A division of Your Pet Staff, Whisker Washers Mobile Grooming's mobile grooming trailers rush to pet owners' homes for comprehensive on-location service. Animal-loving cleaners wash away cats' and dogs' accumulated grime with shampoos and conditioners made with natural ingredients such as aloe and oatmeal. Grooming services range from conventional ear cleaning and haircuts to more exotic treatments, such as Pawdicures, in which the staff treats dogs' paws to vitamin-E cream or their nails to vibrant polish—just in time for the first day of obedience school.
A lurcher-greyhound mix named Oscar, A-Animal's resident dog, ambles around the office as milling technicians, groomers, and four vets consult with visiting canines. Dogs can study wall-mounted Texas A&M University degrees as animal doctors pore over their furry hides in routine checkups or perform surgery. After frolicking in the sunlight, overnight guests and day campers can roll around their own 60-square-foot dog run. Customers can check on their pup with A-Animal Clinic and Boarding Kennel's webcam, watching as meticulously groomed, cane-twirling dogs emerge from the clinic's salon and spa to visit one of two outdoor playing areas.
Melissa from Melissa's Prestigious Pawz has a deep connection with companion animals. She understands how personality affects behavior in dogs and uses that knowledge to teach them how to be their best through canine good-citizen training and basic obedience. In addition to training, she provides grooming services, including cuts, shampoos, and ear cleanings, as well as extras, such as nail polish and body sprays. Melissa also happily watches over dogs as they roam off the leash throughout indoor and outdoor spaces during doggy-daycare sessions or overnight stays.
At Poochie Parlor, a groomer with more than seven years of experience and a lifetime of love for furry friends unleashes quality products on snarled pelts. Concentrating on a swift but thorough primping for dogs of all shapes and sizes, she begins by bathing and brushing pups. She then flushes filth from ears and bottoms, capping off makeovers by trimming nails and fur according to owners' specifications or whichever style is hottest on the sidewalks this season.

Wild smiles dance across the faces of pups and humans alike at K9 Kountry. Sunlight streams across the grassy lawn as dogs of all sizes frolic in the outdoor runs or in their own dog yards, tiring themselves out by playing with a variety of toys or gathering to put on a performance of Othello. As the sun sets, the pups careen indoors for a warm meal of freshly cooked meals and snacks, such as chicken or hot dogs, before hunkering down for the night in the climate-controlled shelter. The staff at K9 Kountry takes care of mutts of all sizes and temperaments with daycare, overnight boarding, and basic obedience training courses that focus on ensuring communication between dogs and their owners.
