Pooch Palace opens today at its new location, 821 S. Main Street.
The folks from Kruepke Printing Inc. took advantage of mild temps on Friday and put up the new signs. Dawn Dunker moved her dog grooming salon about 100 feet around the corner from her previous location in the Decorah Shopping Center.
Pooch Palace is just to the south of Jeff’s Spirits on Main, in the spot formerly home to Snap Fitness.
The new location features a large grooming area, bathing room, kennels and tons of space for a new doggy daycare.
Owner Dunker established Pooch Palace in 1996. She said the move was a lot of work but worth it.
“There were a lot of obstacles to overcome but everybody’s been so supportive,” said Dunker.
During a walking tour late Friday afternoon Dunker swept her arm across the huge open space for the doggy day care. “We have the tubs back here where the showers used to be for Snap Fitness,” she said.
The south wall is a checkerboard mix of light blue, pink and red panels. Pooch Palace opens at 8 a.m.
