Dogs trot out of Spot's Spot and Spa stylishly well-groomed, well-rested, or well-fed, depending on their activities in the canine wellness haven. Trained groomers infuse coats with natural shampoos and conditioners before treating dogs to a facial scrub, a nail trim, and a breed-standard or custom cut, each precisely hand-scissored. Overnight stays keep canines in good company with cage-free accommodations, 24-hour supervision, and personal attention from playtime to medicine delivery. In the retail sections, owners peruse a vast array of dog food and treats, including freshly butchered meat (available only at Spot’s 2nd Spot) along with high-quality cat food from Science Diet and Acana. A full stock of doggy wellness aids ranges from vitamins and salves to padded e-collars that prevent dogs from noticing when their chums poke fun at their fashion choices.
Zoom Room?s dog training facilities have one cardinal rule: owners must be present during class. This is because humans need just as much training as their canine companions when building confidence and communication, and it?s important that owners learn the best positive-reinforcement techniques from the knowledgeable staff. Group classes cover topics ranging from general obedience and agility training to more specific needs such as overcoming shyness. Other classes include Urban Herding, where dogs herd exercise balls into soccer goals indoors, Scent Work, where dogs learn to sniff out missing car keys or the TV remote, and Pup-lates, which is geared toward overweight or senior dogs, or those recovering from an injury.
In fact, improving canine social skills is one of Zoom Room?s missions, as evidenced by the regularly hosted fundraiser events and Doggy Disco parties, which give dogs a chance to meet other dogs and expand away from their inner circle of fire hydrants. This combination of training and fun, in addition to the facility?s selection of solution-oriented training gear, natural dog treats, and functional dog accessories, has garnered an array of local and national press.
Poochie's Place pampers dogs with a variety of services in a cage-free environment. Its organic bakery procures all-natural treats from local bakers, who make them free of harmful fillers such as corn, gluten, and grain, and who provide vegan options. The onsite grooming team deep cleans pups with HydroSurge aromatherapy bubble baths and sends them home adorned in bows or bow ties. Dogs also get red-carpet ready with the shop's selection of clothing and leashes.
The roomy pet grooming salon and spa Chez Bow Wow in Northern Liberties aims to make your dog or cat look spiffy without rankling them during the often-unhappy treatment process. The shampoos, cuts, nail clipping and teeth brushing happen on three tables fully visible behind the counter, and all services are done with eco-friendly products. Before and after their sessions, dogs can hang out in a roomy waiting area and cats get large interconnected cages that allow for roaming. Chez Bow Wow welcomes temperamental and special-needs animals as well, and they partner with the local Street Tails Animal Rescue organization to make homeless critters look their best. A selection of grooming tools, shampoos and accessories like pet-odor-eliminating candles are for sale.
During doggy daycare at Dog School, pets play in harmony with as few restrictions as possible. Dogs are never forced to sleep in crates unless they want to. Little dogs can play with big dogs if they like. The staff—all trained in pet first aid and CPR—attentively watches over the laissez-faire playground, tending to each animal's needs and taking dogs on walks alone or in pairs.
