Kennel Creek Pet Resort caters to canines with supervised daycare, a luxurious grooming spa, and inclusive boarding services. Owners can access the facility's in-kennel camera system with their smartphones or computers to keep up to speed on their dogs' day and see if Fido bluffs during intense games of poker. Furry friends enjoy the fresh air outside in a fenced-in yard during supervised playtime, and snooze in private suites as attentive staffers check in on them every half-hour. The immaculate, full-service dog salon offers head-to-toe services for all breeds, and the standard grooming package includes a thorough bath, cut or shave, eye and ear cleaning, and nail trim.
With a degree in fashion and a desire to carry on the name of her recently-deceased shih tzu, Tashi Tai, Christine Gregory started creating a line of fluffy dog collars and selling them under the name of her beloved pet. Over the years, with the help of her mother and a new shih tzu named Myko, Christine expanded her wholesale business into a full-fledged pet boutique and spa. It's here that she not only stocks the shelves with gourmet treats and designer apparel, but also pampers pups with spa treatments such as massage therapy, facials, and a full menu of grooming services. Dogs can even take part in half- or full-day day-play sessions, where they safely socialize and pontificate in groups separated by size and temperament. While her Queen of Paws Boutique & Spa may cater to high-class pets, Christine's heart goes out to canines of all walks of life. She takes care to donate apparel, food, and funds to shelters and rescues that help find homes for abandoned dogs.
Despite the advent of the dog door and the decline of mercenary dogcatchers, pups can't be left to their own devices when it comes time for a walk. The staffers of MuttMamaKC LLC step in when owners are unavailable, sparing homes from unhappy accidents and pets from missed feedings. Not only does the team handle regularly scheduled services, but they can be called upon to fill in during such emergencies as attending a late meeting, running into car trouble, or forgetting where you live.
Tammie Howe insists that it is possible to teach an old dog new tricks. In fact, at Behave Dog Training, she's designed a class specifically for older dogs that need to break bad habits, such as jumping on people, pulling on the leash, or begging to stay up late to watch Dog Whisperer. With more than 10 years of working with families and their canine companions, she often works with owners who are at their wit's end with problem behavior and relishes how pleased they are when they learn how to effect changes in their pups.
The family that owns and operates Honey B's Grooming dotes on their own dogs at home. When customers bring in dogs to be groomed, the family treats each canine with the same love and attention that they lavish on their own pets. They wash and brush fur, clean ears and teeth, clip nails, and express glands. Patrons can also opt for flea treatments or oatmeal baths for sensitive skin.
