Tired of getting the sad puppy eyes when you leave for work everyday? Consider Doggy Daycare. Tina Wehrs and McKenzie Bowman worked together at a pet spa in Wisconsin, but when they moved to Wilson County they couldn’t find a facility like the one they loved, so they decided to open one themselves.
“We could not find a facility that offered a kennel free, fear free, home away from home environment that we believe in wholeheartedly,” explained Tina, “So, we decided to open up our own and that is the current Nashville Pet Spa!”
Nashville Pet Spa is located at 12007 Lebanon Road in Mt. Juliet, offering daycare for as little as $25-35 per day, depending on the length of their stay. Imagine watching your companion on the playground via three high resolution cameras throughout the day, playing with his friends instead of shredding the pillows or eating socks while bored at home.
“When dogs come in the door, they often run right in and right back to daycare to see their favorite friends! They develop deep relationships and friendships with the other dogs and the staff,” she says, “With over 10,000 square feet of outdoor play yards, the dogs are able to run and play and be dogs.”
During the summertime your fur-family member will enjoy playing in the sprinklers, pools plus has the option to hang out inside with the AC on if water isn’t their forte.
The duo share a love of dogs, especially rescues, and are passionate about the importance of rescuing, population control and animal welfare advocacy. Not only have they fostered hundreds of dogs for Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue, they each have a collection of rescue dogs at home. McKenzie has five dogs, Savanna (Doberman) Norman (Doodle), JoJo (French rescue), Alfifi (Mini Poodle) and Dutchess (Shepherd rescue) and Tina has three, Bailey, Lulu, and Franklin, all rescues.
“We truly just love dogs,” they say, “Several of our regulars have become extended family. You’ll notice our lobby becomes our geriatric unit, where many of our sweet senior friends get to hang out as official greeters when they’re with us.”
Tina says Wilson County has welcomed them with wide open arms.
“We love this community so much. We have built this special place for people and dogs with the help of every employee who has cared for our clients’ dogs as their very own. We are grateful to be part of this amazing community and we look forward to continuing to be a second home for dogs for many years to come.”
With two locations, a second in Pleasant View, the owners say their 55 staff members are the backbone of everything they do, inspiring and motivating each other to be the absolute best place for dogs every single day. Along with daycare, Nashville Pet Spa offers overnight stays, and even spa services from nails to baths to full groom, and that’s definitely something to wag your tail about.
