The more unkempt a dog’s fur becomes, the more likely he is to run away from home and join a pack of strays or a hair metal band. Keep your dog safe from synthesizers with today’s Groupon to Pawcasso’s Academy of Animal Arts. Choose from the following options:
- For $20, you get basic grooming for a small dog up to 20 pounds (up to a $40 value).
- For $30, you get basic grooming for a medium-sized dog, 20–40 pounds (up to a $60 value).
Pawcasso’s Academy of Animal Arts pampers pooches with an array of grooming services in a professional and nurturing environment. Grooming gurus welcome human guests with complimentary coffee and donuts, and offer dogs purified water and a homemade treat before leading them across the studio’s open floor plan to their pup-scrubbing station. A skin consultation helps canine custodians select the best shampoo for each dog’s complexion and political leaning, and a review of dogs’ grooming histories help determine their ideal ‘do. Warm sudsy bath water evicts each strand’s hidden stockpile of dirt and half-chewed house slippers, and technicians pay particular attention to mud-hoarding nails, delicate ears, and rear ends. A bout of robust brushing and blow-drying imbues locks with bounce and shine, before stylists administer a fur trim and tease manes into pompadours and beehives.
As of October 25, the Mingo Road location has closed; Groupon holders may visit the new 71st Street location for redemption.
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.
