Dawg Daze - Grand Opening TODAY!!

I'm always excited to see new shops open in Midland. So, when on my regular walk a few weeks ago, I saw a sign in a window on Dominion Ave, I kept an eye out, and the first time I saw the open sign on, I went strolling in. She and her husband have made it beautiful in there!

Dawg Daze. Do you just love the name, or what? Her Grand Opening is TODAY (Thursday, March 25, 2010) I'll be there, snapping pics, come on down and watch the mayor cut the ribbon! Dawg Daze is snuggled inbetween Union Taxi and the temp location of Liberty Tax on Dominion, number 513.

Angela has a whole lot of experience jammed into this cozy space on Dominion. Withover 11 years of experience as a professional dog groomer, she's a Certified Animal Care Aide and graduated with honours at Pampered paws Grooming Acadamy.

Angela's energy is light and lively, and I found her so easy to talk with. It seems like she's been everywhere, done everything, and here she is to do what she loves doing - making small dogs look beautiful, and giving advice on how to keep them healthy, from the inside out! She's got an amazing amount of information for the Canine Info Centre portion of her shop. A couple of comfy chairs in the window, a cup of coffee, and you can browse and ask Angela quesitons while you do your research.

This lady is organized! All of her tools, the tub, and grooming table, are all within arms reach, so your dog is never going to feel abandoned on the table. All her tools are disinfected between grooms, there's no cage drying, and she used environmentally safe products. And her prices are pretty incredible,for the care and pampering she gives your pet. Visiting doggies are treated just like beloved children here, under Angela's loving care ( That's what they are, aren't they??)

Angela only grooms small dogs, however, if you have a bigger dog, you can make an appointment to use the big safe tub to groom your own dog for $20! She provides the tub, shampoo, towels, brushes and the dryer. That way, you're not messing up your own bath tub, or chasing a 40+ pound, sopping wet dog around your yard with a hose, or around the house with a towel. (They'll like the pampering much better, here, I'll bet!)

In addition to ALL this, Angela gives grooming lessons! Although she currently teaches classes at Georgian College, you can do this instruction right here in Midland. She'll teach you according to your breed, so you could do this at home and save yourself big dollars in the long run.

Angela has a fan page on facebook where you can connect with Angela and other people who have taken her course, had their dogs groomed, or gotten advice at Dawg Daze, or in her courses.

If you are walking by (with our without your dog!) pop into 513 to grab a brochure and have a chat with Angela, and check out her clean and friendly shop. If you want to ask about specific grooming pricing, give her a quick call at (705)715-8635.

And, at the time of writing, Angela is only accepting cash payements for her services. Be sure to call and confirm with her when you book your appointment.

You should go meet her. She's a pretty amazing person.

Tell her Lori sent you ;)
