A trip to the salon always gets us excited, so why should the experience be any different for your pooch? Now it doesn't have to, thanks to the brand-spankin'-new City Dogs pet-grooming salon in South Beach, which brings a modern touch and a sharp design to a previously mundane experience for man's little (or big) best friend. Grooming pets since 1996, owner Bernie Machado has garnered accolades and local awards for her first shop, Bernie's Grooming, still located inside the Animal Care and Control building in the Mission. And opening this sister shop has always been her dream. A wide-open transparent space, mixed with cool vintage finds, City Dogs is the perfect spot to settle into a pair of rad chairs from the '40s and sip a coffee while Fido is getting his glam on. Bonus: Despite its name, City Dogs doesn't discriminate when it comes to four-legged creatures, offering grooming services for cats, guinea pigs, and rabbits, too!
