The Paw Pad Grooming showers pets with both warm water and affection during its myriad fur-styling services. The staff creates a serene environment for its four-legged guests by treating one dog at a time, scrubbing down pelts and snipping new 'dos while they put pooches at ease. They use eco-friendly products to gussy up coats, and offer complimentary nail trims or mani-pedis in the colors of the client's favorite Iditarod team. For pups in need of special sessions, medicated shampoo, de-skunking baths, and aloe treatments can alleviate skin stressors. The staff emphasizes that their job is just as much about health as it is about looking chic on walks—grooming can result in sleeker pelts and a reduced likelihood of ailments such as fleas or dandruff.
The grooming salon is also a playpen for well-socialized dogs, who can cavort in the daycare area while they wait for their owners to pick them up. Appointments range between one hour and four hours, and employees can both retrieve and drop-off their canine patrons for additional fees.:m]]
The dry-cleaning specialists at Max Precision Cleaning Enterprise maintain a kindly rapport with articles of clothing and the customers who bring them in. Rather than subject fragile garments to the rough-and-tumble of thrashing washers, delicates are carefully analyzed to determine the proper course of action, with meticulous by-hand cleaning administered when necessary. The experts who staff each location are similarly conscientious about the earth and the humans who inhabit it, introducing environmentally helpful measures, including reusing plastic garment bags as waste-can liners, into their cleaning protocols whenever possible and allowing each location to double as a Salvation Army drop-off site for clothing donations.
