Dogs can run their fastest during Buddy Boarding's jogging sessions, untethered by a lagging human or a tightening leash. That's because the company's specialists ride roller skates or longboards alongside sprinting canines to match their speed and endurance. They work with dogs of all energy levels, tailoring the sessions to include vigorous exercise or playtime.

At The Pet Spot, a team of over 30 animal-loving dog and cat specialists train and groom the furry guests of their day care and kennel. Felines will vacation in luxury cat condos while their human roommates are out of town, while dogs enjoy plenty of belly rubs, baths, and exercise during daycare and boarding. Each kennel room is climate-controlled and replete with elevated beds, glass windows, and flatscreen televisions showing dog-related programming and local news translated into barks.

The professional animal chaperones go to great lengths to ensure the safety of each pet—they carry out extensive temperament tests to prevent fights, and webcams for owners to check in on their furry friends remotely.

Red Dog Pet Resort & Spa founder Ray Schneider understands why his clients would want to pamper their pups with massage and reiki sessions or warm-water swims. As he told Dan Monk of the Business Courier, "It’s a relationship that’s very hard to explain. When you have a dog, you can understand it.” The Blue Ash resident and entrepreneur created the sprawling, 25,000-square-foot pet hotel—and its second location in Boston—because he realizes the lengths to which people will go to care for their furry friends.

Swathed in upscale atmosphere, the spa is outfitted with all the comforts of home and more; after touring the facilities, Jeff Elkus of David's Voice said, "I wish the last resort I visited had half the amenities of Red Dog." Dogs can stay in private, themed boarding suites with flat-screen TVs and owner-monitored webcams. They exercise and socialize in climate- and airflow-controlled play areas, romp in a three-acre dog park, and don buoyancy vests to soothe achy joints in the heated aquatic center. The hotel also offers multilevel lodging for cats, as well as canine grooming and training services.

Schneider hired and trained a staff for around-the-clock supervision and care. Dogs who are aging, have health issues, or secretly write reviews for Frommer's get special attention in a room with a fireplace and stretch lounges.
