A new, mobile dog grooming spa will be open for business on Nov. 30 in Brentwood and Franklin communities.

Le Dogg Spa is an up-scale, luxury mobile salon for dogs that comes directly to your home. It was founded by pet stylist Windy Haugen, who moved here from Illinois to start her own business.

After successfully running Dippity Doo Dawg in Illinois, she has now started Le Dogg Spa as a way to connect with animals and stay up to date on pet trends and changes.

Haugen has training from esteemed pet facilities Paragon, Nash Academy and Groom-A-Dog Academy and has learned dog psychology. She uses soothing music to calm nervous dogs as well, a technique that has been shown to work.

Colorado State University conducted a study in 2012 on the behavioral effects of auditory stimulation on kenneled dogs.

The results found that when listening to classical music like Beethoven and Bach, heartbeat levels were at around 100 beats per minute. When the dogs listened to more intense music like Slayer and Judas Priest, heartbeat rates spiked to over 140 beats per minute.

Haugen is known to sing and hum to the dogs she grooms and believes it’s important to provide a calming environment.

Le Dogg Spa features blueberry facials, which have a natural exfoliating activity and antioxidants for pet hair, aromatherapy and ear and face massages. Haugen also offers jetted hydro massages, fluff drying for lasting beauty and one-on-one personal service.

The mobile spa is equipped with technology like a hydrotherapy bathing system, advanced air circulation, hot, clean water and a stainless steel tub.

Le Dogg Spa’s services start at $75, but can fluctuate due to size, breed and temperament of the dog. They have a 70-pound weight limit and specialize in small to medium breeds. Appointments are booked one to two weeks in advance with a 48-hour cancellation notice.
