Spot

105 72nd St.
and other locations
New York, NY 10023
212.362.7387

Spot is a cage-free, 24-hour dog center that also offers top of the line grooming and training services. Their specially-trained handlers act as the “alpha” so dogs don’t fight but instead just relax and socialize. They even pick up your dogs and bring them back home when you’re ready.

New York Dog Nanny

Private spaces around the city
New York, NY

Reiki treatments and essential oils are just some of the services offered by New York Dog Nanny. This spa boards dogs in a Murray Hill loft and private apartments in the city where they are allowed to roam free and lie on sofas and beds–just like home.

Beasty Feast

630 Hudson St. or
680 Washington St.
New York, NY 10014
212.620.7099 or 4055

Beasty Feast’s veteran dog groomer, Mel Lucci, has over 40 years of experience. Their deep de-shedding is great for both long and short-haired dogs and has been proven effective for up to two months–creating a “shed free zone.” They have also developed a gentle de-matting process that avoids unnecessarily shaving off the dog’s fur.

The Salty Paw

38 Peck Slip
New York, NY 10038
212.732.BARK

Salty Paw groomers have the power (and hair dye) to transform dogs into other breeds–turning a bichon into a panda bear or a chow into a punk rocker with a Mohawk. These dogs win top prizes at Salty Paw’s Howl-o-ween Bash and their annual Pooch Prom. No, we’re not making that up…

New York, NY 10013
212.219.1632
Canis Minor’s master groomers use specialized Hydrosurge washing systems and low-temperature dryers.

Unleashed Spa

218 Avenue B (between 13th and 14th)
New York, NY 10009
212.533.9300

This East Village dog spa offers full service grooming in addition to a do-it-yourself dog wash. Owners can bathe their pets in a stainless steel tub and dry them in their pet dryers. The service includes shampoo, conditioner, brushes, towels and some professional guidance. But if you want to fully pamper your pet, go for the aromatherapy and blueberry facials. Also check out their natural and organic alternatives for ridding pets of fleas.
