The Paw Pad Grooming showers pets with both warm water and affection during its myriad fur-styling services. The staff creates a serene environment for its four-legged guests by treating one dog at a time, scrubbing down pelts and snipping new 'dos while they put pooches at ease. They use eco-friendly products to gussy up coats, and offer complimentary nail trims or mani-pedis in the colors of the client's favorite Iditarod team. For pups in need of special sessions, medicated shampoo, de-skunking baths, and aloe treatments can alleviate skin stressors. The staff emphasizes that their job is just as much about health as it is about looking chic on walks—grooming can result in sleeker pelts and a reduced likelihood of ailments such as fleas or dandruff.
The grooming salon is also a playpen for well-socialized dogs, who can cavort in the daycare area while they wait for their owners to pick them up. Appointments range between one hour and four hours, and employees can both retrieve and drop-off their canine patrons for additional fees.:m]]
BB's Grooming & Boutique offers in-store grooming services as well as schedules visits to homes and offices to groom pets in the comfort of their own space. The mobile grooming team brings shampoo and clippers to pooches of all sizes, cleaning their coats and keeping their fur fluffy and trimmed inside their grooming van. Because a number of pets suffer from periodontal disease, the certified groomers can also perform dental cleanings to prevent getting fido fitted for dentures because of excessive tooth and oral decay.
Nestled into 116 wooded acres, A Cowboy Town preserves a slice of the Wild West east of the Mississippi. The owner conceived of his idea when he had a sudden memory from childhood of watching a Wild West gunfight in a similar show in Florida; thus, A Cowboy Town was born. It turned out he wasn't alone in his interests, and A Cowboy Town began to draw crowds of children both young and old with its comedy gunfight show, trail rides through the valley, and activities, including canoeing and fishing for cowboy boots on Kickapoo Lake. The town takes visitors back in time as they interact with townspeople who rove the grounds in period dress, alongside live musical performers, who strum guitars and pluck banjos in cowboy fashion for the crowds every Saturday. Guests can saunter into the Rattlesnake Saloon—which can be fully stocked with adult beverages for private parties–for a cold sarsaparilla or to try their hand at poker, or head to the stables to bestride a horse with a gentle demeanor.
A Cowboy Town is dedicated completely to hosting all-ages, family-friendly activities, and the owner considers a repeat visit the highest compliment. The office manager Kitti recalls her favorite customer reaction: "They [said they] were going to bring their whole family out the next weekend, all 25 people. And they did! People always leave our place with smiles on their faces and they tell their friends and come back over and over."
Inside The Groomery, Christy Lynn lavishes her clients with manicures, blueberry facials, and the occasional belly rub. Fueled by extensive training and a passion for all things canine, she transforms dog grooming into an art composed of hairstyling, massage therapy, and a hint of fashion design. During basic baths, she ushers pups to a Bath Master system that lathers fur with a choice of shampoo and melts away tension with pulses of water. To make tails wag with glee, she selects a tearless shampoo that complements each skin type and coat texture. After the sudsing has concluded, Christy Lynn accents the dog's natural beauty with a jaunty bandana, bow, or powdered wig. For pooches seeking a full makeover, she can brush teeth, brush and trim fur, scrub paw pads, or file nails into a manageable shape.
