I can't tell you how happy we were to see a business like this open up in our neighborhood. And then we were further surprised to see that it was part owned by a couple of our former (and favorite) vets, and staffed with a caring, dog-friendly staff. This place rocks the house! The facilities are beautiful -- the best I've seen in L.A., and the staff really spends a ton of quality and quantity time with the dogs. You can even check in with the web cams (one of my dogs is such a ho for attention, so he's easy to spot). My dogs love this place so much, that all we have to do is say "K9" and they start going crazy and heading for the door. It's their favorite place to be, aside from home (at least I think home is still #1). Highly, highly recommended.
I'm a long-time Darla's customer, I've been going there for over 10 years. Darla's is a great place with great people, reasonable prices, and they do an outstanding grooming job, especially with my terrier, which other places have a hard time with. My dog is now pretty old and recently had surgery, so when I took her in for a groom, the owner recommended that I stay and wait. They made her a priority and finished the grooming quickly. I recommend checking this place out.
Used to take my cocker Spaniel to get groomed here. My dog gets skin allergies during the summer time and gets flaky scaly patches for about 2 months per year. Vet told me that this is common in Cocker Spaniels. Willie's used to groom my dog well until he blamed my dog for causing skin problems on other dogs that he grooms and would no longer accept my dog for grooming. Good service while it lasted.
