If the new puppy or kitty is ready for its closeup, Mutty Paws Pet Styling can guide it through the entire process. They can clean up coats, trim nails to help keep paws clean and healthy, trim ears to help prevent ear infections, and brush their teeth to thwart gum disease. They also ensure that pets are comfortable during playful photo sessions. Their services don't stop at puppy pics; boarding and training are also available.
Since opening their doors in mid-December 2011, friendly staffers at Happy Dog Hotel and Spa have welcomed pooches into a wag-worthy space outfitted with deluxe hotel suites, private courtyard, and capacious play zone. Owners can take a complete tour of the modern, brand-new space to view its shined wood floors, textured wall coverings, and trendy accents. Canines stay the night in suites ranging from 20 to 48 square feet, and all boarders enjoy soft blankets, two meals a day plus scrambled eggs with breakfast, and five walks to the private courtyard. Caring staffers treat dogs like their own, dishing out treats, toys, and medication brought from home at no extra charge. Owners can opt to let their boarding pooches release pent-up energy with romps and heated Scrabble matches in the bustling daycare area, where the attentive staffers ensure safe, friendly play. Visiting pups also can unwind in the spa, where staff members shampoo, brush, and clip coats while a stereo plays the soothing sounds of bellies being rubbed.
Hedgehog Hannah travels to birthday parties, scouting events, and family gatherings to regale audiences with her collection of animals, providing an experience that is equal parts exciting and edifying. The assortment comprises critters from all over the world, including an alligator, a snake, and sugar glider. Humans have the chance to pet and play with the animals and play trivia games for which they may win prizes. Party packages are also available, and they may include a personally wrapped birthday gift, cake and pizza, or the chance to dress Hedgehog Hannah's chihuahua, Pablo, in costumes and accessories. Concerned parents need not fret, as each animal is trained to stay as calm and well-behaved as a Pilgrim practicing yoga.
Puptown’s canine coddlers offer boarding and washing services for floppy-eared family members seven days a week. At the East 96th Street location's dog wash, pet owners can de-grime dirty coats and bring back a signature “new dog” scent. Canines enter large, stainless-steel tubs via a dog-friendly ramp or grasshopper-like leap, with owners using convenient spray nozzles to wash away remnants of crashed pizza parties. Puptown supplies dog-washing necessities including shampoo and conditioner, towels, and a jowl-flopping dryer. For an additional $5, guests can upgrade to the deluxe wash and use the facility's de-shedding solutions, ear wash, and toothbrushes and paste.
