Justin Bennett appreciates artistic challenges, such as turning a poodle into a blooming tree. He accomplishes this feat with nothing but scissors, brown dye, vibrant flower decorations, and a knack for primping his four-footed clients. The petal-specked pooch is one of the more daring examples of his grooming endeavors—more often he leaves dogs simply clean and chic using a host of all-natural products. Aromatherapy and hydro massages put his canine guests at ease before shampoos and conditioners scrub through their coats, and a brush tackles any lingering knots. His services often include a nail trim, pad cleanup, and a new hairstyle, crafted to suit the dog's breed or the owner's request.
Six years of experience with all kinds of breeds has enabled Justin to gussy up most any canine. He strives to imbue Bath & Doggie Works with a spa-like environment, pampering each dog with the same meticulous care he would award his own pet. His customized treatments can even address individual quirks, including shampoo for rampant shedders and a calming, plant-derived liquid for nervous pups, who won't stop trying to twiddle the thumbs they don't have.
Biscuit's Dog Pawlour transports the human comforts of a salon to the canine world. Within private rooms, self-service wash stations let owners use shampoo and brushes to help their pups look like the day they first hatched. Professional groomers can also tag in for more in-depth services. Biscuit's Dog Pawlour's crew also delights furry family members with toys, organic treats, and food.
