Before the invention of pet grooming parlours, a myriad of Lego blocks, rubber duckies and 1980’s popstar careers were known to be found in domesticated animals’ fur. Give your pet some pampering, and reunite that Lego block with its long-lost family, with today’s Groupon: grooming for dogs, cats or rabbits at The Dog House Grooming Parlour for R50.
Being a pet isn’t easy, particularly when you have no choice but to obey commands like “sit”, “roll over” and “do my math homework”. At The Dog House Grooming Parlour, four-legged friends are invited to enjoy a pamper session that will preen and clean your dog, cat or rabbit’s coat. All breeds of dog, cat and rabbit are welcome and regardless of whether your pet can fit into shoe box or towers over a T-Rex, the professionally trained groomers will have them spic-and-span in no time. Think of the stress your pet must be under having to restrain himself and merely stare blankly at strangers when they pat his head and ask him high-pitched, rhetorical questions – a trip to The Dog House Grooming Parlour will surely make on-lookers aware of who the pretty kitty really is.
Your pet’s luxurious groom will start off with a deep cleansing warm wash with rosemary and peppermint or coconut and lanolin herbal shampoo. Ear plugs will be used to protect their ears and the parlour has a walk-in bath so that your precious petunia does not experience any hip strain. This Groupon also includes a full body check-up for any worrisome lumps and bumps and a warm blow-dry and styling if required. Stylings are breed-specific and can be discussed with the groomers.
Fluffy’s, Scruffy’s or Muffy’s gnashers will also be buffed with a teeth cleaning and his nails and hair will be trimmed between the paw pads, as well as an ear cleaning and the application of a tick and flea treatment. Your pet might desire some pizazz in its life which is why the experts at The Dog House Grooming Parlour offer a colourful vibrant slick of nail polish, bows or hairclips and your choice of blue, pink, purple or green fringe or tail streaks to make your pet truly standout from the rest.
Pet fact: Along a narrow road in Alabama there is a wax pet museum with replicas of famous animals including Daffy Duck and Mutley. The Mutley exhibit is one of the more popular ones as it gives off his trademark wheezy snicker when a button is pushed.
