I am partial to another vet, but brought my dog here in an emergency and they were terrific. Great service, caring Dr. and experienced tech's. You pay $$$ for care here..but what else is new? I'd much rather know that there is a second choice for me where my pets are well cared for irrespective of the cost!
PROS: Caring vet, good tech's.
CONS: pricey, but no more than others in area..obviously worth it!
Beyond Baroque Foundation has been actively supporting and contributing to the lives of local artists, poets in particular, in Los Angeles for at least 35 years that I'm personally aware of. They offer the longest running and best poetry and creative writing workshops in the State and they are free. They also have a small press bookstore, one of very few in L.A. where the works of local contemporary writers are sold. This is a local treasure~!
PROS: Truly great workshops offered gratis and a small press bookstore
CONS: they need money..help them out>>>
This kennel has some unique features, an air circulation system that replaces the air in the kennel nearly constantly so there is no odor and they also have an open area playtime for pets as well as a super premium doggie diet. I took my pups here frequently before we moved into a larger home with a yard. Now we hire a doggie sitter that comes here instead, but Camp Best Friends was a great solution to my vacation woes!
PROS: Spotless and friendly
CONS: pricey and only able to pick up dogs during certain hours
Wonderful personalized and professional service at a reasonable price. I searched for a groomer closeby who could take care of my pups without having to drive very far..I really lucked out with this one! Nice people, great work!
PROS: Professional, kind and reasonably priced
If you see someone trooping down Venice Boulevard with three hounds looking like they need a bath....that would be us on our way to the Dogromat! This place is great because you can bring your pets here and they have everything you need to bathe them yourself, plus they offer grooming services so while you're there you can get them all "Paw-dicures"
PROS: great idea..self serve doggie baths!
We bought all of our pet food from this store before they started selling puppies a couple of years ago. They have a huge selection of high end and natural dog food and treats. I object to pet stores selling puppies from puppy mill sources and this establishment is no exception. I consider it a rescue that we purchased a five month old puppy from this store. He was reasonably well cared for, but his unusual coat and coloring made this pup an unpopular choice at the high price he was offered for. After three months of watching this sweet thing languish in a pen, we added him to our family of other less costly "rescues". The fact that he was clearly NOT a popular choice did nothing to persuade the owner that at least this pet could be sold at a discount to encourage a loving home to take him in rather than see him outgrow his cramped quarters..... I love my dog, but will never again shop here..
PROS: Great selection of supplies
CONS: Puppy Mill store
One of my favorite ways to treat myself is to go on a product and treatment binge here. It's never easy to park on montana and of course Jurlique is a bit on the pricey side, but that's par for this course. A nice place for a special gift too!
PROS: LOVE the products!
CONS: hard to park and $$$$
Great treatments at bargain prices..let me tell you, those ladies that give the salt scrubs are NOT shy...I thought I'd get scrubbed right off the table, Jeez..talk about glowing! It was a lot of effort for what they charge..really good treatment!
PROS: Great treatments, bargain prices
CONS: Not totally luxurious, but you'll be happy when the bill comes!
I've also been coming to Thibiant for over twenty years. There is nothing that compares to the water treatments (ESPECIALLY the salt scrub!) or massage...except the absolute BEST french pedicure on earth!!! My monthly ritual with my friend is a massage...then across the street for a chopped salad ;0)
PROS: The best treatments EVER
CONS: $$$$ and everyone wants to go here these days..
I hate to give this away or I'll have trouble getting an appointment! Great waxing and skin treatments. Really convenient location and professional service! Nice ladies!!!
PROS: Professional and sweet!
