I have had all of my cars smogged at Smog Dog.  It is close to where I live and I like to support small, locally owned and operated business.  Every experience has been pleasant, and fast too.
My last visit I brought my seven month old AND my two and a half year old.  Needless to say I was pleased to get fast, friendly service on that day.
What I did not expect came in the mail a few days after getting my car smogged.  A package address to “Little Boy” with a hot wheel car inside and a note from the owner, Daniel Boyd.  My son had left the toy car in the lobby.
That is what I call “CUSTOMER SERVICE”.  Most people would not take the time or pay the expense to do such a thing.  My son was very happy to get his car back and I will reccommend Smog Dog to everyone I can.

Thank you Daniel Boyd.  You are an outstanding business owner.  Keep up the good work.

Nothing but Praise for the service that Daniel gave me at Smog Dog in Palm Desert just behind where the Post Office is located on Hovely.  He got my Toyota Rav in and out, gave super advice and best of all, for a small fee supplied me with my new 2015 sticker so that I did Not have to go to DMV.

Been smogging my car here for the past few years, and I must say, I’m always treated right. Service is always prompt, professional, and done in a timely matter. I’ve always been helped out by Daniel; he’s a great guy and has always gone above and beyond. Plus, you get to take care of your DMV paperwork there, so no waking up at the crack of dawn to go sit and wait for a number to be called. Definitely worth checking out Smog Dog if you haven’t already!

Been taking my passenger car here for several years.  Got a Jeep recently and Daniel provided exceptional service.  Has always been quick in and out service.
Several of my friends who have taken their cars to Smog Dog also have only good things to say.
I’m a satisfied customer.

My husband and I have been bringing our cars here for years. Daniel the owner is very friendly. Your wait time is usually less than 30 minutes. I recommend smog dog palm desert (corporate way) to my friends. It is one stop service. Saves me a trip to AAA to process the paperwork.

Add me to this impressive list of really happy customers. I bought a 2001 Audi tt and found out it had to be smogged before I could transfer title. I called at 4pm on a Friday to see when I could get in, and Daniel said he closes at 5, and if I could get there before 5pm he’d take me.  Left work and headed straight down, and went to the wrong location. By the time I found the Palm Desert Smog Dog, it was literally 4:59. Daniel greeted me, smogged my car, AND handled the vehicle transfer. Yes, that was an additional $45 but I was happy to pay it…saved me a trip on Saturday to AAA. We have 3 cars in our family, and for me, this is all I need to know about where to go for smog certification.  P.S. I also got to meet the charming French bulldog. And though I didn’t leave any toys behind as one of the other reviewers had, after meeting Daniel I don’t have any problem believing what that reviewer said. I am one who shops and dines based on the service and respect I receive. Daniel’s one of the good guys.
