Stephanie Gau has loved dogs all her life but it wasn't until she discovered Meatlovers, the nutrient-rich organic dog food used by police departments, that that the idea to open her own business took shape. Meatlovers wasn't a new concept, as the company had been around since the invention of dogs in 1949, but Stephanie, who had worked in law enforcement, felt she could combine the time-tested food with other products and services and her passion for canine care.
Today, the dog lover packs her shop with locally made goodies waiting to fill the stomachs of man's best friends. She works with the local Yellow Dog Bakery to outfit canine chompers with treats such as birthday cakes, pupcakes, and decorated cookies. Stephanie also educates customers on proper dog nutrition, while Waggles—the store's dalmatian mascot—attends local events at dog parks and garden shows.
In addition to the retail shop, Stephanie and her team groom pups and run a boarding center. Unlike most kennels, Tail Waggers' crew doesn't keep their furry friends inside crates or cages. Instead, canines spend nights in doggy hotel rooms and days in a play area, where they can bounce and play cribbage with other dogs between regular trips outside.
During her many years as a pet groomer, Tina Bebee witnessed grooming methods that filled her with dismay. In 1991, she decided to open her own grooming shop, naming it in a way that made its specialty clear. From a basic nail trim to a full bath with shedding treatment, each session is performed by caring mane tamers, and Gentle Pet Grooming's managers oversee and check the work of all groomers-in-training. When possible, dogs are paired with the same groomer at each visit to establish a loving bond and make the experience more pleasant for tender-headed mutts.
With a veterinarian, groomer, and even an animal-portrait artist on staff—and an onsite boarding facility—The Posh Pup serves as a one-stop shop for canine needs. Groomers use natural shampoos and Furminator brushes to clean and de-shed pups. Dr. Andrea Harl handles vaccinations, blood work, and prescriptions to keep pets healthy.
Midtown Tails keeps precious pooches well-cared for with its expert dog-walking and visiting services. Canine corraler Rachael Baldwin puts pet health and comfort first, with her pet first-aid certification from the American Red Cross and her membership with Pet Sitters International. During the 30-minute walk, dogs can scamper about under the watchful leash of Rachael, taking in plenty of exercise and attention throughout the scenic trek around their own, familiar neighborhood, keeping pets comfortable and reducing separation anxiety. The walkathon commences with a refueling of fresh food and water, and up to three hounds can get in on the strolling session.
