Pamper Your Pets
Do you like getting your nails done? How about a massage? Maybe you’d like a day at the hair salon? Well your dog might enjoy a pampering party too. And that’s why there are pet spas around Cincinnati.
These spas go above and beyond your ordinary groomer. They have taken note that your pet is part of your family and have adjusted accordingly. From at-home services to deep tissue massages, Cincinnati pet spas offer only the best for your furry friends.
Mobility: Pampered Pooch Spa
(859) 261 2430
The Pampered Pooch Spa brings the spa experience to your dog with the “Groom Mobile.” For carsick prone dogs or dogs that just feel more comfortable closer to their own home, this is the place to call. The mobility doesn’t stop this spa from offering more than just a cut and blow dry. From an oral care package to a manicure with “nail ‚Äòpaw’lish,” this spa takes care of your pup from head to toe. The Pampered Pooch Mobile Pet Spa van offers a climate-controlled environment without the distracting barks of other dogs, so your pooch can relax and enjoy the pampering.
Versatility: A Doggie’s Day Spa
5090 Crookshank Rd.
Cincinnati, Ohio 45238
A Doggie’s Day Spa is just what its name implies — and more. This pet fantasy doesn’t restrict its spa facilities to just the canine crowd. A Doggie’s Day Spa can be a kitty’s day spa too with their cat-grooming capabilities. Pet groomer Angela Davenport makes use of her certification in “Advanced Pet Styling Techniques” from the Ohio Academy of Pet Styling. Besides its grooming facilities, A Doggie’s Day Spa also offers doggie day care, overnight boarding and training classes so that your pup can learn the etiquette of the princess she will look like.
Luxury: The Pet Spot
2503 Norwood Avenue
Norwood, Ohio 45212
The Pet Spot takes pet spas to a whole new level with its certified canine massage practitioner. Forget the locks and think of the knots — and how you can help relieve them. All dogs go to heaven, and from a “Gentle Joint Rub” to a one hour full body massage, your dog can experience a little of that heaven on earth. And with your vet’s permission, your arthritic dog or surgery-patient pooch can feel some pain relief through the hands of a masseuse.
The Ultimate: Red Dog Pet Resort and Spa
5081 Madison Road
Cincinnati, Ohio 45227
If you think your dog deserves the best, Red Dog Pet Resort and Spa should be on speed dial. This spa is truly the ultimate for (wo)man’s best friend. Red Dog offers grooming services, training classes and overnight boarding, but none of those services are out of the ordinary. Fitness classes, indoor pool swim time, “Healing Touch for Animals” and massages, however, all make Red Dog jump over the line into the extraordinary. “Healing Touch is a bio-field energy relaxation modality, blending holistic concepts, techniques, and applications to bring energetic balance to the body,” according to the Red Dog Web site. So from the splash of the pool to the relaxation of a massage, Red Dog can offer your pet a vacation from the everyday at Cincinnati’s prime pet resort.
