Rock & Roll Doggy Pet Grooming
On the weekends, I like to wake up really early, get in a good run, and then finish off my day with THE most intense full-body exercise routine ever: cleaning our big Labradoodle girl Leila. Just kidding.
It cannot be more of a chore to get her cleaned up after a while, because a) she's very big, b) her ears need plucking, c) she hates having her nails trimmed, and d) she hates the blow-dryer. Oh, and did I mention that she's terrified of water that's not the ocean?
So whenever she needs all of the above done (teeth, ears, nails) plus a good workout like hiking the canyons, I call upon Jaime and Rock'n'Roll Doggy to make my life easier.
He shows up right on time, and I get her back after a fun day running around and playing with other doggies. It's so awesome to follow him on Twitter and seeing happy pics of her in the great outdoors while sitting in the office!
Leila was fluffed up and smelled nice and fresh. He uses only herbal / organic stuff, which Leila likes since her skin is very sensitive. Well worth the money to have him come to my place to get her picked up and brought home. After spending the day with Jaime she is the happiest, most balanced pup you could think of.
Also upon Jaime's recommendation, we changed her food to Taste of the Wild - she LOVES it! Never seen her so excited about dry food.
I left a message at 8am- no reply .... I left a message at 9am- no reply .... I then called to no answer-twice- at 10am.... I called again at 1pm and finally he picked up. I was excited about the prices and that they did a pick up service.
Unfortunately he said a 4pm pick up and then never came. He pushed to later but again, never came. He said he got caught in traffic and was dropping off other dogs. Sounded to me like he really didn't have time from the get go but said yes anyway. I was so upset. Our dog was itching like crazy and she needed immediate relief. He said let's do tomorrow....
The following morning I texted him asking what time he could do today..... no reply!!! Very frustrating dealing with a company with lack of communication & organizational skills.
I'd love to use him as his pick up services and prices seem great but right now I don't feel confident in this company at all.
Jaime is AMAZING! Not only does he come pick up your dog and drop him off after, but he spends a full day taking them on hikes and other activities and letting them run around and play with other dogs. Darwin really loved his day out and came home clean, happy and exhausted! Jaime is the best solution to a personal-touch, cage-free, activity-driven doggie day care - I will definitely use him again and again!
Jamie has groomed my pup Chewy twice now and gives him the most badass / fun cut he's ever had: full body mohawk. He picks up Chewy, has him for hours and returns a nicely groomed pup. He keeps me up-to-date on progress all the while too.
I've also boarded Chewy with Jamie or had him come walk Chewy and you won't find anyone else as flexible, affordable and great with the pups (he also pupsits my roommate's dog).
You can tell Jamie genuinely loves the pups he cares for / spends time with so if you're in the area, give him a try!
I've used Jaime for over a year now when I'm either out of town or need someone to walk my Mastiff puppy Zen. He is very kind and I like the way he treats the dogs he takes care of. My X-boyfriend had a really dog aggressive bulldog and Jaime was able to take him for walks and handle him without a problem.
I really like that he takes photos of the dogs he walks so you can see where he's at and how happy the dogs are if you follow him on twitter or Instagram. I would recommend Jaime if you want someone you can trust and who treats the dogs with love and kindness. Every time Zen sees Jaime she goes nuts and gets super happy, that's how I know for a fact he treats her well and is very loving with her.
I am not sure why Yelp removed my review... Here it is again!
Jaime is truly Bernie's 2nd best friend. Jaime does an awesome job on our doggie. Not only does he make him look awesome, but he makes him relaxed and comfortable for his bath and grooming. We get compliments on his grooming every time we walk him! Jaime is the best!

