My dog had previously had a terrible grooming experience, being left in a dryer and brush burned, spent 2 weeks in hospital and almost died. For the last 2 years, I haven't been able to so much brush him without him freaking out. I dropped him off at Paws-A-While and he was quivering and crying. When I came to pick him up a couple of hours later, he was totally happy, bold, and totally at home. He was reluctant to leave! Connie and her staff are AMAZING. My dog is cured of his fear and this is the best he has ever been groomed in his life. I highly recommend Paws-A-While to anyone who wants their pet to be pampered, loved, and groomed to perfection.

Used them twice now, and didn't get what I was promised. The first time I took my cat to be washed and trimmed short because he has a problem with hairballs and the technician who answered the phone recommended it. A couple hours later I picked up my cat only to find him washed but not trimmed. Apparently, my cat was "too tense" and they decided not to trim him. So I paid nearly $70 for a bath and a combing I could have done myself. Great.

The second time was worse. I took both of my dogs in last week because I needed them flea-dipped and flea drops applied while I applied full court pressure to my home, vacuming flea powder, washing pillows, toys etc., in a last ditch effort to rid the dogs of fleas before the school year started. I was told they would be ready at 4pm, but at 4:15 they still hadn't started on them. I wanted to leave and come back when they were done, but the staff strongly advised me to wait while they washed my beagle because he was barking a lot and being disruptive and they wanted him out of there. Why they waited three over hours to come to this conclusion is beyond me... So I waited while they performed the fastest flea bath I've ever seen and applied flea drops in a hurry.

I had to return later for my cocker spaniel and it looked to me as if they had just squirted the drops on the outside of her fur without parting it, but I figured they are the experts so I didn't say anything.

That was 10 days ago. This morning I gave my cocker spaniel a bath because he has been scratching constantly. I could not believe my eyes as more than 10 giant adult fleas fell off from the force of the water, and started walking around in my bathtub! This is more fleas than she's EVER had! And this was not a new hatching, these fleas have been around for awhile judging by their size.

So, I have had two experiences with Paw-A-While now, and I am giving two stars because they were nice enough to me and my pets, but I am very unsatisfied with the services I have received.

Maybe they are the best place around to do doggy haircuts, but I doubt we'll bother using them again.

Paws-A-While is a fantastic grooming salon! I drive 30 minutes to take my malti-poo for her grooming. I have complete confidence in their grooming talents and know she will look beautiful when I pick her up. The price is a bit more than other groomers, but the grooming is top drawer.The people are wonderful and the dogs enjoy their visits. I give this place "4 Paws Up!"

The BEST PLACE for grooming I have ever experienced!!!!

I have taken my little Boo to several different places in her 4 short years, including when I lived in Dallas. This is by far the most 'dog friendly' place she has ever been. Today was her first visit and she came home beautiful and happy. Normally, she is 'screeching' to get out when I pick her up from grooming. Today she was enjoying sitting among the other dogs who were all lined up next to each other watching the action. Everyone that worked there was so nice and professional. They definitely enjoy their profession and how to LOVINGLY groom your pet.

I had to photograph the dogs when I walked in to pick Boo up. You will know what I mean when you take/pick up your pup. What a treat!!!!

I have had Bella my Lhasa Apsos groomed by this incredibly wonderful team for the past 14+ yrs. We used to live in Hermosa Beach but since 2000 live up in the Bay Area. I still ONLY come here every time we come down to the LA Area.
They truly care, take the time needed for each pet and they know what they are doing. She always looks amazing and is a happy pup coming from there.
Thank You!!

I have been going to Paws-A-While for many years. In fact it has been 13 years. They have the best care and they know how to groom a soft coated wheaten terrier. Hard to find someone with their experience! The owner Connie, and Audra a great groomer too, really care about each animal that passes through it doors. And if you need a great teeth cleaner, check out Chad. He uses no meds and you will need to check when he is there. The whole team from the shop are the best, they CARE!
