BRANDON — Posh puppy pampering is coming to Brandon.
After 13 years of providing South Tampa dog owners with day care, boarding and grooming, the Puppy Palace will expand to a second location at 802 E Lumsden Road near the corner of Lithia Pinecrest Road.
Puppy Palace of Brandon will feature a facility that is 12,000 square feet, 50 percent larger than the original. Amenities will include six play yards (one indoors and air conditioned) and a 20-foot by 40-foot, saltwater swimming pool in front of the building where passers-by will be able to see the dogs at play.
"Our doggie day care offers your dog an outlet to come play and socialize with other dogs," said Jennifer Berry, who oversees operations for her father and owner, George Conda. "Most dogs are left at home all day cooped up. This gives them a chance to play and get out their energy while mom and dad are at work."
Day care is $26 a day or a 20-day package for $390. Boarding is available daily and cats also are welcome.
Pets stay in a suite (complete with bed, cable TV and Internet cameras so owners can check on their babies). Certified groomers are on staff for haircuts, bathing and nail trimming on all breeds starting at $40.
Berry said if you want to treat your pets like royalty, check them out after their opening, scheduled for April 1. Vaccinations required are bordetella, distemper/parvo and rabies.
