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, we visited 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 wanted to be in on the action on the other side of the window.
The three of us took a tour of the facility and the pups were given treats. I must say: my second favorite thing at Glamour Paws is the selection of clothing. Heather and Mr. K scored two adorable rain coats to protect them from the dismal weather. 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 should be afforded the same opportunity 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 Glamout 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 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; and, it is reasonably priced at $25 per day for daycare or $35 per night for boarding. What's more, dog who board with Glamour Paws 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!
