Bessie Hostetter, owner of Dapper Dog & Fancy Feline, Inc. (DDFF), has announced that the pet salon continues to expand. Because of the number of animals now being cared for, pet owners are encouraged to call a week or two ahead of time for an appointment. The phone number is 293-7200.
The pet salon is located at 54595 CR 17, in the Six Span Crossing commercial development. Three pet stylists now assist Bessie in the grooming of furry clients. T
hey are Christina Gunn, Nikki Croy, and Austynne Kidulas. Chris is the American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter for the salon.
With Halloween just around the corner, pet owners might like to know that DDFF can add color to dogs’ hair, when appropriate. This is a service that is perhaps unique in this area. Some dogs receive feather extensions, pony tails, even Mohawks.
Hours at the salon are 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Flexible appointments are available throughout the posted hours by calling the number above. Nail trims are done on a walk-in basis for $7.00.
Bessie and her groomers are committed to providing pet styling for all breeds of dogs and cats. She says that “none are too big, none are too small, and none are too difficult for us to try to accommodate.” Patrons with hard-to-handle pets are invited to accept that invitation. With only rare exceptions, Bessie and her colleagues have been able to satisfactorily meet the challenges placed before them.
Dapper Dog & Fancy Feline offers teeth brushing for any of the pets brought to them for grooming, as well as “how to” lessons about proper techniques for brushing and combing animal pets.
Bessie says that “we sell the products we use in the salon.” This includes such items as shampoos, conditioners, and colognes. More i
