Viva La Pooch did a good job grooming my dog. He has long hair and it was getting all matted because he doesn't like for me to brush him, plus he went rolling around in mud in the backyard. I finally took him in, and they shaved most of his fur off. They had to because it was so bad and it was the only way to get the mats out. He felt much better after that and I was able to keep up his grooming at home. He didn't mind it so much because his hair was so short and it didn't hurt anymore. He came out of there smelling so fresh and clean, and he looked much happier. I would definitely go back if he ever needed it. They were not overly expensive and the place seemed very clean, and the people who work there are nice.
