Though dogs are man's best friend, they are unable to be a groom's best man due to their inability to resist gnawing on mouthwatering cake toppers. Keep man's chompiest friend looking sharp with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a bath, ear cleaning, and paw-dicure nail trim for a dog 40 pounds or under at Pets in the City (a $45 value).
Pets in the City spruces up canines in a full-service grooming salon populated by the friendly sniffs and tail wags of other four-legged clients. Once owners drop off their wet-nosed mates at the spacious, rubber-floored facility, certified groomers thoroughly clean ears and service dog-whistle hearing aids before a paw-dicure clips nails to a more furniture-friendly shape. Then, they’ll scrub down pooches 40 pounds and under with locally produced Pacifica dog shampoo, a tearless formulation that conditions and brightens coats while controlling odor. Pets in the City staff specialize in calming anxious dogs with an amiable manner and expert rawhide hypnosis, so owners can rest secure as their canine companions get clean.
Although not included in today’s Groupon, customers can reward best friends with seven spa add-on services for an additional fee. Paw-conditioning treatments can soothe padded tootsies, and tooth brushings ($5 each) keep pearly whites gleaming despite a habit of chewing coffee-flavored frisbees.
Pets in the City
Because dogs often think they're people, Pets in the City treats them as such with doggie daycare that resembles a boarding school, complete with lessons. Pet parents drop off their charges for a day of fun and learning that starts with homeroom. After homeroom, dogs typically break off for breakfast, either eating what their owners sent from home or the cafeteria's tasty organic kibble. Throughout the day, they bound through a schedule that interweaves two to four walks and socializing with class sessions in agility, basic training, and advanced calculus. At nap and nighttime, they bunk in private spaces.
Puppy parents can also schedule spa treatments, all performed with gentle Pacifica products. The experienced groomers on staff safely trim nails and dislodge dirt from fur with soothing baths. Add-ons such as conditioning treatments, blueberry facials, and flea dips ready pooches for a showdown with the dog that lives in the mirror.
