The requirements for the planning that eliminate any accident due to falling, thus we planned to remove the existing staircases from in both the building and the approach to have steps with gentle slope (dog steps) that little puppies should be able to go up and down.

We have adopted zigzag path for the approach and having set a reception counter in the center of the salon which makes enough space to have the dog steps for some places of the salon. The dog steps have aimed as a safety feature and make rhythmic atmosphere. We hope that you and your puppies will be enjoy here.
