Whiskers Resort & Pet Spa is a luxury pet care center for overnight boarding, grooming, daycare and training. Our goal is to recreate a home environment for our four legged guests while offering high caliber pet grooming and styling services.
Family-owned by local canine enthusiasts, ShamPooches gives dog-people who think they're people everything they need to wash their pooch without the worry of cleaning up afterward. Each 30-minute self-service dog wash includes unlimited house shampoo from the ShamPooches' preferred Tropiclean and Nature's Specialties brands, as well as washcloths, ear cleaner, a rubber scrubber, and a rake. An elevated tub accessible from all sides relieves owners from straining. After clearing the grime from their lovable mutts, owners dry them off with provided towels as the ShamPooches staff cleans up the wash area.
After more than 20 years of bathing and grooming dogs and cats, the experts at Paw-pular Trends have developed an arsenal of techniques for working with all types of animal personalities. The team handles temperamental pets tactfully while washing coats, trimming nails, flushing ears, and brushing undercoats, and they accentuate refreshed animals with a bandanna and animal-safe fragrance. In addition to pampering clients' pets, the team members provide 24-hour boarding services. Staff members ensure that long-term visitors eat at the times to which they are accustomed, and receive up to five walks each day along the nearby river, allowing the animals to burn off energy and reflect on the natural splendor enough to compose a haiku written in paw prints.
At The Paragon School of Pet Grooming, textbooks walk in on all fours. More than 150 pets come into the school each week, which means students get ample hands-on practice as they master bathing and brushing or work their way to becoming full pet stylists. The school's instructors teach how to work with cats and dogs, purebreds and mixed breeds. Pet owners also benefit from the school's dog- and cat-grooming services, which are available to the general public.
Pooches Dog Wash is a full-service grooming salon that permits conscientious hound-handlers to give their furry comrades a sudsy dousing. Don a provided apron and combat begrimed pelts at a self-service wash station, engulfing coats with warm water and deep-cleansing shampoo before warm air-dryers and towels render coats drip-free. Comb out frizzy fur and finish with a sprinkle of canine cologne to muzzle the aroma of wet mutt and prompt interspecies sniffing at dinner parties. Pooches Dog Wash’s staff members clean the stations after each pup laundering, and are available to help with questions or provide stairs for getting apprehensive leapers into the elevated tubs.
The canine experts at PetVilla believe that blueberry facials and CPR aren’t just for two-legged creatures. The staff trains in dog-first-aid courses, ensuring the safety of their animal guests, who visit for play-filled days of doggy daycare or stay overnight under 24-hour watch. While boarding, the pooches sleep in lodging dens with cots and join daycare guests for frolicking in specialized groups. Senior canines relax on their own, whereas puppies join each other to romp about and prank call Clifford the Big Red Dog.
PetVilla also pampers its four-legged customers with grooming services. These range from basic ear cleaning and gland expression to luxurious facials and fur styling. The groomers have even been known to give pooches green mohawks before St. Patrick’s day or walks through a punk-rock festival.
