After always sticking their heads out of moving car windows, dogs collect dust, debris, and dirty looks from trailing drivers who suddenly have drool-covered windshields. Give beloved bow-wows a bath with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of boarding, daycare, and dog-grooming services at Dogtopia of Omaha in La Vista. Today’s Groupon is not valid for new client evaluations, retail products, or self-grooming.
Dogtopia’s responsible staff members scrub, clip, and comb matted Fidos into soft, pleasantly pettable pets. Clients can place pampered four-pawed friends in the able hands of a trained tech for a full grooming with a suds-soaked buff-and-fluff dry, breed-specific trim, nail clip and file, and ear cleansing ($40–$100). A day-spa package lets owners drop off extroverted pooches to play nice, pal around, or wage billiards battles in supervised daycare before a relaxing brushing and bath treatment toward the end of the afternoon ($15 plus the cost of grooming). A puppy groom ($45–$90) before 4 months of age habituates developing doggies to the pleasures of good hygiene. Additional à la carte add-ons range from a blueberry facial scrub ($5) to de-shedding treatment ($5–$15) to teeth brushing ($3), which helps clear bits of kibble and kitchen table legs from canine canines. Prices for all grooming services depend on the size and breed of the dog.
