Seasons greetings! 5 ways to prepare your pup for the holidays


In some parts of the country, the snow is coming down hard and Christmas lights are coming up in anticipation of the holiday season. Although, here in Arizona, we are blessed to have 80 degree days in deep November. But, that doesn’t change the fact the Phoenix Zoo lights are up and the holidays are among us! 

While this Christmas may be different than any other season due to COVID-19, we can still get excited for the most wonderful time of the year. This includes showering our beloved humans and animals with gifts and love for the holidays. Exceptional Pets has made it easy to check off everything on your to-do list for your pup during the holidays. 

Local Pet Grooming

Before taking your holiday photo by the tree with matching pj’s or Christmas sweaters with the family, be sure your dog is looking his or her best! Before going to your local Exceptional Pets store, schedule an appointment for our styling salon and spa grooming services. We can accommodate any breed of dog with our extensive pampering capabilities. 

Doggie Day Camp

Available at our Mesa and Chandler location, our doggie day camp is the perfect opportunity to let your dog socialize while mom preps the house for guests. Our doggie camp specialists supervise your pup closely to make sure they are having their best day of fun. Check out our prices here

Vet Payment Plan 

We get it, your pup might have an unexpected health issue, and it always has poor timing. The holidays can be tough to make sure your family is taken care of, that’s why at Exceptional Pets we have vet payment plan options for you. We want to make sure your pup is getting the best care possible. Check out our vet payment plan options and see which one works for you. (Vet care at the Chandler, Mesa, and Cave Creek locations)

Dog Wellness Plan

To take precautions over your dog having an unexpected health issue, enroll in a dog wellness plan. Pet wellness plans are helpful for dogs that are in need of routine care. Click here to read more about our dog wellness plans.

Dog Overnight Boarding 

Unfortunately, not all of us can take our beloved pups while traveling. However, you can rest easy during the holidays knowing that your dog is in good hands at Exceptional Pets dog overnight boarding. All stays come with three, twenty-minute walks per day, a daily snack, and after four nights, your exit bath is on us or we credit you $15 in spa services. Learn more about our holiday resorts for dog overnight boarding!
