New "Doggy Styles" pet grooming opens in Soldotna

Forget whatever you might have thought “Going to the dogs” means, because the new Doggy Styles is like a trip to Beverly Hills or a walk down Hollywood Blvd. And you totally don’t want to walk your dog with yesterday’s doo on the streets of Soldotna or Kenai, Alaska has a reputation to maintain. Seriously the newly opened Doggy Styles is like a breath of springtime freshness in Soldotna, thanks to Estaline Cooke, owner of the new pet spa, “We’ve always had dogs in our life and growing up we had show dogs and family pets and I’ve always had a dream of opening a pet spa that has elegance for the pet, the owner and the groomer. When we began the remodel the color we choose was a tribute to my former employer Jim Doyle, it’s his Weaver Brothers blue and represents the freedom of the open road for pets and owners alike rather than a trip to the basement laundry room or garage to wash off muddy paws and doggie odors,” Estaline told the Dispatch in an interview.

Doggie Styles is a modern, spacious, bright and clean pet grooming salon providing professional grooming services for both dogs and cats, “We use Aroma Paws natural grooming products that contain no dyes, parabens or synthetic fragrances. We can accommodate any size dog in our spa tubs from the smallest to the large breeds. We promote a healthy, fun and enjoyable grooming experience for your pet with one on one care and attention,” says Cooke. Doggie Styles is located at the intersection of Kenai Spur Hwy and Parks Ave across from Beemun’s in Soldotna. Creative grooming is sure to become the signature for the new enterprise which features three talented groomers Kendra Post, Kali Topps, and Deandra Buning assisting Estaline, “They can do any style you might imagine. They do airbrush stenciling that is semi-permanent but can give you canine leopard spots in any color you like to match your outfit,” she said. Other services include Mini Grooms and Full Grooms Cat grooming, Creative Grooming, Color, Temporary Designs, Feather Extensions, bling jewelry, “And we have walk in Services for Face Trims, Ear Cleaning, Nail Trim, Nail Polishing and Pawdicure’s.”
