Chandigarh 28th November:--- Dog has been referred to frequently as "man's best friend". Tri-city especially Chandigarh has a large population of Dog lovers who keep dog pets of varied breeds in their homes. The breeds which find place in the hearts and homes of this Dog loving clientele is varied; ranging from Rottweiler's, German Shepherds, Labradors to Spaniels and so on. However these pets are deprived of proper training, grooming and medical care. The pet supporting outlets which have mushroomed in the Tri-city claiming to cater to needs of pets are all owned and managed by 'non professionals', who are not experts of in the field. This obviously meant that no outlet, owned and handled by a professional, was so far in existence in the Tri-city area. Not anymore. This long felt vacuum in this arena has now been filled by arrival of a certified expert -- Sikander Singh who is the founder member of Panchkula Kennel Club and the Rottweiler Club of India. Sikander announced the launch of "Planet Pets", a   one of its kind, state of the art Pet destination in the Tricity, at SCO 98, MDC, Sector 5, Panchkula. The launch event saw showcasing of rare dog breeds including the only 'Borzoi' dog – a Russian breed, in whole of Asia.  The unique breed was the centre of attraction at the launch of 'Planet Pets '. Borzoi is a breed which was propagated by Tsars, the erstwhile Russian Royalty and is available mainly in Russia.

 Sikandar Singh who got his training in Thailand and is now one of Asia's top Rottweiler breeder, says, "I keep traveling all over the world to participate with my breeds in Dog shows and also to offer consultancy to clients. During my travels abroad, i had witnessed the smooth functioning of one stop shops for all pet needs and therefore i thought of pioneering this concept in North India starting from tri-city." Adds Sikander, "My motive is also to spread awareness about the need for overall upkeep of pets and for the same, i will be conducting free seminars and checkup camps for dogs and cats every month." Sikander is ably supported by Utkarsh Rathore a famous dog grooming professional, who has trained from Starwood Arts Dog Grooming School, Bangkok. Rathore gave a live demonstration of grooming, which is the USP of Planet Pets. It was informed that for dog grooming, in USA, American Kennel Club standards are used while India this is governed by Belgium based FCI (Federation Cynologique Internationale or World Canine Organization). Says Rathore, "Every breed has its standard as far as grooming and cut is concerned. Pet cuts are popular these days as these can give looks of Micky Mouse, Donut, Teddy Bear etc to your pet dogs. The other popular styles are more on the professional front and are known as Show Cuts. Planet Pet will be the only destination which will provide this kind of customized cuts for specific breeds." Various types of scissors are the most important items in the kit. The three pivotal scissors being: Straight Cut, Curved, and thinning.

 'Planet Pets' as the name suggests will be a 360 degree solution provider for all pet needs. Apart from grooming it has a well equipped vet clinic run by top Veterinary Surgeons of North India and is geared not only for treatment & vaccination but also for surgery, cataract removal, dentistry, hospitalization and boarding. What's more, the outlet is fully stocked with pet needs like genuine Dog Foods with free dietary guidance & Dog accessories all provided at factory rates. Not only this, even puppies of various breeds are available at this pet outlet.  Sikander Singh, who has been regularly organizing Dog Shows in Panchkula, has also started free home delivery & pick-up facility for dogs. Money will buy you a dog, but it won't buy the wag of its tail or his obedience or his love. So look after your pet with the support of "Planet Pets" and enjoy happy hours with your well trained and well groomed Pet.
