All posh dogs love shopping along Newbury Street – or at least their owners do. But when the pooches get dirty, it’s time to book an appointment at Pawsh Dog Boutique & Salon. Located in the Back Bay, just steps from Newbury Street’s glitz, the trained professionals on staff carefully trim each dog’s nails, clean their ears and even brush their teeth following the full-service grooming. This by-appointment-only salon also sells carry-on bags for small pups, haute collars, stylish jackets, comfortable dog beds, conditioning shampoo and a selection of natural foods, which is helpful for owners with finicky or allergic pets. After all that, your dog will still love the doggie treats on the counter most of all.

Brookline Grooming & Pet Supplies provides a fully equipped self-service cleaning zone for hound handlers to scrub four-pawed pals without sullying home bathrooms or kitchen sinks. A self-service dog wash provides guests with all materials needed to de-dirt Rover, from shampoo and water to towels and tail-waxing tools. An arsenal of brushes and combs detangle knotted coats, and high-velocity dryers dry fur more efficiently then forcing your pooch to car surf on the way home. Today's Groupon gets owners 45 minutes of washing time, which is available on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday through Saturday after grooming hours are over (usually around 3 p.m.). No appointment is necessary, but Brookline Grooming recommends that pet owners call ahead to check availability.
