  • Ak Must Love Dogs
    AK Must Love Dogs' owner Marlene Britton embraces the Cesar Millan method of dog discipline in all her services, whether it's keeping dogs from getting lonesome during workdays or caring for them during vacations. Drop off doggy dependents for daycare ($18/half-day; $26/full-day), where canines expunge excess energy and practice flash-mob routines with one another amid 12,000 square feet of outdoor space and three interior play areas. The 8'x4' pet suites ($30/day) house hounds overnight in private quarters outfitted with carpeting, a bed, and an occasional treat after they've spent the day cavorting with similar-sized pooches in the daycare area. Otherwise, scrub away the evidence that you ever tried to dye your pet green for St. Patrick's Day in one of AK Must Love Dogs’ canine-cleaning stations while skipping the fur-coated bathtub ($15/self-service; $25/AKMLD staff). Customers who opt for daycare or pet-suite services must schedule a temperament test ($15) prior to bringing in their dog for boarding.

Alternatively, clients can don lingerie or pose for tasteful nude shots during boudoir sessions that aim to capture their sensual side.

  • Tundra Twist - Alaska (Auntie Anne's)
    In 1988, Auntie Anne's founders Anne and Jonas Beiler purchased a Pennsylvania farmers'-market stand, where they experimented with dough until they created a pretzel that seemed to strike the perfect chord with their customers. Today, at their more than 1,150 locations worldwide, the pretzel makers still hand roll the original recipe but have added to the menu with inventive options, such as the pepperoni pretzel and eight signature dipping sauces. The team constantly explores new uses for the pretzel dough, such as wrapping it around hot dogs, slicing it into bite-size nuggets, or using it to build historically accurate Austrian villages. To transform the snack into a meal, they accompany it with specialty drinks, including frozen-lemonade desserts. When not twisting dough, Auntie Anne's team partners with the national charitable organization Alex?s Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises funds to fight childhood cancer. Auntie Anne's also reaches out to the community through fundraising opportunities.
