Camp Bow Wow’s canine counselors—all rigorously trained in pup health care and behavior—lavish pooches with attention and stimulation while their owners are away at work or on trips. Before being left for daycare or boarding, a dog and owner will first attend a three-hour meet and greet at any time during Camp Bow Wow's normal business hours, during which new recruits can be monitored for their play behavior, sociability, and celebrity likeness. Then, under staffers’ watchful gazes, pups can frolic all day in three spacious indoor-outdoor play areas in which they are grouped by temperament and size to prevent unfair matches of Trivial Pursuit. Dogs staying overnight receive a treat before bedding down in their own spacious cabin, equipped with a fleece blanket and comfortable bed. Feel free to peep at four-legged companions at leisure with live camper cams, which broadcast feeds of Camp Bow Wow's play rooms spliced with breaking news of royal pet weddings.
Cut and delivered weekly from Little Switzerland Tree Farm in Spruce Pine, the living décor at JD Christmas Trees rings in the holiday season with crisp pine scents and verdant, ornament grasping needles. Grade A, hand-selected fraser firs fill homes with towering 6’ ($70+) to 10’ ($100+) tannenbaums, spacious enough to accommodate extensive ornament collections and homemade decorations made from W2 forms. Small ($40), medium ($45), and large ($50) bases from Ultimate Christmas Tree Stands stabilize arboreal housemates, and decorative wreaths ($30+) bring the Christmas spirit to doorways like a band of caroling ghostbusters.
At Mount Tabor Boarding and Grooming, furry companions stretch out in overnight suites, frolic with other pets in three play yards with natural grass, or receive makeovers from professional groomers. The kennel’s orthopedic mattresses usher canines into dreams of chasing cars and rescuing bacon from wells, while aromatherapy-scented condos give cats a sense of relaxation and superiority. A fresh air exchange system inside the kennel kicks out odors and keeps pets breathing easy. Pet stylists trim overgrown claws, shampoo fur, and uncoil fur tangles with thorough brushing. During pre-boarding consultations, staffers evaluate each pet's needs and ability to get along with other animals.
At Montross Quarter Horses, Inc., instructors John and Laura Montross teach students of all skill levels how to ride starting at the age of four. Backed by vast experience, the duo combines its equestrian expertise during private and semi-private lessons, offered in both English and Western riding styles. Lessons are tailored to individual goals, and emphasize fundamentals, proper horsemanship, and proper grooming techniques. The Montross' facility presents students with a number of different riding areas, including trails and indoor and outdoor arenas for year-round practicing.
wholePET is brimming with toys, treats, and supplies for furry companions. Bones come in both plush and rawhide form, preventing dogs from gnawing on furniture or decorative skeletons, and colorful Up Country collars stylishly keep pets on their leash. Outfits, beds, and bowls round out the stock of pet necessities, complemented by bags of food and decorative treats. Although four-legged companions come first at wholePET, they carry a variety of gifts for pet lovers as well, such as t-shirts and mugs.
Brier Creek Pet Hotel proprietor Lisa Sarvas is a veterinarian who also breeds and shows dogs. The pet hotel—which offers both daycare and boarding—is an extension of her love for animals.

Overnight guests bunk down in private suites with access to a covered outdoor run; upgrades include elevated beds, televisions, and exclusive exercise space. There's also a groomer on staff to make sure dogs look their best for any upcoming dates with fire hydrants.
