Black and bubblegum hues flow in retro pinstripe patterns throughout Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe, where dedicated groomers carefully cleanse and style dogs of all breeds and sizes. The team treat their canine clients with upscale products such as Apple & Oats conditioner and South Bark blueberry facials. In addition to full-service and do-it-yourself cleansing stations, Bow Wow Beauty Shoppe has an in-store boutique and a pet hotel for small dogs. The boutique features accessories by Juicy Couture, Fluff, Puppia, Merrick, and Gooby, and the pet hotel indulges miniature guests with 400-thread-count pillow beds, a large, fenced backyard, and room service that delivers breakfast along with the morning squeaky newspaper.
Though dogs might be colorblind, it's likely they will find comfort in the bright and colorful private suites at The Golden Paw. The boarding kennels are each coated in fresh, natural colors that remind canine visitors of healthy lawns, and also feature amenities such as flat-screen TVs, plush bedding, and web cameras so owners can make sure their dogs are happily eating, playing, and flossing their teeth. In addition to providing pets with a little rest and relaxation, the team provides full-service grooming and obedience training, and recently added daycare to its list of services.
Animal devotee Claudia Cannon owns Furry Friends Dog and Cat Grooming, a neighborhood beauty shop for shaggy creatures, particularly dogs and cats. Cannon is something of a cat whisperer inside the clean space, as even the feistiest felines seem to fall under her spell as she grooms their coats. Services run the gamut from flea baths, nail trimming and deshedding treatments to aromatic baths and tick removal. All grooming products are natural and devoid of harsh chemicals, so there’s no worry about the health of a loved family pet at Furry Friends. And for those unfortunate run-ins with neighborhood skunks, Cannon offers a surprisingly effective odor-removing remedy. Best of all, Cannon also runs a pet sitting business and offers cat boarding, which is surprisingly rare. Prices are reasonable at Furry Friends, so it’s possible to pamper your pet without spending too pretty a penny.