Bowie was so tired at the end of the day! It was perfect, he went for a hike and then got a bath. I got him back smelling like delicious coconut and suer sleepy. Perfect day!
Also I got a great deal thanks to Yelp!
So it was a win for my doggy and me last sunday :)
I have had poodles for 15 years. I have NEVER, in all that time, encountered a groomer, good or bad, who was unaware of the meaning of "poodle face" or "poodle cut," so it never occurred to me to confirm with Jaime that he understood what I was asking for when he was grooming my toy poodle, Teddy.
This is a poodle face:
This is Teddy's face, after Jaime groomed him:
I've had to have Teddy's entire topknot cut off so it will grow back in to be the same length on top of his head and above his eyes, as it is supposed to be. This growth takes quite a long time.
Make sure you are certain your groomer does know what you are asking for before allowing ANY hair to be cut or today's bargain could be tomorrow's nightmare. Have photographs if you are in doubt.
Ok, I want to start by saying that I have tried dozens of groomers and walkers in Los Angeles, and always wind up disappointed one way or another. Jamie came highly recommended from a friend, so I figured I would give it a go.
Having been to several groomers and dog salons with horrible experiences, Beau (my toy poodle) has some anxiety about bath-time. Jamie is literally made of magic. He was so friendly and knowledgeable, and an obvious true animal lover. Beau loved him so much that he seemed pretty convinced this was play time, rather than bath time. Fine by me!
I got the "Bob Marley" package, because it seemed interesting and I had to know what it was all about. AMAZING!!! Love the paw massage, such a great idea!
You can see the tenderness and detail Jamie pays to grooming when he's done. If you've ever owned a poodle, you know their hair is nearly impossible to manage. Beau stayed soft for days afterward, which almost never happens.
Best part...they offer dog walking! I work A LOT, so it is hard for me to always have the time to get Beau out and about. He is small, and extremely high-energy, so hikes and walks are necessary daily. He has joined the gang on hikes twice now, and always comes home happy and super exhausted. Makes our time together so much easier, and I can have a guilt-free work day. I love that there are pictures tweeted throughout his adventures. It lets me be sure he is in good hands, really getting quality exercise (which has been a problem with other walkers), is enjoying himself and being social.
Hands-down, best experience I've had in Los Angeles.
Jamie at Rock N Roll Doggy is such a sweet a warm dog groomer. My puppy Teddy was given the royal treatment - the pick up and drop off service really helped during an extremely busy work week. And Teddy's hair cut was the cutest one he has ever gotten. Thanks Jaime! Happy to be a new client!

Jaime is kind and really cares about your dogs. He will take the time needed to make sure the cut is just right. He'll also come right to your house, to avoid unnecessary stress at the groomer's or to even make it easier on you. (If preferred, he can also take your dogs to his salon.)
It's obvious Jaime loves dogs, which is a major plus.
First to Review
For whatever reason, Yelp delted this review my son, Banjo wrote for Rock & Roll Doggy. Here's his profile BTW if you wish to friend him: banjoellis.yelp.com. But in his words... check out what he had to say about his favorite grooming spot.
"I'm a starving artist. I sing and I've shown up in a music video here and there and the occasional modeling gig. But I haven't, you know, "made it". I'm pretty broke a lot of the time so finding a groomer I can afford - who isn't a butcher - is pretty important to me.
I don't know anywhere a scruffy little guy like me can get a full spa treatment (i.e. bath - full Shampoo, conditioning and massage, brush and hand drying with blow-out, ear cleaning, that butt-gland thing I hate to mention and nail clipping) for $35. I've also never been anywhere so cool that their menu reads like the Hard Rock Cafe's with things like, "The Rockabilly Bath Special" and "The Bob Marley Package".
But most importantly, my new buddy Jaime is not only the raddest groomer in town, but the nicest. With the most sensitive hands and kind heart he gets the essentials done. But it's the banter and fun and playtime we get too that sets this joint apart from a lot of the other, more expensive, cookie-cutter, rush-you-out-the-door joints I've been to.
Listen up my furry (and scaly too) brothers and sisters... you want the best and most affordable grooming experience in town, go see Jaime at Rock & Roll Doggy. You won't regret it.
Three woofs for Rock & Roll Doggy, yeah!! Woof! Woof!! Woof!!!"

I really do recommend this service! Jaime came and picked my two little pomeranians up from my house took them on a dog walk gave them baths (tweeting photos of them all the way ) and brought them back later that day so soft and fluffy! I was really impressed. Don't think I will be dropping them off at the dog groomers again anytime soon;)
We love Jamie! He is very trustworthy, has a super awesome attitude, gives great advice on dogs and is so great with our dog, Penni. Penni loves to go on walks and to the dog park with Jamie - and really looks forward to seeing him. I can tell you that hiring Jamie will be a great decision for you and your pet - as you know the job will get done and your dog will be in great hands.
Really great service! Jaime actually came an hour early which was fantastic! And he did a wonderful job with my 10 year old 110 lb. Bouvier who has awful arthritis. My little yorkie also looked great. Both had a great coconut bath and their fur is super soft and smells great now! Will definitely have him come again to groom my boys! Totally worth it!
We have been using Jaime for close to a year. He does a great job. Very flexible in scheduling. He grooms and baths our two dogs at our house which is incredibly convenient. His prices will beat or equal most places. He offers pickup to and from grooming and electronic payment w/ Square which is useful and safe. To top it off he is a great guy who is friendly and kind to people and animals.
