    Kathy's Critters
    It went very well. They never completely dried my cat which was a bit disconcerting, and my cat didn't really like the bath. I did contact them about this and the person came right back to dry my cat completely with a big towel. But overall it was a fairly good experience.

    Park Avenue Paws
    He has just now acquired a mobile van. Mike Ryder is the owner/operator. I have been following Micheal all over this west side in the valley for the last 10 years. When you find a good's animal stuff, he's really good. They really get to know their dogs first. They don't just groom them.  They encourage people to get on a schedule with your animal so that their dogs....and they are hiring a cat person but they don't have it keep their dogs clean so that problems don't mount up. I have a dog who had a lot of ear infections and then now that I am getting him groomed on a regular basis, I haven't been to the vet once. They brush their teeth, clean their ears and trim their nails. He is pretty careful with detail. He just did a friend of mine's two dogs and for the first time he took three hours with the two of them. Not just to groom them, but to get to know them. He is coming in two weeks. When you find somebody who is really good...he is not starting a new business but he's starting a new form of business, you really want to help him out because he does such a great job. I don't want to be running all over souther California looking for him again. He got a brand new custom made van that is clean and impeccable. It's very hygienic which some groomers are not. I am just a happy client.

    You Dawg Groom Spot
    Have been using this place for about a year.  The staff is fabulous and they do a great job.  Oh and the name is Yo Dawg, not Your Dog, hopefully someone at Angies List will correct that.  Couldn't recommend them more highly.  I have tried many other groomers over the years for past and present pets and Yo Dawg does the best job, gives the best service, and has the best price

    I;m so glad BIG AL'S PET STORE is in my neighborhood. Johnathan and Marina are the best.  They special order whatever you may need if they don't have it already. The prices are better than the big chain stores too. Friendly, and caring. Highly recommend this store for your pet needs.

    Happy Pet treats my Gracie with great care. She gets such personal attention and she loves the groomers.This is the best groomer in Costa Mesa. She usually gets groomed a haircut, and her teeth brushed. Thanks Happy Pet.

    Center Sinai Animal Hospital/All Bird Clinic
    We have an awesome and amazing vet that we use. I would shout it from the rooftop. We've used them for seven years. They're really good with the animals. Everyone there is so loving towards the animals. The head doctor is amazing. Sometimes you walk in and there's no one in there and sometimes you walk in and they have a full house. They have a huge clientele. It's a testament of showing how well they treat their clients. We've seen other doctors there and they've all been really good. I referred them to a lot of my friends. They're a ten-minute drive from my house. They're convenient. Even if they have more distance from my house, I would still use them.

    • I was very happy with the service provided and overall experience.  The scheduler was very helpful in setting up a time that fit my schedule.  I was able to schedule an appointment the week I called.  The groomer arrived about 10 minutes early, and carefully listened to my specifications and concerns related to my dog.   The groomer patiently took 2 hours to work on my dog and he came out looking great.   Payment was easy, and I could use a credit card with the option to add a tip.  Lastly, the grooming van was clean both inside and out.  I have already recommended them to my neighbors.

    Terrys Canine Spa Mobile Grooming Service
    - I haven't time to give many details, but suffice to say - Terri is very skilled at her job. She knows her work and knows dogs. She bathes, blows-dry, clips and shaves, trims nails, checks ears and even anal glands - and delivers a perfectly-groomed pet at the end of her and quot;sessionand quot;. I told her exactly what I wanted in terms of the dog's and quot;lookand quot; - amount of hair to trim, etc. - and she took a photograph that I gave her and reproduced the look perfectly.
    I give her my highest recommendation.
    P.S. I DO NOT want my address published!!

    You Dawg Groom Spot
    We had found the perfect groomer for our (then) 2 year old Lhasa Apso rescue .
    She was a fear biter and an all around terror for some groomers but we found a talented woman on the westside. Much to our dismay, she moved out of state, but not before referring us to a groomer at YoDawg.
    To say the experience was a miracle is an understatement.  It only took two visits for her to trust them but also to let them do things to her that were previously an issue (like teeth brushing and nail clipping).  Halle is a beautiful dog and when she is groomed properly should looks like she could be shown.  
    The groomers at YoDawg took the time to play with her and gain her trust.  The end result was an incredible hair cut and a happy camper on her way out.
    We have since rescued a second dog, who had similar (but far fewer) issues. He looked like an entirely new animal after one grooming.
    I am grateful to have such talented, patient and passionate people working on my two furry creatures.  Lord knows they've had a terrible life before coming to our home.
    I HIGHLY recommend this place.  It is small, Halle is done in a private room so there is not a lot of confusion and noise around her. She loves being bathed and massaged (!)
    You owe it to you dogs (and cats) to try them out.  We previously paid a lot more money (hard to groom fees were customary by others in the past) and this was a bargain and a Godsend.

    Dee's Diamond Dogs
    I had a great experience with them because it was exactly what I had expected for my dog. They listened to what I wanted and there were no surprises. They're good and they're quick, they don't take a long time. Whatever time they promise you that's the time the dog is ready.The price that they charge me was fair.
