London based pet salon The Yuppy Puppy has recently introduced a new service for their pampered clientelle – Mud wraps! Generally mud + dogs is a lot of fun but not considered a “spa therapy”. The Yuppy Puppy has secured Avaha’s highest grade mineral clay for these fine canines. The clay is harvested from the banks of the Dead Sea and is scientifically proven to be essential in maintaining healthy hair, skin and most importantly, joints. The Dead Sea clay has the highest concentration of bromide, magnesium, calcium, silica, sodium, and potassium of any natural body of salt water and mud in the world.
The “Avaha Spa Treatment” starts with you dog being covered in mineral clay. The clay is worked into the hair and down to the skin to impart all of the mineral benefits.
The dog is then loosely wrapped in heat foil to warm the mud and keep them comfy. Your pooch relaxes for 45 minutes as the mud does it’s magic. Unfortunately the spa doesn’t offer magazines or champagne to pass the time while your pup marinates. Afterwards they gently rinse your pet’s coat and skin until all of the clay has been removed and finish with a fluff dry. Most of the Yuppy Puppy clients take a much needed nap at this point in the treatment.
The Avaha Mud Wrap Treament costs $100 USD (60 GBP) and is only available at the Yuppy Puppy in London.
