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.
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 Dogs Rule Resort, canines receive the royal treatment while frolicking around indoor and outdoor facilities replete with slides, pools, and toys. Inside, dogs romp around a climate-controlled, 3,000-square-foot play area that can be divided into three rooms, one for each of Lassie’s alter egos. Outside, dogs roam cage-free in a turf-covered, park-like space that showcases baby pools, sprinklers, and misting systems in warm weather. Once pups get tuckered out, they slumber on raised, plush bedding in a cage-free, indoor environment with other dogs of the same size or hatred toward vacuum overlords. Flat-panel TV/DVR systems play soothing music and relaxing images that calm dogs, and webcams capture the pups’ whereabouts so owners can check in on their four-legged friend. In addition to daycare and boarding, dogs can receive dental care, pedicures, or full-service baths at the resort.

Boarding offerings include overnight stays and daycare, with separate facilities for dogs and cats complete with climate control and ample space.
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.
