Forget the smile, wagging tail and panting tongue. Once the pile of fur at your feet hears about Waterloo, Australia’s luxury dog retreat, that damp tennis ball and novelty squeaking hot dog won’t cut it anymore.
Part kennel, doggy day care, grooming facility and training classroom, PawPaws has everything you didn’t know mutts want. Sleeping dogs lie in eight themed nurseries, outfitted with custom furniture and entertainment. Doggie guests that visit the Frangipani, Rose and Tigerlily Salons are treated to washes and blown-waves and cuts styled with signature products derived from “derived from organic ingredients and essential oils.” After spending time on PawPaws’ rooftop “Sky Park” play terrace, mutts line-up for a rubdown at the spa, where they relax as a spindly, creepy guy gives them a Kokum Butter massage, a Black Vanilla Bean Rub or a Himalayan Mineral soak in one of the retreat’s handmade stone tubs.
If your dog is feeling naughty, it’ll be taught some manners at the “School of Deportment,” while bad bitches will be forced to wag tail on the stripper pole. [via pawpaws]
