Groomer cut my dog’s whiskers and eye lashes off, assuming “some customers want that” - never asked me if I also wanted that. Disappointed by lack of clear communication and poor understanding of impact of removing whiskers from a dog. Blow dry was as expected.

The best place to take you’re pups or adult dogs it’s a Day Care plus a Grooming services.

We are so happy's with our puppy's first haircut! We asked Andrea to cut 75% of her fur off and leave her head a bit round. We are so happy with our results. Highly recommend this place for grooming and daycare - they are truly the nicest. Thanks to Lidia and Violetta for all the best care of our puppies.

Great experience! Have used a few different groomers in the area for Hugo and this was great. Our cockapoo can have tricky hair to trim but we are so happy with this grooming service, it’s the perfect length for summer. Would highly recommend in LIC area.

The staff here are very welcoming & did a great job grooming my little Yorkie puppy. I almost cried when I saw how gorgeous he looked! It was his first time being groomed, as he's not even five months yet. I know he does stay calm when I wash, comb, and brush him at home, so I'm sure it was a difficult job. They took their time to make sure he looked great, & I really appreciated that they communicated up front that it would likely take a long while bc they would go slow with him so he wouldn't get too stressed. Also, I appreciate that they took time to discuss grooming at home, as my spouse and I are first-time pet owners. Lastly, I asked if I should come back in a month, which I thought was the frequency with which I should groom him, and instead of taking advantage of that and getting me in sooner to make more money, they were honest about the necessary frequency being 1.5-2x what I thought. They explained I shouldn't need to go in so often as long as I do well with the home grooming that they explained. We're definitely coming back, & I for sure recommend this place to others.

We have been taking our dogs there for about 6 months and we love it! The play area is very spacious for a city dog run. My larger dog can be timid sometimes with new people and places but she felt comparable there day #1. Always clean and I know my girls are being well cared for. The owner is so nice and welcoming. She always gives us a recap on the day after. Highly recommend!!

I took my golden retriever to get groomed the other day and they did great! They were very professional and caring with my boy. I know he had a good time because when I went to pick him up there he was with a big smile! Thanks again for getting my doggo all cleaned up!

Lidia loves and cares for Zoey, my mini-dachshund as if she was her own!! Always reliable, trustworthy, and a great value. We love her, and her IG page would be even more stellar with a pic or two of Miss Zoey!!

Awesome place!! I took my pitbull here for a grooming & it was the best place I’ve ever taken her to. I highly recommend anyone that needs premier customer service should come here. They take great care of your dog like their your own. My babygirl was happy!!

Doggie day care and boarding here is the best! My dogs get very excited to stay over and always seem to have a great time. The staff is so friendly and personable and always have great attitudes about meeting the dogs. Boarding here is excellent and they provide pictures and updates every day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is nervous about leaving their dogs at daycare.

This is only for grooming. When I saw my dog she is totally BOLD. I think if you cannot do the same hairstyle, this is ok, just be honest and tell me the truth! You should NOT promise what you cannot do, please tell me exactly how those two hairstyles are same??? Plus I just noticed that she also cuts the skin near her eye broken

We’re new to the neighborhood. I’m so glad we found this covid certified grooming and day care. They took good care of my babies. Very responsive. Easy contactless payment. Will definitely use again.

I will never take my dog to be groomed here ever again!! I decided to bring him here because my other grooming place was unavailable. The groomer was rude and when I went to pick up my dog, he was not the same afterwards. He seemed nervous and withdrawn as if he was being yelled at or mistreated. I took him to the vet due to his behavior , and thank goodness he was okay. The people in the front however , were extremely nice, I think his name was Ron and there was a girl there too. (I forgot her name, I am sorry) Other than that, ne

I took my dog to Dog Island City for grooming yesterday. the groomer put some soap or other irritating thing into my dogs’ eyes!!!!!!!! My dog can not open his eyes and he got infection and irritation seriously. The thing is that they seems to try to hide it and pretend nothing happen at first. It was me who pointing out that there is something wrong with my boy’s eye when I picked him up. We went to vet today (cost $ 300+ and he still feels really really bad and can’t open his eyes fully even already after one day). I am worried if this will affect his sights. Although the owner of this place apologized, I don’t think I will come back and I will definitely not recommend this place to other dog lovers. I should have listened to the review below that the groomer is not professional. It’s so irresponsible and I can’t believe this happen to my dog.

Every one of these workers are amazing! Lydia takes extra special care of the dogs to make sure their needs are met, whether they are getting a haircut or boarding, etc. Highly recommended.

This is a rating made because of their partnership with Korean K9 Rescue many months ago. I love that they gave up a day of business in order to host a rescue group's adoption event. I adopted a second dog from the event, and will recommend the store and it's services to others in the area.

Such a great place they take such good care of our Italian Greyhound which is a delicate breed. They are very communicative and caring! They are diligent with how they watch the dogs and how the dogs interact with one another. They text picture updates of the dogs playing. Dog Island City is a great place to bring your dog!!!

We love Lydia and her team. They all take such good care of our dog. Lydia has gone out of her way several times to accommodate our busy schedule and she always goes this extra mile with a smile. We are extremely grateful for Lydia and her team.
