Dogs reign supreme at Bark Ave, where a team of dog-obsessed caretakers play with them and groom their coats. Doggy daycare affords plenty of romping time followed by overnight boarding. In addition to boarding dogs, staff groom furry guests of all sizes and hair density, showering them with extra pampering by brushing their teeth, painting their nails, and de-shedding their lustrous coats. Hypoallergenic and medicated shampoos are also available for sensitive skin or dogs allergic to themselves.
Since it was founded more than four decades ago, American Window Cleaning has left a trail of sparkling windows and unobstructed gutters across Columbus. Seven days a week, the cleaners scrub windows inside and out, mend damaged screens, and pressure wash home façades. They also scale roofs to clean them of moss and extract any baby shingles that haven't fallen out by themselves.
Big things can grow from small beginnings. Just ask Zoe, the cartoon (and real) canine mascot of The Laptop Guy. The computer-repair shop began with a rented counter in a toy shop, where the company's founder and his dog sold laptops to passersby. His dedication to his customers and Zoe's playful nature brought in more and more customers, until the repair and sales shop could no longer fit next to the action-figure aisle. More than 10 years later, The Laptop Guy has grown into a three-store business that solves customers' smartphone, Apple, Android, and PC issues with online support, in-house repairs, or onsite troubleshooting. Cartoon Zoe and her owner still greet customers on the company's website, and the real-life versions can be found in one of the repair shops on any given day.
