Owner and experienced groomer Betty Betanio and her friendly team pamper pooches with attentive dog grooming on-site with their mobile grooming van, or at two convenient locations at BB's Grooming & Boutique. During the indulgent makeover, an experienced groomer bathes your canine and then snips fur into a stylish coiffure that flatters Fido's individual breed. Pups can strut with confidence and comfort after the technician expresses their glands, and sneak up to fire hydrants undetected with neatly clipped nails. After ears are freshly purged of wax and excess fur, meticulously detailed dogs can focus on more important things, such as rereading Lassie's tell-all memoir.
Nestled into 116 wooded acres, A Cowboy Town preserves a slice of the Wild West east of the Mississippi. The owner conceived of his idea when he had a sudden memory from childhood of watching a Wild West gunfight in a similar show in Florida; thus, A Cowboy Town was born. It turned out he wasn't alone in his interests, and A Cowboy Town began to draw crowds of children both young and old with its comedy gunfight show, trail rides through the valley, and activities, including canoeing and fishing for cowboy boots on Kickapoo Lake. The town takes visitors back in time as they interact with townspeople who rove the grounds in period dress, alongside live musical performers, who strum guitars and pluck banjos in cowboy fashion for the crowds every Saturday. Guests can saunter into the Rattlesnake Saloon—which can be fully stocked with adult beverages for private parties–for a cold sarsaparilla or to try their hand at poker, or head to the stables to bestride a horse with a gentle demeanor.
A Cowboy Town is dedicated completely to hosting all-ages, family-friendly activities, and the owner considers a repeat visit the highest compliment. The office manager Kitti recalls her favorite customer reaction: "They [said they] were going to bring their whole family out the next weekend, all 25 people. And they did! People always leave our place with smiles on their faces and they tell their friends and come back over and over."
Inside The Groomery, Christy Lynn lavishes her clients with manicures, blueberry facials, and the occasional belly rub. Fueled by extensive training and a passion for all things canine, she transforms dog grooming into an art composed of hairstyling, massage therapy, and a hint of fashion design. During basic baths, she ushers pups to a Bath Master system that lathers fur with a choice of shampoo and melts away tension with pulses of water. To make tails wag with glee, she selects a tearless shampoo that complements each skin type and coat texture. After the sudsing has concluded, Christy Lynn accents the dog's natural beauty with a jaunty bandana, bow, or powdered wig. For pooches seeking a full makeover, she can brush teeth, brush and trim fur, scrub paw pads, or file nails into a manageable shape.
Helmed by a trio of dog- and cat-grooming specialists, Groomer Has It is a one-stop shop for dirty and disheveled pets. The team employs a skin-oxygenating HydroSurge bath to gently cleanse pets before sprucing them up with a haircut, teeth brushing, a de-shedding treatment, and a nail trim. The facility also boasts DIY bathing tubs, giving pet owners access to bathing equipment and offering autonomous dogs the dignity that comes with washing one’s own hair.
The professionals at Invisible Fence of Middle Tennessee bring pet owners peace of mind with their Invisible Fence technology. They begin by surrounding properties with a discreet wire that acts as an invisible boundary. They then outfit dogs with a custom computer collar, which emits a warning tone followed by a nonharming static correction whenever pets reach the yard’s parameters. Invisible Fence of Middle Tennessee also offers training services, in which pet trainers work with dogs to teach them the new boundaries.
