Pets, like children, require proper care and attention to ensure they don't get bored and bite the mailman. Pamper furry ankle biters with today's Groupon: for $35, you get $80 worth of general pet-grooming services at HarlemDoggieDaySpa.
Helmed by experienced pooch professor Dr. Larry Sterne, HarlemDoggieDaySpa primps pups with a hirsute host of grooming services. Groomers can sculpt a well-coifed haircut ($25) or treat hounds to a bubble-soaked bath ($15) and blow-dry ($5). Harlem's stylists also offer general grooming packages, including hair cutting, bathing, and ear cleaning ($30–$80 based on the breed), nail trimming ($7), or wax-banishing ear cleanings ($5) that will ensure your pup won't miss out on the atonal vocal stylings of the tabby next door. Canine grooming services may include additional costs for dematting and shaving depending on the condition of each dog's coat. For cats, nail cutting starts at $20, grooming packages start at $25, and prices are based on each feline’s temperament.
With nearly 20 years of experience as the founder of Dr. Larry's Pet Sitting, Dr. Larry Sterne is also certified in pet CPR and first aid. These credentials may come in handy in the event that your pup's primpified appearance causes him to be knocked over by a stampede of autograph-seeking squirrels.
Harlem Doggie Day Spa
Dog owners let out a sigh of relief when they leave their pups in the capable hands of licensed staffers at Harlem Doggie Day Spa. They can rest assured knowing the staff never puts boarding charges in a crate overnight, unless it's by request. Instead, dogs enjoy perks such as multiple trips out in the fresh air and some cuddling while watching TV. Daycare charges spend their time scampering in the indoor or outdoor yards, playing with other dogs and staff members.
And when owners pick up pups and kitties after their grooming sessions, they find pets looking as fresh as they did when they first came of the assembly line—complete with bows, painted nails, and mohawks.
