With today's side deal, you can give the dog you love a vacation from the stress of his high-pressure squirrel-chasing job. For $50, both new and existing clients get $150 worth of pet boarding and canine-pampering services from Pooch Hotel in Sunnyvale. You must use the Groupon's full value at one time.
With 15,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor play space, your mutt will be able to run in circles and bark at the invisible aliens free of guilt or any sense of propriety (daycare starts at $35 a day). Dogs are segregated by size, age, and temperament in play areas, so two-pound Chaingun won't be able to pick on the bigger dogs like he always does. When night falls, fidos enjoy blissful dreams of fat, slow rabbits in either a plush private space or a group sleeping room for those who prefer the stinky camaraderie of the pack (accommodations starting at $50 a night for junior suite). There's even a lap pool so your scruffy buddy can finally nail the backstroke ($30 a session). Cross the rubicon into pet obsession by springing for with an aromatherapy bath (starting at $35 for pooches less than 30 pounds) or a pawdicure ($20). Though the hotel is manned 24/7 by chronic belly-rub-giver-outers, you can always check in on your four-legged life partner via webcam.
Yelpers give Pooch Hotel a near-perfect 4.5 stars:
- Crash comes back from his stays completely and wonderfully wiped out. We love the web cam, and have also had Crash bathed...He smells like a dream...The staff are incredibly friendly and clearly really love the pups... – Tracey P.
- It is reassuring to know that our dog is happy and well taken [sic] care of while we are gone. – B W.
- Thanks to daycare, we enjoyed a day of shopping and dinner, and we even got a report card when we picked up my puppy; just like humans!!!...I would recommend this place to anyone that needs to leave their pet in trusted hands. – Masami H.
