Man’s best friend may be his dog, but a girl’s best fashion accessory is HER dog. As a new, first-time dog owner, I try to make sure that I take every precaution to make sure my little Georgie is not just healthy, but also that he looks gooooood as we strut our stuff down the streets of South Florida. I spend hours a day grooming myself, so my furry friend needs to look on point too.
If you’re like me, then your dog isn’t JUST your dog, it’s your FAMILY. So you want the people who are taking care of your dog to treat them like family too. That is why I am SO glad I discovered RaboCao Pet Pawlor & Daycare. Located near Miami’s Design District, RaboCao is a professional pet styling salon offering wide range of grooming services for both cats and dogs, as well as daycare and extended stay cage-less pet boarding. RaboCao boasts over 15 years of experience in the pet service industry. And unlike the big corporations where your animal is just a number, at Rabocao, they offer a custom, unique, and stress-free grooming experience where your pet is pampered and shown lots of love.
This is Aeden, one of RaboCao’s happy customers.
The space where RaboCao is located actually used to be a home, so walking in, you immediately are struck with a sense of comfort. I can’t tell you how many times I have walked in to my appointment at Petsmart where the same people never seem to remember my name or my dog or cat’s name. It truly makes me feel like they are not giving the proper care that my animals deserve! But when I first toured RaboCao, I noticed that the groomers knew each and every dog’s name without hesitation, as well as which dogs needed extra care because they get fussy when being groomed. There is an enormous sense of TRUST that you just don’t get everywhere.
So yes, of course I want my little man to be fashionable like his mama, but pet owners also NEED to know the importance of grooming to your pet’s health. From PetMD:
- Brushing is beneficial for all kinds of dogs no matter what breed they are, helping to remove dead hair, dirt, and dandruff. Regular brushing also helps to bring out the natural oils in the dog’s fur. As you brush, the natural oils are spread all over your puppy’s fur giving the coat a healthy sheen.
- Another benefit of grooming is that it allows you to check your dog for any abnormalities. This includes skin problems such as ticks, fleas and dry patches, or issues with their nails, teeth, ears, and eyes such as infection or inflammation. When found at an early stage, these problems can be treated right away, before they have a chance to become more serious.
- Grooming helps keep your dog happy and healthy, gives you and your dog a time that is set aside just for the two of you, and helps you to save on veterinary bills.
And that’s just the beginning of the grooming that your dog may need – RaboCao also offers nail trimming or grinding, ear cleaning, teeth brushing, anal gland cleaning (thank goodness this isn’t something they offer at MY hair salon), and medicated flea and tick baths. So take care of your precious pets – they are your best accessory, and unlike a handbag or piece of jewelry – they are PRICELESS!
