Rinse, lather, repeat. If only it were that easy. Most pet owners are intimately acquainted with the perils of grooming their best friends, but hope has arrived in the form of Bandit's Bathhouse and Pet Grooming Salon. Though "salon" might sound like a strange word to use when talking about dog groomers, Bandit's lives up to its lofty title. When they aren't outfitting pomeranians with hair curlers, the groomers trim pooches' nails, and blow-dry their freshly cleaned coats. If owners want in on the fun, they can try the DIY service, which lets them get down and dirty as they groom their pet on an adjustable table.
A graduate of Animal Behavior College, Mark Forrest Patrick espouses the benefits of positive reinforcement when training dogs. Using this approach, Patrick helps owners form long-lasting bonds with their four-legged companions as well as diminish bad behaviors, such as refusing to heel or illegally hiding an ace card in its coat. Rewarding pets for their good behavior can also help them learn skills in class more willingly, such as retrieving and walking on a leash. In addition to teaching dogs, Patrick also imparts owners with knowledge on how best to interact with their pets, leading to a more harmonious relationship in the home or on the Iditarod course.
Christopher Robins Pet Care nurtures dogs and cats through daycare and boarding, grooming, training, and pet photography services. During dog boarding, each visiting pet receives a customized schedule, allowing older dogs more one-on-one attention and relaxation while more energetic dogs scamper through the facilities in group play sessions. Dog daycare similarly customizes playtime with three separate play areas. Cats and dogs visiting for grooming sessions receive a bath, treatment with shampoo and conditioner, and a haircut.
