I had the pleasure of working at The Dog House for 7 years, and I cannot recommend Michelle enough. She cares immensely for her clients and is incredibly knowledgeable about all sorts of dog issues: from behavior to socialization to health, she's an invaluable resource for doggie parents! She takes care to train her staff to know the ins and outs of dog behavior, including temperament testing. No dog is allowed to attend daycare without first passing temperament tests, and there are breed restrictions in place - these tests and rules are there for the safety of all the pups. Dogs of all sizes are allowed to mix, unless there is a safety issue at play (i.e. teacup chihuahuas get to hang out in the Club Room, which is a special area separated from the rest of the main play floor, filled with cushions and in full view of the staff at all times). All dogs must have up to date vaccination records before they can begin daycare (or a vet note explaining any medical reason why they have not been vaccinated), and all dogs must be spayed or neutered if they are older than 7 months of age. Again, the vaccination records and spay/neuter requirements are for the safety of all of the dogs. I would never trust a facility that did not require them.

TDH also offers excellent and comparably priced grooming and bathing services by appointment (note: up to date vax records are required for these services, too). There is also a small, but lovingly curated retail section in the lobby, filled with top brand, healthy dog food and treats, and fun toys & accessories. I loved my time working there and learned a tremendous amount about dogs and dog behavior - I highly recommend it!

I love both the vibe and grooming - I took in my Japanese Chin Zak who really needed the works and he came back clean, great cut and with a huge smile on his face. Rather than just sitting in a cage while waiting to get his shower and shave he got to ""play"" with other pups and had a great, and unexpected, playdate! He was beautifully and meticulously groomed - that HE'S happy make mommy happy. He got the works for $50 and it was worth twice that to see how happy he was. They also take great interest in the pups - Zak was very shy and nervous but they immediately made him feel welcome. I highly recommend Doghouse L.A.!

Good for a little local day care...

I found this a good option when I don't have another. A little small, and all dogs of all sizes and temperments are mingled, which kinda bothers me. There was no screening process and I did worry for my dogs safety but it has worked out for the most part. Michelle is a doll.

THE WORST grooming ever.

I took my maltese to get groomed at the Dog House, and got back a pup that barely resembled my dog. I asked them to take off about half an inch of hair - instead, my maltese was everything but shaved - not to mention that the cut was choppy and her ears were trimmed unevenly! I shouldn't have to pay $55 to have an amateur ""groom"" my dog. Makes me wonder how good they are at everything else...

The Best

My dog Jackson has been going there for five years. He cannot wait to get there in the morning. He comes home happy, healthy and tired. The staff are like his extended family. I highly recommend The Dog House. The staff is friendly and go the extra mile in service. I know my pet wil be well taken care of.

This place rocks

I am a regular and they treat me like family. Of course they are going to ask for vaccination records, I wouldn't trust my pets in a facility that dosen't. My dog comes home tired and is happy to be dropped off in the morning. I love this place.
