At Park Avenue Pups, we offer, sedation-free full service grooming, with consideration paid to each dog?s level of tolerance and the owner?s desire for their dog?s appearance. For owners that work all day, we offer a Day Care/Grooming visit. Owners can drop their pups off in the morning, and their pet will play in day care until afternoon. This seems to help some cope with grooming anxiety issues.
