With dog-loving owner Erica Iglesias at the helm, K9 Playland’s ensemble of expertly trained staff proves its dedication to friendly canine care with gentle, meticulous grooming services. Upon bidding woofed adieus to their human companions, pooches lounge in a balmy oatmeal bath whose cleansing waters offer an alternative to sticky maple-syrup showers.
Hound coiffeurs then run brushes through shaggy coats to render fur soft and sleek, followed by the thorough trimming and filing of unkempt nails and an anal-gland expression. Ears filled with grime undergo a complete cleaning, after which a tooth brushing restores chompers to a sparkling state. Grooming services can take two to five hours depending on the pup’s size and number of poker breaks requested.
Three out of four of K9 Playland’s co-owners can’t answer the phone without barking. That’s because Alvin, Zoe, and Allie-Gator are a pug, dachshund, and german shepherd who belong to co-owner Erica Iglesias. Erica and her staff view their canine clientele as being every bit as important as these three pups.
When owners leave for top-secret CIA missions, dogs can take vacations inside 4’x8’ kennel spaces equipped with miniature cots and blankets. Doggy daycare takes place in a 4,000-square-foot indoor space where pups play in groups divided by age, size, and temperament, and an outdoor play area entertains with playground equipment, toys, and pools. The facility also offers gentle, meticulous grooming treatments, such as balmy oatmeal baths, in addition to training programs, which aim to instill perfect table manners and obedience deep in pets' psyches.
