VIPuppy Spa treats canines to human-grade comfort and amenities. During daycare, staffers separate dogs into groups based on age, size, and disposition for outdoor playtime, then supervise the play area to ensure none of the pups gets cheated out of his or her poker winnings. After a full day of play, dogs go home with their owners or drift off to sleep in a climate-controlled room as soothing music plays. The facility stays open 24 hours a day every day of the year, so owners can find a happy home for their dogs even during holidays or mass feline revolutions.
VIPuppy also beautifies furry friends with grooming services ranging from a hydro-massaging bath and coat conditioning to nail trimming and tooth brushing. Some of the services even deliver the pampering you might expect at a day spa—aromatherapy shampoos, facial scrubs, and applications of OPI’s special dogs-only nail product, Pawlish. Cats tired of barking for attention can also benefit from VIPuppy's grooming services; a cat groomer with 30 years of experience trims coats and clips nails for felines as well.
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.
Word of Jesse Brezina's dog walking prowess spread quickly, and soon Jesse found himself with a viable business on his hands. He's pulled together a passionate staff of dog lovers to take clients' four-legged friends on neighborhood jaunts. Staffers walk just one dog at a time, so owners rest assured that their pups' leashes aren't being tangled with a stranger's. The dog-walking staff stay overnight if needed, or escort pets to appointments with the groomer, vet, or interior decorator. Afterward, walkers text owners with an update on their pets' well-being.
The team at Paw Prints New York is composed of animal lovers who take fastidious care of four-legged friends while their owners are away. Supplying everything from dog walks to at-home play sessions, the Paw Prints’ crew builds trusting relationships with pets to ensure they’re safe and sated. The animal attendants can even digitize their services, providing virtual walks so owners can check in on pets via Skype or Facebook.
