The Pampered Pooch, a recognized chain in the animal grooming business, recently opened up a new store in Royal Oak, Mich. on Rochester Road.
The new owners, Susie Kelley-Whitehouse and her spouse Billy Whitehouse, decided to open their store after becoming familur with Emmy Rhabany, who owns a Pampered Pooch in Auburn Hills, Mich.
The Whitehouses said their store will cater to both cats and dogs. And while they accept walk-ins, they prefer that pet owners set an appointment. The facility currently has three full-time groomers and a bather that charge $25 for a bath, haircut, nails, ears and glands. Once the animal is about 10 minutes away from being finished with the grooming session, employees will then call the owner and tell them that their pet is ready to be picked up.
The Pampered Pooch is located at 4302 Rochester Road in Royal Oak and will be open Monday through Saturday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information go to www.thepamperedpoochinroyaloak.com.
