Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
The tanning beds at Kissed by the Sun shine year-round in spite of chilly, snowy, or rainy Pittsburgh forecasts. Level one, two, and three beds house between 54 and 60 bulbs, which cover the entire body in a bronzing glow. Clients can augment their newly acquired color by donning Jwoww Black Bronzer and Bronze Mineral Legs, or by squeezing into bronzed shoes from their childhoods. After regular service hours, the salon opens its doors to bachelorette parties, sororities, prom groups, and social clubs that want to tan in tandem.

Grandma's Dog Daycare LLC corrals canines into a cage-free indoor play zone, socializing them with a combination of supervised games and freeform romping. During daycare visits, professional trainers oversee tail waggers in separate areas for large breeds, smaller dogs, and puppies, which receive special attention from internationally acclaimed belly rubbers. Daily activities keep pets bounding around the play area or atop designated furniture, and are interspersed with treats.
On Saturdays, the daycare hosts classes for both young and adult dogs that coach obedience commands and behavioral tips. The center also opens its small play parks for visits from furry frolickers weighing up to 30 pounds. Ultimately, each program strives to keep its canine clientele engaged, active, and away from bad role models.
