We live in La Jolla and went over to this little store by Kroc Center to buy our 12 year old daughter some skates. While the skates were being heat molded, they put on a video for her to watch. They even had toys for our 2 year old to play with so he didn't get bored while we waited. What a great store and everyone was really friendly and knew all about skating. They also saw my daughter at competition and they remembered us and congratulated her on how well she did. This might be a small store in size, but it has everything skaters need and they are really big on friendliness and making shopping there a great experience! We're going back there to get a Zuca bag for her birthday. We highly recommend you check this store out!

I just found out at Kroc that this place re-opened right across the street! I hated driving all the way up 15 to get my skates sharpened. Welcome back SkateDogz, we missed you!

All the employees were rude and the whole shop was dirty and disorganized. I would not recommend for anyone to go there. I think giving them one star is still giving them to much credit.

SkateDogz was only re-opened less than 4 weeks ago during the Holiday Season, so you must have visited while stocking and deliveries were occurring. The storewide 30-70% Sale may have added to the confusion. SkateDogz is a popular store with skaters, since we are the only store featuring ice skates, equipment and skateboards in the area. If you had a bad experience, we extend our apologies. Fitting skates, professional skate sharpening and assisting customers with putting together a great skateboard take time, which we happily devote to our customers. We value all of our customers' opinions and try to help everyone on an equal basis. It is unfortunate you did not voice your concerns about customer service or any condition of the store while in the store so your concerns could have been properly addressed.
Skate sharpening on the spot, while you wait, for $10! always can count on them being there, being open, and able to get what you need done in a pinch. Also has network to get you specialized hard-to-find gear. Great shop!
