Pampering Your Pooch in Cambridge

After weeks of frigid temperatures and brutal winds, most of us find our skin needs a little TLC. You may not realize it, but your pet's skin, coat, and nails are just as sensitive to the cold — and heat — as yours are. If you'd like to treat your best friend to a spa day this winter, here are a few local spots where you can pamper your pooch.
