Pawcasso’s Academy of Animal Art operates a full-service spa for dogs and cats under the guidance of founder Leslie Rosales, a former vet tech with 22 years of experience working with pets. Donuts and coffee greet pet owners as they enter, and their woofing companions enjoy purified water and homemade treats before their baths. The pet spa’s cleanliness mentors lead canines across an open floor plan that allows pet owners to observe the grooming process and hold up encouraging signs for their furry friends. A bath and brush banishes dirt and tangles from coats, and a nail trim prevents pets from running away from home to pursue tap dancing. Canine pamperers attend to each detail of the pet’s appearance, including maintenance of ears and anal glands. Finally, the groomer cuts, blow-dries, and sculpts the coifs of canines’ dreams, from runway-worthy creations to the shape of a steak.
Dogs may not have gills or flippers, but they sure do love swimming. That simple truth of the animal kingdom inspired the creation of Club K9, Tulsa's only aquatic center devoted solely to canine clientele. Dogs of all kinds within the center's indoor heated pool, but the physical fitness doesn't end at the water's edge. Daycare classes are available for dogs 40lbs and below. In addition to classes, Club K9 is the only full-service cafe serving four-legged friends in Tulsa, and also hosts overnight guests for boarding services, keeping pooches comfortable even when they're far from home.
