Animal Care Unlimited's grooming guru, Lynda, scrubs, snips, and styles canine hides with diligence and delicacy. Four-legged patrons are greeted with a gentle shampoo bath to neutralize the unsavory smells of late-night poker games, followed by a blow-dry and tress trim—including sanitary clip and paw-pad snip. The beast beautician then disinfects dog derrieres, purges and plucks cruddy ear canals, prunes pointy paws, and highlights cheekbones with an understated rouge. Fees vary depending on size and breed, but scrub downs start at $40 for wallet-sized woofers, with the average grooming around $48. Any remaining Groupon dollars can go toward a future pooch pamper. Pups must be prepped with rabies, distemper, and Bordetella vaccinations before their primp.
While pooches are part of the family, unfortunately they can't always go along on the family vacation. My Dog's Spot makes up for what they may miss out on by giving them comfortable quarters to sleep, play, and eat in.

For pups that require only a short stay, half- and full-day doggie daycare are available as well.
