This is what one happy client has to say about Small Dog Daycare:
"UCLA provides the best dog daycare around town. They pick up and deliver your dog and you know your dog is in good hands because they always have a trained professional working with the dogs.

My dog, Alex, is so excited when he is picked up and when I’m at work I can relax knowing that my dog is in a safe and playful environment. I trust the owners, Andrea and Linda. They are smart and thoughtful and experienced with everything dogs: behaviors, training, and even tricks. I feel so lucky and privileged to have found such a great dog provider in my neighborhood."
