The husband-and-wife photography duo of Aubree and David Hahn provide moment-capturing services with professional panache. Together they make a practice of using their engaging personalities to lure each individual's essence from within, and then mercilessly capture it on film. Your photo session will include a 60-minute shoot to snap pristine poses of up to four people, so feel sure to invite your most contemplative or snap-happy friends and family members for the revealing session, even if it’s just you, yourself, and your personal poltergeist George. All snapshots from the photo session can be viewed in an online gallery the following day, and your favorite will be made into an 11"x14" print. Or, you can purchase up to three Groupons and combine all of them for one 16"x20" Giclée print and 30% off additional services.
Since their maiden deterging in 1944, Tower Dry Cleaners and Laundry’s purification professionals have been expunging grime and removing rumples from legions of suits, dresses, linens, and more. Drop-off detoxes unshackle slack trousers ($6.95), shirts ($7.35), and sweaters ($7.05) from chronic creases, and plunges into bubbleless bathtubs eradicate dog hair from blazers ($7.95) and two-piece suits ($13.70) after forcing Fido to adhere to the dress code on Take Your Pet to Work Day.
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.
A lifelong dog lover and doting owner of two labradoodles, Dan Thompson knew he didn?t want cages at his doggy daycare; he wanted his charges to play together before heading home happy and calm. So, instead of filling Dog Pawz playNstay with bars and locks, Thompson designed outdoor and indoor play areas where pooches exchange opinions on mailman fashions as they chow on natural food. Canines can spend the night, and owners of either boarding or visiting pets can visit the Dog Pawz playNstay website to log in and watch their pups on a live camera feed. The pet haven also grooms coats and trims toenails, outfits furry companions with leashes and toys, and can ferry them to and from home within a 3-mile radius, sparing pooches the need to figure out how much they should tip cab drivers.
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.
The licensed massage therapist at Ahimsa Healing pulls out every tool in the musculoskeletal toolbox, calling on everything from the popular gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the energy-based healing techniques of Japanese reiki to defeat chronic pain. Visits begin with an intake form, on which clients or enchanted pencils scribble down notes regarding chronic conditions or injuries so that therapists can design a custom pain-relieving treatment. Nimble hands then manipulate muscles, calling upon deep-tissue kneads to offset injuries and craniosacral therapy to reduce headaches caused by accidentally holding your helmet and wearing your jackhammer.
