Photographers. Chefs. Party specialists. While that may seem like a potpourri of talents, each staff member at Pet Care & Catering contributes to the company’s many pet care services, which range from snapping pictures of special events to walking pets midday. But they're at their most creative when combining their skills to put on birthday parties for four-legged family members. Each event comes with a special cake for dogs or cats, party hats, treats, and a bandanna for the birthday pet that helps them dress up despite their lack of thumbs. Outside of celebrations, staff caretakers also take on duties that include caring for pups and watching over cats while owners are away.
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.

At Lifting the Burden Errand & Concierge Service, staff members free up clients’ time and energy by tackling unwanted household tasks.

Thanks to their easy-to-use online scheduling system, assistants can also devote their efforts to more time-intensive tasks such as event planning or relocation services.
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.
