Probably not, but knew that if it existed at all, it would be here.
Last weekend I was looking at my shaggy, panting dog thinking time for a little trim. But now in Brooklyn, and with him being 102 (not exactly, but close) - and not being able to walk much farther than about a block, the idea of getting a car service (cabs sadly aren't readily available on my block) and schlepping to a "doggie spa" somewhere nearby - somewhere new, didn't sound appealing. Bring him into the city & to the local place near my mom's and office? Also, not something I really wanted to do.
Thought bubble: There must be someone who comes to your house & does this, right? I used to have someone cut my hair at my apartment... Sure enough. Results above.
From a few to choose from, I chose The Pet Maven. Why? The site was easy to use. Cutesy and not all that modern, but still professional. (Proving again, websites do matter.) But mostly because the woman who owns the company, Helen, had a previous career doing marketing research for top Fortune companies. And because of that, had the feeling she'd be capable, professional. And she was - from the first call, scheduling, getting there on time, the work she did... (or Harry allowed her to do.)
As far as the vendor choice I made, it was the right one. And trying something new, that too. But with an old man like Harry, getting him to do anything - especially standing for a few hours while he is washed, dried & shaved - isn't so easy. Maybe it never has been - and no one ever told me the truth when I asked how he dealt. But then, I just dropped him off and came back to see, and enjoy, the results. Watching the ordeal, holding him down at times, not as much fun. To put it mildly.
Not sure if I'll do that one again. I guess part of the decision will be whether or not Helen will come back and deal with the ordeal that is Harry. And the other, deciding which hassle I want to put myself through to keep the old man clean...
