CRESTVIEW — Downtown Crestview is going to the dogs with two new businesses teaming up to reach Crestview canine lovers.



All Doggy Diva's and Rockstars and Pawsitively Scrumptious Bark Bakery and Boutique are promoting each other's efforts.



Certified dog groomer Alicia Medina and her husband, Johnny — who own the Woodruff Avenue business — have referred customers to the canine treat provider and boutique on the corner of Woodruff Avenue and Main Street. April Meier, the boutique's owner, has returned the favor.



The groomer will offer free dog nail clippings to visitors at the boutique’s grand opening event, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. today.



Meier's business offers baked dog treats, veterinary products for cats and dogs, and other items including pet toys, clothing and leashes.



Meier plans to promote other area dog grooming businesses and veterinary clinics at her store. 



"If businesses that are similar work together, I think the customers are better served," she said. "There is plenty of business to go around."



Want to go?



All Doggy Diva’s and Rockstars — 158 W. Woodruff Ave. — will provide free nail clippings for patrons attending Pawsitively Scrumptious Bark Bakery and Boutique’s grand opening, which is 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 198 N. Main St.
