy day care seemed to be having a lot of fun, and in general it was a nice place to be.

We have been going to 's for years and they have always provided such wonderful care for our dogs. It is a small one room shop that provides a high level of personal care for our four-legged family members. Our dogs have always been so miserable during the summer months with their long, thick coats, so this year we decided ...More to have them shaved. It was the greatest gift we could have ever given them - they were comfortable and cool all summer, and hardly panted at all. 's staff obviously love animals. One of our dogs is a little temperamental with strangers, but 's staff handles her beautifully, and she has never been a problem for them. They also groom cats, and it can be hard to find someone who will do that. We recommend them highly to anyone who wants the best care for their animals.

Exceptional work with our dog. They' even helped after a skunk encounter. They take as good or better care with her then we do. They carry so many types of foods and treats. Our dog is generally uncomfortable at places with other pets, but she enjoys this location completely and is eager to leave the car when we arrive so ...More she can socialize. Very individualized care.

We needed to have our cat shaved on short notice. Our vet, South Bay Veterinarian, couldn't do it, but recommended of . worked for 6 years as a nurse at South Bay and has a good relationship there that has continued. She also clearly knows her way around cats, as she specializes ...More in cat grooming, which few groomers do, as it turns out. and her assistant came to our house the next afternoon to shave our cat, giving her a cut. No cat likes to be groomed, but did a great job and even clipped our cat's nails for us. The convenience of having the groomer come to our house can't be topped and she was punctual and professional. We will use , again, and we enthusiastically recommend her services to other cat owners.
