Question: What else do I need to know before coming to La Paw Spa?
Answer: There are many things that will help us to keep the
pool safe and clean for everyone. Here are a few tips:
Please be certain that your dog is brushed before coming to the spa. If
you are self swimming, please be certain to skim the pool of as much hair as
possible after your session as a courtesy to the client who comes in after
If your dog has a problem with incontinence of the bowel or bladder,
please stimulate him or her to urinate or defecate before entering the spa. If
you are uncertain how to express the bladder or stimulate the bowels, then
please let Cindy know and she'll come out and show you at the beginning of your
first session. Its an easy thing to learn and both you and your canine friend
will appreciate knowing how to manage this...
We would appreciate it, for the sake of the people who have to be in the
water, as well as for the health of our canine friends, some of whom are very
chemically sensitive, if you would avoid using commercial flea products like
Advantage on your dog. Advantage is not completely water proof, and inevitably
some of it will end up in the pool. Cindy has many natural flea prevention
methods that she will be glad to discuss with you if the need arises.
