The Downtown Dog Resort & Spa's diverse 10,000-square-foot facility helps its canine guests sleep, exercise, and stay healthy all in one spot. During daycare sessions, pups are matched with friends of similar sizes and temperaments before they clamber over jungle gyms and dive into pools. Doggie treadmills help pooches jog off extra pounds, and obedience training teaches them to avoid the temptation of biting on a check-raise bluff during a game of poker. At night, boarding pups settle into small and large suites replete with heated floors, elevated beds, and overhead air-conditioning. In addition to creature comforts, the hotel also keeps vets from the adjoining Swan Harbor Animal Hospital close to dole out health screenings and respond to any issues that might arise.
Dogs frolic freely through Charm City Dogs' 3,600-square-foot facility, traversing while enthusiastically making new pals with the other pups. Indoors, the dogs are divided into two rubber-floored play areas; one space is reserved for smaller and calmer dogs, and one space houses larger, more active ones. Staffers oversee the canine romps, often adding toys and treats into the mix to keep things interesting. Dogs hang out in Charm City Dogs for both day care and overnight boarding; owners can even bring messy pups over for bathing sessions.
From Atlanta to LA, Park 'N Fly keeps cars safe inside their secured quarters just a quick shuttle ride away from the nearest airport. To make taking a trip more convenient for travelers, they offer 24-hour shuttles that arrive every five minutes, valet parking, and luggage assistance, beyond giving their vehicles a safe place to stay. Their lots are gated, well lit, and monitored.
The shaded grounds of Fieldstone Animal Inn offer a rural respite for dogs and cats. Canines gambol in the outdoor playpen, running up ramps, splashing into pools, and sneaking through tunnels. Cats play in an area separate from the dogs and stay overnight in six-level suites, where they can secretly plot to destroy all laser pointers. Owners can also schedule long walks for exercise. In the spa, the staff cleans and fluffs coats using eco-friendly products, while training sessions work to get dogs behaving as well as they look.
