Powered by Mom talks about Pet Pampering at Bow Wow Haus
After all don't your pets deserve to be treated to some pampering too?
We were lucky enough to have the opportunity to treat our Blue Heeler Luna to a pet pampering session at Bow Wow Haus at 532 E. Broadway in Vancouver. Our pets are a part of our family and I think they deserve some pet pampering now and then too just like we should treat ourselves once in a while.
Bow Wow Haus has three locations in the Vancouver lower mainland:
- 1701 W. 4th Ave.
- 2821 W. Broadway
- 532 E. Broadway
We selected the E. Broadway location only because it was our old stomping grounds as teenager. I remember taking a bus as a teenager and in my early 20s to the Marks Work Warehouse at Kingsgate Mall and grabbing an Orange Julius (which is no longer) there while did some quick shopping. Hubby used to be a regular at that Marks to get his jeans etc.. so it was a bit of a walk down memory lane. After visiting this Bow Wow Haus I'm confident we would have had a great experience at any location!
We took Luna about a week before we were going away on vacation so that she could get a nice washing of her fur, trimming of her nails and a general overall pampering. I think it's a great idea and healthy for your pet to have them groomed at least a few times of the year and not just in the summer. We like to have a grooming done for at least each season. There's a few reasons for that, it helps keep their nails trimmed so they're not bothered by long nails, they get some extra special care of their fur coats and so much more!
Luna has the type of coat that you do not trim but a good brushing and washing of her fur is always great and she needs it brushed a lot.
The team members at Bow Wow Haus were simply fabulous with Luna. Our girl is losing her eyesight so they were very conscientious of that, speaking to he her constantly, give her a good scratch behind the ears and more. We felt comfortable leaving Luna in their capable hands while she got her pampering and we went to explore our old stomping grounds.
Here's Luna getting set up for her grooming session
As you can see they do have to secure your dogs so they don't fall off of course. It keeps them up high and close to the groomer and they can check her for any sore spots, look at her ears and trim her nails.
Bow Wow Haus also sells a variety of pet accessories, food and pretty much anything you can think of for your furry family member. They even have a photo studio so you can include your beloved pets in your holiday photos or any special occasion!
Luna seemed very happy when we picked her up and her fur was clean, shiny and soft when we came back to pick her up!
I was impressed by the amount of detail that the team members went into when talking to us about Luna after her pampering sessions. They noticed that her ear was bother her along with her bottom, noticing that she might be a bit swollen. Yes they get that close when grooming your pets which most of us might not do on a daily grooming basis at home. This was very helpful for us indeed as we went to have her checked by the vet to make sure all was okay with our girl.
Here's Luna with the wonderful team at Bow Wow Haus on East Broadway!
As you can see Luna looked quite happy after her session and she was dolled up with a new bandana too! It seems she liked hanging out with the gals at Bow Wow Haus. Don't forget you can treat your pet to some pampering any time of the year, it's not just for summer!
Also remember to protect them from ticks and fleas, we use Advantix! A few days after Luna's pampering experience we protected her with Advantix. You can read more about ticks and Lyme Disease on our post HERE.
