This grooming center pampers pets with a number of services including hypoallergenic baths, teeth cleanings, and nail trims. Experienced technicians use natural products such as black-primrose shampoo and blueberry facial creams to condition coats, and perform all scrubbings and blow-dries by hand. Grooming packages such as the Puppy’s First Groom combine a number of services, and customers can request add-ons such as de-matting. Oh My Dog Grooming Spa creates a soothing environment with aromatherapy scents, and each furry visitor walks out sporting a fashionable bow or bandana.
Whether outside on a sunny patio dotted with crimson umbrellas, or inside the low-key dining room, visitors to Mike's Lucky Dog chow on dogs, burgers, and beers. Grill masters charbroil the meats before loading them with toppings including fresh onions and tomatoes, tangy relish, or ladles of chili and nacho cheese. Pours from rotating taps have recently included Flying Bison Bisonfest, Southern Tier IPA, and Great Lakes Eliot Ness.
The slight breeze one feels upon entering A Gentle Touch Pet Care Services, Inc.’s breed-standard grooming facility is generated not by fans, but by feverishly wagging tails. Dogs who find themselves in the certified groomers’ care have ample reasons for excitement, starting with a hydromassage bath that washes mud from paws and undersides with soothing jets. Owner Charlene Hibbs watches over the proceedings, drawing on knowledge gleaned from her advanced pet-sitting courses at A Pet’s World Academy in Loomis, California, to gently coax away stresses and existential crises triggered by endless, meaningless games of fetch.
Charlene and her fellow groomers tend to cats as well as dogs, with spa packages that include scented facial scrubs, aromatherapy treatments, and hair conditioners designed to prevent itching and shedding. In-home cat-sitting services include at least half an hour of feline care so that cats don’t have to face traumatic travel experiences, such as explaining why they can’t buckle their seatbelts properly.
Christopher Robins Pet Care nurtures dogs and cats through daycare and boarding, grooming, training, and pet photography services. During dog boarding, each visiting pet receives a customized schedule, allowing older dogs more one-on-one attention and relaxation while more energetic dogs scamper through the facilities in group play sessions. Dog daycare similarly customizes playtime with three separate play areas. Cats and dogs visiting for grooming sessions receive a bath, treatment with shampoo and conditioner, and a haircut.
