They say, every dog has its day but you need not really wait for that! Your pooches can have the time of their lives at the salons and grooming centres in the city. Pet grooming is no longer restricted to nail clipping, ear-cleaning and a basic wash. With hair-styling, a complete spa-treatment, deep conditioning, oil massages and even a paw-dicure, pets can be pampered to the hilt. If you want them to go on a fun date, you can let them spend a day at a special hotel for pets. Take them along to pet cafes in the city that serve delicious food to pets as well as owners and help them bond. The city is getting increasingly pet-friendly. If you have been planning to adopt a pet, now is the time.
