Business Close-up: Pawz N Clawz offers pet food, grooming
Dogs and cats will get the royal treatment when they visit Pawz N Clawz in Rhinelander. This pet store that offers lots of natural food brands and dog grooming opened in August and is owned by Dan and Shirlee Gallagher. April Peter is the manager.
One of the services at Pawz N Clawz is grooming. There are three groomers so getting a pet in for a trim and bath is fast. Natural and healthy products are used as far as shampoos and conditioners too. All dog sizes and breeds are welcome and there are different price ranges depending on the requested trim or bath. Appointments are necessary and only canines are groomed here.
“Dogs with longer hair need to be groomed more often,” April said. “Mats can cause lots skin problems as well as being uncomfortable.”
In addition, there is a complete and wide range of natural and healthy dog and cat foods available. Trusted brand names such as Natural Balance, Canine Cavier, Origen, Native, Earth Born, Blue Buffalo, Fromm and Canidae are offered. All of these foods are made in the USA (Fromm is produced in Wisconsin) and all are free of corn, wheat and soy by-products. Cat food is also available. Brand names such as Pride, Instinct and Wilderness are favorites.
These foods come in a wide variety of flavors and textures including canned. There is even a section of frozen raw pet food including ice cream treats. Another favorite among the canine crowd are all the different types of snacks offered.
Rawhide treats are always a favorite and there are plenty of those to choose from in many different shapes and sizes. Knuckle bones, Greenies, healthy dental treats and even handmade doggie cookies are on display.
Dog and pet supplies are also available. There are lots of doggie coats to choose from in every size, color and fabric option. There are even little Santa outfits. Leashes and collars are also favorites. These come in a wide variety of sizes as well as plenty of interesting and unique designs to complement any doggie outfit.
Vitamins and supplements are available including salmon oil for shiny and healthy coats. There is also a section of brushless dental care products.
Of course, toys are always a favorite and there is a wide range to choose from. Pet safe stuffed animals that can take a beating fill an entire section as well as balls and lots of squeaky critters. There are even interactive games that dogs and their human friends can play together.
