Dirty Dogs Spa and Boutique is uniquely designed to pamper your canine companions with only the best in grooming, spa treatments, pet accessories, and pet related gift items. “We are dedicated to providing you and your pet with the highest quality unique and hard to find pet products in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere,” said Vanessa Davis, Dirty Dogs Spa and Boutique CEO.
The origin of the business came about when Davis — an interior designer by trade — was conducting her own research to provide her dog Taylor, now chief canine officer, with all-natural and organic skin care products to alleviate his allergies and skin issues. She and Brent Robbins, formerly in logistics and now vice president of operations, combined this research with their love for dogs and opened Dirty Dogs Spa and Boutique in early 2012.
At the spa, customers can pamper their pooch with an assortment of services including the self-service doggie spa, full service grooming, de-shedding and flea treatments, massage lotions, paw rubs, tooth brushing, and fur conditioning. The boutique offers a variety of leashes and collars, pet accessories, and unique pet related gift items. “We are proud to offer products of the highest quality and variety including unusual treats like Bowser Beer and Barkandy Wine by Bark Vineyards,” said Davis.
First-time self-service spa customers are guided step by step and provided everything from the all-natural shampoos and conditioners, pet safe dryers and grooming tools, to a finish of a spritz of doggie cologne like Timmy Holedigger or CK-9. For discriminating customers who desire a bit more pampering, the spa offers pampering treatments such as blueberry facials and pawdicures.
“We consider every pet that enters our doors and their owners to be part of our family,” said Robbins. “We want their experience to be fun and relaxed for everyone.”
