IT’S A DOG’S LIFE: Top to tail pam­per­ing at lux­ury dog spa

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - FAMILY ANNOUNCEMENTS -

LUCKY Missy the dog. For her birth­day, her owner booked her in for a pam­per at the Waglife Spa in Folkestone’s Old High Street. Jane Jem­mett and part­ner An­ne­mieke Hart­man, started an on­line store two years ago, stock­ing ev­ery­thing the dis­cern­ing dog owner with a taste for lux­u­ries could de­sire. But a trip to New York con­vinced the pair, them­selves de­voted to their cairn ter­ri­ers Archie and Ally, to go a step fur­ther and open a venue that of­fered more than the av­er­age poo­dle par­lour. Dogs are wel­comed into the spa, opened with the help of the Creative Foun­da­tion, to the sooth­ing sounds of mu­sic only au­di­ble to ca­nine ears. They en­joy a comb and a brush, wash with a spe­cial sham­poo and con­di­tioner de­vel­oped by a brand bet­ter known in hair­dress­ing, a towel dry and clip. A nail file is also used and af­ter a fi­nal brush, fol­lowed by a treat, the new-look dog is re­turned to its owner, thor­oughly spoiled. Groomer Emma Gomez is also qual­i­fied in an­i­mal care and can ad­vise own­ers on all as­pects of pet care. Waglife works with an an­i­mal be­haviourist Pippa Ducat, who can help with any un­usual an­tics.
