Sunday, January 25, 1 - 5 PM
Downtown at the Gardens (Palm Beach Gardens)
We care so much about making sure every dog in America gets the regular maintenance they need that, for one afternoon a year, we make it totally FREE.
Yep, FREE. No excuses, y'all: great venue, family-friendly, free prizes, stuff for the kids, dog care and training demonstrations, adoptions, and FREE Scenthound Express services.
What's a Scenthound Express, you say? (Oh, you've been missing out!) That's a bath + towel-dry, ear-cleaning, nail-trimming, and teeth-brushing -- all while you wait. Normally, it's $25 (which is still an amazing value), but at Dog Care Awareness Day it's totally free. That's how much we believe in our service and how confident we are that you'll love it, too. Plus, our dog care experts will be on hand showing you how to trim your dog's nails and clean her ears. We'll have lots of helpful info and fun stuff to do, face-painting and balloon animals for the kids, the list goes on. It's really a fun, informative--and did we mention FREE?--event.
And remember: The kind of basic but essential care that Scenthound provides can prevent a bunch of moderate to severe health problems, from infections and pain to injuries and arthritis -- and even add years to your dog's life. We're passionate about showing people how easy, affordable, and fun it can be to stay on top of your pup's well-being. So plan on joining us on the 25th, and help us forward our mission of giving dogs the happy, healthy lives they deserve. Come to Downtown at the Gardens, have a bite to eat at one of their many restaurants, and then head on over to our tents. See you there!
Want more? Here are the deets from the official press announcement:
Pet Groomerie owner Tim Vogel formed Scenthound in 2013, with a mission to revolutionize the dog care industry by offering fast, inexpensive, basic grooming to all dog owners, not just traditional grooming clients. Vogel began by operating out of a mobile grooming salon at various Palm Beach County locations such as Jupiter neighborhoods, Pet Supermarket, and Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Pet Groomerie donates a portion of its proceeds from rescue events to Peggy Adams a in support of their shared commitment to educating and empowering dog owners so that pets stay in happy, healthy, lifelong homes.
Vogel says, "I've found that most dogs go without regular grooming simply because people don’t realize their dogs need it. It's a sad fact that 80 percent of dogs over age 3 have periodontal disease that could have been prevented by regular tooth-brushing. Other dogs develop infections and muscular-skeletal issues from nails that were allowed to grow too long. I wanted to offer a service that both educates dog owners on the basic care their dog needs to remain healthy and that is fast, convenient, and less expensive than a full grooming session." The Scenthound Express is available by appointment and on a walk-in basis at area events and also at both Pet Groomerie salons; for $25 dogs get all the essentials while their owner waits: wash and towel-dry, ear-cleaning, teeth-brushing, and nail-trimming. He adds, “We're really passionate about changing the way people understand 'grooming,’ It's for more than good looks - it's critical for dogs’ health, too."
The “Dog Care Awareness” event at Downtown at the Gardens is free and family-friendly. Dog owners are encouraged to bring their dogs to the event for a free Scenthound Express service as well as a wealth of information on extending and enhancing their dogs’ lives. Since this is a public event with a large turnout expected, dogs in attendance should be friendly, leashed and up to date on rabies vaccination.
