The close-knit team at Spa 4 Paws promise to treat each canine client as if it were their own pet. To that end, they dry dogs by hand after baths and carefully groom them in spa services that include extensive brushing and "paw-di-cures." During massage sessions, dogs can find relief from stiff muscles and the anxiety caused by their own constant barking. The spa's mobile grooming unit brings its dog-soothing expertise to clients' driveways. Customers can also give back by donating pet food to the spa's pet pantry, which then distributes it to the pets of families in need.
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.
At Doggie Dips and Chips, porcelain, self-service baths; fresh-baked goodies; and playful accessories help bond bipeds with their four-pawed pals. Redwood panels separate tubs of different heights, inviting breeds of varying stature for a safe, nonslip scrub-down, and nontoxic shampoos, oatmeal-based cream rinse, and available aprons outfit owners with everything they need to lead the lathering or direct an impeccably clean, all-dog reenactment of Das Boot ($15 for one pet; $27 for two). Professional dryers save tails from trembling with cold, and the friendly on-site cleanup crews clean each tub between baths to ensure a safe, sanitary shower for each pup.
