Andy’s Pet Grooming, Day Care and Supplies
Andy Avetis knows dogs. As a boy, he shared his father’s passion for dogs, and ever since then, has spent his life caring for them, showing them and studying them. In September, he opened his fourth store – Andy’s Pet Grooming, Day Care and Supplies – at 1741 Colorado Blvd. in Eagle Rock. “I love the dogs,” he told the Boulevard Sentinel, and they clearly love him, too, judging from the happy pups I observed in the day-care area. / 323-675-1110 / andyspetgrooming.com
