The American Dog Club connects dog lovers with puppies looking for a new a home. The organization works strictly with USDA-certified and licensed private breeders, who follow strict regimens for the care and feeding of puppies. Once a pup leaves the breeder and comes into the Dog Club's care, the pet sitters provide an equally intense level of care for each pooch. They feed them doggy milk, baby food, and vitamin-enriched water. They provide them with toys and blankets, and socialize them with other puppies in cage-free play environments. If a puppy lingers with them for too long, they immediately put him or her up for adoption; they like to see their animals land in loving homes, no matter what.
Of course, caring for an animal is a long-term commitment, and they provide services to help out pet owners regardless of their dog's age. They sell a range of specialty toys and foods meant to keep dogs healthy and they groom dogs of any size, trimming nails and shampooing fur.
Dogs' grooming needs are as individualized as people's and vary greatly based on breed, size, and fur length. The certified groomers at Jessica's Dog Grooming take each dog's needs into account, custom tailoring bathing and grooming packages. The staff trims nails and cleans teeth, removes mats from long fur, performs deshedding treatments for short-haired canines, and restores sheen to dogs' coats with shampoo and conditioner. A bow or bandanna put the finishing touches on a pooch's day at the salon.
