Little pups get doted on like precious newborns at this doggy spa—staff even refer to them as "babies." Visitors can make their way around the "nursery" and peek inside the bassinets lining the walls to browse potential furry friends. Though the shop specializes in toy and teacup breeds like Havanese or Shih Tzus, larger dogs like Siberian Huskies and Golden Retrievers are available as well. Once you find the perfect pal to take home, utilize the shop for convenient one-hour grooming (complete with perfume and accessories) as well as discounts on vet care.
