Today's Groupon gets you $100 worth of pet products, pet boarding, doggie daycare, dog walks, in-house pet services, or obedience and agility education at Dog Paws 'n Cat Claws University, the paragon of higher learning that The Washingtonian called one of the best dog walkers in DC.
After you open that air-hole dotted gift box and discover that it's a pet rather than the singing cutlery you'd been hoping for, you'll need to stock up on supplies for your adorable Saturnalia puppies and cranky Festivus cats. Today's Groupon to The Dog Shop gets you $50 towards self-service dog washing, toys, grooming, training, and more for $25. Conveniently located in Georgetown, The Dog Shop saves you a trip to the suburbs with a rambunctious boxer in the backseat. Walk your pup to the bright and friendly shop, where employees have been known to play with four-legged customers' bipedal shopping companions.
For many people, pets are a part of the family. So to ensure that the furriest member of your household gets the care it needs, the staff at Dog Gone Walking & Pet Care offer their clients’ pets socialization, exercise, and daily care while their owners are away. Whether simply letting a dog out during the work day, keeping them fed and cared for while owner are on vacation, or taking pets to the vet, the staff work to keep pets happy and healthy without owners having to install that pet door into the refrigerator. While team members visit your house, they can also provide miscellaneous services ranging from bringing in mail to running necessary errands.
Named one of the best pet vendors in Virginia by Washingtonian magazine, Becky’s Pet Care deploys a loyal team of bonded, licensed, and insured caretakers to bestow animals with basic care, daily exercise, and affection. A meet-and-greet session lets caretakers introduce themselves to pet owners and their four-legged friends in an effort to establish trust and an understanding of the pet’s unique needs. During a 30-minute visit (a $20.99 value) dogs, cats, and small animals get precious pet playtime and a feeding, plus a walk, litter-box or cage cleaning, potty break, and medication before caretakers fill out a report card detailing the nature of visits and whether your pup is a pleasure to have in class. The pet-care professionals will also collect your mail, alternate interior lights, and open and close draperies so you don't have to fill your home with life-size cut-outs of Michael Jordan to make it look like someone is home.
