Pet Tested, Owner Approved

Bella Woof Spa is an awesome little business right in the middle of little Italy! I took my dog there for puppy classes, which was so much fun and super useful. The owners are amazing and care about all their customers and everything in their shop, from products to classes to grooming. My dog's first haircut was here and their groomers did an incredible job and I continue to bring my fur baby back regularly. They're definitely your go-to place for anything regarding your pets!
