Where to Pamper Your Pet in the Sacramento Area
Whether a dog, cat, hamster or horse, pets truly are man’s best friend, and like any BFF, they deserve the royal treatment from time to time. Sure, you can pamper your pet with treats or toys (or maybe extra playtime or a bonus snuggle), but why not kick it up a notch? From frou-frou salons to gourmet bakeries just for pets, there are many places in the greater Sacramento area where you can pamper your pet. Following are some of the top spots.
Posh Paws Grooming Salon | Granite Bay & Rocklin
With locations in both Rocklin and Granite Bay, Posh Paws can give your doggo the works — a relaxing spa bath with massage, facial scrub, even a mani/pedi. Their online store, the Posh Puppy Boutique, offers an extensive collection of designer collars, clothing, carriers and toys — even specialty items to keep your pup cool on hot days, like freezable teething toys and cooling pads. They also offer free in-store pickup for local residents!
Paws and the Palette | Midtown
This specialty boutique in Midtown has everything your cool canine could ask for, from clothing to beds and unique toys like reusable fetching sticks. They also have a vegan bakery, The Vegan Pup, where you can buy cookies and cakes for your four-legged friend. Best of all, a portion of their proceeds go to provide food and veterinary care to the nonprofit Pets of the Homeless.
Animal Wellness Center | Davis
Sure, this spot in Davis provides traditional veterinary care, but they specialize in integrative care so your pet benefits from the best of both worlds. They offer acupuncture treatments to help relieve pain and calm frazzled pets, orthopedic manipulation (chiropractic care) to help realign the body, laser therapy to reduce inflammation and improve circulation, and herbal remedies to heal the body without side effects.
The Doggie Bag | Roseville
This spot in Roseville has everything you need to spoil your dog (or cat!). They have clothing and eyewear, hairbows and bowties, and every toy imaginable. If you’re celebrating a milestone, you can pick up a bone-shaped birthday cake or a bag of doggie cookies just because.
Groomingdales Pet Salon | Placerville
No matter the breed of dog (or cat!), they’ll be looking top-notch after an afternoon at this spot in Placerville. Ever tried giving your cat a bath? They can do it while keeping your feline calm and relaxed! Does your bird need a feather-cut? They do that too! You can also splurge on a full body massage with calming essential oils for the ultimate treat!
Pampered Pet Salon and Boutique | Folsom
At this pet salon in Folsom, your dog (or cat) can be king or queen for a day with specialty shampoos, deep conditioners, nail polish and a spritz of cologne to top it off. If they’ve been an especially good boy, you can send them home with a special reward, such as dog treats flavored like blueberry cobbler or peanut butter. Or, pick up a unique handbag or animal-themed accessory for yourself. They also sell dog-friendly cake and cookie mixes!
Dixie’s Paws and Claws | Woodland
Located in Woodland, this dog groomer also has a large shop on site where you can pick up goodies for your pet. They carry a large line of keto, raw, all-natural food to keep your dog in optimal health, as well as organic dog treats and ice cream. You can also get a fancy collar, bow tie or bandana. They even have Halloween costumes for pets!
Animal Den Pet Resort & Spa | Sacramento
This Sacramento pet resort offers boarding for dogs and cats, as well and doggy daycare and grooming. But if you really want to show your dog that he’s special, you should take him to the Local Bark Park, a membership-based playground for dogs that includes a huge inground pool, climbing structure, and a sand digging pit! Best of all, they serve craft beer and tasty snacks for humans while they wait.
Animal Psychic Ursele Rabe | Grass Valley/Nevada City
Has your pet been feeling a little off? Has their behavior or demeanor changed and you don’t know why? If so, turn to animal communicator/healer Ursela Rabe. Whether dog, cat, pig, horse, fish, bird or reptile, she is naturally intuitive and is trained in holistic healing. She makes house calls in Grass Valley and Nevada City, but can also hold sessions over the phone.
