Marcia and Jim Wentzell have been serving the Cobb County animal community for more than 15 years, working with rescue groups, homeless dogs, and family pets. Jim graduated as a certified obedience trainer in 1998, and then went on to serve as the president of the Georgia Network of Professional Petsitters until 2002. In 2005, he and Marcia opened A Passion For Pets Daycare and Grooming, where they offer grooming, training, daycare, and cage-free sleepovers for dogs.
During daycare, dogs romp, run, and work out four-part howling harmonies on a full acre of open-play space. Four-legged guests that are spending the night also roam freely thanks to cage-free sleepovers with overnight human companionship. At the full-service salon, staffers primp dogs with full bath and spa treatments that include services such as gum massages and even blueberry facials. The onsite Doggy-Liscious Bake Shop provides yummy pet treats, and the store also sells natural and holistic pet foods. A Passion For Pets opened a new boutique offering rhinestone collars, jewelry for dogs, and leashes.
A Passion for Pets also specializes in agility training and in-home petsitting.
Town and Country Veterinary Clinic understands that pet owners are passionate about the health and wellbeing of their furry, feathery, or scaly family members, so they provide compassionate care and employ the latest technologies. Originally founded by Dr. Michael Good—who was eventually joined by his son, Dr. Phil Good, as well as a roster of fellow veterinarians—the practice has grown over the last several decades, and it now boasts locations throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. The team members help preserve animals' health by performing everything from routine checkups to necessary surgeries, such as applying a leg cast to a Labrador or offering wrinkle cream to a Shar-Pei. They utilize x-rays, ultrasounds, and other cutting edge diagnostic technologies as they attentively treat each pet as if it were one of their own. Beyond clinical appointments, the practice offers grooming and boarding services, placing animals under the watchful supervision of passionate caregivers while owners are away.
For more than two decades , the dedicated staff at Pet Med Plus have combined advanced technology and old-fashioned warm-heartedness to care for dogs and cats. The clinic’s on-site lab allows for faster blood test results, and digital radiography helps locate areas of concern or stores of hidden biscuits. Pet Med Plus also provides alternative therapies specially designed for furry companions, including laser therapy intended to reduce pain and inflammation and stress-relieving Reiki. Boarding services grant pets a comfortable home away from home, complete with a large yard, and
a retail area stocks treats and toys.
You love your dog, but since you can’t always take them with you, it’s important to have a place you can trust to care for them just as you would. Wagging Tails Doggie Daycare is such a place; the facility gets consistently good consumer reviews, and is a cage-free environment where canine companions won’t feel cooped up and unhappy. Best of all, there are web cams for checking in with your pooch, so you can make sure they’re happy while you’re away. Your dog will enjoy the big open space and cheery blue walls, and you’ll be impressed as the staff learns your dog’s name immediately. The dedicated team is also responsive to any individual pet needs, and each pet receives personal attention during his stay.
"Feed, wash, and treat your pet the natural way." This is the tagline of Intown Healthy Hound & City-Kitty, a new full-service pet supply store and grooming parlor with an eco-friendly bent. Pets can soak in hypo-allergenic baths and feast on organic biscuits at a shop where all-natural shampoos and treats are the norm rather than the exception. Pets and their parents can also take advantage of local resources supported by Intown Healthy Hound and City-Kitty such as doggie day cares, mobile vets, and fire hydrant sensitivity trainings.
After working as a veterinary technician, Strutt Your Mutt's owner decided to put her passion for animals toward starting her own dog-grooming business. She lathers up pooches' coats and trims nails and fur during bath and grooming services. Her additional treatments include cleaning canines’ ears, brushing teeth free of cat hair, and maintaining nails with the Dremel, a tool that comfortably clips pets’ claws into shorter, smoother nails.
