We all want to give our dogs the best lives possible, from the best food to the most comfortable beds. Our dogs deserve the best, and part of the joys of being a dog owner is being able to spoil them. If you’re looking for creative ways to spoil your dog, you may be considering alternatives or additions to things like their favorite treats or an extra-long walk.

You already know that PetSmart is a place you can go to cover all of your dog’s everyday needs, but PetSmart offers lots of ways to enrich your dog’s life beyond the basics, and—dare we say it—downright spoil your dog. Whether you’re looking to spend more time with your dog through training and activities, give your dog play time with other dogs, or even find your dog a trusted home-away-from-home while you’re away, PetSmart offers services to make your dog’s life feel even more luxurious.

Special Grooming or Spa Days for Your Dog

If you’re used to giving your dog a bath or brushing out their coat at home, kicking up your dog’s lifestyle with professional grooming is a great place to start. Having your dog professionally groomed can be a relaxing experience for them and leave your dog feeling refreshed and pampered. A professional grooming will make sure your dog’s nails are trimmed to a comfortable length, ears are clean and fresh, fur around their eyes is safely trimmed if needed, their coat is shampooed and conditioned according to type, plus other essential professional grooming services. Their professional groomers have experience and training with all of the right tools to get the job done right for your dog, and knows how to take care of your dog during their groom to make them more comfortable. Even if your dog doesn’t love being groomed, a professional groomer will know ways to help them feel more comfortable.

Not all dogs enjoy being groomed at first if they aren’t familiar with it, but building up to more regular grooming sessions and treating the experience like a special spa day treat for your dog can help your dog feel more comfortable and familiar with the process. Regular grooming, even just brushing your dog at home, helps reduce shedding and will help keep your dog’s skin and coat in good condition. PetSmart offers grooming packages for dogs and puppies at the Grooming Salon that will have your dog feeling like royalty. PetSmart Grooming Salons offer a range of professional grooming packages for your dog’s special day of pampering.

For your dog’s special spa day at PetSmart, you can choose what best suits your dog’s needs.

If you’re looking to spend more time with your dog to elevate your everyday playtime or walks, taking training classes together is a great way to do just that. Whether it’s jumping into basic obedience classes or training your dog to do fun tricks, learning something new together is a great way to bond with your dog.
