George (Josh) Meneses, originally from New Haven, Connecticut, raised in Hialeah, FL, and Alan Aghazadian from Manhasset, New York, together moved to Ft. Lauderdale in early 2011. Both in their early forties, lived and worked in Los Angeles in the film and television industry and have been “BFF’s” since 2000.
Alan, a freelance wardrobe stylist for twenty years and Josh, an I.T. expert with twenty three years of loyalty for a major multimedia company, both decided to live out their dreams, and open a doggie day care facility in Wilton Manors, Florida, in August of 2011.
Although the two partners ventured into a new business, they both had twelve years experience between the two of them in the pet service industry. Josh, a graduate from the University of Miami, helped open a boarding and grooming facility in San Diego, California, called Canine Lodge fin 2006. With two locations, now Mr. Meneses has brought the concept of cage free grooming and doggie day care to South Florida and is catering to a level of professionalism and hospitality that our furry four-legged friends deserve.
Alan graduated with an Interior Design degree and spent his early professional life as an interior designer. His interests lead him to become a freelance fashion and wardrobe stylist and dress some of Hollywood’s elite. In 2000, in order to earn extra money, Mr. Aghazadian began working part time at a pet grooming and day care facility in West Hollywood, California called Pet Spa. Always having had pets himself and his experience at the Pet Spa, Alan discovered his passion for the pet service industry.
With both of their experiences, talents and love for animals, Josh and Alan have brought a fresh approach to animal care. Safety and cleanliness are their main focus on the 3000 square foot indoor dog park and cage-free grooming. Hypoallergenic synthetic turf designed especially for animals and recycled materials make Wilton’s Manor Doggie Daycare & Grooming a fun, safe and responsible environment for pets to socialize and play.
It seems every dog does have its day.
