When a man gets in trouble, he’s said to be “in the doghouse;" when a dog gets in trouble, he’s said to be “in the doghouse,” since only humans can speak and they naturally define all terms in relation to themselves. Give your canine comrades what they’d ask for if they could with today’s Groupon: for $60, you get five dog-daycare visits and a free bath at Dogstar (a $145 value).
Theresa Shire, Dogstar’s owner and a former supervisor at the Arizona Humane Society’s Campus for Compassion, allows busy customers to cosset their canines with dog-daycare and grooming services. Fluffy four-legged friends visit the canine campus for an initial complimentary meet and greet, where proof of vaccinations is confirmed and a temperament screening ensures a peaceful pack of canine guests. Man’s best friends can run, jump, and play with other merry mutts, passing the day with exercises, social activities, and mental stimulation. For an additional charge, owners can schedule a walk or food delivery or arrange for pickup and drop off or other special accommodations.
Each bowwow babysitting session also offers a free grooming, which includes a bath, brush, blow-dry, ear cleaning, and manicure. Shedding coats are trimmed with the Furminator, which removes excess fur without the help of California governors.
