Leave it to nature to open up the skies and pour rain down on the day Heather and Mr. K were set to go explore! This week, the Buckhead Scotties traveled just outside their territory to visit the wonderful people at Glamour Paws in Virginia Highlands.
When you walk in, you're greeted by a clean and well-designed retail space on your left and windows showcasing the large, indoor park with synthetic grass on your right. As traditional gender roles might predict, Miss Heather casually strolled toward the retail side to check out the bargains while Mr. K, on the other hand, wanted to be in on the play action on the other side of the window!
The three of us took a tour of the facility and the pups were given a treat to munch on while mom looked around. I must say, my second favorite thing at Glamour Paws is the selection of clothing. Mr. K and Heather scored two adorable rain coats to protect them from the dismal weather outside. For the most part, the clothes available are for smaller pets but I was told more was on the way for larger dogs because, as we all know, they deserve to get all dolled up every once in a while, too...
The thing I liked most? The giant, indoor park and cage-free boarding option for small dogs. As a Scottie Mom, I'm not big on boarding pets but Glamour Paws might just change my mind one day. Occasional daycare for socialization purposes I can handle, but overnight stays? Not so much. When I learned about the indoor park, it was the first time I have ever felt I might be okay leaving my precious pups somewhere while I'm away (assuming Mr. K can pass the temperament test!).
I could go on forever about the indoor park but, for brevity's sake, I'll leave it at this: it's green (literally, and in terms of how it is made); there's a drainage system underneath that cleans itself every few hours, so when your pets come home, they won't be so dirty; and, it is reasonably priced at $25 a day for daycare or $35 a night for boarding. What's more, if you do board, your pups will have plenty of mini-bar options to enjoy (with mom's permission and selection, of course) just as you might wherever you are vacationing!
Until next time, be sure to check in on Heather and Mr. K at www.scottiemom.com. Much love and two tails-a-wagging!
