I took my Maltipoo in to see James and she came back looking absolutely perfect! The first picture with her bandana, courtesy of James, is her freshly groomed look and the second picture is her three weeks out, looking absolutely picture perfect still! I highly recommend James and Urban Whiskers Pet Grooming, you can tell he truly cares about animals, with all his heart and soul, and the quality of his work is a testament to his love for all animals. I’ve had a horrible experience with a groomer before (one groomer broke my chihuahua’s leg and it ended up needing to be amputated) so I’m extremely cautious and picky with groomers as a result. James’ quality of care and work made me feel safe and comfortable leaving my fur baby with him, and it takes a lot for me to be able to do that due to my previous bad experience with another groomer years ago. Thank you James for giving my Yeezy bear the cutest haircut!

Brought my little Penny here for the first time today! She’s a very anxious pup so I’m always nervous taking her to new places, but James was super sweet and attentive with her so I felt much better. She came out super clean and had the cutest puppy haircut! Highly recommend!

James had been grooming my dogs for decades! My Golden gets so many compliments after she gets her "hair done" - clean and puppy fresh.

James is not only the best groomer around, he truly loves the fur babies that comes through his door.

James did such a good job with my golden doodle. She was pretty matted and he took his time trying to save what he could and still made her look fanstastic. He's very nice and I will definitely be bringing my pup back!

James came highly recommended by a fellow dog parent who overheard me talking about looking for a place to get our baby girl Leelu a birthday grooming. Leelu is a chihuahua terrier mix so she has a wispy undercoat that makes her look like an old dog, and all I wanted was a trim so she'd look her age (she'd just turned 1). I read reviews online so I didn't have trouble finding the place (it's behind El Comal Mexican Restaurant). When I got there, I was greeted by a lovely gray cat, who was very friendly and even Leelu (who had a bad first experience with cats so avoids them altogether) felt comfortable enough to play with him a little. There was also a calm white kitty sitting on the counter. James came in shortly after and after talking a bit, I realized why he was so highly recommended. He absolutely loves animals. Tattoos with paw prints, very well groomed and put together himself, can't help but take in rescues. As we talked he was grooming a poodle and by the time we were done, it looked 100% better than it did when I first saw it. Despite it being short notice, he was able to fit Leelu in for grooming the next day (I came in on Friday, Leelu's birthday party was on Sunday). I told him what i wanted, he gave me a quote that was much lower than I was expecting to pay, and we were on our merry way. The next day was very easy. I dropped Leelu off and James expressed, again, how cute and calm she was. After about an hour, I got a text saying she was ready and when I picked her up, I couldn't help but text my boyfriend and several friends that I had traded leelu in for a younger model because she looked amazing! She smelled very lovely, her fur was nice and soft again, her nails didn't scratch, and I was able to see her eyes again. I was very satisfied and so was Leelu. At her birthday party, she received nothing but compliments. I very highly recommend this place. James is incredible and i will definitely be coming back for the quality of services and prices. Can't wait to see once the place is redone!

James always works a miracle on our scruffy lil guy. His shop is truly a hidden gem.
