Though grooming prices depend on size, breed, and condition of the fur, the expert staff at Walter's will ensure satisfaction, meticulously giving your pup a breed-specific cut, puppy cut, show cut, or exotic cut to your liking. They'll give dogs a gentle nail trim ($10), bath ($50–$90), or full grooming package ($70–$120), including shampoo, fluff dry, style, ear cleaning, nail trim, and more. If you're busy painting the walls or showing your home to prospective buyers, drop the dog off at daycare for $45 or utilize overnight boarding services ($55 dogs, $40 cats). Walter's will even help you show some love for your furry friend with a pet-friendly birthday party ($95). If you use today's Groupon for any service under $65, you'll be given a credit of the remaining balance to use toward the next visit.
If your pet is tired of staying home during the workweek, either workshop his resume or ease his mind with a relaxing day at Pooches Sport and Spa. The 2,500-square-foot facility hosts climate-controlled play areas, which are carefully partitioned for the safety of pups and big dogs alike. To maintain your pet's overall cleanliness and safety, the center also features epoxy seamless flooring that wards off bacteria and an advanced air filtration system to vaporize lingering odors. Filling the role of dog's best friend, the collective caring staff at Pooches Sport and Spa provides continued surveillance throughout the stay, along with interactive engagement during playtime. On the off chance that a well-fluffed poodle causes your pup's heart to beat wildly, an experienced veterinarian is always on call.
Since dog is man's best friend, then dog (and possibly cat) deserves man's best grooming, toys, apparel, ink cartridges, 3D glasses, and more. Today's Groupon gets you $75 worth of premier pet-pampering, hairstyling (dye your puppy screaming pink if you like), toys, and pet accessories at The Salty Paw, located in the Financial District. The downtown pet center, featured in Time Out New York and New York magazine, is a luxury oasis for the stress-ridden pet worried about the college application process or an impending marriage.
In 1990, John Ziegler hired a dog walker to take his 8-month-old yellow lab Merembe out on regular walks. The plan was to escort the rambunctious pup to Central Park, where she could enjoy fresh air and social time around other dogs and people. Just to make sure he was getting what he paid for, John followed the dog walker—and discovered that Merembe spent the entire hour cooped up in a tiny apartment while the walker went on errands. The indignation that any dog owner would feel at this discovery is what prompted John to found Biscuits & Bath, an all-encompassing dog-care company that strives for transparency, knowledge, and compassion in all they do.
A bounty of doggy knowledge backs every service at Biscuits & Bath, whether it's grouping dogs by size and temperament at daycare to balance safety and fun, or pairing groomers' image-enhancing brush-outs with checks for ticks, ear infections, and unusual basketball ability. True to the company's roots, each dog walker is bonded, insured, and thoroughly trained to take beloved friends on a daily romp. Dogs are kept safe from big-city hazards by donning two slip collars, a climb-spec harness, and a reinforced nylon leash, allowing the company to boast nearly one million incident-free walks in 2011. On-site veterinarian services give pups a checkup incentive with the center's play-filled environment, and overnight boarding services keep timid dogs at ease with constant supervision and flexibility with special requirements.
Like many other only children, Saran longed for a little brother or sister when she was growing up. She never got a sibling, but when she was 15, her mother did surprise her with a dog, Kiki. Kiki quickly became the sibling Saran never had, and even when she left her native country of Guyana to attend college in Florida, she never forgot the bond she'd built with her dog. Saran went on to earn an MBA, later ditching her corporate career to start her own business?a pet grooming and boarding facility named in honor of her now late canine companion.
Kiki's Pet Spa & Boutique hasn't just been a comfort to Saran's animal-loving spirit, but also to other pet owners dealing with socially or physically challenged pets. That's because the compassionate staff isn't simply grooming and minding animals. During boarding and daycare sessions, they're encouraging the pets' social development and helping both owners and pets adapt to the setbacks of injuries or degenerative conditions. Staffers can also come to your home for dog walking and cat visits, and they can arrange photo shoots or portrait sittings for when your animal is having a good fur day.
